Sony Xperia Z Ultra review: Specs of the oversized Android phablet, Sony Xperia Z Ultra, include a 6.4-inch display, Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor, 2 GB of RAM and 16GB storage.
The handset comes with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean out of the box but according to International Business Times, the Sony Xperia Z Ultra can avail of the CyanogenMod Android 4.4.4 KitKat CM11 M10 Custom ROM.
The Sony Xperia Z Ultra is one of Sony’s most unique creations.
Is it a phone? Is it a tablet? Or maybe a phablet? Well, since the company is calling it a “smartphone,” then we’ll just have to go with that.
Proving to be a handful, this handset has a measurement of .06 x 3.63 x 0.26 inches and a weight of 212 grams.
Aside from the massive size, we definitely can’t ignore its impressive black glass and high gloss body, front and back—the fine details that give this handset a premium and solid finish.
Plus, it is also IP58 certified dust proof and water resistant.
Top that Nexus 7 and Samsung Mega.
Aside from its classy look, the Xperia Z Ultra’s most evident advantage is its monster screen: a 6.4-inch capacitive touchscreen display with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels and a pixel density of 344 ppi, with an additional shatter proof glass protection.
It may appear too big for some, but for movie buffs and gamers, this is just the right size that they have been waiting for.
Coupled with a sound performance of its processor, nothing could go wrong with this baby.
The problem is when you turn on its camera, and 8 MP primary shooter with 3264 x 2448 pixels and no LED flash.
Meanwhile, its front camera is 2 MP.
It is really a disappointment that in what the Xperia Z Ultra exceeded in size, it lacked in camera.
Still, the Sony Xperia Z Ultra is still a head turner, not only because of its size, but also because of its premium design, quality display, and sound performance.
