Sony Xperia Z Ultra
The Sony Xperia Z Ultra is the first phablet the Japanese company has released. A gargantuan 6.4-inch display and powerful Snapdragon 800 processor headline a list of top-end specifications with 2 GB of RAM, in a body that’s very large, but also slim. The Xperia Ultra Z also features 16 GB of internal storage and expandable via microSD. Last but not least, the Z Ultra packs an 8 MP rear-camera.
Vast and quality screen with pen/pencil input.
Thinnest waterproof design.
Record fast chipset.
Larger than other 6-inchers.
Uncomfortable to hold and carry.
Camera lacks flash, could be better quality.
Relatively weak and hollow earpiece sound.

Ultimately I can’t recommend this phone over Samsung’s Galaxy Note range, especially with the Galaxy Note III on the horizon, because it lacks an overall polish that you need from a large, note-taking-cum-multimedia device. In some respects the Sony Xperia Z Ultra is wonderful, but it’s the critical areas where it falls behind the mark.70

The Sony Xperia Z Ultra is a nicely made device but doesn't represent good value for money. The phablet is extremely unwieldy and doesn't have a great camera. Sony would have been better off making this a 7in tablet rather than a 6.4in phone. Our recommended phablet remains the Samsung Galaxy Note 3.70
