in Hands On, Xperia Z Ultra


Xperia Ultra Z_Digi_19The Xperia Z Ultra (C68XX) is no doubt one of the sexiest smartphones that Sony has released. The super-slim handset adopts the Ombibalance design with a solid metal frame. If you want to see how the handset looks in the wild, then check out the pictures below. It makes us long for that September release date to come by very quickly.

  • Schickel

    Xperia z ultrazvuk WUTHOUT flash. WTF????

  • Rishi Rathod

    Wow……it looks so stunning!
    Sony’s designs are the best. Period.

  • DrKrFfXx

    I like how it reads SONY and XPERIA at the back, instead of XPERIA only.

  • sonyguest

    Nothing can beat sony at designing phone
    Absolutely brilliant !!!!

  • Leon

    compared to iphlol ;pppp

  • Babylonbwoy

    won’t buy it but cool pics.

  • Kazuo Satō

    I like it too but I think they should remove the ‘Sony’ branding from the front and keep ‘Sony’ and ‘Xperia’ on the back, I want a completely black front slate

  • klb

    This is really pretty!
    Its a Sony

  • DrKrFfXx

    If it is anything like the Xperia Z, peeling off the shatter proof shield will also remove the SONY logo on the front.

  • (C):stem

    Beautiful, yes, no doubt about it. Thin, hell yeah!
    Very big, unfortunately yes. I’m really afraid that in 2016 every phone we have in the market is as big as Z Ultra. I guess if this happens, I’ll rather no to have a smartphone and being an isolated uncommunicated guy LOL
    Yo know, my country is unsecure as hell, can’t think about walking in the street and talking by phone with a thing like that. Thiefs would rob me in seconds!

    Of course, that’s just a posibility. Hope SONY keep giving small yet decent devices, such as the upcoming Xperia M.

    And stop comparing every handset to the iphone, that piece of crap is not the rival to beat anymore.

  • Colby_Cheese

    I do like the new designs to the new Xperia ZU, and the supposed i1, but at the same time part of me is also saying, that design wise, its just the Xperia Z wrapped up in a sexy bumper case frame. However, like all Sony phones, the design is one-of-a-kind and that is one of the huge reasons I chose Sony over Apple, and Nokia.
    However if the i1 reflects what we have seen on the ZU, the design and placement of the speaker, and what not, and has the same specs, but to a higher degree then the i1 should not have a hard time becoming the best phone of 2013. Of course I will be extremely bummed I bought the Xperia Z and not the Xperia i1.

  • MasterMuffin

    The 2013 line of Sony has been beautiful, and they support even devs! Sony to make Nexus 5, please??

  • Colby_Cheese

    I still don’t know if that was a wise move to include the phone without flash, but we all know it was to keep its slim proportions. I think Sony was thinking that Phablets are good for entertainment like movies more than pictures. More for work and a little less for play.

  • lol

    iPhone sucks.

  • Attila

    iphone is not a phone. i don’t know why they call it iPHONE…

  • Arokhantos

    Does this have IR blaster or not ?

  • James Earley

    Like the Sony logo on the back as well as front.

  • Ally Sandrana

    Oh god.. The white version looks so good! Elegant!
    And of course black version is very sexy and cool!

  • Mac

    I really like the design yes but what about the bottom part below the screen. Why is it so big? There’s no buttons so why leaving so much space? I really hoping for the i1 Honami 2 be between 4.3 up to lets say 4.6″ in screen size, don’t like the size of the Z. But that’s just me tho.
    Still waiting for a proper jb update for my acro S.

  • Ben Lim

    SONY phones have always been the sexiest phones in the market

  • atWidget

    Sony logo on the front OR on the back but not both please!… Choose just one

  • atWidget

    No protection on the jack but waterproof… so why on the Z we need protection???

