Sony says 2K screens are a waste for smartphones, especially if they kill battery life

When you’re using a display that’s only around 5 inches, do you really need it to have a 2K resolution when a 1080p resolution will do just fine? Sony certainly doesn’t think so and in an interview with TrustedReviews, Sony director of Xperia marketing Calum MacDougall gives a very smart explanation for why it’s not chasing other smartphones when it comes to bumping up display resolutions: It’s just not worth it if it means sacrificing battery life.

Customize your PS4 and PS Vita with themes in the next major updates

The success of the PlayStation 4 in the international market has been well-documented, but that doesn’t mean Sony’s latest home console is without its own unique flaws. In our review last fall, we noted that the app stream on the dashboard was going to become problematic as the PS4’s library began to expand, yet Sony still hasn’t found a way to address the issue in any of its recent updates. In the meantime, the company plans to distract us with dashboard themes. More →

Consoles, unchallenged for years as the PC market faded, slowly started to lose ground as smartphones and tablets became competent gaming platforms. Suddenly, everyone was playing games on their mobiles devices, from casual fans to hardcore gamers. Things got even more contentious when Steam hit the scene, bringing triple-A and indie developers alike back to the PC in droves. More →

Xperia Z3 Vs iPhone 6

This is the phone Sony will launch to take on Apple’s iPhone 6

This is the phone Sony will launch to take on Apple’s iPhone 6

After several years of complete and total domination by Samsung and Apple, a handful of rival device makers are finally starting to see some gains in the global smartphone market. Huawei and Lenovo have experienced some solid growth in recent quarters, and up and comer Xiaomi is among a handful of smaller Asian companies seeing big gains in that region. Meanwhile, Sony has continued to struggle despite launching several solid smartphones over the past couple of years.

The fall and the coming holiday shopping season are expected to be the hottest period in Apple’s storied history, with a record holiday quarter expected on the back of the iPhone 6, 5.5-inch iPhone phablet and iWatch. To combat the new iPhone 6, which is widely expected to quickly become the best-selling smartphone of all time, Sony plans to release a new flagship phone of its own — and the clearest photos we’ve seen of that new handset so far have just leaked.
