    I am a little sad how little new phones excite me. A few years ago I really wanted a new phone all the time, nowadays it's just slightly higher numbers and gimmicks.

    Well, with the 4k generation of screens coming I hope I will be able to exchange mine soon for a good price. That's something gadget related I can look forward to ;-)
    I would love a 4K tv however I am happy to buy a 1080p 3D tv from LG!

    Look at the SONY tv's turn on at PC World there was one good tv that was similar to LG one I look at both prices which were the same expensive!

    That's definitely something I neither need nor want :)
    Think about it being able to view the phone 1 cm away from your eyes without any drops of quality! ;)

    Or maybe looking at the screen with a magnifier glass to make the screen seem bigger!

    I have a ipad 3 which have a 2k resolution screen , apple claims it as RETINA display , I really don't see any difference in 1080p or this retina display on ipad , they look very similar to me , oh well my eyes actually cant tell the difference when I watch videos another Samsung tablet ; btw if a phone in future shipped with 2k/4k resolution , what will be the impact on battery life ? they need more powerful GPU to handle all the graphics on such high-resolution , apple failed in delivering for my ipad 3 , they claimed A5X (with 1 GB ram ) it has the same dual core processor found on ipad 2 and iPhone 4s but X here they stated as quad core graphics, which were not at powerful to handle the retina display resulting :- my ipad just lags here and there , so they decided to release ipad 4 with much more improved chipset and successor to A5X->A6X , I believe sd 805 will handle such resolution but what will be the benefit , Chregu , you are masters in science , will a 2K /4K resolution on small screen will damage our retina ?

    Retina is just a marketing term, a trademark by Apple, technically it means nothing :-)

    I wait for 64 bit Atom tablets with more than 2 GB RAM, then I think I will buy a tablet too. At least 10 inch though, I want to read papers on it.

    I think it's fun, playing with chemicals. Of course I am not a chemist, so I will never do the real fun things with chemistry, biology is mostly at physiological conditions. It can get very toxic though, and you don't want to have an infection with those cute bacteria.

    Morning folks. I figured I'd take a few minutes before I leave the house to post my Z Ultra mini review.

    "Stupid fast. Crazy sexy. Hot! Hot! Hot!"

    Now that I've finished channeling my inner BP, let's get to it. The phone is fast. Anyone who has use the 1520 can tell you how zippy the S800 chip is. Minimal to no lag at all. I think my favorite part about the phone is the screen. Since the Z series started, this is the first screen Sony has gotten right (the Z1Compact and the Z2 are the next good ones). While it has less PPI than those two screens, it is sharp, vibrant and very colorful. So sharp that sometimes my 8X feels a little too bright yet dull when I look at it right after using the Z Ultra.

    Pretty much the reviews were dead on. It is a big phone that it polarizing - either you love it or you find the damn thing unwieldy. Fortunately, I have big hands and I really appreciate how Sony managed to keep the thing thin, sexy, yet spread the weight around evenly. Maybe because I am careful with my phones, I have used it one handed so far and while I wouldn't recommend doing that, I never got a feel that it would slip from my hand. Love Sony's design language, so no arguments here. The Princely Purple actually pops really well and while the black is the sexiest unit for this phone, the Purple looks better than the white by miles in my eyes. I've put it in that passbook kinda case and it gives the phone a really nice even more premium feel. It fits in my slacks pocket comfortably, ableit I can only keep the Ultra as the only thing in that pocket. I haven't washed my phone yet to test out the water resistance, but it is coming at some point.

    Everything else is as advertised - Android is still Android, I still like Sony's skin. I bought the Euro version so I have all the needed LTE bands and the phone is fast, even in a ****ty coverage area like where I live.The audio is very nice - not as nice as the 8X, but a very nice compliment because the range of sound is very good. Only complaints - the SIM card tray is the cheapest piece of plastic I've ever seen - easily damaged if one is not careful. The camera is still crap, but I didn't buy it for that.

    All in all, I'm glad I bought it. It is the first Android phone I have bought that I don't want to root. And now for BP's favorite part...(shot on the 8X)