  • Z

    Very beautiful design..but I prefer phone max size 4.6″..over than that is too big handling phone for me..Sony pls release Honami with screen size 4.6″ and absolutely I will sell my Z to get Honami

  • Billy de Fretes

    maybe because when Z in production, Sony still can’t manage coating tech so they create z with flap. i believe next sony mobile devices will get coating instead of flap

  • Marco Sobrevilla

    I live in Mexico and I’m sure that would happen to me too. If I ever do get a phone that is 5 inches or more I’d have to get the sbh-52 to feel comfortable because I wouldn’t have to take my phone out in public if I had that.

  • m sacha

    yup, i still remember my S700i, man that phone was gorgeous!!

  • Julio Spinoza

    I am in Mexico too and I own the Xperia Z (one of the biggest nowdays) and I dont feel weird about it, I can put in my pocket without problem and I have to tell you that is one of a hell sexy phone, here in Mexico Sony does not sell this phone but importing was a good decisition, I am thinking to sell this one and buy me the new Ultra or wait for the Honami, I am more than glad about sony and their new policy of updates

  • Marco Sobrevilla

    I’m also glad about their new policy updates. It seems like they’re starting to get it together in that department. I know I can fit it in my pocket but I meant comfortable as in having to be on the lookout for thieves like the other person stated.
    I’m waiting for the Honami right now because it sounds more appealing to me but if it doesn’t come out with the rumored specs or is off-putting then I know I have the Z available to me.

  • Julio Spinoza

    you are right, the thieves are always looking for the hottest gadgets out there, I am not afraid of that because I live in one state where the thieves are not a deal. By the time you will decide for the Xperia Z there will be more than 2 Sony flagships out there, so, my call to you is to buy the Xperia Z and if you dont like it (I doubt) try another one
    Regards “paisano”

  • Julio Spinoza

    imitation Phone, idiotic Phone, ironic Phone, etc

  • Uchiha Dare Nial

    That’s maybe a default stylus pen place

  • nidou bossy

    and iphone looks gay laying next to the beast!

  • jag

    it’s a SONY!

  • Anonymous

    Sony, next time you make a white phone, make the front of the phone white too. Other companies do this with no problems.

  • urangsundaasli
  • Alvin

    Here in Indonesia, Xperia Z Ultra will be shipping in July/August, Calum MacDougall confirmed that… also for Singapore and 1/2 other countries…

  • ManRaj

    Beauty and the Beast! – That’s Z Ultra! :-DThey should have poured some water on the I-phone too ;-)

  • Marco Sobrevilla

    Especially where I live which is in Monterrey. It’s to about the flagship. It’s more about the specs. If the Z had a 32GB with the SD card slot available than it would’ve been a must-buy for me. I’m really only waiting for a 32GB from Sony with memory expandability.

  • http://about.me/ankitwasnik Ankit Wasnik

    True.. magnificent phone.. so big and/yet so beautiful!!

  • Faizal Mohd

    What is it on top.of the phone? Another speaker? IR blaster? Secondary microphone?

  • sonyguest

    It always does xD

  • Seik

    And it’s looks like shit…

  • Tech Gospel

    Beautiful! I hope a 16:9 3.3″ or 3.5″ qHD version w/ the S600/800 is in the works.

    I think Sony should do a black on black logo on the front (Sony in etched matte over the gloss screen) and the same on the back.

  • Mehten

    Stunningly beautiful!!

  • Tech Gospel

    LCD controller/antenna/parts of the phone that are too thick to place an LCD screen on top of without making the phone thicker. Ergonomically you’d also have a harder time using the phone if the screen was edge to edge. Although mostly, it’s manufacturing limitations.

  • Billy de Fretes

    they put iphone beside Z ultra simply because iphone 4 design inspired by sony (forgot what series) and it’s because steve jobs loves sony design

  • roeshak

    For me personally, the only thing that pleases me about the ultra is the display. At long last, Sony have turned the page on poor viewing angles. The 800 cpu unlike the 600 is also noticeably faster than the s4 pro. Not a huge difference but it’s noticeable.
    To all those worried that the size of the ultra will become the norm, think again. That’s not going to happen. It’s too flipping big to be the standard. Sony themselves say it’s targeted at the business consumer. Those wanting a larger display for increased productivity on the go. Not a device for the masses.
    Having said that, they don’t seem to have done much to minimize the dimensions. The top and bottom bezels still look too big. It could and should have been smaller.
    Honami is the one to watch even though it’s looking like a 2014 release. The Z refresh is looking more likely by the day for a September launch. By the way, I don’t believe the recently leaked pictures we’ve seen are the Honami but the Z refresh. Either that or Honami and Z refresh are one and the same.
    All in all, hardwarewise, Sony have definitely reached the top. Software is where they’re still lacking. Releasing near stock android six months after Google’s official launch is just plain lazy and poor. Maybe their attention will turn to software development now that hardware is all sorted. One can only hope.

