More than just its 6" edge-to-edge display, the Xperia XA1 Ultra is a well rounded phone for those in the upper mid-range market.
Solid array of specifications; Good all-round camera; Great edge-to-edge display
Finicky single-hand mode; Bland design
The XA1 Ultra (32 GB) will cost you around R8k depending on the retailer (spotted on Takealot for R7 999) here in South Africa. That's a tad expensive when it comes to the upper mid-range market, but for that price you'll get a screen that's on-trend, a solid camera and an array of specifications to ensure a bit of technological longevity for your purchase. Or more precisely, long enough to see you through your 24-month contract.
