There are reports that Sony may close its smartphone business. Speculations from a few months ago suggest that Sony’s smartphones are no longer for the global market. According to Sony’s latest sales figures, the company seems to be selling little or nothing. For several consecutive quarters, Sony barely sells a million devices. While the Japanese manufacturer was able to sell about one million Xperia smartphones every quarter in the previous year (2018), it sold just 900,000 phones in the first quarter of 2019 and only 600,000 in the second quarter. This sparked rumors that the company’s smartphone business is going down
Sony’s Smartphone sales:
- 2017: 13.5 million
- 2018: 6.5 million
- 2019: 2.5 million (forecast)
Hands are tied… Can’t buy one of no carrier is selling.
Why downgrade on the soc? The earlier models had the same soc as the flagship.
5&5 6&6 inch is good Sony and 4 6 8 GB RAM WITH 64 128 252 GB VERY GOOD
Tablet 7 inch and 10 inch is very good with RAM 4&6&8 GB storage 64&128GB very very good
Why is their smartphone sales going down, they are nice phones. I Have a Sony my has 2 sonys, they are much better than my LG
I am loving my Xperia 1 and My Sony earbuds. For me they are the best in sight and sound . They were made for each other and you can tell . The long narrow screen isn’t just amazing with film but andriod browser viewing in both vertical and horizontal positions are a fit that seems lacking in other products .
I thought it might be a bit bulky but I am comfortable with it ,however if it would have been a bit cumbersome . Based on it’s performance the 5 or a compact version wouldn’t have been out of the question at all .
Sony is the best phone ever l am still waiting for xperia note flex or zoom
Also try to do promotions en the sales will hike it seems the company relaxed
