Its all about "SOFTWARE" and "COVERT ARM TWISTING". The companies who get that right (Apple in case of phone, Microsoft in case of PC) dominate.
Waste company sony they are unable to stand in market and withdrawing mobiles divisions.they are not using good and fast technology.they don't know how to tune market to sony Just they are going away to say bye.
Is this a joke? Sony's price/quality ratio was and still is great! Z2 has better build quality than both S5/HTC One. Better materials. And in my country you can get a Z2 with 400$. And s5 and HTC One are 500$. Only their design isn't very attractive to some (especially girls)...For me it is...
huh hear this sony fanboys:
"The company has been sandwiched between rivals such as Apple and Samsung in the high end and the army of Chinese companies in the low end of the market."
thanks for the info GSMARENA
Yo, 19 Feb 2015But Apple doesn't do either of those points you mention and they are ahead in the game?Apple doesn't make Android devices. While there are people that actually choose between all types of smartphones, the majority of people actually decide whether they want iOS, Android, WP, BB, etc... before they choose a device. If they've already decided on an Android phone (because they've already spent hundreds on Android apps), then they will compare Sony's offerings to their major competitors like Samsung, HTC, LG, etc...).
Plz keep make best phn and bit price down , u will get profit and capture market take time , samsung cheep class phn, Apple using name .. Sony is best .. Dnt wory keep patient
It is not that because Sony's flagship phone is not famous nor because they do not use Amoleds like Samsung does. The reason why they are struggling like HTC is because of the prices of their devices. Sure, Samsung and Apple have been more famous in smartphone making and even if they sell their flagship phones at a very expensive point, people will still get it coz their marketing is really great! If Sony will make better marketing of their flagship phone or make the price point lower than what their target is (though at first they will lose profit but it will do good for them later on). Sony is Sony and it will be a high quality maker of electronic devices.

This is one of the consecuenses of produce flagship devices every 6 months...

And, Samsung does make decent technology stuffs considering Korea is a country that invests a lot of money on high speed internet. Korea, by far, does have the quickest internet. Therefore, inventing good phones is a big deal to maintain strong.
Despite making the best smartphones why do sony mobiles fail?
Let me answer that
1) they dont have amoled displays!!!
2) They are yet to make a Note-like touch-pen device
Samsung are still in business for the above two reasons the rest of them are the reasons why they are decilining recently given their soaring prices as well.
In the end sony devices come off as almost nothing special though good or great for the prices.
I find them having FM in their devices a huge plus, though its pretty trivial sounding by itself.
Oh boy!... See o!see comments. At the mention of 'Sonymobile fit fold' all man begin comment for the post. See, make Sony no try 'am. If them try am I go send earth quake for them. In short, make I leave that mata. All gsmarena commentators una try o! Both those who hate Sony and those who advocate for their survival I dey hell o! Then to SonyMobile i just hope say una they listen so, make una step up. Make some marketing research so you can market your devices, because plenty people dey when una go break their heart if una try fold. So no try 'am at all! me self I like Sony like die.
Sad if true!!!! Stay in the game Sony but think out of the box!
Have customers in mind aka they way Motorola is going.
The future is to provide a good service, hearing customers, working with them, provide devices with a good price specs ratio.
they haven't realised that marketing is everything. all the z series are excellent but when it has to compete with marketing giants such as apple and samsung, sony has no hope in making their models well-known
Why don't they simply make their phones cheaper? Sure, they may lose some money at first, but it could pay out in the long run.
sony could learn from its rivals as well as chinese armies of smartphone like oppo that how to make a product .. i found sony has no camera quality, no clip board data saving, no gesture not at all handy i always need to use two hands to operate phone. while using whatsapp many a times (because of home key and return key is within screen) typed data is erased.. its quite irritating. also the plastic look is pathetic they must close the production or make drastic changes.

All iPhones were assembled in China by FoxConn. If you saw the video of YouTube of their assembly line on how they made iPhone, you would know the properties they used to make are quite decent...not from those recycled materials.

Sony deserves to be eliminated from the face of this universe!!
Who in there right mind makes a movie and blatantly display its competitor products/devices thus supporting its competitor???
