  • Why? Smaller battery than competitors, less cases on market than main competitors, weak service in Europe, Sony software is not that good as competitors🤷🏼‍♂️

  • Damn, it's not sold in Canada. Sony is missing out bigtime. Unless they just don't mind not having market share and would rather collect royalties bcuz their camera lenses are in most major smartphones anyway.

  • Through all these years Sony was leading in a heap of tech stuff and cosmetic. The problem is people are sheep and have to have what the other sheep 🐑 have or your not cool. Conform or be cast out. I've been doing the opposite. I was using Huawei a long time ago and never had problems. Now I have a Moto and it kicks ass.

  • Why? Because once a phone manufacturer reaches trusted by the market status phones are a numbers game, Sony and Samsung both good big tech companies so it's a no brainer that the market will go with the bigger better numbers.

  • Part of the problem is that SP's are trying to gauge Sony and other brands while favoring Apple. That may be the main reason Apple keeps selling more phones. They are in cahoots with the SPs that sell the most phones.

  • Sony doesn't have a good ecosystem. They have the products but they're not "better suited" to their own branded products in the same way Samsung products work well wiv everything but work best with other Samsung products, same as apple products.

  • I had my Sony ericson flagship and been running for 6years before starting to bog down but still functional , no problem and has given me everything my satisfaction has wished for, Moneys worth(Except the night mode, got so frustrated most of the time due to manual mode which most dont have the skills to do it) . 👉 Oh Hire this Guy for your reviews and advertisements! He explained it well. 👌 👌

  • I was a die hard Sony Ericsson fan, loved them. Bought one of the first Xperia's, the side slide one and it was AWFUL. Crashed constantly and had so little support, which is pretty much the reason I moved away. That being said, I loved Sony for their uniqueness. My phone was yellow for god sake. Bring that back and I'm there.

  • Sony for life. Set new standards. Never follow the crowd. (never Apple, Samsung is okay but overrated. In general most consumers are simple and don't know what they want or need) Best and longest lasting smartphones. Best battery life. Still have 1) z3v, using as tablet. 2) xz2 compact = still no problems, long battery life, no Overheating. Best truly compact smartphone made. Hi-res audio. 3) just bought xperia 5 ii, alpha camera, great audio and screen, headphones jack. Only complaint is no brand name cases or screen protectors

  • Used to own a Sony phone, it crashed constantly for no apparent reason. Apparently it was a software bug, so I reverted to factory settings and all that and everything was cool, right? WRONG. A few months later the screen spasmed out and the phone just sorta died. I got it to a shop for someone to check it out, and they had no idea what it was. They say they cant fix it. Nice, nice.

  • Idk about you but sometimes I love when companies low key drop one of the best flagship phones and give no effort to marketing it, the less of the demand the more deals you'll find lol I got it brand new for 800 on ebay

  • I have the xz3 sony from 2018 with hdr, ads a good touch to the picture so im keeping it for another 2 years, instead i got my girlfriend the 10.II and honestly its a disopointment even for the price range so i got her the 5II instead and its brilliant. The good phones with sony i think are great but for cheap phones i think other manufacturers do a better job. At least thats my impression.

Sony manufacturers the best electronics in the world and will continue to do so. BTW this post was done with a Sony XZ1

  • The Mk II phones by Sony are what the Red Hydrogen One shouldve been. Ive been rocking a few sony phones in my life and I always loved AND hated them at the same time. It's just bitter that 200$ phones take "better" photos easier than a 1000$ phone with the same camera lenses. There's just no need for people to buy a sony. If you want a good screen it's apple, samsung or huawei (if you can live without google services). If you want good photos and/or a well built phone, well just pick any phone 250$+. If you want the best value for money and dont care for bloatware and ads, get any Xiaomi or realme (not in the US(?)). If you like it more niche and want an overall good phone - go pick a oneplus or pixel. Sony does only just now stand out with camera quality, but misses out on practical everyday usability. I personally tend to pixel phones till the pixel 3, mainly because of the size (I sadly don't got as huge hands as Marques). It takes me 5 seconds to activate the camera and take an outstanding photo of any situation - no matter the time of day. And that camera tech is 3 years old! If sony wants to appeal to more people they need to hit another massive niche. Why not give another gaming-phone a try? We all know the Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY wasn't a great phone, yet it was appealing being able to play games which were not yet playable on the go. Sony delivering something like stadia, bringing all ps4/5 games to a handheld, maybe cross-saved to your ps5, delivering a dual-shock like clip-on Gamepad - what a nice thing it would be! Or another high-def audio walkman-phone with exclusive "free" access to sony-owned music and videos in high def? Sony owns just so many music and movies - they could easily justiy releasing an audio-based niche phone. Anything but another "camera-king" that all other competitors do excel on.

  • Sony makes very durable products. but aside from what you said regarding the promoting the phone in an effective manner, I think they are a bit old fashion, I mean by looking at the front side the bezels are like galaxy S8, when people look at it they think it is an old-generation phone. Chinese brands are creating really good looking phones these days and it makes you choose those good looking ones over this out-dated looking phone even though you know that sony's products are way better in terms of quality and durability. today companies are working hard to release foldable and rollable phones so Sony must hire better designers, and they better be quick.
