Unlocked Sony Xperia Z makes its way to Best Buy stores Although the Sony Xperia Z has not found a carrier in the U.S., Best Buy has begun selling an unlocked version of the smartphone.
The phone is selling for $900, however, easily the most expensive phone available. By comparison, the new Galaxy and even the iPhone sell for less unlocked, even in premium configurations.

Even worse, the device will not even work with LTE networks, and only supports 3G.

The device runs on Android 4.1.2, has a 1080p 5-inch display, a 1.4GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, 2GB RAM and a 13MP camera.

I just can't believe almost anything in this article.

I don't know why should anyone buy it in stores for $900 when it's being sold cheaper in sonymobile.com, which sends it directly to your home.

And, sorry, but the Xperia Z is superior to the Galaxy S4 in almost everything, if not everything.

The specs in this article are all wrong. It has LTE (4G Network LTE 800 / 850 / 900 / 1800 / 2100 / 2600 - C6603). Its processor is 1.5 GHz quad core.

Please, let's be objective. This is currently the most expensive but also THE BEST Android phone available. Even Samsung is allegedly preparing a IP57-certified version os the S4 to be able to compete with such a beast.
