Where to Buy New Sony Xperia Smartphones in the Philippines?

Sony Xperia Android smartphones still enjoy a loyal following in the Philippines, thanks to their previous market success and reputation for delivering high-quality devices. 

Personally, I've used many Sony Xperia models from the past as some of my daily drivers. Sony Xperia Z1, which I used as a daily phone for two straight years despite having several options, was one of my favorites and I think I'll always consider Sony Xperia XZ Premium, which remains in my personal collection, as one of the best-looking smartphones to ever be released.

Earlier today, I talked to TechPinas Friend and gadget enthusiast Enrique Olorvida who recently visited Sony Philippines' flagship store in SM Megamall and sadly, he confirmed that Sony Philippines does not sell new Xperia models in their physical outlets. "I think Sony Xperia line struggled to compete against Chinese handsets so they stopped selling new models here -- but I am not sure why exactly," he told me.

While Sony Philippines currently no longer offers the latest Xperia phones at their physical stores, enthusiasts can still get their hands on new Xperia models through trusted online sellers.

Sony Xperia 5 IV wasn't officially released in the Philippines but Pinoy Xperia fans can still buy it via some online retail stores. However, it is important to choose a trust-worthy store with a proven track-record of honesty and great customer service.

In this article, we'll explore some reliable platforms where Filipinos can purchase new Sony Xperia phones while ensuring a degree of warranty and customer satisfaction.

Kimstore: A Trusted Online Retailer

Kimstore is a popular online retailer known for offering a wide range of gadgets, including smartphones. Xperia fans can turn to Kimstore to order specific Sony Xperia models. This online store has built a solid reputation over the years and offers reliable customer service. By purchasing from Kimstore, customers can have peace of mind knowing that their new Sony Xperia phone comes with some level of warranty.

This afternoon, I messaged my good friend Kim Lato, the owner of Kimstore, regarding this and she told me that Xperia fans can simply get in touch with them and inquire about the specific model that they want to purchase. Team Kimstore will do their best to source new Xperia handsets for buyers.

Shopee: Choose Trustworthy Gadget Stores

Shopee is a leading e-commerce platform in the Philippines, offering a vast selection of products from various sellers. When it comes to purchasing Sony Xperia phones or any gadget in general, it's essential to choose trusted gadget stores that have been operating on Shopee for a considerable period and have high consumer approval ratings. Look for stores that have consistently positive feedback from customers and are known for their reliability in terms of product quality, shipping, and customer support.

Lazada: Choose Reliable Sellers with High Ratings

Similar to Shopee, Lazada is another popular e-commerce platform in the Philippines. Here, too, it is important to buy from established gadget stores with a good track record. Look for sellers that have been on Lazada for an extended period and have garnered many positive reviews from satisfied customers. High ratings and positive feedback serve as indicators of reliability and help ensure a smooth buying experience.

As a tech enthusiast who once used many Sony Xperia smartphones and who still keeps some in his personal gadget collection, I hope that Sony will someday reconsider selling their new Xperia models in the Philippines. With the country's growing market for handsets, it would be a missed opportunity to not tap into this potential. 

In the meantime, though, Filipino Xperia fans can explore the option of purchasing through online stores, as mentioned in the article. However, it is crucial to exercise caution and choose reputable stores that have established a proven track record of trustworthiness, honesty, and reliability, especially when it comes to delivering excellent after-sales support. By making informed choices, we can continue to enjoy the Xperia experience while eagerly awaiting Sony's return to the Philippine market.
