Compared to other popular mid-rangers in the 5- to 5.2-inch area, you can see that the Xperia XA1 is the lightest and narrowest device of the bunch. Although not as slender as the Samsung Galaxy A5, the smaller XA1 version is nearly a millimeter slimmer than the other 5-inch model found here – the Xiaomi Redmi 4 Prime.

The Xperia XA1 Ultra features an edge-to-edge display with no bezels on the sides, but the ones that are located above and underneath the screen are quite large. This effectively makes the XA1 Ultra the largest phone of our big phablet selection, but we have to give props to Sony for keeping the handset relatively slim.
