Sony Xperia Z Ultra specs review

The difference between a phone and tablet is diminishing fast, especially after the era of phablet.

Sony’s latest phablet is surely going to make people feel that 5 inches is far too small for a smartphone. It almost makes Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and the HTC One Max look like dwarfs with its massive 6.4-inch display.

But overlooking the screen’s size, it has a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, making it full HD. It has almost 180 degree viewing angle never seen before on other Xperia devices, and even gives devices such as the Galaxy Note 3, which we noted for having a great display, a downward push.

The Xperia Z Ultra is also incredibly thin, at just 6.5mm, thinner than its cousin 7.9mm Xperia Z. It makes it the thinnest full HD smartphone on the market.

Sony has somehow elongated the phone beyond a certain comfort zone, with it being a full 179mm long. Thankfully it is still lightweight at just 212 grams.

Another small attraction to the phone is its non-dependability on a stylus. Sony has eliminated its need by allowing you to use just about any ordinary pen or pencil to draw on the screen.

Xperia Z Ultra is one of the most powerful processors currently on the market Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800, which one can also find in the Xperia Z1.

Paired with 2GB of RAM makes the Xperia Z Ultra feel tremendously fast and capable of running intensive games such as Riptide GP2 without issue. Apps also take snap of a finger to open.
