Despite a lower review sample, taking into account its compound ranking of 84%, we conclude that the Sony Xperia XA2 Plus is, as of now, Phonerated's best Sony phone 2022/2023. Phonerated also concludes that our sample of 1046 reviews across multiple sources gives us a safe-enough confidence level that justifies calling it the most interesting choice as of now.

The 2018 Sony Xperia XA2 Plus is a high-end phablet banking heavily on specs like a 6GB RAM, a 23-megapixel rear camera, and a 6-inch 18:9 display furbished with a Gorilla Glass 5 panel.

The XA1 Ultra places a lot of emphasis on its 16-megapixel and 23-megapixel front and back cameras, respectively, with which it aims to dominate the mid-range phone market (with the help of other specs like its 6-inch edge-to-edge 1080p display and up-to-2.3GHz Helio P20 CPU).

Improving on 2016's XA smartphone, the XA1 remains to be a mid-ranger with camera and performance-focused specs, such as a 23-megapixel rear cam, an 8-megapixel front cam, and an octa-core 2.3GHz processor -- although its 720p display and 2300mAh battery evidently didn't receive as much love from Sony.
