they aren't new and usually supplies out-of-region phones, so they're trustworthy.

their prices on the other hand isn't anything special.

Keep in mind PDAPlaza ships in 15-25 business days so you won't be getting your phone for quite a while and they will charge your credit card before even shipping it.

I was very intrigued by this phone, it kept features that today are seen as luxurious unfortunately, such as the headphone jack, expandable storage, led notification, etc.

But $1800...i don't think I can ever justify paying that much for a phone even if I did consider myself a heavy user. I ended up with a $200 S20FE and am content. It's too bad Sony doesn't work with carriers anymore here in Canada.

How did you get a $200 S20FE?

Sony isn’t very clear about warranty coverage in Canada on purchases from US . Spending $1800 on a phone and not having coverage is a big issue .

Bought my Xperia 5 II from them, took them a few weeks to ship it, at that time, they were the cheapest to offer the Xperia 5II. Phone is amazing !

Have to agree here. I recently paid 1100 for a brand new Samsung stove that cooks me 3 meals a day. That's the kind of utility measuring stick I use when considering buying something.
I find it odd that RFDers would proverbially cross the street to save .97 but are willing to shell out big bucks for a phone, claiming it's a steal.

If everything in life was about utility, you would just drive Corollas, shop at Dollar store, invest all your money. Then what? If you worked hard for that money but want to reward yourself, maybe an occasional splurge is in order. Spend it on a $200 meal at a nice restaurant, a luxury Spa package at a resort, or buy some other high end trinket like an Omega watch is a fine way to reward yourself. Obvious those things have very little utility.

Having said that, high end Android phones like this usually drop in value too quickly, and aren't supported for very long, so I'd be wary of dropping this much. At least Apple phones that cost this much don't have that problem.

I logged in to rfd just to upvote this statement. How people can justify throwing crazy money just for a phone is just unreal.
