viveksubhash, 14 May 2016i don't see what problem sony is dealing with...
they create the sensors that even the "phone... morei also don't see what problem sony is dealing with...
But I find a great problem: the competitors have a great job to trolling in every Sony post. I can see Sony is the bigger competitor to them.
mir, 14 May 2016Their CEO only likes to focus on the Play station business. The CEO of Sony Mobile is a different person to the CEO of Play Station...
I have lost all interest in Sony's phone since they stop with the z ultra . Bye Sony your following the wrong market . Is was about big but also improvement after the 1st model not make more 1st generation junk.
I previously commented on Xperia X's camera review that Sony needed a culling. Ax the CEO, ax everyone in there responsible for the wounds. Sony has to take a dive and be reborn.
This event might be an omen.

If X series is really meant to be sony's best and representative phones, its just too much of joke. I'm not saying that they have to release so much phones like samsung, but you can hardly see X series better than than samsung's upper midranges or flagships from china with the same or slightly lower price. I'm not even sure if X performance can be considered flagship without 4K, well not that S7's 4K is any better, but at least it is there. X series is like days of Z1,2,3 where difference was just chip and such... I hope they use different letter for next Real flagship or it may be their end. Them being so vague about future is worse than LG, hardly they can compete with samsung, even less with apple - and their every year phone/tablet/... flagships.
AnonD-411799, 14 May 2016not all but some z-series models will get updates & that too not for ever.Really confused now. I just hope that the X series won't be too pricey T.T or else I'll be stuck in Z3 with no further updates anymore
Carmanen, 14 May 2016I don't think so... ...i'd say at least Z5 and maybe Z3 series will receive Android N update, ... moreI hope it is true. Because I am planning to buy the Z3 because I heard and read it is a very good phone even though it is old :)
they will stop X series after a year or two, need to concentrate on Y series then.
Anonymous, 14 May 2016Does this mean that the Z series won't receive any updates from Sony anymore?not all but some z-series models will get updates & that too not for ever.

OzOne, 14 May 2016Seems an experimental mover from sony to prioritize towards X Series!!!That is what I was about to say experimental. Sony is using the X series to experiment on different specs.
I don't predict much success if they started the series with below mediocre and very uninspiring devices. Especially after relatively good Z-series, and amazing Z compact series.
AnonD-335162, 14 May 2016Z series had higher spec than X series. Shame on you sonyHow so exactly?
AnonD-310993, 14 May 2016After S series i had never seen good camera in xperia devices.Thats because you have never heard of the Z series it seems.
Z1 series and above had amazing cameras that didnt live up to the hype, but still arguably the best around
Ritzie, 14 May 2016True. However, some specs are lowered down in X Performance compared to the Z flagshipsOnly spec 'lowered' is display size. But that cant be called a downgrade
why sony why? bb tried going only high end they are on the verge of death....
