Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium starts shipping in the US, still terribly overpriced
Of course, that’s only part of the problem, as the Xperia XZ2 Premium is also wildly overpriced in the US, arriving in stores nationwide mere months after the “regular” XZ2, with an even higher-end Xperia XZ3 reportedly around the corner as well.
The 5.8-inch Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium shines in the screen resolution department, playing 4K content in perfect quality, but that doesn’t make it an easier sell at a recommended price point of $999.99. Formally unveiled back in April, the Snapdragon 845 powerhouse was up for pre-order stateside for the past few weeks, and is now speedily shipping from both Amazon and Best Buy.
The former retailer has just the “Chrome Black” version available at the time of this writing, while Best Buy can hook you up with either that or a “Chrome Silver” Xperia XZ2 Premium model. No matter which of the two you end up choosing, you’ll need to cough up that bonkers $1,000, no special gifts or deal sweeteners of any sort included.
You’ll get a valid US warranty, as well as unlocked LTE support for GSM networks like AT&T and T-Mobile. No Verizon or Sprint compatibility, unfortunately, and the 64GB internal storage space is hardly impressive, considering the exorbitant retail costs. On the bright side, the 3840 x 2160 display is truly something, even though it sticks to an outdated 16:9 aspect ratio, and it’s also hard to rival a dual 19 + 12MP rear camera setup supporting 960fps Super Slow-Motion video recording in Full HD.
