Sony Xperia Z Ultra: At First Glance
This 'phablet' from Sony is a real multimedia monster: the big screen of 6.4 inches is an excellent size to enjoy games, movies and other videos. Web browsing is also a lot easier with such screen. Thanks to powerful processor, you will never have to worry that the Xperia Z Ultra will let you down. The 'normal' Sony Xperia Z was already a pretty impressive smartphone, but the Xperia Z Ultra goes one step further. Thus, the device features a huge 6.44-inch screen with a Full HD resolution of 1080x1920 pixels. That equates to 344 pixels per inch: combined with the Triluminos display (also found in Bravia TVs), images are not only very sharp but also very colourful. Despite its large screen, the Sony Xperia Z Ultra is still very thin, only 6.5 millimetres. The device weighs only 212 grams and thus the Ultra Z in theory remains very portable. The other specifications of the Sony Xperia Z Ultra are equally impressive. The Ultra Z is one of the first smartphones with the new fast Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. This provides a clock speed of 2.2 GHz accompanied by 2GB of RAM for unprecedented performance, which makes this phone more than powerful enough to ensure that everything runs smoothly.

You can use this smartphone up to one meter depth and leave it half an hour in water. A sturdy, tough, extremely powerful smartphone - what more could you want?
