Samsung Galaxy Note 3 vs.
Sony Xperia Z Ultra: The Android phablets Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Sony Xperia Z Ultra have been succeeded by newer and shinier gadgets, but the two handsets are withstanding the test of time thanks to their sturdy specs.
Android Authority describes the Sony Xperia Z Ultra as a stylish glass phone that is gigantic in comparison to the Xperia Z.
Users will agree that at 179.4×92.2×6.5, it is still one of the slimmest mobile devices of its capabilities in the global market.
Thanks to rubberized plastic completely covering every single port on the device, the Z Ultra will gather no dust and also be able to survive 30 minutes in 1.5 meters of water above it.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 on the other hand is designed to be a smaller fit while still trying to keep enough display for users.
The display albeit smaller than that of the Z Ultra, comes with a Super AMOLED clarity that is hard to beat leave alone replicate states Android Authority.
According to Android Authority, the camera department is where the Sony Xperia Z Ultra comes short of a win.
The Galaxy Note 3 has a 13MP camera at the back with a BSI Sensor.
It also has a flash, no lag on the shutter and revolutionizing Image Stabilization never before seen on phones.
There are numerous photo capturing features like Drama Shot, Sound Shot and even Animated Photo Shots.
These all out-trump the Z Ultra’s 8MP with no flash that means best quality photography is only achievable in plenty of light.
When it comes to front facing cameras, both devices went with the same 2MP camera so they are equaled.
Software is another important role player in these two outstanding devices states Android Authority.
The Galaxy Note 3 runs on the Android Jelly Bean On-board which is the latest Android version to date.
This makes the Xperia Z seem a little bit simplistic when put head to head with the Note 3.
The Xperia Z however still makes it so simple for users to really multi-task in comparison with the complex Galaxy Note 3.
This is backed-up even more by its gigantic 6.4in Screen.
To conclude it all, Android Authority makes your choice simple by boiling it down to whether you need a bigger display or you do not mind having plastic on a “super-camera” smartphone.
In the end the choice is always left to the consumer.
