Sony Xperia XA2 Plus Review

Score: 78.6 / 100

Sony Xperia XA2 Plus is a top-level Android phone launched back in the year 2018, provisioned with an extremely powerful 2200 MHz Octa-Core processing unit, a huge 6 inches screen, and two cameras, a 23 megapixels back camera and an 8 MP front side camera. We will get a better understanding of this phone's wonders when we get into more details.

Sony decided to power the Sony Xperia XA2 Plus using a high performance 2.2 gigahertz Octa-Core CPU, included in a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 SDM630 chip with a huge 6 GB RAM. This phone comes with a big 64 GB internal storage and a slot for external memory cards, which allows the user to install tons of apps, games, photos and videos without even thinking about filling the phone.

This cellphone is available only in 16 777 216 color. It seems like Sony didn't care about the weight in this 7.23 ounces cellphone. The Sony Xperia XA2 Plus is only 6.18" long and 2.95 inches wide, but it still manages to hold a 6" display. Being just 0.38" thick,this phone is extremely slim and good-looking. Talking about its construction quality, this phone is manufactured with Aluminum .

This cellphone has a great 6 inches screen with a 1080 x 2160 resolution, which makes everything look beautiful and brightful.

This phone counts with wi-fi capability (and it can provide it to other devices acting as a mobile hotspot), LTE-A (4G) high bandwidth data connection and also HSPA+ connection type (a slower 4G variation) and fast 3G connectivity, over HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This device comes with two Nano SIM cards so it is able to use 2 different phone lines and even different carriers at the same time.

This phone is equipped with two cameras, a 23 megapixels back side camera and an 8 mega-pixels front facing camera. this phone's back side camera lens has a f/2 aperture so it can take detailed pictures even in low light situations. This device can also capture 4K 3840x2160 videos at 30 frames per second.

The Sony Xperia XA2 Plus also includes a great numbre of great characteristics such as Fingerprint Identification, NFC, Bluetooth (5.0 ), GPS Localization and Radio, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer and Compass.

This phone uses a big capacity 3580 mAh Li - Polymer non-replaceable battery, enough to provide this cellphone with a marvelous battery duration. An issue to take into consideration is that this cellphone's battery is non-replaceable so you can't buy a new battery when it starts to get older, while with such a great capacity you will probably buy a new phone before it becomes an issue.

If you will use it as a gaming cellphone, need this cellphone for work, you love taking photographs or need a phone to majorly use social networks and internet browsing, you will probably love this cellphone.
