Sony Father's Day Gadget Gift Guide : There's A Sony Product For Every Kind of Dad In The World

There are different kinds of fathers in the world -- some have a strict approach to their children while others are more comfortable with the nitty gritty involved in raising a child. Some dads are more adventurous when it comes to travel, while others are into sports-related activities. With Father’s Day just around the corner, here are a few gifts from Sony that every dad would love:

1. Enforcer Dad

These are the traditional disciplinarians who are tasked to set clear rules for their children. Conversations with Enforcer Dad would revolve around 70% house rules, 20% pep talk and 10% for everything else. He wants you to know that he is the boss and the law of the household.

Sony Father's Day Gift Guide, Sony Xperia Z2

Get him off your back even for awhile by giving him the latest flagship smartphone from Sony—the Xperia Z2 (Price as of June 2014: Php 33,900). Sony’s best ever premium waterproof smartphone combines its best sound, 20.7 megapixel camera, 4K video recording capabilities and its 5.2” Full HD TRILUMINOS display for mobile with Live Colour LED.

If that is not enough, keep him preoccupied with a range of entertainment right from the moment he turns his smartphone on with access to exclusive content that includes six blockbuster movies from Sony Pictures through Xperia Lounge. You’ll surely enjoy the rest of the night out with your friends without Enforcer Dad on patrol.

2. Business Dad

Money, money, money. Business Dad is always focused on expanding the family-owned company and chasing investments that can accumulate more wealth. You can gauge how he is feeling based on the ups and downs of the Philippine stock market, whether he comes out as Donald Trump or Scrooge McDuck.

3. Sports Dad

The Sports Dad is the father who is obsessed with his child’s athletic ability. Occasionally, he can become highly aggressive when coaching his sons or daughters to excel in their respective sport.
