  • Maybe people remember sony ruining their phones with bad updates and battery problems then denying all responsibility.. Just Google z1 battery problem and see the never ending Web pages and forums everyone but Sony trying to fix it. 😎

  • 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.

  • Had terrible customer service in the past with Sony, the battery went on my Z3 they told me it was not covered after 6 months, the UI is dated, the reliability was dire, they do not market them either and demand money that the consumer does not think is worth when compared to an iphone or Samsung, trust me I was a die hard sony fan, K700, k800 K850 c902, c905, sony satio, Z2C Z3C Z3+ sony m2 and then gave up with the brand,

  • I only buy Sony phones but each one lasts me at least 4 years so it's not a phone that needs replacing every year or 18 months

  • I know better, why Sony can't sell more.... First of all Sony motto is give all things you want minus something you need...... Sony doesn't mix want and need in budget and simple series. That's it.

  • I think u r ignoring the biggest reason behind sony's failure and the reason is they r manufacturing the same designs from the past 7 years....from the very first experia z1 to the most recent mobile the looks and the feel r same...same design..same themes..same wallpapers and nothing much has been changed....everything was going fine till they were in a collaboration with erricson...they were very innovative each device was different from other devices and those were superb too like w550i...sony erricson p1 and the whole walkman series were awesome but now they r making new phones but unfirtunately they always gives a glimpse of Sony's 2013 models....and I won't like to spent my precious money on these idiotic phones

  • Sony chose the fight with customers. Customers wanted to bezelles screen and Sony insist bezel for so many phones. Now customers are angry about this stubbornness. Sony needs new story and they needs to listen public more often.

  • Years ago I decided on buying xperia and the day before I got to know that its battery was pathetic--like a laptop, it gave like 4-5 hrs. I then confirmed it with an Xperia user. What a dodge! Never looked at it again.

  • They are soooo awesome i miss the vaio those were lovely machines...i wish sony would give apple a run for their money i know they can do it. I have a twelve pro max but i must say i do miss my walkman phones. They had a touch screen one that i drooled over. The cybershot c seven oh two was the last one i owned which was way ahead if its time in my opinion. It was water resistant and had photo editing software built in with a walkman suite for loading your music with album art😻and something i miss, being able to use music from your own library for a ringtone...no software needed😻😻i wish i could get a sony phone😢they had one experia that had goldfish swimming on the lock screen displaying notifications by the color of the fish...missed calls, voice mails stuff like that. That was sooo baddass🦾 i think it was the first generation models. No one was doing it like that back then🦾🦾they even had a device that was kinda like an itouch/ipod that was ahead of its time to me too👍🏼 sony needs to take another bite out of apple🦾🦾🦾i know they got it...they should hire me lol😄i need a job😅😅

  • I've worked for Sony for 5 years as a Customer Services Officer and I've seen the transformation from Z3 to ZX Premium. Honestly, the hardware is so much better than iPhone, however, Sony seems don't pay much attention to the marketing of sale to it. Salesmen: 120HZ, IP65/68, fancy camera, nice speakers, 5G? Of course! Customers: Which brand? Salesmen : Sony! Customers: Nah!

  • Hands down the Experia 1 II will be my next phone. I went from HTC M8/9 to pixel 2/4. I love the lean android but just a well made phone. Reminds me a lot of the advances from the M8. Totally agree though, sony needs to get their phones into Verizon and ATT stores to get it in front of more people

  • Everyone knows what determines smartphone sales and it's whatever brand seems hip and in style to the young people. Especially girls... my 3 younger sisters all have iPhones and it's more about fitting in with everyone else than how good the phone is. Most people flock to whatever everyone else does but not me... I have a moto phone😂

  • I'm still using SONY Xperia T2 Ultra (secondary device)....Its now 6 years and its still perfectly working. Once I had dropped it in pond and the speaker is now cracking. Other than that, I bet, its OS experience is tremendous. Its display is Magical and in Indian currency, it costed me Rs-15,000. Its camera has features that today Flagships are using.

  • Every Sony item I've ever owned broke the day after warranty ended. I had some Bose speakers just die on me, they were 16 years old and have been put into movies boxes about a dozen times, that is a quality product. But with Sony I've had one of their early palm devices, just stopped working (no damage at all to device), a Sony car stereo system, just stop working, a Sony digital camera, lens zooms gears seized up. A bunch of Sony home audio equipment just die on me. I will never give Sony another dollar of my money. They rank just above comcast in quality.

I'e ordered a OnePlus 7T discounted to 350 Euro which is insane in my country since the 6T has not dropped its price. I will be moving away from Sony.

Buying it online would cost an arm and a leg if you are going for something like amazon due to shipping or you can buy from shady website with no guarantee that you are not getting scammed. This is just some perspective for people in the US for how the situation is for some parts of the world
