Sony s profit dropped 86 percent year-on-year as the strong performance of the Japanese Yen, fallout from the Kumamoto earthquake and company restructuring weighed onThe Japanese electronics giant posted a small $48 million 4.8 billion JPY profit in its Q2 2016 financial period, down from $205 million last year.On the positive side, though, its mobile business again showed that it has stopped bleeding cash.The Sony Mobile business had long impacted earnings, costing it over $500 million over its last financial year, but thanks to downsizing and a focus on models with higher margins its performance has been shored up.Sony Mobile Communications carded a $37 million 3.7 billion JPY profit for Q2, a huge improvement on the $172 million 20.6 billion loss from one year ago and progress on the previous quarter s ¥400 million $4 million operating profit.Sony sold 3.5 million smartphones in its most recent quarter, although total sales were down 40 percent year-on-year as the company reduced its mid-range product family and concentrated on regions where it is strongest.
Sony's new Xperia XZ Premium smartphone, featuring an advanced camera and 4K HDR display, won the "Best New Smartphone or Connected Mobile Devices at MWC 2017" award at the annual Global Mobile Awards (Glomo awards).Unveiled at the MWC 2017 convention, the XZ Premium in two colour variants; luminous chrome and deep-sea black will hit the market in late spring.Along with the device, Sony said a range of supporting accessories would be available, including quick charger UCH12W(vi) and Bluetooth headset with speaker SBH56."Xperia XZ Premium is our most technologically capable smartphone ever," said Hiroki Totoki, president and chief executive officer at Sony Mobile Communications in a statement issued on 2 March."We're honoured by this recognition – Xperia XZ Premium has received endorsement from operator partners, media, consumers and industry peers alike, which is testament to our relentless pursuit of innovation, to deliver great products and experiences for consumers," said Totoki.A key feature of the phone is Sony's new Motion Eye camera system.
Sony has had a fairly busy year so far.Of particular note was the Xperia XZ1 Compact – here was a smartphone with fiercely competitive innards, yet in a smaller form factor.It seemed like Sony was determined to continue releasing smaller versions of their flagship phones, while still being able to offer a decent level of performance on these smaller models.“We’re continuously listening to our fanbase, and they’re quite loyal with the brand,” says Diana Hernandez - Global Product Marketing Manager at Sony Mobile Communications.“A lot of users love to have a smaller device that can be carried around everywhere, and we found that in our latest surveys there’s quite a strong following for these kinds of devices.So at the end of the day the customers can enjoy the best performance from our devices, no matter which size they prefer to use.”

Sony has a fantastically loyal fan base for its smartphones, but even if you're not fully aligned with the Xperia way of doing things there are some enticing handsets on offer and we're here to find the best Sony phone for you.Its high-end smartphones are designed for those who love media on the move, with large screens, plenty of power under the hood and, in some cases, eye-popping 4K displays.Sony takes the technology it's developed for its TV and camera ranges and crams it into smartphones, offering you solid specs and enticing features.Whether it's a flagship that packs a punch, or a mid-range handset with a mix of design and specs, if you're decided that you want to buy from this brand there's one for you in our best Sony phones round-up.However, if you're hankering for the latest and greatest from Sony you might want to hold on.The Sony Xperia 1 was launched on February 25, 2019, but won't hit stores (and likely our review team) until June.
Sony has many businesses but, apparently, they don’t like talking to each other that much, at least not the mobile and imaging ones.The internal rivalry between these two divisions has resulted in Xperia phones that, to be blunt, don’t live up to the company’s camera reputation.Almost a year later, DxOMark reviews the Xperia XZ3 and it lands near the bottom of the list, surpassed even by the ultra cheap Xiaomi Pocophone F1 or phones from 2017.DxOMark says that the Xperia XZ3 is the second best Sony phone they’ve tested so far but that is almost an insult considering that best is the 2017 Xperia XZ Premium and that there are five phones between them.Those five include a 2017 LG V30, a 2015 Galaxy S6 edge, and a mid-range Archos Diamond Omega.To be fair, the Xperia XZ3’s performance wasn’t totally atrocious based on DxOMark’s remarks.

According to a new report from Nikkei Asian Review, Sony mobile is about to experience a tectonic shift.The report alleges that Sony will cut its mobile division in half by 2020.If this is true, it will result in roughly 2,000 people either losing their jobs or getting shifted to a new department at Sony.It should be noted that Nikkei Asian Review does not cite a source in its article on this matter.However, the publication is highly-regarded and trustworthy.Besides, although this news is disappointing to hear, it’s not exactly unexpected.
Sony is set to halve the workforce at its struggling mobile division in a bid to make it profitable from 2020.According to Nikkei, as many as 2,000 roles will be cut in the restructure.Some Japanese employees will be transferred to other divisions but workers in Europe and China will be offered voluntary redundancy.Sony Mobile is the only loss-making venture at the Japanese electronics giant and the company wants to reduce its fixed costs as it seeks a return to profitability.At its peak, Sony commanded a nine per cent share of the global mobile phone market.However, in 2019, it is a minor player in the smartphone space, commanding a market share of less than one per cent, with Europe and Japan its main markets.
It has barely been three months since Sony unveiled its latest attempt at staying in the rat race that is the smartphone market.And while it won’t be another six or seven months before it comes out, it seems that information about the company’s next-gen phones is already starting to appear.The good news is that Sony isn’t fundamentally moving away from its new design found on the Xperia 1.The bad news is that Sony isn’t fundamentally moving away from its new design found on the Xperia 1 and, soon, the Xperia 2 and 20 as well.The Xperia 1’s defining feature, which the mid-range Xperia 10 also inherited, is, of course, its ultra-wide or ultra-tall screen which Sony has dubbed “CinemaWide”.This 21:9 screen ratio, it argues, is the perfect ratio for watching videos, even if there aren’t that much ultra wide format videos anyway.
