If you’re the owner of the Sony Xperia Z Ultra, you might have heard that there is an unofficial Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the device. The update was basically intended for the smaller sized Xperia Z1, but developers managed to port it onto the Xperia Z Ultra, although the end result was a rather buggy experience.That being said, the good news for Xperia Z Ultra owners is that it […]
Back in 2013, Sony announced the Xperia Z Ultra which was a smartphone that seemed to have blurred the lines between smartphone and tablet, especially with a display sized at 6.4-inches. It was an interesting device to say the least, but could Sony be getting ready to make a come back with a successor, or was the Xperia Z Ultra a one-time thing?Well according to an alleged leaked rendering (via […]
Back in 2013, Sony attempted to blur the line between smartphones and tablets with the Sony Xperia Z Ultra. It was a commendable effort on Sony’s part, although we have to wonder if a 6.44-inch display might be too big. However it looks like Sony could be back again with the Xperia Z Ultra’s successor, at least according to a recent teaser image posted by Sony.As you can see in […]
Sony pushed the phablet’s boundaries further last year with the Xperia Z Ultra. Its defining feature is most definitely the 6.4-inch full HD Triluminos display with X-reality for mobile. While the company hasn’t revealed official sales figures it looks like it may be having some problems in moving these units off the shelves. Which is why in just one week two different variants of the Sony Xperia Z Ultra have […]
Back in December last year Sony’s dust and waterproof phablet, the Xperia Z Ultra, got its very own Google Play Edition variant. At the time this device carried a price tag of $649 on the Google Play Store. It has come to our attention today that Google has significantly cut the price of the Xperia Z Ultra GPE.
In the past week, we did hear about how Sprint mentioned about Android 4.4.3 KitKat for the Nexus 5 smartphone, which leads to the question as to which particular device is going to be the next one to receive this particular mobile operating system update. There is every chance that the Sony Xperia Z Ultra Google Play edition is all up for it, at least according to the Bluetooth SIG.
A couple of weeks ago, we reported that the Android 4.4 KitKat update would soon be making its way onto devices like the Sony Xperia Z Ultra, and sure enough it has. According to a report from the XDA Developers forum, it seems that the update has begun to make its way to users in Hong Kong (model number C6833), meaning that we expect it might take a while before […]
Sony did make an announcement over its official Twitter account that they have lined up a brand new software update for the the Sony Xperia Z1 as well as the Sony Xperia Z Ultra. This particular update will not be the Android 4.4 KitKat release that many would have been looking forward to, but I guess this is where the second law of updates apply – any update is better […]
After being rumored, spotted on Sony’s website, and making its way past the FCC, the Sony Xperia Z Ultra WiFi-only version has been officially announced for Japan. As it stands it appears that the device is only available for Japan at the moment and will be priced at around $495 and will be released on the 24th of January. However availability of the device for other regions has yet to […]
A little over a week ago, we reported that Sony might be working on a WiFi-only version of its Sony Xperia Z Ultra device. Like we said at that time, considering that the Xperia Z Ultra came with a whopping 6.44” display, some might feel more comfortable using it as a tablet-ish sort of device rather than a smartphone, so by taking out cellular capabilities, it would transform the device […]
Back in 2013, Sony launched the Xperia Z Ultra, a smartphone that defied the conventions of how big a smartphone should be, especially since it launched with a whopping 6.44” display, which at that time made it the biggest smartphone around (it has since been overtaken by the Hisense X1 which comes with a 6.8” display). Given the device’s size, it would make for a pretty nifty tablet as well, […]
Earlier this year Sony released their first “lens style cameras.” The DSC QX100 and DSC QX10 are basically stand-alone cameras that resemble lenses, they can also be mounted on a smartphone using the mount that’s built-in to it so that the smartphone can be used as a remote control and a viewfinder. They work with Android and iOS devices and reportedly even BlackBerrys. Sony also launched the Xperia Z Ultra […]
Earlier we had reported that the Sony Xperia Z Ultra Google Play Edition was being plagued by a rather odd bug that would prevent the user from uninstalling apps. App uninstallation is usually a straightforward and painless process which can be accomplished by either dragging the app to the trash bin icon, or head on over to the Google Play store and uninstall it from there. Well the good news […]
