If you’re a fan of phablets with massive displays, then here are two suggestions for you: the Sony Xperia T2 Ultra and the Xperia Z Ultra. They act like a phone but they think like a tablet. We hope that you have big hands, because you’ll need long fingers in order to operate on them, but if the size is what you like about these devices, then you’ll be the happiest owner. Plus, you’ll take awesome photos with the Xperia Z, which has a better camera.
Displays and sizes
The Xperia T2 Ultra’s screen is an IPS LCD with the size of 6 inches, which is able to support a resolution of 720x1280pixels. The Xperia Z Ultra is a full HD phablet whose 6.4 inches screen renders a higher resolution – 1080x1920pixels.
The Xperia T2 Ultra is lighter, weighting almost 172 grams, and that’s because it’s a lot smaller, measuring 165.2×83.8×7.7mm. The Xperia Z Ultra is 50 grams heavier and its dimensions are: 179.4×92.2×6.5mm.
Hardware and OS
The Xperia T2 Ultra runs extremely fast because it’s equipped with a quad core cortex A7 processor (clocked at 1.4GHz) + Qualcomm MSM8928 (Snapdragon 400 chipset). The phablet comes with 8GB of internal storage, which is expandable up to 32GB.

Both phablets come loaded with Android Jelly Bean OS, but the Xperia Z Ultra’s OS version is upgradeable to the KitKat version. The first device has 1GB of RAM, while the second phablet is equipped with 2GB of RAM.
The Xperia T2 Ultra has a better primary camera, which has a resolution of 13MP and features such as LED flash and autofocus. It also has a 1.1MP secondary camera, which is weaker than Xperia Z’s front camera – 2MP. On the other hand, the second device loses in this category because its rear camera is of only 8MP.
