Sony Xperia Ultra Best Buy Review 2

The Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra has a long name and it has an equally long list of cool features that is value priced at $399.99. It has a huge 6” edge-to-edge full HD display, two incredible cameras, one 23MP main camera previously only found in their flagship smartphones. Its front-facing 16MP camera has a 23mm wide-angle lens for selfies with a near panoramic background.

Sony Xperia Ultra Best Buy Review 1

    Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra:

  • Android 7.0 Nougat
  • 4G LTE speed
  • 6″ touch screen
  • 2,700 mAh battery
  • 32GB of storage space
  • Bluetooth
  • 23MP rear- and 16MP front-facing cameras
  • Compatible with GSM carriers, such as AT&T and Cricket

An edge-to-edge full HD display is offered in a limited number of smartphones today, something that the iPhone does not even have yet. The screen in the XA1 Ultra is huge at 6” and provides an extraordinary mobile viewing experience. I have used a 6” screen on a smartphones before, but having no edge bezels is much more desired.

Sony knows that people require the best camera, for their dollar, in smartphones today. They happen to produce cameras for many smartphone manufacturers because they are so good. However, the best cameras are reserved for Sony’s own smartphone line like in the XA1 Ultra.

Previously, only Sony’s most premium smartphones had one of their 23MP modules. This newly upgraded camera comes with the ability to shoot HD video and its Exmor RS mobile sensor enables it to capture more light in dark scenes with truer color photos. Its 16MP forward-facing camera also brings in more light for selfies.

To capture all of the photos, selfies and video with this big camera, grab a SanDisk 128GB A1 micro SD card. It is quick enough for this phone to run apps at full speed, capture thousands of images and to record many hours of full HD video.

Find this Sony Xperia XA1 for purchase exclusively from Best Buy.

Sony Xperia Premium Best Buy Review 2

The Sony XZ Premium at $799.99 is exactly as the name implies, lots of premium features that you want. This Android device has the first of its kind in a smartphone 4K HDR display, a 19MP main camera with the world’s first Motion Eye camera system, super slow motion video recording and a high performing octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 CPU.

    Sony XZ Premium:

  • Android 7.1 Nougat
  • 4G LTE speed
  • 5.5” 4K HDR TRILUMINOS touch screen with X-Reality and Dynamic Contrast Enhancer
  • 3230 mAh battery
  • 64GB of storage space
  • 19MP rear and 13MP front-facing cameras
  • Dual SIM – Great for international travel
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 octa-core processor
  • Compatible with GSM carriers, such as AT&T and Cricket

Slow motion video from smartphones is cool, but what the Sony Xperia XZ Premium can do was only previously available to scientists. Capture life in unique ways like no other smartphone, with a blazing 960 frames per second, wow! For comparison, the latest iPhone pales in comparison with 240 fps at 720p HD.

Sony’s Xperia XZ Premium 19MP camera has the world’s first Motion Eye camera system featuring Predictive Capture to help get the right shot and video in 4K ultra HD. Its memory-stacked 960 FPS Exmor RS image sensor has Predictive Capture capability and Predictive Hybrid Autofocus. It records 4K video with a 25mm wide G Lens F2.0, BIONZ image-processing engine and SteadyShot 5-axis video stabilization. Video stabilization helps with capturing moments with less blur and movement.

The water-resistant IP65/68 rating is good for reading articles or email in the tub, swipe through a recipe near the kitchen sink or browse by the pool, worry free. Sony’s water resistant phone goes with you even when you are near water.

To capture all of the photos, selfies and ultra HD 4K video with its big camera, grab a SanDisk 128GB A1 micro SD. It is quick enough for this phone to run apps big apps, capture thousands of images, and record many hours of 4K video without lag.

This model smartphone comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor in order to handle recording 4K ultra HD video, playing 4K HDR video on the 4K HDR screen and recording those super slow-motion 960 fps videos. Late model Snapdragon CPUs, like the one in this smartphone, has a special charging algorithm. It can power it up faster than other models, with an appropriate wall charger or backup battery.

Sony produces the PS4 video game system. Play the newest PlayStation games with PS4 remote play technology included in this smartphone. Similar to their previous Sony Xperia Z3v smartphone I reviewed a few years ago.

Find this Sony Xperia XZ Premium smartphone for purchase at Best Buy.

For the wow factor and the price, I would buy the Sony Xperia XZ Premium smartphone. It has technology-forward unique features that surely will not be offered in similar premium phones for several years. Android 7.1, which is the latest Google mobile operating system, is a big advantage to utilize all of its premium features. Using a foreign SIM card while traveling is very easy with its unlocked Dual SIM capability. Having a 4K HDR screen and the ability to play PS4 games via remote play, will keep you entertained for hours, with a best-in-class screen.
