Reviews for the Sony Xperia 10 II
The Sony Xperia 10 II offers a great media-viewing experience for around £319 / $399, courtesy of its super-wide OLED display. It doesn’t excel in any other regard, and you can get faster phones with better cameras for the money. But it’s an all-round solid option with few glaring compromises.

The Xperia 10 II is one of the more interesting devices to come out of 2020 so far. It's both weird and oddly encouraging that it can co-exist on the same constantly-changing market as the new wave of foldable display handsets. There's nothing better for the consumer than to be spoilt for choice. Even if the onslaught of new offers can get a bit overwhelming.

If you want a phone that looks like a flagship but doesn’t cost an arm and a leg, you’ll love the Sony Xperia 10 II. The Omnibalance design is back and there are no notches or cutouts in the gorgeous 6-inch OLED screen of this device. With its decent triple camera system on the back, the Xperia 10 II stands tall, in every possible meaning (metaphorically and literally), and shows what a mid-ranger phone should be.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
