Well, i bit the bullet today and finally emancipated myself from Apple.
Ordered a Sony Experia Z Ultra which will be waiting for me when i arrive back at work next week.
Was going to opt for a straight forward Experia Z but figured "Feck it, in for a centime, in for a Euro" and opted for the Experian Ultra.
What a (fecking massive) phone....when choosing accesories i picked out the back-pack straps and jumper cables
. Gonna be looking for a case for it tomorrow and hoping Samsonite has something to offer....
Strangely, the Ultra actually has a higher IP rating that the standard Experia Z
I will post some feedback once i've got the hang of it.
