Deal: Sony Xperia XZ1 gets its firsts discount in the US

Amazon US has cut the asking price of the Sony Xperia XZ1 from $699 to $649. The discount concerns the Black and Moonlit Blue Xperia XZ1's while the Venus Pink and Warm Silver editions are still at their original $699 level. That starting price was considered steep given the Xperia XZ1's unimpressive on-paper specs - the 5.2-inch 1080p screen that's neither AMOLED nor bezelless, the smallish battery and the lack of a fingerprint scanner for the US market.

Android 8.0 Oreo beta program for the ZTE Axon 7 debuts in the US

ZTE's Axon 7 has been pretty successful in the US, at least as far as any handset sold unlocked can claim to be. To appease owners who've been asking for an Oreo update for a while, the Chinese company announced back in December that the update would roll out this April. Not only that, but ZTE is giving up on its MiFavor UI in favor of something called Stock+. And now you can beta test that purer interpretation of the OS if you want.
