For me the best is allways buy sim-free version.
The user experience is more clean
US market is trash and it better that Sony is doing this. And should better concentrate on the more emerging markets around the world.
Billie, 26 Apr 2014the downfall of Sony has startedIt hasn't even reached the top, you can't fall if you're still low, or if you fall you get back up fast
I was going to get the xperia z2 but after all this crap, I decided to wait for the z3.... if this crap happens again I won't buy a sony phone...
Why should Sony consider about US. They are still in iPhone age.
And btw its better to concentrate on market they are good at in their current state.
Billie, 26 Apr 2014the downfall of Sony has startedu r r8...... they always try to be different... for this they could not gain their point......
If Sony sells these devices in Asia, EU I would not call it a downfall for Sony just cause US sales are only from their onlinestore. Its not like US is biggest potential customer base in the world for Sony.
It's weird as sony is practically non existent in the US but everywhere else they are on par with Htc and the Z1f outsold the iPhone 5s which were both new at the time in japan
its better for sony cus sony hasnt chance in usa when iphone-samsung and htc are there.
Way to put the final nail in its own coffin. Congratulations, Sony.
