The Sony Xperia XZ was released in October last year with a price tag of over $600. The same device is available on Amazon at the moment, and it will set you back just a bit over $300.

Last-gen flagships are undoubtedly the best value-for-money deals in the smartphone market, as most of them are only about a year old, with features and technologies that don't necessarily lose out to the latest flagships. The latest device to join the crew of last-gen flagship deals is the Sony Xperia XZ, with the phone currently on sale on Amazon for a bargain price of US$314.99.

The Xperia XZ was released exactly a year ago, so it's not like you'll be getting an ancient device or anything of the sort. For some perspective, the Xperia XZ scored an impressive 87% in our review, which placed it in the absolute top tier of smartphones available at the time. It sports a 5.2-inch FHD display—with Corning Gorilla Glass 4 for protection—Snapdragon 820, 3 GB of RAM, up to 64 GB of RAM, 23 MP rear camera, 13 MP selfie shooter, and a 2900 mAh battery.

This particular deal offers the 32 GB version of the phone, without a  gifted MicroSD, for US$314.99. It's still a great bargain for a device billed to receive Android Oreo in the near future. The model on sale is an unlocked version, and will not work on CDMA-based carriers like Verizon and Sprint.
