An impressively large yet slim form factor, we haven't seen Sony produce a high powered 'Ultra' phone for a couple of years.
The XA Ultra is set to change that offering an excellent high definition 6 inch screen with the rest of the specifications following suit to create a powerful and desirable smartphone.
Incredible cameras - front and back
If one specification marks the XA Ultra as flagship potential then it is the main 21.5 megapixel camera. Sony reserve this only for their best smartphones.
It's not just about resoltuion though, the 1/2.4" lens aperture and Exmor RS technology creates wonderful imagery even in challenging conditions. Combined with Hybrid Auto Focus technology and a quick launch camera application, you're assured of excellent photos time and time again.
Looking to one up the competition when it comes to the selfie game, you'll also find an incredibly powerful front-facing camera too. Adorning the front bezel of the XA Ultra is a 16 megapixel, 1/2.6" camera with a wide angle lens.
With all the same technology powering the front-camera as the back, you can choose HDR photos, experience excellent low-light performance and even take advantage of a smart selfie flash that doesn't wash out your final images.
Have some fun
Sony's cameras make for an entertaining past time but there's more to the media behemoth than just taking good pictures.
Gaming and film are also a huge part of Sony's repertoire and a smartphone like the XA Ultra is built to take advantage of both of them.
Whether you use an independent streaming service such as Netflix, NOW or Hulu, or want to take advantage of Sony's own premium services for their own flicks, the large high definition is perfect for catching up on TV or relaxing with a movie when travelling.
PS4 Remote Play is also supported. So if you have a strong Wi-Fi connection, you can log in remotely to a PlayStation 4 at home and stream your games directly to the phone. Combine this with a GCM10 mount and you can control the action with a DualShock 4 controller.
Android 6.0 Marshmallow
The latest software from Android comes preloaded on the Xperia X series and with it arrives a host of great features that improve the user interface and user experience.
One main software change is Android 6.0 Marshmallow's new ‘Now on Tap’ feature. All you need to do is just touch and hold the home button of your device and information – as well as apps – will appear depending on what you're reading, watching or listening to.
There have also been improvements in battery optimisation with a new feature called ‘Doze’ and a new app standby aspect. Doze automatically puts your device into a sleep state so it can save battery when the device isn’t in use. Combine this with smarter app standby control which means seldom used apps are not draining your power, so there are some worthwhile battery improvements with Android 6.0.
These are just a few of the features, to explore all the enhancements that Google have brought with Marshmallow check out this link - https://goo.gl/SmgMlN
Aside from the cameras we've already looked at above, the main specifications of the XA Ultra show it to be a powerful and capable modern smartphone.
The 6.0" screen has a full 1280 x 1920 resolution with top quality colour reproduction and viewing angles, due to screen technology that Sony employ from their well-received Bravia TV range.
Powering everything is a MediaTek MT6755 processor, also known as the Helio P10. This is a true octa-core 64 bit and runs alongside 3GB of RAM. You can expect responsive multitasking and sharp graphics whether you're streaming and downloading or playing 3D games.
As with any modern smartphone, you can also expect a full range of connectivity options including dual-band Wi-Fi, Miracast streaming and content sharing, GPS, Bluetooth 4.1 and NFC for one-touch pairing and payments.
