Sony Xperia Z Ultra is the largest 'phone' ever: here is how it eclipses all others (size comparison)
The Sony Xperia Z Ultra is real, it's official and... it's humongous. Sony calls its 6.44-inch creation a smartphone, most people would call it a phablet, and in reality it looks much more like a tablet than a phone. Heck, it even comes with a "handset" compact accessory to take calls!

It's hard to comprehend just how big a device with a 6.4-inch display really is. The Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 seemed absurd when we first got it in our hands and as quick we humans are to adapt to novelty, it seemed just too large even after we spend some time with it. The size comparison below is eye-opening - you'd see that the Xperia Z Ultra is noticeably larger than even the Mega 6.3.

The Z Ultra has one key advantage, though. It's got a razor thin body measuring just 6.5mm thick. Could that balance its humongous size? Partly, yes, but for the rest we'll leave the images below speak for themselves.

They forgot fonepad. Asus even claim it to be a phone. So technically, zu is not the largest phone.

Impressive stuff from Sony.

But I do not want it as I already have the ZL because of its compact size and 5" screen which is a more than enough pleasant viewing experience (No, I don't care about the viewing angles) and the performance has been good since the Android 4.2.2 update. I have the Xperia Tablet Z to do those Tablet task anyway.

I would get it since it says it comes with a handset accessory to make calls (assuming its actually convenient) if so, I could use it as a tablet and a phone for sure....nice one Sony :)

Wait the phone has no camera flash & only 3000mAh battery to power a 6.44" screen? are you effin kindding me SONY? ok the battery is justifiable but lack of Camera Flash?
This would probably again look incomplete when it's gonna be size up with the Note 3.

these frontal comparisons dont really do anyone justice. Theres a hands-on size comparison on engadet, and the Z compared to the ZU doesnt look nearly as small as it does here. But I sure am happy its 6.4 and not 6.2. You go Sony. You just may get my money this year. On something other than gaming media.
