Sony is one of the very rare companies who know how to balance the right level of features between smaller and larger devices. Their newly announced Z5 series has a very powerful Z5 Compact, a good Z5, and a slightly fluffed up Z5 Premium, all without compromising on processor, RAM, or camera performance.

However, that comes at a price and we're just starting to discover what the tag will be on these smartphones. Sony's announcement didn't include any pricing details, but retailers all across Europe and the UK have begun listing the different Z5 devices on their sites. Here are the known amounts of euros and pounds you should part with:

So yeah, that's a boatload of money for the Z5 Premium and a lesser one for the other two models. Dollar for dollar, when conversion rates are factored in, you're really getting ripped in the UK, especially on the Sony Mobile Store. If I lived there and wanted one of these, I'd try my best to grab it in another country and have it shipped over.