  • Carljn

    As long as you’re not extreme in your preferences there will be a phone for you.
    There will probably always be a phone in the 4-4.5″ spectrum. And the future 4.5″ will be smaller than todays 4.2″.
    Lots of people complain and say that the OEMs only make large flagships and fortget about the people who want a small device with high specs.
    The reason is that smaller devices are harder to squeeze high specs into.

  • Carljn

    In an interview the lead designer said that they wanted the user to be able to place his or her fingers on each side while in landscape. So they made it the width of a thumb.

  • Ashad Mamood

    That’s the trick isn’t it? That is what Apple are doing really well. Squeezing a high end phone in a 4″ screen size phone. Samsung could never do that!

  • Ashad Mamood

    Looks gay? It’s actually quite a nice and well built phone. You could never accuse Apple of designing ugly phones like Samsung. They do rip you off tho with those prices

  • Marshall

    This is a beast of a phone, I’m just curious behind the reasons of the no flash on the back decision.

    I read on some forums that its too thin, not a camera phone, so is the Exmor RS sensor really that good with out a flash like just any kind of light can give you a good quality picture from it?

  • Ashad Mamood

    It’s too big. Should have went for minimum bezels like Xperia ZL. Would have made the overall phone smaller. Also they should use the same back material of the Tablet Z. Its lighter than glass.Battery should have been at least 3500mah for such a screen size. Should have been slightly thicker to accommodate larger battery

  • Mac

    Good information thank you!

  • Augusta

    Beats the plastic sg note 3,4,5..whatever! But no camera led/xenon flash, really? Is it fixed? Then Pffffh

  • Fact

    Sony makes the most beautiful smartphones. Fact.

  • Shreyash Amriwala

    Hmmm whats that?

  • mythic

    Xperia s jelly bean bugfix when, Sony?

  • Augusta

    It’s a mole i think. lol

  • Carljn

    The iPhones aren’t as high end as they are believed to be. The 5 for example is running a 32nm dual-core cpu, with a 1440mAh battery, a slightly above qHD screen. The chassis is well built, part from the fragile screens.
    It is true that it’s Apples flagship device. And it’s quite smooth. But that’s because it is running natively IOS, on C++. Android is running on Java through a virtual machine, making it heavier.

  • nidou bossy

    if it doesn’t fit ur hands it doesn’t mean that it’s too big… for me it fits in my hands perfectly!

    this is it.. u can not say they should have, and or, like this or like that!

    that’s the line up of 6″ and above displays!

  • Guest

    why would you remove it?

    if u want to ruin a beauty like that, u better do have it in the first place!

  • nidou bossy

    i respect your style but it would look so plain without this beautiful Sony logo shining in the front!

  • nidou bossy

    well said… BTW, where are u from?

    cuz street robberies are everywhere, not just in ur country, and it’s been occurring ever since the Nokia 3310 time, but i know, the bigger the phone the easier to get rubbed!

  • nidou bossy

    wrap it in a chain and no one would get off of ur hands :D

  • nidou bossy

    …from Z to Z Ultra or to Honami H1!!!

    what a great choice and stylish idea ;)

  • Kazuo Satō

    Just different tastes I suppose.
    It’s only a minor thing though, no big deal.

  • nidou bossy

    well, yeah that’s right, depend how we look at it from a different points of views!

  • Marco Sobrevilla

    Lol That’s true but then I wouldn’t want them to take me with them. :P

  • Kazuo Satō

    Couldn’t have explained it better my friend!
    Very well put!

