In germany, Note7 is (much) more expensive than iPhone 6s and coming iPhone 7. 6s with 64GB in space gray and rose gold cost Â€ 599 at price comparison (other colors cost more)

Price is actually acceptable!!!
Glad I held up and finally gonna upgrade my Z3 Compact that didnt disappoint not to mention doesn't blow up.....
Anonymous, 03 Sep 2016Sony is Quality, and Great performance based cells. Keep it ups!! Not to mention no self detonating feature.

Sony ... moreI wouldn't say it's normal, I bought the Z3 two months after it was out for 470Â€. Plus, anything between 700-900Â€ can get you even better devices like the S7 Edge or Note7, which have great power, battery, and Gorilla glasses among others.. Sony is kinda too expensive since the Z5 :/
Ciro123, 03 Sep 2016S7 no have hi res,no type usb C, no qnovo, no chaegue 3.0, no stereo speakers, no camera pole... moreThe S7 is also better in some ways but I didn't say that the XZ is worse than the S7 I just think that you don't get what you pay for,Because galaxy have destroyed the HTC 10,G5 and Xperia X Performance wich shows how much better is samsung at marketing thier smartphones,Sometimes you can get them for 500$ or get one the other free deal.
Xperia X Compact yes, it should be cheaper, cuz the "mini" version of a device should always be cheaper enough. It's not beastly spec'd for such a price anyway (except for the camera) like Z3 Compact did for example.
It is normal pricing.
I've bought my Z3 with 900$.
And it works very smooth till now.
Sony phones are brilliant.
Nick Paschalidis, 03 Sep 2016I am going for the XZ.It's an amazing looking phone with great features.I will never understan... moreSmart cleaner style apps have been standard on many other oem handsets for a while now, this is Sony playing catch up that's all. And this 'triple sensing' stuff would appear on the face of things to be little more than Sony looking at the set up LG have implemented on the cameras of the Lg G4/G5, V10 etc.and saying 'that looks good, well use it'.
Though their efforts at extending overall battery life span are a great thing to see, this is something other big oems should look to follow Sony's lead on.
While the price of the X Compact is actually pretty fair, Clove have already put out a review of the unit, their summery is that it offers little value over the Z5 Compact and in some ways is actually a regression.
All this said, at that price and my fondness for more phone sized phones, so to speak, I myself actually considering the X Compact.

Bigger, high res, curved screen and extra RAM deserved way higher than a 100$ premium, and samsung charging 800 is way less (obviously when comparing with price to spec ratio of XZ)
