Sony's Xperia XA line is a relatively new Sony smartphone line, which was first to shake things up a bit design-wise. It has these razor-thin side bezels, making it extremely easy to wrap your hand around the phone. Still, it has huge top and bottom bezels, but it makes up for that with a high-res, optically-stabilized selfie camera and stereo, front-firing speakers.

The Xperia XA1 Ultra is a midrange phablet through and through. It rocks a 6-inch display with a 1080 x 1920 pixel resolution, a MediaTek Helio P20 octa-core SoC, and 4 GB of RAM. Its main camera has a 23 MP sensor and there's a 16 MP snapper on the selfie side.

Best Buy currently has refurbished models up for sale at $229.99 — that's a pretty sweet price, the lowest we've seen refurbished Xperia XA1 Ultras go for is $249.99.

If you don't care about camera performance, get this one. I had it and it was a great phone except for the camera (which seemingly takes beautiful photos but even when comparing to the Honor 6x or Honor 7x, it sucks like 99% of the time. Shutter is slow, focusing is way too slow many times and the focus is still off at the end. I had it side by side with the Honor 6x taking photos indoor at night and the Honor 6x gave me much clearer photos down to some tiny text. This phone didn't. Some photos turned out really nice but it won't happen a lot. (Now on the other hand, the two Honor phones I mentioned had serious camera lag. Nothing's perfect, I guess). And again, other than that, this device was great for me. No lag, good battery life (all day with about 5 and a half hours of screen on time).
