You Get Just 1.26GB of Free Space on This 8GB Smartphone

As the old saying goes, there are lies, damned lies, and advertised internal storage capacities for mobile devices. Manufacturers misrepresenting usable space on devices is a trick with a long and storied history, but Sony’s Xperia M4 Aqua is the most shameless fakery I’ve ever seen.

Sony’s Z4 Flagship Smartphone Will Give You a Serious Case of Déjà Vu

Well, look at this. Sony just revealed a new flagship smartphone. The new Xperia Z4 comes with spec bumps in both the processor and camera department, all wrapped in “haven’t I seen this before” design. It’s a modest flagship update at best, providing little improvement over last year’s Z3.

Xperia Z4 Tablet: Slick and Slim, With Laptop Aspirations

There's a new tablet in town. It's the new Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet and yeah, it's slimmer, lighter and more powerful than its predecessor, the Xperia Z2 Tablet . But the biggest achievement here is that the attachable keyboard transforms the Z4 into an Android PC, with its own mouse cursor and adapted UI. I tried it, and it's surprisingly plausible.

iPhone 6/Plus cameras ranked joint 1st in highly-repected DxOMark Mobile tests

iphone-6-camera

The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus cameras have taken joint first place in the influential DxOMark Mobile ranking of smartphone cameras – three points ahead of the two Android smartphones which previously headed the list, the Samsung Galaxy S5 and Sony Xperia Z3.

DxO Labs tests the image quality of literally thousands of cameras from entry-level smartphones to professional DSLRs, and is considered by many in the photography field to be the definitive database. The company said that Apple has “set the gold standard for smartphone image quality” … 

DxO praised both the technology behind the faster focusing of the iPhone 6 camera, and the optical image stabilisation of the 6 Plus – and said that both cameras performed equally well in lab tests and real-life use.

They have very good, generally reliable auto-exposure in a wide range of lighting conditions and they have both fast and accurate autofocus. Output from the 8-Mpix stills improves the high level of detail in both outdoor and indoor lighting. In low light, noise reduction is handled well with images revealing fine-grained luminance noise and little of the distracting color (chroma) noise.

The company also said that the high-quality displays made them ideal for on-the-fly editing.

Both displays have stunning clarity, high contrast, excellent color and wide viewing angles, which is promising for viewing (and editing) stills and video on the go. Video capture doesn’t include 4K but both feature 1080p at 60 fps with slow-motion options at 120 fps and 240 fps.

Autofocus was described as “fast, accurate and repeatable” and the “best ever tested by DxOMark Mobile.”

Apple is featuring the cameras in one of its new TV ads, and we were equally impressed in our own tests. You can check out more time-lapse and slo-mo videos here.

The full DxOMark Mobile rankings can be seen below.
