Sony rocks and I can't wait for their new phones next year!!!!!

In my country some time ago, 1500 dollars can get you 40 inch sony tv.. but you can get 42 inch for 1000 for samsung.. plus samsung gives more features.

As for quality i not sure, but when u compare looks.. sony looks better. Sony is like apple for android sell brand name for price.. but when the competition is strong .. they are losing..

I do however admit Sony puts more quality in their phones then many other devices. PSP, playstations, stereos, computers, and other such devices from them have a drastic cut in quality

New generation ppl, care more about features and specs more then premium look and feel now. Sony need to make better hardware specs at reduce cost to keep up with samsung.. but not easy

Exception is apple, because if u want iOS u have to pick their iphone no choice.

I really hope to see Sony coming strong again. A mobile industry with only Samseng and Apple is boring.

I am happy that sony is now taking another step, starting to fight with Samsung and iPhone, you have a lot of potentials unlike other cellphone makers. Durable, user-friendly and less expensive phones. You will nail it, I'm sure!

Sony already have rivals for SGS3 and Iphone 5 like Xperia S and Xperia T.

The next Sony device is just a new device for next year.

Still my Bravia TV is great, no matter the viewing angle i cant find anything bad to say about the panel, and the overall user experience is perfect, i will buy sony next time again, especially after i tested the 3D on a LG TV, that was a big LOL and i dont know last time i saw something as useless on a TV as that.
