The well-known benchmarking firm DxoMark recently released the results of Sony's Xperia XA2 Ultra at the company's Image Labs tests. For the sake of reminder, the XA2 Ultra is featuring a single snapper of 23MP on the rear with f/2.0 aperture. The XA2 Ultra was announced in the first half of 2018.
According to DxoMark, the XA2 Ultra camera is decent to capture images. The device achieves overall scores of 75 which makes it slightly ahead of iPhone 6 and Nexus 6P. Both these devices were announced in 2014 and 2015 respectively. This showcases the XA2 Ultra camera capabilities are equal to the three years old smartphones. At the moment, the Huawei's premium flagship P20 Pro is leading the market with an impressive score of 109 at the DxoMark. This clearly indicates how far away the Sony's latest mid-range smartphone is from being the best.
As per DxoMark test, the device exposure level is pretty great in daylight condition, however, it struggles badly in low-light conditions. The XA2 Ultra results are not pretty great in high-contrast scenarios. Also, the cameras struggle with color accuracy as well. The video-capturing capabilities of XA2 Ultra are also not rated amongst the best instead the DxoMark rated it as inconsistent in performance.
The XA2 Ultra overall camera results are not near to premium smartphones available in the market. However, the camera performance puts it close to the mid-range devices like Meizu Pro 7 Plus and Motorola G5S. The overall hardware of XA2 Ultra makes it an impressive smartphone at $400.
