Sony Xperia XA Ultra released in the US as one of the largest Android Marshmallow phones on the market

About a week after releasing the Xperia XA and Xperia X Performance in the US, Sony today started selling the Xperia XA Ultra stateside - a few days later than initially expected. Just like the other Xperia X handsets, the XA Ultra can be bought only unlocked, and is available via Amazon, Best Buy, B&H, and Reagan Wireless.

Priced at $369.99, the Xperia XA Ultra comes with a free 64 GB microSD card - a more than welcome gift, since the phone only has 16 GB of internal memory.

Running Android 6.0 Marshmallow, the Xperia XA Ultra is a very large handset that sports a 6-inch, 1080 x 1920 pixels display, and is powered by an octa-core MediaTek Helio P10 processor. One of the phone's notable features is its 16 MP front-facing camera with OIS (optical image stabilization). Also on board are a 21 MP rear camera, 3 GB of RAM, and a 2700 mAh battery. You can find out much more about the smartphone by checking out our Sony Xperia XA Ultra review.

Since it's an unlocked GSM/LTE device, the Sony Xperia XA Ultra is compatible with carriers like AT&T and T-Mobile, but it can't be used on CDMA carriers like Verizon, Sprint, and US Cellular.

I wanted to buy this gorgeous phone but small battery capacity kills it for me. They should have put at least 3500mAh.

helio p10 may be a average processor in terms of raw power,but it is very power efficient chip.This phone is good at camera dept.So u can enjoy pics,videos,movies and all multimedia content.But it is definitely not for gamers.
