Device Review: Sony Xperia Z2

July 2, 2014   By:

xperaiz2review

xperaiz2reviewThe Xperia Z2 (D6503) is the successor to last year’s Xperia Z1/Ultra/Z. The Z2 is Sony’s current flagship device, though rumors are starting to buzz about the Z3 already. If you are familiar with the Z1, you will be very comfortable with the Z2′s design. The main thing you will like about the Z2 is that the Sony has fixed the viewing angle issues that plagued the Z1/Ultra/Z. The device sports a decently sized 5.2” display, with a now-average 1080p resolution, as well as a quad-core 2.3 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor. All of this combines into one of Sony’s best mobile devices yet. READ ON »

Our phones are more powerful than ever. With lusciously crisp screens, GPS navigation, and quad core power, our phones can render a pixel better than ever. This naturally comes at a cost, battery life. Many people have resorted to carrying extra battery packs around, like the Lepow U-Stone or the RAVPower RD-WD01. However, there is a way to control your battery from your phone.

In this episode of XDA Xposed Tuesday, XDA Developer TV Producer TK reviews an Xposed Module that lets you control your phone’s sleep settings to save your battery. XDA Senior Member leducbao created the Deep Sleep Battery Saver module. TK shows off the modules and gives his thoughts, so check out this Xposed Tuesday video.

In this day and age, we all have a lot of apps on our phones and tablets. Some of those apps may have some personal information on them or could cost us money, so it would be nice to keep people out of them. For example, you don’t want your friends stealing your phone and ordering weird stuff from your Amazon app, so you might need to lock your apps from opening.

In this episode of XDA Xposed Tuesday, XDA Developer TV Producer TK reviews an Xposed Module that lets you lock your applications. XDA Senior Member FatMinMin‘s created the MinMinLockmodule. TK shows off the modules and gives his thoughts, so check out this Xposed Tuesday video.

XDA Forum Member zikkapp offers up an application that aggregates all your device information in one place. In this video, XDA Developer TV Producer TK reviews Device Monitor & Inspector. TK shows off the application and gives his thoughts on the application. Check out this app review.

Here are XDA, we appreciate competition. Without Google competing against Apple’s (past) mobile dominance, we wouldn’t have the customization and innovative Android OS that we see today. But by the same token, Android could stagnate if there weren’t smaller dogs nipping at its heels. We’ve talked about Ubuntu Touch before. Today, we are going to talk about another option, Firefox OS.

In today’s video, XDA Developer TV Producer Jordan talks about the new announcement from Mozilla that Firefox OS apps can now run on the Firefox for Android browser. This opens up new opportunities. It keeps Google on its toes, and it gives HTML and JavaScript developers an entry point into Android. Watch as Jordan shows off how to install Firefox OS apps on your Android device. What are you waiting for? Check this video out!
