Sony Xperia Z Ultra Review
26 November 2013
Excerpt: Whether it is a small tablet or an enormous phone, the Xperia Z Ultra is a truly unique beast. Sony has taken some of the best aspects of its most recent mobile product line and hybridized them to the point of being immaterial; the Ultra is what it is, and defies convention.
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. It may look like that phone, but using a phone this big takes a lot of getting used to. If you’re willing to put that commitment int, there’s a lot to love - just please, try one out in a shop first.
Conclusion: In a somewhat strange move, alongside the colossal 6.4-inch display and powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset, Sony opted for a relatively small 3,000 mAh battery. The idea here I’m sure was to keep the device to its svelte 6.5mm thick body, but it doesn’t bode well for battery life. The good news is that the standby time is impressive, because the screen isn’t powered on.
Sony Xperia Z Ultra review: the phone that doesn’t know it’s actually a tablet
22 August 2013
Conclusion: Well, we’re torn. Our time with the Z Ultra was slightly sullied by what we believe to be a unit with a defective touchscreen. Yet as far as performance goes, there’s quite literally nothing to complain about. Sure, the battery life could be better, but it’s offset by the fact that the Z Ultra charges quickly. The display is far from the best, but it’s by no means bad. And the phone is dust-proof and water resistant, something every smartphone should be … but is not.
Pros: Some of the best performance numbers to date, The camera is passable, Water resistant and dust-proof, Great for gaming and video consumption, Charges very quickly
Cons: Announced in late June, the Xperia Z Ultra launched in Asia last month, and is expected to launch September 12 in the UK. It has also passed through the FCC with compatibility for T-Mobile, but no official word on an actual US launch has surfaced.
Sony’s massive Xperia Z Ultra 6.4 inch phablet reviewed
11 February 2014
Summary: Sony’s alternative to owning a tablet is certainly one intriguing device, though it’s one that comes with a fair share of niggles that may be enough to turn you off the experience.
Pros: Simple design, Great Android overlay, as per usual for Sony, Supports microSD, Screen supports a pencil as a stylus, Resistant to dust and water
Cons: Ridiculous size, Screen has a good centimetre or two of space at both the top and bottom, making the phone appear even bigger, Camera responds poorly in low light, No camera flash, Not the best battery life, No dedicated camera shutter button like on other Xperia models, Very slippery, Display isn't the best in sunlight by a long shot
Excerpt: Phones are getting bigger, we know. Once they reach a certain size, there's less need for a separate tablet. And with the new Sony Xperia Z Ultra, that need is almost completely negated. After all, with the 6.4-inch display of the Xperia Z Ultra, why would you want to carry a 7-inch tablet as well? That's what Sony is hoping you'll think - and certainly Samsung has had big successes with its Note range - most recently the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 .
Pros: Great display, Waterproof is cool, Good battery life
Excerpt: When is a phone a tablet or a tablet a phone? It is a question that is continuing to perplex as we see more and more companies releasing giant devices that look too big to be a phone, but too small to be a tablet. The Sony Xperia Z Ultra is a prime example, complete with a mammoth 6.4-inch screen.
Pros: Great display, Snapdragon 800 processor, good battery life, slim design is really impressive, waterproofing
Cons: Too big, sharp angular design, no flash, camera so-so
Excerpt: Annonse DinSide "Sony Xperia Z1 vil nok være for stor for noen" skrev vi i vår Z1-test. Men Sony har også en modell som garantert vil være altfor stor for veldig mange : Sony Xperia Z Ultra. For dette er en "phablet" i ordets rette forstand; en mellomting mellom nettbrett og mobil. Men selv slike må holde seg innenfor rimelighetenes grenser.
