Deal: Sony Xperia XZ drops to just $499 in the US

Not long after Sony dropped the price of its US Xperia XZ to $599, the handset can now be purchased for just $499.99 if you're getting it from Amazon. That's $200 off the original price, and it looks like this may be a permanent price cut, not just a Cyber Monday deal. Update: Unfortunately, this wasn't a permanent price cut.

Amazon is selling the Xperia XZ in three color versions (blue, black, silver), offering free shipping and US warranty with each of them. While the handset works on GSM/LTE carriers like AT&T and T-Mobile, it's certainly not for customers who want to use it on Verizon or Sprint, since it doesn't support CDMA bands.

At $499.99, it's hard to ignore the appeal of the Sony Xperia XZ. The smartphone will soon be updated to Android 7 Nougat, and offers powerful features like a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, a 23 MP rear camera with 4K video recording, and dust- and water-resistance. Before deciding if you want to buy an Xperia XZ, you may want to read our review of it. Our biggest complaint about the phone was its high launch price ($699.99), but that's no longer an issue. So, who's interested in getting an Xperia XZ for just $499?

The fingerprint sensor is there. Just disabled from software for licensing problems or something. If you want to use it, just put UK version of software and you're done. Or Australian if you prefer.

This thing should have used an aluminum frame with a solid gorilla glass front and back, eliminating the need for that ugly window at the bottom. Not that the phone is thick or anything, but considering I it doesn't have a very battery, you'd think it'd be thinner...

I love Microsoft Lumia 950/950 XL, HP Elite X3 and Sony`s flagship smartphones, but, unfortunately, these phones support only GSM, in addition Sony Xperia XZ!!! I need CDMA+GSM smartphone. Because, I am a subscriber of Perfectum in Uzbekistan, which works on CDMA 800 MHz (like Verizon and Sprint) and UMS in Uzbekistan, which works on GSM 900/1800 MHz (like T-Mobile and AT&T) I hope Sony will produce/make CDMA+GSM smartphones like Sony Xperia Z3V for Verizon wireless!!!