The global launch of the Honor 20 in London today (May 21) was supposed to be a casual, normal one for Huawei, the world’s second largest smartphone vendor behind Samsung.However the legal roller-coaster that preceded it has now transformed the event into something special.The past 24 hours have seen Google announce it is planning to pull the Chinese company’s access to many of its core Android apps and services, including the Google Play Store, Gmail, Search and Chrome - although this was followed a few hours later by the US Commerce Department temporarily lifting the trade ban with Huawei.Tensions have been simmering over the last 12 months before the Trump administration struck hard - and while Huawei has been developing its own OS in case of an Android ban, it is the clampdown on Google’s proprietary services that is likely to be the coup de grace.Huawei is globally known for its smartphone brands (both its eponymous offering and its separate Honor line) but the current accusations are likely to be related to its lesser known but equally critical enterprise business.So the consumer arm of Huawei is - to some extent - a victim of collateral damage.
Sony’s smartphone business has been in the doldrums for a while, as the likes of Huawei, Samsung, and Xiaomi streak ahead.The Japanese giant confirmed last year that it was investigating the possibility of downsizing operations in certain regions as a result.Now, these plans have indeed become a reality.Sony held its investor relations day this week (h/t: Xperia Blog), and one of the slides in its presentation showed a list of markets that will be dropped or see reduced operations.More specifically, the affected markets include Africa, Australia, Canada, India, Latin America, the Middle East, South East Asia.The slide also reveals Sony has way more defocused/dropped countries than focus markets.
Sony’s newest premium handset, the Sony Xperia 1, launched at a whopping $949 / £849 price tag – that’s one of the highest prices of any Sony phone, and it puts it in league with the Samsung Galaxy S10, Samsung’s most recent flagship handset.Both devices have high-end features like triple-lens rear cameras, novel screen tech, and the newest processors available, but they’re also different in a few ways – you can tell as much from the pictures.We’ve compared the two premium handsets so you can see what the difference between them is, and work out if one of the devices is the next phone for you.Samsung Galaxy S10 vs Sony Xperia 1: price and availabilityBoth phones are available in most areas, but there are a few exceptions – the Sony Xperia 1 isn’t available in Australia, for example.If you want your high-end smartphone as cheap as possible, you’re looking at the Samsung Galaxy S10, which costs $899 / £799 / AU$1,349 for its 128GB version – that’s a little more affordable than the Sony Xperia 1, which costs $949 / £849 for the same amount of storage space.
If you've spent a huge sum of money on a phone, you don't want a cheeky thief to swipe it right out of your pocket, and phones in the future might have a handy feature that stops them doing just that – or, at least, makes it a lot harder for them to pick your pocket.A patent filed by Swedish telecom company Ericsson (which you might know from the Sony Ericsson phones), shows new tech that phones could use to become much, much harder to steal – in theory.The technology would recognize who was holding a phone from their heartbeat – and if someone unauthorized was holding the phone, it would enter 'low-friction' mode.In 'low-friction' mode the phone would vibrate quickly, making it a lot harder for potential thieves to pick up – in effect, it becomes too slippery to easily pick up.The tech also includes a 'hi-friction' mode, so when you're holding your phone, it's a lot less likely to slip out of your hands and fall to the ground.In theory, 'low-friction' mode would help stop pesky pickpockets pinching your phone right out of your pocket, giving you that extra level of security when you're in a busy crowd – of course it won't help if your phone is stolen in any other way, but it still could be a useful feature.
Sony took advantage of the MWC in February to present its flagship of 2019, the Xperia 1.Alongside two new mid-range models, the Sony Xperia 10 and 10 Plus.In May, we met the new Xperia Ace, a 5-inch phone that is only available in Japan.The ones that will reach the rest of the markets are the Xperia 20.Whose features and renders have already been filtered.Now, in addition, it seems that the Japanese company is also working on a new high-end model.
Presently, Sony Xperia smartphones show declining figures, however, the Japanese manufacturer does not intend to give up its mobile division.Other established names such as Samsung, Apple, LG, and HTC have also had to relinquish market share to emerging Chinese manufacturers.The likes of Huawei, Xiaomi, Oppo and OnePlus is storming the market with qualitative, innovative and affordable models.Possibly the coming 5G era and the arrival of new display technologies can help Sony to present positive numbers again.What this device will look like is still unknown, but the company will undoubtedly choose its own approach.Last month, the Chinese mobile phone network CNMO revealed that Sony is developing a foldable 5G smartphone.
Adding a soundbar to your entertainment center is the easiest and quickest way to enhance your viewing experience.Not only is it great for small apartments or living rooms, but it’s more affordable than a traditional surround sound system.While we’re on the topic of affordability, today’s deal represents just that.The Sony HT-CT290 Soundbar System is currently 46 percent off for a limited time over at Google Express.The first thing you’ll notice about this soundbar is its slim design.It’ll fit perfectly well into most tight rooms, but don’t let its small size fool you; this soundbar packs a punch.
Asus already launched its 2019 flagship with the Zenfone 6, but the company isn’t done.Enter the ROG Phone 2, the follow-up to last year’s gaming-centric ROG Phone.The fun starts with the 6.59-inch AMOLED display, featuring a 120Hz refresh rate.Previously, you could only get such a high refresh rate on a smartphone if you were okay with an IPS LCD screen, but no more.We fell in love with the OnePlus 7 Pro‘s 90Hz AMOLED display, and we’re very impressed with the ROG Phone 2’s 120Hz AMOLED display so far.Let’s take a look at the rest of the Asus ROG Phone 2 specs in the table below.
