A good phone for the right person.
Back in April, Sony launched the Xperia XZs. The XZs first hit virtual store shelves with a steep price tag of $700, and when you combined that with the XZ Premium that made it obsolete just a couple months later, the XZs became a pretty tough sell. However, with a new discount on the phone currently available through Amazon, it might actually be worth checking out now.
The XZs’s retail price previously went down from $699 to $599, but right now on Amazon, you can purchase the phone for just $399. For that price, you’ll be getting a phone with a 5.2-inch 1080p display with curved 2.5D Gorilla Glass 4, 3.5mm headphone jack with a High-Res DSEE-HX LDAC, 64GB of expandable storage (up to 256GB), 4GB RAM, dual-SIM support, and a 19MP rear camera that lets you record super slow-motion 960 FPS videos.
Sony originally shipped the XZs with Android Nougat, but the phone was updated to 8.0 Oreo in late November. In addition to all of the goodies Oreo brings by default, the update also introduced Xperia Actions and Reminders.
The battery on the XZs isn’t the largest (2,900 mAh) and the processor isn’t the newest (Snapdragon 820), but even so, it’s still a compelling buy for the right person at $399.
