The scheme – dreamt up by Sony to promote its Xperia smartphones – aims to help users find the ideal position to capture photos of landmarks such as Big Ben and Tower Bridge.

Sony Mobile spokesman Matt Beavis said: ‘We’ve got the tech but it’s about going beyond this and helping people to make the most of it.

‘Now with #XperiaSpots, we want to help people capture the best images possible.’
