About the Product
The 6 inch borderless display is big for entertainment but easy to hold for productivity. The Sony sports a 21.5MP main camera and a 16 MP front-facing one which take stunning photos. With a large 2700mAh battery and 16bit Octa-core processor you have efficient power and performance for all of your entertainment needs.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 unlocks a Galaxy of technology that takes your smartphone experience to a new level. The bigger, more stunning screen completes the slimmer design. Why not have a phone that’s water resistant, too? Galaxy S7 withstands splashes, spills and even dunks. Capture the moment like a professional with dual-pixel technology, offering faster autofocus and low-light sensor. Combine that with a longer-lasting battery and expandable memory, and you have a device that’s more than a smartphone.

What customers say about "Processor"
Sony Xperia XA Ultra unlocked smartphone,16GB Black
  • Games. You can play any game on here perfectly. The processor is great for it and the screen makes it better.
  • Fast Octacore processor. Runs latest Android OS (Nougat).
  • There isn't any lag on the keyboard and the processor seems up to snuff. The pre downloaded keyboard works good.
  • Sony decided to use a less expensive processor, resulting in a much lower priced phone
Samsung Galaxy S7 (SM-G930A) Unlocked Smartphone, Black Onyx
  • With the snapdragon processor and 4 gig of RAM, this phone is quick to run your programs without lag. More than enough storage even without an SD card.
  • Obviously it has faster processor, latest android version and other software enhancements.
  • This phone is great for multitasking with its split screen support, and the processor is able to keep up with several open remote connections at once.
  • Updating from Galaxy S5, noticing that the processor gets very hot when in operation, just like the S5.

What customers say about "Camera"
Sony Xperia XA Ultra unlocked smartphone,16GB Black
  • The camera on this phone produces nice pics and video.
  • The fun camera apps are hilarious (like snapchat).
  • The camera is decent in low light and great in bright dayligh
  • The screen is amazing and its body doesn't feel so heavy, both cameras take excellent photos, but selfies cam is the best.
  • I'm a little disappointed with the camera. All the reviews raved about how good it's camera is. I've taken pictures with it and they look a little fuzzy even in good light.
Samsung Galaxy S7 (SM-G930A) Unlocked Smartphone, Black Onyx
  • Phone is nice and light, camera takes awesome pictures and when watching a video or movie, the picture is so clear and detailed
  • While the Camera on the Galaxy S5 was goo, the camera on the S7 jumps leaps and bounds further, Would recommend this product toa friend (and a foe!)
  • Nice screen, easy to use, great color, camera unbelievably works great in dark, much better than iPhone.
  • Great camera with good night capability.
  • The camera was really good but it sure didn't last very long on batteries got awful hot

What customers say about "Features"
Sony Xperia XA Ultra unlocked smartphone,16GB Black
  • Android pay is available. I like it but not many places support android pay.
  • Quickly linked to my PS4 and Sony XBR850 TV. The included media function turns into a remote control for the TV, great for turning off the TV when the kiddos aren't listening so well.
  • The onscreen keyboard is great in landscape mode, I frequently am using it one handed.
  • speaker sound is really nice and loud another 5 stars for it.
  • Call quality is good, signal is good as well
  • You can add a micro SD card which works great but you cannot download to it directly. Android makes it so you have to download it to the phone first.
Samsung Galaxy S7 (SM-G930A) Unlocked Smartphone, Black Onyx
  • Love that is waterproof and has a sd slot
  • Bought this phone because of water resistance features...and has already survived two dunks in water. Extremely satisfied.
  • It's not too big, very good looking, lots of storage, easy to operate, love the fingerprint ID function.
  • Works great, speaker is loud, screen is bright, touch screen sensitive, and very good looking.
  • One thing that Samsung can improve upon though is the slot for the SD (memory) and SIM card. Putting in a micro card for memory and SIM is tricky and requires a steady hand

What customers say about "Power"
Sony Xperia XA Ultra unlocked smartphone,16GB Black
  • Battery life. The battery last all day for me with heavy use. I use it to play games and watch videos. I get up at 4:30 am and by the time I'm home at 4:00 pm the battery is still at 70 percent.
  • The battery is good for the size of the phone and the quality is really good
  • The ridiculously small battery drains in record time. There are a few YouTube videos than can explain how to disable all the nonessential stuff that can help save the battery life
  • It doesn't have an easy to replace battery for a hotswap like my Lumias did.
  • The battery is only 2700mah so you'll have to carry a portable charger with you all times!
Samsung Galaxy S7 (SM-G930A) Unlocked Smartphone, Black Onyx
  • I am very happy with the battery life compared to S6.
  • Recently switched over to the Samsung Galaxy S7 and it's battery holds up better than any other phone i've had (LG V10, HTC One...)
  • Battery charges very quickly
  • Battery runs out a bit quickly unless put on power saving mode all the time.
  • This phone is Low on battery life. Rest of the things are ok
