Today’s Deal – Sony Xperia XZs Down to $499

Today’s Deal is on the powerful, 5.2″ Sony Xperia XZs.  The XZs is a revamped version of last year’s XZ and has, as you would expect from Sony, some pretty impressive specs.  Today, the XZs has dropped in price down to $499 on Amazon.

The Xperia XZs is powered by the Snapdragon 820 processor clocked at 2.2GHz, has 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.  That storage can be expanded and additional 256GB thanks to the MicroSD slot.  The XZs is IP68 rated against water and dust intrusion and, a not-so-common thing here in the US, it is a dual-SIM phone.  The display is a 5.2″ FHD and all of this is powered by a 2900mAh battery that is charged via a USB-C port and it supports Quick Charge 3.0 technology.

What really makes the XZs however are the cameras.

The rear camera is a 19MP shooter that is capable of, get this, 960fps for super slow motion video.  It stunning and, of course, Sony does a great job on their optics and their camera app for the phone.  The front facing selfie camera is not bad either at 13MP.

The Xperia XZs is being sold unlocked and this is the US version of the phone.  It will work with GSM carriers like AT&T and T-Mobile but unfortunately won’t work with CDMA carriers like Sprint and Verizon.  Here are the frequencies supported:

  • GSM: 850, 900, 1800, 1900
  • HSPA:  800 / 850 / 900 / 1700(AWS) / 1900 / 2100
  • LTE: 1(2100), 2(1900), 3(1800), 4(1700/2100), 5(850), 7(2600), 8(900), 12(700), 13(700), 17(700), 19(800), 20(800), 26(850), 28(700), 29(700), 32(1500), 38(2600), 39(1900), 40(2300), 41(2500)

 

The XZs will ship to you running Android Nougat 7.1 but Sony, like many other manufactures, has an Oreo upgrade in the works for the phone.  That will likely come in early 2018.

Finally, you have your choice of three different colors on the XZs, all are at the $499 price.  You can get it in Black, Ice Blue or Warm Silver.
