Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact: Just Don’t Buy It From Sony!

By  | 

We have been singing praises for the all-new Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact and this is because the phone is fully capable of rivalling any flagship device despite of it being small in size.

But despite those praises, there is still one big problem with the Xperia XZ1 Compact and it is pricing. The device is said to retail at about $650 and this is very steep for a flagship phone that is made to pursue volume sales.

The good news here is that the XZ1 Compact’s MSRP is only fixed when purchase with Sony. Over on eBay, the XZ1 Compact is already being sold on promotion and you can get the device from only $540.

Also, if you can wait two months longer, you can expect the price to drop heavily at Amazon or any other major sales outlet. The point here is that you should not make the purchase with Sony as the brand will stick to the MSRP until they have somehow reached a certain sales target.
