Discover the new iPhone 7 and Sony Xperia E5

The new – watertight – iPhone is equipped with a faster processor and a new operating system. On the outside, the dual cameras (iPhone 7 Plus) and extra loudspeaker are worth noting in particular. The main features of the Sony Xperia are the great battery and the powerful 13 MP camera.

It was already great – now it’s better!

The new iPhone 7 is the same size as the previous model (that’s true of the larger Plus version, too), but the metal casing is now available in black, jet black, silver, gold and rose gold. However, the standard 3.5 mm headset connection has gone. Instead, wireless earphones are available, compatible with the Lightning connection, or an adapter to keep your current headset.

Apple supplies the new iPhone with 32, 128 or 256 GB of storage space. The new A10 Fusion processor is substantially faster and the device works on the latest iOS 10.The home button has been updated and an extra loudspeaker provides better stereo sound. Apple’s newest arrival also has two cameras, with a dual optical zoom (iPhone 7 Plus). The device is also fully dust- and waterproof in line with the IP67 standard.

A competitive, mid-range device

The Xperia E5 is a mid-range device that you can pick up in black or white. To stay competitive in this keen market, however, Sony has included a host of features in this smartphone that runs on Android 6. The 2700 mAh battery, for instance, is powerful enough to last two days and the touchscreen supports multitouch with four fingers. The most striking feature is the 13-megapixel camera, which takes very clear photos.

You don’t automatically expect a camera like this in this price category. What’s more, the selfie camera is good for 5 MP, too.The telephone supports microSD cards up to 256 GB, so you can carry on filming and keep your entire music collection with you all the time, without any problem.
