Deal: Amazon is now selling the Sony Xperia Z5 at a $100 discount
Although the Sony Xperia Z5 was launched back in late 2015 in most countries around the world, the last iteration in the Sony Xperia Z series took its sweet time to land in the US. By February 2016 when Sony launched the Xperia Z5 in the US, the handset had already lost some of its appeal. As such, it was surprising to see Sony pricing the device at $599.99, and perhaps even more surprising to see the handset maintaining its original price so far into 2016.
At $499.99, the Sony Xperia Z5 is a decent smartphone, although many will still find the price to be a bit on the steep side. The hardware specifications include a 5.2-inch display with a resolution of 1080 by 1920 pixels, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset with 3GB of RAM, 32GB of microSD-expandable internal storage, a 23MP primary camera, a 5MP secondary shooter, and a 2900mAh battery. On the software side, the Sony Xperia Z5 launched with Android 5.1 Lollipop on board, but the handset has since been updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

What do you guys think, is the Sony Xperia Z5 worth a cent under $500 now that devices such as the Samsung Galaxy S7 or the HTC 10 offer much more smartphone at an only slightly higher price?
