Sony's innovative "firsts": Infographic reveals the notable evolution of the Xperia line
by Peter Kostadinov / Jul 06, 2018, 6:26 AM
To better showcase its innovation feats over the years, Sony just compiled a nifty infographic that shows what it has achieved over the past few years and how its innovations have shaped the Xperia lineup of devices.
Showcasing its "firsts", Sony highlights a the following of its most notable phones:
- Sony Xperia Z for its unrivaled water-resistance at its time;
- Sony Xperia Z5 Premium for its 4K display;
- Sony SmartWatch 3, the first GPS-enabled Android Wear smartwatch;
- Sony Xperia XZ Premium for being the first one with a 4K HDR display, Gigabit download speeds, and super slow-motion;
- Sony Xperia XZ1 for the first phone with real-time 3D face scanning;
- Sony Xperia XZ2 for being the first phone to record 4K HDR videos.
Of course, Sony as a company has lots of other notable firsts, but its mobile division seems to be particularly proud of these specific innovations it introduced to the market. We sure hope many others come along the way as well.
Check out the infographic right below:

Except Samsung shreds stock Android and Frankensteins it back together with options like Comic Sans fonts and bloated blue tools and rainbow pin dots. And who needs a headphone jack when you have new Bluetooth audio codecs being given away to the world free by Sony.

HTC, Motorola, and Nokia also have long list of being first. Now lets see, who's the first among those to go bankrupt.

Yes, I agree. Motorola and Nokia where inventors of mobile phones with long history. Lost the grip, and got sold: Motorola to Google then dropped to Lenovo, Nokia "kind a sold" to Microsoft and actually exited the phone business. HTC made first Android phone, etc, lot of inventions... but could not stand to competition. The Sony mobile is also struggling. As well as LG too. Only thing that keeps Sony and LG afloat is the backup of the their brands, as large consumer electronics production.

Find X has no front speakers nor water protection. It is not worth

You also got the Xperia Acro S, and then the Xperia V when it came to water resistance in Flagship smartphones.... a couple of iterations before the Z. IP55 and IP57 My Acro S lasted about 3 years with fully checked water resistance, even on salt water...

It's not about doing something first. It's all about making something useful and easy to work with.

I think the biggest reason Sony isn't big in the US is because no carriers sell them. I still don't understand why people love to go into debt just to buy a phone... But it is probably because people don't realize that paying for a phone over time with an increased cost (interest) is not a deal it is an anchor of debt that a carrier tries to lock all it's customers in.

They only need to make great phones that can beat everyone else. Being first doesn't make you the greatest
