Sony Xperia XZs & Xperia XA1 Ultra Phones

Sony Xperia XZs: Old Phone with an Awesome Camera Update.

The Sony Xperia XZs has a smaller 5.2-inch screen and is essentially last year’s Sony Xperia XZ with a camera upgrade. But the camera upgrade is something to fall for. The insanely high frame rate video allows you to slow down time rate four times slower than what is possible with any other front camera phones. The 4k video camera finally benefits the user for experiential visual recording. The new 19MP camera sensor has allowed for numerous other camera improvements such as better low light videos and photos especially in a low shutter effect; the camera would capture photos even before you click the shutter.

Color Variants: Warm Silver, Ice Blue and Black.

Specifications: 5.20-inch touch screen display with a resolution of 1080 pixels by 1920 pixels. It has 4GB of RAM and comes with 64GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 256GB via a microSD card.The phone is powered by quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor.

Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra: Disappointing Features in a Beautiful Body

Starting off with the body, Sony has experimented with its usual design in this phone with metal edges and polished plastic surface at the back; it is a different kind of frame in the market. So the overall built quality of the phone is quite impressive. With 2700MH battery and 6-inch display, the phone looks quite disappointing. It is weird that a 6-inch display has been equipped with a 2700MH battery. No doubt the mid-range phone looks stunning but as far as features are concerned, there is little to be happy about it. Sony has a history of equipping its camera with above-average qualities. And so Sony Xperia XA1 too is superb with the ability to capture super slow motion at 920fps. Sony calls it a “borderless edge-to edge-edge screen. Though in a nutshell, it certainly lacks any wow factor.

Color Variants: Black, White, Pink, Gold (Region specific).

Specifications: The Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra has a 23-megapixel primary camera on the main and a 16-megapixel front snapper. Moreover, it runs the latest Android 7.0. The phone is powered by octa-core MediaTek Helio P20 processor, and it is equipped with a 4GB of RAM. It comes with 32GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 256GB via a microSD card.