  • Ashad Mamood

    This isn’t a Sony site! Duh

  • Ashad Mamood

    But that’s the thing isn’t it? Apple have yet to produce a phone with quad core processor or 2gb ram as they don’t need it. Also they haven’t exceeded battery capacity over 1500mAh. That leaves them a lot of headroom for the future. Android devices already hitting Octa cores 2Gb ram and 3000mAh battery. Not much headroom left without making the device too big,bulky and heavy

  • Ashad Mamood

    What is it that you don’t understand? The bezels are too big? wait till the Note 3 comes out and see the difference? Even Galaxy Mega 6.3 which is comparable is smaller. Screen to size ratio should be high as possible. The phone is too big. Its more a tablet than a phone. Try holding and using it in one hand for extended period of time?

  • Ashad Mamood

    Explained what? I mainly buy Sony electronics but i’m not a blind fanboy not to except how successful the Iphone is and its a small well built beautiful device. Sony could learn a lot from Apple

  • nidou bossy

    lmao :D

    yea, they’d do it :D

  • Kazuo Satō

    Yeah just throw out names like ‘fanboy’, really mature!
    Apple is constantly lagging behind pretty much all Android OEMs,

    The external build quality is good but the internals such as processor and RAM are lacking, they get away with this because it’s native C++ not a virtual machine like android, so it’s still smooth.
    They charge waaay to much for the device, their profit margins are ridiculous.
    The restrict users on the software side as well as using proprietary cables etc. that cost a fortune.
    The device itself has nothing cutting edge about it, The camera that they are so proud of is mostly made of Sony parts.
    So the hardware is nothing special as you can see….
    The software is really restrictive, every time I use one I think it was designed for Idiots.

    Now with IOS especially ‘IOS 7′ they completely copying a lot of features from Android and calling them ‘revolutionary’!
    You could get an android phone for 200-300 that would blow it out of the water!!
    They have you fooled into thinking they are ‘special’ or ‘revolutionary’ by constantly repeating those words, there is no substance behind it!

    There is very little Sony could learn from apple if anything at all!
    Remember the first iPhone was designed based around trying to copy Sony’s hardware design as we saw in the Samsung v Apple trial.

    You obviously don’t know what your talking about

  • Jason

    Not sure why you are hanging out in this thread if you’re just going to keep whining and crying about “it’s too big! it’s tooo BIIGGGG! wah wah wah”. There are lots of other phones in Sony lineup that’s smaller. Android phones are all about choice. I know that I, and tons of other people, will be buying it because of its big size.

  • Kazuo Satō

    Yes the screen/ size ratio is very important but when you get into phablet territory it becomes less important.
    It’s NOT intended for one hand use, and when comparing the build quality and how thin it is compared to other phablets it’s an very good device.
    If screen/size ratio is so important to you above all else why do you keep harping on about your inferior iPhones? talk about shitty screen/size ratio!

  • Cristi13

    Sorry my friend, I think there is no place here for you and me unless we worship sony…

  • kaostheory

    I think by saying gay they mean it looks like a girls phone. The iPhone and screen are to small for me and don’t suit a mans hand.

  • noname

    purple z ultra….. beauty

  • dimos

    you will probably have to pay for a slave so he can hold this beast during your calls.
    (no offence about slaves or human rights, i am against slavery :P )

  • hans

    Seems like the front screen is big enough to be set as a temporary flash (if you ever need one) For Camera purpose, in all my lifetime with Android phones, almost never have i turned it on to take a picture ;)

  • PRNOHFT

    Does anyone feel that it kinda looks like a porn gallery but with mobile phones? Or is it just dirty minded me?

  • Jhonbert Magana

    Same here. Just use if I need a flashlight/torch

  • XcDcS

    Iphone nice? Are you drunk?

  • Ashad Mamood

    Are you a blind fanboy?

  • Ashad Mamood

    Yes for you maybe. Everyone has their own preference!

