‘Xperia-nce’ the precision

Sony brings us the new Xperia XZ & it perfects the fundamentals of a great smartphone. Packed with innovations in technology, it boasts a photo-pro’s camera, an intelligent battery and smart features that adapt to you. And it’s all delivered in a stunning, evolved design. 

Our version came in a striking metallic blue casing, created with a high purity ALKALEIDO™ metal, adding depth, shine and brightness to the finish.

We were impressed with the idea of the intelligent battery life, it picks up when and how long you usually charge your phone for, so that I can spread its full capacity charge across the hours it’s in charge – so say if you charge it nightly whilst you sleep – it will spread the charge across those average 8 hours so it’s. It overcharging a full battery! If you want a quick blast though make sure your settings for intelligent are off otherwise you may not get that quick zap you need to get you home after work!

The camera with three times the precision – Xperia XZ comes loaded with the advanced photography technologies you recognize from other Xperia smartphones. They’ve also added triple image sensing technology to analyse, adapt and capture perfect shots in challenging conditions. Life’s best subjects are rarely still for long. Xperia XZ allows you to capture even moving objects – before the moment passes you by. Bringing together the power of an imaging sensor and a laser autofocus sensor, you can freeze movement in the sharpest detail, even when the light is low. 

 We found the camera quick to load and useful to have the second camera button on the side for landscape use, alike a real camera. It helps aid the quick load from standby to camera in 6.5 seconds – meaning you won’t miss a thing!

Overall it’s a fab phone with a good range of emojis for those that love to use them. Unfortunately I don’t get on too well with android myself, due to using phones with other platforms since the start of time, but once you’re used to it it’s great for those that want a quick happy snap to treasure your memories with or to use along with Spotify for smooth playing clear music.

Remember this could be your Christmas gift! It’s not long now!

Get the Groom on..

Male grooming and skincare brand, Monroe of London, launches in the UK.

The nature of a photographer is to visually record surroundings in beautiful and well-formed detail, Monroe of London was born out of their friendship and passion for quality products that are beautifully and faultlessly designed. Having each spent 20 years immersed in fashion photography, they were exposed to an industry focused on image and looking good. Taking an egalitarian approach, Luke and Gareth decided to bring that focus out from behind the lens to share with likeminded men in Britain and beyond, they created Monroe of London.
The aim of Monroe of London was not only to design an aesthetically pleasing product, but also a range that promotes skin health. Enlisting the support of the Harley Street Skin Clinic, Luke and Gareth collaborated with their specialists to develop the function to match the form of the brand. Monroe of London products have been designed to take the stress out of grooming, and their dual-purpose approach makes them something that men can fit into their daily routine. With a fresh, elegant signature fragrance and combination products that save time and confusion, rest assured that this is the only range you will ever need.

We got to have a look at these and we love the mini travel kit, the scents of the products are delish too! Especially the minty ones! We are adding this to the Christmas lists for our dads, uncles and boyfriends because we want them to be like Monroe of London. The stylish and modern & undoubtedly British.
