  • Sony should learn from Samsung how to make phones that die with very next software update.

  • How is Sony this days with the Android updates? They used to be really slow and that's why I stopped using them.

  • I am in the UK, and for the last 2 years, I noticed a lot of shops and mobile networks has stop selling SONY/HTC/MOTOROLA for some reason , instead the market here has been flooded with Chinese phones like Xiaomi/OPPO/ Huawei/ OnePlus....I am not sure why that is

  • Damn, no wonder... I always thought Sony and other companies were ahead of Mac by far but, yeah, you can't beat their marketing. It's crazy that that's all it takes and you're right, like, Sony picks horrible names. I think Mac numbers their devices for two reasons, one, to keep the hype of having the latest device thus guaranteeing sales and two, to not have to go through the cons of having different names and "types" of devices. Damnnn....!

  • I was always very underwhelmed with their design compared to other manufacturers. My parents used to exclusively have Sony phones and they always looked and felt nowhere near as premium as Samsung or Apple.

  • I bought an Xperia and it was a piece of crap. The Camera was the selling feature for me with over 40mpx that looked worse than my Google Pixel 3a with only 12mpx. They are getting away with selling hardware that is useless because the software can't handle it. So you are not getting what they advertise. I tried to contact customer service when my phone kept freezing and crashing but could not find a person to talk to. I will NEVER buy another Xperia again!

  • Sony has never been good at advertising (remember the creepy Playstation ads??) also, who here has genuinely heard of the "PS-TV"? Far as I'm aware it was never advertised even though it is a proper comsole, it uses PS4 controllers and plays Vita games on the TV, they were like $80 (dirt cheap). Sony makes good quality products, there's no doubt about that, but good quality isn't enough now, people are spoilt and go for shiney things... Even when the company shits on them daily (apple was fined over $100 million a few weeks ago about them slowing down phones with their battery excuse - to bad with such a tiny fine, it proves that crime pays & idiots keep buying their products!) Samsung, Google are not much better, so in short - have a look at a different brand, see what rjeh have to offer, be an educated consumer because even if you don't care, you're fucking it up for the rest of us! Current phone: Sony XZ Premium 4K (no plns to upgrade, this phone is amazing, a hidden gem in the mobile world).

  • Biggest set back to Sony smartphones is ZERO CARRIER SUPPORT. The number of customers who buy flagship phones outright is very small. Look at Apple, every carrier offers them, AND you can get iPhone forever where you pay $50 a month and get the newest iphone every. single. year by simply trading in your 1yo phone.

  • Their goal isn't to mass produce and sell their smart phones. They are proof of concept to license and sell sensors to companies geared for mass production. If you look at all of the things on every phone today that was first in a Sony phone, it would make more sense.

  • sony should have experience English native speaker to launch their products, what I've seen so far they don't have launcher ability to attract the audience specially buyers wants to know what makes Sony differently in the market, take Apple as an example they are best when launch their product because they know well buyer looking for and what they can focus on.

  • I've been using Sony since K770i(2009), Sony Xperia Active(2012) and then Z1 compact (2015) for its camera and small size. It's mp3 from various generations. It's 4K TV, portable Bluetooth speaker. For me Sony is the leader of Android at that time. It is one of the first to make a waterproof smartphone. The camera is good enough for me to buy it. But sometimes it is not quite friendly in term of camera GUI. I love the complexity of its pro mode. But if its not easy to use the basic auto mode, i don't think people want to buy it. Now i'm using iPhone SE(2016) because it is small and user friendly camera user interface with good quality picture. If there's a new Sony with small size and high spec with friendly camera user interface, i will not hesitate to buy it. I like your point on their hype just die after few months.

  • Well i just dumped my old sony phone. It was the actual worst phone i've ever had. The most basic things like....bluetooth syncing to my car, having a keyboard that works well, running basic apps consistently, all of this was infuriatingly half baked or inconsistent or downright broken. It also gets the distinction of being the first phone to ever have the display break/malfunction after a drop for me....it dropped off my dresser onto carpet.
