Virgin Mobile are ringing in the changes today. First they have started their bonus data deal today but have also announced that the Sony Xperia XZ in Forest Blue will be available at Virgin Mobile from Friday, 5th May.
The Sony Xperia XZ will be available on the $45 per month plan which offers just 4GB of data. This pricing is available for Velocity Frequent Flyer Members only on a 24 month plan.
When Duncan reviewed the Sony Xperia XZ earlier this year he gave it an 8.1 out of 10 with it scoring highest in the software experience department. For those who want a decent phone with a good software experience this could be one worth looking at. There is a vendor skin, Xperia UI on top of Android but from my experience the Sony skin is minimal at best.
The phone sports the older Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 and has 3GB of RAM alongside a 5.2in 1080P LCD display. The rear camera is a very capable 23MP with the front selfie camera coming in a 13MP. The 2900mAh battery is charged via a USB-C port and although it launched with Android 6.0 there is a Nougat update available for it.
The Forest Blue Sony Xperia XZ is a stunning device in blue. If it piques your curiosity and your desire for a device that is different check out the Virgin website and stores from tomorrow.
