Root access gained for T-Mobile Xperia Z3, Verizon Xperia Z3v

We’ve talked about Sony’s locked bootloaders recently, and we feel the consumers who can totally relate with that are Sony Xperia device users in the United States. It doesn’t matter what carrier you get it from, it will most likely have a locked bootloader, because life just sucks like that. We kid, of course – it’s just more difficult for US Xperia users, that is a fact. But there just might be good news at the jump.

Sony Xperia Z might get Lollipop starting next week

While the Android 5.0 Lollipop may have rolled out for Sony devices like the Xperia Z3 Dual, Xperia Z1, Xperia Z1 Compact, and Xperia Z Ultra, the original Xperia Z owners seem to still be waiting in vain. But if we are to believe a tweet from the OEM, albeit it's from their office in the Philippines, it looks like the major update will finally arrive some time next week.

Special bootloaders from Sony to allow recovery access

If there’s probably just one thing you’d hate about owning a Sony Xperia device, it’s probably the bootloaders that prohibit booting into a recovery partition. Make no mistake about it, Sony Xperia devices are known for their aesthetic and chic minimalist design, and their premium hardware. But tweaking the software to run the custom ROM you want is always a huge headache.

Sony’s Xperia Z4 may be introduced as the Z3+ to the world

When Sony was rumored to be releasing a new flagship this year, a lot of people were pretty excited, since the current one, the Xperia Z3 has been pretty well received. But when they finally unveiled in Japan the Xperia Z4 and its specs, they received a lot of flak for it since it was just basically a slightly amped up version of the Z3. If a "leaked" white paper is to be believed, it looks like the international release will change the name to the Xperia Z3+.

T-Mobile relists the Sony Xperia Z3 on website

Earlier this April, T-Mobile discontinued its Sony Xperia Z3 deal because we thought it could be paving the way for the Sony Xperia Z4 which was already unveiled a week ago. The Xperia Z3 isn't exactly a bestseller but we were left wondering why only after six months after its official launch on the network, T-Mobile removed the model from its current lineup. But good news to those who want a Z3, T-Mobile is selling the phone and the black model is listed once again.

New Sony Sound Bars announced, with Google Cast support

Creating your own home entertainment system for aural and visual pleasure has never been easier now, because of all these new products that OEMs have been releasing.

Sony Xperia Z3 vs Sony Xperia Z4: Slight improvements might make the difference

We expect that most major OEMs release a flagship every year. And every time a consumer would buy the current flagship, there's always that unacknowledged fear that next year's new flagship might be better (as it should be right?) and so you might be "wasting" money buying the current one. The latest smartphone to present this dillema to its consumers is Sony which just announced its new flagship, the Xperia Z4, coming this summer. So should Xperia Z3 owners panic now and get ready to trade up?
