Sony Xperia phones have been popular among music lovers ever since this range of phones was first introduced. Sony music app preloaded on these phones optimizes sound for better experience and minimizes the battery use, but not only that – the app was named after Sony Walkman, an iconic brand synonymous with portable music. This marketing trick worked really well initially, however as the brand’s value was slowly and inevitably diminishing and fewer and fewer buyers were attaching emotional value to the famous Sony music player, the company made another smart move. Last year the company renamed the app to generic ‘Music’, just the way Apple did – if you are old enough, you might remember that once upon the time the music app on iPhones was called ‘iPod’.
