Sony Xperia Z Ultra vs Galaxy Mega 6.3 vs Ascend Mate: specs comparison of the Goliaths

Right off the bat we notice how much thinner the Xperia Z Ultra is than even the 8 mm Mega 6.3. At 6.5 mm it is the thinnest Full HD smartphone out there, and also just a tad heavier than the other two, despite the much larger screen, the glass chassis and the metal frame around the Triluminous display, which also has the largest pixel density of them all...

Many a times ppl living in caves cannot see world outside. I don't even own a MMX. Last phone that i bought was Xperia TX (yea in India). So step out of your cave and try and see some sunshine.

The Xperia ZU is the biggest by far, but it has the smallest battery. Nobody cares about thickness as long as it's below 9mm, give us battery.

Im really put off by the fact that it doesnt have FLASH. I mean, how do you built a flagship phone and leave out the flash? That means no LED flash light on the thing, like im used to with the Galaxy Series. Thats the only thing that makes the ZU imperfect. Better luck next time Sony.

DANIELLLL, my little poochie, you spelled better 'batter' in the second paragraph. Nice article, though, but my small feminine hands need something smaller; I'm just not used to holding anything so big.

I really dont get the stupidity of praising the design of ZU.. The fact that it looks like Xperia Z will not surprise you by this time, and it gone worst with that thick bezels So thick! And i saw some hands On, and the glass is super fingerprint magnet.. with those sharp edges..:/ that design language willwork with a tablet like Xperia Tablet Z but not in phones.. Xperia Z already feels uncomfortable.. and Huwaei Ascend Mate looks like a white version of Z Ultra.. Anyway i just want Sony to bring back the Xperia Arc S designs :(

The Xperia ZU has a better battery life than the Ascend mate yet a much smaller battery. Wow.
