I had a chance to play with the Sony Xperia Z Ultra last Thursday at a blogger event. I would say it is the best Phablet out there in the market now. It has one of the biggest screen with 6.44″ Full HD screen, fastest processor, the Snapdragon 800 processor and is the thinnest measuring at 6.5mm. It is also waterproof and dust resistant (IP55/IP58).
The only downside to the Xperia Z Ultra is the camera suck very badly especially under low light.
I am interested to see how the rumoured HTC One Max will compare to this. And also, Samsung Galaxy Note 3 launch is also around the corner.
