Sony has added a new feature to its recent Xperia mobile devices called My Xperia Theft Protection or MXTP, it’s present in devices like the Xperia Z4 Tablet, Xperia C4, Xperia Z4/Z3+ and the Xperia M4 Aqua. The feature provides users with bootloader level security thus making it impossible for someone to wipe the device or flash a new ROM without first entering the required credentials.

Sony Xperia Z3+ And Z4 Look Easy To Repair

There might be overheating issues where the Xperia Z3+ and Xperia Z4’s processors are concerned, but you cannot deny that these two flagship smartphones happen to be one of the better looking ones around, not to mention boasting of high end hardware specifications that are well worth checking out. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SoC hums along nicely to deliver high end performance without batting an eyelid, and both handsets have […]


Xperia Devices No Longer Support PS3 Controller

It looks like when it comes to the latest round of flagship devices from Sony, the Sony Xperia Z3+ as well as the Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet will no longer offer support for the PlayStation 3 DualShock 3 controller. This would mean that the solitary controller that both of these flagship devices from Sony support would be the DualShock 4, and needless to say, you can tell from the name […]


Android M Developer Preview Prepped For Selected Xperia Handsets

This year’s Google I/O saw the official announcement of Android M, which proved to be one of the highlights, for sure. That was pretty much in the same league as the reveal of Android Lollipop in the previous year, and while the latest version is not quite as large or major an update as Android 5.0 Lollipop proved to be, it still came with a fair number of interesting features […]

Xperia Z5 Should Be New Sony Flagship

So we have seen how Sony rolled out the Sony Xperia Z3+ this week via an announcement, and interestingly enough, the Sony Xperia Z3+ happens to be the global version of the Sony Xperia Z4. They are essentially the same device which the world first saw as it launched in Japan, and you can be quite sure that a certain degree of confusion is bound to arise from this situation […]


Sony Xperia Z Range Receives Android Lollipop At Last

Better late than never, or so the adage goes. I suppose that works best if we are talking about fragile human lives here, heading for a certain destination. When it comes to the rather ruthless world of updates and new software, it is always best to be first or early in front, otherwise your competitors would have the advantage over you, and you would definitely be off for the worse. […]


Sony Android 5.0 Lollipop Rollout Continues

It is definitely nice to see companies prepare the latest version of the available operating system to the various handsets that are out there on the market, so that users need not have to wait for yet another month or two, or perhaps even to have to settle for an unauthorized port. Having said that, if you happen to be an ardent fan of Sony’s handsets, you will be pleased […]


Xperia Cosmos Selfie Phone Surfaces Online

The selfie trend has caught on, whether you like it or not, which is why many smartphone manufacturers today are offering much better front cameras in their devices. Some are even marketing their smartphones as “selfie phones” to make sure customers know what that particular device does best. Sony launched one of its own, the Xperia C3, which has a front facing flash and a 5 megapixel shooter for selfies.

Sony XPERIA M4 Aqua Smartphone

Sony is updating its mid-range Android smartphone line with the XPERIA M4, which is succeeding the XPERIA M2 (there won’t be an M3 handset, apparently). The announcement has surprised some observers, but the M2 was launched around this time last year, but it’s true that it was available for less than a year in many places. The XPERIA M4 will eventually replace it and has been designed to provide a […]


Sony Xperia Z3 & Z3 compact

As expected of Sony and the rumors, the company has recently announced the Xperia Z3 and the Xperia Z3 Compact Android smartphones.

Sony Looks To Roll Out Z3 Tablet Compact

Every decent modern day device that rolls out deserves to have at least one other rival to spur it on. Many have tried to go up against the mighty iPad as well as its smaller rival, the iPad mini, but it has been rather difficult to find a rival worthy of the iPad. Sony might have something up their sleeves which is worth checking out – which is the alleged […]


Sony Xperia T, TX And V Won’t Receive Android 4.4 KitKat

Sony has been doing a very good job of releasing Android 4.4 KitKat updates for its supported devices.

Over the past few weeks KitKat has been rolled out for a handful of Xperia devices and plans have been unveiled for those that are remaining. There’s a bit of bad news […]
