You sammy and LG fanboys are really pathetic. Wtf are you earning if Sony's sinking (because i read lots of pots wishing for Sony to sink). Are you guys even sane? If you want a Samsung phone it's your decision I'm not going to change your mind, but you want Sony to stop making phones therefore I can't buy what I want any longer. This really shows once again how damaged this world and planed is. I'm ashamed to be human.

If you don't give good specs in your midrange and goof up with their pricing, then this is exactly gonna happen. Xperia M2 and T3 are good examples of this goof up. Time to WAKE UP SONY.
Very expensive mid range devices. Reason behind the loss. They have to work hard and provide better specs with good price. They should know people don't care about brand anymore they just want good value for money.
If sony start making their phone with the headphone jack on the bottom like lg and htc one m8 that it would be a good phone to buy. Because is the new trend now headphone on the bottom of the phone next to the charging jack..
Sony foresees $1.2 billion loss from its smartphone business. Duh, what would you expect----to boost their sales? I've been at YouTube,Facebook,GSMarena,PocketNow,AndroidAuthority etc., and every Sony post there are lots of fake tech nerds who is claiming Sony is not good. What the hell this people doing? They are keep on bashing the company that does good and gives millions of quality products. Its just that those people who put Sony down are those infected by the paid columnist who do nothing but criticizing as is they know everything but nothing. They are the one who is happy when the company will on debt and cut down employees. I hope I could read in the near future a column with a writer that is genuine,truth and balance in reporting. Seriously make some changes today!

CAli, 18 Sep 2014Yeah that's why your on SONY post! Low grade and keep dreaming he-hesony is the worst company! we are here to say never buy sony again! and we are happy sony is soon to disappears people realizes sony phones are bad.
It was expected . Nothing surprising . Sony came to the party very late . Sony was focused on making some amazing vios but sadly pc technology is a thing of the past. Sony has the ability to create some amazing gadgets but it is not putting its foot were it should be at the right time !
Noahz, 17 Sep 2014For me the reason of loss might be lack of advertisement, here in our country, we havent see... moreI agree with you 100%. Am in Ghana and have not seen any add from Sony but Samsung add everywhere. I own Xperia U currently and am planning to get the Z3 Compact. It is even difficult to get sony phone to buy.Sony should do the following;
1.Open up to other markets ie USA and Africa
3.Do budget phones, price them reasonably and sell them to the developing world.
4.Support mid-range phones
5.If possible go back and manufacture feature phones and sell them cheap to the the developing world.Some of these guys will grow up to be customers of your high end phones.
Nik, 17 Sep 2014 i agree with you sir Sony is the worst company ever. good they are sinking.Worst than Samsung?
