The Xperia Z Ultra wins the processor battle
Wow ... just wow
Gizmag compares the specs (and other features) of the Xperia Z Ultra and Galaxy Note 2.
RAM is even
The Xperia has the newer version of Android ... for now
The lack of larger storage options for the Ultra could scare off some customers
Sony says you can use a pencil on the Ultra's screen
The Xperia Z Ultra is water- and dust- resistant
The Ultra is 18 percent heavier
Both devices will use LTE, provided your carrier provides it

Let's take a look, as we compare the two gigantophones from Sony and Samsung.
