Sony Xperia T2 Ultra Smartphone Review

by June 27, 2014 0 comments

Sony introduced Xperia T2 Ultra, a cheaper alternative to its premium phablet Xperia Z Ultra. The 6-inch sleek phablet comes at a more affordable price, accepts dual SIMs, and sports 13 MP rear camera and has a large battery. The company is eyeing the mid-range segment with this new phablet. It runs on Android 4.3 (Jelly Bean) and supports two Micro-SIM slots that work on dual standby mode. It has Bluetooth 4.0 with A2DP support, A-GPS support and GLONASS along with a range of different sensors including accelerometer, gyro, proximity etc.

Body Design, Look and Build – It is slightly thicker (7.7mm) than its elder sibling Z Ultra (6.5mm) yet it’s lighter (171 grams) due to lack of the glass. The plastic body phablet is available in three colors- black, white and purple. The backside of the device is highly prone to scratches, attracts fingerprints easily and the glossy context is high as well, something that comes guaranteed with a plastic casing. The edges are rounded off; the right one is crowded with power, volume rocker and camera buttons. At the top of the right edge, the 3.5mm jack and dual SIM slots are placed. On the left side edge, the company has placed the microSD card slot and Micro-USB port for data transfer and charging.

Camera – The 13 MP rear camera with LED flash is fairly decent for still images and video shoots in daylight. Indoor and outdoor shots are nice and won’t look shabby, but they loose clarity if you zoom in too much. We did experience noisy images in lowlight conditions, but, considering the price, the camera quality is decent, and its user interface is also fairly easy to use. The front-facing 1.1 MP camera is average, so don’t expect too much from it.

Battery – I would love to call it a powerhouse because its non-removable Li-Ion 3000 mAh battery can last for up to nine hours. With normal usage, it can offer more than one day’s battery backup.

Our experience of using the device was pleasant. Its display offers decent net surfing and watching video experience with crisp and vivid colours. The default browser Chrome is adequately fast. Moto X and Gionee Elife E7 are the strong competitors of T2 Ultra, but if your requirements are specific such as battery life and 6-inch screen, then T2 Ultra is the best choice at the moment.

Bottomline: With a crisp and clear display, decent rear camera, and long battery life, Sony T2 Ultra is a strong contender in the mid-range phablet segment.
Price: Rs. 24,990.00

Pros: Bright colorful display, long battery life, sleeker device, nifty performer
