Best Buy can even go 50 bucks lower if you agree to activate the GSM unlocked Sony Xperia XZ3 on AT&T right off the bat, while Focus Camera throws in a whole bunch of charging goodies at no extra cost, including a 4,000 mAh power bank, 10W Qi wireless charging pad, dual USB car charger, and a 6 feet USB-C to USB-A cable.

Speaking of freebies, Amazon also sells the XZ3 at a decent $200 discount bundled with a gratis Xperia Ear Duo wireless stereo headset. The somewhat quirky gift, which lets you enjoy your music, make hands-free calls, listen to your schedule, news, and forecasts while simultaneously hearing surrounding noise, is typically available for around $200 on its own, adding to the massive aforementioned savings.

Granted, the phone doesn't exactly look like a "modern" high-ender, with a 2:1 screen and relatively thick bezels, but that 6-inch OLED beaut delivers 2880 x 1440 resolution and top-notch HDR support. You also get a powerful Snapdragon 845 processor, water-resistant build, wireless charging capabilities, and two excellent front-firing speakers at a reasonable price.
