    Sony cannot compete with these Chinese player which are currently ruling the market.! But these Chinese sellers are not here to stay. Who knows we will see these companies still exist in the coming years. But Sony will.

    They reduced the focus in Brazil too. They announced they will not manufacture the Xperia X in the country. All the units will be imported. But Brazil have a import fee of 60%. The Xperia X are being sold for (+ or -) US$1150,00 In a country were the minimal wage is around US$267. No one will buy. And their next step is, probably, close the mobile business in the country.

    I rather buy anything then an iPhone but I would rather go with anything else then a Sony just not an iphone

  • Qazi Faisal

    I think its pricing issue the fact that Sony is going after only the niche consumer rather then the premium consumer shows that’s why I bought a note 5 over a Sony product . There focusing on there niche consumers hence Europe middle east and Japan. In india China and USA we want more bang for our buck which means there are better options then sony.

    Build phones like xiaomi,meizu or letv..
    Because they spend less on advertising…
