Ouch, here i was hoping for atleast 600. I can't even afford 600 but 800 damn. Guess i won't have a sony phone till the end of 2015 when my contract ends, christ. I hope US prices go down from that lol

Usually the price in the US is the same as the price in Euros, meaning a 650 euro price ends upat around $650. Would be totally reasonable.

that is not true consumer electronics are generally a bit less expensive in the States, given that EU has VAT. the nexus 5 for instance sells for mere $350 in the states while it will set you back at $400 for the same thing in the UK,

I was hoping for cheaper Z1, but it seem like Sony is adopting term semi-flagship, so that half year old flagship phone becomes vice flagship model, and just go on with the same price, just new model comes with more expensive price tag... It will all come down, to normal prices like 400-450€ for Z2 in just couple months. Still, I am waiting (with LG G2 in my pocket) for Z2 compact model, because this particular one seem just too big, it is in phablet category for God's sake... nevertheless nice phone, just too big...

Sony, please keep it for yourself. Nowadays it seems that the top mobile manufacturers are adopting apple's strategy... less innovation but pricier products.

It's really expensive, I agree but at least Sony and Apple use premium materials and while you hold their phones you can feel the premium feel of it but others use cheap materials and price it like a premium device.

I live in the Netherlands. Price is reasonable. Xperia z1 compact costs here 760 dollar, note 3 800 dollar and iPhone 5S 16 GB 970 dollar. We call the nexus 5 16 GB a bargain at 550 dollar. So the price is normal.

Yes, in European countrys you pay more VAT, andere dont forget that most of the carriers give free phones at a 2 year contract. In the US you pay for the most high end phones $200,- after signing a 2 year contract.

One of the highest end devices made to date, it's going to be expensive.
