Deal: Sony Xperia XZ (US variant) now costs $399

If you only have $400 to spend on a high-end unlocked smartphone, perhaps you'll want to know that Sony's Xperia XZ now costs $399.99 - brand new - at Amazon and Best Buy. We're talking about the official US variant of the phone, which obviously comes with warranty (unlike the international model).

$399.99 is the lowest price of the US Xperia XZ we've seen thus far, and Amazon is even adding a 64 GB microSD card for free. As a reminder, the handset was initially released for $699.99 in the US (back in October), so it's not among Sony's newest devices. Nevertheless, the XZ still has a lot to offer for $399, including a water-resistant aluminum body, and a Snapdragon 820 processor. The smartphone currently runs Android 7 Nougat, but it will be updated to Android 8 Oreo. You can find out more about the handset from our Sony Xperia XZ review.

Meanwhile, the slightly superior Xperia XZs costs at least $550 in the US, while the even newer and better Xperia XZ1 will be released in the second half of the month for $699. So, if you want to get yourself an Xperia XZ for just $399.99, go ahead and visit Amazon and Best Buy via the source links below.

Damn Sony, a little too late. A good phone, yes, but you've diluted your own product line to the point where there is little interest left. I was a huge Sony fan, but now their phones are barely a blip on my radar. Come BIG or don't come at all. It's time for a change. Do it SONY!

I agree with you here... though it is still a great phone... I bought it expecting disappointment and was surprised.... But yeah, the next one should have AT LEAST smaller bezels....
