Sony – Used Smart Mobiles skip to Main Content

Sony Mobile Communications Inc. (formerly Sony Ericsson) is a multinational mobile phone manufacturing company headquartered in Tokyo, Japan, and is a wholly owned subsidiary of Sony Corporation. It was founded on October 1, 2001 as a joint venture between Sony and the Swedish telecommunications equipment company Ericsson, under the name Sony Ericsson. Sony acquired Ericsson’s share in the venture on February 16, 2012.

Sony Mobile Communications has research and development facilities in Tokyo, Japan; Chennai, India; Lund, Sweden; Beijing, China and Silicon Valley, United States. Sony Mobile was the fourth-largest smartphonemanufacturer by market share in the fourth quarter of 2012 with 9.8 million units shipped.

In the recent years, Sony’s first in the line of next generation flagship smartphones was the Sony Xperia Z, also the first smartphone from the Z family. Announced at CES 2013 and released on 9 February, it almost instantly became a big hit. The first water-proof Android flagship released by Sony was shipped with a Full HD 5” screen covered by Gorilla Glass, quad-core Qualcomm APQ8064 CPU, Adreno 320 GPU, 16 GB of internal storage, microSD card slot, and 2 GB of RAM. The Xperia Z had been initially shipped with Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean but got updates to Android 4.2, 4.3 and finally Android 4.4 KitKat. Android 5.0 Lollipop is standing in the queue and is planned to be launched early next year.

In 2014 Sony stated to be focusing more on the high-end phone market and reducing the number of low and mid-end products. The first model launched in 2015 was the Xperia Z3+, featuring updated internals in a body similar to the Xperia Z3.

The current flagship device of Sony is the Sony Xperia Z5 (see our review in a separate post), a smartphonethat is water and dust proof with an IP68 rating, Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 Chipset, Android 5.1 OS, and a 23-megapixel 4K camera that has a G Lens, Exmor RS, and BIONZ image processor.

Sony’s latest update to its “no compromise” smaller flagship smartphone proves size really isn’t everything with three-day battery, top-spec features and a great camera. While the rest of the market has been stretching phone screen sizes, Sony has been offering smaller “Compact” phones since 2013 fitting the same processor and camera from its larger flagship phones into a more manageable size. The Xperia Z3 Compact was an excellent phone with over two-days battery life. The Xperia Z5 Compact promises something very similar.

The Xperia Z series has a decent place in the flagship market, lining up impressive phones and is a true commercial success for Sony. Starting with the Xperia ZSony announced that they would release a new flagship device every six months.
