I'm looking at upgrading my phone.
The Z3+ is out this month, Though from what I've read it isn't being released in NZ?

 

Either way I would like the copper color & thought if I parallel imported one I should be able to save some money,

But I havn't parallel imported a phone in a few years & I'm not sure which site is reliable & will stand by their warranties etc.

The phone has been release in Japan as Xperia Z4, & I thought possibly I could import one of those?

 

Or would it have japanese language only?

 


So basically what's the best bet?

 

eBay would probably be slightly cheaper but the phone may be fake? Or which site would you suggest buying from?

 

 

 

Thanks for any advice etc

I got my Z3 Dual from Expansys and my Z Ultra from Kogan, they will be my first ports of call.

Also that new law came in about tax on online sales. Do I need to pay the tax etc or does kogan/Expansys pay it?
Kogan mentions it in Bold on their Z3 page

I ordered a Xperia Z through mobile station when they first came out & I didn't have to pay anything

The courier company will need to be paid the GST etc before they will deliver.

Expert Infotech would be my NZ local choice.

We used MobileStation for the Z Ultra but it took longer than they stated to deliver. There were no other problems. "The phone itself works perfectly and arrived correctly configured for English despite the Swedish documentation and an added travel adapter for the charger." It would be preferable to get a charger that works in NZ without a travel adapter.

Saw an ad about the Z3+ in Sweden today. No demo models available to play with though. I suspect it may take a while to reach NZ shores.
