Let’s start this week with something new, as Sony Mobile’s team in Sweden introduced the world’s first game quiz on Instagram this week – Xperia Pic Quiz

Screen Shot 2016-02-12 at 12.34.43The new concept consisted of 5 levels; Sharpness, Zoom, Slow motion, Auto Focus and Colour depth – with each stage encouraging users to crack the individual problems, resulting in the chance for them to win an Xperia Z5 smartphone.

This weekend marks Valentine’s Day, so prepare for flowers, chocolates and lots and lots of pink, ahem.
