Google lists all of your devices, location included

This week Google is doubling down on security, making it easy for you to get an idea of how many devices you've used with Google services, showing you these devices in one simple list. For a user like myself, this list is massive. Even just going back to the tail end of 2013, Google lists 43 devices I've logged in on. Not just devices I've ever logged in on, but devices I'm STILL logged in on. This means I really, truly need to be better at remembering to log out.

Sony’s own Backup & Restore app hacked, taken over

When you have a smartphone, you’d like to trust that the apps coming straight form the manufacturer of that phone are secure. More to the point, you’d probably safely assume any software designed to access your information stored in your phone would be something that couldn’t be compromised in any way. A new report suggests Sony’s own backup and restore app has been hacked, but that’s not even the most sensational news. Hackers have taken over the app entirely, even claiming ownership in Google Play.

Sony’s new stacked CMOS sensor for smartphones: HDR everywhere

Sony’s new stacked CMOS sensor for smartphones: HDR everywhere

Today, Sony is unveiling a new stacked sensor that could greatly improve smartphone photography as we know it. The stacked CMOS sensor from Sony is the latest in a long line of mobile photography improvements from Sony, and will likely make its place on their incoming Xperia Z4 handset. Though it has the same pixel count as the Xperia Z3’s EXMOR sensor, this new hardware makes better use of those pixels. The stacked sensor isn’t new, but it’s the first time Sony is bringing it to a mobile platform.

Xperia Z4 details spill: Evolution, not Revolution

Sony's next smartphone may well be the first to leak its parts this season as we prepare for the whole 2015 batch. What we're seeing here is said to be the Sony Xperia Z4, the next in a line of devices that look so extremely similar, you'd be forgiven for mistaking one for any one of the others. This device is tipped to be working with a front panel here so similar to its predecessor that it's even more difficult to tell them apart than the last two.

Sony IMX230 brings mirrorless camera features to phones

Sony has just announced a new EXMOR RS sensor and it is poised to take smartphone photography to the next level. Although the new IMX230 has almost the same effective 21 megapixel count as the camera found on, say, the Xperia Z3, this new sensor uses a stacked design that allows it to cram high-end camera functionality in a 1/2.4 size CMOS sensor. Such functionality include an image plane phase detection autofocus system and HDR imaging not just for videos but for still photos as well.

Sony Xperia Z3v Review

Sony Xperia Z3v Review

Over the past week we've had a look at the third in a line of Sony's "Z" devices in so many years, this one called the "Z3" when it's not carried by Verizon. This version of the Xperia Z3 goes by the name "Z3v", appropriately, as it runs on Verizon's 4G LTE network. The only differences between this "v" model and the standard "Z3" is the added thickness (negligible) and the reason for the difference in size: the addition of wireless charging capabilities. This device is massive, sleek, and quite clearly meant to compete with the finest smartphones ever released.

Strangely, only the white color option seems to be available if you buy the tablet directly from Sony, with no sign of the black variant we put through our hands-on test.

Sony: Android Lollipop will be on all Xperia Z devices

Sony: Android Lollipop will be on all Xperia Z devices

Though not easy to come by stateside, the Sony Xperia Z lineup makes a strong showing elsewhere in the world. Since re-dedicating themselves to mobile, Sony has made strides in improving the overall experience on their handsets. An impressive 20.7MP camera adorns the newest Xperia Z flagships, and their Android overlay is slight and appealing. Updates are sometimes the foil of an Android OEM and user, though, as the company struggles to decide how to support legacy handsets. Sony isn’t struggling with that decision at all, and will update their entire Xperia Z lineup.
