The Sony Xperia L2 is down to $170 ($50 off) at Amazon and B&H

Friday, November 30th, 2018

Late autumn is always a good time for bargains, especially if you're looking for a smartphone on the cheap. And while it's hardly a top performer, at a sale price of just $168.29 on Amazon, Sony's Xperia L2 certainly fits the budget bill.

The L2 sports eight- and 13-megapixel cameras on its front and back sides, respectively, as well as 32 gigs of internal storage, expandable via MicroSD cards of up to 256 gigabytes.

Leaked Sony Xperia XZ4 renders show 21:9 display and three rear cameras

Tuesday, November 27th, 2018

It's been scarcely three months since Sony launched a flagship phone, so clearly, it's getting ready to release another. A new leak purports to show renders of the upcoming Xperia XZ4, which looks like an evolution of the XZ3. The phone has more cameras, more display, but still no headphone jack.

The first thing you'll probably notice is the triple camera array on the back. We don't know what the sensors will do, but the XZ3 only had one sensor.

LineageOS drops support for 30 devices, including the Redmi Note 3 and Moto G4

Monday, November 26th, 2018

The LineageOS custom ROM used to support just about every phone imaginable, but lately the project has been going for quality over quantity. Oreo (15.1) builds have to fulfill stricter requirements to receive official status, and now Lineage is dropping support for 30 unmaintained phones and tablets.

Lineage recently announced that builds for a given device would be disabled unless the maintainer (the person porting the ROM to the device) regularly checks in.

Sony’s ridiculously expensive soundbar with built-in Chromecast is now slightly less ridiculous at $1,200 ($300 off)

Thursday, November 22nd, 2018

If you're willing to spend home theater-level pricing, but don't want to deal with a standalone speaker/receiver setup, super-expensive soundbars like Sony's 7.1.2-channel unit might be your figurative and literal jam. But if the original $1,500 asking price was just a bit too rich for your blood, the price has been dropped basically everywhere to $1,200.

It's an 800W, wireless soundbar with Dolby Atmos, 4K HDR, and HDCP 2.21 support. That extra ".2" in channel support means additional upwards source for sounds — though obviously, this is a soundbar, so that means it's bouncing sound off the ceiling.

Sony Xperia XZ2 is $530 ($170 off), XA2 Ultra $280 ($120 off), XZ3 $850 ($50 off) at B&H and other retailers

Thursday, November 22nd, 2018

Pricing aside, Sony phones are generally well-liked. That means that an event such as Black Friday could be the perfect time to pick one up. Currently, we're seeing some decent sales on the last-gen Xperia XZ2 and Xperia XA2 Ultra, with a $50 discount on the Xperia XZ3 as well, from multiple retailers.

Most retailers on this list are running the same sales, but for whatever reason, B&H is tacking on additional $70 and $60 clip coupons to the XZ2 and XA2 Ultra, respectively.

Sony’s noise-canceling WH-1000XM2 headphones are now $200 ($150 off) at Amazon, Best Buy, and more

Thursday, November 22nd, 2018

Sony's WH-1000XM2 wireless headphones debuted to rave reviews in 2017. It was praised for excellent sound quality, effective sound cancellation, and a comfortable fit — not to mention the fact that it was among the first to feature the Google Assistant. A new model, the WH-1000XM3, was  revealed this August as a follow-up to the popular headset, but the 2017 variant is still worth consideration, especially at its current $200 price point during the Black Friday sales week.

Every deal season, one thing you can depend on is that Amazon will place its first-party Kindle, Echo, and Fire hardware on discount. It's such a regular part of Amazon's sales that we often overlook it as expected, familiar, and therefore uninteresting. But if you're in the market for an Alexa-powered smart speaker, cord-cutting Fire TV recast DVR, or an Amazon Prime-compatible streaming device, now is the time to pick one up.

Unlocking the bootloader on Sony phones no longer wrecks the camera in Pie

Tuesday, November 20th, 2018

Sony has been kind enough to let Xperia device owners unlock their bootloaders for years. That's an option that fewer and fewer OEMs offer, but it comes with some very real drawbacks in Sony's case. Unlocking an Xperia device would clear all DRM keys, thus turning your camera into hot garbage. There's good news, though. It appears that the Android Pie update no longer cripples the camera on unlocked devices.
