Get Sony's extra-tall Xperia 1 with a crispy 4K HDR display for $748, its lowest price ever

Sony phones may not be as popular as ones from Samsung, but the company still has an enthusiastic and loyal group of fans out there. The Sony Xperia 1 isn't just for Sony fans, though — if you see the utility in a tall and slim phone with a 4K HDR display that offers a more immersive gaming and multimedia experience, then the Xperia 1 might be a good fit for you.

Sony used to be one of the most successful mobile companies in the world, but it never really got into a groove as modern smartphones took over the market.
