Sony Xperia Z Ultra and Z Ultra Google Play Edition review
20 December 2013
Excerpt: If you’re looking for the biggest smartphone you can get, without regard for portability and price, then you needn’t look any further than the Sony Z Ultra. Available in two flavors, one with Sony’s custom Xperia branding, apps, and services, and another straight from Google with an unmolested...
Pros: Great display, Fast performance, Water resistent design, Great display, Fast performance, Water resistent design
Cons: Awkward handling, Average battery life, Software could make better use of screen size, Awkward handling, Average battery life, Software not optimized for large display size
Excerpt: Positioned somewhere between the Z and the Z Tab, the new Xperia Z Ultra is Sony’s latest flagship phone. Actually, calling this thing a phone (or even a phablet) is a bit of a stretch, given its whopping 6.44-inch display.
Pros: Water and dust resistant. Spectacularly bright display with great contrast and wide viewing angles. 3050 mAh battery easily lasts all day.
Cons: It’s crazy big. Odd dock connector location on the left-hand side. Like on the Xperia Z, the tempered-glass front and rear panels are still huge fingerprint magnets. Grainy low-light photos.
Summary: The Sony Xperia Z Ultra has a great screen and loads of power, plus it won't die if you drop it in the bath. Its gargantuan size, however, is likely to make it impractical for most people to use as an everyday phone.
Pros: Bright, bold screen is great for movies; Very powerful; Waterproof.
Cons: Immense size makes it very cumbersome; Unimpressive battery life; Older version of Android; Camera isn't great.
Conclusion: The well-built, beautiful Sony Xperia Z Ultra is the biggest, baddest Android smartphone you'll find, but at 6.4 inches, it takes things to such a ridiculous extreme that we're not even sure it actually qualifies as a phone.
Pros: Big, beautiful 1080p display. Slim, refined design. Fast Snapdragon 800 processor. Incredible battery life. Waterproof.
Cons: Enormous. Really, it's too big. Average camera. No multitasking.
Excerpt: DO YOU find your smartphone screen too small? Don’t like the hassle of carrying around a tablet? Sounds like what you need is a phablet: a hybrid of phone and tablet. It’s larger than a phone, yet smaller than a tablet.
Excerpt: With no less than 30 devices in their Xperia smartphone range, Sony certainly doesn�t shy away from releasing multitudes of Android devices. This year�s Xperia Z flagship is competing well against the heavyweights from Samsung, HTC and Nokia, while other phones such as the Xperia SP and Xperia E...
Sony’s massive Xperia Z Ultra 6.4 inch phablet reviewed
2 July 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, Dis...
