While Judie continues to use her Sony Xperia Z2 sans case almost all the time I continue to look for the case that will be “just right.” Yes, I want something that is the right balance of protection, refinement, great looks and sharp, complimentary design. I hoped the Incipio FREQUENCY for the Sony Xperia Z2 might be it.

IOGEAR Wireless Mobile and PC to HDTV With WiDi and Miracast Review

Apple TV lets you access iTunes or view content from a Mac or iOS device on the big screen. The same holds true for Google Chromecast and Amazon Fire TV.

Sony Digital Noise Canceling Headset MDR-NC31EM Review

I tend to avoid device-specific accessories these days. My reasoning is simple. You see, I find myself changing my phone and tablet frequently, and I want accessories that will outlast any specific device. The Sony Digital Noise Canceling Headset MDR-NC31EM is an exception. They are specifically designed for the Sony Zperia Z2 phone and tablet, and I’m impressed. Here’s why.

One Headset to Rule Them All: Life With the Sony Xperia Z2

While Judie and I were together last weekend, we discussed the features of the Sony Xperia Z2 we find most compelling.

Having just flown to Israel, I have to say the built-in noise cancellation has now risen to the top of my list.

Huawei Ascend Mate2 Review: Big Phone Little Price

Are you someone who spends more time on your phone texting, emailing, checking social media, and surfing than you actually do making calls? I am, and that’s why I’m intrigued by some of the larger devices available today, including the new Huawei Ascend Mate2.

The 128GB SanDisk MicroSDXC Is a Tiny Powerhouse

One thing that most Android phones get right, and that Apple (and many Windows Phones) still hasn’t, is the ability to add extended memory. The largest amount of memory any mobile phone can be purchased with is 64GB. Thanks to the 128GB SanDisk MicroSDXC I recently received and added to my Sony Xperia Z2, I now have 130.57GB. WHOA!

This is our third Sony Xperia Z2 Case Review, and it’s the case I am using daily. The Sony Style Cover Stand SCR10 Xperia Z2 is the case that comes directly from Sony. Well, to be accurate, from Sony via an importer. The case cost me a little bit less than $30; here’s why am I such a fan.

Roxfit Slimline Is a Terrific Sony Xperia Z2 Case

While case options for protecting the Sony Xperia Z2 are not nearly as numerous as those for the Apple iPhone 5S, there are some decent options; the Roxfit Slimline Sony Xperia Z2 Case is one such example.

My search for the best way to protect my new Sony Xperia Z2 led me to the Spigen GLAStR NANO SLIM Screen Protector.

Poetic FlipBook for Sony Xperia Z2 is Inexpensive but Not Cheap

My search for a case for the Sony Xperia Z2 led me to the Poetic FlipBook. I was initially skeptical. After all, the case has an MSRP of just $14.95. Still, for that price I figured it was worth checking it out. When the case arrived I was more than pleasantly surprised by what I discovered. Inexpensive doesn’t mean cheap.

Sony E3 2014 – “It’s All About the Games!”

The Sony RX100 III Is Pricey but Oh So Awesome

I absolutely love my Sony RX100 camera. It looks like a small point-and-shoot, but it takes amazing pictures thanks to its huge sensor and performance optics.

Oberon Design is similar to other high-end mobile device case makers, because they offer beautifully designed items made with hand-crafted leather.

Mobile Edge’s UrgentPower DX 5200 Review: Immediate Power for All!

Perhaps one day, mobile phones will be invented that have batteries that recharge themselves as the person carrying them walks around. Until then, we’ll have to continue relying upon charging cords, AC/DC adapters, and extended batteries. If you’re still shopping for a mini power plant, Mobile Edge‘s UrgentPower DX 5200 is small enough to carry around for unforeseen charging emergencies.

My Sony Xperia Z2 Is Big, Purple, and Gorgeous

Of all the phones that I saw at MWC, the Sony Xperia Z2 was the one I returned determined to buy. With its 5.2″ Display, 20.7 megapixel rear-facing camera, 4K camcorder, generous battery, and its IP55/IP58 waterproof and dust-proof rating, the Z2’s specs were pretty impressive. I’ve purchased a Z2, and I’ve made it my daily-driver.
