Sony Xperia Z2 arrives in the U.S. with unlocked SIM slot, $699.99 price tag


Remember earlier this year when Sony said that the Xperia Z2 would go on sale in the U.S. during the summer? Well it’s now summer and the Xperia Z2 is now available for purchase, just like Sony promised that it would be.

The Xperia Z2 recently made its way onto the virtual shelves of Sony’s online store. Available in black, white and purple, the Xperia Z2 is priced at $699.99. Unfortunately for anyone interested in giving the Xperia Z2 a home in their pocket, the device is currently backordered with no expected ship date available.

This unlocked Xperia X2 includes 850/900/1700/1900/2100MHz HSPA+ support as well as LTE connectivity on the 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 13, 17 and 20 bands. Also included are the following features:

  • 5-inch 1080p display
  • 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor
  • 20.7-megapixel rear camera
  • 2.2-megapixel front-facing shooter
  • 3GB of RAM
  • 16GB of storage
  • microSD slot that supports cards up to 128GB in size
  • 3200mAh battery
  • IP55 and IP58 rated for resistance to dust and water
  • Android 4.4 KitKat

Sony sure took its sweet time making the Xperia Z2 available to U.S. consumers, but because it’s still not available on any carriers in the States, this is the first chance that many folks will have at owning one. What do you all think of the Sony Xperia Z2? Are any of you thinking about making it your daily driver?

    No thanks, stick with my $375 Nexus 5 and my $350 OnePlusOne. So two phones for the price of one Sony Z2….

      Thankfully not everyone things like you because then we would only have plastic devices with shitty cameras and mono speakers.

    way too exensive

    Way too expensive, especially with the Snapdragon 805 out already and the Z3 likely to be released in September. I wonder if some US carriers are waiting for the Z3. The Z3 may work on T-Mobile’s 700 MHZ Band 12 which is great for coverage in buildings.

    Still, if they really want market share they should start dropping price before Xiaomi and other Chinese phones leave them and others in the dust. OnePlus would be a possible competitor, but they do not seem able to produce in meaningful volumes and there have been screen issues.

    I was really excited about this phone three months ago. But I bought the M8 and couldn’t be happier. Sorry Sony.

    WOW! Love it.
