Android at IFA 2017: What’s coming from LG, Samsung, Sony, and more!

Based in Berlin, Germany, IFA is one of the biggest tech trade shows around, and it’s also one of the oldest, with a 93-year history behind it. The first IFA was held way back in 1924. Six years later, the show was opened by the one and only Albert Einstein.

These days, IFA is a platform for just about everything with a chip or a radio antenna — connected gadgets, TVs, computers, wearables, and the nebulous mess known as  [Read More…]

Sony Xperia XZ1 leaks, looks remarkably like the current XZ

Sony’s next flagship looks very similar to the Xperia XZ.

Sony has a tendency to stick with one design for its flagships as long as it can. 2015’s Xperia Z4 had imperceptible differences compared to 2013’s Xperia Z. Sony tweaked its design language with the newer XZ series, and it looks like that design will carry forward.

@OnLeaks and Comapreaja have shared images of the alleged Sony Xperia XZ1, the sequel to the Xperia XZ. The device  [Read More…]

Sony’s Xperia XZ Premium is a great phone that is a bit on the spendy side.

Netflix HDR playback comes to the Sony Xperia XZ Premium

Netflix HDR supported devices is an exclusive little club, and it has a new member.

Netflix has been ridiculously picky about what devices and formats for ultra-high-definition it supports, and as such Netflix has been slow to allow it on any device, with the LG G6 being the sole phone supported for Netflix’s HDR playback… until now, that is. Another phone is crashing the party, and it’s the Sony XZ Premium.

Sony XZ Premium review: MrMobile’s mirror-plated time machine

The Sony Xperia XZ Premium is the first Sony smartphone to hit MrMobile’s review roster, and it’s not playing around. It’s not every day you review a phone with a Snapdragon 835 and a 4K HDR display crammed into an ostentatious and water-resistant mirrored chassis, after all. But I’ve always found 4K screens on smartphones to be serious overkill, and the XZ Premium’s high price combined with Sony’s bizarre legal troubles that force it to disable fingerprint scanners on  [Read More…]
