My Opinion

Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra is a good option for those keen on photography. With a 16 MP camera, it will satisfy those selfie lovers as well. Apart from this, I do not find any key advantage with this phone. Sony’s reliability and quality software and hardware are other things you can expect to enjoy with this brand.

Other Recommended Phones

Honor 8 Pro and OnePlus 5 fall under the same price range. Hence, these models are good competitors for Xperia XA1. Consider these options before finalizing your decision. If selfie is your primary concern, then consider Vivo V5 Plus and Oppo F3 Plus two other smartphones tagged with ‘selfie phones.’
