    Glad to see a video like this! Its sad people dont know about Sony or think they are bad. Sony is the one that shaped the phone technologies. And Sony's phones last for decades. My old Z2 and XZ both still work fine and not even scratched.

    Still as wonderful as that phone is, most of us don't have a grand, to spend for a 2 year phone. My pixel 2 XL vibrates while listening to videos or music too. I like the Sony features but like I say, I don't have a thousand dollars plus, for something that will be be obsolete two years from purchase.

    I love Sony phones, however! The charging port has been the weakness for the high end Xperia that I have had and that's on two different models. The phone still works, but if the charging port is unable to hook to charger after a while then it becomes unusable. I still have them cause maybe I can have that fixed when I can. They are really good phones and the screen is really crisp.

    I had a Xperia z3 back in 2014. It was a fantastic phone. It was also made of butter. It bent constantly just looking at it, and when it bent the screen cracked. When the screen cracked, you could not use the screen below the crack. So it was useless

    people don't buy sony is mainly because Sony Japan don't have official dealers worldwide! they don't club up with gsm providers to push devices and frankly they wana keep their market to selective individual who understand the sony! SamsungS21 ultra is around usd1200 fone with no expandable storage and no headphone jack and slow processor with hefty android and samsung3.1 ui! where Sony Xperia 1"2 is around $1000 with expandable storage and headfone jack and SN865 with stock android 10 (upgradable to 11) but samsung will win because of their market grip over the years!

    Maybe Sony phones might sell better if they focus on things that people actually want. Like price, ease-of-use, better batteries, smooth UI etc. Instead of expensive toys and overloaded features that most people won't use.

    I had xperia xz premium. It was laggy, full of bugs, and after a year and a half the phone just kept crashing and wont turn on for a couple of hours whenever the storage was over 80% full. Not just that but the camera also smears all the colours with really weird photo rendering. I'd never get the new sony phones because of the ridiculous aspect ratio that hurts games and videos, and the lack of a headphone jack. Any other cheaper main brand is better in every way.

    I think Sony’s problem is one of perception. The appeal Sony Ericsson had was so big that everyone dreamed of buying it but since it became Sony that image is gone! Sony should immediately change its lettering style of name to that style of Sony Ericsson! It was a premium feeling with that logo of Sony Ericsson and the lettering style!

    If the comments section is anything to go by, 8:57 graph makes sense if devices can last from 3-5 years without needing to replace it. That huge 39% of people are likely the people still using their phones in 2015-19 region. It would be interesting to know what their market share was in 2020 is to see if it started going back up again with people at the point of needing to upgrade again. The percentages shown year on year from 2015 to 2019 are likely just the "I need to have the latest" enthusiasts you were referring to earlier in the video that rely on or use Sony's cameras.

    I just bought a Sony xz3 a while back. I also just bought a oneplus 7 pro. Because the Sony is just...plain. It has great specs on paper but in real life, it's just kinda fallen flat for me. Like nothing is particularly remarkable. They ruined the phone with the android 10 update. I'm a Sony fan and have been slightly more disappointed with every recent release
