We want sony ericsson back not sony and vaio, sony ericsson have very good quality better than sony and yes there is a difference.
hahaha... they sell their laptop division just to create a new smartphone competitor.
If they make a decent waterproof mid-ranger, Sony's head will explode.
LG superfan, 22 Mar 2017Better than bottom speakerbottom and back are both bad placements for speakers...but after all phone manufacturers care just about $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$...if they cared about customers all phones would have front stereo speakers.
Anonymous, 23 Mar 2017Nice mid Ranger for biz owners! You too fail. You mean " even if their life DEPENDS on it "
When you say DEPENDED ! you're talking about the PAST!
You should USE PRESENT TENSE on those situations .
Japanese business culture rarely sees something like this as 'going against' the former parent. It is in most cases applauded that a former sub division is able to make somewhat of a comeback. Vaio may not be Sony anymore, but the legacy has never faded. Plus Sony still has like 5 percent share holding in it.
Akinaro, 22 Mar 2017By Chinese I mean device, not Vaio it self :]
There are lots of companies, like myPhone, BQ, ... moreYeah, right. Dont even try to go back on your word. You said not Vaio but this is what you said,
"Yea, right, another Chinese copy-paste ready to use device with medicore hardware, that just have "Vaio" sticker on it..."
Stop making excuses. You clearly wrote "Vaio" right there. Just admit it, you thought Vaio was chinese.
vasra, 22 Mar 20172800mAh LOL! I call it the Sony disease. Anything connected to that company cannot fit a decent battery even if their life was depended on it.
Joselius, 22 Mar 2017Vaio is actually still a Japanese brand. Sony sold it to Japan Industrial Partners. Its not ch... moreBy Chinese I mean device, not Vaio it self :]
There are lots of companies, like myPhone, BQ, Blu, Plum or even operators like T-mobile or Orange that buy basic model of some noname Chinese company that make cheap devices, and they just put their logo on it.
One time I actually spend some time and found out that you or me, as private person can actually buy from 500 to 10000 such devices with your own branding on device AND basic package for about 30000$(1000 units, except shipping, its additional 1000$), it sound much, but its price of basic new car, so its not big sum for 1000 branded devices with package of your own design. + for few additional $$ they can install your own version of android(instead of stock one).
Of course devices them self are those cheap 5.1" mediatec/1.5GB RAM units. but for example if you run a company and want workers to use specific devices(eg blocked some options and installed your own company apps) such devices are perfect.
