Angry Mobile Nerd, 14 Mar 2016If Apple's products are overpriced then people will stop buying them. It's simple economics r... moreIt's not whether I 'can' or 'can't'. I won't simply because it's overpriced and overrated. Apple is basically assembly company, having very little of their own components inside of their phones. They buy good bits from other companies. It makes a good phone in the end, but they're putting the price high up. And yes...they are overpriced. That's why I speak with my wallet, not buying their phones, as many people do.
AadiRizvi, 16 Mar 2016The ASP of Sony is $422 and Samsung's $225, which means on average, the masses go for Samsung'... moreI beg to differ on that one..."Apple of the android world"
Everyone is reading out as Sony the most expensive in android, which is just not true....
Sony devices are just as xpensive as any branded counterpart, be it Samsungs, Microsofts, Htcs or LGs(slightly cheaper than the rest that one)...
This data only shows Sonys buissness decisions and device portfolio succedded in making them most profitable per device.
Out of aprox 35-40 mill sold devices now, Sony sells most flagships in percentage out of their portfolio( I dare say over 80%), which make for most earning per device, and least mid/low range devices which dont make for much profit per device. They significantly reduced that range of their portfolio within last year, meaning they are turning to premium(flagship) segment.
And thus come these results....not because they price their devices the most, Samsung flagships are still the most expensive android devices out there.
Other brands are not that efficient in selling their flagships opposed to their mid/low range devices.
Sony predicted chinese manufacturers mass product and price advantage, and made a very smart buissness move. Offer quality over quantity to counteract cheaper brands. The results are obvious in favour of Sony mobile

core5, 15 Mar 2016I would like to buy a Sony device, but the price is just too steep for me. We're talking mid-... moreYou should not compare Mobiles prices to Laptops prices, it is the decision you have to make. If you wanna buy a laptop, you would never spend money on a mobile phone. It is only a matter of choice.
The ASP of Sony is $422 and Samsung's $225, which means on average, the masses go for Samsung's mid range devices and Sony's High-End Devices (Compacts/year,halfyear old flagships). That is quite an achievement for Sony that it is the 'Apple of the Android world' in the pricing factor.
P.S. i used Apple of the Android World phrase in not a really appreciative way because raising the price in the Android World (the demand being elastic) is not a good step but Apple can do it because its demand is inelastic (to some extent) so yeah it can raise the price.

You know what, i have observed deeply that a lot of Sony users have been brand loyals and wont switch so price factor is not an issue for them. They are limited in quantity surely if compared with Samsung/Huawei/Xiaomi/Apple users but they choose it for its worth and not due to peer pressure.
Good to see Sony getting well in the game. But I guess this mean Sony phone will never get cheap huh? Poor Sony fans
