- An XL-sized phablet thats easy to handle The Sony Xperia T2 Ultra Dual is mid-range phablet with an extra-large display. It features Sonys trademark Omni-Balance design but ditches the glass for glossy plastic. Misses out on dust- and water-resistance, unlike some Sony smartphones. Dual SIM Active technology keeps both networks active at all times.
- Six inches of pixels and buttery smooth The T2 Ultra Dual sports a huge 6-inch display, making it one of the larger phablets available. 720p resolution results in a pixel density of 245ppi. The display is smooth and responsive, with glove mode that works like a charm. Viewing angles and brightness are top-notch, but sunlight legibility is poor.
- Interactive dinosaurs anyone? Theres a 13MP camera with an Exmor RS sensor, and 1.1MP front shooter. Plenty of camera features, including a full-fledged auto mode, manual control, filters and effects. Several camera apps come pre- loaded, like Portrait retouch to touch up faces and change your eye make-up in real time with different effects. AR effect adds fun, interactive animations to your photos. Dont worry, Mr T-Rex doesnt bite.
- Stark difference in daylight and low-light images The presence of a dedicated camera key is a welcome addition. Results are a mixed bag for the primary camera, with those in bright sunlight appearing crisp, but anything taken in low light appearing noisy. The front camera is only usable for video calls, selfies are too grainy to be profile pictures.
- A custom skin we could get used to The T2 Ultra runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, with a KitKat update in the works. Sonys custom UI doesnt take away from the Android experience, and adds useful features like Face Unlock. Small Apps lets you open small windows of selected apps and run them on top of full-screen apps.
- Extra features for one-handed operation There are some additions to improve one-handed usage. Double tapping the Home button brings the notification tray to the bottom of the screen. You can also shrink the keyboard and dock it on the right or left of the display. The dial pad is centred to make it easier to use with either hand.
- Smooth operator, handles graphics with ease Taking care of performance is a 1.4GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, paired with 1GB of RAM and an Adreno 305 GPU. Graphic heavy games didnt display any lag or stutter, with the screen relaying the graphics with ease. Day to day performance is commendable, with no freezes and quick app-load times.
- You can leave that charger at home Fuelling the 6-inch screen is an equally heavy duty 3,000mAh battery. The T2 Ultra Dual has one of the longest lasting batteries weve tested on a smartphone, easily lasting over a day and a half with heavy usage. And should you need it, there are several power saving modes to prolong battery life further.
- At a glance 6-inch, 1,280 x 720 pixels (245 ppi) 1.4GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor Adreno 305 GPU 1GB RAM 8GB in-built storage with microSD slot 13MP primary camera with flash, 1.1MP front camera Android 4.3 3,000mAh battery Dual-SIM, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and NFC
- - Average camera Shiny plastic construction that tends to scratch and smudge easily Call quality is average Pros and cons + Large, bright display with excellent colour reproduction No lags or freezes in performance Battery that lasts really long Slim and lightweight despite its size
- Price: Rs 25,990 Pricing and verdict Phablets are all the rage now, but six inches may not be everyones cup of tea. That said, the T2 Ultra Dual isnt cumbersome to use, thanks to its lightweight and slim construction. Performance and battery life are commendable, and with attractive pricing, this is a good bet if youre looking for a big screen smartphone
