Anyway, for all you keeners out there that simply must have the latest and greatest, largest ‘smartphone’ on the market, look no further than the Xperia Z Ultra!

For those of you keen on getting something with the Snapdragon 800 under the hood, hold on for LG’s G2, which we’ll be examining in full detail come August 7. The next device that we will likely see is one that a lot are excited for – the Galaxy Note 3.

What’s it going to be guys? Did Sony push things a bit too far with their Xperia Z Ultra? Excited for LG’s G2? Think the G2 serves as the basis for the Nexus 5? And any Galaxy Note 3 lovers in our midst? I know you’re there. Though, make no mistake – the Xperia Z Ultra is an absolute beast of a device, and one that’s likely to capture more than a few hearts.
