We are at the end of 2018 and there’s no denying it’s been a challenging year for Sony Xperia fans. Sony Mobile finally changed its design that much of the media were after, but after initially being excited about the prospects of carrying its existing design language into narrower bezels, what we instead got was a design that, while comfortable in the hand, left a lot to be desired in looks.

In making their phones more ‘modern’, the phones lost much of what made them attractive to fans in the first place. The Xperia phone’s identity became lost in sea of ubiquitous looking smartphones. Thank goodness Sony didn’t adopt a notch, but they did get rid of the headphone jack, which for a company that prides itself on audio – and all of the heritage that comes with it – was a backwards move.

It was therefore perhaps no surprise therefore, to see Sony Mobile fall further behind, and the recent financial reports paint a bleak picture. Sales this year were the lowest ever, and the company is cutting staff to stop the bleed. It will be interesting to see if, and how, Sony can turn this around in 2019.
