Sony Xperia Z5 is the best mobile camera according to DxOMark

Posted:  October 2, 2015   By:    1 comment   


In our most recent camera shootout, we tested the best Sony had to offer, which at the time was the Xperia M5, that placed 7th out of 10, overall. Worrying for Sony, who had relative success in supplying cameras to other flagships (iPhones, Samsungs and etc); success that has not streamed down to their own phone cameras, at least when field tested. A new change comes in the form of the latest Sony Xperia Z5 line, that’s been tested by the guys at DxOMark, showing a vast improvement.

Sony’s Xperia Z5 Premium future-proof for 4K but will display mainly in 1080p

Posted:  October 2, 2015   By:    No comments   


IFA brought some great devices, but at the same time Sony was busy as well releasing their latest smart phones and the Xperia Z5 Premium was one of them. What blew most people away was the fact that Sony decided to pack a 4K display on the 5.5-inch device – a first in the smartphone industry. But it certainly isn’t cheap because native 4K content isn’t easy to find. Sony’s latest statement answers some questions but we’ll have to see how well it attempts to levitate this problem.

Samsung Galaxy View big on screen but half-way decent on specs?

Posted:  October 2, 2015   By:    No comments   

Teased during the Unpacked event that Samsung had in the heart of the Big Apple, the Samsung Galaxy View from what we could tell was big. Officially there was no mention on screen size but they said it was all about a larger viewing experience. Possibly occupying a place in our dwellings but not moving around as much as smaller tablets. Spotted on GFXBench benchmarks, we now have a rough idea of what this device is going to be.
