Here’s something you don’t see everyday: A smartphone unboxing underwater. British retailer Carphone Warehouse came up with the ingenious idea for the new Sony Xperia Z3 to highlight one of its biggest selling points — its IP68 rating for water-resistance — and it’s just as great as you’d expect.

One of the biggest differentiators between Sony’s new Xperia Z3 and its predecessor is the addition of PS4 Remote Play, which lets gamers enjoy their favorite PlayStation 4 titles on their smartphone or tablet. Only Sony’s latest devices are officially supported right now, but thanks to a third-party developer, the feature has been ported to other Android devices.

Apple’s new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus carry the best smartphone cameras you can buy right now, according to the camera and lens experts at DxOMark. Both devices achieve an impressive rating of 82 out of 100, beating the Samsung Galaxy S5, the Sony Xperia Z3, and even the 41-megapixel sensor in the Nokia 808 PureView.

Sony announced on Wednesday that it expects its losses to quadruple over the next financial year, and it’s all thanks to its smartphone business. The Japanese company is now making efforts to turn things around, starting with a division rebuild that will see 1,000 staff out of a job.

Panasonic today announced its impressive new Android-powered Lumix CM1 smartphone with a built-in 1-inch camera sensor and Leica lens. It’s the kind of sensor found inside dedicated point-and-shoots like Sony’s incredible RX100, and it’s going to deliver pictures you probably thought you’d never take on a smartphone.
