Caveats are gone, so let’s start looking at Sony’s phones again.

Sony ups its selfie game with the Xperia XA2 and Xperia XA2 Ultra

Sony today at CES 2018 unveiled two new middle-range phones from the XA line – the Xperia XA2 and Xperia XA2 Ultra – which bring some interesting capabilities to the table, especially in the selfie department.

Sony discovered to be working on Xperia XA2 Ultra

Spoiler alert – it has a big screen.

A lot of midrange handsets were released in 2017, but for those that love big displays above all else, one of your best options was the Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra.

Deal: Sony Xperia XZs on sale for $399 ($200 off)

A good phone for the right person.

Back in April, Sony launched the Xperia XZs. The XZs first hit virtual store shelves with a steep price tag of $ 700, and when you combined that with the XZ Premium that made it obsolete just a couple months later, the XZs became a pretty tough sell. However, with a new discount on the phone currently available through Amazon, it might actually be worth checking out now.

The XZs’s  [Read More…]

Sony Xperia XZ1 coming to Canada through Bell and Freedom Mobile

Fingerprint sensor in tow, the Xperia XZ1 is coming to Canada.

It’s Sony’s best phone ever, and even without a fingerprint sensor earned a recommendation from our own Andrew Martonik — despite its $ 699 price.

Now we’re hearing that Sony’s 5.2-inch flagship is coming to Canada on October 26 through carriers Bell and Freedom Mobile. Pricing and availability will be shared at a later date, but given its near-$ 700 U.S. price tag it’s safe to  [Read More…]

Sony Xperia XZ1 review: Solid, opinionated and lovably flawed

We’ve seen it all before, yet our interest is still piqued.

The quick take

Sony’s Xperia XZ1 once again offers lustworthy design and hardware quality that focuses on style rather than ergonomics and screen-to-body ratios, and it absolutely works. With top-tier specs, the Android 8.0 software absolutely screams — and despite having a small battery, longevity is excellent. But for a $ 699 phone, the XZ1’s 1080p screen is just average, and its camera still doesn’t match  [Read More…]
