Sony Xperia Z1S Now Available Through T-Mobile Online

As of this morning, Sony has a brand new device available in the United States. Online through T-Mobile, you can grab the Xperia Z1S, which was announced last week during CES in Las Vegas.

If you are a T-Mobile customer or plan on making the switch soon, the Z1S won’t be a terrible decision. For specs, the device is rocking a 5.0″ 1920 x 1080 HD display, Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor clocked at 2.2GHz, 3,000mAh battery, Android 4.3, 20.7MP rear-facing camera, microSD slot, and access to T-Mobile’s 4G LTE network wherever you can find it. 

The device retails for $528 off contract or $22 a month with $0 down on contract for “well-qualified” buyers.

We had a few minutes to spend with Sony’s newest device to hit the US while at CES last week – for the most part, we kind of liked it. It has the same body as all of the other Xperia phones from last year, but unfortunately, Sony’s custom skin UI is still onboard and doesn’t serve much purpose. Check out our hands-on here.

    Except for the camera, this Xperia Z1S has basically the same specs as the Nexus 5 — which costs a LOT less:

    $399 – 32GB Nexus 5
    $528 – 32GB Xperia Z1S

    5″ full HD 1080p display, Snapdragon 800, 2GB RAM, etc. (OK, Nexus 5 technically has 4.96″ display.) Oh, and the Xperia Z1S has the larger 3000 mAh battery Google should have put in the Nexus 5. 🙂 Is that worth an additional $129?

          Not saying that it’s gospel or anything. I had just seen it posted by @evleaks the other day. Take it for what it’s worth.

    Has anyone purchased this device. I may take advantage of the etf deal and a waterproof phone that could be a bit better than my note 2 would be awesome. I would throw cm on it and not worry about the Sony ui

    • mofoliar

      I just purchased it gonna switch over just month to month… nothing special!!

      • MikeCiggy

        Phone is nothing special? Does performance match a note 2 or s4?

        • mofoliar

  • hfoster52

    Any info the Z1 Compact?

    • paul_cus

      That’s the one I’m waiting on.

    • sagisarius

      I don’t think any of the US carriers thought much of it… I think they’re a bit attached to “bigger is better”. My guess is it might show up as GPE before any carrier grabs it.

    • ahhh yes

      i know pricing has been released in europe with release date around the end of january. btw its listed price is way too much. something around 450 pounds. Negri has it listed at almost $700 pre order.

    So true “4G LTE network wherever you can find it.” As I’ve seen first hand from my friend.

  • John Legere

    Didn’t the Z1 have a terrible screen? i think the only really good screen was on the Ultra.

    • Cael

      Then why don’t you offer the Ultra?
