I also checked with Sony and they have no immediate plans to offer the latest Xperia through Rogers. For now it is only availabke through Bell and Wind (Freedom Mobile).
So I just got an S8+ to see if the phone is actually good. No complaints so far and more, importantly enjoying Android 7.0 again ( I had a 7.1 on my last Xperia). I found that LTE reception is much better on the original 7.0 comparable 7.1.
Sony phones are very good. They just don't get any marketing. And they still have authentic Carl Zeiss optics.
@Meowmix Ya they are good phones, ive had them all up to the Z4 (i think). the only issue in my opinion is the design. Makes me think of blackberry and how they didnt want to change their design language and be more 2010+ and cause of that, they died. I dont want sony to do the same thing. Rumours point to a big redesign though soon. Hope thats true. The smartphone industry needs more competition
