Gemini: Any good deals in NZ now they are in stores or just $750 everywhere?


I am looking for it too. Nothing so far except free memory card and 2 year warranty from Sony itself.


Is it still available? I thought that was a pre-order deal that ended Tues?


Sony Store is still doing it


Reason I ask is last week buy now added card to cart, now it doesn't


One of my mate have bought it from Sony Store on Tuesday and they gave him a card free. Not sure if they are still doing it. 


JB reckon $748.93 is a hot price and is only a limited time?
PB Tech $722.20 on special until end of today

That's just the difference between imported and locally sourced. It's the same no matter what phone you get.

I've had my Z3 over a month now and I still got it cheaper than its local price when it came out earlier this week.

Note the two model numbers with the Z3 Compact, one supports future 700 LTE in NZ and one doesn't. Both support 1800 and 2600 LTE. I'm not 100% but the NZ model should support our 700 LTE band (28?).

Yep, the Eu model, D5803 is likely the cheaper model.

If you were a fan of the design of the iPhone 4S (like me) you'll like the Z3c
It's similar but better
- smaller top and bottom bezel and no button so nice clean front
- the screen on the Z3c when off is more black so better matches the bezel
- less words and symbols on the back
- the belt around the sides is more integrated on the Z3c than 4S
- a single volume rocker button is better and it's in a better place (but we knew that before the 4S came out right?)
- dedicated camera button
A lot of those are valid if comparing to iPhone 6 design also

Found an odd quirk (coding issue?) with adding an Office365 (probably any exchange activesync account) to a Z3 compact.
You need to add it, and specify activesync from within the mail app, if you try to do this via the account section the phone defaults it back to an IMAP which only syncs mail (leaving contacts, calendar and tasks etc behind).  

A few head scratching minutes was had!   Seems to be a problem with the Z3 too according to google.

Slightly under $700 at JB Hi-Fi now, seems the lowest non-parallel imported price? Wonder if Sony or Spark would go lower than that or throw some more freebies in...
