Sony Xperia 10 III review - A compact 5G smartphone with IP certification

Slim package. Sony squeezes a lot of modern technology into a compact smartphone. In addition to a current Qualcomm 5G SoC, fast USB port, IP certification, and powerful battery, Sony has also equipped its smartphone with a triple camera system that deserves its name. Our test shows where it stumbles.
Daniel Schmidt, 👁 Daniel Schmidt (translated by Mark Riege), 🇩🇪 🇳🇱 ...

The Sony Xperia 10 III is the direct successor of the Xperia 10 II. Compared to last year's model, Sony has performed a lot of fine tuning, particularly managing to fit a more powerful battery into an almost identical case size. In addition, the ports were updated and now stand out from most other models in this price segment. 

The Xperia 10 III starts from a recommended retail price of 429 Euros (~$507), which is slightly higher than last year's. While our test quickly shows that the additional premium is quite justified, the Sony smartphone also shows some weakness in one core discipline.

Case - With Gorilla Glass 6 and waterproofing

In addition to the classic black and white, the Sony Xperia 10 III is also available in more colorful versions such as blue and pink. While the front and back are protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 6, the frame is surrounded by a matte plastic, but this does not take away anything from the high-quality impression of the Xperia's exterior.

The workmanship of the Sony smartphone is very good. The gaps are tight and even. Attempts of twisting the smartphone case remain unsuccessful, without leading to any creaks. The cameras only protrude 0.8 mm (~0.03 in) from the case, so that any wobbling on a flat surface will turn out minimal.

As its predecessor, the Xperia 10 is dustproof according to IP6X and waterproof according to IPX5/IPX8. The card slot is flush with the frame and can be opened without having to use any tools.

Equipment - The Xperia 10 III includes an audio port, microSD, and USB 3.2

The equipment of the Sony Xperia 10 III makes some other, supposedly high-end smartphones look pale in comparison. In addition to the audio port, there is also an option to expand the storage via microSD card. Particularly the USB port stands out from the masses, since Sony uses USB 3.2 (Gen. 1), allowing for high data transfer rates of up to 5 Gbit/s if you provide the corresponding cable. Via an optional adapter to DisplayPort or HDMI, wired display output of up to 1440p is also possible.

There is even a notification LED on board, and the only things lacking are an IR blaster or a radio receiver.

microSD Card Reader

The microSD slot supports all the usual storage cards as well as the exFAT file format, but they cannot be formatted as internal storage. The transfer rates in the Cross Platform Disk Test using our Toshiba Exceria Pro M501 reference storage card are good, but they turn out only average in the copy test.

Software - Android 11 with slim Xperia UI

The Sony Xperia 10 III is delivered with Google's Android 11, with the inhouse Xperia UI added by the manufacturer. This looks very clean, only offering few changes from the stock Android.

During the installation, it asks about installing third-party and additional apps from Google, but even if you deselect everything, you will still find Facebook, Netflix, and LinkedIn on the smartphone. However, you can then uninstall these apps.

The coming Android 12 has already been confirmed for the Xperia 10 III, and there are supposed to be at least two years of quarterly security updates. At the time of our test, these are at the level of May 1, 2021. Here, Sony could surely have offered another year of updates.

Communication and GNSS - Single-band GNSS and Wi-Fi 5 for the Xperia 10 III

In terms of connecting to the mobile data net, the Xperia 10 III supports all the current mobile network standards including 5G. The frequency coverage offers all the usual bands for Europe and more for 5G, but the connection options aren't really abundant in this area. The reception characteristics are inconspicuous in our test.

As far as WLAN goes, Sony does not make full use of all the capabilities of the Qualcomm chipset and only offers Wi-Fi 5 with MIMO antenna technology. However, in combination with our Netgear Nighthawk AX12 reference router, this shows some good and particularly very stable transfer rates. On the other hand, competitors such as the Mi 11 Lite 5G or the iPhone SE already support the faster Wi-Fi 6 standard.

