Phablets, which tried to bridge the gap between a smartphone and tablet, were as expensive as flagship devices once upon a time. Slowly and steadily, at least in India, phablets piqued the interest of buyers and created inroads into the market. This rise prompted manufacturers to shed some features and make their products more budget friendly. Many companies latched on to this opportunity early on, but Sony has joined this bandwagon only recently.

Sony’s top-end phablet, the Xperia Z Ultra, now has a cheaper alternative in the form of the Xperia T2 Ultra. It is smaller, sleeker, accepts two SIMs, and has stripped down features. More importantly, this six-inch budget phablet faces the mammoth task of proving itself against the competition in a fairly crowded price band. Our review will help us find out if it manages that feat.

T2 Ultra follows the same design pattern that Sony is using in high-end range of Z smartphones. It is a sleek, slim and good looking device. The difference between T2 Ultra and other high-end Sony smartphones is the build material. The high-end devices like Xperia Z1 use metal body and a glass back cover. T2 Ultra has a plastic shell, albeit the one that is so glossy that it looks like glass. But the build quality and finishing is top notch. There are no loose parts and the device doesn’t look or feel cheap. Another difference is that unlike high-end Xperia devices, T2 Ultra doesn’t have water or dust resistant body.

The dual-SIM phablet has been especially designed for the Indian market and is tipped as the successor to the Xperia T. It comes with a 1.4GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 (MSM8928) processor under its hood. The processor has been coupled with 1GB RAM.

Xperia T2 Ultra Dual has a massive 6-inch display that comes with Sony’s Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2. It comes with Android 4.3 (Jelly Bean) out of the box and could be in line for a KitKat update too.

Connectivity features loaded with T2 Ultra Dual include Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, NFC, GPS and 3G. Surprisingly though, the phablet does not support LTE. Sony has loaded the Xperia phablet with 13MP primary camera with LED flash and 1.1MP front camera. To phablet has been fitted with a powerful 3600 mAh battery.
