How big is too big, really? After seeing phablets as large as 6.8 inches in screen size, anything around 5.5 inches is beginning to feel normal. We’re now taking a look at the Xperia XA Ultra, which is Sony’s largest midranger this year, sitting in what we feel is a comfortable 6 inches.
Supersized smartphones have been landing in our office non-stop in the past month, and the Xperia XA Ultra is the latest one to receive our unboxing treatment. If you recall, Sony is touting this phablet as its selfie powerhouse. With a 16-megapixel sensor, LED flash, and optical image stabilization in front (yes, on the front camera!), we agree wholeheartedly.
Squeeze in an equally capable 21.5-megapixel camera with hybrid autofocus at the back and a near borderless display, and we have one of the more alluring options for selfie lovers.
We don’t want to spoil the rest of the Xperia XA Ultra’s distinctive features, so we’ll leave it up to you to watch the embedded video and see if it matches your own unique needs.
