The Sony Xperia Z5 Premium is now available in the UK (hurrah!), so it’s time for a spot of bargain-hunting. There's a lot of hope resting on the Premium's shoulders, with Sony having had a rough ride of late in the smartphone market.
The Japanese giant's latest flagship is a 5.5-inch number with a ludicrously sharp 3,840 x 2,160 -- otherwise known as 4K (yes, on a smartphone) -- display, a 23-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter and a Snapdragon 810 processor paired with 3GB of RAM. It's also IP65- and IP68-certified, runs Android 5.1 Lollipop and looks rather slick.
Lots of sellers are offering the 4K smartphone art different price-points, so we’ve tried to make it easier for you to pick out the right deal for you. Read on to see the best SIM-free and pay monthly Sony Xperia Z5 Premium packages.
Sony Xperia Z5 Premium SIM-free
It’s a premium phone, with a premium price tag, called the Premium. That's why Sony’s flogging its latest flagship for a whopping £629. Sheesh. Fortunately, there are far wallet-friendlier options out there. The best SIM-free deal we’ve spotted comes from eGlobal Central, which has it up for a much more appealing £523.99 (with free delivery). If stocks run out, your next ports of call should be Simply Electronics (£525.95) and Value Basket (£528.99).
