Today over at Amazon, the Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact is down to $359, the lowest price the 4.6″ phone has seen and some $240 off its launch price of $599.  The XZ1 Compact was released last year by Sony and is a solid option for those who are looking for an Android Oreo powered device that has a small form factor.

To this point, the lowest price had been $399 which was back in March.  At $399, it is a great value for what you are getting in a phone.  At another $40 off, it is something to seriously consider.

Today’s Deal – Sony Xperia XA1 Down to $180 on Amazon, Normally $299

The solid mid-range phone from Sony, the Sony Xperia XA1, is now on sale at Amazon for a pretty stunning price.  Right now you can pick up the XA1 in black for just $180.  That is a savings of $119 off the normal $299 price, or 40% off depending on how you want to look at it.  The best part is, this is the US warranty backed variant of the phone, not the International version that often goes on sale at Amazon.

The Sony Xperia XA1 made its debut in May of last year and earlier this year it, along with most of the rest of the Sony 2017 phone lineup, was updated to Android Oreo.  Sony, for their part, does a pretty solid job of getting updates out to their various phones.
