Xperia Z2

New devices supported by Chromecast for more streaming joy

As the new devices for 2014 roll in, a lot of the older devices and standards have had to adjust and tweak themselves to play nice with the current crop of smartphones, phablets, and tablets. One of those is Chromecast, Google’s streaming-slash-screen casting dongle that now allows more gadgets to connect to it for more big-screen streaming goodness.

Xperia Z2, Z2 Tablet upgrade: PS4 remote, camera apps and more

With all the excitement about Sony's new flagship, the Xperia Z3, owners of the previous flagship Xperia Z2, as well as the Z2 Tablet should be forgiven for thinking that the OEM has already forgotten about them. Apparently, the folks over at Sony were working hard on bringing a major software upgrade, and instead of releasing it next year, they've decided to go ahead and give their users an early Christmas gift. New features include the much talked about PS4 Remote Play as well as the social camera apps exclusive for Sony Xperia users.

Those who’ve been dreaming of having PlayStation 4 Remote Play on their Xperia Z2 and Xperia Z2 Tablets can finally sleep at because the previously exclusive feature on the Z3 series is coming to other Xperia models. No formal announcement from Sony has been made yet but there’s a reference over at an Xperia Loung app page saying the functionality will be available on the Z2 and Z2 tablet starting November 2014.

Sony adds Xperia Z1, Z2 to AOSP for Xperia, updates Xperia Z

While Sony might arguably be not the top Android seller in the world, the OEM is popular for trying to do right by its users, especially when it comes to the Android community, especially modders and custom ROM makers. Aside from providing official instructions, and warnings, for unlocking bootloaders, it also provides kernel sources and configurations on the open source GitHub repository to be used by those who want to create their own Android version of its devices. Today, those sources welcome three devices to the fold.

Android Lollipop is coming to all Sony Xperia Z devices

Boo yah! Sony just dropped a big one on us today as they have announced what seems to be a roadmap for future software releases on their premium Xperia Z series. We’ve all heard of Android Lollipop (who hasn’t?), and we’ve all seen what it can do – the minimalist Material Design, the new features. That’s one thing. But it is a whole other thing – and exciting, at that – to declare that a whole series of your premium phones is getting it.

Xperia Z2 in seabed for 6 weeks, still works after “rescue”

When OEMs boast of their devices’ water-proof capabilities, they are still very careful to set limitations on what sort of conditions they will be able to survive. For example, Sony said that while their Xperia Z2 is indeed water-resistant, it complies with iP58 so it can only stand up to 30 minutes under 1.5 mm of freshwater. Well, a Swede’s experience with his Z2 might surprise even the people over at Sony as it survived being under 10 meters deep for an amazing six weeks and lived to tell the tale.

Don’t you just wish sometimes that the photos and videos stored in your mobile device would just go and make a short film about themselves, without you having to lift many fingers? Well, if you own a Sony Xperia Z2 (or planning to buy one), then that option is now available with the New Movie Creator app, which will automatically create 30-second videos based on the media in your smartphone.

Live on Youtube app updated, more Xperia devices supported
