Hi @Andrew B, the Z Ultra is also water- and dust-resistant like the other Z series devices. Some of the office crew here prefer it to the Note 3, which is saying a lot. But it's hard to compare phablets when one has a stylus and one does not. Depends if you like a stylus I guess! The Z Ultra's camera is also pretty good and the battery life is commendable too @imanitta.

Hey @imanitta, we haven't done any battery comparison between the two devices yet, but the Z Ultra's 3,050 mAh battery reportedly performs very well compared to a lot of newer devices. Compared to the Note 2 I'm not completely sure though although GSMArena gave the Note 2 battery a score of 69 hours compared to the Z Ultra's 52 hours.

Hi @MasteramiR, there's plenty of good office suite apps out there. Start off with Quickoffice because it is free and pretty decently featured. Then there's Kingsoft Office, Open office, MobiSystem OfficeSuitePro, Documents ToGo and plenty of Play Store recommendations. Some of these you can free versions of, but if you're looking for full functionality you'll have to pay eventually. I installed three different paid office apps and between the three of them got what functions I needed but none of them had it all.

Hi @imanitta, there sure is. There's a YouTube video for vRoot which came from XDA Developers, but it has a debatable IMEI storing message pasted across it now, so I'd perhaps be a little wary. The easiest method in my opinion is to just download OneClickRoot and follow the steps on the install page: install the program, connect your Z Ultra, enable USB debugging on your Z Ultra and then run the program and click Root Now.
