2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Full metal unibody design, and good build quality
  • Rounded sides make it comfortable to hold
  • The fingerprint scanner is generally quick and easy to use
  • Very good display - bright and vivid with decent sunlight legibility - great for watching videos and games
  • Samsung's UI over Android 6.0 is neat and simple while adding a number of additional features like one-handed operation mode, smart alert makes the phone vibrate when you pick it up to notify you about missed calls and messages, easy mute, S bike mode, Ultra data saving mode, and locking/privacy options
  • Decent all-round performance - handles almost everything you throw at it - including games, and multi-tasking
  • Decent rear and front cameras under daylight conditions - most of the shots taken by the smartphone have decent colours and are crisp - and the handset is able to lock focus quickly
  • Video recording quality is decent too and audio is also crisp
  • Decent loudspeaker output
  • Good call quality
  • Good audio quality
  • Decent battery life - lasts a day with moderate use
  • High quality, premium design, with a metal frame
  • Slim body
  • Well built
  • Beautiful, large display with good brightness levels, contrast, and viewing angles
  • Sony's UI over Android is pretty nice
  • Sony's multimedia apps are better than their stock Android equivalents
  • Good speed/performance in regular use
  • Useful one-handed mode
  • Excellent primary camera with good quality stills and video
  • Excellent selfie camera - offers high-quality stills and videos, great dynamic range, especially with HDR
  • Loudspeaker is loud, and offers good quality
  • Good audio quality via headphones too
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • Lacks ambient light sensor, gyroscope and magnetic sensor
  • The fingerprint scanner works well mostly, but can be iffy at times
  • Low light camera performance could have been better
  • Tends to crash/heat-up occasionally when put under stress
  • Lacks support for quick charging (which is present in some of its competitors)
  • Large size phones such as the XA Ultra are of course not the easiest to carry around or handle (it's subjective - some people love large devices like these, and others don't)
  • The phone is also on the heavy side, and can put some strain on your hand after prolonged use
  • Average gaming performance
  • HDR image processing by the camera is on the slow side
  • Battery life is decent, but could have been better
