[deleted post]People in UK are not that cheap. They are however very image conscious, so many people have iphones and those are not cheap.
We are all being squeezed (except the people at the top and bankers) in terms of our disposable income (I for one have been on the same salary since 2009 - and inflation has been at around 4-5% for most of those years until recently it dropped to 2.7%). I have always been a savvy spender/saver but now I have to be even more savvy with my money. This is how things will be for the foreseeable future.
Sony must be over ambitious pricing this phone so high. Even I wanna buy this but not at this price! I'd rather use my SGS 3 for a few more months and wait to see what the S4 or HTC have to offer. Good luck with your sales numbers Sony!!!
BB z10, htc butterfly, lg optimus cheaper with at least same spec. sony is crazy
In Belgium we have a confirmd price of €649 VAT included and the device will be available by week 10
oh my g... sony has not learn yet their lesson, still arrog..t, they still think sony is the best.
Its worthy to buy this guys, CAN any of IOS or Android be brought when you go on outting and have a splash seaside without worrying of your handset to be soaked to water? no one else does like SONY do.. so you can capture every moments worry free... go ahead indulge
lol goodluck with that price when sgs4 is just around the corner and that phone will smoke everyone.
Talstay, 01 Feb 2013Why should I buy?? Honestly,the price is too high...Don't worry Mate I tell you wait out till August-September the price will definitely come down to somewhere £350 as it is with any other SONY flagship.
rafe firmani, 01 Feb 2013And why not? S3 also a premium handset Bluntly speaking, it's not because SXZ is premium ha... moreand the worse part well more of a habit is that SONY releasing every high end device with older Android Version which kinda SUCKS I mean really what's wrong with releasing something with LATEST ANDROID VERSION?
ollyb1, 01 Feb 2013well i rather pay that amount for the xperia Z than pay that for the iphoneofcoures everyone should I mocked APPLE for their ripoff prices and same I'm saying for SONY not in a bad way but to be honest SONY should think about it they price every device crazy high and when after few months it drops way too much which is very disappointing for buyers I saved every £ to buy T and after only 1 month the product dropped £130 (*Sim-free) this is really disappointing we pay premium only to figure the product not going to sustain its price for more than a month or so. Why not price somewhere around ☼6400-ish even if it drops one wouldn't feel ripped :(
Android Man, 01 Feb 2013this looks awesome phone. and it will sell very well for sony. making them a lot of money. but... moreAnd why not? S3 also a premium handset
Bluntly speaking, it's not because SXZ is premium handset, but because SXZ is Sony it wouldn't sell well!
Clearly they don't have selling power like Samsung.
And the steepier price for many people too!
a very competitive price but too steep .. sony prices tend to fall very soon. apple makes premium quality handsets hence the price is justified. hope sony xperia z and live upto the standard expected.
best of luck sony.. m looking forward to buy this one.
Anonymous, 01 Feb 2013nexus 4 ahahh, that useless POS, and two of it?
By the way, Nexus 4 doesnt cost much less ... moreStock for Nexus 4 just got released for UK two days ago! :P Still stock left :P
But I couldn't order the bumper, all sold out so quick.
Android Man, 01 Feb 2013this looks awesome phone. and it will sell very well for sony. making them a lot of money. but... moreI am sure when S3 was launched it had a sim-free price of near what the Xperia Z is now! Give it a couple of months and the sim-free price will drop not to mention the two year price plans to drop as well!
