Last week we talked to Sony Mobile Brazil Marketing Director Ana Peretti, who commented on how complaints are handled within the company. According to her, there is a great deal of concern about consumer experience with branded products. The company has a process aligned between the marketing and after-sales teams that monitor customer complaints on various channels, such as Complain Here, PROCON, social networks and physical stores. With respect to waterproof device infiltration testing, Sony performs all necessary testing in Brazil, centralizing procedures between two advanced repair centers that are Sony partners. In this case, Sony service acts only as a collection point and does not repair the device on site.

Like the list released by PROCON, Sony also does not state the reasons for these complaints against their smartphones or tablets. During the last two semesters of last year, Samsung ranked first in the PROCON ranking with 571 complaints, followed by Motorola (297 complaints) which remained in second place. You can see the 2014 list here, and the first half of 2015 here.
