pandavinz, 03 Jun 2014may i know sony z ultra android system 4.4.2kitkat steable or not?Kitkat 4.4.2 (571) on z ultra.... Running smooth this far,
Battery dont have any idea. But got warm device when playing 3d hard game, promise me updated kitkat is recomended, got google camera which is very good in lowlight envy. The Ui is marvelous try solo launcher. Sony say kitkat is bugfixing every software include sound, camera n video. Go for it now or wait 4.4.3 if you havnt updated yet.
After reviewing all of consumer opinions about this phone. I suggest that we should install the matte screen protector. It will avoid the ghost touch from sweaty surface. For me, this phone have a lot of advantages if u all can see. Thats why sony create it. Every phone have its weaknesses too. But Sony should improve this problem as soon as possible. Whats the function of the water resistance if we all can't use it freely?
Do you recommend the magnetic cable?from eBay.I bought only the magnetic end to put on the micro usb cable and it is always falling off

THANKS IN ADVANCE. .
krassi, 29 May 2014I love this phablet.I also loved my Note2 but the screen was not big enough.Screen on z ultra ... moreMy experience with Z Ultra 4G LTE, Ultra 3G and Z1 had taught me something about the flip covers. Now that I am still keeping my Ultra 4G LTE as a backup phone, (my primary daily driver is LG G Pro 2, sold off both Ultra 3G and Z1) I only charge my Ultra with the magnetic cable. Sony designed that magnetic charging port for a reason, so that the owner doesn't need to frequently open and close those flip covers as it might damage the water sealing capability. In my country, if a water resistant Sony gets sent back for claim due to water damaged, no warranty claim will be entertained so be very careful guys.
The magnetic cable can be purchased at Ebay for a low price as compared to original ones or you can also buy a dock charger over there at a reasonable price. I have used both the dock and magnetic cable (I bought 3 cables) and they can be used without problem. One point to note is, if possible, look for a 3rd party reputable charger with circuit protection and overload protection features connecting the magnetic cable to charge because I noticed many people charge their phones overnight. The charger will stop charging when the battery is full as many original chargers nowadays do not cut off when the battery is full, it's also safer for overnight charging. Second thing, the cheaper magnetic cable does not charger as fast as the original microUSB cable so it's well suited for overnight charging too.
So here you go, just sharing my experience here.
AnonD-266047, 28 May 2014Anonymous I trust you can you tell all the disadvantages of this phone? ^_^ And tell me if... moreNader, i can tell u from my experience that on a full single charge ultra will give u straight 4 hours of online (multiplayer races) play when asphalt 8 is concerned. Keep in mind u just need to set overall image quality to the lowest which is still good looking than 90% of the all android market games. Fone can handle asphalt 8 with highest possible image quality settings easily not even a single hiccup or any jerks but it will cost in form of battery timings and increased tempratures. Battery timing will drop to one and a half hour. Also note that i play games with minnium level of screen brightness :)
Anonymous, 01 Jun 2014Hello everyone I wanna buy this phone. I have noticed in many reviews about the screen. Is the... moreI used this phone since 2013 September... Totally satisfied with its features and capability. Only the quality caused problems. They might had a short testing period. The first upgrades in October eleminated the premature problems. Such as the power button functions. The screen is awesome the typing method such as off line VOice Recognation and swiping typing are really great and useful functions! Love this phone, I will keep it, until I can... on ly better camera missing for me and longer battery life.
haha, you can change size of the icons. you have to go to : personalzation - home screen grid and there is an option to make icons bigger :) great phone btw..
Hello everyone I wanna buy this phone. I have noticed in many reviews about the screen. Is the sceen very weak that it can be cracked easily.
I love this phablet.I also loved my Note2 but the screen was not big enough.Screen on z ultra us big enough.
Both Note 2 and my Ultra does not fit in my pocked.
So why not go all the way and get one out of two?
I needed to carry my Samsung 7.7 tablet. with me along with my Note 2.Thanks to z.ultra.I It,is my phone and my tablet.
I was considering Note 3.(I.am Samsung fan)which is wonderful phablet.
But only 5.7" and I never got used to S.pen.to small in my big hands.I,can write on my Ultra with normal pen.
I,is not flawless thou.
camera is not the best.
the flip over charge port is not made to last.
The sides are the weakest part,are starting to bend.
(Does someone know of good small bumper?
So I don't relay on the water secure.
glass is so fragile! and reflective. sony warranty not so good as well.... never again i will buy any sony products disappointed.... =(

But if you plan to play games with it, I think the Note 3 will last longer as it has a slightly higher battery capacity and smaller screen. I must also tell you that some games seems to drain battery power more than others, so it will also depend on which games you really intend to play. For more demanding games, expect to lose about 15% to 20% of battery power for an hour worth of gaming. And if possible, buy a magnetic dock charger, as opening those cover flaps wears out the rubber seals rather quickly.
