At CES 2014, we had a rather comprehensive hands-on experience with the Sony Xperia Z1s that was headed in the direction of T-Mobile, and we are more than glad to announce that this particular smartphone is finally available exclusively on the mobile carrier. Those who are interested in picking up this smartphone will be able to do so for $0 down, which should be a relief to folks who are on the lookout for a new handset and yet are pretty tight on their budget. Apart from that, you will have to agree to a 24 equal monthly device payment plan of $222 with T-Mobile’s Simple Choice Plan.
In the most recent addition to the Z series, the Sony Xperia Z1s is slim and yet this does not mean it is fragile. It sports an IP58 rating, making it the first waterproof flagship smartphone from Sony to launch in the US via a national carrier. Visuals play a huge role in the Sony Xperia Z1s, as it sports a 20.7 megapixel camera, the BIONZ engine for mobile image processing, and Sony G Lens, in addition to a stunning 5-inch Full HD TRILUMINOS Display and X-Reality for mobile. Each purchase of the Sony Xperia Z1s will arrive with half a dozen movies that you can download for free from Video Unlimited, including Sony Pictures’ Captain Phillips, in addition to 10 preselected PlayStation Mobile games, and a 60-day free trial of Music Unlimited.
