Display Review

The main feature of this device, is the huge screen. At 6.0 inches, the IPS display has a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels.

In my own experience, Sony screens are usually second best, just after Samsung.

This may be attributed to the fact that they also make TV screens.

Currently, midrange phones are coming with 1080 by 1920, this is necessary for the modern games and apps.

In this day, app come with high quality graphics, you also need a phone that can take full advantage of his.

The Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra is such a phone. also, the pixel density is 367: so you it is definitely a quality screen from Sony.


Since the primary camera is the same with that of its small brother, you can go ahead and reads its review.

In the front facing camera, things get different. at 16MP, the quality of pictures the Ultra takes will be significantly better than the normal “XA1”.

Group Selfie

A strong advantage to not is this, the front facing camera has a laser autofocus. Other companies have been shy when it comes to upgrading the selfies. How we are glad Sony is not like the rest.


The smartphone, also stands out in this category.

Surely, 4GB can be able to handle any game and applications. Another thing, if, multi-tasking, you will experience very minimal lag when switching between apps.

Coming to the processor; Octa-core MediaTek Helio P20 CPU ensures that intensive games also run smoothly. It is crucial in launching apps fast and ensuring that the phone doesn’t overheat
