King of the Selfie: The Sony Xperia XA Ultra

Sunday, September 4th, 2016

The Sony Xperia XA Ultra has many appealing features, with the two standouts being the large display and the amazing camera combo.

A 21.5-megapixel camera adorns the back of the handset and is paired with a 16-megapixel front facing selfie camera complete with LED flash for low light selfies.  We were pleased to see that the camera interface was identical to the more expensive Sony Xperia X and the cameras offered a great level of detail and correct white balance, with little to no visible noise or aberrations. There’s also OIS to compensate for any shaking to produce a sharp picture to share with friends and family.
