Lovely screen, perfect size for internet. Fits the pocket just about but fits. Quick and responsive, good battery (normal use leaves me with approx 60% battery before i go to bed, heavy use will drain battery to 0). Using a phone as GPS needs charger(3h and battery is gone). Crap camera (day time ok but down or night will give a lot of noise). Speaker too small but with bluetooth speaker or earphones thats not an issue. Like Sony OS appearance, had Samsung before and this one is very classy(samsung too "candy crash saga" looking).
Screen freaks out when splashed with water(lots of uncontrolled entries), quick wipe solves everything.
ps. Got a nickname thanks to the phone... " Man with a telly"
Bought this phone after using Bb Q10. I must say it's a right choice. What I like is the comfortable large screen, fast response ad non lagging system, lasting battery, the screen display which is just nice for my sights (amoled is too sharp for me), nice keypad (one of the best after iPhone keypad) which makes typing easier and 6x6 grid enable me to put more app shortcuts at home screen. The drawbacks of the phone will be the awful camera and soft speaker of which I find opposite to the Q10 which has super loud speaker and camera was real good. Overall it's a good buy. That's no perfect phone after all.
Bought this phone September 2014 based on rave technical reviews and my need for a large screen to work with EXCEL while traveling. The first impressions were terrible - extreme difficulty to open slots to charge and insert SIM. The font size can be increased but even in extra large I have difficulty seeing the names of apps, reply, forward etc. A font like Arial should be available. Definitely too big. The speaker is the worst I have experienced in 19 years as a cell phone owner. But, the speed and battery life are good.
Also bought a Huawei Ascend Mate2 4G which has a 6.1 inch screen but looks much more elegant and is more comfortable to hold and use as a phone.
best device for gamers like me. i really like the graphics and specially the size. and the reason why i really like this device because it's a phone. no need to carry 2 devices. it's a 2in1 device.
Hi, love the phone as i posted earlier. I updated to 4.4.4 a few days ago, but it seems the battery drains faster than before, any tips?

sony z ultra the beast.... best in class no other ph can come closer...
I reviewed all same category mobiles from all brands,at last I choose the z Ultra and bought it last week.
I feel it is designed for me. superb phone I love it.
Sheshraj, 27 Sep 2014purchased Z ultra recently updated to 4.4.2 but why icant move apps to microsd card ? is it no... moreIt's not the phone, Android Apps is set to installed in main memory only, MMC is just an add on storage mainly to save photos, videos & music. All Android Based phone is set like this. CMIIW.
This phone is seriously the god of phones, had it for a year now still in good shape, plus battery life is massive, been watching movies and playing in the gym for 2 hours and it only drained 8% battery. Don't waste your cash on overpriced iphone 6 plus. Hope they make Z2 ultra soon.
This is definitely better than the Note 4 and iPhone 6 plus, there is just no comparison, and the 6.4" size is wonderful to use.
The Big G, 29 Sep 2014Good day everyone I just want to ask about the battery life of xperia Z Ultra? how long does i... moreThe batterylife of the xperia z ultra is good. I use the z ultra daily and i dont have to recharge more than once a day. I use it for watching tv broadcasts and watch youtube but i know when i am using video i always plug it to a powersupply. The batterylife will always drain when the brightness of the screen is too high.
I listen to music on it a lot with a sony ericsson MW1 blutooth headset. i dont have to use the Z ultra to do a lot of things. with the MW1 i can listen to incoming whatsapp messages and play my music and making calls.
I think if you are using the Z ultra to take high quality videos and pictures it will effect you batterylife.
I have never used the xperia z ulra under water because i am not a swimmer.
I hope this was useful.
Good day everyone I just want to ask about the battery life of xperia Z Ultra? how long does it last? and can we use it underwater?
