What is wrong with the Sony mobile department people? Small battery, small display, large chin, high price these are the reason they sucks nowdays.
what are you looking for in the next year Xperia 10 III?
I prefer the following improvements:
Minimum 80% screen-to-body ratio
Better chipset (Snapdragon 690 or 700 series)
Front stereo speakers
I've had this phone for about 2 months now and am very happy with it. Great battery life, beautiful screen. Saw a dramatic improvement in video calling apps over my 4 year old Xperia X. The BT5 is great and my headphones don't drop out when I have a jacket on. I had a friend pick up the mint at a Sony shop in Taiwan so there is no bloatware or spyware.
$65 to ship to the US
Angry Birds, can't see the top of some levels. (I know, it's a guilty pleasure)
A7sii, 13 Sep 2020This is solid little phone, Believe me I have been using it for the last 2 months. The screen ... moreLi-po it's a Sony technology. They should have it from the start. It's the best mid-r device for 2020.

But the rest what you've described is ok. Among bunch of mid-range phones these days, this one seems quite good for it's price. Thanks for the opinion. In a few days Xperia 5 II should be released and I'll then see what to do - which one to go for.

The screen is stunning, the processor is good enough and the phone is fluid! The FP sensor works 100% and the the battery life is amazing. With normal use i get 2 days and with heavy use and gaming I get 1.5 days. Overall im really happy!
Only bad i would say is the camera isn't upto my expectation, but I use 3rd party apps and it solves that. Speaker is a single bottom firing speaker, not the loudest but still good enough.
Do you think this phone would be a good temporary solution while waiting for Xperia 5 II to be released and a little while until price drops? Let's say in next 6/7 months.
I don't play games but use the phone for all other regular daily tasks. I don't care about the camera because I have my compact Canon, however battery is important for me and performance in terms of being fluid while executing tasks.

Anonymous, 31 Aug 2020Good phone only negative that Small battery Slightly smaller battery but well optimized than those bloated phones equipped with 4K to 5K batteries. Surely, this can last longer on daily use.
Anonymous, 02 Sep 2020Samsung A71 better than this crap in every aspect.We don't care we will still buy crap and avoid exploding phones with camera issues!
Anonymous, 03 Sep 2020Still you cant notice any difference, in games you will not notice as well.Huge differences for 4GB vs 8GB RAM phone, Snapdragon 665 is lightyears behind Snapdragon 730, not forgetting 4500mha vs 3500mha battery.

User, 21 Aug 2020Hi, what camera app are better?Hedgecam2 best.

Nokia Fan, 26 Aug 2020Or at least 18:9. I miss the compact phones of Sony. :(I have this phone and its lovely to hold, to me its nothing short of perfect!
Exyvia, 26 Aug 202021:9 isn't only for cinema movies and wide screen tv shows.
It's also beneficial... morei'd gladly scroll more and give up split screen which i never use for a compact pocketable phone.
yeah you can do more in theory with a larger screen obviously but at this point it's infringing too much on portability and if it's stuff you don't make use of, well that's just adding insult to injury.
Not Sure, 25 Aug 2020i wish they made a 16:9 version of this.
i feel like the extra screen space is mostly wasted ... more21:9 isn't only for cinema movies and wide screen tv shows.
It's also beneficial when scrolling, you can read way more and also do split screen if you want to watch a video while texting. More vertical space isnt necessarily bad.

i feel like the extra screen space is mostly wasted those of us who want compact phones and don't watch 21:9 content on a phone.
