looks like docomo NTT claims another one of Sony's masterpieces. Not really shocked at all. But what I am shocked about all these people trying to analyze and compare a product that is more then likely never going to leave Japan. Also Japanese standards for what is a premium phone is extremely different compared to the rest of the world.

Also, the Ultrapixel is a gimmick coz literally it is just 4MP and the photos produced only have bigger pixels in it. It only helped HTC by giving a little more light into the sensors but still can't go up against Nokia's Pureview technology so HTC only has the great design but they also still have a lot of room for growth! This Sony Honami is much more advanced with the Snapdragon 800 than HTC One and the upcoming Butterfly S that both use Snapdragon 600. I love HTC too since I am still using my One X+ now but Sony is never left behind by HTC in anyway.
Anonymous, 30 Jun 2013Huge bezel and medicore display as usual. Sony is dead Sent from my Galaxy s4 Yeah, writing from your GS4 and surely makes you a fanboy afraid of having a device look old and sh*t coz Sammy is going to make a lot of GS4 variants even with a Snapdragon 800 that makes you fanboys look dumb coz Sammy will make you see that they will offer everything to the table after you already purchased your own. Sony was able to manage giving justice to the Triluminous technology that they have on the Z Ultra so the screen on a 5" display will surely make it look better than a 6.4" size. Screen will be sharper and there is no more problem with the viewing angles.
oh sony!!you can do much better, the thick bezel makes it look like a phone from the past. pls change the rectangle design

Leaked of sd card, easily get dirt on the rubber trim, alluminum shell are not something strong againts gravity. Big structure size equal to galaxy s4 but but come with small display. Sound were good if you in small room. But in large area the sound is just similar to other brand speaker. The camera of htc one sure can catch lots of lights but only comes with 4mp which is nokia offer 8mp with ultra pixel thec. Htc one surely brings something new and refreshment to the user and espesially for sense user. But mentioning no other brand can beat htc one not entirely true. Cause htc one itself still had flaws interm of spec , built and fetures. But seing htc geting envolving day by day, soon they will be one of the names that hard to beat. :-)

This phone better have capacitive buttons with that HUGE bezel -.-
Sony phone does not use hardware button, but why the bezel so big ? It will look awesome if they trim the bezel more.
Not really sure what your point is here, but if I was choosing the sports car it would be Sony, they have been around less time than Samsung, Apple, LG, HTC and Nokia but they have already caught up and I would be choosing the Sony Z Ultra ahead of all the competition it's a complete class apart.
Your in a parking lot and you've got the pick of any car to keep.
Theres a Sports car, an estate and a sedan, which do you go for? I'll bet 90% of you say the sports car. Same with phones, Sony isn't known for great products anymore, it's known for it's past fails.
The Z isn't a bad phones it's just not as good as the others on offer, i mean the HTC One is just superb. Nothing comes close to it.

Sony made an excellent come back in smartphone business.
The only things they need to improve is battery life and their uninspired poor hardware design. (P.S.I know you don't have much room in designing, but still....)
iXperia 4eva, 30 Jun 2013samsung is really going to cemetery soon ;)You forgot, Apple is helping to dig Samsung's grave. =)
Samsung make garbage phones, can't wait till the nexy Sony flagship phone debuts.
the first 3 leaked pics doesn't match, which means, this is a concept or unfinished design!
