Sony's Xperia Z5 Series Pricing Surfaces Across Europe — From €549 For The Z5 Compact To €799 For The Z5 Premium, Even More In The UK

Sony is one of the very rare companies who know how to balance the right level of features between smaller and larger devices. Their newly announced Z5 series has a very powerful Z5 Compact, a good Z5, and a slightly fluffed up Z5 Premium, all without compromising on processor, RAM, or camera performance.

However, that comes at a price and we're just starting to discover what the tag will be on these smartphones. Sony's announcement didn't include any pricing details, but retailers all across Europe and the UK have begun listing the different Z5 devices on their sites. Here are the known amounts of euros and pounds you should part with:

So yeah, that's a boatload of money for the Z5 Premium and a lesser one for the other two models.

Google Play Music And Play Music All Access Make Their Way Over To Japan

Hey there, people who live in the Land of the Rising Sun, who end their day when we're about to start ours, and who have brought plenty of appreciated contributions to our modern lives, like sushi and mangas. Now is your time to receive a small export of Western society, in the form of Google Play Music access.

Both support pages for Google Play's paid purchases and country availability for apps and digital content have received a recent update to add Japan to their lists. This means that Android users in Japan should either already or soon have access to Play Music and Play Music All Access so they can individually purchase songs and albums or pay a monthly fee for unlimited access to thousands of tunes. Ongaku tanoshindene!*

Sheets Will Find Interesting Trends In Your Data Automatically With New 'Explore' Function In Latest Update, Several Other New Features Included Too [APK Download]

Anyone who has to pore over data on a regular basis knows that it's a best practice to look at some graphs, run basic descriptive statistics, and just generally play around to make sure you aren't missing anything obvious and to assure yourself that there are no mistakes in data entry.

All you have to do in the Android app is tap "Explore" in the overflow menu. After that, you'll be presented with a series of charts with summary information to let you know what Google thought you would find interesting.

Lenovo's PHAB Plus Is The Latest Overly-Huge Phone To Join The Phablet Scene

I remember fondly when the word phablet became a thing...though I wish I didn't have to ever think about it. In fact, I had almost forgotten that it was a thing...until Lenovo announced the PHAB Plus, its entry into the huge phone game.

Here's the deal: it's got a 6.8-inch display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615, 2GB of RAM, and 13MP/5MP cameras. Like its outdated specs, it's also running Android 5.0 - perfect for those who want to re-live late 2014 all over again. Ah, the memories.

But I digress. The PHAB Plus is designed for one-handed use, thanks to a variety of gestures and whatnot.

[Deal, I Guess] Grab An Amazon Fire Phone For $125 With Free Shipping, Still Comes With One Year Of Prime

Once upon a time, Amazon made a phone. It was gimmicky and silly, and no one wanted to play with it. After realizing what a horrible mistake it had made, Amazon tried pawning off said phone for stupid-ridiculous prices.

The end.

Oh, and if you basically want to get a phone for like $25, now's the time. I mean, you'll have to deal with knowing you own a Fire Phone, so if you can handle that, then eBay has the deal for you: new phone, free shipping, and it comes with a year of Prime (which is normally $99), all for $125.

Amazon Has The Moto X Pure Edition Up For Pre-Order If You Don't Want To Customize It

Earlier today, Motorola opened pre-orders for the 2015 Pure Edition Moto X. If you don't really care about Moto Maker or customization at all, then Amazon is the way to go - if you're a Prime member you'll get yours just a couple of days after release. It's slated to be released on the 9th of this month, so you'll most likely be one of the first to get your hands on Moto's newest flagship.

It's available in both 16GB and 32GB variants, with three color schemes for each: black, white, and white with a bamboo back. The plain color models (black and white) are both $399 for 16GB and $449 for 32GB, with the bamboo model coming it at $25 more.

Acer Also Showed Off A Predator 'Gaming Phone' At IFA Today

Earlier today, Acer announced a bunch of stuff, including a new gaming tablet called Predator 8. Well, it turns out that it wasn't finished with the mobile gaming stuff, because it also showed off the Predator 6 - a freakin' gaming phone.

I knew eventually I'd have to say those two words right next to each other. I just knew it.

Anyway, yeah. Like its larger brother, it's got quad front speakers, virtual surround sound, and controller-like haptic feedback. Other details are pretty scarce at the moment, but we do know it has 4GB of RAM, a 6-inch display (as its name suggests), and an unnamed deca-core Mediatek processor (most likely a Helio).

Docs Gets 'Research' Feature Allowing You To Use Google To Find And Insert Links And Images Without Leaving App [APK Download]

There are several reasons why it isn't fun to write formatted documents on a phone, but one of the biggest is how arduous the process of doing simple things like hyperlinking or adding images is. Well, Google rolled out an update to the Android app for Docs that makes these tasks far easier. From within the app, you can now perform Google searches, read webpages, and insert links or images in a very user-friendly way.

In the Docs app, you can now use a feature called "Research" in the overflow menu. This brings you an in-app interface to make the process of finding and using external sources way simpler.
