Grainy cameras... even on flagship. Corner softness even in flagship. Poor loud speaker even dual spkrs are poor. Even in flagship. Poor diaplay even in flagship. They never gonna make profit

the only way to save this mobile division is to sell it to other company (like when foxcon bought sharp).

As an ex sony xperia user, I still believe in xperia. Their UI, software system, media (video & music player) are top notch. Now i'm happy using Honor 8 Pro, but miss those things from xperia. Come on sony, surprise us next year, make me love sony again.

And yeah, there are technologies which allow attaining rx100 picture quality within phone form factor making few compromises with it's footprint or other dimensions. They just don't wonna
They are making silly excuses on losses like hardware prices are high. They are using same hardware as every other Android cellphone company. They are not even using AMOLED screens and are not even trying in design department. So no investment was there. The losses can only be subjected to poor sales mostly. They need to find the balance between pricing and number if units desired to achieve break even. They should opt out of least profitable markets and target only in markets where they have some market. HTC has started trying and this is the time Sony should too.

For example, if they made their Xperia cameras as good as, say Cybershot or RX100, then those two would be senseless to continue. The only way is to stop those two lineups, but I doubt it.

Every Sony fan surely loves its design, bezel less or not.
Mind you, Sony would again do the best version of a bezel less smartphone, just like how they did the best slow motion smartphone camera.
Their mobile is a great device,no doubt,but sony only problem is their pricing and marketing,they just need to make the price more reasonable and go all out on marketing like samsung did...and sponser any event as possible ,like they did with uefa but need more than that

I could ask for slightly more loudness, but the quality is what I'm looking for, and Sony is unbeatable in that respect.
I think what's keeping them from making the best camera phones is that it would hurt their RX100 and Cybershot camera series. If their smartphones have as good quality as their RX100, consumers will be pickong it up instead of the RX100. The only way is to stop their Cybershot/RX lineup, but I surely doubt Sony would do that.

I don't know what is stopping Sony, which is a force to reckon with in camera, audio equipment, and gaming device categories, from making a stellar smartphone that can be seen in the same breath as their PS4 dominates its opponents. Sony has got the wherewithal to do it but still it underperforms in mobile division. Hope their reported departure from boring designs bring the best out of them.
Sony's phone design is great. The main shortcomings are weak stereospeakers, awful camera. They should ask developers of the rx100 series how to make good cams. Otherwise they are dead
It was supposed to be an increase, but the cancer of bezel less trend hurted it so much. It's like it's just one thing that changed the mood of their sales.
People be like "What good is a smartphone when it's got large bezels?"
Here's to hope that Mirai design would salvage the credit that they deserve at the very beginning.
We Sony fans are sincerely hoping for a big comeback next year.
Anonymous, 01 Nov 2017mirai will be just another huge bezel plastic thing. mehFalse! Mirai will likely be a "bezelless", 2:1, high quality plastic mixed with some glass and metal phone. OmniBalance is shown as a boxy slab that as implied, put your finger on the middle part of the phone and it'll balance itself (equal distribution).
