I got my first look at Xperia Z Ultra today. It goes on sale on July 30th here in Taiwan.
First impressions were great, it is super light and super thin. Screen is great. It is also super fast.
But after playing with it in the Sony store I realized the speakers are not only very quiet, but they also shake the entire device heavily when listening to anything. I pulled out my Galaxy Note 8.0 and its 50% sound volume matched the Xperia Z Ultra’s max volume, and my Note’s speakers are nothing to write home about.
Also all of the white demos on display had trouble with the Micro SD/SIM card cap not fitting properly, effectively making the device not waterproof. While in the store, two Z Ultras froze, one needed to be reset with tweezers which took a good 5 minutes for the Sony employee to get to work. Lastly, the pencil stylus feature sometimes worked and sometimes was unresponsive.
Originally we were going to preorder today but are very hesitant now. Really hope Sony can fix these issues by the launch next week.#sony #xperia #ultra #xperiazultra +Sony
