6.44 inch Sony Xperia Z Ultra shows up on invitation

0. phoneArena 12 Jun 2013, 23:12 posted on

What could very well be the smartphone with the largest screen on this planet was used on Sony's invitation for its July 4th event in France at 9:30am; the invite shows a sideways view of what is believed to be the 6.44 inch Sony Xperia Z Ultra. And it sure looks like this device is not only big where it counts, but also cuts a svelte figure at 6.5mm thick...

Flaws? My Xperia Z is flawless. No problem can be found anywhere. Samsung? Let's just say all my Samsung products all experienced slight glitches in the first few months and all either went dead or broke within a year. Totally wasted money on that printer. Bad quality and the stuff printed out is totally out of colored. Anyway, that was about a year or two ago. Still sticking with my 6 year old HP printer. 0.5 year old samsung printer epic fail.

I remember kyocera echo, a 4"(+/-) double display, I really like that concept, if that company push to "iMPROVE/INNOVATE" that device and make it mid to high end league, it may have a good future. Imagining 4+ inch ×2, you got 8+ inch display. .. just me!

Why do we still live in a world where they think 16GB of internal memory is enough for flagship superphones now a days?

Because there is SD card. The only thing that flagships nowadays is that they have cameras with a very good camera sensor. Full HD video (My Z records HD video for about 20 seconds and already 26 MB used) That is actually quite large for a file like that. But it's always a problem of pictures or videos shot in high definition. 13 MP photos belong to 64 GB SD cards. Comfortably using a 8 GB SD card for 3 years or so and it has filled up, containing over 3000 photos and videos. Now upgraded to a 32GB SanDisk Ultra class 10 card. The main reason why I'm not using 64GB is cause it's so expensive and I'm not that kind of movie-download guy. If you really want to see the real memory of the phone (Samsung is a troll here) Xperia Z offers 11.95 GB / 16GB just because the rest is occupied by Android and other UI. Samsung's UI is laggy and an epic troll. Galaxy S 4 Only 9.15 GB / 16GB. Samsung has upgraded its software and said to 'increase the storage space for users to solve the problem' New software rolled out. Result? 9.23GB / 16GB, !!!!????? Downloading All In One toolbox and clearing out all the cache probably gives you much more storage space. If you're thinking that Sony doesn't have enough storage space, just look at the GS4. As for the HTC One, the lack of microSD storage is perfectly understandable. 4MP ultrapixel and still gets the quality of about 10 MP photos, but with slightly less clarity after zooming. This gives way for more storage space for apps and other stuff rather than photos. Although GS4 supports SD cards, Jelly Bean doesn't allow the full transfer of apps (especially mightly large ones) to your SD card. So if you're a gamer probably go for the HTC one. If you're a photographer using phones or just a regular user, go for the Xperia Z. Balance between internal storage and SD card. When you're doing some gaming, (Like me, not a huge gamer) you'll quickly realize how insufficient and great those extra GBs from the Xperia Z to the GS4. Very lucky that I didn't choose GS4.
