You see people lining outside apple store just because there is a new iphone coming out. 90% of them are so stupid i can't even bother to comment. They just buy it because its the new iphone, they don't even know what's new and what's not. So when you mentioning sales, mention marketing and brainwashing campaigns as well, that's why samsung and apple sell well.
Ask around, apple knows that their users are brainless so they don't need to evolve that much gen after gen. Samsung believed that they are so awesome they released a phone untested it started exploding.
And yet people still believe in them! it's hilarious..!

If you make it here you can make it anywhere sans Chinese phones which will get hit with massive amount of patent infringement cases.

AnonD-463876, 20 Jan 2017It's a bit of both, trust me my fellow Americans wouldn't b... moreSorry to disappoint you brother but America is not a primary market for Sony Mobile right now. They have, we should say, distanced themselves from America to focus more on Asia and Europe. And yeah i totally agree with you, in America, both Apple & Samsung are durable, trustworthy, accessible, affordable, premium (to some extent in Sammy's case) and definitely known by the masses, no denying in that. If Sony Mobile wants to enter there, believe me they can. They just have a really bad marketing department and budget for it. I have never seen them market their Xperias properly even in the markets they are in right now. Only a single ad for a flagship for a whole season. This is their advertisement thats it.

XZ's profits are yet to be seen this year as XZ has been declared the surprise hit of 2016 (Apteligent's Report) after Note7's demise, Sony had the maximum advantage after iPhone 7.
FYI, just to make you feel better, Sony Mobile is still doing far better than 'known' OEMs like LG & htc.

DenisXD, 23 Jan 2017thank you. im enjoying it pretty much. In saunas people ask... more"See? Real life sucks when it hits the whole benchmarks and numbers doesn't it? Please go outside and check which phones turn heads the most.." But in reality in my work place and friends circle i only found one your so called head turning phone. Total Sony mobile sales around 20 million last year which is not even half of S7/S7E's annual sales and iPhone's quarterly sales figures. That's the reality.

In saunas people ask me what kind of super phone I have that i play with it inside water, I simply answer "well, its Sony" and they stay speechless. I didn't saw anyone caring about iphones and samsungs when they were talking to me, they got jealous asking me where they can get one as well.

See? Real life sucks when it hits the whole benchmarks and numbers doesn't it? Please go outside and check which phones turn heads the most..

Anyway, thanks :) im enjoying it a lot.

DenisXD, 22 Jan 2017ok good. Anyway if Sony is so bad what are you doing here? ... more"On 2nd note, what does Z5's glass has to do with it being updated to android 7?" I never raised Nougat update in my previous posts right? I said one thing and you are talking about other. You are sooo intellectual dude, when screen issues were talked about and you are raising Nougat update. Wow. Enjoy your Sony. Thought you guys will enlighten me about long durablilty and better quality glass used in Sony as per other guys' claim.

Why are you even bother to comment?

Yeah we like bad Sony phones.. accept it and leave us in peace. Every Sony related post has you guys ruining it without you even having a Sony phone.
On 2nd note, what does Z5's glass has to do with it being updated to android 7?

It's an enlightened Sony's fans's claim. I too will say like you that my S6E's screen is perfect so all the links you provided are also lies/fakes. Accept it.

DenisXD, 20 Jan 2017generalising again sweety, and you were the one who started... moreSony and it's fans like you are really living in a bubble getting ready to burst, only saved by small profit it gained from decent sales and some Job cuts all over world. 2016's little success just prolonged that bubble's life for some more days. If Sony really can't release a defining product and can't improve its sales performance then that bubble will burst and it will be a pity a brand like Sony become non-existent after few years. Another Nokia and Blackberry in the making.

DenisXD, 20 Jan 2017generalising again sweety, and you were the one who started... moreSo according to you based on those two real z5 users' praise, all those complaints in Sony's Forum became fake. And all their concerns with their broken glass phones became a lie. Right. And suddenly all Sony's mobile became perfect without any issue.

DenisXD, 20 Jan 2017keep dreaming. This nonsense about Sony exiting smartphones... moreYou mean their penny profits rofl read what RaghavaZ just said, they need to start making huge profits if they want to stay afloat otherwise it's bye bye Sony, I honestly don't think anyone will even notice or care lol

AadiRizvi, 20 Jan 2017No, sales merely indicates affordability of the masses firs... moreApple sold 45 million iPhones globally in Q4, 2016 and they are no means affordable phones. Sony Mobile was in losses until 2016, where XZ saved Sony a little. Sony managed to make around 10 billion dollar in whole year. Which is far less than what Apple made. And Samsung got 21% market share in smartphone category. The point here is Sony needs far better sales in 2017 than XZ managed, to survive. Sony can't simply run into profits by just saying Xperias should be purchased by hardcore Sony fans only....

But sales never mean the product is durable, trustworthy or premium. It rather tells you that its more accessible, affordable and known by the masses.

You and your self cracking friend there don't fail in keeping me amused.

Please continue humiliating yourselves :)
