What the Critics Are Saying...


Tech Advisor

The Xperia XA2 sits in a slightly odd place. It offers solid specs and performance for the price, but the 16:9 screen and chunky body are already out of step with the competition, and the camera just can’t keep up at all.

- Dominic Preston, Tech Advisor
IT Pro

We feel confident in saying that this is one of the best phones Sony has produced for ages. For the price, it looks great, lasts a long time and takes (mostly) great pictures. We look forward to seeing what Sony unveils next.

- Nathan Spendelow, IT Pro
TechRadar

The Sony Xperia XA2 is a solid Android phone at a sensible price, although the design will date quickly and the real-world battery stamina doesn't quite seem to match the spec.

- Andrew Williams, TechRadar
PhoneArena

Offers good value for their money, and despite the few minor issues here and there, I'd say that they'll satisfy users who want to get the most bang for their buck and don't want to spend a fortune on a new phone.

- Peter Kostadinov, PhoneArena
Expert Reviews

The Xperia XA2 is a seriously impressive smartphone, made even better by its highly reasonable asking price. Its display is fantastic, battery life is good and the handset itself looks like something you've paid twice as much for.

- Nathan Spendelow, Expert Reviews

Sony steps things up in the mid-range

from Stuff

Probably the best mid-ranger Sony has made in a while, the XA2 might not mix up the traditional Xperia look but it has hardware that ticks almost all the boxes.

Has the DNA of a best-seller

The Sony Xperia XA2 is a proper upgrade to the XA1 in terms of hardware. The latest available Android OS surely adds up for the very positive impressions. Our only issue was with the selfie downgrade - the 8MP wide-angle camera has lost the autofocus and the brighter aperture compared to the XA1.

TrustedReviews

Mid-range specs, mid-range looks

from TrustedReviews

The XA2 is a nice spec-bump over the XA1 and there are a few welcome additions in the form of a higher-res screen and Snapdragon CPU. But Sony's design is still behind the pack and with lots of budget options moving to a slicker build.

Slots right into that sweet spot between premium and budget

from Pocket-lint

The XA2 hits the sweet spot where you get an excellent set of specs and decent design for a great price. Definitely worth consideration if you're in the market for a mid-range handset.
