Last year’s Xperia Z1 Compact was a first in many ways and carved a name for itself as a device that doesn’t want to be considered a mini in anything but the size and a company that doesn’t shy away from a challenge. Read more »
Motorola Moto G 4G turned out a great smartphone on its own and an excellent upgrade over the original Moto G.
