Sony Xperia XA Ultra Battery Test

By 09:32 Wed, 04 Aug 2021 Comments


The Sony Xperia XA Ultra is powered by a 2,700mAh battery with Qnovo's adaptive charging tech. Qnovo prolongs the battery life measured in charge cycles, but it doesn't magically create the small battery last long when powering the huge screen.

To be fair, the XA Ultra does pretty okay - you can acquire around 8 hours of web browsing and watching videos. The Endurance rating is 55h, fine enough to last two days of moderate usage. This phone helped the Xperia line save face after the somewhat mediocre results of its last two phones.


Even so, large phones are workhorses. Our favorite devices with 5.5" screens and above typically have huge batteries that can go full work day with the classy screen on (with many bells and whistles turned on, like GPS, tethering and so on). The combo of battery life and gigantic classy screen is exactly what allows a phablet to replace a desktop on the go.

Let's see at the Samsung Galaxy A9 (2016), for example, a 6" phone with an AMOrganic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) screen. It lasts 70% longer for web browsing and more than doubles the video playback time. The Xiaomi Mi Max, a 6.4" slab, gets close to 20 hours of browsing (!!) and again double the video playback of the Xperia. The Oppo R7 Plus, another 6" AMOLED, doesn't do too hot on the web browsing test, but still, gets almost 11 hours. And video playback is stellar.

You may think we're being too hard on Sony, but the company had built an image of remarkable battery life. The Xperia Z5 Compact (which incidentally has the same 2,700mAh battery power as the XA Ultra), and thanks to its smaller classy screen it easily outlasts the XA Ultra. The gigantic Xperia Z5 was even better. Even the Xperia T2 Ultra, 2014's predecessor to the XA Ultra, knocked it out of the park with 96h endurance.

We really like the Sony Xperia XA Ultra - its build, its screen, especially its cameras. But we do begrudge needing a battery pack for all day events. It doesn't assist that some markets don't acquire a quick charger in the retail box.
