Lately though it seemed Sony had decided to discontinue that trend since they did not launch any new live wallpapers after the Xperia Z5 line. Fortunately for fans though, Xperia XZ Premium and XZs did bring new themes and a new live wallpaper with them. The wallpaper is called Xperia Loops and is part of a new Xperia theme of the same name.

Did Sony’s roadmap for rolling out the Nougat update sound too good to be true? It kind of was since October came and went, and so did November and yet the company couldn’t manage to roll out a public preview of the latest OS build for even one of its two flagships. But just on the last day of November, that is yesterday, Sony began rolling out the Nougat update to unlocked versions of Xperia X Performance.
Just a day after, Sony’s second flagship, the slightly beefier and prettier Xperia XZ is reportedly receiving the update in many parts of the world. Continue reading “Sony’s second flagship Xperia XZ receives the sweet Nougat update”

You may already know that unsurprisingly the Sony Xperia XZ and X Compact shipped to the US have disabled fingerprint scanners just like every other Sony Xperia before them. Sony reasons this as a “purely business decision,” whatever that means. But if the lack of a fingerprint reader was the one thing holding you back from buying the device, you might want to re-think. Continue reading “Enable fingerprint reader on Sony Xperia XZ and X Compact units in US”
The Sony Xperia XZ is now available for purchase unlocked and contract-free in the United States, but it comes with quite a hefty price tag. The Xperia XZ costs a whopping $699.99, a price point that puts it at the steep end of the smartphone market.
The device, which went up for pre-order last month, gets an aluminum build and a strong set of internal features. If you’re looking to join the ranks of the early adopters, you can snag the XZ on Amazon in either Black or Silver. Oddly, the Forest Blue color that showed up during the pre-order phase is no longer available on Amazon. Continue reading “Xperia XZ now available in the US for a whopping $699”
