Sony also had an entry in this market: the 6.4 inch Sony Xperia Z Ultra, which featured high-end specs (it was the first device with a Snapdragon 800 processor) in a slim, waterproof form-factor. But it was admittedly a premium device with a premium pr ...

Sony Xperia T2 Ultra Unboxing [Video]

The Sony Xperia T2 Ultra is a decidedly mid-range 6-inch smartphone from Sony, aimed at bringing the Z Ultra's form factor to a lower price point. In fact, it shares the same sort of relationship with the Z Ultra as Nokia's Lumia 1320 shares with the higher-end 1520; it even packs in many of the same hardware specifications as the Lumia 1320. A quad-core 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 CPU powers this device ...

Sony Xperia Z1 Compact Review

I fondly remember that day in the year of 2011 when I splashed out on my very first Android smartphone, the dinky little Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro. It had a 3-inch 320x480 display and it packed all the power of the then-flagship Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc into a tiny and cute side-slider with a wonderfully spacious, clicky keyboard. The fact that it distilled everything that was great about the Xperia Arc ...

Sony SmartBand Review

Sony has been no stranger to wearable devices; in fact, it was one of the pioneers in the field with the LiveView smartwatch which existed even before the term "smartwatch" was coined. However, the company has not quite found mass market success with their wearables even though they have continued to release entrants in the space year after year. Can the SmartBand turn the tide with its focus and simplicity ...

Sony Xperia Z1 Compact Unboxing and First Impressions [Video]

The Xperia Z1 Compact is a smartphone that has never really received the attention that it deserves. Launched shortly before the flagship Xperia Z2 was unveiled, it has had to sit in the shadow of its bigger brothers, every bit as capable as them but struggling to make itself seen and heard. However, I've been interested in this device ever since the beginning of the year and have had high expectations of i ...

Sony Xperia Z2 Review

Sony's had a rough history in mobile. In the glory days, they were neck-to-neck with Nokia, in terms of mobile innovation, and seeing their phones like the K750i being compared to the likes of Nokia's N95 and N82 were pretty commonplace. Since the rise of the iPhone though, Sony has struggled while other companies like Samsung came to dominate the smartphone market. But Sony evolved to compete, buying out t ...
