Design

The XA2 represent a sort of refinement and iteration of the XA2 design: launched on July, few monts after the other 2 models, and it has a more contemporary style, with a 18:9 ratio display. The display has also rounded edge, emulating the main trend in the market today.
The industrial design: the body of the phone is slightly curved, convex, and this helps the grip.

Watching the XA2 there is some similarity with the loved Nokia N9: the curved glass (only horizontally, however), the relatively thickness, a swipe based OS.

XA2 Plus video unboxing

Our video unboxing which in reality is a re-unboxing because the first unboxing is as Android 8.0, and we had to flash it and re package it to simulate an unboxing. 🙂

The hardware

The XA2 Xperia is powered by an octa-core 2.2GHz Cortex-A53 CPU processor (the Snapdragon 630) and this makes it much more capable than its predecessor Xperia X, which was basically a 4 + 2 cores, ed. The GPU is an Adreno 508 GPU, enough to handle the workload.

For memory, there are 3 GB of RAM and 32GB of file starting with the usual microSD slot for expansion. (To verify if the Sailfish-32GB limit is still there).

The battery is a large, non-removable, from 3,300 mAh. It is compatible with QuickCharge 3.0 format for fast charging.

That said, Sony usually does not provide the rapid charger, and then the charge will be slower.

The cameras is – as usual for Sony devices – very good, with a main-camera of 23MP f / 2.0 apertures, with 2160p / 30fps video recording.
The front camera is 8MP, appreciated for its 120 degrees of shooting angle, but with fixed focus. It allows a good 1080p / 30fps video recording.
