There’s one thing that Sony is very good at and it’s the ability to create flagship phones that are truly compact. Beginning from the Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray and then continuing with the Xperia Z Compact series, Sony is able to fill a niche where people want the best phones that can really fit comfortably in your hands. This breaks the norm where you have to accept a larger screen if you’re looking for a flagship phone.
On the last Xperia X Compact, it was quite an underwhelming phone as it gets a mid-range hardware and it lacks Sony’s signature water resistance. After realising that they can’t sell mediocre phones at a premium, Sony is trying to make things right with their upcoming Xperia XZ1 Compact.
Sony appears to be releasing yet another Xperia flagship during IFA 2017. After introducing the Xperia XZs earlier this year, Sony will announce a new successor that’s expected to be called the Xperia XZ1.
If you’re hoping that Sony will do something drastic when it comes to design, get ready for some disappointment.
Almost everyone is having a price cut and Sony Mobile is no exception. The Sony Xperia XZ and XZs flagships are now more affordable with price reductions as much as RM500 off.
After seeing the stunning piece of art that is LG’s Signature W7 4K OLED TV, I didn’t think I’d be impressed by another TV anytime soon. Today, though, I spent some time with Sony‘s new flagship Bravia A1 HDR OLED TV and let’s just say I stopped and stared.
The flagship smartphone gave every Sony Mobile fan a shiver of excitement has finally landed on our shores and it only took them a couple of months. On paper, it has all the flagship-level specifications one would need to compete with the very best, which is a good thing.
But, is the Sony Xperia XZ Premium really worth RM100 more than what is arguably the best Android smartphone in the market right now? Well, I try to find out.

When Sony introduced its new Xperia X series last year, we thought Sony had completely gone bonkers. It replaced its high-end Xperia Z line with products that are severely overpriced for what it was offering.
The Xperia X, for example, was doomed from the start. It’s a mid-range smartphone that went on sale for RM2,499 in Malaysia. It had a Snapdragon 650 processor, a 23MP camera that doesn’t shoot in 4K and it isn’t even water resistant. Nobody is going to pay flagship price for that. The RM1,999 Xperia X Compact didn’t fare much better either.
During its investor relations event, Sony appears to have learnt their lesson and they are abandoning this whole “premium standard” category altogether.
Sony Mobile has finally launched the Xperia XZ Premium in Malaysia. This shiny looking flagship is the world’s first smartphone with a 4K HDR display and it’s also the world’s first to feature a 960fps slow-mo camera using a memory stacked camera sensor.
Sony’s premium flagship, the Xperia XZ Premium is finally coming to Malaysia. Succeeding the Xperia Z5 Premium, this is the world’s first smartphone to feature a 4K HDR display and it’s capable of shooting slow-mo videos at 960fps.
UPDATE: We’ve updated the guide! Now there are four brand new smartphones for you to choose from.
It’s that time of the year again. Although a whole host of new smartphones have been launched, a lot of the conversation is about the smartphones at the top end of the market. “What about those on a tight budget?”, you must be wondering, “Do tech sites even care about those of us who can’t spend a month’s salary on a device?”, you’re probably thinking.
Well, we care. So, here are some of the best phones you can get for under RM1,200.
