Design and Display

Despite its slender look, the Sony Xperia XA2 has a rectangular look mostly because of not too curved edges. The smartphone is made of metal which according to Sony is a diamond cut material. It also features the latest trends like minimal bezel at the side but has a rather obnoxious top and bottom bezel. In comparison to other XA2 series, the smartphone is a tad thicker and weighs more probably due to the additional features put in.

Nothing changes regarding the display relative to the other Xperia XA2 models with just about the same size and resolution. In case you are a big screen fan, the smartphone will sooth you well with a convenient 6.0-inch of LCD sporting a 2160 x 1080 pixels resolution. The display has an added protection with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 covering the entire screen.
