wpid-wp-1404857652552.jpegThe Sony Xperia Z1 Compact has unexpectedly gone on sale in the United States. All three colours of the handset (black, pink and white) are in stock via the Sony Store. Only the unlocked version is available,  costing $549.99. The model on sale is the international D5503 model,  supporting LTE bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 20. It was thought that Sony may not launch the Xperia Z1 Compact in the US,  so it’s great to see it make an appearance.


Thanks Greg!

    wow! wait…. Is that too late?

  • Dupel

    Too late and too expensive considering it’s an old smartphone! We are waiting for Z3 compact :D

  • Mohammed Khired

    it’s cheaper in saudi arabia….

  • bluestreak_v

    It’s already available from Amazon.com and cheaper at $430 USD


    I find it amusing every time someone suggest waiting for the Z3. If you do indeed wait for the Z3, the Z4 will be on deck ready for release! Hence, you will never purchase a new phone with that mind set.

    It’s weird that the phone is available on sony store. But it doesn’t show up on sonymobile US website.

    What’s the purpose in buying a 7 month old device when a next one is supposed to make official appearance in a months time? Better wait than buying an old device and then selling it to buy a new one.

    But in the end you don’t get anything. Trust me. The key is to be content. Not to be on the edge every time. Plus the tech is already reaching the plateau so the next iteration is not that bigger of a jump.

  • ama

    True, though unfortunately the ones presently available through sellers on Amazon and elsewhere are often imported from other countries and thus lack official US warranty support.

  • Bachelor

    So you are going to wait at least 9 months more?…

    no yellow? no thanks.


    You aren’t seeing my point. The Z3 will not be available in the US until it’s about time for the Z4’s foreign debut.

    So just get an un-US-official phone from other side of the world. Using an old phone with a new phone’s price? NOWAY!

    This isnt our fault. we are the customers, Sony should treat us better.

    missing band 17 lte for att means a no buy for me.


    If you are in the US than it is new! Also, buying out-of- country can present it’s own set of problems.

  • Dupel

    will you prefer buying it at this price when you can get for $350-$400 from some other country?
