T-Mobile Sony Xperia Z1S Review

T-Mobile Sony Xperia Z1S Review

To say that Sony is participating in the current “if it isn’t broke, don’t fix it” trend would be an understatement if you’ve been keeping track of their hero Xperia smartphone lineup. In the Xperia Z1S, we’ve got essentially the same build as in the internationally-aimed Xperia Z1, here coming to T-Mobile with the carrier’s Uncarrier plans attached, and just as much power as the original. In other words - if you liked the Xperia Z and were looking forward to the just that-much-better Xperia Z1 “Honami”, this is your winning ticket.

The camera on this device (on the back, again,) also works with a 1/2.3-inch 20.7MP Exmor RSCMOS image sensor - so you know you're going to be meaning business when this device is snapping shots.

Sony QX Lens Cameras work without smartphone aid

Though we've seen the Sony "Lens Camera" devices appear connected to smartphones before, today a set of press photos suggests that the user might be able to use these devices without a companion smart unit at all. Where before we'd assumed that it was the smartphone - or tablet - that allowed a Sony Lens Camera to be controlled, today a set of photos that very much appear to be press-quality (aka real from Sony, more than likely) show a couple of users working with these devices without being physically attached to the smartphone in hand.
