Android phones have never really been known for exceptional camera quality when it comes to taking videos, but Sony is setting out to change that. The company's newest phone, the Xperia 5 II, starts shipping next month, and it purports to offer the world’s first 4K HDR 120fps slow-motion movie recording from a smartphone. Now Sony has partnered with a former Ubisoft director to release a short film shot entirely on the Xperia 5 II — and wouldn't you know it, it looks pretty darn good.
Sony has been producing excellent noise-cancelling headphones for years, and its latest high-end option is the WH-1000XM4. Despite its horrible name, the headphones offer incredible isolation and sound quality, and now they are at their lowest price yet: $278.00.
We're surging into another American winter and whether you live where the snow falls or where the sunburns won't stop, you'll probably be celebrating something outside for one reason or another.

In preparation for the PlayStation 5 release, Sony rolled out an update for its Remote Play app earlier this month. Now the main PlayStation app itself is getting an overhaul that's been built to compliment the gaming experience on both PS4 and PS5 consoles.

Sony is starting to send out PlayStation 5 consoles (and the accompanying controllers) to reviewers and influencers, including tech YouTuber Austin Evans. Evans published an initial video about the console's 'DualSense' controller yesterday, which revealed an interesting detail for you smartphone gamers out there — the PS5 controller appears to work with Android.
Sony phones always follow the same pattern: they start off far too expensive in the United States, then slowly fall in price until they are acceptable purchases. Now you can get an Xperia 1 and a pair of Sony's WH1000XM3 noise-cancelling headphones together for $750, a savings of around $150 compared to buying the phone and headphones separately.
Gaming has always been one of the most fun ways to spend your time, and it has only become more accessible recently with the introduction of cloud gaming services like Stadia and xCloud. Sony brought its Remote Play app to all Android devices last year, and now it's being updated with support for the upcoming PlayStation 5 console.
Android TV is being rebranded as Google TV, but who knows how long that will take. In the meantime, Sony has been working on updating older devices. The company's Android TVs from 2015 got updated to Oreo a few months ago, and now it looks like Android 9 Pie is coming to many devices from 2016 and later.
