Xperia Z Ultra, this beast need no introduction; Sony’s mid 2013 flagship device, first Snapdragon 800 SoC powered device with 6.4 inch 1080p HD screen with pencil touch input screen and flagship water and dust resistant nature. What amused tech enthusiasts about Xperia Z Ultra most is its enormous size 179.4 x 92.2 x 6.5 mm and weight 212 grams. It’s kind of Sony’s first phablet device and it was a lot praised by users for its good screen quality and viewing angles, unlike Xperia Z and Z1.

 Well screen on both handsets is beautiful and with good viewing angles while whites on Xperia Z Ultra were a bit warm may be because of yellow hue, which can be altered using white balance app.

    In term of contrast, the ZU is forward. But the whiteness of the screen, the Z1 Compact is better. Viewing of both is the same IMO.
