Sony outsource most of xperia range from three taiwanese companies big news in 2014 -2015 i read on pda.net low-end xperia made by Arima communication and some by compal electronics And Foxconn.
what ever way sony make the product...once it goes there is no support available...my sony phone stoped working immediatly after purchase....sony shops nor replace or repair the product....Why to risk your mony with sony
The manufacturing psrt is easy its the R&D (research and design) that makes or breaks products. Sony or who ever that outsources products will have reference design specifying whats chips materials are to be used all the contractor has to do is abide by this machines put products together with little help from humans so no sony distinguishment is lost anyway.
Zony, 07 Nov 2012Bye Sony! You became like Nokia with cheap build quality.Yeah like those cheap and cheesy IPhone things that Foxcon makes for some other well known company. :-)
well looks like sony quality will be going down the down the kermit. yes we will see cheaper high end phones but will they be any good. design wise probably yes. hardware wise probably not.

Sony is a good Company, but from past 4 years it lost market in all segments of its group products, sony polices are regid, heaping on old glory. Sony has stopped Entry range, and also innovative design models,
But they Software is user friendly and best for usage.
