The newest release in the series but the question is “Where to buy Sony Xperia Z1 in the US?”


The second half of this year has been known for the release of some high-end smartphones that come with some monstrous cameras.Sony was the last to enter this camera-phone race with it’s latest model, the Xperia Z1.

The guys at Sony put in a tremendous amount of effort in the Xperia Z to make it rival the two giants in the smartphone market: Samsung and Apple, and the result payed off. Just like Samsung and HTC, Sony decided to create a variety of phones based off the Xperia Z and that’s how the Z1 came to be.

The Sony Xperia Z1 has a 5-inch full HD display, a Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage with a microSD slot, a 20.7MP camera capable of HDR video, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, and a 3,000 mAh battery. All this is in a IP55/IP58 waterproof and dust resistant body.  With these specs it can easily rival the latest version of Samsung’s Galaxy or Apple’s iPhone. But the question still remains “Where to buy Sony Xperia Z1?”

It seems like the only carrier that offers it in the US is T-Mobile with its exclusive version and you can’t get it anywhere else, except for unlocked versions that you can find on the Sony store and on many other online shops. The main reason that only one US carrier has its hands on it is that the Xperia Z1 uses GSM (a network technology) which means that the antenna inside it will only work for AT&T and T-Mobil, Verizon using CDMA technology.

That being said, it’s now clear to anyone that wants the new phone knows where to buy Sony Xperia Z1. It is really disappointing that only one carrier can offer the smartphone. Oh well, you can always get the unlocked version if you don’t want to change your coverage plan.
