Unlike what B&H would like you to believe, the Sony Xperia X hasn't retailed for $399 in a long time. Actually, it's been hovering around the $300 mark since the end of 2016 and has recently dipped to and stayed at $250 on Amazon. However, if B&H wants to call this a DealZone deal, then we shall call it a DealZone deal, even if it's only $20 less than other stores.

V-Moda Crossfade 2 Wireless review: Improved in every way except price

Monday, July 17th, 2017

Since my introduction to the brand a couple of years ago, V-Moda has quickly become one of my favorite audio companies. Solid sound and performance, paired with impeccable build quality and distinctive styling make the company's products easy to like and recommend. I thoroughly enjoyed the Crossfade wireless headphones when I reviewed them a year ago, and though I had a few small issues with the headphones, I was impressed overall.

Friday, July 14th, 2017

Back in February, Sony announced a pair of "super mid-range" phones - the XA1 and XA1 Ultra. Both phones are powered by a MediaTek Helio P20 processor and have a nearly-identical design. The XA1 arrived in the United States in May, costing $299. Now the XA1 Ultra has arrived stateside for a hundred dollars more.

Xperia XZ Premium proves to be the most durable Sony phone yet in JerryRigEverything test

Monday, July 10th, 2017

Sony has maintained the same basic design language for years, but a number of its phones have barely squeaked by in the JerryRigEverything durability testing. What about the new Xperia XZ Premium? It has premium right in the name, and Sony is asking for a very premium $800 for it. This phone fairs quite well overall.

Past Sony phones have exhibited a number of issues in JerryRigEverything videos. For one, the camera lenses were easily scratchable plastic.

Sony to shut down music recognition service TrackID on September 15, recommends Shazam instead

Monday, July 3rd, 2017

There's Shazam, there's SoundHound, there's Google's "what's this song?" and if you have a Sony device, there's TrackID. It's Sony's music recognition service that a lot of users defaulted to because it was preloaded on their devices and because it did a decent job of telling you the title of the song and its artist, while also providing a way to listen to songs, watch their videos, check artist biographies, and save your discovered tunes to Spotify.
