Having pc with windows that you play games on is already win for microsoft in number of customers. Soon it will be even more visible with better connection to xbox and streaming that microsoft will offer. Actually that double number of sold consoles should be alarming for sony.
Vegetaholic, 19 Jan 2018Thanks for confirming what you going to leave smartphone market, but we knew it already, just ... moreNot innovate? I did find 4k hdr in 5 inches innovation. 3d scanning and 960fps video. I did find their design unique and not following trends. Sony is leading and knows it, they are different and doesn't need exploding phones to innovate.
So you want innovation? Please name one other phone that has a 4k screen, name one other phone that has a camera able to achieve 960fps, even for a second. Name one phone that looks like a Sony phone and it's not.
You can't atm, so why the hate?

When most prefer ps4 to develop on and then port the game to xbone.
No Sony is leading here. I never heard of play and neither your neighbour, when everyone knows playstation. Even your grandfather.
Vineet290, 19 Jan 2018XA2 has better aspects than Samsung A8+?? You should check once again. :)Both have fast charge.
But XA2 has 4K and 120fps slow mo.
A8 is water resistance .
A8 is 75.8% and XA2 is 75.0% screen to body ratio. No big difference ;)
Thanks for confirming what you going to leave smartphone market, but we knew it already, just look at your market share and profits, that's what you get when you do everything last and don't innovate :) Sony is great company in overall but it's mobile division is horrible, and head of it, should be fired immidiatly
Denis Thomas, 18 Jan 2018They lead buddy. Ever heard of PS4? Well ask your boy next door. Sony is leading Thats what I mean, you got computer? Ever heard of play anywhere? Sure, sony was first, but microsoft's got more products(theoretically then also possible customers) on which you can or will be able to play. Same as when you got apple watch and you love it, you will start thinking how great iphone would be...
Anonymous , 18 Jan 2018Every division is here to stay.Man thats a lie.
They closed their Laptom department.
Sony Vaio is no more.
You know what?
Sony Laptop, Notebook for 1000 eur had a same or even worse specs than same from HP.
And because it was super expensive nobody bought it.
Same going with present A8 Samsung. The price is so high nobody will buy A8 not yet maybe after several months but now nobody not even a die hard fans.
NiJon, 18 Jan 2018Get rid of all the westerners influence in the corporation, stay true to the japanese culture.... moreThats kind of true but western business have their own advantages. They are FAST although not as fast as Chinese but they are far more innovative.
At the end of the day, Sony is a business and its too big of a company to follow just Japanese business culture. If it operated only in japan then maybe, but its a global company with multiple business including movies and TV channels.
dragonov, 18 Jan 2018xperia phones are here to stay, phones may not be?
What is that a kind of oxymoron?
What do... moreIts quite clear,
he has envisioned some different concept of communication device beyond a smartphone....so he explained he will make sure Sony stays in mobile comm market, not for smartphones per se (ie "just for the sake of"), but to also be relevant (hopefuly a leader) in that envisioned concept of his, once it becomes reality.
What it is, nobody knows...

The future of communication is not phone shaped. . . .
Sony has innovative and quality that is all the way. . . .
Sorry bro. Just checked my whole house. I've got 2x sony tvs, 1x lg tv, 1x whirlpool washing machine, 1x fisher paykel dryer, westinghouse deep freeze, lg microwave, a 2x lenovo laptops and a HP, sony surround sound, Lg Blu ray, PS4 Pro, Panasonic DVR and finally 1x samsung fridge. oh forgot 1x sony phone, 1x htc phone 1x iphone 2x ipads and a leapfrog pad for my daughter. SO all up 1/21 devices is samsung. Kind of a big stretch to your claim of almost every appliance has a samsung sticker. they may have a samsung manufactured part but thats not a sticker.
Ali Bashir, 18 Jan 2018Dude, you've got to let that m4 aqua incident go, live your life again bro. so what is the conclusion?
sony mobile die?
Cirov12, 18 Jan 2018Sony have VR in ps4, VR in mobile is a jokeOnly way to watch movies on the go.
Vr for games is ajoke anywhere, too high latency, too weak hardware, too dotty screen.
