4 colours to choose from: Pink, Black, Gold and White.
4 networks to choose from to buy the £10 top up from: EE, Virgin, Vodafone and O2.


I assume it will be unlocked?

If this is not the cheapest deal, please let me know as this handset has 3GB ram (less laggy than 2gb handset) and takes an a micro sd card to expand the memory.

That 2300mAh battery is unacceptable on such a decent spec phone. Shame

my Z3 has 3GB RAM and that is 4 years old. And the camera is better as i had a XA1 before sending it back upon seeing the XA2 ultra specs and deciding to wait for that to drop to under £250.

Returning one of these back to Amazon this week - while it's a great little phone with decent camera, the screen developed a yellow stain / discolouration after just three months of use. Seems to be a common enough issue with these phones - it's a shame really.
With that small battery shoved in there? No thanks. I can’t think of a logical reason why someone would pick this over something else around the price or even cheaper.

You forget, from day 1 (some year's back), the Z1's-Z3's were topping the £300-£500+ mark easy right? - I recall that well, as the up to 30 Minutes, 1-3 Metre's waterproof capabilities of those Z-Range Phone's REALLY intrigued me ... (but even though there was no UK waterproof equivalent to it in the Market at the time, it was a simple case of, was I prepared to pay the best part of £500+ for it though? - no I wasn't, lol, but yes, it was good for it's time too ... )

And also remember, the £1 was also worth more of a £1 5+ year's back also, then it unfortunately is today too right? (now the £1, is worth something around 75p?) - natural disasters, semi-conductor prices going through the roof + Brexit too, etc, etc, right?.

But yet, despite all that, the OP's Phone still launches at 1p shy of £160 allllll in, same way?.

It may not be for everyone (me included, lol - even though I saw this very same Phone in CarPhoneWarehouse over the Weekend), but it's a good bet for somebody ...

With competition from the Xiaomi's of this World, the OP's Sony Xperia probably wouldn't be worth a £200+ anymore, but a just under £160?, it's passable ... (though not for me).

So it all depends on how you look at it all I guess?.
I got one of these in the Ultra version with twin sim. Was a great phone but after an update, the bluetooth and wireless stopped working so returned it and bought an iPhone X instead. Upto that point, I had no complaints tbh. It also had more onboard storage than the UK version.
Please buy with caution there is a 15+ page thread on Sony's forum with the known issue of WiFi dropping with Bluetooth enabled. Sony are ignoring it.

Managed to get my partner's swapped out at a Vodafone store for a Huwaei instead but had to jump through the hoops of them sending it off for repair (which obviously had no effect). They had escalated it to the area rep as it was the third they'd had back that week.
Ooh lovely giant bezels, brings back memories.

Good price for what it is if yours doesn't get the Bluetooth blues.
Heated.
Partner has this phone signal is really poor. Likely underpowered to save battery
