$800 to get an Android phone? No wonder both HTC and Sony are losing the battle to Samsung.
I always like phone companies who sell unlocked phones, Google, apple, Sony. hate phone providers monopoly every phones.
But with this price, goodbye Sony you lose a customer.
A contract-free SONY Xperia ZL here in Malaysia is JUST US$548. LOL..Sony is good to Asians. I just wish they lower the price elsewhere :)
I'm soooo happy that i bought this phone instead of Xperia Z. This is really compact compared to ANY 5inch phones. The bezels are really thin. It's truly an "edge-to-edge" full screen phone. :)
Sony phones are better built n have better quality than cheap plastic samny phones. Of course the price is higher!!!
Are you guys crying because of this price? Try do live in Brazil the baby is comming for equivalent to $1.000,00 and the galaxy s4 is comming for $1.200,00 or to the apple lovers we have a iphone 5 for $1.500,00.
$720,00 its a dream, this is cheaper than a galasy s2 here.
That's funny....The ZL costs only around $640 here in India...The Z costs $710 here...Usually it's the other way round...Prices here are usually around $50 higher than in Europe or US...
that's even more expensive than iphone 5. not sure what sony is thinking
Why is it that Sony makes it's price outside of Asia higher?
The ZL is way cheaper than the Z and Galaxy S4/S3.
And I own a ZL as well.
XZ provides water/dust resistance and durability
HTC ONE provides boom sound, zoe and premium build
S4 provides small compact 5inch screen, light weight, super amoled and the best features in a phone aswell as a great camera
ZL - small compact design and 5 inch screen...
the first 3 phones have a reason to be expensive...but the ZL has nothing special... sony is going downhill especially with their crazy pricing... this phone should be $500 MAX
$750 for a phone? what is happening to you people? getting dumb n dumb day by day!
it way cheaper in malaysia,cost about 1899 myr or $612,included 4g lte i guess
mobydick, 25 Mar 2013$720 for Xperia ZL is insane! It does not worth that much. Nexus 4 has the similar CPU+ RAM b... moreYou know the reason why not most people don't go for nexus although it has good specs? No radio. Music player cant replace one's favorite dj.
I just bought mine over the weekend, cost around usd540 only in Malaysia (non LTE version,no contract)...usd720 is way too much...
slimshaddy, 25 Mar 2013yeah pay 144$ less and buy a shitty\ugly phone. it's my money you acting like you paying my bills $ 579 over $720 is much better . what does ugly have to do with making a call to 911 or calling home it's a phone
Normally US price is high because of tax and shipment. Tax in US is ridiculous, ask an american he'll agree. The best way to avoid tax in US is be a church leader.
Premium finishing, premium look, premium price, but not premium spec. If u want to buy a phone, two things u should consider, Pricing and Utility. Aluminium unibody or glass battery cover is rubbish. Drop test one of the most stupid thing i have ever seen since i turn 25. Do I use the phone as a hammer? Sonny do something to reduce cost of production and price please.
brynn, 25 Mar 2013Its only the S4 pro chipset not the 600 as well???You`re reading too much and getting in-hand far too less.Snapdragon 600 is kinda marginal upgrade to the S4 Pro, so ya, if that bothers you, then you surely should go buy something else and don't ever post about mobile devices.Thanks.
