Sony launched its large screen Xperia Z Ultra in
June with much fanfare. The highlight of the
phone is its big 6.4-inch full-HD display, the
biggest yet on a smartphone from Sony.
However, it's that very the display that looks set
to give Sony some headaches.
Xperia Blog has consolidated several reports of
Sony Xperia Z Ultra owners complaining about
issues with the display. Most of the problems
seem to happen when trying to unlock the
phone, with the display just refusing to switch
on. A video notes that the backlight switches on
as well, and one can hear the underlying OS
sounds as you tap on the screen - it's just the
display that stays off.
A user at XDA forum notes similar experience
when he tried to press the power button of his
Xperia Z Ultra. The backlight turned on but the
screen remained completely blank. He states
that the Android runs fine underneath and
when pressing back, home, app or even volume
control buttons the device gives audio feedback.
However the display remains blank and the
device is unusable. He also notes that the
screen turned on only after pressing the power
key anywhere between 5 and 150 times,
indicating the random nature of the problem.
Xperiablog notes that several other users on XDA
developers forum and YouTube have voiced
their complaints regarding the phone's display.
The report also notes that some display show
green lines when an attempt is made to unlock
the device. There is no official comment from
Sony on the issue till now.

Dr.Sharath, 22 Aug 2013hi, me new to this forum.help me out in this problem. i had note2. was happy about the perfo... moreUnless u have a solid reason to upgrade just keep using your current note 2 because in my honest opinion all these phones are basically the same. But if u must, try a different brand and os, say, iphone 5.

Dr.Sharath, 22 Aug 2013hi,
me new to this forum.help me out in this problem.
i had note2. was happy about the perfo... moreWell you need to set some parameters while asking such a question otherwise I am afraid no one would be able to answer to your question. To explain that further you need to tell what things you prefer, which ones you simply can't compromise and which are the ones you can do without our with less e.g. Camera, display, viewing angles, cpu, GPU, size, weight, battery time, connectivity, audio quality, toughness, build quality, ringer quality, OS specific functionalities (since you've shirt listed multi platforms) etc. Etc. Etc.
If you have no or little idea of what I am taking about then you need to do your homework first otherwise no help would really materialize. Hope this helps :-)
Xperia Z Ultra is a pure luxury, the current best tablet phone but its battery is permanently fixed and is non-replaceable/non-repairable.
