Greatest pre-order gift ever? Austrian telecom bundles free PS4 Slim with Xperia XZ Premium

If you thought Samsung offered some great pre-order gifts for the Galaxy S8, you'll be amazed at what Sony is giving away for early adopters of the Xperia XZ Premium

The company's e-stores in Europe recently started taking orders for the 2017 Sony flagship, bundling a set of premium headphones to people who reserve their unit before May 31st.
 
Apparently, high-end headphones are not a cool enough gift for Austria's "3" telecom, so the carrier's pre-order bonus for the XZ Premium is a free Playstation 4 Slim. This is the white 500GB version of the console we're talking about, with a controller of the same color also included in the mix. 

This is by far one of the most enticing early adopter deals we've seen to date, and we sure hope that Sony or some US carriers would consider offering similar incentives when the handset eventually becomes available Stateside.

As a reminder, the XZ Premium is one of the hottest Android flagships for 2017, which is further evidenced by the fact that it won the "Best New Smartphone" award at MWC 2017. Although the large bezels on the phone look a bit passé after the announcements of the LG G6 and Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+, the handset certainly makes up for it in the hardware department. It features the powerful Snapdragon 835 chipset, a 5.5-inch 4K HDR display, and a new 19 MP main camera that can shoot super slow motion videos at 960 fps.

And yet, no one buys Sony phones, even when they're much cheaper.

Sony phones​ are not "much cheaper". In fact Sony's margins are higher on their phones BECAUSE they don't produce low-end garbage, something that cannot be said in favor of Sammy. Not saying the Xperia is better than the S8 (that's dumb) but it most certainly isn't "much cheaper" and neither is the rest of their lineup when compared to Samsung.

If you've never bought Sony phones that doesn't mean that no one else will buy them. Remove your s-blind fold and open your eyes.

Actually I just cancelled my xz premium order because of the crappy camera. Especially in lowlight, the xz premium sucks bigtime.

People buy Samsung over Sony for the same reason why iOS fans are so loyal. It's blind loyalty.

I disagree, people buy Samsung over Sony because Samsung usually offers the better hardware (and software features too) for the same price of a Sony flagship.

Nothing blind in choosing a better phone.

Well according to the reviews of both devices the Galaxy S8 is coming out as the more favourable one.

So you definetly in denial.

@phonehex I never bought a Z5 Premium dumbass. And even if I would I'd be happy to get it more than any Samesung's crappy products. Think before you assume anything from your ass.

@Plasticsh1t Now i get it , you're just a jealous person... must've purchased a Sony phone 3 years ago and you're "protecting" your sh*tty investment by brainfart comments. Go sleep with your Z4 Premium .

@phonehex you're still assuming like a dumbass. Guess there is no use arguing with s-tards.

nobody would buy even if they bundle a house.

Sony is no longer relevant in smartphone business.
