Hi there! I' althea from philippines and i upgraded from xperia z to this monster phablet xperia z ultra. I really love this gadget super thin and great display. Super blazing fast cpu and wonderful gpu. I really enjoy having this phone Because of its very premium and solid built. despite of lack of flash for the camera purposes, cause it is still manage to capture decent image and video. Long Live SONY!.....
Its a phone, not a camera.
Most of the comments are talking about useless phone due to no flash. Kindergarten logic is useless camera with no flash, if this thing can make a call (voice or data call) then it is not a useless phone, it is a working phone.
Be smart with your comments ppl.
rahul, 16 Aug 2013Its too expensive it shoud be priced as much as note 2 and it doesnt have flashPremium phones are expensive. You want a cut-rate phone, stick with Samsung. You've got to pay for quality.
I like it so much but I saw so many comments that it has no flash then I just want to know that is it fully waterproof coz I have a bad habit like I can't carry my phone safely sometimes it falls under water or on the floor so that is my concern about it.

Sony why you have not given LED flash is just waste to buy this mobile....
shbi, 16 Aug 2013samsung paid troller!!!! truly liar....just get out from here, nobody want a phone made from p... moreIf I'm lying, I wouldn't have written so much in such detail. There's a lot to like about the Z Ultra such as the screen size and resolution, build quality and materials, the processor speed and its IP58 certification but for me, call quality and battery life are equally important. Maybe we got the first batch which wasn't up to scratch but I would definitely buy the next generation of this phone if these areas are improved.
Anonymous, 15 Aug 2013You are sure about that, i ask that and i read no single battery usage with those phone, only ... moreI don't get the animosity from some of the commenters here. I'm merely stating my first hand experience with this phone hoping to let potential buyers make an informed decision. Like I said, I wanted to like this phone and it does have some nice features but it's not a polished product which one expects from a flagship phone.
Bigger screened Z with a camera not good enough. Fastest speed and response but UI needs to be improved. Earpiece is loud when it has clear setting. Battery lasts all day long. 8 out of 10.
Z Ultra is the best slim phone is sony but aswe know that there is no flash and paying for this as per my opinion it is not a worth but phone outlook is extrordinary and no smart phone will match this ............
Where is battery test ... blease gsmarena .. do battery test for xperia z ultra
Anonymous, 15 Aug 2013I bought two of these when it first came out in Hong Kong at the beginning of Aug - a white on... moresamsung paid troller!!!! truly liar....just get out from here, nobody want a phone made from plastic bottles..
patrick , 15 Aug 2013its a useless cell unless there will be a flash lol, suddenly a smartphone is a torchlihgt
Some things Sony must do to gain market share.
Sony is providing best hardware with great innovations like waterproofing, pencil support, Triluminos Display, etc. Still it must move fast in innovating. For example, Sony must try to make use of Sensors like Samsung. Samsung is slightly overusing them but atleast features like Smart Stay and Air Gestures must be present in Sony. I dont say to blind copy Samsung but Sony must provide it adding its own innovation or ease of use. And Sony must do it fast inventing some thing or other. For example, Sony must improve in Loudspeaker Sound, Camera, HD Secondary Camera, More internal storage, Sensors, etc.
Sony UI is great but still not as great as Samsung. It must have more customisation options like folders in app drawer, smart stay, multi screen, etc.
If Sony comes in innovating things faster than others, no one can stop Sony.
