Google will begin certifying Android devices for business use, starting with phones from LG, BlackBerry, Motorola, and others

When it comes to security, Android devices are a mixed bag - to say the least. Few manufacturers make promises about long-term support, and timely security updates are rare.

Sony seems serious about improving its smartphone game. The Xperia XA1 and XA1 Ultra, despite having interesting camera setups and not-terrible pricing, were let down by the lacks of a Snapdragon processor and a fingerprint sensor. The XA2 and XA2 Ultra, which were leaked a few days ago, fix that with a Snapdragon 630 and a rear-mounted scanner. Also announced was the budget-oriented Xperia L2, which sports a rear fingerprint sensor as well.
