Despite all their flaws i still like them. It's actually very said because the same way you say why have others not tried to fight the "niche" Sony has not tried to be the mobile leaders they can and should be.
But the facts still stand that for years they have had more draw backs and worse pricing. And the pages of their fans are some of the worst out there.

Still, I'm going to expect when someone here is going to be cornered and buys a Xperia just because they like it over the other brands. My next phone will be a Sony Xperia (1 series), that's for sure. It's like when some people judge those who purchase Mercedes-AMG One over Aston Martin Valkyrie V12 because some say Valkyrie did better on F1-inspired hypercars, when AMG One has its own merits over Valkyrie V12 that not even Valkyrie has.

They had those massive advantages over the Xperia Pro, but yet there are no competitions in this segment, even after 2 years since the Xperia Pro started selling. This implies that Sony has the whole cake for themselves and can enjoy it without getting bothered. Because no one has tried to knock on the Sony niche market since 2020, as the others focus on the mainstream market audience that is fiercer than the food industry, while Sony or very few brands, like Fairphone, focus on niches. Just like the headphone jack, MicroSDXC slot, or even shutter button, Sony did the absolute ridiculous with the Xperia Pro (also flawed, of course). And the Xperia Pro itself may already have been sold to the enterprise that needed it, and the successor may be on the line in 2024.

But that's why people have issues with Sony here. The absurd fans that are even worse than iPhone fans used to be. That and most of it is not hate. They over priced way more than anyone else while providing less and having more software and hardest failures on top of it. Now it's not as much hardware failures luckily but the rest still holds up.

Counteracting its own entire purpose and negating the bs reason the fans tried claiming it was worth its absurd and outlandish price
Anonymous, 26 Sep 2023But you are to miss the point and take it to heart in fan defense of Sony Well, what do you expect me to do? The users of this site hate Sony the most, with a burning passion, from all the brands available here. Not even LG had that amount as Sony did. Even when there's an article that doesn't even mention Sony a little bit, they will scapegoat Sony at all costs. I mean, I do even assume some users here are also the reason why Sony had to change the Xperia design language back in 2018 from boxy to curvy; that design language was hated by many Sony fans. Sure, Sony isn't perfect, but at least I found my comfort brand to use. Hate me all you want; I did what I could. I owned 8 Sony phones for 12 years consecutively, from Live with Walkman to 1 II, so what I did here was based on my experiences. End of story

YUKI93, 18 Sep 2023That is interesting. We Malaysians never officially get the Xperia Pro at all. But then again,... moremmWave 5G tech was indeed the selling point of Xperia Pro (2020). Xperia Pro (2020) is the only Xperia in Sony-Alpha-supervised era that doesn't emphasizes on camera like the other Xperia did, but the screen is the one emphasize the strongest here, as the viewfinder for broadcasting purposes, so making mmWave 5G tech as its core feature are the reason why Xperia Pro (2020) has very limited market launch compared to every Xperia sold since 2019/Alpha-takeover era.
ghenceaRO, 19 Sep 2023Soon there will be no package at all :) no manual no instructions no nothing just the phone.Manual and instructions are still mandatory to sells a phone in every country by every phone brands and Sony knows that. They aren't dumb to remove those from the packaging.
I would love to see a capable and advanced Xperia 1 vi at the MWC 2024.
However, I don't think this is going to happen because of:
Historically, Sony has released its Xperia II in February, the Xperia III in April, and the Xperia IV and V in May.
So, there is a tendency to set the respective release dates later rather than earlier.
The time between end of July 2023 and February 2024 would be unusually short to develop and release a new flagship.
Moreover, people who just bought a new Xperia V may feel betrayed when a successor comes out just few months later.
Another peculiarity would be the 6x "large sensor" module.

2. Louder speakers don't mean they are better just like how you said higher screen resolution doesn't mean it's better screen. Sony speakers are EQed for voice with less subby low end
3. Battery endurance of Xperia 1 outlasts any Android flagship phone out there sans Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra. Endurance of Xperia 5 bests Samsung S23 and iPhone Pro
