There have been noises among the fans that Sony seems to be slowing down with innovation lately. Many other manufacturers seem to be leaping forward ahead from Sony, and some of the recent smartphone releases did not fully showcase the true potential of the brand and their design capabilities. The new Sony Xperia XZ however has finally silenced the critics, and it is the true flagship that many have been waiting for from the Japanese company. Find out why we think so too in this review.
Huawei officially launched two variants, the Porsche Design Huawei Mate 9 (1395 euros) and the Huawei Mate 9 (699 euros). They feature the new Kirin 960 processor and dual 20MP (monochrome) + 12MP (RGB) rear cameras co-engineered with Leica that have 4-in-1 Hybrid Auto-focus (Laser, PDAF, Depth, Contrast), 2X Hybrid Zoom, Leica Vivid Mode and OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) tied to dedicated ISP chips. The Porsche Design Huawei Mate 9 offers all this but stands out by offering a dual curved edge 2K display.

Is it the powerful all-in-one phone tablet we’ve all been waiting for?
