There are phones, and then there are BIG phones. And then there is the Sony Xperia Z Ultra. With a 6.4 inch screen, will this behemoth of a phone cast a shadow over the rest of the competition? Josh attempts to wrap his hands (and head) around the huge Sony Xperia Z Ultra.

  1. I wish Sony would release another 6.4 inch Phone. Samsung Galaxy Mega was out in 2013 and it had a 6.3 inch screen. Then last year we had the 6.3 inch Note 8. What is Sony waiting on?

  2. Anyone watching in 2018? Oh how the 6.4-inch Xperia Z Ultra was viewed back then, when even 5-inches was considered already large in retrospect. How times have changed….

  3. You know, I think Sony has a crappy 3rd party company that builds it's Experia line of phones. It's the only explanation to why Sony's DSLR cameras are the best on the market: Sony a77II, Sony a99, Sony a6000. Sony a6300. Not to mention their DSLR Lens line up: G-lens, Vario-Sonnar® T*, Distagon T* and their collaboration with ZEISS(an industry leader in Lens manufacturing) and yet they seem to just drop the ball on cell phone cameras. My $270.00 Sony WX350 can kill anything from their cell phone line up. It's very disconcerting to see with a $600+ price tag. Time after time, Sony is SHOOTING THEMSELVES IN THE FOOT! Come on SONY, STOP COMPROMISING!! If they don't do something in their next iteration, I believe that they finally have dug themselves into a deep quandary hole that they will not be able to climb out of. I say…FIRE their operations/products director!! Sony, LISTEN! Here's an idea to blow everything out of the water and boost sales….PUT A 1" SENSOR WITH AT LEAST A HIGH QUALITY Vario-Sonnar® T* LENS SENSOR INSIDE OF THE NEXT ITERATION OF THIS PHONE!! YES IT CAN BE DONE SONY!! JUST DO IT!!!