Outdoors, the Sony smartphone instantly succeeds in connecting to the satellites, determining its location very accurately. Indoors, this can take quite long and then also needs to level itself out for a bit. It becomes noticeable here, that the Xperia 10 III has a single-band support exclusively.

The Xperia smartphone is compared to the Garmin Edge 500 on a short bike tour in our test. While the smartphone at times also likes to take a completely new route, it mostly sticks to the correct route. With a deviation of 170 meters (~558 ft) on a total route of almost 10 kilometers (~6.2 miles), this remains within an acceptable range.

Telephone Functions and Voice Quality

Sony uses the standard Android app for phone calls, which also allows you to use SIP accounts to make calls. In addition, VoLTE and WLAN calling is supported, but not an eSIM. The hybrid card tray is able to accept either two Nano-SIM cards or a microSD instead of the second SIM card.

We like the voice quality of the Xperia 10 III very much. Using the earpiece, the smartphone convinces by transmitting the voice of our conversation partner clearly, and the quality of the noise suppression is also satisfactory. Only with very loud noises, it can take a moment until they are filtered out completely, and it can also happen that the voice of the Xperia user sounds slightly metallic for a short time. The speaker does not create any echo, but transfers the voice slightly more dull. However, it still offers a good alternative also for longer phone calls.

Cameras - Fairly complete but sluggish

At 8 MP, the front camera of the Sony Xperia 10 III has a relatively low resolution but still succeeds in taking good selfies in adequate light conditions. However, they can quickly become noisy in low light conditions. Videos can be recorded in Full HD resolution at best, with the available formats being 16:9 and 21:9.

For the main camera on the back, Sony does not use highly resolving sensors as well, but a similar setup as in the previous year. Nominally, the only change is the aperture of the wide-angle lens. While this is able to convince with a very balanced and natural image composition, it could use a tad more dynamic. The low resolution of the ultra wide-angle lens is noticeable, and particularly the areas at the edges show some blurriness and some slight aberrations. The third lens is a 2x optical zoom (maximum of 10x digital zoom) that occasionally tends toward producing a red tint. Overall, the triple camera system succeeds in taking good quality pictures during the day, even if the quality is not very attractive and marred by blurriness and image noise under weak light conditions. However, the biggest fault of the camera system is the long shutter delay. You shouldn't even think about taking snapshots of moving objects with the Xperia 10 III. The weak point in this case appears to be an undersized ISP (Qualcomm Spectra 355L), since the delays are also quite long using other camera apps.

Videos can be recorded in Ultra HD resolution (30 FPS) at best, and you can additionally also select the 21:9 format. Those who want to save higher frame rates have to be content with Full HD, which only offers the 16:9 format. The electronic image stabilization isn't particularly effective, but it is also possible to switch between the different lenses while recording.

Under controlled light conditions, the Xperia 10 III also succeeds in offering a very natural color reproduction without there being any outliers. Our test chart is reproduced very sharp in the center, and the drop in sharpness in the edge areas also remains within limits. However, the noisiness becomes quite noticeable at full zoom level.

Accessories and Warranty - The absolutely necessary and a lot of paper

The box of the Sony Xperia 10 III also contains a modular charger (up to 7.5 watts), a USB cable (Type-A to Type-C), and numerous little leaflets in up to 15 languages.

The warranty covers 24 months for the smartphone and 12 months for the accessories.

Input Devices and Operation - Xperia with a scalable User Interface

The capacitive touchscreen of the Sony Xperia 10 III recognizes up to 10 touch points simultaneously and responds to inputs quickly and very accurately. The glass surface offers attractive sliding characteristics and can be cleaned easily. Google's GBoard is preinstalled as the keyboard layout, but it can also be replaced by another keyboard from the Play Store.

