I still have my Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc it is a very good phone and no reason to upgrade.

Sony should stop releasing half-assed updates instead. I'm tired of updating to a newer android version only to see the device getting crippled by it because some retard got the settings wrong.

Like the botched mic volume on JB->KK update, or the BT module suddenly being unable to stream audio without stuttering every few minutes on KK stock rom - while it's perfectly fine on a custom KK one or the older JB stock rom.

I still have my Xperia s and planning to upgrade to z4 next year only to find out that it will not be equipped with snapdragon 810.

....And presumably to stop pssing customers off. Seriously, 6 month cycles, I'd hate to have bought a Z3 and then realise it's getting superceded in less than 6 months.

In most markets the most important factor is the price tag.. they produced really good smartphones, especially in 2014, it's all about the price and distribution.

Bring back the classy stylish sony ericsson line up. Sonys' mobile designs are not attractive.

Here's hoping Sony doesn't stop making high-end HDTVs. their color reproduction and build quality is second to none.

Here's hoping they can somehow rise from the dead (compared to yesteryear that is). Really don't wanna see a day where they're sold to some unknown schmuck of a company. They really need to live on.

Just keep making camera parts for Apple. That is most profitable.

And do not use Android, because its slow and laggy. Try some WP8.

  • AnonD-217577

agree with sony... think carefully n make a good concept n design
remember my Xperia RAY...SONY said it took 1,5 years from concept until it was sold in the market.
nice body, good material, briliant camera...the legend in his age...call Shigeyaki again

It will be good when sony releases Smarphone around Indian Rs. 7k to 10k margin Mobiles with good configuration. Because i Have been using Sony Xperia Tipo Dual from 2012. Till now i Haven't faced any problem. So i am eagerly waiting for Sony SmartPhones for a Mid Range.
