Sony Xperia Z price revealed

Sony Xperia Z price revealed
The Sony Xperia Z is a water and dust resistant cream of the crop smartphone that still manages to deliver outstanding design, and while we knew almost everything about, one thing remained a mystery - its price. Now, UK retailer Clove has finally shed light on the Xperia Z price and it will be £440 with no value-added tax and £528 with VAT included.

That’s roughly in line with the price of the Samsung Galaxy Note II at the carrier, so if we were to judge by this similarity, the Xperia Z should carry a similar price to the new Note in the States and Europe as well.

The release date is once again confirmed to be March 1st, and then you’d be able to purchase a black or white Xperia Z.

If you still haven’t caught up with news, make sure to check out our Xperia Z hands-on and here is a quick rundown of Sony’s new Android flagship:

  • 5” 1080 x 1920 full HD Reality Display with Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2
  • 13 MP Exmor RS rear camera, 2.2 megapixel front camera
  • Dust and water resistant (IP55 & IP57) with a durable glass display
  • Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core 1.5GHz processor
  • 16GB internal memory, expandable via microSD
  • 2GB RAM
  • 4G LTE support

This is what the fuss is all about? This phone is hardly better than what's currently already out. Sony fanboys suddenly appeared out of no where.

What do you mean Sony fanboys suddenly appeared out of no where? I like this phone, at least from the presentation from Sony's website. I don't believe myself to be a fanboy of any manufacturer, even though I was a Motorola fan until my first treo which had palm OS. IMO Sony phones weren't cutting it until this Z. That's clearly not something a fanboy would say.

I have to say this is my favorite designed phablet.. I know looks are subjective but after feeling the note 2 (which is amazing hardware inside) this doesn't look nearly as cheap.. I'll say it again... Sammy needs to fire their designers and hire some from Sony. I'm VERY excited for this phone..

Apple flirted with glass and they gave it up. The consensus was that the glass is not the ultimate material for an outer shell. Now sony must learn that too.

I thought it was a little more expensive than I was hoping, but I've just realised that it's the same price as the cheapest iPhone 5. When looking what you get with the Xperia Z compared to the iPhone 5 for the same price it's a bargain!

I just love this phone's tight chassis. When it gets hot just drop it into a bucket of water! Problem solved.

Usually they are water resistant, as in splashing, rain, etc... Not submersible. Would be cool though.
