Sony Xperia Z Ultra
4 October 2014
Summary: The Sony Xperia Z Ultra is a top-end phone with the price and specs to prove it. It’s also a massive attention-grabber. As well as being absolutely huge, it’s seriously slick-looking. However, don’t try and convince yourself this is just like the Sony Xperia Z but bigger.
Conclusion: The Sony Xperia Z Ultra leaves us with mixed feelings. Its components and performance are in line with the best phones we’ve tested so far; its screen is gorgeous and huge, making for great gaming and movie watching; it certainly looks and feels the part of a high-end smartphone or tablet; and it...
Pros: Huge 6.4-inch screen great for games and movies, Top-notch specs make for snappy performance, Touchscreen works with a standard pencil, Premium look and feel, Impressively thin
Cons: Disappointing camera with no flash, Glass over the screen is to reflective, Poorly placed speaker doesn’t get loud enough, Awkward to hold due to size, slippery-ness, and square edges
Summary: The basics The Sony Xperia Z Ultra is a new breed of phone. These are phones so large that they can double as tablets – but won’t slip into most pockets all that easily. This is Sony’s first giant phone, and it costs around the same amount as the Sony Xperia Z1, which has a better camera.
Pros: The back and front of the Sony Xperia Z Ultra are shiny plates of glass, and it’s ridiculously thin at just 6.5mm thick. Phones don’t look much slicker than this – it has all the class of a sharp, tailored suit. The Sony Xperia Z Ultra’s size is sure to win more attention than anything else, but ...
Cons: A phone as big as the Sony Xperia Z Ultra is not that easy to live with. Keep it in a pocket and a swift move in the wrong direction could end with a hole in your trousers or an uncomfortable jab in your leg. A 6.5mm-thick phone may not be sharp as such, but you still wouldn’t want to be stabbed ...
Summary: For an asking price of Rs 46,990, we expected a lot more than just a good display and waterproofing. The Z Ultra makes an excellent waterproof PMP, but sadly, it does not make the cut as a phone.
