Sony has today made the Android 4.4.4 update official for the Xperia Z2 and Z2 tablet. Sony has appended some excitement to the relatively small update as well. Both the Z2 and the Z2 Tablet will get PS4 Remote Play functionality, following in the footsteps of the Z3 family. This means the smartphone and tablet will be able to act as a remote screen and to connect to and control your games on the PlayStation 4.
The Z2 series also receives the ability to play Hi-Res audio via the USB port as well. Other updates include a new Battery Stamina mode and smart camera modes ported over from the Z3 as well. Do you happen to own one of these devices? Are you excited about the new features?

Sony also announced a new Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact and the Xperia Z3 compact which are two interesting products. However, the Z3 is no exceptional phone. It virtually packs similar specification compared to the Z2 which just an improved chassis and better camera processing – although that has to be tested against the claims.
If you like Sony’s UI and Playstation integration then you may soon be getting this phone in your country to pick up.
Unfortunately thanks to Sony’s poor implementation of software, the overall picture taking experience was close to a disaster. But Sony isn’t leaving the line-up yet. What we see today is the new QX lens – the successor to the old lens. This lens however is different in a way that it would not be coming with a lens module attached. Just like a mirrorless camera, it would take on exisitng E-mount camera lenses on – which is great for anyone who has heavily invested in the Sony lineup of lenses.
According to sources from SonyAlphaRumors the QX1 will be unveiled tomorrow alongside the Xperia Z3, Z3 Compact, Z3 Tablet Compact and a duo of wearables.
IFA is the topic of discussion at the moment and Sony is not gonna keep from launching new devices next month. It’s about time the company sends out invites and the internet has managed to get hold of one before they do.
What we can expect is the Sony Xperia Z3 which has been heavily leaked. The Xperia Z line up has been unveiled previously at IFA too. There is also a build up of news coming from sources that say that there is a Z3 mini version too coming alongwith a Xperia Z3 tablet as well.
There will also be a newer version of Sony’s lens style camera accessory – a successor to the QX10 and QX 100. Interestingly there is an all-in-one PC too that may dual boot Windows and Android as well.
Today T-mobile has got the KitKat 4.4.4 update for the Xperia Z1S rolling – which is currently the latest version of Android. To update, unfortunately you need a computer with Sony’s PC Companion software installed, as this isn’t an over-the-air rollout. Your phone will probably notify you about it but urge you to connect it to a computer.
Among the many new changes, the new software brings with it a new launcher, new themes, a customized keyboard, transparent navigation and status bars.
The hardware from the outside is easy to be mistaken as the Xperia Z2 itself since it looks so similar. On the backside we can see that even the camera is the same 20.7 MP one! However the evidence lies in the device identifying itself as the L55t and the L50t was the Xperia Z2.
There is still a lot we need to learn and publish about what Sony is cooking.
Sony has been one of the OEMs that have a sort of reverse strategy when it comes to the US. Usually US sees phones arrive to them first then the rest of the world, but this is not the case when it comes to Sony. While rumors of a Z3 have already started, they might have just missed a huge opportunity in terms of sales. Nevertheless, the Z1 Compact is a hot phone.
If you are interested, head here to visit Sony’s store for a $258 purchase.
To start off the phone is really mediocre at best when it comes to processing power, the real show stopper is a front facing 5MP camera with LED flash. To enhance the selfie taking experience, Sony has added a lot of software features to make you look better. The phone has a 5.5 inch 720p Triluminous display. A quad-core snapdragon processor with 1 GB RAM and 8GB of internal memory with expansion.
It has a LED on the front too and KitKat 4.4.2 onboard but it is isn’t waterproof.
Sony is announcing a new phone tomorrow that it wants to sell just for a feature that would help click high quality selfies. Sony shared the image above with the tagline “see your #selfies in a whole new light,” more than confirming the existence of such a device. The phone would be called the Xperia C3, we do not know the exact internal specifications of the Xperia C3 but from what we see in leaks, it has a rare front-facing LED flash alongwith a selfie assisting voice software for rear camera selfies.
