Meet the Sony Xperia XA1 Plus, a midrange Android phone with a big screen and a big battery.

There's no price for it yet, but as a midrange phone that sits below Sony's existing flagship XZ Premium and new XZ1 phones, I'm hoping it will come with an affordable price tag.

It's due to go on sale globally in September.

The 5.5-inch display has a full HD (1,920x1080-pixels) resolution which looked crisp and bright in my hands on time.

The 3,430mAh battery is much bigger than the one Sony has plopped inside its new XZ1 phone. I'm expecting to easily get a day of use out of this thing.

It's comfortable to hold and I really like the light blue colour.

REVIEW

The most beautiful phone ever has one wildly annoying issue

he Samsung Galaxy S8's fast speeds and fantastic curved screen make it a top phone for 2017, but the annoying fingerprint reader could sour your experience.
