When the brand new Sony Xperia Z Ultra was revealed at the end of last month, after countless leaks, Sony dropped a few teaser videos showing off the new 6.4-inch smartphone. However, those didn’t quite do justice in providing us with a realistic idea of just how big a 6.4-inch smartphone is. This is truly a phablet, and the site RingHK is showing us just how big it really is.

The Sony Xperia Z Ultra is a 6.4-inch smartphone with a 1920 x 1080p full HD resolution. They’ve tossed in a 2.2 Ghz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor and 2GB of RAM, and it runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. It surely is an impressive phone and could rival the upcoming Note III from Samsung. However, look how massive it is next to the Nexus 7, a tablet.

Above and below are a few photos showing the Z Ultra next to the 7-inch Nexus 7 tablet from Google and ASUS that was announced late last month. The New Nexus 7 is smaller than the original by a few mm, but still, this phone is barely smaller than a tablet. Pretty big right? As a reminder the X Ultra hits the streets next month.


The site mentions the Nexus 7 as having a much better display, obviously due to the higher pixel density, as well as much better viewing angles. Overall though, these photos are all about the size. We knew the Xperia Z Ultra was large, but didn’t think it was that big. That 4.7-inch Moto X display sounds real good right about now. Considering we can hold it comfortably with one hand. What do you guys think?

    This is… ridiculous. Only usage case I see worth while is if you are a professional and always use a bluetooth. Phablet stays in bag until you are presenting stuff with it.

    We as a specie will just have to grow bigger hands. Wait, isn’t there an app for that!? :-O

    This type phone/tablet is exactly what I need. I use my phone 95% in the car, which is mounted in cradle with charger etc.. The larger screen will make it much easier to see messages, and data coming in etc. Blue tooth takes care of the phone services.

    Just get the Sony SBH52 to complement the phone and you are all good to go.

    I’m torn. The massive size kills portability but increases usability. If you walk around with a bag, this will probably be amazing, but I’ll have a really hard time trying to fit this thing in my pocket or strapping it to my arm to track my stats when I go for a run.
