Reviews for the Sony Xperia 10

83.9% Sony Xperia 10 Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
Sony is trying to break new ground in the smartphone market with new Xperia devices. The Xperia 10 is the company’s latest attempt to crack the midrange sector, and it has equipped the smartphone with a Snapdragon 630 SoC and a 6-inch display with a 21:9 aspect ratio. The latter allows the device to keep its footprint to a minimum and still have a large display. Read on in this detailed review to see how the Xperia 10 performs in our tests and how it shapes up against its midrange competitors.
0% Sony Xperia 10 Review: Easy To Hold, Hard To Use
Source: The Verge English
I’m convinced that there’s a future for 21:9 aspect ratio displays in smartphones — who doesn’t want a bigger screen in a smaller device? — but I don’t think we’ll get there with improvements in power and screen quality alone, which the expensive Sony Xperia 1 brings along with its 4K OLED display and a Snapdragon 855 processor. There are some major usability obstacles to overcome before it becomes the norm, and the Xperia 10 is a bumpy start.

The Sony Xperia 10 doesn't have what it takes to compete against similarly priced midrange Android phones.

Much like the Xperia 10 Plus, the non-Plus isn't a strikingly good value proposition. On the contrary - there's a ton of competing offerings that deliver more for less. Particularly disappointing is the Xperia 10's battery life, and it's not like you're trading that for top performance - in fact, most rivals pack more punch.

Sony Xperia 10 and Xperia 10 Plus review: Charting a new path for the smartphone
Source: Android Authority English
I have to give Sony credit for taking a bit of a risk with the Xperia 10 and Xperia 10 Plus. The 21:9 displays make them stand out — literally, because they’re so tall. The awkward appearance aside, these phones have appealing displays, strong chassis, and table-stakes features like headphone jacks and fingerprint readers. Battery life just makes the mark.

The Sony Xperia 10 is a mid-range phone that brings Sony’s flagship style and unique 21:9 aspect ratio to a phone that’s a third of the price of its upcoming Xperia 1. It’s not the best phone you can buy for this price by any means, but if you like to watch movies and TV shows on your commute it may be perfect for you.

The Xperia 10 duo is certainly a unique-looking offering this year. We are not sure if any other manufacturer would be bold enough to try the 21:9 ratio any time soon, so, for the time being, you can be sure that these extra-long slabs will look special when you put them on the coffee table.

While we like the form factor and design of the Xperia 10 unfortunately it just doesn’t run well. Sure, it’s mid-range, but there are phones that cost less that perform a lot better.

Sony Xperia 1 and Xperia 10 series first impressions and hands-on experience
Source: Tech Nave English
At this point of concluding the first impression and hands-on experience, our boy, Jim ended this note with a heavy heart because he's a Sony fanboy (lol). But I digress, Sony smartphones have been a huge part of Malaysia, most of us grew up using at least one of Sony's mobile phones (mine was one the Cybershot series, loved it). Starting from this year onwards, we may no longer see any future Sony phone launches in Malaysia but there are still some stocks left according to their website.

Sony Xperia 10 hands-on review
Source: Stuff TV English
The pitch for the Sony Xperia 10 is very simple: like the look of that 21:9 screen, but want it on a budget? This could be the phone for you. And there’s even taller Xperia 10 Plus to consider, which gets a little spec bump relative to its increased size.

An ageing chipset throws up the biggest question mark, but based on our initial encounter, the Xperia 10 showcases the many benefits of its unusual 21:9 aspect ratio.

Sony Xperia 1, 10 Plus, 10, L3 hands-on review
Source: GSM Arena English
On one hand, it's kind of hard to be too surprised about Sony's new device announcements, purely on the grounds of the avalanche of leaks that preceded the MWC keynote. Then again, many of said rumors turned out to be nothing more than smoke and mirrors. Whether intentional or not on Sony's part, all that matters is that the devices the Japanese giant did unveil at the Barcelona event still managed to turn quite a few heads.

Sony Xperia 10 initial review: The £299 trendsetter?
Source: Pocket Lint English
The Sony Xperia 1 is the most exciting of the three Sony smartphones announced at Mobile World Congress 2019, offering all of the company's latest and greatest features. That's not to say the Xperia 10 should be ignored though. For £299, the Xperia 10 gives you a lot of phone. Sure, it misses out on a few things such as waterproofing, a more premium finish and a faster processor, but it also delivers a 6-inch screen with the new 21:9 aspect ratio screen.

Sony Xperia 10, 10 Plus Hands-on, Quick Review: Mid-rangers That Stand Out (literally)
Source: Unbox English
Sony understands not everyone has the scratch to drop more than 50K for a phone with a 21:9 aspect ratio, so the Japanese giant also announced a pair of mid-range smartphones that delivers the same cinematic experience, for less (we hope). The Xperia 10 and 10 Plus have mid-range innards, reasonably good displays along with what we hope are friendly prices when they’re officially offered locally this year.

Sony’s Xperia phones for 2019 take a bold approach with new screen shapes that dramatically change the appearance and personality of Sony’s lineup. The Sony Xperia 1 flagship is joined by the Xperia 10 and Xperia 10 Plus mid-range handsets. All three were developed with the same cinematic vision in mind.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

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.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.
