Why Sony, why?
03 Aug 2013 By Mikhil Mistry On flipkart.com

Trust me guys, I never wrote reviews on Flipkart ever, but this one really deserves it.nFirst of, this phone has a 1080p screen with Sony's Triluminos and OptiContrast display (they normally use it in their LED Televisions), also Adreno 330 (stock frequency as 320) with Snapdragon series 800 chipset which packs 4 Krait cores at clocked 2.2 GHz each. Only these specs are enough to justify that this phablet is nothing but a Multimedia Package. Needless to say, your Blu Ray movies, 3D games and overall feel of the GUI will be like smooth as butter.nnI only wonder WHY in the World, WHY did Sony not even bother to add an extra speaker to the phone? It has a monaural sound (only one speaker). And I agree that the camera does not require a flash, still an LED flash would have been a needful addition. With so much money in, you can't let yourself compromise on anything. Hats off to the engineers at Sony for creating a literal benchmark for Android phones (at least for this year), but I bet they must have thought about this. Overall, a good phone. But people giving importance to battery life, external audio and flash, beware.

Great Phone
22 Dec 2014 By Saurav Kumar On flipkart.com

Yes you read that right PHONE. I was fully aware what I was going to buy and use as my daily driver. Currently on 4.4.2 kitkat.nnNow let's get on with the review: nnI (anyone) would give 5 stars for its build quality and premium feel. Glass and metal just feels awsome(don't forget to put a screen protector on it).nnBattery life is nothing extraordinary, but it will easily last one day.(get the magnetic charger cable to protect the water proof flap from wear and tear).nnThe major criteia on which the selection of my smartphone depends upon is PERFORMANCE and then PRICE then comes other things like build quality, screen quality,manufacturer reputation, battery life etc.nI'm not a big fan of smartphone cameras.Only smartphones whch have good cameras are either the expensive flagships or or other phones which lack in other important departments. Coming to the point, I must say I wasn't amused with the quality of the camera but it certainly produces decent photographs in good lighting conditions and also do some nice indoor pictures.I do not miss the flash from my previous phone. I used it's flash for two major reasons:nnAs a torchnnAnd for capturing images of a notebook or a document in below sufficient indoor lighting conditions. nnThe z ultrahas some good low light features. So now I do not reqiure a flash at all and.the photos come out decent too.nnThough video capture is a bit noisy.nnComing to the SCREEN quality:nnGnRnEnAnTn!n!nYes, it's that good. Very accurate colours and very good(rather excellent)white levels Screen is tack sharp at 344 ppi. Well anything is good above ~310 ppi. The large screen makes for a great gaming experience(even asphalt 8 or real racing 3 does not lag even at their highest settings) and watching movies is a treat for the eyes. Large screen means more content is able to display at a time(usually, in this case it is a definite yes). You can read full fledged desktop sites with ease without any zooming. nThe ability to use pencils is great. It is pretty accurate though it lacks palm rejection:-/. (use a 6b pencil to avoid scratches. A 4b pencil is also good)nTouch response is great. nnCALL QUALITY:nIn contrary to some reviews on the internet, the call quality is great. When it on full volume you can make out wht others are saying even without sticking your phone to the ear(that's in a relatively quiet environment).nThe ear phone speaker quality is very good.nnPERFORMANCE: nsnapdragon 800. Yes that's all. It's crazy fast zipping through menus and settings will put iphones to shame. Don't expect even a single game to lag on it. Not even one.nnIssues: nNot faced anything problamatic yet.nnThe cover which flikart is giving with it is NOT worth 2999(definitely). That movit flip covers can.be bought for 699 or 599rs. But the quality is still good.nnFAQs: 1) does this has self cracking issues?nAnswer: no the z ultra has none of these self cracking glass. Though the original Z, Z1, Z2, Z3 has it. n2)how do I know it?nI have played very demanding games while the phone was charging enough to heat it and then left it to cool.nn3) does the box contains magnetic dock/cable?nAnswer :No,You will have to get one from either eBay or your local dealer. I selected the rs 390 one on ebay and then used ebay10deal to get a 10% discount. What I got was an original sony magnetic charging cable:-D. nn4)how's the front camera?nAnswer: good but not great.nn5) Will it get lollipop? nAnswer: The z ultra gpe already has one. This one will be getting soon.nn6)wifi range?nAnswer: goodnn7)Sound quality? nnAnswer: external speaker is not so loud due to water proofing. But the audio through the headphone jack is very good.nnHoping that I helped you make an Informed choice
