The Sony Xperia Z Ultra 4G LTE marks Sony’s entry into the phablet market, a market that had previously been dominated by the Samsung Galaxy Note series. This shows the company’s confidence in itself by going into unfamiliar territories. This phablet comes with a fast 2.2GHz quad core Krait 4000 processor that does a good job together with the Adreno 330 GPU. When it comes to storage, the Z Ultra boasts 2GB of RAM and 16GB internal storage capacity. Should this not be enough, you can expand it by up to 64GB thanks to the dedicated microSD card slot. The Sony Xperia Z Ultra 4G LTE is also dust and waterproof, capable of staying unharmed under 1.5 meters of water for 30 minutes thanks to its IP58 certification. However, you need to make sure that the flaps on the ports are well secured before you expose the device to any liquids.
What is the screen resolution ?
The display that comes with the Sony Xperia Z Ultra 4G LTE is a 6.4 inch LCD touchscreen made using IPS technology. It is a multi-touch screen that is capable of accepting inputs from up to 10 fingers simultaneously. This screen displays media with a resolution of 1080 by 1920 pixels, which means that you will be able to fit about 344 pixels on every inch of the screen. This screen is obviously quite large, hence it might be a bit difficult for users with smaller hands. However, if you like phablets because of their large screen, then you will enjoy using this one.
What is the battery life ?
When it comes to battery performance, the Sony Xperia Z Ultra 4G LTE comes with a non-removable lithium ion battery with a rating of 3,050 mAh. This battery delivers impressively despite the high hardware capabilities in the phone. Sony has somehow managed to squeeze in a good battery despite the thin 6.5mm body. When you also consider the massive screen that has to be powered, you will agree that the battery does a good job.
How long does its battery last?
The duration between charges will depend on what you do with the phone, but the Sony Xperia Z Ultra 4G LTE still delivers impeccably. It should give up to 8 hours and 45 minutes of video playback, about 24 hours of 3G talk time and about 5 hours and 30 minutes of web browsing.
What is the sound and video quality ?
This phablet delivers loud and clear sound output from the built-in speakerphone. However, if you want the best quality of music, you are better off using the included earphones. When it comes to video recording, you can make fairly decent 1080p videos with the primary 8MP camera at 30 frames per second. The secondary camera is a bit disappointing with only 2MP, but it can also record 1080p videos at 30frames per second.
Conclusion: Should I buy it ?
The Sony Xperia Z Ultra 4G LTE is a bit pricey for people just looking for a phablet that has an above average screen and decent features. However, if you are looking for a larger screen that comes with a powerful processor, then this is the device to go for. The water-resistance is another plus for the device.
