Been looking at the Xperia XZ on Amazon Canada lately. Is this still a decent deal at $550?

Sony Xperia XZ1 is now available in Canada
https://mobilesyrup.com/2017/10/26/sony ... le-canada/
Sony’s new Xperia XZ1 is now available at Bell and Freedom Mobile and while Sony’s newest smartphone doesn’t sport the slim bezels and rounded edges of other 2017 flagships, it does sport high-end specs and a high-end price.

At both carriers, the XZ1 is $0 down on their highest two year plan and $1,000 CAD outright.

The Sony Xperia XZ1 is the successor to the Sony Xperia XZ — not the XZ Premium, the last premium device to hit the Canadian market — and features a 5.2-inch IPS LCD display with a 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution, an octa-core Snapdragon 835 chipset, 64GB of external storage, 4GB of RAM and a 2700mAh non removable battery.

Additionally the the Sony Xperia XZ1 features a 19-megapixel rear facing camera, a 13-megapixel selfie shooter and runs Android 8.0 out of the box.

@tk1000 why not start a new thread for the XZ1? You can make it the unofficial XZ1 thread.

I thought that's a given since Sony doesn't want to pay for some patents or something in both the US and Canada.
The Z5 had it in canada. And so does the XZ1

I realized now that if a Canadian carrier takes on a Sony phone, they'll "localize" it to include the fingerprint sensor enabled, otherwise, we just get a CAN/US model with it disabled.

Here's the reasoning of the fingerprint sensor being disabled.

Brings me back to the Nokia 6190 not having the IrDA port that the international versions (6110, 6130, 6150) had :) .

I was not sure that this 'successor' to the XZ needed a separate thread.

Go for it. The successor of Apple and Samsung flagships get a new thread. We'd love to know your personal opinion about the phone as well.

Wondering if you did get the phone and your thoughts. Especially from Amazon.ca dealers, I am thinking of getting one myself but worried about warranty because I cant seem to find a seller that sells official one from Sony Canada.
