Pleasantly surprised Sony was 2nd on Android. I barely ever see Sony phones in public. Absolutely love my Z2, best phone ever made.

Perhaps sony excel in some place only. For me, I was surprised that there were 111 OnePlus user in PA.

Voted by Sony butthurt fans who might have a very old generation sony phone and can't upgrade to newer phones. sony hardly sells anything and with the evolution or I may say revolution of Xiaomi, OnePlus I expect them to be much lower than Xiaomi.

My all 3 phones was sony, SE elm, Xperia Ray and Now Xperia SP. Xperia SP was the best phone I have ever used, It scores 26561 in Antutu, Can play any game, despite average cam and pretty decent display with poor viewing angles it was the best phone for 220$ can buy. my next phone will Xperia Z3 compact. I have seen most of galaxys in my life. my brother and friends. Samsung has worst software among all androids. My friends GS3 is useless now after updating to 4.3JB , it lags everytime. My brother's galaxy core cant even watch a HD video which was in higher price than SP at that time. and my friend's GS4 was restarted everytime when opens the camera. I have to wait long time to load the Gallary. Samsung just did massive marketing! nothing better or worthiness for money.

that means most sony phone users here are using old sonyphones , because their sales for the last two quarters were very poor compared to others.

If you are correct then that means people like their old Sony phones more than the newer alternatives that they could buy now.

yes I'm right Sony Mobile sold only 9.8 Millions smartphones compared to LG's 16.8Millions Smartphones for the last quarter. while Xiaomi sold 17.3 Millions, and Lenovo 's 16.9 Millions. Samsung's 78millions.

sony xperia z1 is almost the same as xperia z2 and z2 and z3 are almost identicaltoo so i think most sony phone users have no interest to upgrade their phones every 6 months.

I love my Sony Xperia Z Ultra. But I was also surprised to see them so high given how hard it is to find them in any carrier store. That means people are willing to pay big money for those phones.

Lol! I see more sony phones than samsung or apple in my college in India... I someplaces, sony still has that "premium" name and a "wow" phone equal to apple whereas in some places, it's just a normal phone with buggy soft..

I remember back 10 years ago if not longer I used to work at best buy for some part-time money in the computer section and you could not sell an Indian person into anything but Sony it was like selling cars they believed Toyota was the god sent when it came to cars just like Sony was everything to them TVs laptops computers in general

I love mine. I got the note 4 because of the bigger screen but the M8 is one of the best phones I've ever had.
