Deal alert: $200 shaved off the Xperia Z Ultra Google Play edition
posted by Chris P. / Apr 30, 2014, 3:07 AM
The whopping 200 bucks have been shaved off the Google Play edition Xperia Z Ultra's price tag, bringing the total down to the more agreeable $449. Sony's monstrosity of a 6.44-inch phone has now been on the market for some 10 months and this fact, in combination with the price reduction definitely begs some questions. Prime among those is whether Sony is actually close to releasing a sequel -- a Z2 Ultra if you will -- and just trying to spike demand in order to clear inventory before game time. At the same time, we haven't had any related leaks -- not even a peep.
pixel resolution (342 ppi), and the phone is powered by a powerful quad-core Snapdragon 800 system chip by Qualcomm and 2GB of RAM. In addition, you're also getting an 8-megapixel rear snapper, along with 2-megapixel front-facing selfie cam. Last, but not least, a relatively hearty, 3050 mAh cell is keeping the lights on for as long as it can.Anyhow, at $449, you'll actually strike a decent bargain, for the LTE-enabled Z Ultra is far from obsolete hardware-wise. The massive glass at the front has a crispy, 1080x1920

For watching movies, consider the Samsung TabPro 8.4 at $369. It's not a phone, but it has a very nice QHD screen. This Sony isn' too bad, but according to reviews, the headphone output is subpar.

Don't even try and lie. The tab pro does NOT have a QHD display, it has a Full HD display wwith 359 PPI.

With Sony closing the majority of its retail stores and not giving a firm date on the release of the Z2, they can continue to try and throw deals but, people won't buy into their crappy strategy. ..And they wonder why their devices don't sell so well in the US???

The regular z ultra can also be bought at the same price, albeit here in asia... 450$ This makes the launch of T2 Ultra 430$ a headache to balance, which one to choose, more power under the hood + larger full hd screen of the Z Ultra or longer batt life with nicer camera + flash of the T2 Ultra? The Z Ultra also has more storage, ram and is water + dust proof... A phone with combined best features of both would be the perfect phablet for me... Z2 Ultra anyone? August will probably tell the answer...
