I am one of those people that always wants the latest and greatest technology – cell phones being a major one of those things. With my job revolving around social media, I need a good phone. One with a great display, flawless camera, lots of memory, and of course, it needs to be fast. Because of this I was really excited to learn about two new unlocked Sony phones that Best Buy has available – the Xperia XA1 Ultra and the Xperia XZ Premium.
Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra
I have to admit, when I first saw the Xperria XA1 Ultra, I was pretty excited. This phone has a borderless 6” edge-to-edge Full HD display which provides an extraordinary mobile viewing experience. That is something that I really need in my line of work. Then, when I decided to check out the camera, I fell in love with it even more. The XA1 features not only one, but TWO, outstanding cameras. The new 23MP main camera previously found only on Sony’s flagship smartphones and a 16MP front-facing camera upgraded to include a 23mm wide-angle lens. These cameras are sure to make all my photos look crisp, clear, and spectacular!
This amazing new phone is only available at Best Buy. Because it is unlocked, it works with AT&T, Verizon and Cricket. So be sure to head to your local store, or online, and pick one up.
Sony Xperia XZ Premium
If the XA1 is not for you, I have a feeling the Xperia XZ Premium will be! This phone boasts a 4K HDR Display and Super Slow motion Camera. This 4K HDR Display is the first of its kind in a smartphone! The 19MP main camera comes with the world’s first Motion Eye camera system, featuring Predictive Capture to help you get just the right shot, and Super slow motion video recording, which captures life in ways no other smartphone can. How cool is that? I saw videos of butterflies and sports events taken with the slow motion camera and all I can say is WOW! It is very, very cool guys – definitely the latest tech advancement.
If you are looking for speed in a phone, that is another category that the XZ excels in. It has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor to ensure it performs exceptionally when creating Super slow motion videos. Not to mention when watching 4K HDR videos or playing the latest PlayStation games on PS4 Remote Play. I have a PS4 so having the remote play option is a major plus for me!
The Xperia XZ is available at Best Buy. This is an unlocked phone as well, and will work with AT&T, Verizon and Cricket.
