Anonymous, 08 Oct 2019underspecced at half the price. $500 for a SD630? lolInternational market are always about "specs". That's why Sony xperia 10 is already enough for the global market, lower price, just plastic, even the second camera is only for depth (not that usefull).

Sony xperia 8 is for someone that needs the flagship basics but with less money, the design and IP65/68 are both the basic of flagship. If xperia 10 and xperia 8 both launched in global market, people would eventually tought the xperia 8 is better than xperia 10.

I don't think xperia 8 is better than the competitor, that's why it is exclusive to the Japan market, global market is all about "Specs" like all of the Sony flagship (high specs and unique feature).

Name it hawei apple samsung all of them. U want the fone buy it u dont want it then u jus dont. Stop running ur.mouth.i have never been disappointed by sony. I do everyting sony. Phones, tv, headfones, gaming , and the only issues I have wit them is in their car audio systems. I love sony nun better . I will still buy their hi priced fones because they are jus better

Good luck on selling supper expensive gimmicks with heavily underpowered specs Sony.
HTC were first you can follow.
But i do understand Japanese are clumsy and are willing to pay even 20 times the manufacturing cost.
Genuinely phone by Xiaomi would cost up to 150 bucks.

Do you think Samsung will make the Note until Note 99? Huawei will have Mate 200 in future? iPhone will sell iPhone 543 for 500++ year later?...
...Another example the Maya Calendar last day end on 2012 but now already 2019, that means it is a cycle time. Do you get it? The naming scheme has a cycle time. What are you hating for? The spec is all listed gsmarena YouTube reviews techs newsy all you can read, but why stuck at the naming scheme, don't be so plain.

Another example of Sony just not knowing what we want.
The pricing is horrible for a snapdragon 630.
The sad part is this is one of the few mid range phones with an IP rating and I would have considered it had it been available globally.

Sony Xperia is dead for sure.

Instead of using small ones only to be equal to larger batteries??

openthetech, 09 Oct 2019that is why many top oem stick with 12......apple,sony etcLike top OEM quote on Sony,,, yes

openthetech, 09 Oct 2019that is why many top oem stick with 12......apple,sony etc64mp means a lot, its not just about resolution, its also about getting bigger sensor - that matters.
Reason of them sticking to 12mp is obviously them not trying hard enough, just look at huawei what it can do with its hi res sensor, hi iso, best hdr, sharpness per pixel are just few of examples. Other just stick the same hw and up the price, because some isheep will buy anyway...

The same SoC from Moto X4, a phone launched 2 years ago.

vrvly, 08 Oct 201964mp is already nothing new. Wonder if they even try. that is why many top oem stick with 12......apple,sony etc

vrvly, 08 Oct 201964mp is already nothing new. Wonder if they even try. have you heard about binning technology 12 mp is the maximum limit for getting a best shoot others are just spreading that 12 mp just to showoff high mega pixel doesnt mean camera are getting best !!!!

openthetech, 07 Oct 2019does led notification light compulsory......?????Not complusory but important for many

I just came across the comment section of wccftech about a purported Essential phone. There's a satire video about a taller iPhone, just like what Sony is doing with their "new" 21:9 format. Just look, hilarious!
