Rhinozr, 06 Aug 2013Xperia z is waaaaay better than this shit......it doesnt even have an LED flash!?!?!!!!!,,,,,,... moreI feel the same frustration dude. I understand you.
But I've just came up with this idea: get a mini LED torch to attach to your keychain holder and, done :D There we have the LED torch absent in the XZU, at least for torch purposes n.n Cause for pictures, it's not that need. HDR Mode works much better than using flash to improve low light pictures. Try it!
I'm 90% sure I'm getting the XZU now after viewing reviews and videos of its undoubted powerful performance. But as this will be in a couple of months yet, let's see what others have to offer. Lenovo has the K900 and a K910 is in the works, the K900 is very affective too, what a pity Lenovo is too slow to release it in more countries, mine, Peru, will get it, who knows, but it's got a big possibility, with the XZU being confirmed for my country soon n.n
Xperia z is waaaaay better than this shit......it doesnt even have an LED flash!?!?!!!!!,,,,,,.sony just couldnt add this small LED flash somehwere in the back,,,,whyyyyyyyyy idiots!!!! Your xperia z was awsome,,,and now you make a z ultra that is way worse.....how can i shoot pictures in the dark,,,,how can i walk up dark stairs,,,how can i search for something in a dark room.........(-_-) just add the freakin led flash sony and i will buy it,,,,and millions others will buy it,,,,,,or else i will just buy an s4 active or stick with my xperia z
Great specs but design is not that much good, xperia z ultra failed to satisfy the people..!
To solve this camera issue, they should have made a separate flash on the handheld, answering the phone piece. Where you can hold up the light source.

Unfortunately the Z series phones look good only in the pictures. I saw in the mall, it does not have any WOW factor.
nageeb, 06 Aug 2013Im in love of this device wanna buy it but does the flash light affect the low light images ma... moreHey Nageeb,
Unfortunately it does. The camera is the only sore point on the phone. Noise levels are high and low light photography is poor. Hopefully this will be sorted out in future updates. Sony has announced a new update (build 471) already and will release a major update (with the X-Reality engine) when the phone releases globally.
Eisley, 05 Aug 2013Can some good XZU user tell us about ram on this device? How much free ram after a reboot when... moreHey Eisley,
I can't seem to find the ROM stats! If i find out how, I will let you know.
WDWMrWomble, 06 Aug 2013How on earth have you bought this phone, its not been released anywhere yetHey Womble, it is available in India and "a few select Asian markets" (quoted from the Sony website).
It was available in India from 1 week ago
So far, after using it in a day, I am a satisfied customer. It is not a "phablet" in my opinion, but it is a pocketable mini tablet with phone functionality. The size difference to my Kindle Fire HD is so minimal that the screen size of XZ Ultra is 81 percent that of a 7 inch tablet (based on screen area computation). Plus i can comfortably put this mini tablet to my trouser pocket with ease- it fits! The build quality is out of this world, and I won't go back to Galaxy notes anymore; only except if Samsung will change their designs and build. I am still a Samsung fan (i have a galaxy s4 and note 10.1 but sold my note 2 already). Now i am definitely leaning towards Sony.
I still like my BEST PHONE - Xperia Z, really Experience The Best Of Sony In Smartphone. But I wonder why don't you all guys wait for Honami i1, I assure that i1 is better than Z Ultra, even Z also. Nevermind, I won't change my Xperia Z, it is my life.
all u smart people out there should know it by now that this phone actually a phablet(nah pretty much tablet) i mean look.let me give genius some example. .xperia z zr flash included.htc one ,mini,max flash included.galaxy s4,mini other variant i can't remember it al but i think one of them name i don't know s4 aduseranger.but the bottom line is this, sony probably consider this piece of technology a tablet rather than a phone due to u know for instance, xperia tablet z have know flash first nexus 7 have 1.2 megapixel(rofl)XD galaxy tab 3 well samsung doesn't put much efford in camera as its name suggested around 3 megapixel(lol).and also one of the most important oem,apple again doesn't put much effort in tablet camera ipad 4 5mp while iphone have 8mp.
Kuldeep, 06 Aug 2013What about battery of sony Z ultra???
Can anyone tell me???
It is too early to say, since i have only had it for a day now. First day has given me about 3/4th of a day. But with Stamina mode, I have seen visible improvement (a little more than a full day)
Huh itz a big joke NO flash.....dont go with price is lyk a red chilly....you should go for samsung''''
I am very impressed with Sony solution to tackle the 6"+ phablet market. The only downside for me is the lack of Flash. I would really replaced my iPad with this device if it can at least offer tough battery performance on par with 12 hours light work of Galaxy Mega 6".
Thank you for the article, gsmarena :)
