Sony Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact prices revealed

Sony Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact prices revealed
For the first time in a long while, it seems that Sony is trying to make great smartphones. The new Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact (see their full specs here) come with an elegant new design that brings Sony on equal footing with the Samsungs and Apples of this world, but what about the price of Sony's new phones?

The company has not yet officially unveiled US prices for the XZ2 and the XZ2 Compact, but it has now published the prices for the phones for Germany and we can learn a lot from that information.

The Sony Xperia XZ2 price in Germany is set at €800, a full €100 more than the original price of last year's XZ1, so we can expect a similar price increase in the US. This means that we can expect a $800 price for the unlocked XZ2 version in the United States, if Sony decides to release the phone stateside.

Then, the Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact price in Germany is revealed to be €600, on par with last year's price of the phone. So in this case, we should not expect a price bump for the XZ2 Compact and it should cost the same $600 for an unlocked XZ2 Compact model, the same as the original price for last year's XZ1 Compact.

The release date for both phones is set for the second quarter of 2018, and knowing corporate speak, this likely means that the phones will be released sometime towards the end of Q2 2018, likely in June.

*Assumed prices for unlocked models based on Sony's officially revealed prices in Europe.

Why? Why buy same thing every year? Don't you like to use something different for a change... Frankly I'm so tempted by this XZ2. When I look at the S9/S9+ I get really bored. That age old Samsung UI, same looking camera photos, same design curves.....lol

Yes bad. Sony are out of touch and even though they’re asking less for it than the S9, they still don’t have a scoobydoo what the consumer wants or needs.

I am honestly tempted to get the Compact. Packs a lot of hardware for that price point.

First hand impressions for me are definitely in favor of the larger XZ2. Great phone.

It is really one of a kind in general. The XZ1 Compact almost made me consider giving up my SE.

Considering the XZ2 compact is physically smaller than an iPhone 8/7/6s/6. Yet the XZ2 has a larger 5" display, with a resolution (2160x1080) greater than the iPhone 8/7/6s/6 plus. Not to mention the XZ2 is giving you more features for less money.

My problem with the XZ2 (non compact) is the size. I want and prefer the Compact if I will be using a Sony phone.

Then you didn't give up??! You have missed a lot of things buddy or maybe not if you are considering the xz2 compact.

Yes I didn't. Everything was really good for the XZ1 compact but the camera fell really short in low light so my SE remained. I'll probably consider trying the XZ2 Compact.

People are looking for a change. That's why most android users get tempted by this year's Nokia and Sony offerings. I'm looking for the Nokia 7 plus and Sony XZ2.

Exactly. Who wants a s9 that will have apps you cannot remove and will stutter at times when it should be smooth as butter?
