i find sony phones to be nice indeed. the only problem is when it comes to smartphone, people don't "think" about sony at all after the departure of standard music phones (sony ericsson).

They set themselves up for failure in the US by offering phones only on AT&T. They're excluding nearly 200 million potential buyers by leaving out the other 3 carriers.

Samsung sells multiple devices on all 4 carriers and some of the regional carriers and Apple sells iPhones on 3 of the 4 plus a couple regional players too. This is the reason they are far more successful. The Xperias aren't bad devices.

I don't believe this at all!!!!!!!

HTC, Samsung and Apple are seemingly the leaders to me as I have NEVER EVER seen an Sony phone ever. Don't know anyone with one and I work full time as an IT pro and part time as a waiter so I'm not cooped up in an office or my house all the time. I see phones everywhere.

And moreover......according to Zeus....ATT is the only Sony phone carrier limiting them even more. Does anyone here know anyone with one of these????

I believe the opposite meaning is intended. In English, the current sentence would mean the phone is being ignored globally, while quite popular in the US.
