I've just ordered one of these for myself, my Find 7a has the yellow tinted screen fault and will be going back shortly for a refund.

This is £314.99 from Amazon UK, probably the cheapest in the UK is PrePayMania at £307.98 (minus their 5% Quidco).

This is the EU version with LTE so is exactly the same as that from Amazon UK except that it might need a 2 pin adaptor for the charger. I believe Sony warranty is EU wide, if not you have 12 months I guess with Amazon.de. Amazon are very decent at returns etc.

A bargain at £245.98 or 307.31 Euros.

I used a zero commission card to pay so I don't know how Amazon's conversion works out if you want to pay in GBP, it will likely be a pound or two worse.

307.31 is with the shipping, the price listed on the site for just the item shipped within Germany is 299 Euros.

Black is £12.46 or 15.59 Euros more. Only the back is a different colour so it probably isn't worth paying for if you're putting it in a case.. just buy a black case if you want black!

£5 for a nice case: http://www.aliexpress.com/item/newest-brand-Nillkin-Flip-case-for-SONY-XL39H-for-Xperia-Z-Ultra-Stylish-Leather-Case-with/1459188433.html
http://www.nillkin.com/english/proshow.asp?mid=2&sid=0&tid=0&cid=1&scid=13&id=3551&page=1
The other Nillkin cases for it are nice too.

Magnetic charging cable is a must so you don't have to constantly open the waterproof Micro USB cover: e.g. http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Magnetic-USB-Charging-cable-Adapter-For-Sony-Xperia-Z1-Ultra-XL39H-Magnetic-USB-cable-charger-for/1708094470.html

NOW 306.99 FOR WHITE (STOCK 26TH JUNE OR 308.99 FOR BLACK (IN STOCK)), SO DELIVERED PRICE FOR WHITE HAS NOW RISEN FROM £245.58 TO £251.96, STILL A MUCH BETTER DEAL THAN ORDERING FROM WITHIN THE UK!

Edit 3rd July:
White no longer listed.

Price for black now £236.64 or 297.23 Euros with shipping, dispatched in 2 - 4 weeks unfortunately.

Great price!

Allows you to spend the difference on a sack trolley to carry this monster sized phone around!

Superb deal

plus a shame about the camera, don't buy this if you even sometimes use the camera

Looks a cracking price to be fair - just to clarify; what's the crack when ordering from Amazon.de? Do I have to pay more for postage and do I still get the same warranty if buying in uk?

EDIT - Re-read the post and answered my own questions lol.

Is the camera different to the z1? i thought they have the same sensors.
#5
Sensor's alright, backlit Exmor RS 8 Megapixel IIRC.
So will produce decent results for a phone in daylight. No flash. Colours a bit unnatural.
Not up to scratch compared to the rest of the spec.
See the camera section in this review for the lowdown: https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=iXPbq-PuqC8

same here

OG note still going strong after 2+ years, and still on the stock battery that gives 4 hours screen time

still got 2 new sealed original oem batteries bought directly from amazon, looks like im stuck with note for atleast another 2 to 4 years at this rate

I have the 3G not 4G version, fantastic small tablet.

the camera is OK in fair to good light, no flash is the problem, crazy given Sony should have had enough space!

magnetically-coupled charging cables are cheap enough on ebay; I use one in the car with a car cradle/dock (actually a nexus7 dock which happens to go small enough), then I can drop XZU into the cradle and attach power in well under 10s.

Only useful if they're coming over to visit the UK. If they shipped it as a gift you'd still get taxed by the Inland Revenue.

excellent phone, never skipped a beat for me and screen is superb. camera is certainly not the best but fine for snaps, which is really all your gonna take with any mobile phone anyway. also waterproof so perfect for reading a book at the bottom the pool. would recommend the magnetic charger someone mentioned above as it's a pain opening the flap every time you want to charge. I didn't use any case and the front and back remained unscratched after six months solid use. even adding a really thin case adds extra bulk that can turn this beast into a real pocket buster.

No, they have the same processor platform (Snapdragon 800) and share a few other features but unfortunately the cameras are different which I assume was to offset the cost of the larger and very pretty screen on the Z Ultra. It is frustrating as I love the phone otherwise, it's not just a bad camera but even for a phone camera it's poor - even the old 8MP camera on the first Galaxy Note was noticeably better.

Given the choice though I'd still buy the phone again and there's not any others I'd currently consider replacing it with. It pulls off the big size better than you'd expect as it's not as heavy as it feels it should be and it's thin for the size as well. The screen is beautiful and combined with the quick processor makes the device superb for everything, I was initially disappointed with the battery life until I realised how much more I was using the phone compared to the Note 1.

Would an Amazon.co.uk voucher work on the Amazon.de site?

Thinking of trading my iPad 2 and getting this.

Just thought of something- when you first switch this on, is the default language German? Because I don't know enough German is find the settings to switch it to English.

Does the magnetic charging cable or dock work if there is a case fitted.

I bought a Note 1 from Germany and it was in German out of the box but it was very easy to change it, I think it was the first question when you powered it up and although I can't remember the exact format it was designed to be easy to find your own language.

It depends on the case - the official dock comes with two adapters, one for the phone with a case and one without (the dock holds the phone at an angle so the adapter for the case is wider) so the dock can still be used with the official case on the Z Ultra. I haven't seen the wireless charging cable (only have the dock) but I'd assume as long as the case had sufficient clearance around the magnetic connector, the cable would work fine.

Thanks for the heads up...official case ordered.

Absolutely stone cold, seriously think very hard before taking this deal. You can get xperia z1 for 300-350 from multiple sellers on Google shopping, why spend 250 quid on a phone that's 2 generations old.
#29
Z1 launched in the UK 20/09/13, Z Ultra 13/09/13 (dates according to Wikipedia, I thought they both came out a couple of months earlier than that, dunno, not a year old yet anyway for sure) ... So the Z1 is a week newer.

Exactly the same CPU, GPU and OS. The Z1 has a better camera but much smaller screen and according to you is significantly more expensive.

2 generations behind?? have you got this confused with the original z? the ultra came out in july last year, not even a year old yet

besides, comparing this to the z1 or z2 is not wise, those are phones this is damn near a tablet

Same question as another poster above. Anyone know if you can use Amazon.co,uk gift credit on the Amazon.de site? I have around £40 in my Amazon.co.uk account, so would come in very handy :)

Also, is there potential to get stung with import duty when ordering from the Amazon.de store?

Thanks all.

No import duty within the EU :)

As for the vouchers, I don't think they are transferable though not entirely sure.

Mine just shipped.. City Link. So looks like they ship them here first hence the delay in dispatching.
