They move away from major global markets and going to focus on tiny Japanese market. Good luck with that strategy
Anonymous, 01 Jul 2016Because people in US buy only crap iPhones. People in China but Chinese craps. Hope Sony good ... moreYou are as delusional as Sony, I like android but ios caters to a large majority. It threw Xperia from the top in japan and has a strong following in china
I love Sony so much. I wish that sony gains highest place in world
In other word, Sony's product and management right and the market (Indonesia, China, India and USA) are wrong.
Outside those country, you still see the same problem too.
Anonymous, 01 Jul 2016Ha ha ha... Sony is defocusing from World's first 3 largest smartphone market (China,India,USA... morePerfect comment. I echo the same. Sony is way too expensive and their India strategy is confounding. The big wigs in the Indian mobile division should have been expelled long ago.
The problem of Sony, at least in Brazil, they charge premium price, but the quality of Sony product is the same of koreans (Samsung and LG), in other times they had a better quality and design, but now its products is average, in Brazil Sony Smartphones are more expensive than Apple Iphones.
sony is loosing consumers... and will lost more in Brazil, China, Indonesia and India...
Sony mobile workers should be fired from bottom to top with the amount of money they have it's really annoying to see a money hungry brand. Low audio output crap camera UI overly outdated design and double the amount what it should cost. REALLY NICE MOVES.
Kapil Patil, 01 Jul 2016Only because people can't afford iphone does not mean it is crap. It is still best smooth OS ... moreCan't afford? Lol. I can buy two iPhone 6S plus at once. Hang? Lag? Hey this isn't Samsung. Sony never lag. If you buy Sony you pay for quality.
King Leonidus, 01 Jul 2016Sony mobiles are overpriced and no regular updates to android..No you wrong.
It is overprice. But they always keep their "flagship" updated with the latest droid.
Sony mobile are so costly in india
im bought xperia t2 ultra dual 2014 for 24500/-
now its selling for 14k
Sony mobilr are over prices with basic features
lenovo,xiaomi are selling mobile below 15k
example lenovo k4 note
first change your prices then you will get improvements
Dont know what customers needs. :(
Priced phones what ever they want. :(
Now Quit the market .. Worst game play by a great company RIP :(
I am from one of those mentioned countries. Here, sony after sale services is very very bad. Even the official service center in the capital city also very very bad. Go away sony, we dont need you and your overpriced products.
I believe, Sony and Miscrosoft products are THE BEST but lack marketing strategies and capture customer likes. Sony's Z series mobiles were promising, alas they stopped them. Many people were looking forward for their rumoured Z5 compact with 820 chipset and improved resolution. Similar is the case with Microsoft which according to me is one of the best operating system, but less people adopting it. You both need to make the public realise its values. Instead, here they are shunting away and cheap and poor brands fills their positions. Sony, Pl you are still in our hearts, change your stategy and innovation in line with the future demands.
