Ali Bashir, 18 Mar 2018Poor marketing from Sony, heavy marketing and advertising from Samsung and Huawei. Wrong. Sony advertises all over the world in different manners. At major football games with large LCD displays and even on some players clothes. Sony advertises on TV in western countries.
Sony was number 3 and now is 12th in mobile phone sales internationally. Numerous problems with their past phones, lack of support and NO International warranty has all destroyed Sonys reputation.
3D Memorys, 17 Mar 2018IPhone X and Samsung S9 also slippery why I don't see you there to trolling? Could you please ... moresorry iphone and samsung have flat backs. so it won't dance while receiving call.
both are carefully enginered to give the best experience to users.
now compare it to xperia.
slippery and glossy like a wet soap, and with raised back. it would dance on the table while receiving call, and finally fall down to the floor, and then it cracks. LOL.
see? sony's enginers cannot even think about this design mistake.
they just bl!ndly copy htc's design.
LOL LOL LOL

Their product is very attractive, especially for woman, they are smart, women doesnt need super fluid ui, only need stylish phone, with good selfie camera. They both now on top 5 smartphone vendors.
Sony isnt that smart, they dont have something attractive, the fluid ui will only attract young male game lover, a very small market. Girl, man, women, old man, business man, smart boy all prefer phones with exciting features..

I have no words, sony xperia xz2 is the best from: camera, performance, network, memory, sound, connectivity, features, and last but not least the battery 3180 mah battery which will last an entire day.
3D Memorys, 17 Mar 2018Their marketing strategy suck. Not a good reason at all
I'd rather buy another Xperia Z2 (2014) than buying this redesigned so called "Ambient Flow". I think omnibalance and loop design like XZ premium is a good example they should make phones look unique not generic like the rest of competitors.
Anonymous, 17 Mar 2018yes because this phone is very slippery like a soapIPhone X and Samsung S9 also slippery why I don't see you there to trolling? Could you please give me your reason why are you here?!
Other example: When iPhone with the biggest bezel last year people don't see(blind) but they come trolling Xperia XZ1 with dual front firing stereo speakers.
Anonymous, 17 Mar 2018In my opinion Sony really isn't that good at making phones.The company which explode the flagship should the one you say. Sony adopt the Qnovo earlier than Samsung Note 7, so you can find whose is the best on designs from inside to outside.

-. -, 17 Mar 2018my guess is how smartphone market differ than other market
in case of tv, you can go to any l... moreyou are right.
in my country, local retailers often suggest their customers to buy a particular brand (a china brand with two 'o' letters).
non tech people (oftenly women) would easily agree on their suggestions.
and i heard this company also gives bigger bonuses to retailers for each 'o' brand that they can sell.
Anyone knows if the Sony Xperia XZ2 comes with HDMI OUT (with adapter) like the S8/S9 or the iPhones?
1) that ugly design really help in grip and it is water proof with both IP68 and IP65
2) 6 MB ram is much more stable for a flagship then 3/4 MB
3) best sound system ever on a phone
4) LCD screen has fast respond and high quality great for gaming
5) amazing camera with the best gear from the IR sensor to the PDAF hybrid LAF burst/ constant AF and the best slow mo video
6) color spectrum sensor (I don't know what is the use of it but well be good for adjusting screen color to the correct RGB balance)
7) the new OS skin is lighter than before which means less lag or bugs
1) the "PREMIUM" dual glass sandwich is glossy slpy heavy and fargli (easy to drop and break)
2) a lots of people hate hybrid solt for the lack of options but there is no space for 3 solts so it is justified
3) LCD screen is old school and battery consuming and extremely cheap for an expensive flagship
4) the ADVANCE AF seems slower then Dual pixel AF because hybrid AF has PD is using only 5% of the screen pixels but DP use 100% of them the only thing the hybrid focus is good at is close range laser focus and the lack hardware OIS replaced with the EIS results more noise in videos but still better images and f 2.0 is just to narrow it was used sense the Z1 maybe good for highlight not slo mo,s and no 2160 fps60 (which I dont care about) and you cant manualy change the slow mo speed (means no 480fps 240fps on 1080p) right?
and dont forget the 5MP f2.2 no AF camera even the older then selfe is better
5) color spectrum is never seen before like the AI so it doesn't have that much of uses

in case of tv, you can go to any local store and have the audio&visual feel first hand, so marketing or not, people still can decide on what they want by actually looking at it
in case of smartphone, there are ton of it, and people can't possibly judge a smartphone with a quick trip on a local store, it need time. and there's where reviewer come to place, it's how a brand is valued, how they market their product to various medium, and it spearheaded by the fact that general consumer will swallow whole on ad and PR talk
in case of my country, how the local retailer always reluctantly force a certain brand on a customer
so, it's mean the difference how the market differ, brand acknowledgment alone won't help
Tareq Hasan, 17 Mar 2018As a Japanese company Sony should be at the top of Smartphone market. I donÂ’t know why their ... morejap's young generations lack interest in smartphone development.
that is not just sony's problem. it is problem of the entire country.
almost all jap's phone company are dying (or bought by bigger company from other country).
sony mobile is the only one that still exist producing phone for international users
As a Japanese company Sony should be at the top of Smartphone market. I donÂ’t know why their products are not appealing the world. We all grew up seeing Sony brand as the top electronics brand of the world. Even the TVs we owned back in 25 years are still running. Why their smartphones are not dominating thatÂ’s a question to be asked to Sony bosses. I hope one day their market will catch up the Samsung and Apple. Because we still believe Sony means quality not gimmicks.
