Specs comparison: Xperia XA2 Ultra vs ZenFone 4 vs Moto Z2 Play
So, Sony's new midrangers are out – the Xperia XA2 and Xperia XA2 Ultra. With a mix between premium design and mid-tier hardware, they will try to please the selfie-lovers that like to have a nice phone on hand without necessarily breaking the bank.

Let's take a look at the XA2 Ultra, for example — a wide-angle, 8 MP selfie camera is next to a 16 MP, OIS-assisted selfie camera, and there's a LED flash up front as well. Obviously aimed at the selfie-loving youngsters, the handset still has a lot to offer under the hood as well — a massive battery, a good amount of RAM, generous storage... Let's see how it compares next to some other midrangers, hovering around the same tier or price point:
