tonymancs, 03 Feb 2017Downhill with their mobile division only. Their whole corporation net income is still strong. ... moreSony only makes camera sensors and Playstation now. Eveything else is outsourced. But, its camera sensors are considered to be the best.
Anonymous, 04 Feb 2017Sony begging Samsung to use their battery. LolSony doesn't make batterys anymore. Sony sold its whole battery division in 2016. Its battery division was still suffering from all the exlpoding battery problems between 2006-2014. Plus the lawsuits from HP, Dell and Toshiba regarding exploding Sony batterys in their products.
Anonymous, 04 Feb 2017Sony begging Samsung to use their battery. LolNothing you say is true.
If the Samsung S8 explode one or two units, the Sammy will blame to the Japanese battery, they will trolling the Japan's Murata battery can't compare with Samsung SDI. This is what we call a dirty marketing strategy.
Samsung making flawless smartphone can't without Japanese battery, how shame they are and how the comsumer can identify which battery is made from Murata? I think Samsung must use all the Samsung SDI battery, because consumer must nitpicking to the battery origin.

Good news, Murata is darn good manufacturer (e.g. condensers) behind the scenes of many high-end phones.

Anonymous, 03 Feb 2017I bet Sony begging from Samsung to do business with them. Sony is going downhill. Downhill with their mobile division only. Their whole corporation net income is still strong. They are still top mobile camera sensor maker. Deal with it.

Davood , 03 Feb 2017Yes so what Samsung has to throw on the table himself? Judging from your statement, the moment he said "Sony' triggered your feelings. I get it lol
Wonder why such relatively small portion is outsourced to Japan. For marketing to be able to say that batteries are made in Japan to calm nerves?
When it comes to technology, Japan is number 1!
It doesn't matter in which country a phone is built, it matters the technology behind it and who developed it.
Anonymous, 03 Feb 2017Reportedly.. all funny lies. Whats the point in such low numbers anywayTens of millions of these phones will be sold. 8% of that is by no means a small number.
