Sony Xperia Z Ultra
46,990 value for money:*
Expanding its water- and dust-proof range of Xperia Z series devices, Sony launched the Xperia Z Ultra last week. The device is gigantic – 6.4 inches – and though marketed as a phone, it is a fairly sleek tablet at 6.5 mm and weighs 212 grams. It has the 2.2 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. Sony says a special feature is its ability to recognise handwriting and inputs from a pencil, pen or stylus. If you do not have to make calls, then the 10.1-inch Xperia Tablet Z is a better choice for the same price.
