Phablets: Sony Xperia Z ultra vs. Samsung Galaxy mega 6.3

Large smart phones with large displays are currently in vogue: the so-called Phablets Sony Xperia Z Ultra and Samsung Galaxy mega 6.3 currently represent the cutting edge in terms of size. The very flat Sony Xperia Z ultra (6. 5mm) is a real feast for the eyes, the Samsung Galaxy mega thanks to lots of glass and aluminium 6.3 despite Samsung typical plastic handy and elegant feel.
