Sony makes phones that are good in some ways, but the issues often outweigh the strengths. Through it all, the price is still consistently higher than competing devices.

Sony announces 48-megapixel smartphone camera sensor

Sony has announced that it's developed a smartphone camera sensor with a silly-high resolution of 48 megapixels.

This phone will sound better, too, with Sony's High-Resolution Audio technology and DSEE HX audio upscaling.
