Mobile station are very good, my first purchase from them but do know a few people who have bought from there before and are happy. 

Price includes GST however there is $30 shipping fee, phone was delivered on day 4 from order. Mind you it does come as an open box (unsealed) bur everything genuine as with parallel imports. 

Mine from PB Tech was sealed and is from Sony AU but obviously cost more too. 
Cheers.

Mine got 4.4.4 today.

Bit of a delay but still impressed with Sony's commitment.

My teenage son wanted one of these because the large screen is great for watching videos. We went with Mobile Station in part because of positive endorsements but we're not having a "very good" experience so far. We're still waiting for ours beyond the 10 working day delivery target. We've had no update on why it is taking so long to arrive and I just sent a second message asking for them to provide some idea when we can expect it. I hope I'll get a response this time. frown

I had the 6.3" Galaxy Mega which I used mostly as a tablet at home, it was a great form factor but performance was a bit underwhelming so I replaced it with a Tab S 8.4 but I find it to big. The Z Ultra might be a nice medium and would be a nice companion to go with a Z3 Compact.

The phone arrived today several working days later than expected but my son's happy with what he got. laughing

It is very impressive for NZD430: strong body, smooth and responsive touch interface and performance, plus it is waterproof. We hadn't seen one working or even seen Android 4.4.4 which it arrived with. Swedish package so the only issue might be the travel adapter supplied for NZ power points.

Glad you love it.. I am still using mine as a daily driver.. no looking back and no regrets! 
What you get for the price its selling at right now is simply amazing!
