The Times of India - Sony's earlier phablet - Xperia Z Ultra - was a high-end device. It was a very good phablet but with a price of over Rs 40,000, it did not find many takers. Equally good devices were available at a lower price.
The Xperia T2 Ultra is Sony's second attempt at wooing consumers who want an XL size screen in their smartphones. But unlike the Z Ultra, T2 is not a flagship product. It is priced more modestly and packs in hardware that won't make you go wow. The goal is to sell a device that is value for money and not the one that is fastest, best looking and priciest. Well, in our opinion that is not a bad goal at all.
