Sony Xperia Z Ultra Android Smartphone / Tablet

The Xperia Z of Sony is crazy… it absolutely is. It’s just too good to be true, too powerful and too detailed in design. Its price is a bit too much, too, but what you get is a phone that will really tremble you for a stumble. Not enough? Here’s the bigger bone for those who have bigger pockets: the Ultra version of it. Coming with a whopping bigger display, a way lot better specs, and a lovelier battery performance, how much are you willing to trade to get one that really should perform WITH you? Besides, are you willing to pay around $700 for this?

The first thing that you’ll notice with the Sony Xperia Z Ultra is that it is overly massive, probably claiming as the world’s largest smartphone to feature a full-HD display (we’ll go to the display later). Adding to this being massive is but an ironic minimalistic design. Available in black, pearly white, and aubergine (or purple, whatsoever), the Ultra looks very promising and trendy without the distractive elements. The phablet also looks very edgy, but within a closer look, you’ll be surprised to see how the edges have been refined for a more comfortable hold. As for me, despite the big size, it sits on my left hand quite the usual way.

It’s bigger, and hence it is heftier at 212 grams. We’d love to argue that the Ultra is not really light, but would you compare the lighter competitor at the cost of a metal skeleton? The Ultra measures 179.4×92.2×6.5mm, and what you get is a premium phone that comes with tempered glass plus an anti-scratch film coating, fibre glass polyamide skeleton body, solid metal panels, and the known aluminum power button that stands above the design. Better than this, one big improvement is its being weatherproof with an IP55 and IP58 certification. Instead of the usual drown depth of 1meter for 30minutes, the Ultra boasts of an extra half meter.

We already knew about Sony’s integration of the Bravia technology unto its line of smartphones, but the Ultra adds some more than simply the known TriLuminos technology found on its original model. The said technology is now combined with an X-Reality picture processing engine, and all in all, the 1920x1080p display at 340ppi gets richer and longer color range, better contrast, less noise, refined texture and depth, or in short, a more lifelike experience. The bigger screen at 6.4inches also pronounces better viewing for movies, and if your movie gets a bit short in resolution, the same technology works to add those missing pixels up. And before I forget, the display is also vamped with an extra level of sensitivity, making metal pens and pencils work as styli as you go along.

The Sony Xperia Z Ultra is also the first to introduce the new Qualcomm Snapdragon processor that gets a way far speedier at 2.2GHz on each of the four cores. Adding to this, there’s the new Adreno 330 GPU that does not only promise better graphics and smoother web page scrolling, but also promises better power management. We have encountered the Stamina mode on its original model, but all in all, the now-3000mAh battery gets a real farther in terms to reliability and performance.

Charging can also be done using the magnetic conductor found on one edge of the phablet, and this means you don’t have to always open the microUSB flap to charge. Other specs for the Sony Xperia Z Ultra include: 3G/4G connectivity, dual-band Wi-Fi, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, 16GB internal storage (expandable up to 64GB), 2GB of RAM, 8MP main camera with Exmor RS sensor, and a 2MP front camera with 1080p video recording. The Ultra should be considered worthy of its high price, but all in all, this is one premium starky smartphone only a few could have, at least for now.
