Why exactly? Because their user base is shrinking...even further. It's funny how all the fanboys are like "flame on!". Lol.
Sony phones are reliable and have a great build quality. Nothing gimmick in Xperias . Haters kindly buy what u wish to, don't just keep bragging about how great samsung is as I have nvr seen as ridiculous company as samsung.
Anonymous, 01 Nov 2016sony's services is terrible in many countries. Thats why sony have many enemies. those are act... moreRecently I had flickering issues with my galaxy s7 edge display and ur beloved Samsung said that they don't have it's display with them so it would take around 15days to get it repaired......wow world class service for flagship phone
VoloKin Project, 31 Oct 2016Just checked the XZ in store. Cheap plastic built, huge chin, 2014 display. Real price for me ... moreJust go and buy burning sammy, u never saw XZ in real as it is made of metal and not plastic....grow up
Sony not including CDMA in any of their US phones is literally cutting their potential customer base in half.
Tourettes Guy, 01 Nov 2016Wow that's like saying a brand should not exist just because you hate themsony's services is terrible in many countries. Thats why sony have many enemies. those are actually angry customers (read: "Ex-fans").
Yes you're right, sammy's build quality is not as good as sony, but sammy's services are perfect.
And about the battery, i prefer to replace my battery once every 2 years. So I dont need Qnovo.
fyi.. in my country, replacing battery at the official samsung's service center only costs me less than $70, and only takes less than 1 day to do it. very cheap, isn't it?
Looks like people here want fancy useless thing instead of the reliable stuff.
AnonD-115391, 01 Nov 2016Not Sure why people are whinning over paying 650 for XZ. I use both S7 Edge and recently got X... moreSony use very boring and uncomfortable rectangular design, and S7 edge is far better looking and have far better hardware and the software is far better, Nova launcher... can be used on any Android!
AnonD-188058, 31 Oct 2016:) It does not even worth $650so crap like op3 and axon 7 might as well be 50 bucks max
VoloKin Project, 31 Oct 2016Just checked the XZ in store. Cheap plastic built, huge chin, 2014 display. Real price for me ... moreObviously you have not seen one in stores considering it's glass on the front and metal on the back.
AnonD-115391, 01 Nov 2016Not Sure why people are whinning over paying 650 for XZ. I use both S7 Edge and recently got X... moreI agree with you. People nowdays only looking for spec with cheap price but no quality. I've use Xperia E3 since Decemeber 2014 and there's no force close app or crash. And battery life still great
Not Sure why people are whinning over paying 650 for XZ. I use both S7 Edge and recently got XZ as well. Hands down, the class and build quality that XZ has, S7 edge does not even come close to it. I dont need the phone for taking pictures, i use it more for business, and anyday, i prefer to carry a classy phone in hand like a SONY rather then S7 in a business dinner. You want best Android and Email experience, use a Sony. you want fancy stuff with no sense, use a samsung. I am a technologist myself, and i know, when it comes down to quality and elegance, the only name in industry that comes close to Sony is Apple in build quality.
There are options to buy cheap build like huwei, meizu and one plus and all. Talk to owners of them and then compare. You will know why you pay 700 for Sony and why u paid just 350 for them.
Anonymous, 31 Oct 2016I'd pay $1 but only if it was the last phone on earth. Haha, on a serious note, max $350.3rd world problems. Tsk tsk
Herodroid, 31 Oct 2016I would give 450-500$ for this phone just because it is Sony - not more. Wow that's like saying a brand should not exist just because you hate them
Anonymous, 31 Oct 2016I will pay only 200 buck for it.Poor man.....
