All of these could use a $50 cut but the worst is the L2. Lol only the ignorant would buy that with the honor 7x around.

Or, they care about software/security updates.

The specs of the XA2 ultra are not that bad. A SD 2.2 GHz 630 octa core 64 bit SoC with 4 GB of RAM, with a full HD 1920x1080 6" display. Plus a 23 mp camera. USB-C. WiFi ac, Bluetooth 5.0, and a 3580 mha battery.

Better than SamSung, who failed their security iris protection on their S8 phones. The fail the battery check on their S7 Notes, in 2016. IRIS Security failed: "Samsung Galaxy S8 iris scanner fooled by German hackers"

At least they can be fixed unlike your loser Sony which is a big flop in everything.

First, nobody is a loser, when is comes to phones. Huawei beat out SamSung popularity long ago. SamSung never fixed the IRIS security yet bro! It is still hanging. LOL! The statistics shows it. Plus, SamSung went bankrupt over selling their camera, in Canada and UK market. Sony sold out the most cameras and TVs. Plus other Andriod phones are growing massively already. Why the shitty SamSung, if consumer has a choice now. Huawei, Pixels, etc.

‘Digital camera’ item was also eliminated from Samsung Electronics’ business report on sales of IM (IT and Mobile) field. Samsung Electronics’ digital cameras faded away into history. Due to changes in environment of camera markets, Samsung Electronics’ digital cameras that had existed for about 20 years since 1997 cannot be seen in markets anymore.

No phone is superior! If SamSung is so great, they never should have issues with their batteres, in 2016 (Article: "Samsung has lost $26 billion in value since it recalled the Galaxy Note 7") and lawsuit of $17 Million. Including the IRIS security flaw/bleach. Why can't their camera gets sold?, Because they are "NOT Perfect".

XA2 is better in camera quality and speed performance. The XA2 Ultra, has a bigger screen. Anyhow, Sony did a great job!!

Great price on that XA2. Yeah, it could be cheaper, but it could also be pricier. I don't want Huawei and their UI, so that's a no. Plus, all the phones are too big.

I guess having a fingerprint scanner is worth $50 more over the XA1 series and the L1. It'll be interesting to see how they run with the Snapdragon in place. The previous P20 chip was quite good and the battery life was excellent.

Fingerprint scanner on the back makes Sony looking like any other (mostly Chinese) phone on the market. This is a big mistake company made especially considering how unusually thick these devices are. I'm very disappointed with decision Sony made.

I don't know why and what's going on with Sony but at least this time around we will get working fingerprint scanner in the US. What's the point of having a unique fingerprint scanner when it doesn't even work as a fingerprint scanner? xD

Knowing sony, price will decrease soon.. anyway, hey guys i had info for you PA.. there is some evidence of Future Xperia phones with OLED displays.. Check it out and it comes from Sony Mobile Display Engineer Job Listing (http://www.xperiablog.net/2018/01/12/sony-mobile-​job-listing-hints-at-an-oled-xperia-future/?utm_so​urce=dlvr.it&utm_medium=facebook)

ok.. so the phones have a slight curve to them.. both front and back.. thus the extra thickness is due to that curve.. it's not even.. GSMARENA states that the phones are unusually easy to hold despite their thickness and that numbers do not do justice to them.. I think the prices are great, considering Sony,'s brand.. They are not competing with china but with Samsung and other big OEMs.. So all the phones are less than A8+..So that sweetens the deal.. One month and the prices will drop..

XA2 is better deal, but Sony XA2 Ultra has a bigger screen. Sony has the best camera and speed performance. Love the quality and it has improved so much from the past. Congrats!!
