[Life] Xperia Z2 camera still going strong

Hey guys, it's been a while since I did a proper "Life" post on the blog. Lots been happening to the lives of the MBT team. For one, has found a job in the real world since April and has been busily working everyday since. With my life been hectic, it's been hard to keep up with keeping the blog updated and social life running. I've dropped my position as Owner on the GAC (Google+ Anime Community) and been focusing more on more important matters.

Anyway, moving on, it's time to make a quick update to the blog. Here it is. A picture taken from my Sony Xperia Z2. It's good to know this 1 year old phone is still running fine on Android Lollipop! Most phones start degrading in performance after 1 - 2 years but Sony seems to have done a good job in keeping the simple simple and less bloated compared to some other companies (looking at you, Samsung!).

Well, as for the future of MBT, we'll still be around. Currently I'm doing a huge overhaul of the MBT website with Rhycen. It's going to be modern, clean and simple. The blog will be revamped and some new sections will be added to the website. I am also planning for a proper full portfolio-type integration of my Chrome themes to the MBT redesign. Can't wait for it to be finished! MegaBubbletea, out!

Sony unveils the Xperia Z5

Sony has unveiled the world's first Ultra HD smartphone; the Sony Xperia Z5 Premium that is designed to do 4K video recording and playback. Sony has also released the 4.6-inch Z5 Compact with a 720p display, the 5.2-inch Z5 with a 1080p display and the 5.5-inch Z5 premium with Ultra HD (4K) display. Pricing is yet to available so you'll have to wait a little while longer to get your hands on the Z5.

The smartphone features an aluminium bezel with a glass front and frosted glass back. Whilst the battery is unremovable, you still have the option to expand the memory with the MicroSD slot. The USB port has been moved to the bottom and the handset is still waterproof up to 1.5 meters for 30 minutes.

The Z5 ships with Android 5.1.1 with very few modifications. Part of the minimal design reveals a fingerprint reader built into the power button on the side of the phone. As like many other Android devices, there are no physical buttons on the front of the device.

Sony also boasts a two day battery life with the Z5 and also a redesigned 23-megapixel camera with a larger sensor. Sony also claims the Z5 models offer the world's fastest smartphone auto-focus ensuring that there's less lag between pressing the shutter button and capturing of the image.

The Xperia Z5 will be a revolutionary device and we hope that it will live up to it's designs.
