Sony Xperia T2 Ultra stands at 165.2x83.8x7.7mm, which is more than a centimeter shorter and nearly as much narrower than the 6.4" Xperia Z Ultra, but a millimeter thicker. With a smaller classy screen and lack of water protection, the T2 Ultra is 40g lighter at 172g - though probably losing the sheet of glass at the back contributes the most.

Design, build quality and handling

The Sony Xperia T2 Ultra may have lost the water and dust resistance, but looks no worse than its premium sibling. The OmniBalance design has been the defining feature of the entire Xperia lineup and the T2 Ultra got the same treatment - within its own budacquire of course. What we mean is the rear finish - no glass here, plastic instead.

The Xperia T2 Ultra's entire front is naturally occupied by the massive 6" display, while the non-removable back cover is made of glossy black plastic that will acquire covered smudges in no time. Probably the white or purple paintjob will be less plagued by this.

Fingerprints aside, the reflective black finish, the all-glass front and the familiar one-piece matte framing work well together for excellent looks, modern and stylish.

Handling the Xperia T2 Ultra

The Sony Xperia T2 Ultra is huge and there is no point denying that. The build quality is still top notch though, and while the slippery back may harm the handling, the matte sides offer enough grip. The T2 Ultra is a centimeter shorter and narrower than the Z Ultra, a fine deal lighter and easier to operate with one hand.
