Televisions

Sony KDL32RE403BU, £229

This 32-inch TV has an HD-ready resolution of 1,366×768 pixels and has a Freeview HD tuner. This sub-£250 Sony set supports HDR (high dynamic range) content, which aims to make pictures more vibrant, and has a USB slot allowing you to plug in a USB stick to view pictures and videos.

If you’re looking for a new TV to sit in your living room, should this be a contender? See how it performed in the Which? test lab with our full Sony KDL32RE403BU review.

Smartphones

Sony Xperia XZ2, £629.95

Sony’s Xperia XZ3 is launched this week, but if you don’t fancy spending £700 on a flagship mobile, the older Xperia XZ2 might be worth a closer look.

This Android-powered mobile has a Snapdragon 845 processor, backed by 4GB of Ram. It has a large 5.7-inch Full HD+ display, which means it’s ideal if you enjoy watching video content on your morning commute. Other features include a 19Mp main camera and a 5Mp selfie camera.

Is Sony’s smartphone worthy of Best Buy status? Our Sony Xperia XZ2 review reveals all.

Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact, £529.95

If you think dealing with the 5.7-inch display on the original XZ2 would be a problem, consider the Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact – it shares the looks of its larger sibling, but has a more manageable 5-inch screen.

Along with being cheaper than its bigger brother, the XZ2 Compact will also appeal to anyone who thinks phones have become more like tablets in recent years. And you still get an advanced Android phone with a good-sized screen and impressive overall specs.

Is this Sony smartphone mini but mighty? Head over to our Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact review for our expert verdict.

Cameras

Sony A6500 Mirrorless Camera (body only), £1,299.99

The price listed for this high-end mirrorless (compact system) camera only covers the body of the camera – you’ll need to pay extra for lenses.

The Sony A6500 has a 24Mp APS-C sensor and a 3-inch touchscreen display, helping you fine-tune your photos. The camera is protected against the elements, thanks to a dust- and moisture-resistant design, is wi-fi-enabled and can capture 4K video.

Sony Cybershot HX60, £129.99

Although it’s been out for quite a few years, Sony’s HX60 camera still stands out in terms of its specs and features compared with other compact cameras.

One of the headline features of this budget-priced camera is its 30x optical zoom, a feature that’s undeniably handy if you can’t get too close to your subject.

How does this compact camera hold up for picture quality? Our Sony Cybershot HX60 review delivers the essential verdict.

Headphones

Sony MDR-AS210 In-ear Headphones, £14.99 

If you’re a fitness fan and want to enjoy music while jogging, these in-ear headphones from Sony could appeal.

The Sony MDR-AS210 headphones are designed to stay in your ears while you’re out on a jog, and the waterproof design means they will survive in the rain.

Are these the best waterproof headphones on the market? See our Sony MDR-AS210 headphones review to find out what our expert listening panel thought.

Wireless speakers

Sony SRS-XB31, £129.99 

This Bluetooth wireless speaker has what Sony calls ‘party lights’,  meaning you can cue the music and then change lighting patterns to suit the mood using the Sony Music Centre app.

It’s waterproof and dustproof, so it should survive being taken to the beach or the park. It’s also shockproof up to 1.2 metres, so it should also be OK if you drop it.

Will this wireless speaker give you a party worth attending? Our Sony SRS-XB31 review tells you all you need to know.

Soundbars

Sony HT-SF150, £130

Sony’s mid-range sound bar not only connects to your TV to improve the sound, but you can also play music from your phone via Bluetooth.

It works with the Google Home wireless smart speaker and is compatible with music streaming services, such as Deezer and Spotify.

See how this sound bar fared in our expert lab tests in our Sony HT-SF150 review.

Sony HT-RT4, £249 

The Sony HT-RT4 isn’t just a conventional sound bar, it borders on a home cinema system. The sound bar acts as left and right front-facing speakers, and then there’s a separate subwoofer and two rear speakers to be placed behind your listening position.

It’s no surprise, then, that it costs nearly twice the price of the HT-SF150, but compared with most home cinema systems, it is actually pretty reasonably priced.
