I've had this super phone for the last 4 months and must say I'm quite happy with it throughout. There is room for improvement,of course, but the things I'd improve have never prevented me from enjoying this masterpiece. State-of-the-art design, extremely thin,waterproof, fast processor, excellent screen with enough definition for most purposes, great brightness and contrast in normal conditions, absolutely no problem holding it despite its highly criticised 6.4 inches (fits most of my pockets comfortably enough), and works great with pencils, stylus pens, and/or the dedicated Sony E22 stylus pen (though probably a simple pencil it works best). My friends do certainly mock my "smaller version of a Bravia TV", but to be honest, that's the aspect I seem to enjoy the most: its wonderful screen! What would I improve? Probably better viewing angles and more contrast in situations where there's considerable sunlight. Speaker quality leaves much to be desired with both phone calls and listening to music. The screen resists all scratches, true, but the original Sony protective foil it's covered with from out of the box scratches veeeery easily (no warning from the company on this, though), and if you decide to replace it, you'll hate to discover the Sony logo comes right off with it, rather than being printed on the glass itself! Sony, what were you thinking? We fans like seeing the Sony logo printed on our Xperia phones! As to the camera, it's nothing to write home about, but gets decent pictures even in low light thanks to its sensor. No flash, no, but have yet to run into a situation where I would actually need one. So no complaints on this side. Maybe an upgrade for the camera and an in-built flash unit would ultimately satisfy a wider audience. All in all, I think Sony has provided us, mainly visual individuals who like a big HD screen, with a nice piece of technology to enjoy watching videos and films, surf the net, read PDF files, and play games, but that would rather carry a phone-sized tablet around instead of an 8 or 10 inch full-blown tablet. This from a phablet segment fan's perspective.
Worst phone I have ever used till date. My pointwise review is as under:
1. Extremely poor picture quality in low light for lack of flash
2. Extremely meak voice output from speakers
3. USB cover gets broken of all phones very early and charge for this tiny useless hindrance causing cover is Rs. 800/- at Sony Service Stations
4. Keeps handing even if you do not install single app from playstore
5. I have been facing voice distortion in earphone and voice breaking since beginning but there is no solution to it with the service centre even. They keep befooling you to keep waiting for further updates.
6. Extremely pathetic post sale service. Service Centre persons shall not even take your phone for checking the faults. There main concern is to find faults with the customer and mobile service provider and return the handset immediately.
I shall never get trapped for Sony brand name!

Its very good phone in this price range......don't miss this offer...10/10
I bought it yesterday,......As per my personal experience it is massive in terms of size as well as performance.....
it cost me (13990) from FLIPCART
I wanted phone as well as phablet...so i bought this
-Ultra is very fast
-Battery is very good(12-13 hour screen ontime)
-Multitasking is very gud and handle many apps at a time with no lag or heating issue
-In terms of processor (9/10)
-HANDLE'S high graphic games as well
-Runs on 5.0
but the thing which dissapointing me is
It takes almost 2-3 hours to fully charge.otherwise it is monster in terms of performance and gives straight compitition to high end smart phones
i see sony trolls have started up voting such old useless device,
today it has reached 8.099-1839
i would see more next week.
lakshay, 03 Jul 2015i am thinking to buy this phone. can anyone tell me how is it performing who has used it for a... moremy dear friend
i have this phone from release date
my phone stole in 4 months and i bought an other one
yes the screen goes dead and dont turn on but it fixed after update
right now there is lollipop release for it and there is no such issue
the only thing is poor camera
and the most point is if u get use to using this big screen u wont use any more cellphone , easy web browsing and enjoyable screen for movie or chat , u gonna have lot of space for what u are doing , im waiting for another big screen phone to switch my device
if u are fan of using a lot of space when u are working with handset this gonna perfectly work for u
i hope i answered u comment well
This phone is a perfect example of a good smartphone. I have been using this phone for 1 year. There is no hanging and heating issues. Only problem is that xperia z ultra doesn't have a cam flash and it is huge suzed. So it can't be put inside the pant pocket.
Anonymous, 03 Jul 2015Waste of money...not even worth for 14 thousand(present rate in flipkart) Reasons 1.No flash... moreOnly point 1 and 4 make sense.Remaining (especially 8) is just BS by some B Hurt Sony hater.
Anonymous, 03 Jul 2015Waste of money...not even worth for 14 thousand(present rate in flipkart) Reasons 1.No flash... morePictures are brilliant in daylight . they are better than samsung 13mp camera bcoz of Eximor. There are no heating issues with 5.02. Only drawback is no flash and slightly big to handle. But you can read books, see maps have gr8 view of vdo/cam. read mail, chat on whatsapp and screen mirror is instant. Good OTG. For 13990 it is a steal. Resale value is good . see olx
Waste of money...not even worth for 14 thousand(present rate in flipkart)
