Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra Philippines Price is PHP 22,990, Vlogging and Mobile Photography Features

Are you planning to start vlogging soon but you're not keen on buying a DLSR or Mirrorless camera and lugging around a separate gadget apart from your smartphone just to get good video quality when shooting clips with your face in the frame?

Here's a new Android smartphone from Sony that you might want to check out.

For me, the most interesting feature of the Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra is its Dual Front Facing Camera module that incorporates a 16 MegaPixel primary shooter with f/2.0 aperture and 23mm standard field of view plus an 8 MegaPixel f/2.4 aperture secondary cam with 120-degrees wide-angle view for group shots. This set-up also includes a Soft LED flash that allows the owner to snap selfies and wefies even in low-light conditions.

But the best thing about this module is that the main shooter has both Electronic (EIS) as well as Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) and can shoot FullHD 30fps videos, which means that it is ideal for vlogging. Talk about recording smooth and steady clips even if you're walking and just holding your handset in front of your face without a gimbal.

Also great for mobile photographers and videographers, just like any high-end Xperia handset by this legendary Japanese tech company, Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra has a 23 MegaPixel Rear Camera with f/2.0 aperture and large 1/2.3" sensor (like that of past flagship Xperia models) for good low light performance. This cam also shoot 4K 30fps videos or 120fps Slow-Mo HD clips that you can use for cinematic effects.

Another highlight of this model is its 6-inch Full HD IPS display, which - although having a not-so-trendy 16:9 aspect ratio - is nonetheless crisp and brilliant enough to provide an enjoyable video-viewing and 3D-gaming experience.

Speaking of gaming, the Xperia XA2 Ultra should be able to smoothly run the most resource-intensive titles that you can download from the Google Play Store -- thanks to its powerful Octa Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor that's complemented by 4GB of RAM and 64GB of ROM that you can easily beef up using the dedicated microSD card slot; No need to sacrifice the handset's Dual SIM capability to get more space for your large game files.

As for uptime, this smartphone's non-removable 3,580 mAh Li-Ion battery pack and energy-efficient chipset allows it deliver around a whole day of regular use coming from a full charge. However, if you're a power user and you'll be using the device mainly for recording videos, you might want to bring a large capacity powerbank with you as well -- just to be sure.
