Sony has launched a phablet on the market, the Xperia T2 Ultra . This terminal, medium-high range with a six-inch screen , is designed specifically for those who are thinking of buying a large mobile without having to pay a lot for it .
The Sony Xperia T2 Ultra has a Qualcomm Snapdragon quad-core processor with a power of 1.4 gigahertz and a RAM of one gigabyte . It also has an internal memory of eight gigabytes that, if it falls short, we can expand it by MicroSD up to 32 gigabytes , a capacity more than enough to save movies, videos or music.
One of its strengths is the camera , how could it be otherwise, since the Japanese company knows that it is a feature that fits well among users. It has thirteen megapixels on the main one and 1.1 on the front , more than enough to take those selfies that are setting the trend so much.
Next, we are going to analyze step by step all the possibilities offered by the new Sony phablet to see what this smartphone offers us.
Design and display
With the design that characterizes Sony smartphones , this terminal has silver sides that give it a classic and elegant style . In addition, its just 7.65 millimeters thick combines them with a six-inch screen , which makes it perfect for viewing any content we want. This terminal can be purchased in white, black and purple , as the user prefers.
Thanks to its finish and the corners that the device has, they provide a good grip, since it can be easily held with one hand despite its dimensions. In fact, it measures 165.2 x 83.8 x 7.65 millimeters and weighs 171.7 grams . Obviously, it is not suitable for people looking for a handy device, but it is for those looking for a phablet with which they can adequately display videos, movies or texts.
Its screen has a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels with Triluminios technology , which according to the Japanese brand produces more vivid and true- to-life colors . In this way, everything that has to do with landscapes or details will be seen with much more realism than in other terminals.
This system is combined with a Mobile Bravia Engine 2 image processing engine , which improves aspects such as image contrast . The most demanding might miss the Full HD resolution on their screen and the water resistance , but possibly the company has not incorporated it to lower costs. However, we have to say that it is a phone that fits well to be a mid-range.
Camera and multimedia
If there is something in which the brand stands out, it is in the manufacture of its cameras, and in this case it could not be less. Thirteen megapixel incorporating an Exmor RS sensor and HDR function to improve the sharpness of images and videos. It also has the ability to record video in high resolution of 1080 pixels .
However, the best features of this are the different ways that can be given to photographs . In this way, we find Superior Automatic , which takes photos with optimized settings or the well-known AR effect , which takes snapshots with virtual characters and scenes. The Beauty mode will be very useful when we want to take those selfies that are so trending. In fact, the camera front has 1.1 megapixels , which allows you make video calls through Skype or Hangouts as 720 pixels. It also has the geo - tagging function to be able to locate where you took the snapshot.
Another of the strengths of the terminal is the multimedia section . Thus, it is compatible with three-dimensional games , has the PlayStation certificate and allows you to mirror the TV screen wirelessly. In addition, if we have more equipment of the brand, we can connect them with each other easily.
Also, thanks to the speakers that are located on the front, we can perfectly listen to any type of music. The device integrates a number of significant enhancements such as xLoud, Clear Audio + , voice enhancement, and a microphone that cancels ambient noise . This makes the user experience very positive, as we have seen, since it not only shows that it is up to the task in the camera, but also in the multimedia aspect. Therefore, if you are one of those who like to listen to music or video your friends with clear sound, this is your phone.
Power and memory
The Sony Xperia T2 Ultra has a Qualcomm Snapdragon quad-core processor at a power of 1.4 gigahertz and a RAM of one gigabyte . This feature is perhaps the most significant of the fact that we are faced with a mid-high range terminal, although it must also be said that the equipment works smoothly without causing problems of any kind.
The phablet offers an internal memory of eight gigabytes , something poor if we are one of those who store hundreds of photos and videos in the terminal, as well as applications or other files. However, the Japanese brand allows us to expand this capacity up to 32 gigabytes , an amount with which we will have enough space to save files.
Operating system and applications
The smartphone comes installed with Android 4.3 , the software for mobiles and tablets. Although Sony has chosen Jelly Bean instead of KitKat to incorporate it into this mobile, it is possibly to adjust the price of the terminal a bit. Anyway, it makes up for it with the apps.
The phone has all the applications in the Google store , which already number more than a million among all of them. Thus, we highlight Google+, Hangouts, Gmail and YouTube . In addition, two of the networks of the moment, Facebook and Twitter , are pre-installed . Also, Sony incorporates Movies , to be able to create your own videos and edit them from your own terminal. A very useful app if you are one of those who like to upload videos to any social network.
The Sony Xperia Ultra T2 has a 4G connection that reaches 150 Mbps download speed, but it also allows us 3G connections in the event that there is no LTE coverage . It also has basic connections such as WiFi , Bluetooth port and GPS .
However, it also has other less common connections such as DNLA , to mirror the screen, NFC , to make mobile payments, and ANT + , for sports apps. It also has a port Jack 3.5 mm for headphones and port microUSB for charging the phone.
Autonomy, availability and conclusions
The terminal has a range of 3,000 milliamps , which means that we can use the phone for fourteen hours in conversation and 24 in 3G navigation . The Sony Xperia T2 Ultra is now available for a price of 400 euros in its free version.
This smartphone has very balanced specifications for the cost it has , although for a hundred euros more we can find other better terminals. However, the phone responds very well in terms of camera and applications and if we can complain about something, it is its RAM . Also, the terminal is perfect for those looking for a large phone with a good objective without having to pay excessively for it.
