They have the highest per unit profit earned than any other Android OEM, thats how they are surviving.

iPhone is different case where they is their high spec and price as no others competitor. iOS and Android is totally different two system and iOS there only choice is Apple where Android have plenty choice to pick with.
Anonymous, 29 Aug 2016I enjoy your reading your posts dude. You're straight up just telling the truth. to many pe... moreTotally agree with you. You know, Sony did its first waterproof phone in 2012 (Xperia Go) and Samsung did it in 2014 with S5 which ofcourse was a failure but the shame is that world came to know about this "innovation" of Samsung in 2014 which was done two years earlier by Sony. Thats how Samsung takes credit in the minds of normal people due to their aggressive marketing and penetration in global markets.
Andrew Tan, 26 Aug 2016Sony is not marketing strategy issue only, it price, it low spec now, it no changes, it never ... moreYes price is the issue but not low specd. See we have made the phones low or high specd, alright. If i tell you that a phone with 2GB of RAM can beat a phone with 4GB RAM? (iPhones 6s vs. Note7 in speed tests).
High specs is not an art, the art is, to optimize a phone very well that even on 2GB, it works like it does not need any more specs in it. You getting my point?
I see that you have used a lot of phones lately in previous years and i assume you have a lot of phone exposure now but you havent even tried an Xperia after 2013. I suggest you use a Z5 now (as it has got relatively cheaper) then tell me how did you like it.

Both the companies' financial condition is deteriorating and are far worse than Sony. Sony just had a profitable last quarter and are better off financially if compared with LG, htc and Motorola. And Nexuses, well no android phone can compare itself with Nexuses, they are in a totally separate race.

to many people nowdays think that being well marketed, expensive, and trendy must mean a superior product. Which is simply not true. It's crazy how much influence marketing has on people's willingness to buy something more so than the objective qualities of said product.
it's why sony phones are underrated. Samsung made cheap plastic golf ball phones with laggy ass touchwiz. Yet people still purchased those for flagship prices. It shows that people who buy samsung think they are buying a better alternative to apple. Samsung really did capitalize on the "alternative" people.
Samsung always made subar phones meanwhile Sony made the best premium smartphones with ip68 ceritfication way before the s7. if Sony had good marketing people would be buying Sony now instead of samsung.
People are stupid.

fake metal is worse than real metal.

z,z1,z2,z3,z+,z5,z5p,z ultra all of these phones are made from aluminuim and glass long time ago,samsung i guess notice i that aluminuim exist so they decidet to use it,on s6,last year
AadiRizvi, 26 Aug 2016It cant sell because of its poor marketing strategies not because they ain't good enough. Anot... moreSony is not marketing strategy issue only, it price, it low spec now, it no changes, it never fix issue, it unattractive recycle idea, all this make Sony down badly.
I change randomly from a lot brand but no longer for Sony, my last Sony is Xperia Z Ultra because Sony never improve since Z series and never fix it terrible output camera.
Below is all my existing phone I use before, I am not any brand fans, I only pick the best that time. (Except iPhone because I never like iOS).
My android phone start with Google Nexus One, Samsung Galaxy S II, Samsung Galaxy S III, Sony Xperia Z, Sony Xperia Z Ultra, Samsung Galaxy Note 3, HTC One M8, Redmi Note, Samsung Galaxy Note 4, Xiaomi Mi3, Moto Nexus 6, Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, Mi 4i, LG G4, Samsung Galaxy Note5, Redmi Note 3, Oppo F1, Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and my current latest phone is Huawei P9 Plus.
My future phone is targeting at Samsung Galaxy Note 7 or maybe LG V20 (need wait it announcement 1st).

People loves gimmick, except young male who loves gaming like you. Active smart young male who better something productive than gaming, girls, woman, oldman, business man all love it. And thats why Sammy still cant break S4 sales. S4 is king of gimmick.
So, with Bezelia only attract young male who loves gaming, and not all of them have money. And bezelia still have to compete with nexuses, Motorola, and HTC. Thats why bezelia is not selling.
Avan Dr, 26 Aug 2016Thats it? You mean press shutter button, it will unlock the screen in 0.3second, then directly... moreYeah but it can do it way faster than your Oppo for sure if i had to double click it and capture it. Its the fastest phone of 2015 when it comes to capturing pictures.
And for music, i just insert my headset in 3.5mm jack and music starts playing.
I get it that due to those gimmicks, Oppo CAN sell. If they wont offer such gimmicks, they dont even have a market reputation over which they can sell a phone unlike Sony.
Sony can play on its name and sell on higher prices as long as they want because people still prefer durability over gimmicks. Tell me when your Oppo dies in an year while my old Xperia Neo V from 2011 is still up and running and Xperia SP from 2013 as well. Oppo and other Chinese brands can only dream about it.

With Oppo phone, from offscreen i can take a picture with a single action, press and hold power button, done. It even doesnt need to wake up the screen. Thats called blind shot.
What about music? You will unlock the screen, find music icon, tap it, then tap play button?
From offscreen i can jump to this page to reply your comment. Can you? No.
What i mean is Oppo has attractive product, and good marketing, thats why they selling good. Bony even if they spend a lot of money with their product, they wont make it.
Avan Dr, 26 Aug 2016Even if they have good marketing strategy, it wont be enough if the products is not attractive... moreoppo ? better than sony ? lolllllll. they sell more than sony because they are cheap and support by the people of china because they are homemade for them and better services .
AadiRizvi, 26 Aug 2016And Huawei is the second biggest android OEM and set to become number one after their upcoming... moreOfcourse, i own an old Huawei phone. The UI is not attractive like LG and Oppo. But its excellents, better than my LG and Bony in quality.
Anonymous, 26 Aug 2016past is past. present is present. in present time, sony is not more than a looser with ugly design.Well thats a subjective thing you just wrote and i cannot argue on what is subjective, not if you dont even provide facts. All you can talk about is baseless facts, your opinions basically.
