Umesh k, 03 Feb 2017Shitty cameras weak flash. poor display poor loudspeaker overpriced. SuicideThey might as well commit harakiri because this is no way to operate a business for the long-term. I see no future with this company when it comes to innovations or new designs, anything.

In Asia Sony cant really survive due to numerous other brands, in Usa there is Iphone world, whats left is Europe. Europe is for now divided between few markets but Iphone is steadily making its mark even here in europe. If Sony sold 15mio units in 2016 it is not entirely bad. But back in the day Sony was pioneer started with buying ericcsson brand and going from there. iphone didnt exist nor did any other chinese company or samsung or Lg. So i think that with completing Sony Xperia XZ in other unit this year... can make Sony back on track.

Sonyuser85, 03 Feb 2017Indeed, Sony have a much better life time usage than any smartphone maker till now. Even Nokia... moreYep i agree. Main reason why i wanted Sony is battery. Only now i see how much difference it makes. I have phone for 1 month and a half and i didnt use it even 50% of everthing it has. Xperia XZ was also very clean without any unnecessary bloatware. Surely i have few Sony aps but i find them usable. I really dont know why people gun for other brands. Japanese Sony is good really good. Might not be complete on all edges but Xperia Xz is worthy.
It would greatly contribute to the analysis compare with the sales of the other major brands, and see the evolution of the smartphone market in general. The graph that is exposed is only a part of the information.
Anonymous, 03 Feb 2017Less quality companies, means more horrible chinese or korean companies to Come. The Japanese are irrelevant in the mobile world, if Sony goes no one would care outside of their small fan-base while American, Korean and yes even some Chinese companies will continue to succeed.

The ones who arent using Xperia line should just be a lit... moreIndeed, Sony have a much better life time usage than any smartphone maker till now. Even Nokia nor Apple aren't reliable enough to beat phones made by Sony from 2008-2009 and still working good in 2017.
I had used more than 10 devices from 2008 to 2016 made by Sony, so in my experience I can strongly confirm that Sony it's the most reliable comparing to Apple, Nokia or Samsung.
Downhill with their mobile division only. Their whole corporation net income is still strong. They are still top mobile camera sensor maker. Those are facts. It's weird how I defend Nokia's old rival but time has changed.

The proof is in the writing, and most people don't care about that technical jargon stuff whether they are true or not.

Shipments down 33% from last year, revenue down a whopping 35% Jeez Louise! I almost feel pity for them, almost.
Oh look Z3 compact released and sony was at their peek, now they just dont have a clue what their doing. Keep wondering Sony..
Sony should be taken out the equation just like Sammy, over priced rushed out junk, customers only can take so much, good riddens to both them rip off merchants!
Alien , 03 Feb 2017Im from Europe and I have to say that sony's service centers here are excellent. Don't blame t... moreWell unavailability of Sony's phones in stores is Sony's problem. And FYI Samsung sold around 45m S6's and around 47m S7's and those are flagships not midrange ones. And Sony's total sales didn't even touched a half of that. Sony has to do a lot better than what they have being doing, product wise and marketing wise. Nobody wants to see brand like Sony becoming another htc and blackberry.
