Xperia phones have a hidden 120Hz screen mode you won’t want

Xperia phones have a hidden 120Hz screen mode you won’t want

The iPhone X and the Razer Phone have one thing in common despite being worlds apart. Both have the ability to run the screen at a refresh rate of 120 Hz. Apple markets this feature for responsiveness. Razer puts it at the service of fluid gaming visuals. Either way, it seems that it’s a rather niche feature that very few phone makers would bother with. It turns out, however, that Sony has had phones capable of that since 2016. You just can’t, and probably shouldn’t, enable it easily.

Xperia XZ2, XZ2 Compact pre-orders start in the US

Xperia XZ2, XZ2 Compact pre-orders start in the US

Huawei may have made a big splash with its P20 and P20 Pro flagships, but that has fallen on deaf ears in the US where the phones won’t be sold, even through retailers. Sony, however, isn’t as rebellious. It is still snubbing US carriers but it is making its latest jewels available through other means. Pre-orders for the Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact have begun on B&H Photo and, somewhat thankfully, they aren’t so overpriced this time.

Sony A8F 4K HDR OLED TV price revealed: preorders now available

The recently announced Sony A8F 4K HDR OLED television is now available to preorder, and that gives us a price for the model: $2,799.99 USD. That's not cheap, though we didn't expect it to be.

The combination of the two makes it possible to watch high-quality Ultra HD content that features "ultra-detailed pictures," says Sony.

This HTC U12+ could be a masterpiece

A set of images depicting the future HTC U12+ can be seen today, each of them showing a device that might well turn the company's ill fortunes around. These images are concept renderings based on information shared off-the-books well before device release. The real deal might look a bit different - but if it's anything like this, HTC might well have a winner on their hands.

PS3 OtherOS settlement claims end next month

PS3 OtherOS settlement claims end next month

It’s not unusual to hear giant companies being sued left and right, by other companies or by customers via a class action suit. And it’s also not unusual to hear about those lawsuits dragging on for years. That was indeed the case with the “fat” PlayStation 3 when Sony removed its advertised “OtherOS” feature. Six years later, Sony decided to settle the lawsuit for what is basically loose change for the company. Now those who wish to claim a part of that settlement have to do so until April or else forfeit that $65 forever.

Fortnite Battle Royale cross-play held back by Sony, says Microsoft

Fortnite Battle Royale and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds are two of the hottest, and most lucrative, battle royale type games today. But only one of them is going to be available on almost all gaming platforms imaginable, including mobile (but excluding the Switch, at least for now). And only one of them And only one of them will have almost full cross-platform play support. Almost. Fortnite Battle Royale is in the position to become the perfect cross-play massively multiplayer battleground, but only if Microsoft and Sony can build bridges. And Microsoft says that the ball has always been in Sony’s court.

Xperia XZ2 gets a Night Light feature after all

Xperia XZ2 gets a Night Light feature after all

Sony Xperia fans probably made a collective groan of disappointment when the company revealed it would be removing the one and only official Night Light mode available on any of its phones. The Sony customer rep also indicated that none of the Xperia line of phones have that feature. Of course, that was barely a month ago and probably didn’t take into account future models. Because apparently, the Xperia XZ2 does have a built-in feature to protect your eyes and your body from harmful blue light at night.

MWC 2018 Highlights: the mid-range devices win

MWC 2018 Highlights: the mid-range devices win

MWC 2018 practically ended on its first day or two, with most of the announcements dumped then and there. There were some late surprises but we pretty much got a feel of the event right from the start. It was almost low-key, somber, and serious, with a few spikes here and there with interesting, if not sensational news. That doesn’t mean, however, that MWC this year was pretty dead. In fact, the biggest winners, at least by the numbers, seem to be the underdogs. Here are just some of the highlights of MWC 2018, especially for the smartphone market.
