The shape of the Xperia Z Ultra is more elongated and its corners are not as rounded by what the subject is not so comfortable. Before closing the section of the design include Sony has equipped this model with the known resistance to water, but in this case up the ante with IP58 certification, which allows dives continued for an indefinite time.
The screen is the star of any smartphone, but in this case even more because its size is exaggerated. Anyone buying a mobile six inches and is willing to sacrifice the functionality it offers a more manageable terminal, surely requires a screen that offers the best images.

Besides the obvious sharpness, the manufacturer adds the system ClearBlack improves contrast and makes it look good even with direct sunlight.

The screen of the Sony Xperia Z Ultra is even broader, namely 6.44 inches diagonally and has the same resolution fullHD, hence the low density 342 dpi. Just as your opponent, this model also has a number of systems that improve the image as Triluminos technology that optimizes color or the X-Reality engine that processes all the images and the improvement to create the best possible viewing. The Xperia Z Ultra allows the use of a touch pointer on its surface, but also records gestures made with conventional pencil or ballpoint metal tip.

The point of power is a clear tie to have the same processor, Snapdragon 800 to 2.2 gigahertz frequency and two GB of RAM. However at this point it should be noted that the operating system of Nokia Lumia 1520 works very smooth even with less powerful chips, so here plays with an edge. The Lumia 1520 Lead in memory to provide a background of 32 Gb, while the Sony Xperia Z Ultra stays at 16 Gb Both include an expansion slot for cards microSD, which can reach 64 GB maximum.
The operating system is a crucial aspect, even the internal components of each terminal.

The advantage of this system is that being open source the user has much more freedom to customize or also when installing different applications.

The downside is that the app store is not as extensive, but it has the most demanding applications and is integrated with the most popular social networks.
