3rd is very attainable for Sony.
Nokia is gone, Blackberry is gone, HTC will probably be gone soon too.
Who else is there? If Sony continues being serious and innovating like they do with Z and Z1 and especially with the rumoured Z1 mini with Z1's specs only a smaller size, they'll gain traction.
They should also create a Nokia 808/Lumia 1020 competitor phone, Z1 was supposed to it, but it's not, it was rumoured to have a 1/1.5" sensor, but it has a much smaller sensor.
AnonD-189822, 03 Oct 2013And how will Sony beat WP8?If they really wanted to they could perform just as crappy as the WP8 does, but as you can see they are actually aiming to succeed (albeit not being too ambitious).
lopes, 03 Oct 2013well i have a fujitsu Docomo f-o2e and im reaaly happy with the specs 1.7 quadcore tegra 3 ,... moreI think I will pass! Oh, by the way, Sony is a Japanese company only top end......!
Aiming for 3rd is not ambitious to me, what if they achieve their aim and become 3rd "we have achieved our aim for 3rd we will never try to become 1st because our aim is 3rd".
AnonD-977, 03 Oct 2013Sony should follow Samsung's lead, spend billions of dollars on paying people to lie on blogs.dont waste ur time on those Incredibly expensive smartphones while u can go buy tablets like PloyerMomo19HD which is x20 stronger and better and alot cheaper
Android Man, 03 Oct 2013well I wish them every success. I have a Xperia Z and sony smartwatch. and are really happy wi... moreI put a cheap eBay memory card in my S4 and it got too hot to touch in that area of the phone, had to spend $50 on a decent card which stopped it happening.

It's very easy Sony, just change your update policy (it doesn't have to feature all your proprietary customizations, just have an updated AOSP image available for each model) and you will even go farther than just 3rd. Everything else is already there, you are just missing out the point which separates "true premium" from "wannabe premium"... proper OS updates like the iPhone.
Samsung has thrown it all out with the newest regional locking (hope they retract it, but the beans are already spilled).
LG is learning from past mistakes, although the majority of updates are still from 3rd parties such as Cyanogenmod.
HTC is somewhat of a mixed bag, a bitter-sweat relation.
Honestly you (Sony) have it all that it takes to go for number 1, although it may take some time due to the momentum Samsung acquired in the past years (which will inevitably slow down with their cocky attitude).
the first and foremost thing is after sales service not just better and fast service center but also next android update at least for the life cycle of the device.. which none of the oem follows except google flagship devices ... the day oem starts to follow up this they will get on the top notch position
It's very hard with dollars that big companies like apple or... are spending for marketing,even with innovative devices like xperia Z1.
I do not own a Sony phone but maybe my next phone will be.As a tech lover I wish best for Sony as one of most honest companies out there.
well i have a fujitsu Docomo f-o2e and im reaaly happy
with the specs 1.7 quadcore tegra 3 ,finger print sensor, 16mpx camera,32gb,water proof and dust proof etc etc
so if you want a good phone just go japan

Speaker is average.
Camera is above average.
im xperia tx owner for 10 months now and i dont have any problem with the phone, im very satisfied. keep up the good work sony!
Few aspects still need to be improved like display, battery performance and software update. I'm glad to see more and more ppl using Sony phone instead of Samsung or Apple in my region. Hope Sony can be the first OEM that ends the Samsung + Apple domination era.
Good luck Sony!! I'm waiting your PS4 as well!!
