Not interested with the Samsung Galaxy S9? Does the Huawei P20 not light a fire in your loins? Well, there is good news because next week you’re going to have another brand new smartphone vying for the precious ringgits in your wallet. Who’s excited for the new Sony Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact?
When Apple announced the iPhone 7, they took a controversial and “courageous” move to remove the traditional 3.5mm audio jack. The decision to drop the old jack was said to be necessary as the port was analogue and outdated. They reckon that it is better if audio is pushed digitally through its lightning port or you can simply go wireless with their AirPods. Other smartphone makers have made a similar move in order to save on space or to go fully digital with active noise cancellation like HTC and Xiaomi.
When Sony introduced their latest Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact at MWC 2018, many didn’t expect them to ditch the headphone jack as well. Was it to save on space? Not really and the Xperia XZ2 is actually quite thick at 11.1mm. As a comparison, the previous XZ1 was much thinner at 7.4mm and that still came with a headphone jack.
I have a problem. It’s an incredibly first-world problem, because it’s one where no amount of gear is ever “enough”. Literally the week after I ordered my brand new Audio Technica ATH-M40X, I was already scouring the internet for a brand new pair of wireless headphones with active noise cancellation (ANC).
And it’s not like I’m some big audiophile. My ears are decidedly plebian in the sense that I know what I like and I know what I don’t — there isn’t really a super deep spectrum. Nevertheless, that didn’t stop me from wanting to get the best ones there are.
After weeks of reading, listening and researching, I managed to narrow down the list to a few prime candidates. Sony’s original MDR-1000X headphones were not at the top of the list. Then, everything changed when I got a hold of the WH-1000XM2.

In a world where the device you keep with you all day is devoid of a 3.5mm headphone jack, wireless headphones suddenly become far more attractive than they have been in the past — at least, for me. I’m currently living the dongle life, and let me tell you, it’s awful. Those nasty things are fragile, tiny and infuriating to use on a daily basis.
Bluetooth, then, looks like the most viable alternative. But when you buy Bluetooth headphones, you don’t just want plain old Bluetooth headphones. At least, not when you have the option to pick one up with state-of-the-art noise cancellation technology.
That, young grasshopper, is where Sony‘s stunning lineup of 1000X headphones come in.

If you’re looking for the latest flagship that runs on the very latest version of Android, the Sony Xperia XZ1 has finally arrived in Malaysia. It was recently announced just a few weeks back during IFA 2017 and it’s now officially launched on our shores with Android 8.0 Oreo running out of the box.
Fresh from IFA 2017, Sony Mobile appears to be bringing its latest Xperia XZ1 and XZ1 Compact into Malaysia very soon. These are their latest flagship smartphones that run on a top of the line Snapdragon 835 processor and both are running on the very latest Android 8.0 Oreo.

Announced earlier this year, Sony Mobile’s budget Xperia L1 is finally available in Malaysia. With consumers getting spoiled for choice under RM1,200, Sony Mobile thinks it may have a chance with its distinctive Xperia design.
Every once in awhile, a phone or gadget or device will come along that will completely rewrite the rulebook. You probably remember a lot of them from the game-changing likes of Apple’s original iPhone to the big revolution of Samsung’s first Galaxy Note.
The Sony Xperia XZs, though, isn’t one of them.
Just only a month after its announcement at MWC 2017, Sony has finally introduced its new Xperia XZs and Xperia XA1 smartphones in Malaysia. These are the latest from Sony’s new Xperia X series which aims to take photography to the next level.
