Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact hits a new all-time low price of $450 in time for Christmas

Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact hits a new all-time low price of $450 in time for Christmas
The last good compact smartphone standing after the death of the iPhone SE and Samsung’s line of mini Galaxy S flagships is returning to the spotlight today with a sweet holiday discount.

Released back in April with an arguably excessive $649.99 price tag attached to its name, the Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact was quickly marked down to $600 after already including a $100 Best Buy gift card.

A couple of deeper price cuts followed, but then the 5-incher stabilized at $499.99, with no additional savings offered during last month’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday frenzy. Of course, they say a sequel is right around the corner, so unsurprisingly, B&H Photo Video is now charging $449.99 after an instant $200 holiday markdown.

No promo codes required, no strings attached, no catches, no nothing. You’re free to take this unlocked device and activate it on your GSM network of choice, be it AT&T or T-Mobile, and you can even effortlessly make it work on Verizon with full 4G LTE support.

The $449.99 price is obviously good for a limited time only, but the great news is you can pick one of four color options, ranging from black to “coral pink”, “moss green”, and “white silver.”

Now, the Xperia XZ2 Compact is not exactly what we’d call a modern device, with pretty chunky screen bezels in tow, a single rear-facing camera, and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.

But its relatively small IPS LCD panel is sharp and trendy, with 2160 x 1080 pixel resolution and a 2:1 aspect ratio, while that single shooter mounted on the phone’s back can do spectacular 960 fps Super Slow Motion video recording. 

This is quite a powerful little handset too, packing a Snapdragon 845 processor, 4GB RAM, and 64GB internal storage, with Android 9.0 Pie already running the software show following a timely upgrade from the pre-loaded Oreo build.

Its cheaper to get a used s9, no thanks. Until it gets root its still unbuyable.

Who still roots btw? It breaks your warranty and for Sony it breaks your DRM making Xperia apps featureless. Plus the trouble of getting bugs and compatibility with some apps makes me stay away from rooting.
