Sony revises Xperia shipment forecasts for 2016 down to 17 million

Sonys mobile division started off well – it was making more per phone than any other Android maker.

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is counted to 10 Best Android phones 2016: which should you buy?

You can no longer get the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, so if you want a smartphone with the stylus, you’ll have to dial it back to the Galaxy Note 5.

LG G5: a significant upgrade
