Unlocked and Available in US

Sony revealed today that they are releasing the Xperia Z5 and Xperia Z5 Compact in the US on Feb 7th, 2016. The two devices will be available from Amazon, B&H, and Best Buy. The phones will be priced at $599 for the Z5 and $499 for the Z5 Compact and both will be unlocked. The price is tough to swallow for many that are used to getting high end devices subsidized by the carriers, but you’ll likely end up saving money in the end if you go this route.
