Sony's latest tablet is a high-end 8-incher with a mouthful of a name

IFA 2014 Completing the trifecta of new Android devices Sony announced today at IFA 2014 is this, the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact. The name is a mouthful but the tablet certainly is not, as it's a smaller tablet this time out. It's an 8-inch effort that packs the same 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 CPU and 3GB of RAM as the Xperia Z3 smartphone, the same 16GB of internal storage with a microSD car slot, the same Android 4.4.4 based software and the same PS4 remote play capabilities.

It's like a Z3, but smaller

IFA 2014 Alongside the Xperia Z3, today at IFA 2014, Sony also unveiled a new, smaller 'flagship' phone.

Sony's latest high end phone is a bump, albeit minor, from the last one

IFA 2014 Sony just announced the anticipated Xperia Z3 at IFA 2014 in Berlin and we've had chance to catch a very quick first look at the new device. Sitting atop Sony's new flagship Z3 line, the Xperia Z3 is the very best of what Sony is putting into its smartphones right now. If you're thinking it looks a bit like a Z2, you'd be on the money, because the Z3 is a bump, an iteration from the Z2 rather than a complete redesign.

Galaxy Note 4 vs LG G3

How do Samsung and LG's Quad HD beasts measure up?

IFA 2014 The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is official, and with it the Korean manufacturer has its first mainstream Quad HD device. With a whopping resolution of 2560x1440, the Note 4 goes toe to toe with LG's flagship G3, which we've been using since its announcement in late May. However the G3 and the Note 4 are radically different devices — Samsung's latest stylus-equipped handset is the latest in a long line of "phablet" class devices with pen input, while LG takes what it started with the G2 and makes things simpler and more refined in the G3.

48

We're out at IFA 2014 where Samsung's announced their latest and greatest: the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. And as we're wont to do, we wanted to compare it to some of the most popular devices on the market today, which, of course, includes the iPhone 5s. Sure, the iPhone 6 is due out in a week's time, but that's never stopped us before. By the time the Note 4 hits the market, it will be contending with Apple's latest and likely biggest, but there's still a lot to compare here, and two very different takes on the smartphone.
