Anonymous, 04 Mar 2013You are wrong, they must increase the prices, make premium flagships with a premium price. If ... moreohh...here comes a market analyst.really,was wp8 released 15 years ago,or u r from another planet where people can jump to and fro from wp8 within a month or two of its release,which is presently found mostly on high end handsets.
First check the features and specifcations of LG optimus G pro and then comment any thing about it. Dont try to cmpare it with appple ipad.
Exactly. Whoever said sony should dump LCD for OLED - that's totally the case that would make Sony smartphone sales skyrocket. Unfortunately their phone displays are really their weakest point. Their phones are great yet the display makes them look low quality. It's not about the sheer amount of pixels or size, it's the fact that the display is poor, with backlight bleeding and terrible viewing angles. Vita has shown that they can use a pretty decent OLED. Phones with Oled-based displays simply sell much better. Amoled made the Galaxy series what it is right now, the display is the main part of any phone.
I hope Samsung, LG, HTC, or Sony Android devices have affordable price. We can see smartphones with 1 GB RAM are still expensive (for some people maybe not). Xperia P is more than US$ 300, the design and specification are good, the lack is no microSD slot G think, while Samsung Galaxy S III and LG Optimus L9 with the same price have microSD slot.
Beside Xperia P, other Sony high end products more expensive than Xperia P, like Xperia S, Xperia ion, Xperia SL, Xperia TX, Xperia V. Maybe it would be nice when Sony release more affordable price Android smartphones with RAM more than 512 MB and standard SIM card which categorized mid end smartphones.
Sony makes quality products but they cost like hell. Maybe they should dump the LCD and TFT screens use OLED or AMOLED. I am a big fan of Sony. They were once bigger than Samsung and Apple combined but because of their inability to act and adapt, they have fallen.
Joe M, 04 Mar 2013Hey Sony, you make great phones esp. the Xperia Z, but your prices are too steep. If you want ... moreYou are wrong, they must increase the prices, make premium flagships with a premium price. If you want a $400 FHD phone then get a China brand, its not like anyone will force you to choose Sony.
Sony is in a unique position to reel in those who are fed up with iOS and WP8, those people are very unlikely to go for Samsung or LG, but they have nothing against Sony. In the past many iOS users jumping ship hated Samsung too much, then they chose HTC, and as most HTC owners they soon had regrets, so they jumped ship again, back to iOS or to WP8, because they though Android was bad, they didnt understand that HTC was the source of their problems. Now with Sonys newfound fame the ship jumpers have a better alternative.
1234ashish, 04 Mar 2013according to me LG WOULD BE THE NXT leading smart phone brand.... Lg is dead without nexus. G pro is not a good phone, its too big. Better get an ipad mini rather than g pro.
jigsaw, 04 Mar 2013LG shud b in d #rd position. Seein its smartness in phones, its really deserve dat. Yeah you are right, having ICS on their flagship Optimus G was genius. Thank God theres no JB update for it in most of the world yet. Go LG, we want more ICS! Crappiest Android version ever, and we want more of it!
according to me LG WOULD BE THE NXT leading smart phone brand....
Hey Sony, you make great phones esp. the Xperia Z, but your prices are too steep. If you want to become 3rd...start by pricing the xperia z at no more than $400. By doing that, you might even become #1.
Sony provide sexy dsigns and excellent perfomances, but their prices r always insanely priced, just look at their laptops!
may b impossible.at the high end there will be s4,htc 1,lumia eos,ip5.xperia z is gud,but not a guarantee.lg too will be on affordable handset android market.also wid wp7 which wasn't upto scratch,nokia actually made a profit(not much of a market,though).when wp8 gets global,they may turn the tables. bb10 with z10 has turned blackberry hopes up.all of above manufactures r definitely going to inc. Market share but prob at sam and apples costs.
Sony can do it. it is not impossible. Sony needs better display tech. That is going to be enough. When I say better I dont mean a 4k one, even a 720p will do if it is IPS or OLED
After abandoning Sony Xperia U and Sola devices, no Jelly Bean and crap quality ICS I will never buy anything from them again.
LG shud b in d #rd position. Seein its smartness in phones, its really deserve dat.
well Sony should learn to build a proper flagship smartphone first of all than give a real customer service and than maybe could think to get the 3rd position...
In EU we have all problems with the Xperia Z , the screen is bad, the battery drain is a nightmare and the stamina mode mess up with the basic sync apps even when switched off
the led notification light is not working and before to get a resolution i have spent hours to find out what its causing the misfunction...
Sony xperia care operators have no idea about the phone and told me that the screen is perfect and so the battery...and for the led i should get an app from the store...hahahha this is a real joke...
Sony get real...
sony should stop tft screens for high end models...everything is fine....
