Deal: £440 Sony Xperia Z Ultra

E_cell sells the Sony Xperia Z Ultra, which was unveiled only a few weeks ago at IFA in Germany, for £440 including free delivery and 440 Nectar points. That is around 25 per cent less than the recommended selling price of that phablet, which might sound suspicious (given that it has only been around for a month) but can be explained by the fact that it lacks what many will see as a big drawback.

This particular model, otherwise known as the C6802, doesn't come with 4G connectivity. Other than that, it is similar to the 4G model that is on sale in the UK. You get a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC clocked at 2.2GHz, 2GB of RAM, 16GB onboard storage, a 6.44in full HD display with Triluminos and X-Reality for mobile technologies, an 8-megapixel rear camera with Exmor RS technology, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and a massive 3,000mAh battery.

As for the two other high-end Xperia handsets on the market (the Z and the Z1), the Z Ultra comes with IP55 and IP58 ratings which means that it is both water proof and dust proof.
