TheHater, 02 Aug 2017It's a very linear progress with Sony this time around.
Started off with not-so-impressive fi... moreX compact wasn't a poor device, for some reason they disabled 4k video which can work in 3rd party apps, only ip in japan (though all have the same build).
Performs better cpu wise than z5c though gpu is half the speed, and as brother said beat out the android competition to it.
I think the main issue was the x and the x compact both being released with similar specs, eating each others sales.
I can see the x1 series doing better with reviewers (at least ones that aren't primarily concerned with bezels), maybe at some point reviewers will start to include more real world performance tests. Way more important than benchmarks or the spec sheet.
So, SONY is travelling back to 2010-11 days with their time machine.
P.S. Dont travel further back, SONY - there were no smartphones on 1990's :P

Good phones Sony makes, but advertising is poor. All OEM's together don't even spend as much on advertising than samsung alone probably. No matter how good your phones are, advertising and marketing is what makes them sell. And the majority of people go for that, I mean humans are all part of the masses and follow one another. I hope Sony will sell more and more, but a bit of advertising extra won't hurt.
wowow, 02 Aug 2017LOL. you're so proud of such small profit. which is very very very small compared to the other... moreWhat are you talking about plastic bezels??? And Id rather have an LCD screen than a potential burn-in OLED
So glad to see Sony doing good and profitable even without this years best XZ Premium sales and numbers,.
That one started shipping in june and these numbers are up to end of june, so next quarter most probably even better YoY for Sony mobile. :-)

Nice to see them turning negative trends around!
Only slow but stead... moreturning whaaaaa ???
LOL. Do you mean Large plastic bezel and old Lcd that doesnt support daydream? i hope the other brands wont follow it.
Black Russian, 02 Aug 2017Erm, yes? If they're making significantly more profits then it's a turnaround. Are you stupid?... moreLOL chump change compared to the competition, if you're not selling phones and getting them into more peoples hands then why are you in the mobile business in the first place? Is Sony sharing any of those tiny profits with you nerds because you guys sure act like you're under their payroll rofl.
AdamKock, 02 Aug 2017Hahaha faster than iPhone yeah right...I don't like apple but apple is faster than any Droiand sony fanboys say xperia is faster than the fastest pc. LOL

Anonymous, 02 Aug 2017If Sony reduce prices and they don't sell then what? As of late, Sony has publicly went on record and stated that they are increasing mobile prices. There are WAY too many "what if" questions- that one is an impossibility.

As per usual, emotions run high when discussing Sony mobile products.
This news story is positive. It'd be nifty if the the increase over last years sales numbers included United States volume, as no US mobile carriers sell Sony handsets, and very few US retailers sell Sony mobile period. Can Sony rekindle it's relationship with US carriers and vendor's?
