There are some posts about that. Anyways yuo are in the Xperia forum so you can imagine the answers...I had NOTE 1 and Note 2 and tested Note 3...the Ultra just captured me from the start. I do not see a single reason to go back to Note 3 unless you really love the spen that much, love having extra batteries around or cannot handle the Ultra size.
Cant think of anything else...but I love my Ultra lol

Pretty much this. Note 3 if you want the S-Pen or the Ultra if you want the "waterproofness" (funny looking word, but it is indeed a word ) and build quality.

Build quality is better on xzu battery isn't bad. But no flash. And not sure if note 3 has ir blaster but xzu doesn't which is annoying.

I just sold my Note 3 to get the Ultra last week. For indoor use, the Note 3 camera kinda sucks. Battery life is so-so, only lasts about a day. Build quality on Note 3 feels cheap compared to Ultra. I was never in love with Note 3, it's really just the same old plastic Samsung phone with Touchwiz.

If you have 2 hours, you can see the videos from Erica Griffin. She goes into everyday usage of both phones. In the end she moved from the Ultra to the Note 3. Here are the links:

Well considering her size...even the Note 3 could feel way big huge for her.

It's her preferences ofc, plus if you look at her impression about xzu, it is clear that she likes xzu as her daily driver before going with note 3. And plus who doesn't love a new more expensive gadget hey? yeah the note 3 experience is a bit more complete (sans the real estate of the screen that xzu offered which she like the most about xzu) but that doesn't mean that xzu is a loser compared to note 3, no, far from it. It's just that they were built for different speciality.

I would change my Ultra for the next ultra and nothing else. Every time I see a Note 3 or someone holding it I can't seem to figure out if it's really a Note 3 or a Note 2 or a GS4. It just seems the same phone with some new tweaks is all.
Don't misunderstand me, I had a GS3 and loved it, and last year you could spot a GS3 right away, people here had an iPhone, or a GS3.
With the Ultra you stand out from the crowd, and not only for the sheer size, but also for everything else.
Somebody might mock you for the lack of flash or for the impossibility of changing batteries, but deep down you see most people love it and envy your big toy.
But, more importantly, it's a fantastic beast, it doesn't do anything slowly, it simply works and the stock ROM is the most beautiful I've ever tried.
My 2 cents.

@LordManhattan I must now confess. I miss my xzu I've been without it since Friday. Sony received it yesterday and a 're supposidly going to check whether my stated problems are covered by warranty. ( I hope they are ) before I sent it I didn't double check boot loader after ta restore. But I think it's quite rare that it would still be unlocked.
Anyway after using my HTC one since I've been without it I've now decided I'm gunna stay with xzu and not get HTC one max.
You got your phone back yet?
