Sony Mobile has already introduced three new smartphones earlier this month at CES (Consumers Electronics Show), but the Japanese company saved the best devices for Mobile World Congress (MWC), which will debut late next month.
One of the most expected Sony smartphones is probably the Xperia XZ Pro, the best of the best, top-of-the-line, one to rule them all, and possibly the company’s most expensive handset. The Xperia XZ Pro will be unveiled slightly ahead of MWC, but it will be showcased at the trade fair in February/March.
According to a leaked document, …
After Xperia XZ Premium, two other Sony smartphones are getting Android 8.0 Oreo update, the standard Xperia XZ and Xperia XZs. Both were launched about a year ago and will probably receive one more major Android OS update next year if Sony wants to keep them relevant.
If you own either of the two smartphones, then you should be looking for a new software update with firmware version 41.3.A.0.401, which weighs in at around 1.2GB.
As mentioned by Sony, the update includes Reminders, very useful for unfinished work, as well as Xperia Actions, suggested settings based on your usage. …
One of Sony’s 2017 flagships, the Xperia XZ Premium is now on sale for less than $600. Originally launched on the market for $800 outright, the smartphone’s price dropped down to $700 back in August.
However, for a limited time, Sony Xperia XZ Premium is available for purchase for just $550 at Best Buy. Customers can choose between any of the three colors listed at the US retailer: Bronze Pink, Luminous Chrome and Deepsea Black.
If you order one today, the phone should be shipped by December 4. By the way, shipping is free according to Best Buy. There’s one …
Although it’s not really a good idea to go on a shopping spree just a few weeks before Black Friday, there may be some good deals out there that won’t available anymore at the end of the month.
If you’re looking for a mid-range smartphone that costs less than $350, the Xperia XZ is a solid choice if you don’t want to wait until next week for better deals on other brands.
Sony Xperia XZ (F8331) is now on sale at B&H for $70 off, so you’ll be paying $305. An almost 20% discount on the last year flagship is decent enough, especially that it brings the …
The Xperia XZ Premium is the first Sony smartphone to have received the Android 8.0 Oreo update, but other devices are expected to follow soon. However, the update contained a fix for a known camera issue that brought another problem with the camera.
Although it addressed the Xperia XZ Premium camera distortion issues, Android 8.0 Oreo broke the camera sensor’s functionality, which meant that the RGBC-IR and ToF (Laser AF) features were not working within the parameters.
In other words, most of the pictures captured with the Xperia XZ Premium were blurry …
Launched in Japan last month, the red version of Sony’s
Xperia XZ Premium can now be bought in the US, where Amazon is selling it
unlocked alongside the phone’s other three color variants (black, chrome, and
pink – all available since June).
It doesn’t look like the red (or rosso) Xperia XZ Premium that’s sold
in the US
comes with Android 8 Oreo out of the box, instead running Android 7 Nougat. In

Alluring color aside, Sony’s new red smartphone doesn’t
differ from the other color variants of the Xperia XZ Premium. …
Last month, one of Sony’s older flagship smartphones, namely the Xperia XZ was on sale at Amazon for $400. Considering the phone was launched in the United States last year for $700, we thought that was a pretty good deal for Sony fans.
One month later, Amazon and B&H have decided the Xperia XZ must be put on sale once again, but for an even lower price. Starting this weekend, Sony Xperia XZ can be had for just $315 at either of the two US retailers.
The unlocked model comes with US warranty, but it will only work on GSM carriers in the country (so no …
Four of Sony’s recent high-end smartphones – the Xperia XZ1,
XZ1 Compact, XZ Premium, and Xperia XZs – feature rear cameras with lenses that
are a bit wider than on most smartphones. While this means you can capture more
of your surroundings in just one shot, it also means photos can exhibit some
visible perspective distortion.
Plenty of Sony fans have been complaining about the
distortions that the new Xperia cameras are producing, and, thankfully, Sony
now has a fix for the problem.
The fix comes in the form of a software update,
and includes a “Correction for …
