iFixit gives PS4 Pro high marks for repairability

Sony may have offered its own teardown video of the new PlayStation 4 Pro console, but that didn't stop the experts at iFixit from pulling one apart and assessing its repairability. The PS4 Pro, of course, is a much more powerful version of the standard PS4, designed to produce the best graphics possible with support for 4K TVs.

Sony shows off PlayStation 4 Pro internals in new teardown video

The PlayStation 4 Pro launched yesterday, and now Sony is giving us an up-close and personal look at the console's hardware. It's doing that in a new teardown video, where Sony takes us through all of the components of the PS4 Pro and shows us how to access them.

Xperia XZ torture test reveals a lot of plastic

Xperia XZ torture test reveals a lot of plastic

Sony is a rather odd smartphone maker. After its “golden age” dating back to the Xperia Z3 and earlier, it seems that every new flagship it puts out is beset by one controversy or another. While the Xperia XZ, its most high-end for this year, isn’t as contentious (except in the US), it might still end up disappointing fans, and not just because of the design.
