How would you change Sony’s Xperia Z Ultra?
When Brad Molen described Sony’s Xperia Z Ultra as “the best phone you’ll probably never buy,” it was probably true of most Sony smartphones. The 6.44-inch device had a beautiful design, good build quality, had a fast engine and could withstand water, much like every other Sony smartphone you see.

But I think Sony compromised a bit too much trying to get the phone thin. I use the camera flash on my Nexus 4 a LOT as a flashlight. And, especially in a phone at the price point the Xperia Z Ultra is likely to carry (in the $600 to $700 range, at least), it's a shame to include a camera of only 8MP when the... Read more →
