Today’s Deal – Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact is as low as $499 on Amazon

Today’s Deal is on the Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact, the company’s 4.6″ Android phone that was launched in September of last year.  The XZ1 Compact is the follow up to the popular Xperia X Compact from 2016 and has some mighty impressive specs for its small size.  Right now on Amazon you can pick up the phone in Midnight Blue for $505, a savings of $94 off the normal price.  If blue isn’t your thing, you can get it in White Silver for a little more, $539.  If  Twilight Pink is your color, you can pick up the XZ1 Compact in that color for just $499.

The  Xperia XZ1 Compact has a 4.6″ full HD display (1920 x 1080) and is powered by the Snapdragon 835 SoC and coupled with the Adreno 540 GPU.  It has 4GB of RAM and has 32GB of storage.  That storage can be expanded up to an additional 256GB thanks to the MicroSD slot.

As for cameras, the Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact follows up last year’s X Compact well.  It has a 19MP rear camera that uses Sony’s SteadyShot for image stabilization.  The front facing camera is an 8MP shooter that has 120° wide-angle to capture the most in your selfies.

The phone is IP68 rated against water and dust intrusion, is charged via the USB-C port and has a 2700mAh battery built-in.  The phone also has a built-in fingerprint scanner but keep in mind, due to legal restrictions, it will not be enabled on the US model.

Sony has already begun rolling out the Android Oreo update for the XZ1 Compact so you will have the latest and greatest version of Android available to you to download as soon as you get the phone shipped to you.

Finally, the Xperia XZ1 Compact being sold is unlocked and will work with GSM carriers here in the US like AT&T and T-Mobile.  Unfortunately for readers who are on CDMA carriers like Verizon and Sprint, this phone won’t work for you.
