If all the sony fans in the comments actually bought a flagship Xperia,Sony wouldn't be in such a dire situation.
Anonymous, 01 Nov 2017Battery and hardware design sucks.At the end of the day may Sony XZ1 compact has still 78% battery left... not bad at all!
Sony make great phones but there designs just suck. You look at your phone all day you want something nice to look out not just a brick which is what all sony phones look like, there damb ugly not notch in the screen ugly but almost.
Serves them right. They truly believe that by keeping some dramatic changes such as lockscreen, clock widget or focus control for older models would somehow benefit them. Their job is not to set things right but to see them right. Two thumbs up!
Sony is NEVER going to give up on there mobile division, EVER. Smartphone biz is one of the most lucrative and steady-growing investment any company can step into currently.
Might be saturated with companies here and there but it simply will be foolish for sony to give up. Will literally place them in a bad position as far as tech reputation, credibility and product sales is concerned.
kaz have said it all, they are simply waiting for a sort of paradigm shift to pounce with whatever arsenal they are cooking up or had before.
Alright, take care y'all.
60ez, 01 Nov 2017i dont think so. all sony fanboys are huge bezel lovers. making bezel-less means losing fanboy... moreI love bezelless designs and bezel is also welcome. The most important it must be very sturdy durable practical in real life and gorgeous unique.
60ez, 01 Nov 2017i dont think so. sony's slowmo is half baked. useless because it only last for 0.2 second. If you watching the Super slow motions on documentary channel, they also use it for short periods, they don't use the super slow motions for a long periods, this is because the specify times to be highlighted,
example runners finish the line, photographer will capture the super slow motions on runners crossing the line, they won't take a very long record super slow motions from the starting to competition endings!
seems like many of you didnt read the article
their sales are rising which means they sell more phones
their profit is less but sales are more so its still a very good news for them
Sony lose users xperia win!! My xzp cost 600 euros + free headphones 300 euros cost.
Apple and xamxung win money and users lose, they paid more for less.
1000 euros for obsolets and slowers phones.
Anonymous, 01 Nov 2017Sad for sony to suffer loss in mobile, but hey, even LG with their amazing offering still suff... moreLG is stupid because they shipped G6 using last year processor model and LCD screen. Previous Gs were too much experimenting and also LCD.
If G7 uses oled next year, I will consider it for replacing my S7.
Sony doesn't have oled phone. That's the problem. No way they can compete with Samsung using LCD screen.
I used several Sony phones in the past. Their android software is the best but hardware spec is not.
boink boink, 01 Nov 2017sony won't extend their mobile division's life anymore. next year we can finally say bye bye t... moreYou LOL guys indeed lol a lot for being wrong year after year and five years in a row now.
Is this LOL a cure for dumb or sth?
Anonymous, 01 Nov 2017Do you mean Sonys 960fps camera that only works for a max of 0.2 seconds ? ....another gimmick... moreIt is hardware limitation.
I could only work because the sensor has 1GB ram inside to storage all this data for a moment.
0.5s of 960@HD is much more data than minutes of 4K.
At least XZP does not have 4K limited in 8 min like other flagships. You can record 2h if you want, then watch it on the phone.
Edge screen is gimmick. Phones get more fragile and edge have annoying reflex.
