My Husband and I both have Sony Xperia Z Ultra Phablets.
I would like to give our experience so far with Z Ultra.
Screen is bright (Yes the surface is shiny like all mobile phones and also Apple iPads. We have ordered anti glare screen protectors. I used one on Blackberry Z10 which stopped the reflection issue and also stopped finger print build up). The ringtone volume yes could be louder but when we are out and about we use the FREE Stereo Bluetooth that came with our Ultras. We already have purchased protective leather cases and so do not suffer from scratched screens being protected and with screen protector will be further protected. Battery on Android 4.3 is Excellent and can last up to 4 days in stamina mode. Camera is excellent in daylight and if you have sufficient artificial lighting such as Halogen lighting takes good indoor photos.
Music player is also good.
So far I have nothing to complain about.
Many people will find the screen size to be a problem in which case I would suggest Z1 or Z1 Compact.

New2sony, 18 Mar 2014Hi everyone, I am using note 2 from last 1 year. Now I want to replace my note 2 with this Z... moreThe external speaker is very low, you can easily miss calls. The screen is unbelievably reflective and scratch prone. Besides that everything is perfect.
An amazing device with an unusable screen. Only to use in the dark! Check the review...when they say the screen is very reflective they know what they are talking about. I never thought using a smartphone could be such a pain till I got my z ultra. Wherever there is light you will only see reflections. And it gets completely scratched in normal use...I will sell mine
Yoel Babymilo Ultra, 20 Mar 2014I've been using Sony Xperia Z Ultra for 3 months+ My positive remarks -Awesome camera -Walk... moreYou must be joking. I have a z ultra and the screen is unusable.it is the most reflective thing I ever used. I bought this device because I wanted a big smartphone to surf on the Web on my everyday 1 hour commute in the mtr and I keep using my old Nokia because the only thing I see in this phone is reflections. I already tried more than 5 different screen protectors and can't solve the problem.

This ultra is extremely good,
I have been using xperia zl for the last seven month and I sold it and got this beautiful ultra z.
If you want a good phablet,please go for it because it's good in every thing though it lacks the flash.
I've been using Sony Xperia Z Ultra for 3 months+

New2sony, 18 Mar 2014Hi everyone,
I am using note 2 from last 1 year. Now I want to replace my note 2 with this Z... moreIf yah got cash buy the note 3 way better than ultra

SO better buy nexus 5 galay note 3 or lg or lenovo
i promise you sony is garbage ...
If i can only get my money back to buy note 3 or iphone
I am using note 2 from last 1 year. Now I want to replace my note 2 with this Z ultra. I don't have any problem with the size of the phone or with the absence of the camera flash.
But one thing thats really bothering me is the In-call volume from the earpiece. Lots of people are reporting super low volume problem during the call.
An exact report from the actual user will be highly appreciated and if you could compare it to note 2 that would be awesome.
Thanks in advance,
I am also using my sony charger but still stop charging at times it doesnt charge at 30 percent how long does your ultra charge mine doesnt even reach 100 only 30 this past few days ..
