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.

Size doesn't matter ;-)

I've had the Galaxy 4 for a couple of weeks now. It's huge compared to a standard phone, bigger than the old Galaxy I had and the iPhone 4. But here's the thing, it's thin and it's light. It will fit in any pocket and you won't know it's there - fantastic in a suit pocket, just as happy in a pair of levis.

And what a great phone!
