XA is a garbage.. overprice a piece of junk. they should have been used qualcomm 615 or 617 to compete and save the battery. mtk is a power hunger chip.
sony is a technology heavyweight but they doesn't know how to play in smartphone market.
One thing Sony could do to help with it's sales , is to re-evaluate its 3rd party aftermarket support contracts. In developing countries. I think they use the lowest bidder, who in turn does not stock any parts extending the time for turnaround. Because I know in the Philippines, Sony uses the exact same 3rd party service centers that a few of the local brands use. average turn around time is roughly 6 months from time the phone is brought it. I had one of the local brands and while i was waiting in the service center, I heard a bunch of people yelling about how their sony phones had been in the shop for months, some had already went and bought new different branded phones waiting on the service. I know this not by owning a sony. I owned one of the local brands. and yes i bought a new phone waiting on mine to get fixed , a non local phone. because mine was in that shop for 9 months out of the first year i owned it. touch screen went out. took 6 months for them to replace it, 1 week after getting it home had another faulty touch screen. but local brands are by no means considered premium , sony wants to be premium but it's service centers treat their customers the exact same way.
Sony wants to have their cake and eat it too. They'd like to sell "premium" and overpriced (albeit good) phones, and have their customers pretend that the competition doesn't exist, instead trying to compete. (I suppose they failed when they actually tried to compete).
If Sony doesn't want to make make an effort to sell their phones in the US, I will not buy them. ZTE on the other hand opened a US based support center and offers accidental damage warranty in the the price of device.
Hey Sony, guess who has two thumbs and will be paying $100 less for a premium phone than you charge for a mid-range device? This guy (points at self).
5hyguy, 01 Jul 2016Sony Mobile died the very day they broke up with ericsson and bought the ericsson mobile devis... moreI certainly do remember both walkman and cybershot phones! Such beasts indeed, W995 is still king of music, and c905 still has the fastest frame capture.
But saying that Sony died when they broke up with ericsson is not true. You see Sony purchased ericsson's mobile share, they never broken up, just Sony took the upper hand. Good or bad, in my cards it was a bad move. Sony Ericsson had a prestige, a name to be respected back in 2004 to 2010. They were famous for superb audio and great camera capabilities. Now.. well I have the xperia Z5, and in terms of audio it's good, but nowhere near W995 level of bass and loudness.
Im a Sony fan and will be until I die, but I can't say taking ericsson out of the map was one of their good moves. They should had stay focusing on camera and audio capabilities. Not that the Z5 has a bad camera, far from it! But put it next to a cybershot and take a photo of a very fast moving object in a room.. you'll see which phone takes the sharper shot.
It's all about sensor size here, and the cybershot phones had bigger camera sensors than smartphones. Nowadays it's all about thinner and thinner shoe sized phones with more and more comprises. Back then it was about bulky durable small phones with superb capabilities. They had enough size to fit big sensors and big speakers!
Now.. well we all know smartphones have terrible loudness..
daimon, 01 Jul 2016In the home country, there is sharp who produce better phones.Recently Sharp had financial problem and sold to Foxconn from Taiwan. Now Sharp is Foxconn's subsidiaries.
Diu Nia Ma, 02 Jul 2016At least HTC still going strong with HTC 10 and Vive sales. Samsung the next to die Why Samsung though? Because their S7 flagship is one of the best selling phones out right now? That's quite dull of you though. Stop being jealous and go enjoy your own phone.
At least HTC still going strong with HTC 10 and Vive sales.
Samsung the next to die
Well what do you expect from India? when you produce ordinary phones and price them similar to top of line Galaxy's and iPhones. Sony is only preferred by a small number of people. when people aren't buying your phones you better make them compelling by pricing them lucratively.
ok apy, 01 Jul 2016the only reason people don't like sony is because of its cazy priceSo true
Anonymous, 01 Jul 2016I've used both 5S, 6 and 6S. Nothing special. Very simple phones with no customisation. I will... moreQuestion was about lag free and smooth performance from OS.
Which iOS delivers better than Android due to tight control with software and hardware combination
heh .. Sony phones are the best phones in world .. thing that is bad in sonuMobile is its marketing .. phones quality and design is the best in all off android phones even apples iphone .. using navigation bar instead hardware buttons and fingerprint in unique position and even best posiotion they are lovely .. their software optimised very good .. yes xperia x has'nt flagship chipset but it can run smooth apps and ui more than flagships like mi5 htc10 lg g5 .. just search in youtube .. x is not midrange .. it is a great flagship between competitors .. its image stabilization is the best in world without ois method!! and some people think lack of ois is bad thing in xperia phones !!! .. sonys marketing is crappy but phones are awesome .. just go to youtube you can see the xperia x ( not performance) gaming experience is great than galaxy s7 in heavy games like gta sa and assassins creed.. the xperia phones are for hardvore users not the users that get their knowledge in tv ads .. sorry for non-english :)
Sony Mobile died the very day they broke up with ericsson and bought the ericsson mobile devision. Designs and features were much cooler back then. Now they just produce android bars with boring design and specs. I doubt their survival in their home country as well.
PS: anybody remembers the cybershot phones and the walkman phones. even the old Timescape UI standed out from the crowd
