Avan Dr, 26 Jul 2016You know what the reason behind no fingerprint in US? planning exit US, china and india market... moreYeah I'd read before it was really b/c they didn't want to pay the extra money for the patent. All it does is leave a bad taste in people's mouths. You can't claim to be the best but then withhold something as important (and popular) as a fingerprint sensor from your customers. If Sony Mobile (and Sony's CEO) had more balls 3-4 years ago, by now, they'd be in a MUCH different situation with regards to how well the Xperia line sells. They wouldn't need to think about cost-cutting BS. You see Samsung or even HTC cost-cutting on US releases?? Nope. They have better sense than that.
Exactly man. They lost their nerve, and now we're ALL suffering because of it. Of course, I'll just keep buying int'l Xperia models I guess, so as long as they're available AND work with the major US carriers, it'll be fine. But maybe Sony Mobile should strive for something MORE?!

No fingerprint for us is bcz of patent related issue, they don't want to pay, avoid to pay and avoid wasting money in the court, they play safe.
Exiting big market means they give up, small sales and huge operating cost. In this situation good company will think about 'what people want', how to rise the sales again, not give up.

Well just b/c they started seeing their shares "surge" doesn't mean Sony Mobile is off the hook. Instead of firing people, they SHOULD be hiring. Had they put more money in R&D, and also, ADVERTISING.......and releasing the phones ON TIME and THROUGH CARRIERS, they would've sold a TON of phones I'm sure. People are so seduced by Samsung and Apple, but I think overall Sony's Xperia line is better. But they have to make things perfect...........any issues with the phone have to be addressed IMMEDIATELY (i.e. past Stamina Mode issues). Sony Mobile's customer service sux too. If there's a problem or question, they usually don't offer much help. That needs to be changed. There is still MUCH work that needs to be done.
Samsung gives a lot of promotions and an overall strong (though overrated IMO) line of flagship phones. Apple doesn't do promotions, but that's b/c they don't have to. They're Apple. I feel like Sony Mobile has MUCH more in common with Apple than Samsung, though more so in other countries. Here in the US, that's def not the case. Sony Mobile needs to make their phones and the experience of using them just AS EASY as it is using an iPhone. Of course, being an Android phone, that is much harder, but I think it can be done. A lot of ppl who have iPhones already say if they had to buy an Android it'd prob be Sony, at least reviewers I've read say that. It's about class. Samsung just recently got classy, but Apple and Sony have always been. My point here is Sony has to make everyone (esp here in the US) realize how great their phones are and that they have A LOT to offer. That only comes from doing everything I said above. They're not being nearly aggressive as they should be.

That's THREE YEAR WARRANTY ... morewarranty in his countries means nothing.
If he brings his phone to the "Official" service center in the capital city. The technicians in there will try to void his warranty. Now you know how terrible sony's service in his countries. Actually.. in his country sony outsources their services to other "incapable" company. I dont know why sony do this.. probably to reduce costs??
I know it because i ever worked in his country, and many ex-sony fans friends told me that.
Anonymous, 25 Jul 2016sony have very bad after sales services in your country. You better choose other brands.?!?

That's THREE YEAR WARRANTY on a smartphone.
That's A year more than other product fans actually even use their purchases.

He also fragments the business, so all business should be profitable by themselves not to rely on other lucrative business.
The only good thing is tech sharing. So even if Sony mobile RD have not resulted anything since 2012, they still get shared tech from other Sony, like screen tech, sound tech, and contents from Sony music and sony pictures, exclusive camera sensors from Sony semiconductor and solutions.

Well if what you said is true, that's awful b/c R&D is what gives companies their edge, so cutting back on funding for that dept is beyond stupid. I am so tired of waiting for them to "wake up" though. They just keep slipping every year, despite that I still LOVE their phones. Just wish I could have a shot at running things. I could make Sony Mobile KING in the US and the world if I just had a chance to. lol People would be like "Sam-what?!" and "iWho?!" LOL

He isn't as powerful as other ceo, like Apple CEO, or Xiaomi CEO. After finished Ericsson acquisition in 2012 they lost almost all their cash. Then Sony new CEO (more powerful than Sony mobile CEO) Kazuo Hirai came.
We don't know exactly what happened there. What should he does is bailing sony mobile, so it can run the business properly. But he made cost cutting programe instead, n focused on profitable business, what a fatal mistake. Sony mobile cutted a lot cost in RD and marketing, and saved it for production dept.
