I'd like to call it Phablet for big hands and big pockets. Considering Xperia Z Ultra's size for my hand is like Galaxy Note II for my wife's hand. Or we should make a new terminology for it? Something likee... ummm... Tablone? :D
natea, 31 Aug 2013im own this phablet and really love it,,so beautiful and fast..but im encountered deflect prob... moreAndroid's phone always will drain very faster than IOS , my s4 always drain very faster when browser and gaming, my Z ultra also have this problems but when I active Stamina Mode, it can last 1day half! It is good because it's only packing 3050mAH battery for 6.44' screen, powerful processor ,I guess I need to 1day 1 charge before purchase, but I feel good for my normal use.
S4 battery life is super good for my normal use, it can last 2days,but I got overheating problems.......
But anyway, APPLE ,SONY,SAMSUNG ,HTC NOKIA's product is best for me! Apple -Stable with A5,6,7 chipset
Sony-design with OmiBalance unique design
Samsung -high-technology with various type of SMART such as smart pause, air views,smart rotation and so-on.
Htc -entertainment with boomsound (Beat Audio )
Nokia -pro camera with 41mp camera

I guess bravo to Sony then... Cause I am personally wanting to buy it as a tablet.
If you call this one a smartphone and not a tab then you must really have a very big pocket to fit it in dont you think?

A phablet like Gal Note II, to me is because we can use it one handed (though a bit difficult). When you need both hands to use, then I call it a tablet.
im own this phablet and really love it,,so beautiful and fast..but im encountered deflect problems too..but its okay now after i do software update,,the critical problems was the battery lives...drains so fast than my old iphone 4 or my ipad 3,,

However, it will and in fact it already is seriously threatening the 7" tablet market. I am myself thinking if buying it as a tablet.
I love this phone. I took it few days ago. Performance is very good,and i like the design too. Size is ok for me because i took it to use as phone and tablet. But i am waiting for sbh52. i know it's lack of flash but if u use it in day time it'll give you nice pictures. there's no lag on this phone and the only problem i am facing is black out screen when taking a call. Otherwise that i can give this 10 out of 10 and i love it.

It's appropriate to call it a tab, it's an excellent tab. The proof, try to put it into your pocket, then u will know it's a tab not a smartphone.
Instead of wasting all this energy and time for the LCD, Sony could have used Super AMOLED instead, which not only consumes less battery but also reduced the device weight.
plz sony realese a featre phone.with 5 mp cmera,512 mhz cpu with 192 mb ram n with document viewer.plz plz plz.
Phone which costs around 45k(India) doesn't have flash light so funny...
I bought it
N it's awesome
N the attention you get, omg it has to be experienced to believe it
Looks very much like a big piece of rectangular slab with sharp corners. Just waaaaayyy tooooooo ugly!
I like da Ultra a lot, but I'm not ready to own one if der haven't put a flashlight on in. I think we should all demand 4 it, coz dis 4ne have it all, but no flash nd Sony must put dat 13MP camera. I guess I will have to wait until der upgrade it with all dat. But Sony Xperia Z Ultra it one of the best Phones on earth @ this moment.
Z ultra is not having the features as compared to its price and even 10 k phone is been provided by the led flash but thumbs down for z ultra ie not having led flash.its not phone it is a tab....hahaha.....so guys not even think of taking this phone .....sorry Sony
