Think about it for a moment, if GSMA, leaksters, or the mobile industry in general doesn't have an idea what or which midrange devices Sony of Japan would launch for 2019, how the honeycomb would Sony Philippines even have the slightest clue what midrange phones are to launch for their local market this 2019? How the froyo and how much more (or less) do you think those salespeople of Sony Philippines have the slightest tip from their superiors?
Dominique, 30 Jan 2019Which smartphone has SD 363? -,-im sorry that was a typo error. it means 636 :)
Fajulia, 28 Jan 2019Nokia is not performing either... Nokia is absolutely not a bang 4 buck device even for their ... moreI agree about Nokia's price point. Compared to Sony though, Nokia is still cheaper (specs wise).
Imperator Neubaticus, 28 Jan 2019Also lol at Sony loyalists. Still can't accept that after lg and htc, Sony is next in line to ... moreI don't know if you have been in Sony stores in Philippine malls, but their mobile department only occupies a small portion of their stores. If Sony mobile pulls out from the philippines, not much would change in their stores. There are still cameras, lenses, speakers on display.
Anonymous, 28 Jan 2019oddly enough, there are rumors that sony is pulling out as well according to the sales people ... moreI also noticed in more one of their stores their midrange versions available are from 2018 only and when I asked if the 2019 midrangers will come the sales people couldn't tell.
most of the filipinos are now using those cheap china brands. these cheap brands have deceiving specs. they got SD 636 for 12k only while the other brand got SD 363 for 25k! I think i knew the magic here. cheap brands used the SD type with lower specs and no testing is done anymore. once the software is flashed then it'll go straight to the poor users. lol
It is unofficial guyz, do not be sad! And why is the title do not have question mark after the word Philippines? GSM arena pull yourself together.

dvdivx, 28 Jan 2019Why is there such a big difference between the price of phones in Hong Kong and the Philippines?Check the importation cost and tax. -,-
I'm not even surprised, LG Mobile and Sony Mobile are struggling in the Philippines for years now. If you compare their stores with the other mobile brands in the mall, it has no customers at all. The largest premium brands here are Samsung and Apple with Huawei slowly becoming popular here lately, then there are Oppo and Vivo in the mid-range smartphone and some local brands like Cherry Mobile in the entry level.
MotoFan, 29 Jan 2019I hope Motorola wont leave also. heheKewp in mind if you motorola out of business there is innovation. Technology will stuck if wvwryone only purchase copy paste phone.
Hopefully LG back to when G2 first lunched with new knock code, slim bezel
Carol, 28 Jan 2019Sad that sony HTC and others got really low, and sad to see people being so uncompetitive. I h... moreRight. They should try sony and get to feel how good it is. Its intuitive. The only thing sony should do is keep the pricing on the same level with other brands esp on the midrange category and have more presence on the ads. Sometimes that's where the people got turned off, the pricing.
Eldamri, 28 Jan 2019I can understand why sony is in the comments. I'm a sony fan and still using my z5 compact but... moreSony has to price their phones on the same on the same level esp on the midrange category. Sony user too and i like the fluidity and friendly UI of sony. I hope they can recover on mobile market.
