AnonD-266047, 26 May 2014I want to ask one own this phone. I want to know all the disadvantages of this phone. I am using this phone for half a year and i must say is over my note 3 in build quality and screen...the only dissadvantage is that my friends are making jokes of The size... And sometimes i get wierd looks from the others but the phone is perfect for me and i can even carry it in my jeans front pocket while riding my motorcycle.

i just bought xperia z ultra. version i got is c6833.. what's the difference with a c6843 version?
can i return it to the shop i bought and replace it with c6843 version?
Don't buy this phone. My 5 year old iPhone with a smashed screen works better. The Bluetooth is poor. It doesn't maintain a connection with linked devices. This is a Sony device however the sound levels and volume on the music is poor. It is supposed to be water proof/resistant however one drop of moisture/water/sweat on the screen and the thing goes berserk and re programs itself. When I uploaded the contacts, it deleted every contact going back nine months and reloaded every deleted contact I ever had. I now had up to 11 contacts with the same name with different numbers. Sony's advice - ring the numbers to find out which ones are correct. The screen is huge. We know that. However, the icons are tiny and cannot be modified. You end up looking like a fool holding this massive screen close to your farce to look at the tiny icons. In all, it's a joke.
I have been using this phone for over a month. And I must say that switching to this phone from Samsung S4 has its ups and downs. The 6.4 inch phone gave me a satisfaction I need having the most largest phone. The thinking big of Sony really made a mark on my experience and also on other people who saw my phone. The specs of the phone are good, and what I love is the built-in battery that Samsung doesn't have. But I suggest that if Sony would re-launch Z Ultra part 2 (just like the z1 and z2), make the camera to HDR, higher mp for front and rear cam and better pixel resolution for the screen. If these three were met, then I would say that Samsung must watch for whats to come from Sony.
firstknight_78, 24 May 2014yesterday i used my sony ultra z underwater for about 30 seconds and this picture was good but... morebro, the phone is water resistance not water proof , which mean it only resist up to 1 meter and 30 minutes and deeper than that or longer than that, it would break(go mad )
yesterday i used my sony ultra z underwater for about 30 seconds and this picture was good but after 2 hours the mobile goes mad and then it not work as good as it was cause of the water .my quotation is , is sony make a real water rechristens phones or its just a jock i want to know the trues and plz dont tell me connect local support team directly.they don't help us here in Egypt i think ill go everywhere and tell every body that i don't trust sony products anymore
and SONY YOU MUST GIVE ONTHER PHONE i think so
I have been using this fone for the past one month and so far my xperience is good.
Its pros are
-Good screen (Definatly u wud buy this fone for having a big screen which is bright and colorful)
-Poweful processor (Its processing prowess is commendable. It wond let u down)
-Better ram management (i am coming from samsung and i can safely tell u that it will give u twice as much room in its ram chips as much as galaxy s4 does which is crucial for better multi tasking and lag free performace)
-Water proofing (I have checked and dipped it into my aquarium tank and it is working perfectly)
-Very Low external speaker loudness .. painfully low it is
-Camera with out flash is quite troublesome.
-Camera performance is extremely poor. imagine a 5mp camera of galaxy s advance is 100% better than its 8mp shooter. Lack of flash aside its camera quality is extremely disappointing
-Battery performance is moderate which is on a low side for such big fone
Over all i would rate this fone 7 out of 10
Hey ppl. M planning to buy a new mobile but m sort of confused b/w nexus 5, xperia Z n xperia Z ultra.. Plzzz help me out

mrJ, 17 May 2014just wondering date you purchase it and from what retailer?I bought the c6843 version that sony made with digital TV include, free contract in Brazil. I solved the battery problem making a downgrade to android 4.3 and I think the ghost touch problem is related with this tecnology to use a pencil like a stylus, maybe when my fingers are sweaty, or a hardware problem. Only solved this appliying a film. Its a great phone for the design and image quality, but this problems make me unsatisfied.
Another thing, the touchscreen precision to draw, for example, it is a bit laggy if you compare like iphone or nokia lumias. I hope sony read this :)
Hi everyone, just bought the phone today and its great. however, after all the updates, i am having this problem where i get this message "Error: Camera Not Available". How can I resolve this?? Thanks
The screen quality is amazing but I dont recomend this phone. Battery too short (worst after android 4.4 update) and too much ghost touch problems. (Only solve this applying a film on the screen).
Shah, 14 May 2014Hi, just days before I bought my Xperia Z Ultra, and really enjoyed it. So much of a powerful ... moretry repairing the phone software using sony pc companion, after repair remove your memory card, factory reset your phone. use a pc copy all data off of your memory card then format your memory card on your pc. power off your phone, reinsert your memory card then power back on. see if this fix your hang up problem. sometime phone software get corrupted or bad memory card can cause hang up problem.
