    The Sony Xperia XA2 is a good mid-range Android phone. Despite its very similar look to 2017’s Sony Xperia XA1, the phone sports an upgraded 1080p screen, and a packed 3300 mAh battery. It’s more affordable than the value giants of the industry but more expensive than budget classics like the Moto G6. However, specs-wise, it falls between the two categories and ultimately is much closer to the lower tier. With superb battery life, 4k video recording and a new take on a classic sony design, there’s a lot of innovative designing going on with Sony’s Xperia XA2.

    The phone boasts sharper high-resolution screen, much better battery life, latest Android OS and 4k video recording.

    About the Mobile Phone

    The Sony Xperia XA2, silver, 32GB (3GB RAM) runs for Rs. 21,990. It comes with a 5.2 inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen display with 1080 x 1920 pixels at 424 PPI (pixels per inch). This flagship is powered by Qualcomm SDM630 Snapdragon 630 Octa-core processor and comes with 3GB RAM. It also has 32 gigs of internal storage that can be expanded up to 256GB with a microSD card. The phone runs the latest Android 8.1 and a 3300mAh non-removable battery. It measures 142 x 70 x 9.7 mm and weighs 171 gm. Further, it also houses a 23 MP primary camera on the rear and an 8 MP front shooter for selfies.

    The phone comes with a great colour accurate display and a stunning design. The phone also has a great battery life which only adds more value.
    The Sony Xperia XA2 comes with its shortcomings though, having neither a top of the class camera nor a high-grade CPU performance.

    The Sony Xperia XA2 is a good mid-range Android phone. Despite its very similar look to 2017’s Sony Xperia XA1, the phone sports an upgraded 1080p screen, and a packed 3300 mAh battery. It’s more affordable than the value giants of the industry but more expensive than budget classics like the Moto G6. However, specs-wise, it falls between the two categories and ultimately is much closer to the lower tier. With superb battery life, 4k video recording and a new take on a classic sony design, there’s a lot of innovative designing going on with Sony’s Xperia XA2.

    The phone boasts sharper high-resolution screen, much better battery life, latest Android OS and 4k video recording.

    Although a metal frame gives the phone a bit of a premium feel, the curved backside is plastic, and the matte material doesn’t feel cheap despite it taking some genuine effort to clean. At the bottom are the USB Type-C port and a single firing speaker, which is loud and doesn’t suffer from sound distortion. There is a 3.5 mm jack as well, owing to Sony sticking to the basics and not switching to Apple’s trends just yet.

    The Xperia XA2 has a 5.2 inch IPS LCD display with a full HD resolution, a higher resolution than the last model. The display brings good brightness capacity that maxes out at over 530 nits while also achieving good sunlight legibility. The 16:9 aspect ratio, when paired with a relatively fat 9.7mm thickness of the phone, makes the Sony Xperia XA2 seem like a chunky little mobile. Despite the added bulk, there’s no official IP67 rating for water resistance.

    Inside the Xperia XA2 is Qualcomm’s latest mid-range processor: the 1.95GHz octa-core Snapdragon 635. The Xperia XA2 also comes with 3GB RAM and 32GB of storage, expandable up to 256GB via microSD. The Sony Xperia XA2 runs the latest Android OS with Sony’s custom interface sitting on top of it.

    The Xperia XA2 brings the same primary camera setup that we saw in the previous version, a 23 megapixel f2.0 single shooter with phase detection autofocus. It also brings more features previously seen in Sony flagships when shooting with the default superior auto mode.
    The XA2 does an excellent job of adjusting itself to different scenes. The daylight shots look good, show a lot of fine detail and achieve a decent dynamic range.
    The Xperia XA2 sports an 8 MPs selfie camera with autofocus. You can shoot video up to 4K resolution with the Xperia XA2, but there’s also a separate 4K capture mode.

    The battery stamina is one of the Sony Xperia XA2’s Flagship elements. It has a 3300 mAH battery that can earn an endurance rating of 92 hours on battery life. Further, the battery can charge up quickly from 0 to 30% in half an hour owing to Quick Charge 3.0.

    The Sony Xperia XA2 has not yet switched to the trends of the changing moment. It doesn’t have an 18:9 display, opting instead for a more conventional 16:9. It also shares camera tech with its predecessor, not introducing any innovation in the area. Low-light photography issues aside, the Xperia XA2 is an impressive smartphone, made even better by its highly reasonable asking price. It has a good display, long battery life, and the appearance of a very expensive and elegant handset.

    It is a rock-solid phone, and despite being thicker than most devices out there, it’s easy to handle and scores reasonably high on the likability factor. We are confident enough in saying that this is one of the best smartphones that Sony has come out with in a long time and this particular one is in for the long haul. For the price, it has great looks, a long-lasting battery, and manages to take great pictures as well!
