2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • The phone is a grease magnet
  • Display could have had better resolution
  • Average battery life
  • Average loudspeaker
  • The camera is a bit slow, especially in the HDR mode
  • Although day-to-day performance is decent, but heavier tasks/games make the phone stutter
  • No fingerprint sensor
  • 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
