  • Sony's camera technology is actually Konica-Minolta which it bought long ago.

  • Marques my friend tell me if i should buy the xperia 1 ii or the xperia 10 ii. The price is a big difference but the phones itself doesnt seem that much of a difference. Is it worth it to buy the xperia1ii in comparisson to the cheaper xperia 10 ii?

  • 这玩意儿7500元,同价格我都能买到2手的5d3,手机除了拍照之外i的基础功能早就饱和了,估计你2年前的手机也足以满足日常使用,买这个可以说在交智商税

  • One big thing I believe turns people away is the price point of the phone while not being compatible with Verizon, who the people buying $1000 phones in America typically have. I had to switch carriers when I went from z3v to xz premium.

  • 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.

  • I just googled the best smartphone and for me Sony was a must buy: -4K oled display -no cheap material -you get much more quality and specs for the money and not just for social attention. -Playstation share -no notch -etc. The only thing i regret is to be impatient and i bought X1 while X1II is kicking.

  • 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.

  • because of populism. people choose noisy products over quality ones. same pattern seen in any high school or underdeveloped society with juvenile tendencies. same reason why we dont build architectural monuments but one penis looking buildings after another. or why no quality music is produced but instead our ears raped by kanye west and derivatives. populism.

  • It has too much features for too many things. These features come with a price. In the end, no one can afford it. So the guys who designed it in the lab, thinking of a dream product just priced the item out of the market. They ended up designing a toy for the tech kids without seriously studying if there is a market for such a thing. It’s too much for a phone, but not good enough to be a TV, nor good enough to be a high end camera nor a high end video camera. What a waste of resources and time!

  • Sony makes fantastic phones. I am replying to this video from my XPERIA XZ2 Premium. The problems with Sony phones are poor marketing, non competitive pricing and appalling distribution network.

  • I purchased a Sony Xperia in 2014. It looked cool, seemed to have great features ... but it had major issues. I would get a text or email notification - but it would take a solid 4 or 5 minutes to get the phone to "wake up" ... and even then it was slow. It was by far THE WORST SMARTPHONE I'VE EVER HAD. Very much NOT RECOMMENDED. The real culprit was a very underpowered hardware driving the 'features'. The battery also went to sh!t in a year, and I was stuck paying for this POS long after I wanted to smash it. It was terrible. It was awful. So, add that into the reasons why their mobile sales dropped off ... their products were terrible. Also: I take care of my stuff. For comparison: I picked up an Iphone 6s when i ditched the SONY, and I haven't had ANY issues with it since, and it even looks brand new still. SONY f*cked up, and that's why I'll never go back.

  • Just got my xperia 5 ii traded in my s20. Soo its very smooth lagg free, its got a headphone jack, its got a notification light, its got better battery health app bit like apple. Its easy to hold, camera is better than s20 more natural. Its got a camera button, the inly negative is what Samsung done with past phones and that is a Google assistant dedicated button which has no use and I forgot to mention they now do 3 years software updates 😀 on the 2020 flagships ie 1 ii and 5 ii

  • I used to be a huge Sony Ericsson enthusiastic fan, and kept following Sony after they split up with Ericsson. But man they've disappointed me again and again ever since. And when we bought 5 Sony Xperia phones at work that suffered from the "Ghost-Touch" problem, we had to struggle for months with the reseller who kept claiming there was no problem. Finally I reached out to Sony for help, but they just said "Reseller says there's no problem". That made me turn my back to Sony completely. Sad poor extremely disappointing customer service.

Nobody uses walkmans anymore. sony really only has playstation 🤷‍♂️ sony ain't apple or samsung. People don't like them, they like playstation

  • I tried the Xperia Z1 when it first came out because the Specs on paper were phenomenal!! I was blown away by a 21mp camera (back then) with sony quality light sensors! All the specs looked like they would blow Samsung out of the water... But then I found out why certain brands tend to have influence. Software support. Like, the Z1 couldn't even use the full capabilities of it's own camera (could only use 8mp with stabilization and 12 without) But the REAL issue for me was the software updates. Sony was putting out updates for their unlocked phones and other carriers, but Sony and Verizon DID NOT play nice with each other. I think I only got 1 or 2 updates in the couple years I had it....maybe. So I switched back to Samsung and never went back. It IS tempting though! If I knew Sony and Verizon played nicely with each other nowadays I would genuinely consider leaving my galaxy for a whole new Xperience!

  • Bought XZ1 as soon as it came out for around 750-800€, for one year I couldnt be more happy, but as soon as the phone hit that one year mark, no Updates anymore, camera stopped working, even Whatsapp and alarm app stopped working properly.... Made the mistake once, never again.

  • Honestly, Sony for me has by far the best Smartphones, I've tried many brands but none were as good as Sony in terms of longevity. I've had mine for more than 6 years. It just started to malfunction recently so I'm looking for a new phone. The previous Sony I had before the current one, lasted 4 years.

  • You see there it peaks at 2013-2014? That's when Sony Z phone was famous for its camera and popular. However, the screen was notoriously fragile and this hurts a lot of Sony customers including me. I got myself Asus after months dealing with a phone which screen can crack for no reason and my asus still survive until now

  • I once had a Sony Xperia XZ and it's quite cool. People may need a while to get used to using it but that's true for any phones that you're unfamiliar with. Their marketing isn't great, and their customer service could have improved so as to reach out to more customers. Thanks for doing this review. It's awesome and I hope more people can learn about other great phones out there. I definitely don't like monopoly.
