A huge screen, great battery life and a price tag that's around half of that of flagship phones makes the Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra top buy for those after an affordable phablet.

Expert Reviews

There’s little you can fault with the XA2 Ultra. It’s great to look at; the rear camera produces excellent-quality stills and video; and it’s got a really solid battery life.

- Edward Munn, Expert Reviews
Tech Advisor

The Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra is a weird phone. Sony could have made a svelte mid-range Xperia at a lower cost than its flagships, but has instead made a £379 chunky mess.

- Henry Burrell, Tech Advisor
GSMArena

The Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra is a well thought out smartphone, you can tell that right away. It packs the power punch to succeed in the mid-range, throws a high-end 23MP camera in the mix, and that large 6" screen looks very tempting. Not to mention the stellar battery life.

- GSMArena team, GSMArena
Alphr

There’s very little to complain about with the XA2 Ultra. It might be oversized but, depending on your outlook, the size could actually be seen as a positive thing, especially since the phone is so good in other areas.

- Jonathan Bray, Alphr

A seriously huge phone built for selfies

from TrustedReviews

The Sony XA2 Ultra will be a niche device, but it’s one of the only options on the market if you want a big-screen Android phone without breaking the bank.
