Sony has opted to take a slightly different approach to selling their smartphones in the US, over the past year or two. Instead of trying to work with carriers and sell their smartphones through them, they have opted to sell them unlocked. Through their own online store, but also through retailers like Amazon. The Xperia XZ and Xperia X Compact just recently launched on Amazon, but Sony also has a few older models that are on sale right now. That includes the Xperia X, Xperia XA and Xperia X Performance. All of which are part of today's Gold Box Deal of the Day for Amazon.
The Xperia XA is coming in at $199, which is a pretty fantastic price for this smartphone, and is nearly 33% off of its regular price tag. Then there is the Xperia X which is selling for $349, down from $449, and finally the Xperia X Performance which is selling for $499 and that is down from $649. These aren't cheap smartphones, as Sony has never been known to release cheap smartphones, but at these prices they are definitely worth taking a second look at, especially if you are wanting to pick up a Sony smartphone over any of their competitors.
