Sony is working on a ‘Connected Gym’ concept to track your gym workout

Monday, April 16th, 2018

In the age of the Internet of Things, where everything from a toaster to a vacuum cleaner is connected to the internet, going to the gym can often feel like a surprisingly disconnected experience. Many workout machines, such as those used for lifting weights, don't need to be upgraded with the same frequency or as many times as a phone or computer, so their useful lifespan can easily span multiple decades.

Sony Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact now up for pre-order in the US

Friday, April 13th, 2018

The Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact are arguably Sony's best-looking phones yet. Unveiled at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona in February, the latest Sony flagships have rear fingerprint sensors and sport 18:9 displays with far less bezel than we're accustomed to from Xperia devices. They both include the freshest Snapdragon 845 chip with 4GB or RAM and will ship with Android 8.0 Oreo.

I was impressed by them in my hands-on at MWC, especially in view of Sony finally embracing a more modern design aesthetic — even if the Compact is a little chunky.

Wednesday, April 11th, 2018

Sony unveiled its latest flagship smartphones at Mobile World Congress a few months back, and they look different for the first time in many years. Well, they look different compared to past generational updates from Sony. The Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact are still obviously Sony hardware, but they adopt an 18:9 screen ratio and a rear fingerprint sensor. The high price is still classic Sony, though.

We've got a full hands-on with the new Sony phones from MWC, but here's the gist.

[Deal Alert] Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact down to $399.99 ($200 off) at Amazon and Best Buy, $379.99 for pink on B&H

Wednesday, March 28th, 2018

The Pixel 2 has a 5.0" display, the Galaxy S8 a 5.8" unit (the 18:9 ratio skews that a bit), the P20 a 5.8-incher, and so on. Sony is the only holdout in the game with its 4.6" Xperia XZ1 Compact. If you long for a phone that you can easily use one-handed, this phone might be your match.
