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.

Meet the smartphone Sony will use to fight the iPhone 6 and Galaxy Note 4

Sony on Wednesday took the wraps off its latest flagship smartphone, the Xperia Z3, which will be its primary weapon against the highly anticipated releases of both the iPhone 6 and the Galaxy Note 4 this month. As you might expect, Sony wants to tie in its hugely popular PlayStation 4 gaming console in with its new device, which is why the company has added a new feature called PS4 Remote Play that will let you use the Xperia Z3 as “a remote screen to connect to and control your games on PS4.” More →

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.

A closer look at the Xperia Z3, Sony’s next flagship smartphone

Sony still hasn’t found a way to effectively infiltrate the Western phone market, but that doesn’t mean the Japanese powerhouse is giving up any time soon. Our friendly neighborhood leaker @evleaks has published two new photos of what he claims to be the upcoming flagship Xperia Z3 smartphone, a phone that at first glance could easily be mistaken for an Xperia Z2. Upon further inspection, the Z3 does appear to be thinner and seems to lacks the silver trim which lined the edges of the Z2. More →
