Leaked documents from Samsung

What logic does Samsung think that it’s a good idea to destroy an entire phone just because of it using a third party part.

Welp_im_damned,

Honestly they don’t have to lower the price. If they just opened up the software I would make the jump.

Sony already does this and doesn’t do the stupid camera drm anymore now.

Welp_im_damned,

You have been able to buy Sony phones unlocked and able to get the bootloader. But with the IV/V Sony lock it because of Verizon. https://lemdro.id/pictrs/image/a1b7d946-2f4f-4002-a396-62e9efd6bb5d.png

There are ways to bypass it on xda.

Welp_im_damned,

Sony will do the bare minimum that they are forced to. So 5 years due to the EU. Repairability idk about that. Parts are hard to source outside of Asia for Xperia phones.

I hope they improve the amp for the jack at least.

  • The naming is dreadful. What comes after the Xperia 1? Why the Xperia 1 II of course! I swear only their console division is capable of clear and sensible naming.

Their phone division is run by their camera division and unfortunately the naming makes sense in that situation

  • They’ve fallen seriously behind in software support. This will be mitigated by EU legislation forcing longer support, but it’ll still be behind Samsung/Google.

I think only Samsung and Google are doing 7 years of updates. Plus fun fact Sony releases Asop builds of newer versions of android 3 years after eol. But for some reason they won’t extend updates for their gms roms https://lemdro.id/pictrs/image/fb737914-22cf-4dfc-b367-9fa2258ac4ab.png

They removed the drm on phone released after 2019 with the start of the current Xperia 1/5/10 lineup.
