Sony sold over 4 Million Xperia Z in 40 days

Being first at anything certainly has its perks, and who better to tell us this than Sony who according to analyst said sold more than 4-million of their current flagship device in less than two months.

This success is attributed to the fact that the Xperia Z lacked a strong competition in the 5-inch, 1080p category. Even though HTC beat Sony to the punch when the Taiwanese firm released the HTC Butterfly, it didn’t gain too much traction on the market.

Furthermore, the handset is just simply awesome both inside and out. The deadly combo of gorgeous IP57-certified glass body and quad-core processor with 2GB RAM made it an easy choice for those who are looking for a top of the line handset.

Unfortunately, the source didn’t mention where it got the sales information besides citing “analyst”. Nevertheless, from what we saw from the Xperia Z, it’s got the tools to pull this kind of numbers. You can check out our full review of the Sony Xperia Z here.

    I’m glad that Sony is doing well with Xperia Z. I like the commercial for this smartphone, and Sony really deserves attention. I got to try it a few days ago, but it didn’t feel right on my hands. :( The rectangular shape with no round edges felt like holding a scientific calculator. But I do hope that Sony sell more of these babies! :)

    • Xperia&apple says:

      Haha, nagkalat n trolls ng LG, kya nman mas mabenta ang LG when it comes to TV’s kz mas mura tlga xa wen compared to SONY. Bumili kz aq ng tv recently at un ung napansin ko. Pero xempre mapapansin mo tlga ung premium feel ng SONY products over LG. When it comes to phones ngaun lng tlga naging solo ang SONY ung mga phone last year was designed under SONY ERICSSON pa. So meaning bago palang ang sila when it comes to mobile phones. Even tough n mas matagal n LG sa paggawa ng android phones mabagal din cla mag update ng OS, mabagal lng ung SONY mag update ng phones nila na designed under Ericsson which was the Xperia S/P/U/Sola at Go, pero ung phones released by mid 2012 like Xperia V/T/TX/E and others ay updated na sa jellybean 4.1.2. Like nung asa Optimus g.

    • LG TV says:

      sorry
      F.Y.I.
      LG’s TV/DISPLAY/SCREEN etc is by FAR better than Sony’s TV/DISPLAY/SCREEN etc…

      YEARLY HAKOT AWARDS ANG LG Electronics sa TV/DISPLAY at iba pang Electronic appliances
      KUMPARA SA SONY!

      KILALA ANG LG-DISPLAY sa true to life color sila rin ang provider sa sa APPLE’S ipod, i-phones’s display, etc…

      TRUE HD IPS plus Display is FAR BETTER THAN Sony’s Version…

    • LG TV says:

      @ xperia &apple
      yup dati SONYERICSSON
      DALAWANG COMPANIES YAN NA NAGSAMA RIGHT?
      BAKIT SILA KAMO NAGHIWALAY? KASI NGA NALUGI SILA AT NILAMPASAN SILA NG LG NOONG 2007-2008 SA THIRD SPOT, AT TULUYAN SILANG DI NA NAKABAWI…

      ANG LG NAMAYAGPAG DIN SILA NUNG MGA PANAHON NA YON KASO A YEAR AFTER BUMAGSAK DIN SILA PERO NGUN BUMABAWI NA DIN SILA…
      AT SA KASAMAANGPALAD NAGING 3RD PA SILA NGUN…?

      sa TV? LG at SAMSUNG ang tunay na competitors…

      TRUE HD IPS+ VS. SUPER AMOLED Display

      kaya nga nagsasampahan sila ng kaso( regarding OLED) dahil pareho silang MAGAGALING SA PART NA USAPIN NA YAN…

      SONY ? PSP okay tayo dyan…

    • LG TV says:

      cheaper price?
      YES!
      THAT’S A GOOD ADVANTAGE NG LG OVER SONY.
      MAS OKAY NA ANG QUALITY AT MAS MURA PA ANG PRICE.

      F.Y.I. is sa pinaka reason kung bakit mas mahal ang SONY ay dahil sa mahal din ang ginagastos nila sa AD!
      at HINDI dahil sa mas maganda ang quality nila!

      see…

      LG Optimus G has better Video Over Xperia Z in MOST OF THE TIME?

