Lots of companies seem to think their phones are the best for content consumption, and that’s a fine way to market a device. A phone that can offer the best viewing, gaming, and scrolling experiences makes for an enticing purchase. Today, Sony is taking literal approach as it introduced its Xperia XA2 Plus, a phone “designed to entertain.”

What does Sony consider specs worthy of entertainment, and how do we feel about them? Primarily, the phone features a 6-inch Full HD+ display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. The device has rounded screen corners and still includes bezels, which is disappointing. At this point, I think most people expect their entertainment-oriented phone to be virtually bezel-less, but for a midrange device, this is acceptable. It looks like it also includes a headphone jack, which is by far the most user-friendly feature Sony could offer to people who watch things on the go.

Plus-Size Superhero Faith Is Getting Her Own Film

  Plus-Size Superhero Faith Is Getting Her Own Film Sony are developing a film about plus-size superhero Faith Herbert, it has been revealed. The Valiant Comics character will be brought to the big screen for the first time, as part of a deal Sony signed with the publisher back in 2015. Deadline reports that Maria Melnik (‘American Gods’) will pen the movie and the hunt is on for a lead star. The Hollywood publication has also revealed that two producers have been assigned to the project. Faith - whose alter-ego is Zephyr - has tele-kinetic powers and made her comic book debut in 1992, as part of the Harbinger team. Sony is currently gearing up for the release of another superhero film as Tom Hardy will make his ‘Venom’ debut this October. Elsewhere the Marvel Cinematic Universe is going from strength to strength, with ‘Black Panther’ and ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ both breaking numerous records when released this year.

Sony ’s dire efforts to regain its non-existent market share has led to yet another mid-range smartphone. The company has today announced the Xperia XA 2 Plus which features a In addition, the phone comes with Sony ’s High-Resolution Audio technology and DSEE HX audio upscaling.

We don’t have pricing or availability information just yet, although last year’s XA1 Plus cost around $380. Generally, this phone seems fine. It’s nothing extraordinary, but it also features everything someone would likely want in a midrange device that they use for streaming. But overall, it does seem like Sony is trying to make upgrades to this phone line with slight display tweaks (last year’s XA1 Plus included a 5.5-inch display versus 6-inch) and a better processor with the option for more RAM and storage. Last year’s phone was also built for entertainment, but this year’s iteration will likely do a better job of giving people a place to watch all their shows.
