There's a reason why Sony kept losing money before when they tried to target a wider range of audience. People are not stupid, and there is no value in Sony's premium pricing. Now Somy know who are still willing to pay premium for their brand, thus they padded more margins for less features and positioned their products just to their own fans. And it works. It's a good strategy for Sony. Becoming more profitable is key.
The rest of consumers have voted with their wallet and buy something else.

The world is changing, everything goes dynamically, so we must open our eyes.
tapas, 30 Sep 2016it will be worthy to buy a LED TV than a mobile within this much price. than call by your tv only
Total waste of money.......
Either Sony has lost its mind or they are assuming consumer as fools.
October 10 will tell.....who is what.... :)
it will be worthy to buy a LED TV than a mobile within this much price.
somebody u dont know, 29 Sep 2016hahhahahahahaha .. love the attitude of sony. that price for a dying phone company ... rofl !!... moreFalse. Actually, be leaving the low-mid-range price points and focus on premium has led Sony Mobile to finally be profitable. As evident here, there are still Sony fanboys willing to shell out $$$ for Sony branded products.
[deleted post]True. However, pricing your product as premium means you do have to offer an actual premium device. Trying to sell a premium smartphone without expected features like fingerprint sensor (in the US) is a joke. Heck, Sony uses plastic lenses on the Z5 (hopefully they stop doing that with the XZ).
It is then clear who Sony's target market, their own fanboys. Doesn't mean it's a bad thing, Sony Mobile is now profitable thanks to this strategy.
Tourettes Guy, 29 Sep 2016Overpriced or not, this phone is still the best phone of 2016Words are cheap... let the sales prove it!
I cant believe many of non-sony fans/sony haters are checking out & is worrying about sony and their decisions more than the real sony fans.. shame on you people..
If sony fans are not worried about the price tag, why should anyone else be?
Tourettes Guy, 29 Sep 2016Overpriced or not, this phone is still the best phone of 2016*one of the best
Tourettes Guy, 29 Sep 2016Overpriced or not, this phone is still the best phone of 2016best phone of 2016? lol you wish
2 min of silence for those who are getting restless with the overpriced comments. You know truth os always bitter. F the quality, it is just in your mind. 1 year throwaways are now oozing quality. Take Huawei. Chill.

It is the second largest market of smartphones in the world.
All major OEMs are trying their hands at their level best.
Though It is a Price Conscious market, but Quality Products are always high in demand.
It is only shipping (transport) n other technical matters that delays the launching of new products in India...
