Always been the case. Everything is more expensive in Europe. No surprises there.

In Asia, is actually cheaper.
In Malaysia (East Malaysia specifically), the ZL cost RM1899 which is chepaer than the retail price of Galaxy S3 at a Samsung Store which is RM1999.

In the Philippines: XZ is P32,490 (796.7USD). XZL is P29,990 (735.39USD)
I don't know why are the Z/ZL expensive somewhere outside Asia.

Since Sony is an Asian brand.
Also, I'm getting the ZL.
