Deals: Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact for £300, Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 for £434
The Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact was replaced by the XZ2 Compact last month, but that just means it’s time for some bargain hunting. An eBay deal offers a new unit for £300. The best deals for its successor are around £520, so there are significant savings.
You can grab an XZ1 Compact from here. Note that this is only for the Twilight Pink color option, which isn’t particularly pink. You can use our specs difference tool if you’re wondering about the pros and cons of each model. In short, the screen isn't as sharp and the chipset is a generation behind, but we're still talking about a Snapdragon 835. Also, the 960 fps mode is shot at 720p exclusively with no 1080p option.
If you’re passing by an Argos, you can pick up a Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 for £434. It’s the 32 GB model, but the store will throw in a 64 GB microSD card, so storage isn’t an issue. This deal can be found here.
The Xperia XZ1 Compact does not come with a free microSD card, but you can pick up a 64 GB Samsung Evo Plus from here for £17.
Plus the headphone jack! Personally I think the XZ1 has the best design, they just need to make that camera lens flush with the body.

XZ1 Compact still a better choice than the XZ2 Compact because of better battery life, better front facing camera, fingerprint sensor on the proper position, and not to mention it's smaller and thinner. Not much improvements in the camera to justify ...
