My first review on the smartphones category is the Sony Xperia Z Ultra. I’m a proud owner and very satisfied with it. Since I have been with T-Mobile for 4 years and wanted to continue the service with them without the hassle free looking elsewhere. Back then I was bind into a contract and my contract was about to end soon. I was in a search of a new phone and T-Mobile has a great program purchasing a lineup of fast, affordable 4G smartphones – all for zero down with interest-free financing!
This was about 1 year ago. I came in to an Authorize T-Mobile store in search of my new android smartphone, that being said I’m pushing aside the iPhone for now . Sorry, Apple fan boys, but I will review the iPhone on my next segment. Let’s continue on my journey with a search for my next Android smartphone. I was introduce to various Samsung Galaxy S4, Galaxy Note II and the Nokia Windows phone. I was leaning towards the Samsung Galaxy Note II due to the humongous screen display. I’m a screen display nut powered with android. Then hold in behold I was introduce to the Sony Xperia Z Ultra with much anticipated rave according to the T-Mobile sales agent.
I was holding the Sony in palm of my hands and what struck me the most is the craftsmanship of the design. I really enjoy how it feels the square design in which my previous phone was the Samsung Galaxy S3. When it comes to changes, I look for the revamp of the design. The design from S3 to S4 is not that much different in the design. So I was hooked with this Sony thing. Then I was comparing side by side from the Sony to the Note II while the T-Mobile sales agent explaining about the 2 products.
The Note II advantage for me was, again the humongous screen display! But nothing compare to the technology of the Sony behind the chassis. Then glance to the Nokia Windows phone just to give it a 2nd gaze, it looks good and feels great. But the big drawback for me was the Windows apps market at the time was not appealing and limited. The icing on the cake on the Sony, Get this; it is waterproof ! and this was the only smartphone in the market has this technology in place.
I proudly selected the Sony Xperia Z Ultra including other accessories such as a phone cover and screen display protector a must have for this beautiful phone. Behind the screen display technology – The Xperia Z Ultra boasts a 6.4-inch TFT display of 1920 x 1080 resolution (also known as 1080p or Full HD), with a pixel density of 342 pixels per inch. These specs should ensure wonderfully crisp images, though there are other devices that boast higher pixel densities – Sony’s own 5-inch Xperia Z features a 441 ppi density, while the 4.7-inch HTC One leads the race with a density of 469 ppi.
Sony meant adopting display technologies originally created for TV displays, such as the Bravia engine, and now Triluminos and X-Reality. Explain in lame terms on Triluminos technology – enables LCD TFT displays to show a wider range of colors, and thus to display images that are richer and more vivid. According to MIT Technology Review, a Triluminos display boasts a color gamut that is 50 percent larger than that of a conventional LCD panel. Let’s stop here and I will get into more of the specifications on my next segment. Please, leave a comment and recommendations. Thank you
