Of all the Amazon Prime Day deals we've seen so far this one on the Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact is among the very best. Indeed, it is without doubt the best Prime Day phone deal we've seen.

So what is the deal with this Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact deal? It's something of a portable powerhouse of a smartphone even at its usual price, but now that's been hacked by a sizeable £130 – down from £529 to just £399.

The Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact is the smaller version of this year's Sony flagship, the XZ2, but it's only scaled down in terms of size. 

It's equipped with the same Snapdragon 845 flagship processor and 4GB of RAM as the Samsung Galaxy S9, and performs just as well in benchmarks.

That means, for a price that is well south of even famously affordable flagships like the OnePlus 6 and Nokia 8 Sirocco, you can carry around one of this year's most powerful flagship phones.

Here are the details of the deal in full:

This is, simply put, the best Amazon Prime Day phone deal we've seen. That's because you can currently pick up the Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact for a - considering the flagship-level specs - quite simply ridiculous price point. If you thought the OnePlus 6 and Nokia 8 Sirocco were affordable flagships then think again, as the XZ2 is currently retailing over on Amazon for just £399. That's a massive £130 price reduction, and saving of 25% overall. Remember, this thing has the same CPU and RAM as the Samsung Galaxy S9!View Deal

As you would expect for such a quality handset, T3 very much liked the Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact on review. We said: "The Xperia XZ2 Compact is a small but very powerful Android phone, one that if you are fan of smaller handsets, or have particularly small hands, will most likely appeal to you very much… There's nothing else like it on the market – it's a flagship-spec phone in a pleasingly compact, old-school form factor."

And that was at its launch price. At this price it is one of the absolute best smartphone deals of the year.
