Tann Hauser, 08 Mar 2017And UFS rom will most certainly be toshibas. ;-) sony doesn't use toshiba though they used to I believe. They use south korean brand for it. japanese companies need to step up their game so outcompete Korean companies entirely.
Tann Hauser, 08 Mar 2017This is a fact on paper that Sony uses indeed best quality materials and components for its p... moreyeah I think Sony is the company that has the most in-house build stuff. I feel like they should stop relying on hynix as well and just go to a japanese brand. Yeah, all the companies seem high quality and the absolute best. i believe sony tries to keep its production as close to japan as possible hence the price.
Still funny that my z3 says made in china despite all of that.

NFC chip netherlands, Bosch is german, made chip, almost all the rest are USA Sillicon Valley made, Gorilla glass american, motherboard Sonys, screen sonys, battery sonys, camera sonys, metal japanese, frame japanese, ram and rom korean Hynix (they dont trust samsung for quality components anymore)
All assembled in thailand based Sonys facility....
No wonder they are keeping the price high...but honestly, from the components insight, it seems at least justified.

Especially something as simple as RAm. Anything that requires high end stuff Sony tries to keep it as close as possible to japan.
Also what stuff is made in netherlands, germany? Id trust companes from those two places over korean tbh. i think Sony should use UFS made by toshiba instead of south korean brands lol.

Ali Bashir, 07 Mar 2017Dude, this Sony explosive batteries old fake story is insufficient to cover the failure of the... moreFor over 8 years Sony batterys were exploding in Dell, Toshiba, Hewlett packett and Sony products. Don't believe it..then google it...there is plenty of storys out there, even on the offical Sony forums. Actually, there was 4 recalls by Sony of exploding batterys on its own products and a total of over 12 million exploding battery recalls from various other companies. Its all history and dunno why you can't accept the truth
Samsung acted swiftly with the problem and has been quite public about it. Unlike Sony that has only tried to conseal the problems
Sony sold off its battery division to a Chinese company in 2016 and the transfer is still happening today.
