The Sony Xperia Z Ultra is the first smartphone ever to incorporate a Full HD TRILUMINOS Display powered by Sony’s latest X-Reality for mobile devices to deliver the best viewing experience.

It uses Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 2.2GHz processor. It also delivers HD Voice to provide an ultimate entertainment experience. And or course, with an awesome battery performance, you will be able to maximize its usage and enjoy it more than you want.

The only waterproof Full HD smartphone

The Xperia phones are known to be water proof phones. This feature is also present in the Xperia Ultra Z. During the launch, it was submerged into the water right and it impressively lasted underwater for more than 30 minutes. You don’t need to put a water proof jacket on it to protect it from being wet. Taking pictures under water has never been easier, thanks to Xperia’s water proof technology and a dedicated shutter button.

Xperia Z Ultra is built for business

One of the most important things for me when buying a phone is “Can I use it for my business?”.  With it’s ultra responsive large screen, I can say that this is just perfect for business power users. Editing documents, reading news and email, taking notes during meetings are a lot easier with this device. You can also take notes even while on a call. Although Xperia Z Ultra does not come with a stylus, you may use any pointed object that you want – pencil, ballpen, pocket knife – and use it as your pseudo-stylus. You can use almost anything as a stylus. The easy-toggle keyboard makes it ideal for one-handed input and multi-tasking, with small apps to help you improve productivity so you don’t lose time browsing between windows.

Ultra fast camera

Sony is also known for great cameras on their smartphone. In this latest innovation in Xperia Z Ultra, you can capture Full HD Display as if you are recording using a professional camera. You can take high resolution selfie or groupie shots using its front camera, or enjoy clear video conference with your family and friends. Plus, what I like about this is it can take unlimited burst shots as long as your have enough memory to save it.
