Xperia Z Ultra SPA-ACX3_9The Sony Xperia Z Ultra and Xperia Z1 Compact QX10/QX100 camera attachment cases are elusive to most regions outside of Asia. If you want to see how the lens-style camera cases look in the wild, then check out some pictures below. They show the camera attachment case for the Xperia Z Ultra (SPA-ACX3) along with that for the Japanese version of the Xperia Z1 Compact, the Xperia Z1 f (SPA-ACX4).

Thankfully, the Xperia Z Ultra case has a very slim profile keeping in line with the design of the handset. The Xperia Z1 Compact case looks just as sturdy, although the frame of the camera pretty much takes up the width of the case. We’ve not seen any confirmed reports that either accessory will be heading to the west, but we’ll keep you posted if it does pop up.

    A Video with QX10 from Edirne-Turkey


    And you can watch my other videos with qx10:



    BTW They seems really great and ZU is the best :D

    i have my case for my z1 about 2 months now and the biggest flaw is no access to sd card,
    phone is hard to remove from case and corners crack and break very easily, once the corners start to break, then cracks start to appear.
    imho this case is an overpriced piece of tat exactly like the apple iphone

  • Battal Aljadei

    check out the viewing angles of z1 compact, amazing !
    but guess what ?

    Sony didn’t use the same display for the international model :””””””(

  • Fynjy7771

    Proofs, please, my dear poor troll =)

  • Basharca

    They really look pretty neat! Looking forward for them.

  • Ansar al Kashfie

    Why the streets and the parks look dirty? Dont you guys civilized enough?!!

  • valentino

    using xperia z ultra.. I’m wondering how we took the photo comfortably if we don’t have shutter button like z1?
    it will be hard to grab the lens and touch the screen or took it with volume button and will shake intensely

  • Jumbo

    Dude, fix some of your grammar mistakes before you fire crap at people would ya? (Sighs..)

  • xPnoyStar

    Anyone think that the Z1 is hot?

  • Colby Leong

    Is the case that much better than the clip on the lens itself? Is it more study?

  • Colby Leong

    I thought you could only use the button on the lens to take the pictures, and not the phone camera button…

  • Colby Leong

    Let us all rejoice that Sony is using these new displays in combination with there Triluminous and X-Reality for all there new phones

  • Stephen Mcloughlin

    really sturdy and actually looks like a real camera with lens attached, but once case is on, its very hard to remove

  • Colby Leong

    How’s the lens “bracket clip thing” that attaches to the phone, is having the lens itself attached sturdy enough that buying a case isn’t a must?

  • Stephen Mcloughlin

    its not great imo, tricky to attach and it doesnt fit flush to back of the phone, always feels like its going to fall off.plus because of power and volume keys you need to clip over to one side which unbalances phone in your hands
    case is a must have, and lens sits almost dead centre so it feels comfortable to hold but sony should have made it easier to remove and used stronger plastic

  • Stephen Mcloughlin

    ansar why is your english so bad?
    are you not civilized?
    the simple ansar answer :)

    January is ending where is my 4.3 update???

  • techielover

    no updates no updates for firmwares no updates ;(

  • Fynjy7771

    Well, I’m really sorry if I offended you, but in that article both devices are from Docomo, it could be a kind of Sony’s experiment in Japan, for example. You sad “Sony didn’t use the same display for the international model” and there are no proofs to your words. Moreover, on well known mobile site you can find a review of international model of Z1 compact and there is comparison of Compacts’s display versus iPhone 5S’s, and Compact’s display is on the same level and even better in many positions. So there is no reason to cry ;)

  • Jonfensu

    Where is your source? Your statement is based in your own opinion

    YOU-ARE-WRONG! If sony uses two VENDORS (AUO and JDI) for displays , It doesnt mean that they are using two different PANELS. Both VENDORS are using the same IPS panel.

    SONY is going to use an IPS Panel for (almost) every Xperia phone in 2014 (Z1 Compact, T2U, Sirius etc), so, there is not reason to complain… Thats what INSIDERS said

  • LancerEX

    The QX series goes well with Z1 Compact! :)

    Download “ES FILE EXPLORER” from Google play store:
    goto / sys / devices / mdss_dsi_panel / panel_id

    use text editor and read what type of panel your phone have .

    it doesn’t matter if the vendor is different neither the display type, becuz i was talking about a different viewing angles display works on SONY XPERIA Z1F which’s the Japanese model for International one,

    tell your insider to use “ES FILE EXPLORER” before anything .

    really?? i dunno i don’t have it.. my country not sell the qx10/qx100 yet..
    so the shutter button is on the lenses?? well… still uncomfortable like DSLR XD.
    but if the z1 use these lenses it will feel like that pro camera pocket..

  • Raj Singh

    You can use the button on the QX. You can use the button on the screen. You can also assign the volume button as the shutter button.

  • Colby Leong

    I does make some sense, because the lens are so much bigger than the phone. In most picture the lens is whats holding up the phone.

  • Raj Singh

    You can use the shutter button on the QX itself. You can use the shutter button on the display. You can also assign the volume button as a shutter button.

  • Jonfensu

    And? A reliable source, Zomg, said sometime ago:

    “Yes, two panel vendors. They are almost identical, both are IPS with ~ 1400:1 contrast and similarly wide viewing angles.
    There is no loser in the panel lottery this time. I’ve seen it in person and compared it to a Z Ultra, it is better than the ZU screen IMO, better viewing angles and slightly better contrast. They both had the same PPI as well at ~340 so they are directly comparable and IMO the Z1-C won out.”

  • Battal Aljadei

    similarly wide viewing angles ?
    right .

    Dear FrustratedUser,

    Apologies for the late reply, but we have to regrettably inform you that due to the propriety chipset architecture and custom drivers that have not been released by Motorola, your DynaTAC 8000X does not support further upgrades beyond Android version Thank you for your support.

  • MobileRogue

    Wow that case for the Z Ultra is extremely thin.

  • Divya Bharathi

    Very interesting thing I just come across at MyDeals247.com – I could choose any number of items (from the list) at very heavy discount rates (up to 75% off online) – more we buy more discount – I never seen this before.
