Android is currently enjoying a good run on the device front. Between the Nexus 5 offering amazing bang-for-buck and well-designed handsets such as the Moto X if you're after a bit more, it's hard to go wrong when buying a smartphone powered by Google's OS. And, for those after something more portable, you can now pick up Sony's Xperia Z1 Compact, unlocked from Telstra for the tidy sum of $552.
As OzBargain user "moocher" points out in this thread, the telco is selling Sony's latest device, unlocked, for $552. You'll have to wander to a store to take advantage of the price, but it does come with a 24-month warranty and the cost is competitive compared to the likes of Kogan and eGlobal, when you take shipping (and a smaller warranty period) into account.
