Deal: Sony Xperia X Compact now costs just $299
Officially released in the US in September for $499.99, the Sony Xperia X Compact can now be purchased for $200 off via Best Buy and Amazon. As of this week, both retailers are selling the Xperia X Compact for just $299.99, though Amazon is still listing the Blue version of the handset at $399.99 (the phone's price from November). Free standard shipping and US warranty are included.

While the 4.6-inch 720p display of the Xperia X Compact may make this device too small for many, there are certainly plenty of users out there who wouldn't mind owning such a compact smartphone. At $299, the features of the Xperia X Compact are attractive regardless of its size, including a Snapdragon 650 processor, a 23 MP rear camera, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of expandable internal memory, and up to two days of battery life (under normal use).

Right now, the Sony Xperia X Compact is running Android Marshmallow, but an update to Android 7 Nougat is bound to arrive in the coming months. For the record, Sony already started rolling out Nougat updates for its Xperia X Performance and Xperia XZ.

Is anyone here planning to get the Xperia X Compact now that it's pretty affordable?
