Pre-order the Sony Xperia XZs and get a free Sony SRS-XB30 speaker

We learned last week that Sony's flagship smartphone, the Xperia XZ Premium won't hit the shelves until early June. But that's not the only appealing high-end device announced by Sony at MWC 2017.

The Xperia XZs has been a bit overshadowed by its bigger Xperia XZ Premium brother, one of the few smartphones that were confirmed to pack Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 processor inside.

Well, the situation must change since the Xperia XZs will make its debut on the market much earlier than the Xperia XZ Premium. The smartphone is already available for pre-order in select markets across Europe.

Moreover, customers who pre-order the Xperia XZs for €649 will also receive a free Sony SRS-XB30 speaker worth €169. The deal is available until April 2, so we can safely assume the smartphone will begin shipping after that date.

Sony will run this promotional offer in Germany, Italy, and the Netherlands, but for now, the deal is only available to Dutch customers. The phone hasn't reached UK retailers yet, but that might change in the coming weeks.

The thing that bothers me is the display. It's only a 5.2" 1920x1080 resolution display. The 960 fps camera seems okay. Have to try it out. But I am more interested in the xz premium with that 4k hdr display.

Coming from a Z3C... the thing that entices me the most is the display... for my needs is just perfect... 4K is overkill (no hardcore VR plans here)... and the size is ok... A better s-t-b ratio would be great of course, but it is no deciding factor for me.. What I would like to know is if the digitizer survives when the screen is cracked... because if this is like the previous Z1, Z3, etc broken screen means unusable phone... and THAT is no go for me.

I am more interested having xz premium with 23mp camera, its 960fps.

Both are 19 MP and both shoot slow-motion video at 960fps.

But the 960fps is LESS than .2 (< 2-TENTHS) of a second ... thus very "limited" use. I bet it took them 100 attempts to get the video-samples. I am mixed right now because I am also intrigued by the 6.2" S8+. I do like the XZ's front-stereo speakers so I am going to see how "loud" the speakers are on the S8+ before I make a final decision.

To be fair, videos will still be over 20 seconds long so it makes sense. It would take FAR too much memory to do any longer.

If only they design this as a 1080p HDR panel, i think it will be a best seller compared to the standard XZ. But the way it stands, i don't think the camera alone + 1 Gig of RAM is worth a new phone.

Same thoughts here.. Should have improved the screen.. QHD maybe.. But I heard that the availability of this phone will be limited.. so I think.. Sony knows that it's not gonna sell much, maybe they don't want it to sell much.. Maybe this phone is for those who didn't buy an Xperia XZ, and won't buy an XZ Premium...
