Sony Xperia XZ1 is already $50 cheaper in the US

It's not often that a flagship smartphone gets a price cutshortly after its official launch, and yet this is exactly what happened withthe Sony Xperia XZ1. Available in the US since a few weeks ago, theXperia XZ1 can now be bought starting at $649 - $50 off its $699 launchprice.  


This lower price makes the Sony Xperia XZ1 only $50 moreexpensive than the smaller (but still powerful) Xperia XZ1 Compact, which wasreleased last week for $599.


At the moment, only the black and blue versions of theXperia XZ1 are offered for $649. If you want to get the handset in pink orsilver, you still have to pay the full $699 price. You can find all four color variants at Amazon, Sony's official USdistribution channel for the XZ1 - see the source link below.


At launch, the Sony Xperia XZ1 was the world's first smartphoneto run Android 8 Oreo out of the box. That aside, the handset is notable for offeringa 19 MP rear camera with super-slow-motion video recording (920 fps), alongsideplenty of other high-end features.

Yes, bezels, but also stereo speakers, 3.5mm headphone jack and Digital Noise Cancellation. Also Oreo out of the box. Not everyone wants an S8 without Digital Noise Cancellation and Oreo update in 2018. Yes, I'm also not extremely happy with the bezels of Sony flagships but I don't care to sacrifice important features just to have a bezeless design (which ultimately doesn't even have any particular practical advantages; some bezel is good to actually hold that thing and keep you from straining your thumb).

This. I'm indifferent about the bezels.