  • sonyguest

    Yeah in a wayy ou are right iphone does have a premium feel compared to that plastic samsung, but the design is not different from 4s

  • bimmersonygasm

    I agree with everything except updates. They have seriously stepped up their game this year with that and are ahead of same big names out there. Samedung and HTC to make it clearer. Plus their design are so epic that Sony fans keep patience and come back for more.

  • Adrian Bator

    I think Iphone looks ugly so what?

  • Jack Tsiwt

    Survey says that most people open their smartphone more frequent ,to check online news, magazine ,social network ( checking uploaded photos and videos ) and sometimes playing games than using it for just call or sending message…its better to play games,read magazine and news and open picture and videos in a big screen isn’t it?

  • (C):stem

    But then, we’re losing the concept of small phone or portable device. People really doesn’t need a big screen to check all their stuff, this isn’t necessary. this is what companies have implemented and they have told us what we need, so, it’s very normal that having a bigger screen is a tendence. Question: is there going to be a limit for the size of our devices or will we end using something like this?

    IR Remotecontrol

  • Ashad Mamood

    Do you own the thread like? Are you only allowed to comment? The bezels are too big and the device is larger than it should have been. This will not be a mass market item but a niche product aimed at the business user. Who would be stupid enough to lug this around with them all day in their pocket? Its way too big and heavy. Could have been more compact and lighter with a bigger battery. Missed opportunity for Sony. I bet the battery life is rubbish?

  • Ashad Mamood

    Sorry if i’m not a blind fanboy

  • Ashad Mamood

    And you do eh? Your a fanboy and a blind one at that. Apple revolutionised the smartphone. You would have to be an idiot to not accept that. Same with the tablet. Iphones are well known to have good looks and build quality. There is no doubting that. Yes they are expensive but its like buying Denon audio visual equipment compared to Hitachi. Don’t forget Sony used to be a very expensive company too. Charging way more than most other electronics companies. That’s why they are now floundering because companies like Samsung and LG have undercut them on nearly every product. Sony owned the tv market. Where are they now?
    Talking about restrictions and proprietary cables then Sony is also a culprit until recently. PS Vita memory cards and PSP ones both proprietary and way too expensive. Sony were never too good with software. Remember the minidisc? Sony have been left behind because their software integration with hardware was rubbish. Great hardware but letdown by poor software on many products.
    There is very little Sony could learn from Apple? This comment alone shows your blind fanboism. Apple is at the top with $140 billion in the bank. It has all the core aspects in place like massive data centres, Itunes,App store and retail stores. It knows how to market and sell products and how to make money.

    Sony a once great innovative company that let its own arrogance bring it to its knees.
    For your information i mainly buy Sony products. I still have a working Sony cassette player from the 70′s my father bought. I’m just not a fanboy and happily admit i own an Iphone 5 along with Xperia Acro HD,Xperia T and Z. Tablet Z and Ipad 4

  • Ashad Mamood

    And? your point being?

  • Ashad Mamood

    The bigger the device the better it has smaller bezels. Screen to size ratio is more important as the bigger the screen gets. Why would you want to unnecessarily have a device a few cm’s too long or wide. That could be the difference of it fitting in your pocket or not. You want to get over yourself and calm down and stop being biased. I know one thing when it comes to screen quality the Iphone hands down beats the Sony phones. And also in camera quality too even tho the sensor is a Sony.

  • Ashad Mamood

    Well said! But watch out the fanboys don’t attack you for having a rational opinion

  • Netto Dashius Hexareus

    Well know what, keep on bashing coz I’m gonna buy this phone… cry till you cry bloods, you can’t stop people buying this monster. AAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!

  • liqn7

    Likely noise cancelling mic. Doesn’t have IR blaster…
    Love the phone and will definitely get. Just wish it had an LED to use as a torch.

