If you have a smartphone or tablet from the Sony Xperia Z family, you’re guaranteed an Android 5.0 Lollipop upgrade no matter how old your device. Sony has vowed to upgrade all Xperia Z devices — including the original Xperia Z, the Xperia ZL, the Xperia ZR, and of course, the new Xperia Z3.

Sony’s new Xperia Z3 Compact, the pocket-sized flagship that was announced at IFA 2014 in Berlin last month, is finally on sale in the U.S. Customers can buy the device directly from Sony’s online store — so long as they’re willing to buy the device outright for $529.99.

T-Mobile has today become the second U.S. carrier to confirm that it will be offering the Sony Xperia Z3 this month. Unlike Verizon, however — which has its own customized version of the device — T-Mobile will offer the original that was first unveiled at IFA 2014 in Berlin last month.

Sony has teamed up with Verizon to launch a slightly customized version of the flagship Xperia Z3 smartphone. It’s called the Xperia Z3v, and aside from the Verizon logos emblazoned on its back and front, it’s essentially the same device that Sony announced at IFA 2014 in Berlin back in September.

You may want to think twice about unlocking your Xperia Z3 Compact’s bootloader if camera quality is important to you. Sony has warned developers that hacking their devices could degrade camera performance in low light, making images look noticeably worse than they did before.
