Deal: Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium no longer costs $1,000 in the US
Released stateside at the end of July, the Xperia XZ2 Premium is one of Sony's most expensive smartphones to date, costing $1,000 minus 1 cent. For a limited time, though, a couple of US retailers are selling the XZ2 Premium for $899.99, thus letting you save $100 on it.

The two retailers that are currently offering the Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium at $100 off are B&H Photo Video and Focus Camera - here and here. Both allow you to purchase the handset in either black or silver. B&H says that this deal is valid only until November 3, while Focus Camera doesn't mention when the offer expires. Meanwhile, bigger retailers like Amazon and Best Buy are still asking $999.99 for this Sony phone.

The Xperia XZ2 Premium has some key features that arguably justify its high price. For example, the device sports a 5.8-inch display with 2160 x 3840 pixels (that's 4K), while packing 6 GB of RAM, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, and a dual rear camera capable of shooting super-slow-motion video at 960 fps. The handset runs Android 8 Oreo, but an official update to Android 9 Pie is expected to be rolled out in November. Our Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium review should help you decide if the phone is worth its current price.

P.S.: The Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium is unlocked and compatible only with T-Mobile and AT&T (including their prepaid brands). In other words, the device will not work on Verizon, Sprint, or US Cellular.

The best android phone I ever had was the Z3 and then the Z5P was ok, but I'm not spending what they're asking for ever again. By the time they're in the price range I would pay I could find a deal on a newer device. They are good phones though.

Agree. I am so glad to have my XZ Premium at 8.400.000 rupiah (approx $620) in July 2017. Phone after iPhone X is merely untouchable. iPhone X is really a disaster to smartphone world.

Good phone with a great camera that can't make this site best of 2018 camera phones yet its beats most on the list. You tech sites need to bring truth and stop selling out to popularity and the dollar.

You can get a phone with better screen, larger battery, a headphone jack and a smaller footprint for half the price.
