Was just in Brent Cross and saw a "return" one of these in John Lewis for £225. I know Folk don't like such posts, but its still there if anyonewants one).

(Also had an IPad Air 2 WiFi 64gb return for £379).

Anyhow, out of interest, as I have become a big fan of the Z phones, I checked the cheapest prices for new.

Seems both Argos and Amazon have it at £30 off. Have linked to Argos as they pay their taxes.

Brilliant phone as with all the Z series phones from Sony

i went from 4 years of iphone to the Z1 and dont regret it. few friends got the z3 and z3 compact on the back of my recommendations and they all love it as well.
Hoping the z4 is out before my next upgrade

The maybe phones with a better camera or a better screen etc etc but as an all-rounder you'd struggle to find a phone better than the latest z series phones

This is a Tablet and not a phone.

This. Sony make some nice things in the Z range, names aren't one if them.
Trying to find a decent (and not horrendously expensive) case for my Z3 compact phone was a nightmare.

lol cracked me up. made my day lol

because I was just about to comment thinking it was the phone as well.

Doh for me as well

Not waterproof. Probably best to think of these as water-resistant.

Remote play as well!!

Currys have had this price for over a month.

I have the Z3 phone and a wifi network that averages 37mb and can only get remote play to work for a few minutes even when the phone and console are within a few metres of the router so don't rely on that as a reason to purchase.

Is your ps4 connected to the Internet via ethernet or wifi. Mine is via wifi and remote play is terrible. Sonys website recommends ethernet.

No, best of think of it as water resistant. First of all, the definition of water is very specific. I think the makers of this phone prefer ph balanced spring water. And then, provided you have totally closed all the hatches on the phone, put it in water. The water itself must not be moving. It must be still. And then it only has tolerance for about 30 minutes of immersion. I am saying nothing about water temperatures, or chlorinated/salt, and so forth.

So you have to ask yourself. If you truly believe your £500 or £300 smartphone is waterproof, go ahead and use when you're swimming. YouTube videos or clip excepts won't persuade me to put my Z3 in water. I feel more confident in it's rain resistance. But water, no way. Google "Z3 not waterproof" for research. There are many accounts of screen issues after exposure to water.

Lol. Good luck with that. If you left it in for 40 minutes I think you exceed the 30 minute recommended water exposure. This phone isn't waterproof. It will resist water but not for long, and at a very low depth. I am not saying you can't put it in the bath for a short period and I am sure you have. I don't need to see a video. All I am saying is be very careful; this phone is not a diving bell or intended to replace an underwater digital camera. There is also anecdotal evidence on Google of Sony giving short thrift to water damaged phones, and I wouldn't want to test that.

the tab s has an amazing screen higher res screen and is currently cheaper

This is not a deal! £299 is the standard RRP and there's been a £30 Sony cashback deal since release. Even at that price it's way overpriced compared to the competition. I really want one, but I'm not spending over £200 or maybe £280 for the 4G version.

Last week the Xperia Lounge app had an up to 25% discount code, so the WiFi version was £225 and the 4G version was £320. There's also been a few other offers selling them at around that price.

The video is fake. the picture he takes has a fake nemo swimming in front of him, ye sure. they are in a tank im sure, but no fish in there whilst taking video then appears for photo
