Sony didn't focus too much on advertisement of their Xperia lineup, which is why they get low market shares. No one cares about their marketing technique, it's the quality of the product that we care about, and Sony always leads that category

You just stated that the iPhone 7 and Galaxy S7 both use Sony sensors. I thought I was going to be surprised by any means. Dude, you just lost my interest in talking to you.

Regarding usage of Sony sensors in Samsung and Apple flagships these are the links which will open your eyes. Bragging about your brand without any knowledge is harmful. If you still think otherwise go and talk with Sony's CEO. And you know what S7E's camera is rated above XZ in dxomark website which rates all kinds of cameras. Regarding audio quality go through GSMA's reviews and decide for yourself.

I believe Sony would be happy to sell their products to anyone who wants to buy it. It's just that the special snowflakes are very rare these days

If they are made so good why is that only 0.26 percent share is there. See the chart you are bragging about. If I was making a product which is best in world I would advertise it with my last Penny also aren't they actually in need of advertising as of now since their market share is pretty less anyways

Actually Samsung's audio is so weak, they cheat from everywhere they can, but the audio quality is still weak, that's is the most important reason why Harman afraid their image been degrading by Samsung audio department.

2. They won't be bothered releasing it if it's not a complete package product. We won't be seeing an Xperia XZ sold online and in stores if the product is unfinished. I wonder where did you get that logic though.
3. Exactly why the XZ emerged as the top-selling flagship phone of Q4 2016, because of it as a great flagship phone. Note 7 is just more popular, but it doesn't take the fact that the XZ is the better phone.
4. Successful in what? Advertising? How about the phones themselves? The Note 7 couldn't even beat the XZ in speed, that uses a weaker SoC, and isn't even a safe device at all. IPhone 7 and 7 Plus are out for 3 months already yet I've never seen anyone here in my country using any of it. Of course I won't be seeing a lot of Sony phones here since they didn't advertise as much as Samsung and Apple did.
5. How did you know? Are you working for Samsung or Apple, and know that Sony is dealing better sensors than they use in their flagship phones? S7 Edge has issues hunting for focus in low light, and the XZ doesn't. IPhone 7 Plus doesn't do as good as the XZ in low light either. Provide a link of your statement so that I can at least believe in that.
6. Read my 4th comment. I said it's due to marketing. Nobody ever touched the Z3 as the best flagship during its time, not even the Note 4 or iPhone 6 Plus or LG G3, but maybe the One M8, with a pathetic camera. If the XZ was advertised as much as the S7 & S7 Edge or iPhone 7 & Plus, the sales would vastly improve.
7. My point was never a dream. Opposite happens because a lot of people got to know more Samsung and Apple than Sony, but behold your beloved brand, because Sony has just started the comeback with the XZ. In 2017, they will advertise more and more to steal the Samsung and Apple customers, and will regain their legacy of the top-leading phone manufacturer in the world along with Nokia. S8 will likely not be as impressive as people are expecting it, so does with the iPhone 8. Mark my words, the X2 or Z6 will change the game of smartphones, and 2017 will be the pinnacle of Sony's advanced technology
[deleted post]Releasing and advertising are two different things. Even when Sony wasn't advertising, the XZ sold well in Q4 of 2016, which proves how great of a flagship the XZ is. Of course they're not competing in phablet category this year because the XZ isn't large enough to be a phablet

Don't know why earlier one was deleted.
First thing their phones are grossly overpriced a xz costs 50k in India for that price I can buy a S7 with free vr AND a fiio X1

Sony is a class meant for only sony people. We dont bother how many people buy it. Afterall we dont wanna look like common people carrying ugly and risky samsungs. We like the idea of only limited people having quality and sony in hand. That's exclusive. That's about quality you won't get. And yes if you are taking about camera, you clearly didn't try XZ. Anyways I won't comment about gsma biased reviews. You are welcome for camera challenge anytime

If they are so sure of their product they would have marketed just as Samsung and Apple does. Marketing will only lead to initial sales surge but to sustain it the product has to be very good. And thus Galaxy S/Notes and iPhones are highly successful than Sony's flagships. Which you fans can't digest. Do you know why Sony provides its best camera sensors to Apple and Samsung flagships rather than keeping them for their own flagships? Because they too know Samsung and Apple's flagships sells in bucket loads than all of Sony's phones can manage. Sony always used little lesser quality cams in their flagships. If Sony makes best phones then even after so many years only Samsung is able to sell in large numbers all these years? After Apple only Samsung is having sales figure to compete with Apple. Carry on with your dreams. But the reality is quite opposite. If note7 wasn't discontinued your beloved XZ would have got half the sales it managed with note7's absence. And this year too S8's and Note's and iPhones will be more successful than all of your Sony's. Live with it.

Samsung should be happy that Sony isn't advertising as much as they do, 'cause if Sony did, Samsung and Apple are going bankrupt. Thus popularity doesn't prove the true quality of a phone.

Even if a product is easy to buy, no one is going to buy it if it's not worth its price, but people did.
