Hey Guys, got mine yesterday..must say I'm turning to Android after being Windows Phone user for 2 years..reason of switchg becoz my LG E900 not functioning well anymore (wear and tear)..I must say, Z Ultra Is a STUNNING device..email integration, messaging experience, apps Availability, and UI interface etc beyond my expectations (anything u can expect from Android 4.3..
Now the downside..for those who Cares and I believe worth mentioning..the camera of 8mp is very decent ( disappointment at some point) and the front camera as well.. I know that this has been mentioned many times, but I do believe Having a flash is a must..and MOST importantly call QUALITY is terrible even at loudest call volume..
Enough Said, maybe it's a devilish plan (strategy to some 'people'), it's a WAY in pushing their accessories invent alongside to compliment Xperia lines up..I found myself having to pay extra dollars for sbh52 Bluetooth and Qx10 lense (tat means more extra 'thing' to be carrying around)
LUCKY me, I'm not a very big fan of photography, having to be well known for their Supreme QUALITY and awesome Brand makes me go for SONY, and obviously their awesome Big screen..Video Streaming, Games, and UI Pop! I think tats all I have to say..cheers Folks!
Abhishek, 30 Dec 2013I feel it is waste. Its screen is toooo big and doesnt evn hav a flash. And camera is only 8MP... moreHi friends, can u tell me how to download 1080p hd video for sony xperia z ultra
After updating to Android 4.3 Jellybean via PC Companion I noticed that my Wifi is not turning on and my Bluetooth cannot detect/locate any near devices. Anyone have the same issue?
I feel it is waste. Its screen is toooo big and doesnt evn hav a flash. And camera is only 8MP. I feel its facilities dont match its cost. We can buy a Mobile frm Samsung which is better and cheaper.
i got my ultra z 7-days back and it's been working so well..got at least 10 hrs mix usage (video/web/talk)per charge..

Anonymous, 30 Dec 2013Did u try power button+volume up?For 5 to 10sec.
I'm SGN3 user but just 2 weeks ago, I bought mine, my S pen doesn't work as well. So, I decided to buy XZU, does it have good performance? And I heard we can use ordinary pencil as stylus on ZU, is it right?
I hope sony improves the xperia z ultra camera by software on the next firmware update
i bought Experia Z Ultra recently and it hanged only after 4 days, when it hang it is very hard to make restart. it was still on but hanged and the screen is black (i know it is still on from the indicator). i but on the charger and still it is hanged and it becomes hot. so i decide to go to the sony maintenance.
they were good and i received new one because my complain was before the end of the first week( as per Sony policy within the first week replace. if you exceed the first week they will repair only)
today only after two weeks from receiving the second one, it hanged again, and it is really strange. there is only one normal button i try to use without any effect.
i am sure it is not the battery because it was 70% the charge.
this is my experience with the first Experia Phone for me.
kappameen, 28 Dec 2013hi, thx for your openion. am planning to buy this phone!! but everybody suggesting me dont buy... moreif you are so concerned about the picture quality. avoid this phone. it's fair for today's phone. but you have better choice if you really want nice quality pic.
but on contradiction. is there any phone that can take picture in the night and still looks good with a little xenon light? I don't think so.....
for this phone, in daylight, it's okay. but in the night all I can say is it sucks. it sucks even in indoor room with one light source from your fluorescent bulb. the auto white balance is even worse. you better take a real digital camera with you if you need to take pictures on where you go at night.
it could go better if you choose to shoot in mannual mode, only if you understand how the speed shutter and ISO relates. you acan get nice pic.
dennisity, 19 Dec 2013Great phone the camera doesn't need a flash and the battery life is great. Works well for me, ... morehi, thx for your openion. am planning to buy this phone!! but everybody suggesting me dont buy as this fone doesnt have any flash light. its so expensive fone! so am worried about the flash light!! as you are using this fone please tell me about the camera images of this fone!! is it good without a flsh light? how did you experience it and how about dark atmosphere fotoes? hw it comes very nice with out a flash light? please advise needful. i love to buy this fone but i am very tensed when i think about flash light!!!please help me.
I solved my problem of hanging apps is solved by formatting sd card.but battery drain still consistent with 4.3
Also Sony should enable move to sd card option similar to Xperia c.
Good phone though

Using this phone for about 4 months now... Used to get the 'sleep of death' not getting it anymore though... Battery lasts up to a day with STAMINA mode on with medium usage. Still on ICS 2nd update. The cons.. Phone is so thin... It's flimsy.. My screen broke down the middle.. Rendered the screen unusable... Got it fixed and now works like a charm.. Still be real careful with it...
