    Sony Xperia Z2 review

    By 17 April 2014

    Sony is in a funny place with its smartphones, pumping out a flagship device refresh every six months, rather than on a yearly cycle like most of its rivals. This sees the Sony Xperia Z2 landing seven months after the Z1's September launch, offering much...

    Infamous: Second Son review

    By 21 March 2014

    Infamous: Second Son is the game that every PlayStation 4 owner has been waiting for, whether an existing Infamous fan or not. It's the cool TV ad - well, the American one without the shouty British voice-over anyway - that's done it. All those quick...

    By 24 February 2014

    Sony has announced the Xperia M2 smartphone, which it is claiming has the "world's best smartphone technology in its class". It steals the design from the Xperia Z family, but ditches the waterproofing feature, so be careful not to confuse this device...

    By 24 February 2014

    The Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet replaces the Xperia Tablet Z, running with the tagline that it's the world's slimmest and lightest waterproof tablet. Regardless of the waterproofing, the Xperia Z2 Tablet is light for its screen size, tipping the scales at 426g,...

    Sony Xperia Z1 Compact review

    By 18 February 2014

    The Sony Xperia Z1 Compact is one of the first smaller-displayed devices to launch in recent years that can claim flagship status. It's something that fans have been calling for for some time: a device that's small, but packs as powerful a punch as the...

    Hands-on: Sony Alpha A6000 review

    By 12 February 2014

    Since Sony ditched its NEX name handle it’s certainly not ditched the essence of what that interchangeable lens camera line was all about. But now it’s all about the Alpha name - and the Sony Alpha A6000 is, in a way, the NEX reincarnate; a merger...

    By 6 February 2014

    Sony Cyber-shot QX100 review
