I'm Luke Westaway of CNET and today we're taking a look at the Sony Xperia Z Ultra.
Now the first thing you'll notice about Sony's newest smartphone is that it's absolutely massive.
This display measures 6.4 inches making the Zed Ultra considerably bigger than even Samsung's Galaxy Note 2. Although it's so big that you might struggle to fit it in your pocket, the resolution of this display is a tidy 1920 x 1080 pixels, so onscreen action
does look very, very sharp.
Just by being so big, this phone's very thin at about 6.5 millimeters thick and it feels very light too, so although it's huge, it is not un-portable.
Like the Sony Xperia Z, it's waterproof, so it should survive an accidental trip down the toilet.
Spin it around the back and you'll find an 8-megapixel camera which is pretty standard, but Sony says you'll be able to shoot HDI photos and videos and use the water resistance to shoot HD footage underwater, which could be fun if you have a holiday boat, or if you
fancy invading your local aquarium.
It's running android 4.2 Jelly Bean but you do get some extra features including a battery stamina mode which automatically turns off certain phone functions when the display isn't being used.
Sony reckons this technique could make the Zed Ultra's stand by time up to 4 times as long, but will put that to the test in the full review.
This phone is powerful too, there's a quad-core Qualcomm CPU in here clocked at a speedy 2.2 gigahertz.
Meanwhile, you got 16 gigabytes of onboard storage of which 11 gigabytes are
user accessible, but you can beef that up using a micro SD card if there's not enough space.
So, let me know if you're interested or whether it just seems a bit too big.
