Sony Xperia Z3+ camera might be its own saving grace

Sony Xperia Z3+ camera might be its own saving grace

Sony may have had a misstep with the Xperia Z4/Xperia Z3+ when it came to the choice of a Snapdragon 810 processor, but it is almost inconceivable that it would mess up the camera sensor, one of the key businesses of the company. Sony might have just proven it still got chops in that field. Digital photography benchmarking site DxOMark has just published their report on the latest Sony "flagship" and, as expected, it fares fairly well.

Cyanogen-powered Alacatel TOUCH Hero 2+ is no more

It hasn't even seen the light of day and it no longer will. Alcatel and Cyanogen, Inc. have jointly announced that they are canceling their previously announced plans for a ONETOUCH Hero 2+ remix.

Meizu MX5 boasts full metal body, 20MP laser-aided shooter

Apple and Samsung push the limits of smartphones in every flagship and Chinese manufacturers push back by going with the trend and slapping on a cheaper price tag. Meizu's latest MX5 is probably the epitome of that cycle. Eschewing the mostly plastic build of its predecessors, the Meizu MX5 now flaunts a metal-clad body with a design that is unabashedly reminiscent of other high-end flagships. Bundle that up with not so insignificant hardware and a price to die for and you've got the makings of classic Chinese smartphone star.

Neoring is a magnetic phone mount…for your hand

Smartphone stands and mounts come in all forms: round balls that rest on a table top, tripods for almost-anything positioning, magnets that slide over your car's ventilation grilles. The Neoring is not like those things. It is, it seems, a substitution for using your fingers to hold your phone by, you know, using your fingers but in a different way. With a big magnetic ring. Slide the ring on your finger, attach the phone to the ring, and you can now hold your phone without actually having to hold it.
