Sony Xperia Z Ultra Google Play edition gets Android 4.4 update; bugs are exterminated
The Google Play edition of the largest screened smartphone currently available, the 6.4 inch Sony Xperia Z Ultra, has just received an update to Android 4.4.2. That matches the updates recently received by other Google Play editions like the HTC One, Samsung Galaxy S4 and the LG G Pad 8.3. The Google Play editions run without any manufacturer's UI on top of Android. In other words, the devices offer a stock Android experience. Because updates don't need to be vetted by carriers,Google Play edition devices receive updates well before carrier and even global versions of the same phone.

The Sony Xperia Z Ultra is equipped with that aforementioned 6.4 inch screen with resolution of 1080 x 1920. That works out to a pixel density of 342ppi. A quad-core 2.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU is driving the phone, which also includes 2GB of RAM and 16GB of native storage (11GB of which can be accessed by the user). A 64GB microSD slot is also available if you need more storage. The back and front facing cameras weigh in at 8MP and 2MP respectively and a 3050mAh battery keeps the lights on. With IP58 certification, the phone can withstand a dunking in up to 3 feet of water for no longer than 30 minutes.

The update, which weighs in at a hefty 448MB, also eliminates that nasty bug that prevented users from uninstalling apps. Other bugs exterminated include one dealing with security settings, a clear data bug, and one that affected the performance of Google Now.
