Despite Sony is the dominant manaufacturer of phones camera sensor, it never make its own phone camera superior than the other. Sony might be good at making camera sensors but they never know how to use it.
Not only here, but in all of your competition sections, compare phones that are carrier compatible in all same countries as the one being reviewed.

So I guess this phone is a midranger targeted at those interested in this aspect ratio media content and creation, coupled with hi res sound reproduction capability.
SoC and battery(although not bad) is a miss here, but if its not an imperative for gaming or heavy multitasking, it ll be quite sufficient for daily use.
Anyways, I think last years XA2 was a better overall offer (though it had some sound recording issue, I hope they fixed it with an update or sth)
Sifat, 16 Mar 2019The image quality in daylight is excellent in the Xperia 10 plus for a mid range device..... A... moreYup, daylight shots are great, especially with HDR on.
Also, why dont they ever do the HDR low light photos for Xperias, but just daylight ones?
And those lowlights here arent bad at all for a midranger, I ve seen better, and I ve seen worse midranger phone lowlights.
But we only got a typical Arena comment.... "lowlights are barely usable..."
This midranger has good lowlight detail, well controlled noise, but lacks better dynamic range... so why not shoot some lowlights with HDR on also?

Phone is targeted toward those who want big tall screens and that's about it. So far they are the only offering and that's what they are banking on. Will it payoff? No one knows. But internal specs is something people are not concerned about when buying 350 dollar phone cause they are not enthusiasts like us. My friend's mom just got A7 cause of two things: she heard of Samsung as quality phones and its big and gold ie nice looking. That's about it.
The verdict for this review is almost word for word what I said when I saw the specs and the asking price for this phone. Sony you messed up big time... again and you seem to have no capability to learn from any of your mistakes.

And by your logic, those Galaxies are worse than 100$ phones.... Kudos...

The image quality in daylight is excellent in the Xperia 10 plus for a mid range device..... Almost as good as the S10 series..... Picture quality, contrast, details.... everything is very good.....
So, why the negative tone GSMArena....
And even in your own proprietary photo comparison, Xperia 10 plus clearly beats the Galaxy A9....
Why Bash Sony when there is nothing to bash about?

Anonymous, 15 Mar 2019its fine if the top bezel is not that HUGE. i mean look at s9 and mix 2. its not that hard ... moreS9 and Mix2 have the same size or bigger bezel than Xperia 10 top bezel. 10mm bezel is not bad at all, it might seem big on pictures but in person it's normal bezel
500 bucks for a 200 or 250 euros specs phone.
Review is over i wont reccomend to buy it maybe after a year when the price becomes more real.
Sony is a dreamer and as a dreamer it will die once in the future.

its not that hard to design awesome phone with bezel.
dReXtremeR, 14 Mar 2019many phones have the screen connector at middle of the screen or at side, if you see teardown'... moreBezel has nothing to do with the connector in Xperia 10's case. Xperia 10 has connector and needed electric components below the top bezel anyway. Bezel is strictly a design decision. Sony didn't want to go notch so they went with full width bezel. That's all it is to it. Notch in nothing more than a top bezel with trimmed sides and all components centered.
Xperia 10 notch is about 10.4mm tall. Notch on iPhone XR and iPhone XS are almost as tall as Xperia 10 but here is the fun fact: Xperia 10 has less total bezels than both iPhone XR and XS. Total bezel area for X10 is 5.32si while XS has 5.67 and XR 7.18 square inches.

sony built a freakishly tall phone, and still manage to include a leviathan size bezel???
how low exactly you can go sony?
