Now that they’re normal, so too is the reduction in price on the big phones.

And six inches is definitely big. Offering a six inch screen, the Sony Xperia C5 Ultra is definitely one of the larger phones we’ve seen this year, bordering on being a tablet, not just because of its size, but because even Sony’s tablet software looks and performs just like one of its phones.

In essence, the C5 Ultra is a small tablet, and yet it’s also a very big phone, offering the best of both worlds for someone who wants just that.

Despite the excellent price, Sony hasn’t delivered the masterpiece you might expect, because the model Australians will be seeing just seems to lack the polished software you might expect
