[Deal Alert] Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact down to $399.99 ($200 off) at Amazon and Best Buy, $379.99 for pink on B&H

Phones are getting massive, and even the smaller versions of Android flagships these days aren't all that small.

[Deal Alert] Get an Xperia XZ1 Compact for just $504.99 ($95 off) from Amazon

Today, virtually the smallest mainstream Android flagship on the market is the 5.0" Pixel 2. That's a nice phone, but it's pricey and might still be too big for your liking. It's a good thing that the Xperia XZ1 Compact exists, then, and it's even better that it's currently discounted on Amazon to just $504.99. That's nearly $100 off on a still-new phone.
