i had my xperia ultra Z underwater experience... I made sure all the safety ports wer closed, then a few minutes after it all went black and signaled low battery.. and never charged again... since it's only 6 mos wen i bought it i brought it immediately to Sony Service center, then after a week they sent me a msg informing that may warranty was voided due to corroded motherboard. so i was like, what???? how come if i made sure that all the safety flaps wer closed so how come water would leak inside?..... but the service center insisted that they cant repair the phone because the warranty is already void, they want me to pay for the new motherboard which cost 11,000 Php...it's like saying that i should buy a new phone instead...they said maybe the rubber port in the safety flaps expired due to everyday use... but i was using the phone for 6mos only, how come it will expired for a very short period of time... so wat they're saying is the quality of the safety flaps are poor? with the cost of that kind of phone?...I'am very dissappointed with SONY for allowing service center not to properly assess what really happened and they don't take into consideration what their clients are saying... even wen i tried telling them that i made sure i closed the safety flaps properly and even put a tape on each safety flaps to make sure water wont leak inside...... til now they still haven't done to repair my phone... :(

I bought Z Ultra. It worked great and I loved big screen. Unfortunately, the touch screen was broken when I put it in my pocket. The body of the phone is not built with metal but it is plastic. It can easily be broken when we sit that the pocket make it tight and bend. There are several same cases. I hope Sony will build big screen with metal.

Dear sony the phone is great but new software really sucks
1) it has serious performance issue I mean it is crashing a lot it never crashed like this before
2) the phone is heating faster than before
While some of the previous issues have been solved like notification sound but you really need to solve this immediately
Sony Xperia Z Ultra was my first higher end smartphone i bought... and let me tell you i have never been happier... its really good... very fast processor, big screen,awesome graphics and a lot more is in the package.. but just like every other things in the world, it also has some set backs like an 8mp camera without LED flash and also the speakers are kind of not that loud.. but you have to understand that its a waterproof phone thus some setbacks.. if u can ignore these things just as i have, then i would say its just close to perfection... so if you are planning on purchasing it then go ahead and do it but if you are skeptical then maybe try other model or brands... but i am mostly loving for its humongous screen.. :D
For those who planned to buy this phone, if u came acrossed negative comments, ignore..if positive, its True, I Mean it
Theres lots of hater here, for me the only downside (consider u fine with HUGE Screen now that you consider in getting this awesome monster) is only one - which is the Camera
Personally, i Never feel the camera suffice. I always hope Sony considering in making Z Ultra with Z1 Camera and OBVIOUSLY upgrade and enchance its Secondary camera bcoz they just horrid.
I always found myself in love with camera for iPhone just iPhone is too small!
