Horribly overpriced. I was really considering purchasing this phone, but I was waiting for the price. No phone should cost this much. The fact that this phone isn't being picked up by any carriers really hurt it's chances. I could literally buy like 2 TV's for that price. Oh Sony, how you just keep disappointing me. Always over pricing yourself right out the door. it's such a shame :(
If no one buys the phone at that ridiculous price then Sony would be forced to lower it. Sadly, people will buy it at that price and Sony knows it.
In Indonesia this sells for Rp. 6,7 mil, which is only 0,2 mil higher than SGS3. I would certainly prefer this rather than Samsung, Blackberry or iPhone which is overpriced in my country. Indonesians are very easily excited by trend, that's the reason why those latter 3 are overpriced in here. Just because many artists are using those phones. Not to mention ridiculous taxes imposed by the moronic government...
I'm an Indonesian btw, just in case some think me badmouthing them...
If you feel the features are more important and you can accept plastic body, then get SGS4 which is much cheaper but more advance in all Xperia Z family.
i must say prices for xperia z, iphone 5, htc one in slovakia - slovak republic
we have much overpriced phones than usa
xperia z 739 usd =575€, at launch it was 600€=771 usd
iphone 5 735 usd =572€, at launch it was 710€=913 usd
htc one 815 usd = 634€ as preorder price
xperia ZL will be over 630€= 810usd
payment for work is 339€ as minimal rent=436 usd so this prices for a phone is ridiculous
Taxes might be the culprit. I'm a sony fan but 720 USD is too expensive. Sony Pricing in Asia are competitive.
For hhh, the different of xzl to xz is ..... you must read the article and not being dependent to others.
crazy sony fans defending this outrageous pricing?! it's overpriced to the other models in it category. thats why Sony can never move forward
it costs 600$ 3G verison in asia sigapore and malysiaa so what is the heck!!!!!! about 720$
prasetyo, 25 Mar 2013in indonesia iphone $900-1300 xd. yep your're right.
Anonymous, 25 Mar 2013XZ provides water/dust resistance and durability
HTC ONE provides boom sound, zoe and premi... moreIt actually (also) has more features than ZL (screen callibration to fix the awful colours of Z, IR blaster, slightly better battery, etc).
I agree $720 is too much, but that's too much for any phone out there, and ZL actually sports better features than Z in places that *matter* (screen legibility, control of domestic devices, small frame, etc), so if anything *it* (and not Z) should be the more expensive of the two...
