Does this have unique writing features? being waterproof means you can write underwater? Other than triluminous display, what more can we benefit from this phablet for productivity?
looks good but its a gigantic phone.
the price will drop 4 weeks after its release to 599. around xmas you can have it for 99 euros or even less on contract.
anyway, the price is ok for this specs and the design. and keep in mind that sony was never a cheap brand.
This price is quite fair. Cause X-Reality Engine for Mobile and Triluminos display is not cheap tech.
Seems like htc was around samsung but know no new 2ghz or over phones
No way pure profit, what about marketing costs, distribution costs, labor costs, etc. U need to know the managerial accounting.
lolza, 25 Jun 2013this is insane..the parts only cost about 240$ which is like 183 euros + vat= 220 euros. the r... moreHow do you know how much the parts cost? You know the Triluminos displays uses quantum dots in the backlight, right? I don't suspect this new technology is cheap.
A 3050 mAh battery is not enough for this mini-tablet with a batterydraining Snapdragon 800 and 6.4 inches screen!
this is insane..the parts only cost about 240$ which is like 183 euros + vat= 220 euros. the rest is pure profit and greed !!!
rocketlog, 25 Jun 2013It's a high end phone. It's got top-of-the-line specs. You expect it to be cheap? 720 Euro , Phew ! If that is true it costs a bomb, well almost !
Meaning it can blow a hole into your pocket !!
BULA BENIS, 25 Jun 2013719 euro means over 800 euro with taxes !!! hahahahah, i'll better buy a 2000-2002 vw golf !!!... moreThat is included in the price.
The HTC One and the SGS4 were priced almost similarly with both costing 699,-.
So the Xperia ZU's 719,- is 'just' 20,- more...
Mr.Greg, 25 Jun 2013Sony, are you stupid??? From where did you get this price? Do you think all people are millionaire?It's a high end phone. It's got top-of-the-line specs. You expect it to be cheap?
Sony, are you stupid??? From where did you get this price? Do you think all people are millionaire?
"That's quite steep, but given the kind of package it gets you, probably reasonable price tag."
Simply put, reasonable price considering what you get for the money.
How much did SGS4 cost at launch? Not much less I think - at least where I live...
Sony, why take that long? By that time King Sammie would have tweeked more. Announce and release in a month, or rather leak simple information. This is why King Sammie will beat u. They are busy with Note3 and by the time u make it available, most people's minds would be preoccupied with Note3
719 Euro?Yes,its a little steep.But of course,that phone is a monster.But even,I will wait for the Note 3.It will rule the competition again,with its various features.
