Amazon have a great deal on the Sony Xperia Z1 at the moment, reducing it down to just £385.00, Sold by UKElectonics and fulfilled by Amazon.
The Xperia Z1 is a fantastic Android handset with a 5” full HD display running Android v4.2 with a planned upgrade to Android 4.4 (KitKat) planned by Sony.
The Z1 features a bespoke camera combining the world’s largest image sensor (1/2.3 inches) with the highest resolution (20.7MP) in a waterproof smartphone. It also includes the brightest lens (F2.0) available in a slim (8.5mm) waterproof (IP55/IP58) smartphone.
The 5” form factor is a great size combining the best solution for both a decent media viewing experience and usable phone dimensions – we reviewed the Xperia Z which has the same dimensions earlier in the year and found it excellent.

The iPhone 6 is expected to in the market in the second half of 2014. According to reports, this smartphone is expected to come in two sizes, both larger than iPhone 5.
The smaller iPhone 6 model will come with a 4.5-inch screen, a half an inch larger than iPhone 5S, while the larger model will come with a 5-inch screen. In addition, sources also claim that the multi-colored plastic exterior will be dropped for new models.
It is expected that one of the iPhone 6 models will feature metal casings similar to what is featured in the current iPhone 5S. Sources also expect one of the models to feature a full-width frameless screen. Removing the bezel surrounding the screen would certainly let Apple match its rivals’ screen size while minimizing the handset’s overall size.
Some iPhone 6 rumours
Obviously, there is no shortage of speculation about what the next iPhone will come with, much of which seem to be entirely based on wishful thinking. Here are some of the features that iPhone 6 is expected to come with.
A liquidmetal shell
As Apple strives to make its handsets as slim and sturdy as possible, industry commentators are speculating that it may resort to Liquidmetal, an alloy that is relatively stronger than the traditional aluminum used in cellphones. Theoretically, that would mean that the handset could be much slimmer and lighter without compromising on strength or quality. However, this seems unlikely in practice.
A higher price tag
One speculation that is not based on any kind of wishful thinking is that iPhone 6 is expected to come with a much higher price tag than its predecessors.
Some reports suggest that iPhone 6 could hit the markets as early as May, 2014. However, most analysts predict a mid-summer or autumn release date, which perfectly fits in with Apple’s annual product cycle. Remember, both the iPhones 5S and 5C came into the market in October 2013.
