Sony Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact will be up for pre-order at Best Buy on April 13
Although B&H was the first US retailer to list Sony's new flagships last month, it appears that the Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact are no longer available for pre-order.

The good news is Sony has just announced both phones will be launched in the United States in less than two weeks. The handset maker confirmed the Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact will be available for pre-order only at Best Buy from April 13-19. Moreover, they will go on sale online on April 20, but only Best Buy will have them available.

Sony Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact will be available in-store at Best Buy starting May 6, and through Amazon and other authorized US retailers on May 20. Customers who want either of the two phones will have to come up with $799.99 for the Xperia XZ2 and $649.99 for the Xperia XZ2 Compact.



It's also worth noting the Xperia XZ2 comes in four finishes – Liquid Silver, Liquid Black, Deep Green, and Ash Pink, while Xperia XZ2 Compact is available in White Silver, Black, Moss Green, and Coral Pink. Keep in mind that the Xperia XZ2 Compact is the first device in the XZ series to be Verizon-certified.

As long it has new design or at least the cam / fps placed correctly this time. They're too low.

You can use facial recognition, or use a smart watch to login as well as the option of using fps. It's Android, there is lots of choices.

Please no. The US Sony fans are desperately waiting for the xperia phones. Just stop offering phones to the ridiculously biased and ignorant reviewers.

Finally! $649 is Pixel 2 price for me. I'll wait for a price drop.

I'll have to watch reviews to see if that would change my mind or not.

The Pixel 2 has a lower resolution display, and has major bezels. The iPhone 8 has major bezels as well. This Sony XZ2 and XZ2 compact do not have major bezels. Plus they are both 18:9 aspect ratio. As a matter of fact the XZ2 Compact is physically smaller than an iPhone 8, yet it has a display that is larger than an iPhone 8, and a resolution higher than an iPhone 8 plus. This XZ2 has a SD 845, where as the Pixel 2 has a SD 835. For the extra $50 it's a no brainer, the Sony XZ2 or XZ2 compact is a better buy.

I'm indifferent about bezels actually. That is true but the Pixel 2 has a better point and shoot, which does matter heavily to me. I can wait for it to eventually go on sale for a little less though.

I'm an (almost) proud owner of an Xperia XZ2. I decided to spontaneously replace my already fantastic XZ Premium, because I wanted to try the tall screen and bezel-less trend. As a result I have a phone, which is physically just a tiny bit more manageable than my XZ Premium in the hand, but one with a screen which is actually smaller (it's 5.7" vs 5.5", but because of the narrow, tall ratio, it actually displays content slightly smaller) and one where I can really not reach to pull down the notification bar, which drives me nuts. Now more than ever I am convinced that the bezel-less trend is just nonsense. Other than that the phone is pretty great, but so was my XZ Premium before it, and I miss its thinness, it's perfectly positioned fingerprint scanner and its sharp, industrial design. Don't just follow trends people, sometimes newer may look more modern for a while but is not necessarily better. I think the tech reviewer at also to blame for their single-mindedness.
