Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is one of Samsung’s first devices to break away from the regular all plastic finish and features faux leather back, which makes it look and feel much better in the hands. Sony Xperia Z Ultra adopts its design from Xperia Z with solid glass for the front and back. While Galaxy Note 3 weighs 168 g, Xperia Z on the other hand weighs around 212 g.

At the bottom, Galaxy Note 3 has an uncovered microUSB port, a microphone, loudspeaker and S-Pen compartment, while Xperia Z ultra has only the loudspeaker. There is a 13 megapixel camera with an LED flash below it on Galaxy Note 3, while there is an 8 megapixel camera on Xperia Z Ultra. The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 has a 5.7 inch Full HD Super AMOLED display with a pixel density of 386ppi, while the Xperia Z Ultra has a 6.44 inch Full HD Triluminous display with a pixel density of 344 PPI.

Galaxy Note 3 has better sharpness, better brightness and better viewing than Xperia Z ultra. However, the display on Xperia Z ultra has true to life colours and thus gives it a better display quality.
