At long last, the much-awaited Android Nougat 7.0 update will makes its way for the venerable yet relevant Sony Xperia Z5. Despite being released nearly two years ago, the Sony Xperia Z5 is still going strong since its specs are not really that dated. It may prove to be a long wait but Sony has been one of the first manufacturers that has came forward to affirm its commitment in updating its large range of smartphones during the sudden release of Android 7.0 Nougat by Google. Recently, it has just released the Android Nougat update for Sony Xperia X, XZ, X Performance and X Compact. Next, it will be Sony Xperia Z5's turn.

Large LCD. Low noise up to ISO 800. Fast. Easy-to-use. Affordable.

Intuitive and beginner-friendly interface, plus-sized LCD display, 30mm wide angle lens
Not as slim as other compacts on the market, underpowered flash
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W230 is a 12.1-megapixel compact camera equipped with a 4x optical zoom lens. While image quality is acceptably decent, its main strengths lie in its enlarged 3in display and wide-angle lens. These help to distinguish the Cyber-shot DSC-W230 from other sub-$450 cameras on the market; never an easy feat. It’s also packed with consumer-friendly features (like face detection and smile shutter) and has an exceptional user-friendly interface. In other words, the Sony Cyber-sh
