Sony keeps releasing new Android phones at a prolific rate with a few really good handsets on recent memory. Unfortunately Sony has had less luck selling a ton of phones with a propensity to overprice them. The latest XZ Premium tries to compete with the very best, powered by Qualcomm's latest 835 SoC, a 5.5" 4K display, 4GB of RAM, and Android Nougat. How well does it fare?
Intel's groundbreaking 8008 microprocessor was first produced 45 years ago, the ancestor of the x86 processor family that you may be using right now. While the 8008 wasn't the first microprocessor or even the first 8-bit microprocessor, it was truly revolutionary, triggering the microprocessor revolution and leading to the x86 architecture that dominates personal computers today.
The Asus ROG Strix GL502VS sits towards the top end of the performance and price scale. It doesn't have any ludicrous dual-GPU setups inside, but its GeForce GTX 1070 discrete graphics chip offers better performance than your typical gaming laptop. It packs a 15.6-inch 1080p G-Sync display and a range of other solid hardware in a relatively portable form factor.