  • Shreyash Amriwala

    Hmm It could be noise cancelation mic as it doesn’t have one on it’s back

  • Shreyash Amriwala

    It is not having IR Blaster I really thought it was there, It is really very useful thing

  • Cristi13

    That’s how things happen here, you get asaulted if you criticyze sony, or if you dare to mention about their updates “program”. Unfortunately things will not going to change anyrime soon, *sigh*

  • Jack Tsiwt

    this is irrelevant ,and there’s no way Sony or any company will introduce such a smartphone like that…Z Ultra in my opinion the size is just right…i have Z with me but it doesn’t have the stylus and I’m looking for a device that i can carry , like the organizer or like having a small notebook with me ….i don’t like Samsung note,for me it looks like a toy…i don’t like the design and feel of it..it’s just a matter of taste and preferences…

  • roeshak

    You should know by now what to expect from fanboys.
    I just ignore them. You can’t hold a rational conversation with one. It’s impossible. They form emotional attachments to brands so reason goes straight out of the window

  • Jack Tsiwt

    screen quality? ,no way….the viewing angle maybe…but saturation and sharpness…in your dreams… i Phone so far doesn’t have have full HD display…retina display? its just like the bravia engine, a software that enhances the overall picture quality of the screen…remember! Sony produces they own Hardware…not like the Apple…

  • Kazuo Satō

    Sony has sacrificed the front footprint for thinness because it’s aiming to have all it’s products the thinnest in their class.
    pretty much every apple product has HUGE bezels, you would want to get over yourself, I understand criticism but every single one of your comments bashes Sony and talks up competitors yet you claim to like Sony products, Your just a troll and a very bad one at that
    0/10 go home :-P

  • Kazuo Satō

    Apple is at the top because it panders to hipsters and swaggits, I think you forget that many companies had touch screen phones before apple, Sony had the P900 series.
    Apples success has more to do with it’s marketing than anything special or revolutionary.
    Sony thought it was too big to fail and now its coming back, Apple are just insufferable their commercials make me laugh.

  • nidou bossy

    ifault won’t survive the water drops :D

  • Ashad Mamood

    Sony missed a huge opportunity here by making this device too big and its heavy too. They should have went for the ZL approach and kept the bezels too a minimum. Good thing the screen is an improvement. But that 3000mAh battery is too small for the screen size and fast processor. Lets see if it has the battery life to match the Galaxy Note?

  • Ashad Mamood

    I’m not a blind fanboy thats the difference. If another company makes a better product i don’t dismiss it like you. Sony are not the best in any market anymore except maybe in game consoles. So give other products respect when they are indeed better.

    Are you gonna make me go home fanboy?

  • Ashad Mamood

    You another fanboy? Not talking about screen resolution but the quality of the display. Or is that beyond you fanboy understanding? I’m not going by my opinion like you i’m going by scientific tests that prove the Iphone display to be better than any Sony phone out now. Check Displaymate out and maybe you might learn something instead of talking from your rear.
    Apple don’t make their own hardware and?
    Sony don’t make a lot of their own hardware too

  • Ashad Mamood

    Are you completely stupid or is fanboism clouding all rational thought? No one is stopping you buying anything. This is a discussion thread for differing opinions. If we all praised Sony all the time then they would never improve and we’d still be waiting for updates

  • Kazuo Satō

    Giving other products respect,comparing them against each other and criticizing them for their flaws is fair game but you are constantly turning around and insulting people and calling them names just because they don’t agree with you.
    I’m going to stoop to your level.
    No,it’s just a suggestion, if I looked like you I wouldn’t ever leave my home in the first place!
    I can tell these products are near and dear to your heart because they’re the only way you can converse with the outside world without disgusting people with your grotesque ugliness.

  • Ashad Mamood

    Aww! is the fanboy upset cause i didn’t agree with him? I haven’t called anyone any names. But you fanboy tendencies are at the forefront of your replies. Are you a professional model? Cause you look like an average nobody to me! I won’t bother lowering myself to your sad level because that’s what fanboys do. They try to personally insult others cause they ain’t got a leg to stand on in their arguements!

  • Ashad Mamood

    Apple have a loyal brand following very similar to Sony’s following in the 80′s and early 90′s. Doesn’t matter who made the first touch screen phone or tablet but who revolutionised it so you had to get one. That company was Apple. Yes i agree ios is limited and a closed system. Its also a very expensive platform and devices. But it caters for the people who need that type of system and ease of use. I personally use both android and ios and down the line will try WP8 when its viable.

