Sony will release the mini version of honami with 4.3" HD triluminous display and with same snapdragon 800 soc.(according to rumours) and will be water and dust resistant.
no led flash so not good one by sony ...........wait for other.......one which complete have no drawbacks....
This thing is an absolute animal. I just hope that tft is a much better performer than the one in the Z
I do think sony intended this to compete with 7inch tablets with phone capability like the asus fonepad, galaxy tab etc... that is why like most 7inch tablets, this does not have led flash.It is close enough to be a 7inch tablet.But I agree that it would be nice if it had one but it is no deal breaker to me. I don't use the led flash on My Xperia Z most of the time while taking pictures. I don't take a lot of flash pictures on my asus 7 inch tablet either. :-)
sony can u pls tell me why der is no led flash at d back ,,,i just dont know wat u r tryin to do ,,hope u wont came out with a differen model with led ,,i wont like it ,,,pls if u do something ,,do it well..
for now think abt that,,,before u bring it out..
the Z Ultra is a awesome device, BUT still too BIG for me and not my style for carrying a big phone :(.. so i will skip it for the Honami :).. XD Go Sony Go!
mas39, 13 Jul 2013Flash - I cannot remember the last time I used a flash on one of my smartphones, I do find it ... moreI need a flash because I take pictures on jobsits with many times very low light. I need to clearly see products and serial numbers plus other details. My phone, like most people, is my only camera, if I had a dedicated camera, I'd never have it with me when I need it. I'm constantly using flash and glad to have it. Too bad Sony omitted a flash for the Z Ultra, otherwise I'd buy it, it's a beautiful phone and the size I'm looking for.
Daniel, 12 Jul 2013Wow, Very Nice Phone but I think the Camera should be upgraded like that of Nokia Lumia 1020. ... moreYes you are correct. It must be at least within the current trend which is 13MP. But don't be mistaken with the high pixel count of the camera. The PIXEL COUNT denotes the size of the IMAGE but it doesn't imply that the IMAGE is brilliant, clear, accurate or whatsoever. The advantage maybe is that if you expand the image it will not be pixelated and blurred that's all. The QUALITY of an image maybe defined by the SENSOR and the IMAGE processor a company is using. The PIXEL count is just an EXTRA..... Again I am also unhappy like you with the 8MP of Xperia Ultra 'coz it is out of trend currently in the market.
Look, people are eluded by the pixel count of LUMIA's. I would rather advice you to check the following for the upcomming Nokia's flagship Lumia 1020:
1) Thickness- 10.4mm > 6.5mm for Xperia ZU (a littles less than double the thickness of ZU)
2) 332ppi < 342ppi for Xperia ZU (highest for Phablet category).
3) 100Mbps DL < 150Mbps for Xperia ZU (Downloading speed)
4) 41MP Camera > 8MP for Xperia ZU (back to my above comments)
5) firstname.lastname@example.orgGHz Processor < email@example.comGHz for Xperia ZU (imagine the processing speed)
6) Outdated Adreno 225 Graphics < Adreno 330 for Xperia ZU (Let say for Gaming its OK for Nokia coz their games are not heavy as Play Stations games)
7) Battery 2000mAh< 3000mAh (but I do agree that still small for a Phablet category)
Flash - I cannot remember the last time I used a flash on one of my smartphones, I do find it strange when people moan that there is no flash. Even in low light conditions it is better to use no flash, because with the flash on I find that pictures do not look natural. Removable battery - never had to remove mine, especially on my nokia n900 which I have had for 4 years, so yet again why do people moan about it. Come on, I would like to know everybody's strange reasons for using a flash or having a removal battery. Over to you.

Yes you are correct if you use their bluetooth/non-bluetooth headsets. But if merely on its loudspeaker, you are absolutely incorrect. Loudspeaker only use a high frequency range speaker (tweeter)but not using a mig-range (low frequency) and sub-woofer (very low frequency) speakers. That makes Sony Phones a canny sound.... I still remember when Nokia phones dominated the mobile phone industry, nokia phones have canny/irritating loudspeaker. At that time, Sony has the best sound. But now Sony loudspeaker is the worst. Try samsung mobiles it even vibrates due to its loudspeaker with powerfull bass... Perhaps, Sony will resolve this issue if really they want to dominate... Furthermore, bezels should be reduced... I like the Xperia ZL. The screen almost exactly fitted in the facade. Please do it in Honami......
Great looking model. Will sell well because of this. But no flash may affect sales.
Jeanandroidfan, 12 Jul 2013Lol, Nokia Lumia??!!with the most useless OS, and who told you that xperia zu will cost that, ... moreLol since when nokia 1100 is lumia series, the highest lumia phone currently is lumia 1020. FYI nokia 1100 is more advanced than any lumia smartphones!
