Sony Z Ultra Google Play edition gets $200 price drop to $449

Sony Z Ultra Google Play editionGoogle has knocked over 30% off the price of the Sony Z Ultra Google Play edition, moving the price of the handset from $649 to $449, with free shipping in the US. The $200 price cut perhaps shows that the handset has not sold as well, the 6.4-inch display size no doubt putting some off due to sheer size. There’s nothing to suggest that this is a limited promotion, it looks like this is the new price of the Sony Z Ultra going forward, a great price for those that may have been interested in the handset.

    I wouldn’t say so much that it is not selling well; but that they are just updating the price to be more accurate. $449 is the price the Z Ultra is selling on amazon and the like, so it’s honestly about time they DID come down to match the going rate.

    This has the S800 doesn’t it? still probably a fantastic phone for that price

    They are selling the Xperia Edition everywhere on Spain for 350€. Bought mine a couple of months ago for 379€.

    My guess is that it has been a failure on the sales department, so that’s why they’re clearing the shelves. People are afraid of the size for it to be a million seller and it is understable. The phone is old too, so it is only natural for it to be at a discounted price.

    Yep, it has nearly the same specs as the Galaxy Note 3 (-1GB RAM), and much better reviews overall, for about ~$150 cheaper. Great deal I say!

    I may just grab one of these now

    449? might be cheaper on eBay or Amazon then. but What is the difference between the GP Edition and the Xperia Z Ultra? is it Wi-Fi only, 3G, 4G, LTE with or without voice support?

    B&H is selling Sony SBH52 bluetooth headset for $64.24 – which is the lowest I have seen so far from an authorized Sony retailer – excellent accessory for a phablet like XZU

    GPE Hardware is identical to Sony Z Ultra LTE US version (c6806 – the most expensive version in the US). Both are phones with identical 3G/LTE bands. The only difference is GPE runs vanilla android as opposed to Sony’s UI. And you can flash Sony ROM to GPE version as well. Even though you’ll receive much faster updates on GPE software. At this price, this is actually a steal.

    Well, it is getting old… this is the same generation as the Z, Tablet Z already. Time for a Z1 or Z2 refresh. This reflects the price it has been sold here in the PH for a while now.

    It is the same generation as Z1.

    yeah, but vanilla android is not really optimized for the larger screen. SD card support is also not as advanced as the standard Z Ultra, iirc

  • Paul M

    this is quite a bargain!

    if I had been sitting on the fence for one of these, it would be enough to sway me.
