Sony’s budget Xperia L3 is the latest to leak ahead of MWC unveiling

Friday, February 15th, 2019

We know a fair bit about Sony's plans for Mobile World Congress by now, including the launch of a new flagship in the shape of the Xperia XZ4 (which may end up being renamed for the 10th anniversary of the Xperia brand) and two mid-range phones. We've also been hearing about another budget model called the Xperia L3, which we're now getting a look at for the first time.

According to WinFuture, the follow up to last year's Xperia L2 will have a 5.7-inch 18:9 display — so not quite as tall and skinny as the purported 21:9 screens on the other upcoming Sony devices.

[Update: Renamed Xperia 10, Plus variant appears] Sony Xperia XA3 renders reveal notchless 21:9 display, dual rear cameras

Thursday, February 14th, 2019

Basically every flagship these days uses an 18:9 display, with some companies even opting for slightly taller 18.5:9 and 19:9 ratios. Apple's iPhone X even has a 19.5:9 display. But Sony decided that none of that was enough, opting for a super tall 21:9 ratio on the Xperia XA3 according to these leaked press renders.

Unlike many other phones, the XA3 has neither a notch nor a hole-punch; it simply has a standard bezel up top.

Sony Q3 financial results show continued mobile losses

Friday, February 1st, 2019

Sony has never been a top Android phone maker, but it's been trying for a long, long time. As the smartphone market plateaus, Sony is losing money on mobile quarter after quarter, and the most recent one is no exception. While Sony overall made money at the end of 2018, the mobile division is still a loser.

Sony's fiscal year starts in April, so the new results are for its third quarter, during which the company made 377 billion yen ($3 billion).

Sony’s excellent WH-1000XM3 ANC Bluetooth headphones are $292 ($58 off) at MassGenie

Friday, January 25th, 2019

Sony has been producing noise-cancelling headphones for some time now, and the WH-1000XM3 is its best offering in that category yet. Its biggest downside is price — at $350, I personally think these headphones are worth every penny, but there's no denying they're expensive. For those of you who've been waiting for a deal, MassGenie is currently offering them for $291.99, which is $58 off the MSRP.

We recently reviewed the 1000XM3 and found it to be a highly competent set of headphones.

Sony is one of the best OEMs around when it comes to updating its smartphones in a timely fashion, but the company's smart TVs are another story. Even though Android 9 Pie was released five months ago, and Android Q is on the horizon, Sony is just now rolling out Oreo to some of its smart TVs.

Android TV 8.0 Oreo is making its way to 24 Sony TVs, released from 2016 to 2018.

Monday, January 14th, 2019

Sony's phones have been on sale all over the place lately. Last week, we reported that there were price drops on a number of Xperia devices at several retailers. At the time, the premium Xperia XZ3 was $100 off its $900 MSRP. Now, it's fallen even further at B&H, currently going for $730.

The XZ3 has all the trimmings of a modern, high-end Android device: a six-inch, 1440p display; Snapdragon 845; glass construction with wireless charging; and a 19-megapixel rear camera.

Review: Sony’s $350 WH-1000XM3 headphones live up to the hype

Sunday, January 13th, 2019

In today's $350 wireless, ANC-equipped over-ear headphones space, there are two primary competitors: Bose's QuietComfort 35 II and Sony's WH-1000XM3. Bose has long been championed as the king of the segment by many, but it seems impossible to talk about the QC35 II these days without someone butting in about how the identically-priced 1000XM3 is superior. After some time with the 1000XM3, I understand why everyone has been talking about them.
