Sony recently launched yet another mid-range phone, the Xperia T2 Ultra. Although the phone is not loaded up high on specs it does offer a delightful experience for mid-level users. The device is also available with a dual-SIM variant.
Although the Xperia T2 Ultra sports a look very similar to the other Sony smartphones, it uses a 6 inch display for a better viewing experience. It is fairly thinner than its predecessor, the Xperia T, with a mere thickness of 7.7mm. Its lightweight design makes it easy to handle the device even with a single hand. Sony offers the handset in 3 colors: purple,white and black.
Although the device only provice a meagre pixel density of 245ppi, the display should not be underestimated. Sporting a 720p triluminous display, it is designed on the same lines as the BRAVIA television using the mobile BRAVIA Engine 2. The triluminous display allows the device to display a greater range of colours giving a more natural viewing experience.
The BRAVIA Engine 2 produces a highly enhanced image by applying contrast enhancement, colour management, noise reduction and sharpness filter. With a pixel density of 245ppi, this device seems to have a pretty decent display.
Housing a 1.4 GHz Qualcomm® Snapdragon quad-core processor it is backed-up by 1GB RAM so allowing the device to handle multi-tasking. Also as the processor is asynchronous the cores can be started and stopped independently thus resulting in better battery life.
Loaded with a 3000mAh battery and backed up with a STAMINA mode gives a long battery life as a lot of unnecessary battery drainage is avoided. The smartphone provides 8GB internal memory expandable upto 32GB. The device also supports 4G connectivity enabling faster data transfer.
The Xperia T2 Ultra possesses a 13MP primary camera, LED flash and Exmor RS mobile image sensor so as to capture exceptional pictures. The camera also uses HDR and Superior Auto to enhance the image quality.
Superior Auto will adjust the camera settings according to the scene so that the best possible picture may be captured. Superior Auto also toggles HDR mode as per its requirement. HDR mode captures multiple images with varying exposures and then merges all the images into a single image. The secondary camera provided is a mere 1.1MP only to fulfill its basic purpose.
The Sony Xperia T2 Ultra has been launched at 25,990 Indian Rupees, the device seems to be pretty decent for the price it has been launched. Yeah, there may be issues with multi-tasking due to 1GB of RAM, also high end gaming may be a let down.
The Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 seems to be in danger with the release of the T2 Ultra. The Grand 2 features a quad core processor coupled with 1.5GB of RAM and 5.25 inches display. Well it is up to you if you want a giant beast with mediocre tech specs or a smaller version of it with slightly better specs.
With competitors like the Moto X and the Nexus 4, this device seems to stand out as this is a dual sim smartphone. If multi sim is not one of your necessary requirements, then you could consider opting for the Moto X.
