Lots of companies seem to think their phones are the best for content consumption, and that’s a fine way to market a device. A phone that can offer the best viewing, gaming, and scrolling experiences makes for an enticing purchase. Today, Sony is taking literal approach as it introduced its Xperia XA2 Plus, a phone “designed to entertain.”

What does Sony consider specs worthy of entertainment, and how do we feel about them? Primarily, the phone features a 6-inch Full HD+ display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. The device has rounded screen corners and still includes bezels, which is disappointing. At this point, I think most people expect their entertainment-oriented phone to be virtually bezel-less, but for a midrange device, this is acceptable. It looks like it also includes a headphone jack, which is by far the most user-friendly feature Sony could offer to people who watch things on the go.

Faster software updates are coming to the OnePlus 5 and 5T

  Faster software updates are coming to the OnePlus 5 and 5T Broken promises aren't usually a good thing. Unless, of course, you're talking about OnePlus' confirmation that its OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T models would not be receiving support for Google's Project Treble -- an initiative which gives developers the power to bring software updates to Android users more quickly and easily. Treble support will be rolling out in OnePlus' latest OxygenOS open beta, which has launched simultaneously for both phone models. A tweaked UI, improved weather app, and the ability to accent colors via a customization wheel are also listed in the complete changelog.

Sony ’s dire efforts to regain its non-existent market share has led to yet another mid-range smartphone. The company has today announced the Xperia XA 2 Plus which features a In addition, the phone comes with Sony ’s High-Resolution Audio technology and DSEE HX audio upscaling.

We don’t have pricing or availability information just yet, although last year’s XA1 Plus cost around $380. Generally, this phone seems fine. It’s nothing extraordinary, but it also features everything someone would likely want in a midrange device that they use for streaming. But overall, it does seem like Sony is trying to make upgrades to this phone line with slight display tweaks (last year’s XA1 Plus included a 5.5-inch display versus 6-inch) and a better processor with the option for more RAM and storage. Last year’s phone was also built for entertainment, but this year’s iteration will likely do a better job of giving people a place to watch all their shows.

Motorola is launching an Android Oreo Go version of its E5 Play phone .
Motorola only announced its new Moto E5 Play and E5 Plus in April, but this week the company unveiled a new version of that E5 Play that’ll run Android Oreo Go edition. It’ll include fewer pre-installed apps, as well as apps that are optimized to run on devices with less storage.
