Deal: Sony Xperia Z smartphone from £380

The Sony Xperia Z was unveiled nearly eight months ago and it comes as no surprise that its price is falling fast (nearly 25 per cent over that period), the trend has been accelerating lately partly due to the launch of the Sony Xperia Z Ultra a few weeks ago and the downward trend caused by the competition (which includes the Galaxy S4 and the HTC One).

You can now buy the Sony Xperia Z, otherwise known as the C6602, from UKBNS, a popular eBay retailer for as little as £380, a price that includes delivery and 380 Nectar points. There are a few issues with that particular model though. It doesn't come with LTE compatibility (i.e. limited to HSPA+) and it uses the old APQ8064+ SoC rather than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600.

Still, there's a massive 5in full HD display with Sony Mobile's BRAVIA Engine 2 technology, 2GB of RAM, 16GB onboard storage, a microSD card slot, a rear 13-megapixel camera, dustproof and waterproof capabilities and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. It's worth noting that its rivals is currently located around the £450 price mark. You can read our review of the Sony Xperia Z smartphone here.
