Sony Xperia 1 II borrows Alpha camera tech for the photographer’s Android

Sony Xperia 1 II borrows Alpha camera tech for the photographer’s Android

The Sony Xperia 1 II is a second take on the photography-first Android smartphone. Fresh on the heels of last year's unusually-shaped Xperia 1, this "Mark II" version takes a leaf out of Sony's camera business to try to gain an edge in 2020's fiendishly competitive phone segment. Along the way, it taps some of Sony's unique talents - and falls victim to some of the company's perennial missteps.

The Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G’s 100x zoom is frustrating excess

The Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G’s 100x zoom is frustrating excess

Nobody can accuse the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G of not taking photography seriously. Flagship of the new S20 family, its four main cameras includes a whopping 100x "Space Zoom" courtesy of a clever folded telephoto lens. It's one of the first things I played with when SlashGear's Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G review unit landed, but as I quickly discovered, just because you can zoom, doesn't mean you should.

This 2,700hp Mercedes-AMG x Cigarette Racing 59’ Tirranna yacht blew my mind

This 2,700hp Mercedes-AMG x Cigarette Racing 59’ Tirranna yacht blew my mind

Mercedes-AMG and Cigarette Racing have a long history of creating high-performance racing boats, but few are as striking as this year’s Miami International Boat Show specials: the 59’ Tirranna AMG Edition, and its one-off Mercedes-AMG G 63 Cigarette Edition SUV cousin. From that point, I didn’t know where to look first: should I feast my eyes on Mercedes-AMG’s newest racing boat, or should I ogle at the newest G 63? Since the new 59’ Tirranna AMG Edition was still out on the first run giving journalists a test ride, I spent some time with the Mercedes-AMG G 63 first.

Samsung Galaxy Buds+ Review

Samsung Galaxy Buds+ Review

Samsung's Galaxy Buds+ may have had to share stage-time with the Galaxy S20 series and the Galaxy Z Flip at Unpacked 2019, but that's not to say the updated wireless earbuds weren't worth attention. Follow-up to last year's well-received Galaxy Buds, the new earbuds promise a boost in audio quality, usability, and battery life, though with an increase in price along the way.

2021 Jaguar F-TYPE R and P300 first-drive review: An upgrade that surprises

2021 Jaguar F-TYPE R and P300 first-drive review: An upgrade that surprises

The Jaguar F-Type lives in a competitively niche market. Flanked by the Porsche 911 and BMW 8-Series, the F-Type is dedicated to purists, much in the same manner that a Mazda Miata MX-5 aims to thrill the enthusiast's senses. When the F-Type first launched in 2013, it instantly gained recognition as the evolution of the luscious E-Type from the 1960s. Those teardrop-shaped headlights, the classic sportscar proportions of bulbous rump and long hood... oh, and it behaved like a proper Jag as well. Gutsy engines, a standard manual gearbox, rear-wheel drive, and that iconic silhouette. When you're taking inspiration from the past, choosing a car so gorgeous that old man Ferrari thought it to be the most beautiful machine with four wheels isn't a bad place to begin.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip hands-on: Second time’s the charm

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip hands-on: Second time’s the charm

If the Galaxy Fold felt like an experiment, Samsung's second foldable Android phone, the Galaxy Z Flip seems like a real play for a larger market. That's "larger" with some not-insignificant quotes, mind: a $1,380 sticker price still puts this well out of the reach of most smartphone buyers. At least, my early impressions suggest, the foldable they're getting for their money feels a lot more grown-up.

Samsung Galaxy S20 5G hands-on: Serious flagships are seriously expensive

Samsung Galaxy S20 5G hands-on: Serious flagships are seriously expensive

Few details about the Samsung Galaxy S20 failed to leak, but that doesn't make this flagship trifecta - the Galaxy S20 5G, the S20+ 5G, and the S20 Ultra 5G - any less important. Jumping forward over the S10 to match the new decade, Samsung's Android flagships deliver the same mixture of big screens, multiple cameras, and plentiful power that we've come to expect from Unpacked each February.
