  1. If you thought Samsung’s Galaxy Note II packed a large screen, wait until you see Sony’s latest creation. The Xperia Z Ultra will ship with a 6.4-inch, 1080p display that’s coming dangerously close to tablet territory...

    That is a bit too far. That is a tablet, not a phablet.

    Is it actually possible to hold this up to your ear to make calls?

    Wow, using a normal pencil... nice. And seems they saw from the same perspective as ours: too big to be comfortably hold during a phone call; their approach: use the handset, put it in your pocket. It is appealing to me, right now I'm using a "standard" cell phone (NOKIA X2) and have no tablet, and it is just the right mixture of both to buy in the upcoming months -I wasn't considering a Samsung even before watching this, nothing against, but they already have enough customers.

    It is quite huge but do like the headset one would get with the phone. The headset also has a headphone jack allowing users to listen to music and not need to plug in the headphones in the device. It works with
    Sony's new watch too.
    Using it with the watch and headset, one wouldn't need to operate the phone for most part. Just need to find a pocket large enough to hold it though =)

    It looks more like a big screen TV to me.

    You'd need very large reinforced pockets just to tote this thing about. It would probably be easier to make a call from the nearest call box.

    The moral of the Video is: You can't frolic in the pool with your girlfriend without the Xperia Z ultra. :p
  9. Galaxy S3 /S4 is the absolute maximum size that my pockets tolerate
