While most manufacturers have until recently stuck with a yearly release cycle, Sony isn’t content with it and has trimmed it down to 6 months. So, fast forward to September 4, and enter the Xperia Z3. Looking every bit iterative over the Xperia Z2, previous owners would not find much reason to upgrade. However, while they’ll be fighting a tough battle in the large device market, they’re simply going to steal the show with the smaller Z3 Compact. Read on to find out why.

HTC One (E8) available from 26 July at S$658

HTC launches One (E8) – a plastic M8 with a better camera

Not the best move HTC, I must say. Exactly two months ago, HTC launched their brilliant HTC One (M8) with a 90% metal body, the faster processor, superb UI and dazzling display. Problem is, it took the 4 MP UltraPixel gamble again, and failed. Again. Now HTC has released the One (E8), with a polycarbonate body, but a 13 MP camera.
