Today I am going to talk about two epic smartphones, I am sure that you will enjoy this review and today I will make a comparison between the Sony Xperia Z Ultra and the Galaxy Note 2.
As far as hardware concerns go, there is only one similarity between the Sony Xperia Z Ultra and the Galaxy Note 2, they are both significantly larger than your average smartphone.
The Z Ultra measures 179.4 mm tall while the Galaxy Note 2 is 2 inches smaller than the Sony Xperia Z Ultra.
It is also worthy to note that the Sony Xperia Z Ultra is 3 mm thinner than the Sony Xperia Z Ultra.
The Xperia Z Ultra is composed mainly of glass on the front and back, it weighs much more than the Galaxy Note 2, I weighs about 30 grams more than the Note 2.
When thinking about the overall comfort of carrying aXperia Z Ultra versus a Note, I can guarantee you that the Note will fit more easily into your hand and into your pocket, you simply cannot carry a Sony Xperia Z Ultra and feel comfortable, it is way too bulky and heavy.
The Galaxy Note 2 is 2 parts phone and 1 part tablet while the Xperia Z Ultra is 2 parts tablet and 1 part phone, the Xperia Z Ultra is great in design but it will surely suffer because of the bulkiness, my personal opinion is that the Z Ultra is great for replacing a tablet.
The built quality of the Sony Xperia Z ultra is superb likewise the Note 2 is just as super as the Galaxy S4.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is made mostly of plastic that is finely design in a hyper glaze finish, the edges are rounded, making it much more comfortable to hold and the end result is a device that does not necessarily feel spectacular in the hand but other features make up for it.
The Xperia Z Ultra wins the hardware battle as it comes it a Snapdragon 800 chipset composed of a 2.2 GHz Quad Core CPU and 2GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage and one microSD slot.
The Xperia Z Ultra also features a 6.4 inch 1080p True HD IPS+ display that can make browsing on such a device a pure pleasure, combine this with the 8 megapixel primary camera and the 2 megapixel front facing camera and you can rest assured that the multimedia capabilities of such a device are quite impressive.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 comes in with a 5.5 inch 720p Super AMOLED display, 1.6 GHz quad-core Exynos chip, 2GB of RAM, 16/32/64GB of storage and a microSD slot.
The multimedia capabilities of the Galaxy Note 2 are quite impressive as the phone comes in with a 8 megapixel primary camera and a 1.9 megapixel front facing camera as well as a 3100mAh removable battery.
Overall both of these devices are quite impressive. If you are looking for an alternative to the classic Android tablet than the Sony Xperia Z Ultra may prove to be a wise choice, on the other hand, if the Z Ultra is too big for your hand you may want to try the beautifully crafted Galaxy Note 2 but you should keep in mind that the Z ultra has superior hardware specs, in the end it is up to you to decide which smartphone is the best for you.
