techenth, 19 Feb 2015Worst looking phones xperiaBetter looking than your iPoop and/or Shamesung design. Both have the ugliest device.
Long die apple,samy,moto etc etc
Sony pls don't stop making phones
I want to see u as No.1 in smartphone world
That would be quite sad.
Maybe they should not worry too much about market share, and leverage on their good brand.
Produce a smaller line of phones, with great features, and some tech that they have a market advantage in, good camera, Playstation connectivity, (why is there no PS4 style controller adapter for their phones) etc.
Was not sony fan,used xperia Z first and the last sony product but this makes me upset another manufacturer leaving the market.
Their omni balance design usually calls for a love it or hate it response with no middle ground and they took a big gamble using it across their entire mobile line up.
sell everything and sit at home .... no loss
Not sure how these CEOs working
No! They started making such a good come back with the Z line! Especially after the Z2. They are my next favorite top devices.
They are basically the only ones that challenge the Galaxy on an objective level!

For manufacturers, it's very competitive. More over with the growing chinese market offering flagship devices at a mid ranger price tags. I think if Sony is looking to profit growth, exiting the smartphone market and focusing on it's already successful imaging sensor market would proof to be a logical move.
What do you expect out of midrange hardware and zero to no productivity exclusive apps at a high end price?
Oh let's not forget about the bezels.
yeah shitty phone oem can't even handle an Ambient Light driver properly, should've go down sooner
[deleted post]Long live? Really? I don't even see HTCs on the shelves of most gadget stores in malls. I don't hate HTC, but just like Sony, there is still a lot of work to do. So still not "long live" for HTC, because they're still in critical situation.
It seems that sony had serious problem
And sony mobile seems to be saccrificed
High end z series but never be big bang success, and even can't follow galaxy series popularity
Anonynous, 19 Feb 2015This is good, Sony should stop already. I been an Xperia fan and had many Xperia since the Son... moreI understand your sentiments and agree that there might be a Chou there or an Elop. These guys are the first ones to get rid off. In the years that they are being criticized of their screens having poor viewing angles/not using an IPS panel/now is the inaccurate colors - it seems like there really is a lack of effort to provide immediate solutions. In the first place, they shouldn't b. SONY's problem at all because they produce TVs and they're already a part of the TV history. Why not really bring their "TRUE" expertise? In the cam dept., they're cameras are just "OK" and not the "BEST." It shouldn't be a weakness, but a "STRENGTH" instead, given that they make sensors. There has to be a problem with the post processing I guesa. In fact, I am really puzzled why they fail to pull off top notch images that can surpass every top smartphone. They have brilliant RX series and alpha. Why not in Xperia phones too? Why do they even have problems that shouldn't be their problems at all? I am honestly a fan of Xperia, but already losing my enthusiasm. I look forward to Z4 tho. I wish them luck. Apple and HTC are there anyway. I just don't love Sam, the looks are very generic and not ultra smooth. I used the Note 3 and S5 btw and I'm backed up by what I experienced.
Sony makes good smartphones but their design is getting boring . Sony does a single thing juzt waterproofing !!!. And their xperia ui is also sluggish.... hTC makes good designs .. Sony should stay on stock android ..that will be better.!!!

Blackberry isnt dead either, they still have cash reserves. Im currently using BB and i believe one of their problems is the balancing between consumer and enterprise functionality, BB10 has the disadvantages of both but not many of the advantages.
Microsoft isnt a dying brand as well, and the Chinese brands are improving fast, its good to see they are now providing less bloated UX, only Huawei is totally lost down the "useless features" path that even Samsung has started to distance themselves from.
All in all the its looking promising.
I think it would be good decision if they exit smartphone business...at least they will have very less losses if they exit...!
1) Sony always had wrong strategy...releasing new flagship every 6 months is just wrong...because if people buy their new flagship phone , it becomes old after 6 months...that's why people don't buy it and they are running into loss...!
2) They don't have regular updates schedule especially for the low & mid range phones , they just directly ditched Xperia C,M,L & XP & many others...not even providing KitKat...so customers lose faith in them and don't buy their phones again...!
3) There are still no official update for Lollipop for any Sony phones...while others like Samsung had HTC has already updated many of their phones to lollipop...!
I love Sony designs , especially of Z series...but i just hate their UI...its just boring , it never really changed much from Gingerbread era till now...!
I am not a fanboy of others...I love Sony , i have Sony TV , Music system , earphones...just hate their phones...!
