An online retailer takes pre-orders for the Sony Xperia XZ3, price and specs revealed

A British online retailer claims to have the key specs of the device along with the official pricing for the UK. And that's not all - there's a page open up for pre-orders that actually works. Still, it seems a bit fishy considering the Xperia XZ3 is due for release during this year's IFA in September. Anyway, let's assume the store has a solid source. The listing reveals some of the key specs, which are in contrast to what we've heard so far. We've had a GFXBench listing pointing at QHD+ screen (1440 x 2880) and a 5.9-inch display. Then again, Sony has never had a QHD screen on its...

Weekly poll results: Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ grab the MWC flagship crown

Samsung's Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ were unchallenged in last week's poll - the duo is the fan favorite of the MWC. With over 40% of the votes, the S9 siblings got more votes than the next two combined. Surprisingly, Asus clinched second place with the Zenfone 5z - the most affordable Snapdragon 845-powered phone at a price of €480. The 21% result isn't enough to challenge the Samsungs, but the number of positive comments is more than encouraging. Then there's a tie - Sony's and HMD's competitors both got 17%. The Nokia 8 Sirocco rode a wave of nostalgia (not to mention the well-executed...
