Sony products are now very low quality.
Their LCD/LED TVs are not even last 5 months.
Similar case with the mobiles.
They are selling low quality products at twice tge the rate for profits.
I'm Z/SP/ZR/XZ user they all have Poor scaled MP camera results in poor video/image quality, That's why we see Samsung/Apple/Google using Sony 12 & 16 MP sensors and not the 24MP fake sensor which's Sony is using on it's own customers which results in poor quality, the sound even with stereo speakers is low & very weak camera flash, most of that the fast charging is a joke on XZ take 2 hours and 15 minutes on fast charging and 2 hours and 20 minutes on regular charger, i'm selling my XZ and no more Sonys for me .
Fewer people buying Sony because of their poor customer service and horrible aftermarket support for repairs.
If X Premium comes no more than 770 dolar, tjis phone is going to destroy Moto Z2 and LG G6.
S8 may be 899 and S8+ 999 dolars.
Sony wants to earn more per unit.
In their plans is better to sell 10 million phones for 600 dolars than selling 50 million phones for 400 dolars.
Example, let's suppose XZ costs 150 dolars.
If Sony sells for 600, Sony earns 450 per unit.
If Sony sells for 400, Sony earns 250 per unit.
I have a z4.
When you hold it, you feel its expensive.
I did not feel the same when I got hands on s6 edge. It feels cheap compared to z4.
Because you need update N 7.0 won't sell keep and everyone buy new Xperia X have N7.0 you waste. Please update Xperia Z5 family N 7.0

Highrt score than Pixel or V20
The X range is overpriced and they still have no proper successor to the Z5 premium. They also need to follow the trend of smaller bezels. Their phones are not sightly compared to other brands. Poor battery sizes don't help either.
Sony focus on mid-range to flagships range that's why the sold unit no impressive, but they make more the quality phone compare to others crap phone maker.
They need to slap a 1080p screen on the compact, then get a new design team who hates bezels and they need to stick with their naming schemes so the customers don't get connfused.
Zed13, 03 Feb 2017Sony must finally break the barrier of "3 GB" RAM at it's flagship(s). Sony is stuck since Z2 there.You are gibberish. I use Xperia Z2, it is one of the best smartphone from Sony. The quality is premium even 2 and 9months of usage. Yesterday I receive a minor software update too.

Sony doesn't even need customer services at all for how high quality their products are. I mean yes you're paying around 15% more than others and will offer you a lifetime product. With Samsung, you'll pay $600 for the S8 or S8 Plus then you'll pay another $50 if the battery will have some issues, then another $50 for fixing a faulty motherboard, then another $50 for fixing the broken glass. In short, you paid $750 for it while Sony will just around for $50 cheaper with the Z6 (if it's true) and offers the same damn things for better

Sony service centers and customer services are terible in indonesia. No wonder they're declining. Since few months back, their phones are hard to find in any mobile shops except sony own shops.
Yes, I agree. Samsung products are not as good quality as sony product. I my self like sony products better than samsung products. But I buy samsung products because they have a lot better service centers and customer services. Samsung are more caring with customers here. Sony in indonesia don't even care with their customers.
More than half of the population lives in 4 neighboring countries. China,Bangaldesh, India and Pakistan. China has its own brands. India is oversaturated. While around half a billion people of Bangladesh and Pakistan are ignored by brands like Sony and Pixel. In

Chinese phone not that bad and Huawei quality is equal with big name like Apple, Samsung, Sony, and so. Try their flagship class and you will impress.
Sony's service centers here are excellent = I rate 5 star.
My problem is that I've been in about 10 different shops where they sell phones (carrier's shops or independent) and none of them had any Sony phones on display or on stock! = True story, almost every country people face difficult to get Sony phone.
Sony should have a more aggressive marketing scheme if they want their phones to be sold to the regular people (the masses). Or they should adopt Sammy's techniques by flooding the market with low and mid-range phones. In the end those are the ones being sold the most, not the high-end phones. = That's good idea but cant work if Sony midranger more pricey than competitor and spec compare price with other competitor. They should focus on 3 aspect IMO: Price to spec again other competitor (for midranger), win benchmark&speed test again competitor (this effect buyer so much by strong marketing and campaign), flooding the market with low and mid-range phones.
I 'm using Xperia XZ and phone is one of the best in her class.
