Xperia Z5 Amazon Offer
The Sony Xperia Z5 and Z5 Compact have been discounted in the U.S, just a week after they were launched in the country.
Amazon is currently selling both the devices for up to $60 off its retail price. This was bound to happen, as the U.S version of the Z5 and Z5 Compact lacks an important feature and is also pretty late to the party. The U.S versions don’t have a fingerprint sensor, for reasons unknown. Also, competitors such as Samsung, LG and HTC are all set to launch new versions of the flagship phones in the next two months.
Sony lowered the prices for the device even before launch, but that didn’t help sales. Therefore, to try and improve sales, the company has once again discounted the Xperia Z5 and Z5 Compact. This time, in the United States.
The Sony Xperia Z5 32GB variant, which was $599.99, is now $539.99, that’s a $60 off. The Z5 Compact, which goes for $499.99, received a $50 price cut and is now $449.99.
Both the devices are flagship models and feature high-end hardware. The camera on both the devices are on top of the best smartphone camera list on DxOMark. The only difference between the two devices is the screen size and the 1GB extra RAM on the larger Z5.
The Xperia Z5 has a 5.2-inch 1080p display, whereas the Z5 Compact has a 4.6-inch 720p display. Both use the Snapdragon 810 SoC and sport a 23-megapixel camera. Both promise 2-day battery life thanks to the 2900mAh battery on the Z5 and a 2700mAh battery on the Z5 Compact.
Sony doesn’t sell these smartphones under contract, so you’ll have to buy them unlocked and pay full price. Amazon is currently selling these two at discounted prices in the U.S.