For biometric security, there is a fingerprint sensor that is integrated into the power button. Its speed and recognition rates are good. Face recognition is not supported.

The physical buttons sit tightly in the frame, offering a short hub as well as a crisp pressure point. The power button is slightly recessed to prevent accidental pressing. You can also use it to start the camera via a double press. Those who have installed another camera app are also given a choice which of the apps to start. The dedicated Google button is smaller and also slightly recessed, but there is no option to configure it. The vibration motor is powerful, giving a comfortable feedback that is also easily audible.

Even if the display is relatively small at 6.0 inches, due to the tall sides, you might have to stretch out your thumbs at times. However, since there is a single-hand mode, this is doable, and the integrated side sense function also shortens the input paths and is easily accessible.

While the Xperia user interface appears very clean at first glance, the icons are also very small. Those for whom they are too small can adjust the display size in five steps using the display settings.

Display - Last year's good OLED display gets an extension

Subpixel grid
Subpixel grid

At 6.0 inches, the OLED display of the Sony Xperia 10 III is one of the smaller models, and with its side ratio of 21:9, the smartphone also maintains a small exotic format. Due to its 2520 x 1080 pixel resolution, it achieves a very high pixel density, causing the contents to be displayed sharp and crisp. Holding on to the 60 Hz frame rate represents a small disappointment, and particularly in this price class Sony could have at least offered 90 Hz.

Compared to last year's model, the brightness has slightly decreased, reaching 536 cd/m² in the center of the screen with full-area content and activated brightness sensor. Up to 329 cd/m² are available if you manually adjust the brightness. With an even distribution of bright and dark areas (APL50), the brightness increases up to 682 cd/m². A slightly higher brightness level would have been nice not only for the supported HLG or HDR10. Also considering the competitors from Samsung and Xiaomi, this performance is disappointing.

At brightness levels adjusted to less than 61%, the OLED flickering frequencies vary between 119.0 and 242.7 Hz, making it quite possible for sensitive persons to encounter some difficulties. In addition, the panel falls into a 60-Hz mode. Sony does not offer DC dimming.

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 242.7 Hz ≤ 61 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 242.7 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 61 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 242.7 Hz is relatively low, so sensitive users will likely notice flickering and experience eyestrain at the stated brightness setting and below.

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 21061 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Adjusted white balance
Adjusted white balance

Sony made some improvements in the calibration of the panel, which can display absolute black due to the OLED technology and offers brilliant contrasts.

In the standard settings, the color reproduction is slightly too cool and the colors are very saturated. Those who prefer display colors that are more natural should change to the original mode and manually adjust the white balance (see screenshot). Then the Xperia 10 III succeeds in offering an almost flawless color and grayscale reproduction.

Performance - The Xperia smartphone offers a Snapdragon 690 5G

The Sony Xperia 10 III is equipped with a current Snapdragon 690 5G with 6 GB of LPDDR4x working memory. The 8-nm SoC has 8 cores, two of which are the fast Cortex A77 cores (up to 2.0 GHz) and the remaining six, the more efficient Cortex-A55 (up to 1.7 GHz). The integrated Adreno 619L is a slightly slower representative of the Adreno 619 and part of the lower performance class. The SoC should be placed in the lower mid-range, without being much slower than the Snapdragon 750, though. There is sufficient performance particularly for everyday system operation, as long as multi-tasking is not in the foreground. 

Compared to the Nord N10 5G, which uses the same chipset, the CPU performance is only a minimally worse in the benchmarks. On the other hand, the performance turns out better in the graphics computations, and the measured values are significantly higher particularly in terms of AI performance.

In everyday operation, the snapdragon shows a good performance and we only rarely see any small stutters.

In the browser benchmarks, the Xperia 10 III can always be found in the lower third of the comparison field, even ending up in last place sometimes. However, this is not very noticeable in everyday operation. Although the loading of pages in complex websites can be quite a bit slower, we would not perceive this as any limitation.
