I have to say You get what you pay, but Samsung and iphone are really overestimated.
33% drop year on year...but still in profit. Many other will be dead before sony mobile.
Sony sell camera sensor to iphone and samsung, and now battery for samsung. Good job sony. Sony e and m series are not good but they are better than chinese with same price. Sony with x seria is on the good way.
[deleted post]I don't think so, Sony is moving forward, even they have many many many competitors, Sony will still hardworking to do the right job. From recently, you can see their software updates and security-patch updates Sony is release faster than the competitors.
They need to focus on their hardware. The phones look great, yet underpowering the RAM and having sub-par cameras will be their undoing. Considering they make some of the best sensors in the business, this is a costly mistake.
My personal history comes like this:
GF is a Sony Fangirl, and we were tight on a budget, so she bought a M2. She praised Sony for it's good audio quality, and I was (never done it) going to buy a Huawei phone.
Long story short, after 2 months of testing it with various headphones and loudspeaker, she asked me to take her M2 and let her buy another phone with my budget. I declined.
daimon, 03 Feb 2017I've seen the same news every year. Always drop sales.
Sony, you must listen to your haters. ... moreWhat do you know bout after sale services? If you live in a third part of the world nobody have after sale service done well.
Haters are always gonna hate regardless of what kind of phone you make. buy yourself a Xz and see if it is good or not. From my experience this isnt the same as Z series.

samsungpayroll, 03 Feb 2017Yeah but you make it seem like they invented the smartphone or something. 15 million is meh bu... moreIf you think Sony Xperia Xz was expensive you are wrong. Samsung, Iphone are more expensive than Sony or Lg. Furthermor.. since G2 and G3 how did Lg sales went and they redisgned their mobiles like crazy? Sony did design different from Z series...If you dont use it you can't know. Alkaleido is much better than glass on samsung.
Sony lowered their forecast for this year so that means they are not that confident themselves on their soon to be launch products.
JT, 03 Feb 2017Don't blame us, the customers, sony. Blame your self. Your service centers and your customer s... moreThis kind of comment again. I see it again. Sony is really really have bad customer services in many many countries.
Sony always launch overpriced and under spec devices. Please learn from OnePlus, OPPO and Vivo who are offer high spec devices with affordable price.
Have been using an xperia device since 2 years, as i look all the new xperia models i see no improvement it is turning more boring every time.
I've seen the same news every year. Always drop sales.
Sony, you must listen to your haters. All they said are true. Stop using mediatek, stop using plastic frames, stop using brick-shaped design, improve your after sale services, etc.
Iam from europe. Sony and HTC its great phone for the price. Samsung is too expensive, like iphone. So why i bye chinese smartphone if sony is the same price. In my country this is the price:
Xperia e5 145Â€, x compact 300Â€, xa 180Â€, x performance 380Â€, xz 470Â€, z5 320Â€, z5 premium 375Â€.
This price is from mobile shop, sim free or unlocked version. Samsung and iphone are 30% expensive.
And stop using the stupid mediatek processors, they such, low performance and high battery consumption, better use Snapdragon all the way.
They need to ship phones with better white balance(6500K like most companies nowadays) and fix the always blue tint in their camera department (why they put colour sensor if the colours are still blue?) , put better speakers because they are Sony and they can, make the awesome X-Reality and vivid mode usable on any app and also their sound enhancements, do a real flagship from the beginning of the year (X Performance was a joke, XZ should have been launched in the first half), do a phablet every year, not at 2-3 years (Z Ultra, Z5 Premium) and do real small screen flagships again (Z1 Compact, Z3 Compact, Z5 Compact, not the plastic midrange joke named "X Compact").
Umesh k, 03 Feb 2017Shitty cameras weak flash. poor display poor loudspeaker overpriced. SuicideMust be nice to have mono speaker, placed at bottom.
Cam that makes colors very light and not real.
Oversaturated colors on display and poor brightness , so you cannot use your phone in sunlight...
Just described a Galaxy