  5. weryou@ says:

    With that price tag, they managed to sell 4 million units (assuming that the sources are true). Wonders how many would have been sold if they priced it lower. >_<

  6. Kami says:

    Im really so in love with this phone!
    Just waiting for some drop in the price! XD

  7. Yusuf says:

    I pity those who bought it. Goodluck on your updates!

  8. Denmark says:

    I agree with Yusuf. Kahit anong ganda ng phone ng Sony if hinde sila ganun kasipag mag update ng mga unit nila, no use! I bought last year ng Sony Xperia Sola, wala pang 1 year wala na makuhang update and I compared to other much high end Xperia device, same scenario. Di na talag ako bibili ng Sony phone.

  9. nikola says:

    This is actually good news for sony.

  10. enrico says:

    Goodluck na lang sa mga nakabili. I have this phone and its so boring. There’s a lot of bugs. Sleep of death issue. Update is so slow. They promised to fix the issue but still waiting for it. I must say LG Optimus G is way far better than Xperia Z.

    • antux says:

      Ungas! Balik ka na lang sa iPhone mo!

    • enrico says:

      First of all, magbasa ka maigi. Hindi ako naka iPhone! Second, mag aral ka para magkaron ka naman ng breeding. This is my opinion because i have xperia z. Learn how to respect. Wala ka pinag aralan!

    • maka says:

      Eat shit, fucker.

    • anonymous says:

      Grabe naman magmura mga comment dito. Its his opinion. If satisfied kayo sa xperia, be grateful. Wala kayong magagawa kung yan ang experience nya sa xperia. Hindi kailangan magmura.

    • anonymous says:

      Nagmumura?! Asal kalye naman yung maka! Para phone lang may fucker pang nalalaman. Di naturuan ng magandang asal. Kawawa magulang nito

    • Sola says:

      Bakit kailangan magmura para sa isang unit ng phone? Opinyon nya yan eh. At yan ang experience nya sa xperia z dahil meron cya nun. Ako may xperia pero wala pa naman problem so far. Nataon siguro na defective nabili nya. Sony admit that may software issue nga sila. Kaya i think he is experiencing lags and sleep of death.

    Bitter kayo kasi hindi niyo afford bumili. wala kasi kayong pera. mga hampas lupa! hahahahha

    • Xperia ZL says:

      Walang pambili? Sabi nga nung nasa taas “i have this phone…” LOL! Hindi nagbabasa o hindi makaintindi ng english? Hahaha

    • BB says:

      Bakit tinamaan ka ba dahil sa hampas lupa? hahaha So nakabili ka nga nitong phone na ito. Kumakain ka pa ba hampas lupa? O wala ka ng pera?

    • Xperia ZL says:

      Di ka talaga marunong magbasa no? Ang sabi ko: “Sabi nga nung nasa taas “i have this phone…” Yung mga comment ng iba ang tinutukoy ko. hindi ako.

      Sinabi ko bang nakabili ako? marunong ka ba talaga magbasa? ikaw ang hampaslupa! hindi ka marunong umintindi! LOL! oh basahin mo muna bago ka mag-reply. parang kilala mo ako para manghusga ka. kawawa ka naman. wala ka talagang pinag-aralan. malamang beki ka o babae. halata sa pananalita mo. at kawawa ka naman. halatang mahirap ka lang. kasi ang mayayaman at may pinag-aralan, hindi nagsasalita ng hampaslupa.

    • JellyBean says:

      Ate, wala ka sa page ni Señora Santibañez. Andito ka sa YugaTech. Ingatan mo pananalita mo. Kung makapagsabi ka ng hampaslupa. Kala mo palamunin mo yung nag-comment. This is a tech blog. hindi applicable ang ganyang salita dito.

    A friend of mine bought the white Z last night and he was showing us the retail package. I was impressed by the looks and the weight of the phone.

    To whoever said na ngayon lang gumawa ng phone yung sony, try to research a bit. They were making phones since 1997. Then they partnered with Ericsson and then went solo again.