  • Ashad Mamood

    Just wait till you see the battery life? Lets see how much screen on time the battery can handle?

  • Jack Tsiwt

    so tell me what is your basis about choosing the best quality of the screen, if not the resolution?color accuracy? viewing angle? have you own any of Sony phone before ? I guess not !I’m not being a fanboy here I’m just telling you what is the real difference in actual comparison in real world not by showing it on youtube or any video uploaded in the internet ,I’f you have time go and check the arc S and the I phone 4 or 4s…yes Agree! not all the hardware are form Sony but at least most of them were developed and design by their engineers !

  • Kazuo Satō

    keep jumping from being a troll to rational discussion and back,
    I’m done with you, refusing to feed the trolls any longer,
    1/10 for making me reply

  • Jack Tsiwt

    Maybe you say that now, but what about if SONY releases a 7.0″ screen device in 2015? Will you say that is the the size is still just right?

    I dind’t expect that SONY would release a device like Ultra, ever, I thought that only samsung was going to do that, and look now. Then I understood what’s the problem: the first place in sales, in this case samsung, is the true rival to beat; also, the current first place (samsung) determinates in some way what’s trending and unfortunately, bigger and bigger devices are. And you can’t say no, because samsung was the first to release a big (and ugly) device, the galaxy note, with an exhaustive marketing campaign with it, wich it was succesful. I retake my past point: companies dictate what is trending and they make a big marketing labor to make us think we “need” a device like that. We actually don’t have a real variety to choose, for example, in my case, I will never find a phone with a 1.5 GHz quadcore, 1 Gb in RAM, 16Gbs in internal space, slot to 32Gbs micro SD and a 3.5″ or 4″ screen, with a size of the Xperia Ray or Xperia Neo, for example. That’s not respecting the “tasty” of people because no company offers me what I really want.

    However, I must admit that Ultra is beautiful, even if I’m not interested on it because its size. Yes, you will have a stylus but we’re not talking about the extras, but the size of the device. I remember that Motorola released a small and pretty phone years ago and had a stylus included, and it ran linux.

    Apple Iphone.

    Processor: Made by SAMSUNG (till 4S)
    Display: Made by Chinese that makes display for LG and SAMSUNG
    RAM: Korean made
    Optics: Made by SONY
    Touchscreen Glass: Made by Corning aka Gorilla Glass

    They just attach one good apple logo and sell it as an apple product. Shame on apple fanboys.

    Look at iOS. Same old stupid swipe to unlock since ages. same old idiotic icons on the homescreen.

    Look at android. Came from nothing to 64% world-wide marketshare. Homescreen widgets, live wallpapers, different launchers to customize, direct drag-and-install procedure,3rd party integrated themes,1000s of Mods in XDA community and what more.

    What do you crapple people have, bunch of dull icons. Lol. Get a life fanboys. stop saying apple is great when it cant manufacture its own product. lol.

  • Raj Ricardo

    it is targeted FOR PEOPLE WHO WANTED BIGGER SCREENS FOR PRODUCTIVITY. ITS NOT A PHONE ITS A PHABLET. ZL is a PHONE. Mind it. Stop comparing PHONES AND PHABLETS.

  • Ashad Mamood

    Ok Fanboy!

  • Ashad Mamood

    You know when someone is desperate when they have to try to attack someone about their looks? Your sad and ugly yourself thinking only your opinion is the right one and nobody else can have one.

    Sony isn’t above criticism. Its products aren’t always the best. You can try all you like but at the end of the day Apple and Samsung are the top two. Your fanaticism won’t change that. With criticism and listening to its customers will Sony improve and regain its former glory

  • Ashad Mamood

    Listen friend i own Xpria Acro HD,T and until a couple of days ago the Z too. I also have the Tablet Z an iphone 5 and Ipad 4. Partner has Htc One. Its a known fact the Sony phone screen quality has been poor because they are using cheaper display. HTC One display is better and so is the iphone 5. Better colours,saturation,contrast and brighness. Viewing angles are much better too. This has been proven scientifically too by Displaymate.

