Sony Xperia Z1 Vs HTC One

I had to quickly change phones last week, and I decided to get a Sony Xperia Z1, even though the Z2 would be released fairly quickly. Spending a week with a broken phone was slightly annoying, and I needed to change, so the Z1 was it. I managed to find one that wasn’t too expensive and splurged on my first purchase since coming back from the Philippines after Chinese New Year.

Sony Xperia Z: Let the Phablet Wars Begin!

While the perfect smartphone size hasn’t yet been nailed down, manufacturers are happy to offer larger phablets or tabphones to consumers, who seem to be lapping them up because of the desire for a convergence device – one that can serve as a phone and a tablet at the same time. Despite not being particularly pocket-friendly, Samsung’s Galaxy Note series has been quite popular. That’s likely the reason why Sony is offering their new Xperia Z with an oversize 5-inch screen.

Twelve South BookBook iPhone Case Review: This Book Is Thick But Useful

iPhones can take plenty of abuse, but they get scratched up pretty quickly, which is one of the reasons why cases are necessary. Unlike some, I prefer to keep my phone in as good condition as possible, so when I inevitably upgrade and resell it, I get maximum value. The BookBook case from Twelve South is an interesting idea, since it combines a protective iPhone case with a wallet.
