Sony Xperia Z5 Android 6.0.1 update brings back STAMINA mode

Sony Xperia Z5 Android 6.0.1 update brings back STAMINA mode

It isn't unusual for OEMs to implement features not found in stock Android exactly because they want to offer an experience that plain Android just can't. Eventually, Android does catch up, adding those features and causing OEM chanegs to be redundant. Sometimes, however, Android's official version doesn't exactly replace sometimes more useful alternatives. That was apparently the case when Sony removed STAMINA mode from its devices running Android Marshmallow in favor of Android's new Doze feature. After no small amount of complaints, the latest update brings it back for the Xperia Z5 family.

Full Sony Xperia X catalog US launch date starts June 26

Retiring the "Xperia Z" line (and soon the C and M names as well), Sony introduced the new Xperia X family with an increased focus on mobile photography as well as design, on top of the Xperia's much boasted battery life. Today, Sony has announced the good news that it will be bringing all four Sony Xperia X models to the US, with pre-orders starting today for the Xperia X, and a retail launch scheduled for June 26.

Sony’s PlayStation 4 tops 40 million units sold

It's sometimes surprising to hear how well the PlayStation 4 is performing this console generation when remembering how difficult things were for the PS3 several years ago. The latest word from Sony is that the PS4 has just hit the milestone of selling 40 million units. That's less than a year since hitting the 30 million mark, and less than six months after topping 35 million, making the PS4 Sony's fastest-selling console in its history.

Sony’s Xperia AI reinvention puts Alexa in the crosshairs

Sony’s Xperia AI reinvention puts Alexa in the crosshairs

Sony has set its sights on the "evolution of communication", and it's not content to let Google, Amazon, and Apple hog the spotlight in AI. The company may have a patchy track-record with its Xperia range of phones and tablets over the past few years, but with the rebooting of its mobile business in 2016 and a more ambitious strategy centered on smart products with more unusual form-factors and functions, it could well be time to take Sony seriously again.

Sony Xperia XA Ultra official: selfie-focused, classy giant

Sony Xperia XA Ultra official: selfie-focused, classy giant

It seems that the rumors about Sony retiring the Xperia C and M series are true. At least if you consider the unveiling of the Xperia XA Ultra, previously known as the Xperia C6 Ultra, is any indication. The official specs closely match what has been unofficially leaked and seen so far, which cements the identity of the two. But despite being basically coming from a mid-range line, the Xperia XA Ultra at least inherits the striking design of the slightly more premium Xperia XA.

Sony Xperia X only has 20 out of 32GB free for use

Sony Xperia X only has 20 out of 32GB free for use

Our smartphones are getting more loaded in features, but sometimes they are also getting more loaded in software as well. That wouldn't be a problem if that software could be removed at the user's discretion, but such bloatware usually comes with the entire package. So when the Sony Xperia X and X Performance was revealed to have less than two-thirds of its total storage available to users, there is understandably no small amount of disappointment among Sony's remaining stalwart fans.

PlayStation 4.5 NEO might actually launch in September

Gamers, it's time to put your thinking hats on again. Or if you're from the Xbox One camp, you might start snickering again. The latest word to come out of the rumor mill is that Sony's "and a half" console upgrade might be coming earlier than expected. While most bets are still on an October release, a French video game distributor claims that the "PlayStation Neo 4K" will instead be released in September. An earlier release, however, could just about mess up everyone else's timetables, including and especially game developers.
