Sony, apart from the likes of Samsung and Apple, has been consistently in news for releasing a host of new devices in a hurry. The hurry, of course, is understandable since no body wants to left behind in what has become one of the most exciting and growing smartphone markets on the planet.
And with this ever-growing market in mind, Sony has now successfully introduced the new Xperia T2 Ultra phablet device into the market that will now look to compete against a host of other different devices that fall under the same phablet category.
The T2 Ultra is Sony's way of try and keep a hold on the mid-range segment in the market. But while keeping a hold on the market is quite big a deal for any company, for Sony, personally, it's also an opportunity to make the kind of changes and improvements the company may have wanted to make to the previously released Xperia Z Ultra.
So, basically, the new Xperia T2 Ultra phablet is a cheaper version of the Z Ultra. The device, compared to its predecessor, has been snipped down to accommodate numerous different features that were otherwise missing from the original Z Ultra.
However, keeping all comparisons at bay for the moment, we here at GizBot have come across a T2 Ultra unit that we have kept for the time being for its first Hands-On look at the device. Let's see what's on offer.
Sony Xperia T2 Ultra: Design and Display
If you check out the T2 Ultra at a glance, you will notice how similar the phablet is with the last released Z Ultra. However, the device is not that heavy at hand, although it may look quite big (which it obviously is) at first.
The lack of weight has been made possible by removing the usual glass casing that actually came with the other Xperia devices. As we expected, the device's edges have been rounded off, although that doesn't take away anything from the fact that device is still a sort of a challenge if you are trying to fit it into your trouser pockets.
At 6-inch size, the device, however, offers a very neat and professional look. The device offers a dedicated shutter button along with the finger-friendly placed power button on the right side of the device. However, make sure you don't cut your nails since the SIM tray can be quite a pain to pull out.
