The camera is crap. But you get what you payd for.
The rest is barrable.

For 150 euros it isn't that bad at all. A little cheaper, say 130 Euros and it's a bargain.
Was the Depth-sensor useful or just for marketing?
even , 11 May 2020my 2016 xperia xa has NFC Last Xperia without NFC was E4 (2015).
It is $90 ore than Motorola E6s.
Bit it has Gorilla 5 on screen, 3/64GB, usb C, better selfie and BT5.0.
I have used the phone for 24 hours, and here are my initial impressions:
+ The phone feel stury and premium in the hand and provides good grip
+ The screen is surprisingly good, despite being only a HD+ LCD screen, very colorful and bright
+ Versatile camera quality with good picture quality when there is enough light
+ Front camera is very good
+ Amazing battery life, full day usage with lots of streaming and still more than 50% left
+ Fast carging (fast charger is not included in box)
+ Good connectivity: USB C, BT 5.0, NFC and DualBand WiFi
o Loud speaker is only average
o - The Helio P22 with 3 GB RAM is slow - a P35 or the Snapdragon 665 would have been more appropriate, but Sony reserves the 665 for the Xperia 10 ii, which is almost twice as expensive - for everyday use the system work fine enough though
- Android 9.0 - Sony, really, security patch from January - now that Xperia 10 has been updated to Android 10 I hope an update will come soon
- Definitely not for gamer
Summary: If you are a fan of the form factor and you can get it (like) me for 150 Euro, then I would say go for it.
Anonymous, 04 May 2020So the phone is out and no comments on the phone.... just more whining about the specs. Good ... moreI will get the phone today and can post some impressions, happy to answer questions. I got it for 150 Euro on eBay, which seems to be a fair deal. Yes the processor is not the best, but otherwise the phone ticks many boxes. True, Xiaomi sells phones at better specs for the same price, but they also sell customer information, have data privacy issues. Huawei releases new phones with micro USB Port, no NFC, BT 4.2 and not fast charge or dual and WiFi which the L4 all has.
So the phone is out and no comments on the phone.... just more whining about the specs. Good job gsma community.
I am glad this has 9.0 cos Android 10 is plop full of issues
Lol sony.. at least SD712..
Droidms, 01 May 2020Android 9.0 in 2020? Wtf! Then sony is wondering why their sales have been doing so bad for t... moreIt's a cheap phone as the answer to Iphone SE 2
There's always Xperia 1 or 5 to fully enjoy :)
L1 = android 7.0
L2 = android 7.1
L3 = android 8
L4 = android 9
They are keeping a sequence ....
Instead of complaining about cpu , you all should complain about brands that in 2020 still use such things like MICRO USB, GORILLA GLASS 3 and do not include NFC.
helip p22 and android 9 .... I wondering wht is sony smoking in these days of quarantine
Android 9.0 in 2020? Wtf! Then sony is wondering why their sales have been doing so bad for these past years... Even the specs are Terrible!
helio p22 r u kidding ? €200
Is the xperia designers team sleeping? Same design over years. They spoiled the advantage of 21:9 wide display by giving a notch on it.
All that horrible spec.. but Android 9?!! seriously
pan, 28 Apr 2020not really... they are not entirely the same just because of the chipset... some smartphones c... moreThe p22 is a weak entry-level soc, there was a time when people cared only about spec sheets, but know it's even worst, people think software optimisation can turn a Prius into a Ferrari, well it doesn't work like that. I think Sony should stope making these phones and focus on their x1 and x10 series, the x10 II is where I could agree with you, while the spec sheet doesn't look great for the price, I still think there are areas where that phone could shine.
Garbage for the Price, Weak chipset, small 3580mah battery and mediocre camera specs and launches with Pie.
