While the Microsoft’s Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL are great devices, many customers have been disappointed over the plastic materials. On the other hand, the VAIO Phone Biz has a sleek design and silver-finish aluminum body. As the name suggests, the Japanese computer manufacturer is aiming its new Windows 10 Mobile phone to business professionals, rather than regular consumers, and the device not only delivers on designs, but also on some tech specs. The VAIO Phone Biz has a 5.5-inch 1080p display powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor, which makes it a mid-range phone. The inclusion of the 617 processor also allows the mobile device to support Continuum for phone in Windows 10 Mobile to turn the device into a PC-like experience. However, Continuum is only possible using Miracast wireless technology as the VAIO Phone Biz lacks of a USB-C type.
