Regardless of a larger screen, Sony has done absolutely prodigious in designing this smartphone. It is reedy and well-lit. It has also got an IP-58 certification which means it is dust and water resistant over 1 meter and 30 minutes.



The screen display on the Xperia Z ultra is Ultra-outstanding. It is a 6.4 inch display with a resolution of 1080 * 1920 which makes up a pixel density of 341ppi, slightly lesser than what we have seen in a Full HD five inch smartphones. With a Tri-luminous display and an X-reality Bravia engine from Sony, the screen is absurdly bright, the contrast is outstanding and the clarity is terrific as seen in Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

There will be no lag and dropped frame rates. Watching Full-HD movies are also a great experience in Xperia Z ultra. So, if you are a multimedia person and a gamer this phone fits for you.



This is a disappointing factor of this smartphone. It only has an 8MP rear camera without LED flash. It has a 2MP Front facing camera. So, Xperia Z ultra is not a smartphone for a camera enthusiastic


It runs on Android 4.2.2 jelly bean. The upgrade for Kitkat 4.4 is planned from Sony but official announcement is yet to come.
