Sony Xperia T2 Ultra 

Released June, 2014
  • Android 5.0
  • 4G
  • 6"
  • Quad core 1.4 GHz
Another strong point is the screen's brightness, which we measured as 508 nits – on the high mark for a good LCD display.

When we stack the longest battery life we've ever measured, with the very good pictures and videos produced by the phablet's 13 MP camera, and the dual SIM Active functionality, we can pronounce the T2 Ultra as one of the best phablets in the midrange category.

Reviews Word on the street for the Sony Xperia T2 Ultra

The footage looks pretty on the large, bright display, too.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Screen

Granted, it is a big handset, but you can't expect anything less from a 6” phablet, plus it's very thin and light for the screen size.
by PhoneArena (Apr, 2014)
If you are looking for a still-large screen, but smaller dimensions, Samsung's 5.7” Note 3 is always a great choice, with its S Pen stylus functionality, or the 5.5” Oppo Find 7a.
by PhoneArena (Apr, 2014)
We could also expect a bit more from the display's pixel density, but it's a worthy tradeoff for the phone's price and performance.

Battery

So far so good, but the best thing about the Xperia T2 Ultra is the battery life it scores from the 3000 mAh juicer.
by PhoneArena (Apr, 2014)
The back cover is not removable, and the 3000 mAh battery is sealed inside.
by PhoneArena (Apr, 2014)
Sony is renowned for the well-balanced battery consumption of its midrangers, which consistently score towards the top percentile in our battery test, but it outdid itseld with the phablet.

Camera

By default the phablet shoots in a wide 16:9 aspect ratio, which is about 9 MP, so if you want to use the full 13 MP resolution of the camera, you have to change it to 4:3 manually from the app settings.

We also get Augmented Reality overlays, and a bunch of manual scene modes like Panorama.

The LED flash does a fine job in low-light scenarios, illuminating the scene quite evenly from about five feet (1.5m) distance Sample images.

Video

The sound recorded with the video is strong and clean, too.
by PhoneArena (Apr, 2014)
The pixel density is a minor annoyance, compared with all those 1080p displays, as the text here looks less detailed and legible when zoomed out, and a tad jagged even when zoomed in.
by PhoneArena (Apr, 2014)
It's not that bad, though, as you'd be looking at the T2 Ultra further afar from your eyes than, say, you would do with a 5-incher, so for the general user this resolution would be fine – if not with small text, then with pictures and video.
by PhoneArena (Apr, 2014)

Battery life

The company promises the whopping 24 hours of talk time in 3G mode for the T2 Ultra, and almost a month and a half on standby, as well as 10 hours of HD video playback on a charge.
by PhoneArena (Apr, 2014)
That's a great feature to have on a dual SIM Active handset, which sucks more juice out of the battery to maintain two networks at once, so if you are looking for a phablet that will last you two or three days with average usage, the T2 Ultra it is.
by PhoneArena (Apr, 2014)
The T2 Ultra is the longest-lasting mobile device we've ever tested, with the record 10+ hours of screen-on time – need we say more?
