Sony Xperia XZ now available in the United States

by XB on 2nd October 2016

in Xperia X series


sony-xperia-xzA quick heads-up to let our US readers know that the Sony Xperia XZ is now available to buy. The handset has a recommended price of $699.99 and is available through Amazon.com, although strangely the Forest Blue colour option has gone AWOL. Only the Platinum and Mineral Black options are live. We’re not why Amazon has removed the option, but we understand the option is still available at Best Buy in store (the website does not list the Xperia XZ right now). So who’s picked a handset up in the USA? Let us know in the comments below.

    700 USD? Its cheap.. Buy on Brazil for 1200 :/

    I’d go nuts on this phone if the camera’s performance could line up with the best out there.
    I’m not saying it has not improved through the years, and this one delivers fairly impressive results.
    But with the bundle of sensors on the back, I expected white balance accuracy and noise/detail performance as good as the S7 and iPhone 7.
    While white balance could be personal preference on accuracy versus pleasing to the eye, I’m 100% certain Sony is still behind on neatly reducing noise while maintaining good amount of detail.

    Gotta wait to see what’s in store at Google’s event on the 4th. If it doesn’t live up to hype, then I’ll get the XZ

  • Sid

    Just to let you know it is $50 less when you click proceed to checkout it comes down to $649.99.

    Nice!

  • Roland Hamid

    I’m looking for the 64gb

  • Marinko Agic

    It is than Xperia XZ duo…

  • jag

    Sorry to say but I’m not loving the XZ’s design. I went to a Sony shop last saturday and found the demos there but did not find them interesting. Or is it just because they are just demo phones?? I’m disappointed to be honest.

  • Bezels for the win !

    ”100% certain Sony is still behind on neatly reducing noise while maintaining good amount of detail.”

    they could reduce the noise , they just don’t want .

    same camera sensors , same lens and both SONY phones :

    ( difference is most apparent on the color chart http://prnt.sc/cm1yy3 )

    although SunGArena is not to be trusted :D

  • Paskis

    Meanwhile in Australia we can’t even get a release date out of Sony.

  • Saeed

    XZ available for MAA!?

  • Bashar Shehab

    It’s because they are demos, believe me the is a significant difference between demos and the original phone design.

  • Jer

    Fellow Aussie here, i don’t even want the Aussie version, i want a Hybrid Sim model (Dual sim) because sony is shit with moving apps onto the SD card, would rather a 64GB internal phone, lots of dramas with their previous phones with apps on SD cards.

  • Matt

    as far as phone camera go , xz is one of the best.

    well its a bit noisy , its the cure of high pixel count, nothing can be done there. i mean 23 mpx vs 12 mpx.

    again its a phone camera. if thats really important and absolutely a dealbraker for you , then steer away from sony just because it is just a bit noisy.

    for me ill get nexus or pixel phone next time, just because i care of the software alot more . camera is utterly unimportant for me .

  • peltruquin

    Can’t find the Xperia XZ dual on Amazon, cri cri :(

  • iia3ezu

    I’d go nuts on this phone if the camera’s performance could line up with the best out there.

    Don’t worry, it won’t.

  • iia3ezu

    Is it a norm to buy phones through Amazon?

    I thought the first line of retail is through telcos, and accompanying plans for subsidized phones.

    Or is this just a Sony thing?

  • iia3ezu

    How different are demo units displayed at a shop from actual retail units? The phone is feature complete and officially released,

  • aseuss

    It’s as if Sony wants Xperia XZ to fail. Not only is it getting zero carrier support, but it’s being sold at an exorbitant price ($700!)–WITHOUT the fingerprint sensor (which is available everywhere outside the US). And without any marketing or promotion, the general public isn’t even going to know the XZ (or any Xperia phone) even exists. Those who do find out about the XZ aren’t going to take a $700 chance, full-price out-of-pocket, on a brand with zero visibility in the smartphone space.

  • Raj Singh

    Why the fuck would anyone buy a phone that has a disabled fingerprint scanner?

  • Taquidi

    It’s a non-US thing. In Brazil, monthly plans for subsidized phones are expensive, and you only get a little discount on the phone’s full-price. It’s only worth it if you spend about or more than $90-100 monthly on phone bill. So the vast majority of phones sold in Brazil are telecom-free, people buy it and use with the plan they want (the pre-paid plans are by far the most used ones).

  • jag

    I hope so too. Because the one that I got my hands on with is like a toy. It gave me 2nd thoughts about wanting it.

  • Bashar Shehab

    Last year when the LG G4 and Galaxy S6 went to stores I went to check them out and they gave me a demo at first, there is no comparison, the demos are like dolls or toys or anything you want that is shit, nothing like the real unit, and I believe that’s the same deal with Sony demos too. Because since then I never touched a demo so that I won’t get tricked by them.

  • Evang3los

    Does any one know if you can flash a different countries firmware to get finger print?

  • Mac

    Actually I would have to stand behind you on this. Is it supposed to save an app on the internal after every update so I have to move it back to SD every time?
    Also, Spotify offline lists are supposed to be located on the best option but it have been placed on the internal too many times now.

  • Mac

    I don’t understand Sony sometimes.. I mean, telling everybody they don’t focus on the US market. Then they release this flagship there before everywhere else!?
    Well, at least the fanboys overthere finally can keep up.
    Patiently waiting for a irl experience here in Sweden before making any decisions.

  • Chris

    Anyone planning to get this phone to use on T-Mobile?

  • ayesha

    Xperia xz is such a cool device but i recently noticed that Nomu S20 is such competitive with xperia xz as it is also verified water resistance and dust proof smartphone
