If you are living in the US and can’t wait for the official summer release of the Sony Xperia Z2 then there’s a way for you to get the latest flagship smartphone of the company as early as now. That is of course if you are willing to pay a lot for it from a third party retailer.
The unlocked Sony Xperia Z2 is currently available at GSM Nation for $799 which is quite high considering that an unlocked Samsung Galaxy S5 or an unlocked HTC One (M8) costs around $650 to $700. If it’s any consolation this price is lower compared to what it costs in some European countries.
The Sony Xperia Z2 being sold is compatible with either the AT&T or T-Mobile network and is able to take advantage both of their 4G LTE networks. Consumers who prefer to use Verizon, Sprint, or any other CDMA-based carrier won’t be able to use this device though.
Buyers will have three color choices to choose from ranging from white, black, or purple. There’s even a protection plan available which adds on to the price of the device. A one year protection plan costs an additional $75 while a two year protection plan costs an additional $135. The protection plan protects the device from accidental drops in case of accidental damage. It also protects the device from normal use mechanical or electrical failure such as touchscreen or battery issues.
If you really must have the Xperia Z2 then you might want to check the device over at GSM Nation however if you can wait for a few more months then you can get it cheaper at the official Sony online store.

The Xperia Z2 is the latest flagship smartphone of Sony that’s packed with several outstanding features. It is made of a glass back panel with silver side panels making it have a premium feel to it. It has a water and dust protection feature making it able to withstand environments which is normally not suitable for mobile devices.
What’s probably the most interesting part about this device is its use of a 20.7 MP rear camera that uses a sensor that’s 30% larger than that being used by regular smartphones. This makes photos taken by the device at par with that taken by compact cameras.