  • Ashad Mamood

    Stop playing the victim. Your telling me to go home and calling other products small shitty screen size etc. Don’t dish what you can’t take?

  • Ashad Mamood

    This post made me laugh!
    Please try using google and researching before replying?
    I’m not an Apple fanboy but i use some of their products. I also use android devices and when wp8 becomes viable i’ll use them too. I’m not prejudiced to one platform. They have their strengths and weaknesses. Each to their own.
    You’ ve made yourself look stupid by stating Apple don’t manufacture their own product. Sony don’t manufacture their product either. They make some of it like the camera sensor and display but most is from other companies. The manufacture is done by Foxconn or Pegatron duh

  • Ashad Mamood

    I like Sony and have been buying and using their products from 1990. There is no need to insult other products just because you don’t like them. Have a rational arguement without just bashing Apple or Samsung just because you like Sony.

  • Ashad Mamood

    Where have i stated anything about the screen size? Do you even read what others write before replying? I’m on about the large bezels at the top and bottom and sides. Wouldn’t the device be better if you could knock a few cm off the top and bottom? A cm off the sides while keeping the large screen?

  • Asshad

    Ok so it’s big. Now what? And do you even know the reason why the bezels are thick? Go read more about the Neonode Touch Screen. You should understand why.

  • Gorga Naibaho

    Friend, just like you are free to disagree with other people then other people are also free to disagree with you. Having seen most of your comments I think you’re a person in the tech biz but that doesn’t mean you should be this aggressive about it. You’ve made some valid points – no point in responding to flames then, right? Also, there’s a place called XDA where you can flaunt your knowledge in a pedantic way and still fit right in.

  • Ashad Mamood

    Agreed friend. Too many people on here who won’t have a bad word said about Sony. Why flame other devices simply because you don’t like it? I know the Samsung SG4 is a top phone just like the HTC One and both have been reviewed as to be better than Sony XZ by various tech sites,magazines and blogs. I personally don’t like Samsung devices but won’t flame it because hardware wise its a top notch device. Not too keen on the build and plastic nature of the device. Htc One is amazing device hardware wise but i don’t like sense UI. Too many on here coming out with crapple,ishit etc. It’s ok for these to flame but when they get it back its trolling.

  • Jack Tsiwt

    if they released a 7 inch size and put a sliding keyboard i think it would be nice,as long as they keep the device premium design and material…maybe you just don’t see where ,why,or how you will use this device…researcher,designer ,engineer thinks before making this device…And Sony this time is no room for trial and error…

  • Jack Tsiwt

    I told you to look on the same device you want to compare and play the same videos or image …and excuse me ,Sony is not using cheap lcd screen on their flagship device,but i must agree i like the Htc one screen, it has nice contrast ..but put the I phone 5 to compete with full hd display of X Z…huh?keep on dreaming…you are just saying that you have these device to prove your opinion is right….viewing angle? agree…its one of the real advantage of IPS screen… I phone screen is a proof of that…

  • (C):stem

    Then, a whole new concept is gonna be introduced, and we will forget about the words “cellular” and “smartphone”.

  • (C):stem

    I’m from Mexico. And yes, you’re right.

    Maybe I exaggerated a little bit about the robbing thing, but believe me, I’ve seen thiefs in the street suddenly taking a smartphone away and running like hell. Others use the violence, of course :/

  • Jack Tsiwt

    the words will be change to “smartestphone” ……just kidding…its just a new way of communication though stylus support is not new,but i like the fact that you can draw ,put some life from a simple letter you type…handwriting recognition…i want to see my own handwriting to be display,that you would not appreciate on a smaller screen….like Sony said is for a business oriented device….its takes everything we need,you have a smartphone,a tablet, a portable pc…in the palm of your hand…

  • Jack Tsiwt

    i don’t insult other products or other company ,you did.I’m just saying Sony has a better screen quality except the viewing angle compare to apple, i didn’t say Samsung or Apple is bad company ,you are just being so emotional and exaggerated…In Fact consumer electronics industry needs some competition,the consumer will benefit from it,because of competition consumer will get better products,better customer service,reliable products and useful products.
