The Internet can be a scary place with its billions of users, but modern smartphones have a way to let you leave your mark – the selfie camera. That’s exactly what the Sony Xperia XA Ultra is all about.
It’s one of only two phones to feature optical image stabilization on the front-facing camera. And what a camera it is – a dedicated LED flash and a large 1/2.6″ sensor of 16MP resolution. That’s the same sensor size and resolution as the main camera on the Galaxy S6!
The rest of the Xperia XA Ultra is quite similar to the smaller XA, which (it is no secret) is our favorite looking phone of the new Xperia X line. Aside from the screen, of course, Ultra is Sony speak for a 6″ screen.
It has a higher resolution, 1080p, which makes it sharper to boot. And slender it is too – the narrowest 6″ phone in our database, despite its metal sides.
