Cool features not available in US market?

No Battery Care and no fingerprint sensor for phones sold in USA market? Makes no sense. Looks like a really good phone LTE-band wise (LTE (Bands 1,2,3,4,5,7,8,12,13,17,19,20,26,28,29,32,38,3 9,40,41) and the crazy megapixeled cameras. Also don't see any documentation about it being a dual-SIM phone - even though it says so on their website, nothing in their White Paper or User Manual confirms. Typical Sony confusion.

The fingerprint reader issue basically boils down to a contractual problem. Sony has implied to us that it isn't allowed to sell phones with fingerprint readers in the U.S. due to an exclusivity agreement it signed with a big U.S. carrier (*cough* Verizon *cough*). We've been led to believe that agreement will expire some time before the end of 2017 and the next round of Sony handsets will indeed have active fingerprint readers for U.S. versions. Not a great explanation, but it's all Sony has been willing to give us.

Read that somewhere before, I wonder which idiot in the company signed that agreement?
