I want Sony smartphone but the problem is the prices.. low spec high prices..but the phone quality is very solid its last long. I suggested to Sony company to make high end smartphone at lower prices like the Chinese smartphone.. ..don't compete in other company with same spec..just make a smartphone in a defferince way like the old days..Sony you are the pioneer in the electonics.you are Japanese I believe that you will overcome the crisis.
Sony can still earn aloot of money by selling its mobile cameras and screens to other companies,
The current strategy is entirely different from 5 years ago.. Sony should make some mobiles with a good value for money with some regular OTA updates like motorola devices,,, concentrate the enterprise segment as well.., anyway Sony is always best.
The problem with Sony is that they make phones.
Unlike Apple, they make gadgets!
Now you know who will survive.
Looks like Xperia will split up from sony, just like their vaio laptop.
Why Sony was not interesting of their smart phone for a long time? the market was weak
DantE O2, 09 Oct 2015so we won't here sony is the best ever again thank dear god, we got rid of sony fanboys.research firm telsyte claims sony overtook htc in the first half of 2015 to become the third largest smartphone vendor in australia.todays news.sony clearly says from next financial year onwards.which means from 2017 as 2016 is the next financial year.why do you all get sadistic pleasure in bashing sony-i don't get it.
so we won't here sony is the best ever again thank dear god,
we got rid of sony fanboys.
Bye bye sony. Rest in peace.. i will always remember you, especially your very bad after sales services.
FreezeGame, 09 Oct 2015Wake up! http://www.gsmarena.com/newscomm-14250p7.php#1037015you again? I think sony clearly says that things will turnaround. Can't you read?
That's not good because the other mobile companies cheat. They pay reviewers and trolls, they spend a huge amount on marketing, they call innovations stuff they do 2nd..
If they play like this maybe sony should play the same way, although i wouldn't advice it.
Everything you do gets back to you eventually.
Anonymous, 08 Oct 2015stop creating so many phones every 6 months, and focus on one good, innovative phone each year... moreHave to agree with this. What Sony needs to do is forget about sticking with the mobile market just for the heck of it. Their current strategy isn't working and it's obvious what's at fault here. They should concentrate their efforts on a new flagship once per year. A phone that'll bring new technology (a simple soc spec jump doesn't count) on the table that'll wow their users like how we've known Sony to do in the past (think 80s-90s). Only then will they make a real comeback.
Meanwhile, call me a fanboy however you like, I'm picking up a Z5 just to show my support. X)
Anonymous, 09 Oct 2015but Sony make premium phone, then Samsung and Apple are richer in earning in mobile division ... moreWhether you like it or not, cheap phones with great prices are the way to be profitable.
Their budget offerings aren't that bad... with pretty good Software updates in the past year or so. Especially with the new "experimental" almost pure Android Marshmallow builds they are testing out.
The problem is that Sony isn't too invested in the mobile market. They have good phones but don't seem to put int the effort to market them or even bring it to market...*cough*Z4v*cough*
Anonymous, 09 Oct 2015sony fans are always dreaming hahaha
sony is alway the poorest mobile company in this plane... moreI believe sony should focus more on the entry level market. People in Europe and America will obviously buy an iPhone. If they don't like they might buy a Samsung or a HTC. Sony is next.
Look at Samsung and HTC they both have entry level lollipop mobiles.
Sony still has none.
I believe sony should work to increase profit in Asia not just the west.
Sony went wrong in 2015.
All there phones in 2015 have problems.
Z3+ - heating issue.
M4 aqua - no otg,insane heating problem. Heats more than 60 celcius,no dualshock support, lack of storage on 8GB model.
C4- I didn't like the design.
E4/4g -no lollipop, no otg, no hd display
E3- lack of storage, ugly bezels.bad camera
Unfortunately E1,E3,E4 are all stuck at lollipop.
I think sony should start again.
My next phone will be a sony i want to help them financially.
I hope they should copy Motorola.
I basically love the omnibalance design.
Really hope they survive.
