Deal: Unlocked Sony Xperia X Compact now costs $399
A bit over a month after being officially released in the US, the Sony Xperia X Compact can now be purchased for just $399.99, free shipping and US warranty included. That's $100 off the phone's launch price ($499.99).

Both Amazon and Best Buy are currently offering the Xperia X Compact for $399.99, in three color versions: black, blue, and white. We'd say that this new price is much more suited for the Xperia X Compact - which is not a bad phone by any means, but its initial price probably didn't convince too many customers to buy it.

With its 4.6-inch 720p display, the Sony Xperia X Compact is a rare sight in today's Android landscape, as most handsets now have screens of around 5 inches or more. The X Compact is not as powerful as its larger brother (Xperia XZ), and it's also not water resistant. Nevertheless, it's a well-designed phone with decent features, plus a long-lasting battery, so you should seriously consider getting it if you don't like larger phones.

Finally, someone with reasoning in sony management did the right thing. Just keep your prices reasonable and you'll get back to your glorious days.

I don't know... With those specs I would prefer a z5 compact

Yeah, it was like the Z3C was a complete upgrade over the Z1C, metal frame being the only legitimate argument. The Z5C was mostly upgrades, but some regressions. This thing on the other hand is sort of a fail in my opinion.

For 399.00 you can get OP3, Axon 7, and Mi5s all of which are far superior to this device.

All of which are also > 5" so it's not a fair comparison.

This right here! Thank you. Mi5 doesn't have the bands I need on T-Mo so nope to that, and the other two are too big for me.I have an Honor 8 that I wished it was just a bit smaller most of the time. I jumped on this because I didn't know how long this will last. This finally feels like the right size for my hand.

These phones probably weren't flying off the shelves. I'm really puzzled why Sony decided to cripple their compact series. Cut the price by another 100 and I might be interested.

I am sure you can get the phone for an additional $100 off somewhere on the internet.

I have tried to look around, you can't. Even used can take it down to $340 at the least when I last looked.
