Some will disagree with me but this is what the Z ultra should have been from the start, as in the shape and size and camera, minus the HD screen and the no IP58.

Posted by goldenface
I agree. It's a bit low powered but it shouldn't make that much of a difference. They've manage to fit a good camera and flash, which was missing from the ZU.

Agree 100%. If you look at Sony Russia's hands-on, the size is great compared to xperia z1

I'm thinking 1GB RAM maybe too little, yet at the same time, will people who buy this be concerned about raw specs?
Design is stunning as usual by Sony, can't fault it there, it's targeting all those Mid end Chinese Phablets that Huawei, ZTE etc... Are flooding the market with, im glad Sony has woken up to the Chinese competition as I did say last year that these guys are going to be stealing a lot of sales, especially from companies such as Sony, Htc, BlackBerry and so on.

T2 will definitely stick out from the crowd with its design, I hope pricing will be reasonable to.

With those specs and looking at the markets it is aimed at I'm expecting it to be competitively priced.

Considering KitKat (which it will be updated to) is supposed to run well on 512 MB according to Google them self, I doubt 1 MB should be considered as too little.

399 Euros RRP. So actual online prices could be as low as 340 Euros

Yep, I get what you mean.

Xperia T2 Ultra hands-on (Russian, comrade)

Display looks awesome! Camera man was finding a bad angle but the IPS display just looked good.

Posted by Away
This is going to sell really well. Looks amazing.

Top notch design again from Sony, the design language is spot on.

Like others said I wish the original ultra was of this size- I bet it would have sold better

yeah, get rid of the non sense pencil (anything) screen for the Ultra, extra bezel is not worth it and it makes no sense whatsoever in real life since you will probably scratch the screen. Too much sacrifices for a lot of non practical stuffs.

Back to the topic, this phone should really be shipped with Android 4.4, since it only have 1 gig ram.

I can bet this device will overtake the Z Ultra in selling units.
Sony should bring this device from begin instead the bigger Z Ultra. Finaly they didn't forget the LED flash.

T2 Ultra? Why no just T Ultra...

only 8 gig storage kind of ridicules for this day of age, they better let people install app on SD card.

Maybe this is supposed to be an upgrade to the Xperia T/TX?

phone arena's review: http://www.phonearena.com/rev[....]-T2-Ultra-Review_id3676/page/4
"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?" best mobile battery life ever? i did NOT expect that from a mid range phone. very impressive.

^Damn that's awesome for a midrange!


Posted by rikken
That is really impressive The z2, s5 and Note3 have all great batterytime but this is something else.

Posted by Bonovox
The Note 3 am afraid has poor battery under KitKat

Posted by Vipera ammodytes
fantastic battery results, and the camera is great too

Most devices that got updated to KitKat got the same problem.

Indeed. Just by using GSMArena's Photo Compare Tool and comparing it to the T, Z, Z1 and even the best in class 5S, Note 3 and 808, it's easy to say that Sony has done a fantastic job with the software for a mid-range phone.

Pan to the gravel and the grass on the right side and the girl's face for a better comparison. Remember to scale it to 8 or 12 MP.

T2, Z and T
T2, Z1 and 5S
T2, Note 3 and 808

Of course, 808 wins, showing that there are actually brown pebbles on the gravel (the T did show it, just blurry). Compared to the Note 3, I say it just lacks the sharpness.

Edit: The picture of the gravel with the brown pebbles is old and might had been replaced with a newer, grayscaled one.

Had this handset for about a month now (shipped in from Japan).

Hate to say it but the phone is trash, the processor has not been optimized at all.

Pretty much all the problems on the sony forum I've got but I decided to take the risk anyway.

http://talk.sonymobile.com/t5[....]d-p/Xperia_T2_Ultra_Ultra_Dual

A quick review

Positives
- Screen
- Camera
- Design

Negatives
- Walkman Player Crashing
- Battery life originally lasting a few days now no more than a day
- Memory leakage
- Laggy
- Strange bugs such as Walkman player assigning my own pictures as album covers
- Chrome crashing or keyboard not launching when pressing search

To get anything out of this junk several restarts are required. When the Walkman player crashes it no longer plays music so you have to reset the phone.

To begin with the phone was great which probably explains the positive reviews. I'm thinking of re-flashing the software every two weeks using Sony -Update service to try and get some stable use.

Guys, need more input on this phone. I'm planning to upgrade to this phone from Asus Zenfone 5 because of the wild nature of the Intel processor (mostly about apps incompatibility). I like the big screen, but just wondering about the RAM, is 1 GB enough? I'm quite a heavy user on my phone. I use it to type on Microsoft Mobile, and do presentation via miracast, play some games, browse and read pdf. At max I'm already down to 400 MB of RAM left on random check.

I'm fresh out of Windows Phone, so just wondering if Android is still a resource hog after all these updates.

Posted by Tsepz_GP
I wouldn't touch anything with less than 1.5GB RAM at this point in Android unless it's a Motorola Moto or a Google One device.

Thanks, I think I might just hold it off for a moment first.

@Midi_Amp

Forget T2! Go and catch the Z Ultra! Much better, a real highend flagship! And it costs sooooo cheapppp now!!!

T2 has no 1080p, no Snapdragon 800, only 1GB RAM, only 8GB ROM, plastic body, no waterproof...

I have two Ultras, my brother also got one. I'm very happy.

I tried many many new other devices but no one has a chance vs the Ultra! I always came back to Ultra. Had Z2, OneplusOne and many more...

If you don't need a good cam and can live with the size then its perfect for you!

When I buy a new device then only the Ultra successor, nothing else!

Sadly I need the dual sim... From Sony, the T2 Ultra seems the best choice around from any angle (battery life, camera, screen size, specs).
