Sony Mobile released eleven different Xperia devices during 2015 (not including their dual SIM counterparts). The flagship highlight of the year was the Xperia Z5 series, with the Xperia Z3+/Z4 pretty much a token offering outside of Japan. The Xperia Z5 models received solid reviews, particularly around the new camera and fingerprint sensor.
Sony’s main global mid-range model was the Xperia M4 Aqua, with the M5 launching selectively in the second half of the year. For selfie fans, Sony had the Xperia C4 and C5 Ultra with larger displays and front-facing flash.
Sony Mobile’s entry level models were focused on the Xperia E4 and E4g that were released early in the year, but we saw no new budget models appear in 2015. Sony has said a number of times it will focus on the premium segment, so it will be interesting to see where this leaves the entry/mid ranges next year.
On the tablet front, Sony only released one model in 2015 – the Xperia Z4 Tablet, but it remains one of the best Android tablets released this year in our view. Combining it with the BKB50 Bluetooth Keyboard only enhances the experience.
