Wouldn't be surprised if Sony did it. Sony is not just a mobile a company so in terms of stability they have it.

Half the reason Sony's smartphones sell bad is because they had a few lines of their phones that were 5.5" and bigger and now they're doing it again!

Sony could be the Apple of Android if they just streamlined their products into neat understandable categories. 1 phablet, 1 compact, 1 regular in the top of the line range. That is literally all they need to focus on to stay profitable. The mid range market is going to be flooded by Chinese makers and there is literally no way of competing with them without getting the same favors from the Chinese government.

"Profitability over scale" I guess. As long as they keep a streamlined smartphone lineup, they should be fine. No more midrangers (M4 Aqua and E4/g are all they need), one Z4 and a Z4 Ultra. No new compacts as the Z3 Compact as it STILL has no competition. Keep pushing the battery life envelope and bring more phones to Lollipop.

they need to improve the displays , the z3 range finally adressed the crappy viewing angles and brightness issues,
but still a long way to go to match the leaders.
I'm not talking pixels , but other things, like color temperature , color shift and accuracy.
Funny how they messed up in displays when their TVs have been recognized as among the best.
Same for cameras , how can a Company like sony still not get their camera software right ? it baffles me.

They intentionally make their displays more blue. It's to give it the appearance of being more brightness and vibrancy.

Z4 ultra or T4 ultra ?.... It should be z4 ultra.

The "4" is for H1 2015. H2 2015 will be "5"

Phonearena is giving Sony boys some hope. A story like VAIO, no one believed Sony was going to let it go unless that day came and diehard fans crying like little kids without their candies. Instead of giving such a bitter compliment, why don't you tell them to be prepared for that somber day to avoid a huge disappointment? Anyway, we can't fight against their fate, even Sony themself. :(

@SuperNova Hello kimchi land or i will call you bloody samsung fanboy. South korea it's just used to be poor country a lot of county saved you ass for 50 year ago. You copy everything. Do you know about your brand ? Samsung Copy a lot of patentability from japan Tv technology smartphone have you proud ? I never seen it before about cheating brand on law court. Pioneer is a one you are copied it too.

Nice comment, racist boy. Samsung copied Japan companies a lot that's why those companies are nowhere to be seen. LoL
Stop being a Korean hater, dude. Yo're not living in the 70s anymore. You've gotta admit that Samsung is much more innovative than Sony Panasonic, Hitachi and more combined. We have our own AMOLED tech, advancing nano tech, semiconductor... which Japanese are still behind.
A better example:
Samsung and LG are the world's largest TV makers. Sony is losing money, and might withdraw from it very soon :)

Nice try, ass but you're the one who is racist here. You think your pesky little fanboy community would help make Samsung great?NO. YOU THINK YOUR COMMENTS ABOUT SONY WOULD MAKE SAMSUNG'S HARDWARE SUPERIOR?NO. YOU ARE NOTHING BUT A PIECE OF CRAP LYING AROUND ALL DAY WITH HIS s**tTY SAMSUNG PHONES LYING AROUND WITH GAY PORN. DONT FORGET SAMSUNG USED SONY SENSORS IN ALMOST ALL ITS PHONES IN THE PAST. AWWW, YOU THINK THEM PRETTY PICS CAME FROM SAMSUNG???DING DING DING.

Calm down, dude. It looks like you're more hurt than some Sony fanboys here. LoL Like it or not, Samsung is making profit while billion people around the world support their innovation. Otherwise, Sony is struggling and trying to survive. That's the fact.
Samsung have their own ISOCELL sensor in case you don't know. The reason they use some Sony sensor because of supply shortage with their best selling Galaxy line while Sony Xperia have failed continuously. Sony should thank Samsung for being its customer, if not there is nothing Sony is making money from. :)

I agree but I still dont want you and your fanboyishness in this site. Go to Cnet or something. You bash too much.
