Bought this phone 2 months ago. At first i had some doubts that the phone's performance will be that good since it's an old model. Damn, i was so wrong. This thing is a complete beast, never slows down. i always play some games and have enough battery to get me through the day, until 22-23h at least. Also Sony released 5.1.1 , and looks like there will be more updates or fixes in the future!
Yeah it's pretty big but I got used to it and now i rarely even use my laptop anymore. I have great music output,office, file managers, USB on the go, a big screen to read text or watch movies.
The only downside i can think of is that the phone's battery takes too much time to charge, about 2 and a half hours.
But really, this phone is probably the best deal out there right now, it's cheap (i got mine for $220) and offers great performance, despite being a 2,5 years old : )
Really the awesome phone battery backup is awesome this is my first time that m using sony smart phone it is great camera is also awesome in light but as i dont have much use of camers its good for me gaming rivew is cool phone dosent hang no pro superfast ligthning speed all is good
SONY WELL DONE awesome phone

I bought my Sony Xperia Z Ultra 4 months ago, so far so good. I really love it. I don't have any issues at all. But just recently the removable cover of my charging port lost its rubber that holds it from the phone itself. Can I still use it underwater? or is it still waterproof without the charging port cover? Help, anyone?
shailesh , 29 Oct 2015Hi Elisa, Just upgrade your phone to latest android version 5.1.1 and you will find all your ... moreDid u reset to factory setting before use it or direct use after the android booting system restart?......
I think z ultra is bestest phone for the entertainment in world.....
It doesn't lag superb phone ....... Don't know why Sony less down the price of this phone.......
quest, 26 Oct 2015I hate this phone.too expensive for nothing. PPI pathetic. Please do not buy it. instead come... moredont troll, the PPI & full HD features are amazing,,need to purchase it from Sony Store,,not online.
I love this Z ultra so much and i hope one day sony will launch another similar.. but with more camera pixels such as 20.3mp like z1 and yes come with flash...and upgrade rom and ram like 32gb rom /3gb ram or more but keep maintain the screensize and design... and i will never ask another phone for over 10 years come...
After 5.1.1 update.. Heating issue and battery drain disappeared.. You'll just have to restore factory setting after the update.. The best phablet in the world based on price and performance.. If you planning to buy an 8inch tab.. Buy this thing..
I bought z ultra 4 months ago from flipkart for just 14 k,
This phone is really awesome, as My phone has came with latest android version 5.1.1, it doesn't have any problems like screen off when on call,no problem over WiFi connection,when it comes to gaming - it works much smoother and faster than other smartphones and gives superb experience while watching movies on it! The phone has aluminium frame, on 2nd day after buying the phone it was dropped from my pocket on the road when I was on bike,but just few scratches on it's Al frame and small spot on its tampered screen guard and everything is ok! It also captures good images in night with its ex-mor sensor

My phone kept restarting by itself this morning until now. How can i fix it? I updated it to android 5.1 but it still happened. Pleaee help me
many said the screen breaks if it does put a tempered glass . so the screen does not break
My Z Ultra is Working Very Well in Kit Kat in Each & Every Department .My Friend got battery problem after 5.0 updates . Whether I should go for Updates or wait for Mashmellow . Fantastic Phablet For Executives. No lag speed Screen Viewing Angles Ram Management. Superb & I think Future Proof Unless googles Buggy updates both 5.0 and 5.1 are not up to mark. They are helping manufacturers indirectly To push new products At Consumers Costs.
this phone is just great just cant lie gaming wise all good and best of best camera is not good not up the mark the way the mobile is and um battery good and charges fast too very good phone rear camera good not front ummm heats up alot in the new lolipop update to which i had to put in water(thank god a water proof phone) hahaha but all good um now with new apps and all it will give trouble in using as less ram and space other wise a good phone
