Sony Xperia Z Ultra

 

Sony's 6.4-inch phone is a big performer. It is just too large for your pocket

Colourful screen, Powerful CPU performance, Sleek, slim design

Too big to use as a phone, Pen input not perfect, Battery drops off quickly, No camera flash

Sony Xperia Z Ultra review

 

The Sony Xperia Z Ultra: at last, a phone that's big enough to be a tablet

Great display ; Waterproof is cool ; Good battery life

It's enormous ; Average camera ; No flash

Sony Xperia Z Ultra

 

Even if the size appeals, the Z's poor camera and video performance let it down

Slim, attractive design ; Waterproof ; Good musically (with the right headphones)

Poor camera ; Video processing is overdone ; Feels oversized for phone use

Even if its size does appeal, its poor video performance takes away one of the putative advantages of its USP in one fell swoop.

Sony Xperia Z Ultra review

 

The Z Ultra isn't just a phablet - it's a ginormo-phone. And in a whole bunch of ways it's also ginormously excellent.

Great big screen is great for movies ; Loves bath time ; Oodles of power ; Sexy looks

Poor camera ; ABSOLUTELY MASSIVE

A super-sized premium phablet that'll happily replace your smartphone and tablet in one fell swoop

Sony Xperia Z Ultra review

 

When is a phone a tablet or a tablet a phone? It is a question that is continuing to perplex as we see more and more companies releasing giant devices that look too big to be a phone, but too small to be a tablet. The Sony Xperia Z Ultra is a prime...

Great display, Snapdragon 800 processor, good battery life, slim design is really impressive, waterproofing

Too big, sharp angular design, no flash, camera so-so

The Sony Xperia Z Ultra is a lovely thing, but as a dedicated phone - if you like to lift a phone to your ear as you should - then it's just too big to be practical. We can't help but see it as more of miniature tablet.

Is it a tablet? Is it a phone? Really... do you care?

Great screen ; Strong battery

High price ; Awful camera

Sony Xperia Z Ultra review

 

If you thought the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, HTC One Max and Nokia Lumia 1520 were big phones (and you'd be right), Sony has just out done the lot with the Xperia Z Ultra. The phablet has a whopping 6.4in display so is closer to the size of a Nexus 7 than...

The Sony Xperia Z Ultra is a nicely made device but doesn't represent good value for money. The phablet is extremely unwieldy and doesn't have a great camera. Sony would have been better off making this a 7in tablet rather than a 6.4in phone.

Why so much fuss over the Sony Xperia Z Ultra? Because it's a beast – big, bold and beautiful. Interestingly though, Sony is touting this...

Sony Xperia Z Ultra preview

 

Sony's new Xperia Z Ultra is yet another Android phone that blurs the line between a smartphone and a tablet. The company claims the 6.4in smartphone is the world's slimmest with a full HD display, measuring just 6.5mm thick. See: Acer Liquid S1...

The Xperia Z Ultra's huge 6.3in screen blurs the line between a smartphone and a tablet (aka phablet). Take a look at our Sony Xperia Z Ultra preview to find out more.
