If you are rocking an Xperia Z3, Xperia Z3 Compact, or the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact and are in the right place, you can grab some free movies courtesy of Sony. The Japanese company has made three different movies available free of charge for the above mentioned devices, although the offer is only for those living in the US, UK, France and Spain.
Sony has taken the wrapping off a new camera sensor today that should point to the future of smartphone imaging in the near future. You may be thinking why a new Sony component would show the direction of all smartphone shooters, but the Japanese company is a chief supplier to many of its smartphone rivals with lenses and other camera parts.
Smartphones are expensive, especially if you want one of the premium examples on the market. However, if you bide your time there are always deals happening and who knows, you may be able to find the handset you wanted all along. HTC and Sony have a couple of bargains cooking at the moment if you want one of their high end devices.
Sony's new Xperia Z3 flagship has been spreading itself in the United States, while Verizon also come out with their own variation. The device has so far been locked down to carriers, but the Japanese company has now made it available completely unlocked via its Online Store. That means you can now grab one of the best smartphones right now completely carrier free and can then choose whatever network you prefer to run it.
Sony has issued a new update for its Xperia Z2 smartphone and the Xperia Z2 Tablet that brings some of the features found on the recently launched Xperia Z3 flagship products. The big news is the addition of the PS4 Remote Play feature in the update, something that landed on the Xperia Z3, Xperia Z3 Compact and Xperia Z3 Tablet back in September.
Sony has had some problems over the weekend as there have been question marks over the security and privacy on some of its Xperia smartphones. A Sony Xperia user found a folder for Chinese internet company Baidu on his device, and he learned that the "myXperia" app was pinging data to servers located in China.
Verizon and Sony announced the new Xperia Z3v a couple of weeks back, but far from being a true variant of the Japanese company's new flagship, the Z3v is more a re-tooled Xperia Z2. Putting that disappointment aside, the device is still very good and today Verizon has announced that the smartphone is available.
Sony may have only just started rolling out its new Xperia Z3 flagship, but we are already hearing plenty about the next version the Xperia Z4. Typically when rumors start for the next flagship device immediately after the launch of the latest model, we dismiss them, such as current iPhone 7 rumors for example. However, such is Sony's launch model, these rumors are actually worth paying attention to.
Sony was obviously watching Google's Android 5.0 Lollipop final release launch this week as the Japanese company has detailed its plans for the software, and boy are they robust. More than a few Sony handsets will be getting the bump to Lollipop as the company confirmed every device in its flagship Xperia Z range will be treated to the update.
Sony is taking its US strategy seriously this year and T-Mobile has confirmed that the company's Xperia Z3 flagship will be arriving on its network this month. That follows Verizon's news last week that it would offer the Xperia Z3v (a re-tooled Z2) for $199 on contract starting this week. It is also thought that Sprint will offer the Xperia Z3 too as T-Mobile is certainly not discussing the device as an exclusive.
