Vineet Reddy, 06 Mar 2020Well if they come to senses and work on their marketing which is presently non-existent. It ca... moreThere is no reason for marketing budget cuts anymore as they are part of Electronics division now.
So I believe marketing will be sufficient from now on.
Increase in marketing was obvious with Xperia 1 already... mostly through ytube professional photographer channels, and it provided increase in sales this last trimester.
I believe they ll spend even more on marketing this year...
But will again avoid those popular screen and photo marketing sites (like displaymate and dxo) like cancer. They are just not into payed deceit and hype type of marketing.
Anonymous, 06 Mar 2020There's no sonymobile anymore. but i agree.. sony will stop making phones soon.Well if they come to senses and work on their marketing which is presently non-existent. It can redeem itself and will not have to leave. I don't get what is the problem with their marketing department. It is not like they are completely broke and are not capable of one or two ads per region in a year. Not even per product. Just Produce one ad for entire lineup and it will just be fine.
OH NO, 05 Mar 2020Sony mobile will be END, soonThere's no sonymobile anymore.
but i agree.. sony will stop making phones soon.
Well, Sony is back! Welcome!
Although the price is really high... I think it would be much better at €800 or less...
OH NO, 05 Mar 2020Sony mobile will be END, soonThere is no Sony Mobile anymore.

For those of you complaining about this aspect ratio and phone getting tall.
If you are asking for anything with 16:9 aspect ratio it shouldn't be more than 6 inch. Otherwise it will become wide and not easy to grasp.
This screen (21:9 6.5") is just as wide as a 5.2" 16:9 screen. This makes it easy to grasp with one hand but also a little taller and useful.
I have an HTC 10 and when I imagine that this phone is just 2 cm taller than my phone and almost all of it is screen, I see everything I ever wanted. Something that on-screen keyboard doesn't kill all the space of screen.
Not wide but taller.
In Romania, it will be 1050 euros ..
Sony mobile will be END, soon
Anonymous, 05 Mar 2020and sony will miss its target.
as usualWell, explain this then, give your arguments, but you need to log in first to talk me again : https://www.gsmarena.com/sony_sells_13_million_smartphones_during_the_holiday_period-news-41361.php
1.3 millions may be small for your own vision, but that sales double from last quarter (600K), which exceed Sony's expectation, and it did passed Sony's 2019 Mobile accumulative target sales from the beginning. So, your argument are baseless for this one... Lol
TheGoldenMellifluous, 05 Mar 2020Glass half-empty much? There's a target for this phone, even if it's not you. You do really lo... more"The lowest common denominator" is a term that describes these people.
Btw. rumor has it, from one reputed leakster, that the device will be available in china and taiwan by the end of march 2020.

Learn how battery degradation due to fas... moreI don't know about Apple very much, but for Sony, they have a solid reason why they didn't bring fast charging in area of 40W+. Fast Charging above 40W may be rapid and convience. But remember, the more you use it, the breakdown of a battery will be faster as well, as battery has an economical age of usage and the electric charge going on AC is faster than usual, as some scientific research have said (you can find it for yourself in the internet. There are enormous lists of them). They rather bring features where you able to conserve your phone's battery as long as possible to prevent short living of a battery, so you can use longer than 2-3 years. Widely-known for current state that's a very-rare commodity of user-friendly removable battery in 2020 phones and battery has been planted into the phone itself, at least since 2015+.... Do you know their widely-admired Battery Care and Qnovo Adaptive Charging features? Those are the features where Sony executed the mission of conserving battery life on a phone to maximum potential and period, and it has been proven that almost all the time, it conserved the battery economical life much better (at least 2016 and early 2017 Xperia X Series).
Besides, you should be at least grateful Sony upgraded their fast charging solution power (brick) from 18W to 21W in Xperia 1 II... Sure, possibly in the future, Sony will beefed up it again to around 25W-30W+ area, but be grateful now. Their wireless also beefed up from 9W to 15W... And best yet, even their low-end tier phone have 18W Fast Charging with USB PD, starting with L3 and now L4... Even some companies still neglecting Fast Charging for their low-end, yet Sony already provided one since last year, even they don't include the proper charger retail in the box...

Fans complaining about battery degradation until Sony and Apple gives 50w charging on their phones.
You'll notice a change in their opinion on fast charging overnight.
Sony hasnt done anything like this before.. they have fine tuned the Xperia 1. this could be a turning point
