Hands-on review: MWC 2014: Sony Xperia M2

The Sony Xperia M2 is the follow up to the popular mid-range handset that saw the company trying a number of different suffixes and hoping one stuck for those that don’t want to spend a lot of money.When you pick up the Xperia M2, you’re instantly struck with that opinion. It’s not a phone with a lot of style when compared to the likes of the Xperia Z2, but at the same time, it uses the same design language well. The Omnibalance look (which mostly boils down to the unique power key) is in effect here, and does lend an element of premium packaging to proceedings, bringing a much better phone than the still-popular predecessor, the Xperia M.The only reason that it doesn’t feel overly premium in the hand is that it’s a slightly chunkier beast, coming in at 8.6mm compared to the razor thin 6.4mm thickness of the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet, for example.It’s also got a slightly smaller screen than the other premium phones on the market, and that display is packed with fewer pixels. If you’ve never spent a lot of time with a phone that uses an HD screen, then you might not see the problem, but the qHD offering here is definitely sub par compared and looks a little washed out and overexposed.Still, when it’s shipping for under €220 (around £180 / $300 / AU$335) and can run 4G, Sony thinks that such things won’t matter – and I’m inclined to agree. The phone is solid, has a 4.8-inch screen and an 8.1MP camera that uses a lot of the same trickery as it’s more powerful brothers.The Exmor RS sensor helps boost the low light performance, and the general speed […]

Review: Acer C720P Chromebook

Introduction and SpecificationsSince their introduction several years ago, Chromebooks have redefined our understanding of affordable laptops. They’re the new netbooks, using Google’s operating system based on its Chrome browser, are pared down to the bare necessities – low-power processors, low-resolution screens and a minimum amount of memory and storage. By stripping the laptops of extraneous features, manufacturers can keep their price down to $250 or less.As a result, however, many Chromebooks seem almost indistinguishable from one another. Because they lack defining features and are so affordable, it can be difficult to choose one Chromebook over another.Acer aims to change that with the C720P Chromebook. This 11-inch laptop sports a fast Intel Celeron processor, a comfortable keyboard and impressive battery life, all wrapped in an attractive and lightweight chassis. But the C720P’s standout feature is its touchscreen – in fact, it’s one of the few Chromebooks to use a touch panel. Of course, that begs the question: Is touch control on Chrome worth spending an extra $100?Same lightweight design and port selectionWith the C720P, Acer hasn’t substantively updated the design of its lauded, $200 C720 Chromebook. Like its predecessor, the C720P still features a slim, all-plastic design that feels surprisingly sturdy and light. My review unit sported Acer’s Moonstone White finish that proved resistant to smudges – Acer also offers the C720P in a Granite Gray, too. Unsurprisingly, the C720P isn’t particularly flashy. Small Acer and Chrome logos on the left side of the lid are the only adornments on an otherwise plain shell.One noticeable difference is the weight of this machine. Where the C720 clocks in at a respectable 2.76 pounds, the C720P weighs 2.97 pounds. Both machines are substantially beefier than the HP Chromebook […]
