    The price with the features looks ok, but though a bit expensive.

    I bought the white model 2 weeks ago with store warranty lang. Medyo madulas lang eh wala pa akong mabilhan ng case pa.

    “…available… for Php31,790 SRP, or Php33,490 at 0% interest for 6 months.”

    Sigh. If the sum of payments is greater than the retail price, it’s not 0% interest – and increasing the price and then saying 0% is just deceptive marketing hoping to take advantage of less financially-savvy consumers.

    In this case, 33,490 paid over six months, when the retail price is 31,790, equates to a monthly add-on rate of 0.89%, or 18% effective annual interest rate – hardly “0%” interest.

    “The Sony Xperia Z Ultra HSPA+ version will be available… for Php31,790 SRP, or Php33,490 at 0% interest for 6 months.”

    Sigh. Time and time again, you keep mentioning these fake “0%” interest prices. It’s not that complicated – if the sum of payments does not equal the original price, it’s not 0% interest – and raising the price and then stating “0%” is just deceptive marketing aimed at taking advantage of less financially-savvy consumers.

    In this case, six payments totaling 33,490, with an original price of 31,790, equates to a 0.89% monthly add-on rate, or over 18% effective annual interest rate – hardly “0%”.

    had a hands-on with it, it’s really a damn good, sexy piece of hardware.. but it’s freakin’ huge for my taste, it might have been better if they made it as a small tablet.

  9. roiji says:

    i’ll just wait for the LTE :D

  10. Jacob says:

    i d0nt think 3000mah can support this m0nster..!!

  11. dj0502 says:

    Are you sure about the LTE? I inquired witn sony rep in megamall, and they said that all Xperia Z Ultra that they will be selling are all LTE units. But of course, the Sony rep might be wrong too.

  12. abuzalzal says:

    As per Youtube hands-on/reviews from various users :

    1. The stylus doesn’t work as advertised , may sporadic stuttering daw at hindi pressure-sensitive

    2. The screen gets really really hot during gpu-intensive games

    3. Weak, thin sound

    4. Logic would suggest that a 3000 mAh battery is less than ideal to support that type of screen size + resolution + monster hardware

    Let’s see kung anong pang-counter ng Note 3 dito

  13. Aruna says:

    Pretty awesome specs. But it will have a tough time as it is going to face competition from the Samsung Galaxy note 3.

  14. Lord MiKeZiLLa™ says:

    Php31,790 SRP, or Php33,490 at 0% interest for 6 months…

    0% yeah right. “FALSE ADVERTISEMENT”

    clearly PHP31,790 of PHP33,490 is 5.08% (AND NOT 0% FUCKERS)

    That is PHP1701.29 for 6 months or PHP283.55 monthly.

    DIDN’T know that mostly people doing bank advertisement today is 101% DUMB on mathematics.

    yung Free slim folio case ba available sa lahat ng Sony stores? i’ll be buying the xperia z ultra within the week, and mas maganda nga kung may available agad na case lalo na ang laki niya.

  16. fcinterfan says:

    Anyone knows if Globe will bundle this to a plan?

  17. Roy says:

    THis is so fun but I am not really in favor of that 8 MP rear cam. its too small for a tall phone.. I’ll wait for the LTE and higher specs.

  18. jRN says:

    just bought this device yesterday at Sony Store MOA branch. Price was P29,500 cash payment. sa Xperia Store nasa P30,990 ang cash payment nila, buti na lang tumingin pa ako sa Sony, almost P1,500 din ang difference, same package bundle kasama ang headset at Muvit Slim Folio Case.

  19. Paxton Petty says:

    I bought mine last September 10 at Sony CDOC and the price is Php 33,490 (cash or credit card). Why the difference in price from other Sony shops?

  20. It is appropriatee time to make a few plans forr the future and it’s time to be happy.
