I bought two of these when it first came out in Hong Kong at the beginning of Aug - a white one for my wife and a black one for myself. Currently, we both use Note IIs. Having used the Z Ultra for a day, we were thoroughly disappointed with the product. Mine lasted 10 hours and my wife's 8 hours before the battery died after moderate use - making just a few phone calls, browsing the web for a short while and playing a few games. It has a smaller battery than the Note II (3050 mAh versus 3100 mAh) but powers a bigger screen and faster processor so it's to be expected but it's still disappointing that they couldn't design it to last a day. Also, the call volume is extremely low and is just bearable in quiet environments. In public places, it's extremely difficult to hold a phone conversation. Furthermore, if you use the provided earphones, you hear a lot of interference which makes the experience even worse. In addition, it was difficult to insert and remove the SIM card due to the badly designed SIM tray; when I installed Opera Classic browser, I couldn't increase the size of the fonts in the address and menu bars making typing web addresses difficult; the largest size of the system fonts is still not very big; zooming in and panning were buggy; the phone was constantly hot even in standby mode and there's less features than the Note II e.g. when holding the phone up to your ear, the display doesn't turn off. I really wanted to like the Z Ultra but the battery life and the basic feature of using a phone as a phone were deal breakers. Fortunately, I managed to get a refund on both handsets the next day after explaining these deficiencies to the store manager.
Galaxy S4 - please google it, extreme overheating, phones exploding, not booting up at all, taking 5 hours to download updates, not downloading apps at all, and the samsung trolls say its better than this Z Ultra, you must be joking, this phones hammers the GS4 into the ground, there is no comparison.
I have had the Ultra for a week now and love it.It hits that sweet spot of a phone with tablet size screen while being 6.5mm thin. If you have small hands then avoid simple.The speed is swift pi benchmark 105 antutu 32700 and futuremark score which beat the nvidia sheild nuff said.

Slim, 13 Aug 2013I noticed that most of the ppl posting comments here are Samsung faithfuls rather than Sony's.... moreTrue.
This is the PERFECT all in one combination. And it's totally worth its price.
No other smartphone or tablet (all of them very good) gets as close to the maximum of satisfaction in each aspect as this superb AIO (based in lots of reviews, knowledge and fair judgement) n.n
Waiting to get mine, in purple!!!!!!!! ^-^
Please haters, be reasonable for once. This is a extremely beautiful device! You hate it, but have to admit it!
I want to buy this phone. so i want to the below details about the phone from the persones own this already.
- Is there any Lag in the screen navigation.
- how is the picture quality.
- how is the speed of the browsing
- how is the overall speed of the phone (opening apps, games)
- how is the multitasking works
I am been using zu for a week now and it's quit a nice device. Camera is excellent even in low light capture, but there is no flash. The only thing I felt bad was its huge size rest is everything fantastic about this monster. It makes a bit difficult for one hand operation but for reading ebooks, emails, Facebook, gaming and movies this phone is fantastic. I am also using z which is a good phone but not as bright in contrast as xperia ultra. If you are looking for more brightness in the picture quality then you must go for this bit you are a medium hand size like me and don't like two hand operation. Then perhaps this phone is not for u
We r here 2 c reviews about the ZU not the s4 nor the HTC one, and neither is the note II,.I want 2 c how good or bad the ZU is for those who've bought already,..not opinions from Samsung fans or HTC fans,..pls note that this column falls under the ZU,..the reviews about the ZU is very important for me cos I'm planning 2 get 1,..so pls posts accurately,..
