[Review] Sony Xperia T2 Ultra: LTE phablet on a budget
27 June 2014
Conclusion: Sure, the competition is rife out there. The T2 Ultra has the , the Alcatel OneTouch Hero, and to contend with. But taking everything into context, including its premium feel and build, excellent camera and battery life, I think it holds its own.
Pros: Thin, light, well-built, Feels premium, Good camera, Excellent connectivity, Excellent battery life, Affordable, good value
Cons: Camera could be faster, Small built-in storage, Glossy finish is fingerprint magnet
Summary: Last October our resident phablet user, Matt Booth, reviewed the Sony Xperia Z Ultra very positively. Fast forward six months and Sony have released it’s follow up, the Sony Xperia T2 Ultra (T2). To call the T2 the younger brother of the Z Ultra is an apt description. It’s slightly smaller, slightly lower specced, and best of all slightly lower in price (at release).
Pros: It’s big, IPS display is extraordinary, Minimal skin, Inexpensive, Solid build, Camera button
Cons: It’s big, Camera sub-par, 8GB built in memory, Poor speaker
Summary: The Xperia T2 Ultra is a great phablet in the mid-range and offers smart looks, an excellent camera and a decent hardware pacakge. The design is well done although we didn't like the fact that it has a glossy finish as it leads to a lot of fingerprints and smudges. With a 3000mAh battery the phablet even offers long battery life. If you love large screen devices, then the T2 Ultra will not disappoint.
Pros: Bright and responsive display, Great camera quality, Excellent battery backup
Cons: Glossy finish means less grip and fingerprints all around, Too big to operate with one hand, Loudspeaker could have been better
Sony Xperia T2 Ultra review: The bigger, the better
9 May 2014
Conclusion: The T2 Ultra reports to the Z Ultra in Sony's Xperia lineup - and is getting ready to take on a number of midrange phablets the competition has had for a while now. It will certainly try to position itself as a more affordable option of the Xperia Z Ultra but, at least at this point, the difference in pricing between the two doesn't quite reflect the difference in the level of equipment.
Cons: Not as slim as the Z Ultra, Non user-replaceable battery, No water or dust proofing, No proper video and audio playback decoders (DivX, AC3) out of the box, Relatively quiet audio output in the headphones
Summary: Related: Top Sony Xperia T2 Ultra cases and covers . There aren’t any surprises in terms of the packaging. Inside the box, you get the usual reading materials and quick start guides. The package includes a micro USB cable, wall charger, and a pair of white earbuds, which are perhaps the only absolute necessities that come with a mid-range device. Overall, the packaging and item inclusion are quite decent for a mid-ranger like the T2 Ultra.
Pros: Great Camera., Long Battery Life., Sturdy build quality., Bright/Vivid Display.
Sony Xperia T2 Ultra Dual review: Righting the wrongs of the Z Ultra
2 May 2014
Summary: You can find the Sony Xperia T2 Ultra for as low as Rs 22,500, which is quite a bit lesser compared to its launch price of Rs 25,990. There’s no glaring issue that we’ve faced with the T2 that can be called a deal-breaker. Perhaps a faster chipset would have been a welcomed addition. It’s a good all-rounder with a beautiful display and excellent battery life.
Summary: The definition of a big screen has been literally stretched far and wide in the smartphone industry. The term phablet has also come to mean more than 4.5-5.5 inch displays. It now includes 6-inch phones which are maybe as close to having a tablet as you can get. Sony broke the perception last year with its 6.4-inch Xperia Z Ultra. It is back with a bang, this time with a 6-inch Sony Xperia T2 Ultra. It comes with a 720p display and an affordable price tag.
Summary: Huge screen phones carry high price, making it low on the list of purchase. When we talk about India, then phablets are not much popular. There are few phones that lie in the same segment but carry different price. And each of those also differs in terms of hardware and screen quality. Some of them are HTC One Max that comes at Rs. 53,909 and offers 5.9-inch. This one is the costliest one. The second is LG G Pro 2 that comes for Rs.45300 and offers 5.9 Inches screen.
Pros: Great Display, Excellent Battery Life, Good Camera Features, Great Design, Budget Phablet
Cons: Poor Front Camera, Not so great loud speakers
Summary: Some of Sony’s best technologies find their way into the T2 Ultra, including its displays, camera and software. There’s value here for multimedia enthusiasts, but everyone else with a spare $500 should consider Sony’s Xperia Z1 Compact, Google’s Nexus 5 or the Motorola Moto X.
Обзор Sony Xperia T2 Ultra Dual - «большие амбиции»!
2 February 2015
Summary: Практическое использование аппарата позволило «рассеять» едва ли не все первые негативные впечатления о модели. Возможностей TFT-дисплея оказалось достаточно даже для того, чтобы посмотреть видео в условиях попадания на панель солнечного света, а реализованной «железной связки» для работы любого приложения. Кроме того, на фоне конкурентов модель выделяется поддержкой dual-SIM. Последним, уж поверьте, на сегодня может «похвастаться» далеко не каждый 6-дюймовый фаблет.
Pros: Подгонка элементов/тонкий корпус;, Качественный дисплей/интересные настройки и технологии;, Динамики/автоматические режимы;, Аккумулятор и хорошие показатели автономности;, Неплохая производительность, несмотря на не самое интересное «железо»;, Поддержка dual-SIM
