Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra – Review


The Sony Xperia XA 1 Ultra sports a 6-inch Full HD IPS display – the 1080 x 1920 resolution and pixel density of 367ppi. It boasts edge to edge of a 2.5D curved glass for best viewing experience.

The display is same as its predecessor, but it is definitely brighter than the Xperia XA, and hence the sunlight legibility has improved. The color accuracy is better too. For a budget device, the display is quite good, really. The text and images are razor sharp and the colors are quite vivid.
