Sony Xperia Z1 review.. a Samsung Galaxy S4 killer? | Mobile IT | Scoop.it

"Competition in the upper reaches of the smartphone market has never been steeper, with Apple having unveiled new iPhone hardware and the Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One maintaining a stranglehold on the Android sector.

Sony has always lagged behind the pacesetters in the arms race, but that could be about to change with the release of its latest flagship handset, the Sony Xperia Z1."

Sony Xperia Z.. the T-Mobile review

Sony Xperia Z.. the T-Mobile review | Mobile IT | Scoop.it

"Sony’s Xperia Z has been a sleeper agent of sorts: launched to great fanfare at CES in January, overshadowed by the Galaxy S 4 and HTC One at launch, and yet grabbing upgrade sales from under Samsung’s nose in Europe. Not bad for a company once written off in smartphones, and now Sony is hoping to repeat that success in the US, with a launch on T-Mobile USA.."

Sony XPERIA ZL.. review

Sony XPERIA ZL.. review | Mobile IT | Scoop.it

"With the Sony XPERIA ZL, the company took a double-tiered approach to a hero smartphone release – unlike what Samsung and HTC have done with their HTC One and GALAXY S 4, Sony has created a machine that’s got the same innards as the XPERIA Z, but with a body that’s almost like an alternate reality iteration. Here with the XPERIA ZL, Sony has taken the display, the software, the processor, and the camera technology from the XPERIA Z, putting it in a body that’s both more rugged and thinner than the hero."

This mobile phone sounds really great. The colors can make a big diffrence. There are also options to extend your battery length. Most phones run out of energy really fast. The new colors sounds intresting aswell

Sony Xperia E Dual Review.. for the low-end market

Sony Xperia E Dual Review.. for the low-end market | Mobile IT | Scoop.it

"With all the hype surrounding Sony’s high-end phones like the Xperia Z, it’s easy to forget that the company is still making phones for the low-end market as well. Joining the low-end ranks most recently are the tag-team duo of the Sony Xperia E and the Sony Xperia E Dual. The two phones are nearly identical aside from the number of SIMs and the Android version they run. They also share one very important factor: a pretty low off-contract price."

Sony Xperia Z vs Sony Xperia ZL.. waterproof vs compact

Sony Xperia Z vs Sony Xperia ZL.. waterproof vs compact | Mobile IT | Scoop.it

"In the Android Universe, January 2013 is, without a doubt, Sony’s month. During a period with relatively few major official announcements, the Japanese manufacturer has announced a trifecta of high-end devices: the Sony Xperia Z, the Sony Xperia ZL, and the Sony Xperia Z tablet.

 

While the Sony Xperia Z tablet leaves little room for confusion (it is a blazing fast, slim, and waterproof Android tablet), making a distinction between the Xperia Z and the Xperia ZL it’s a bit more difficult."

Sony ODIN tipped to hit market as Xperia X, savior of the OEM | Mobile IT | Scoop.it

It’s time to get back in business with the device code-named Sony C650X ODIN, aka the Norse god-of-gods, father of Thor and Loki, and one heck of a smartphone. What we’ve got here is a case of Sony setting themselves up for either a very giant win or a real big let-down for lovers of the name – but one way or another, we’re about to see one massive effort of a smartphone in 2013. Expect to see the machine at hand at CES 2013 or MWC 2013 without a doubt.

Google Nexus 4 vs Sony Xperia T/TL.. a closer look | Mobile IT | Scoop.it

The Sony Xperia T LT30p (Xperia TL LT30at on AT&T in the U.S.) is a gorgeous device bearing Sony’s unique design, but Sony isn’t the only smartphone manufacturer out there that knows how to design a phone. The LG Optimus G was LG’s latest offering to the market, and it certainly did not disappoint either. Not only was it a powerful phone, it was quite attractive, as well, especially with its glittering backpanel.

"What is the Oppo N1, you may ask? It’s Oppo’s answer to 2013′s obsession with higher quality imaging.Samsung has their Galaxy Zoom series. Nokia has their Lumia 1020. And now even Sony is rumored to be releasing some serious looking lenses for their upcoming Honami / i1 series, which we believe we will see at IFA 2013, in Berlin. But what- there’s more. HTC has their Ultrapixel, and Motorola has their ‘Clearpixel.’ While some might argue that today’s smartphones capture great pictures already, there is always room for improvement."

"There are a lot of mid-range phones out there, and most of them are fairly average looking. Yes, they work and they don’t look awful, but they aren’t particularly eye catching, either. Enter the Sony Xperia L.

Unlike many midrange phones, the Sony Xperia L comes in a stylish package. Is this enough to help it stand out from the competition?"

Sony Xperia Tablet Z revealed

Sony Xperia Tablet Z revealed | Mobile IT | Scoop.it

"Today Sony has made a bit of a soft announcement of their next-generation hero tablet, that being the Xperia Tablet Z: complete with a quad-core processor and a rather thin body. This machine is just about as strait up rectangular a tablet as we’ve ever seen with extremely tight (but not quite square) corners and what appears to be a slightly odd aspect ratio bezel around its 10.1-inch display."

Samsung Galaxy S3 vs Sony Xperia T/TL

Samsung Galaxy S3 vs Sony Xperia T/TL | Mobile IT | Scoop.it

It isn’t uncommon for Android devices to have reputations. The Samsung Galaxy S3 GT-I9300 is considered by many to be the King of Android phones, and with good reason.

 

The Sony Xperia T LT30p (Xperia TL LT30at on AT&T in the U.S.), on the other hand, did not quite gain a reputation. Rather, Sony has attached James Bond’s name to the device. That’s right — Agent 007, man of charisma, charm, and exquisitely tailored suits, has his name attached to the Xperia T and even uses it for a few seconds in the latest Bond movie, Skyfall.
