Ahead of what seemed to be a scheduled release next week, Sony has already released the Xperia X Compact in the UK. This comes after pre-orders were available since the beginning of the month.
You can currently purchase the handset from O2, EE, giffgaff, Mobiles.co.uk, and Carphone Warehouse. If you’re not a fan of two-year contracts, then you should know that Carphone Warehouse is also offering the device SIM-free, for 359.99. Other retailers should have the X Compact in stock starting next week, if you prefer some other company.
As for Pay Monthly plans, the cheapest one to net you the X Compact for free is generally under 30 no matter where you look.
The Xperia X Compact may be more of a mid-ranger than all of its Compact predecessors, but it still comes with decent enough innards. Whether its price is justified, however – that’s your call. If you want to know more about it, don’t miss our hands-on report from IFA.
