The Sony Xperia ZL LTE version can be purchased online for under $600 with no tax at certain retailers. Definitely the price it should be at. Remember that $760 is just MSRP. To be honest, screen woes aside, the hardware on Sony’s handsets is darn sexy. You are getting a 5″ 1080p display, 2G of RAM, a great camera, and an excellent quad-core processor. Who knows, maybe AT&T will offer it on contract.
