Sony has announced a smaller, more compact, version of the flagship Xperia 1 II. The Xperia 5 II retains almost all of the flagship features, and adds a 120Hz display.
Sony has had a pretty torrid time of late. The Xperia 1 II may be the phone to turn the tide, with the company having worked hard to improve the camera experience. Given Sony is responsible for making the majority of image sensors used in other handsets, which then go… [Click for more]
As ever, Sony has no idea on naming products. It has today launched the second editions of its Xperia 1 and Xperia 10 range, named the Xperia 1 II and 10 II respectively. It seems Sony doesn’t consider how products are searched for, how SEO works, or indeed how URLs… [Click for more]
Sony has launched a smaller brother to accompany its flagship Xperia 1. The Xperia 5 drops the screen down from 6.5-inches to 6.1-inches, but continues to offer premium features. The handset will be available to buy from next month, with pre-ordering opening in a couple of weeks. Like the Xperia… [Click for more]
Sony has today launched 3 new Xperia phones; the Xperia 10, Xperia 10 Plus, and a flagship Xperia 1. The latter comes with the world’s first 4K OLED display, with HDR and a 21:9 ratio display. Well, in fact all three phones have gone with the same 21:9 ‘CinemaWide’ display… [Click for more]
2018 is the year that Sony Mobile hopes to get back into a game it once used to dominate. The XZ2 and XZ2 Compact introduces an all-new design language, banished bezels (well, partly) and some world-firsts thrown in for good measure. There’s no arguing that for many years, every new… [Click for more]
It’s odd that Sony doesn’t seem interested in using optical image stabilisation (OIS) on its smartphones. Perhaps it’s to avoid losing sales of other cameras from Sony, but whatever the reality, it just seems rather stupid to me. But, Sony has for some time offered software stabilisation and on the latest… [Click for more]
What to say? Why? Yes, that’s probably all that needs to be said. Why Sony? Not only will a Snapdragon 810 powered phone trying to drive that many pixels probably run hotter than the sun, but now you’ve effectively forced every other manufacturer to go down the 4K route too…. [Click for more]
Last September, I wrote that Sony Mobile was seeking to stop releasing a new handset every six months in favour of an annual release schedule, but with the mention that it still needed something as a go-between to bridge the gap from the current Z3.
One thing I never liked about the Xperia Z2 was the, frankly, awful sound if you were recording a video in a noisy environment – such as a gig. But the Z3 and Z3 Compact came along with a new option to set the microphone gain, and now with the pending update… [Click for more]
I promised more photos from the Xperia Z3, and here are over 100 pictures, which include indoor, outdoor, daylight, night and near total darkness situations.
Having just received a Sony Xperia Z3 to review, the first thing to do was get out and take some photos.
A new flagship every six months? Par for the course for Sony Mobile, but it seems that might be about to change in 2015.
Our friends at Btekt have been hands-on with some of the new Sony devices and posted their videos already, even as the products are still being announced at IFA.
Not long to go until all the new Xperia devices are announced, along with a new QX range of attachable camera lenses, and new wearables are unveiled. But, for now, here are some official press photos that were obtained by Xperiablog.net ahead of the press event that can be watched here…. [Click for more]
Sony will unveil its latest range of flagship Xperia devices at IFA next week, thought to be the Xperia Z3, Z3 Tablet Compact, and Z3 Compact.
In another of my camera tests, I’ve decided to pitch the new Nokia Lumia 930 against the Sony Xperia Z2. I will be doing some daylight tests of course (and tests of the video recording capabilities), but to start with I captured a mix of dusk/night shots, shots with flash, plus some… [Click for more]
