What the Critics Are Saying...


Coolsmartphone

The CPU and memory specification feels like Sony are lagging slightly, especially with such hot competition and entry-level phones coming close or beating in those areas. The battery-life on that 2870 mAh unit didn’t quite cut the mustard. That all said, this is still a solid and beautifully-crafted...

For a mid-range device, both the Sony Xperia 10 and Xperia 10 Plus are interesting choices. The 21:9 aspect ratio makes them unique, but I don’t know if it’s enough to make you want to choose these over others in the market. If you were to go with one of these, I’d choose the Xperia 10 Plus over the...

For a mid-range device, both the Sony Xperia 10 and Xperia 10 Plus are interesting choices. The 21:9 aspect ratio makes them unique, but I don’t know if it’s enough to make you want to choose these over others in the market. If you were to go with one of these, I’d choose the Xperia 10 Plus over the smaller sibling mainly due to the slightly better specs, larger screen, and better cameras.

On the surface, the thin and tall device has an intriguing design, but looking deeper there are a few notable issues. The dual-camera set-up feels outdated, with photos appearing pixellated before even zooming in. This seems even more frustrating given that watching videos on YouTube and Netflix holds up well and feels almost cinematic. Another qualm is that the fingerprint sensor is very temperamental, seeming to only work when it feels like it.

While its $299 price tag is enticing, and its general performance is impressive, we’d probably opt for one of the Xperia 10’s more orthodox competitors. The 21:9 display, while occasionally brilliant, is irritating more often than not – you really need to have hyper-flexible fingers to make the Xperia 10 manageable. It’s a shame, because the raw materials on show in the Xperia 10 would make for a very strong budget phone.

The Xperia 10 and 10 Plus appear to be well-built midrange phones with a useful quirk in their unique screen sizes and pleasant software experiences. If only their performance were as good as their looks. 

Alas, these devices are far too pricey for their occasionally maddening performance, uncooperative cameras and middling battery life.

Having a 21:9 aspect ratio could be useful, but it is impractical at present

from Notebookcheck

Sony has taken a step in the right direction with its new Xperia series. The Xperia 10 is a quirky and decent midrange smartphone, but its outdated SoC makes it currently too expensive in our opinion.

The camera has left me disappointed now and then, and I had to reboot the phone to fix fingerprint sensor issues, but it’s usable—no question. I just wouldn’t recommend it. At $350, the Xperia 10 is more expensive than the Moto G7 ($300), and more of a hassle to use. The Xperia 10 Plus is faster and a better choice at its $430 price point, but you still may want to opt for another phone, like a Moto Z3. The Xperia 10 series isn’t bad. I just can’t think of a convincing reason to own one.

The Sony Xperia 10 and 10 Plus are a bit of mixed bag, just like most mid-range phones. Unfortunately, the areas where they cut corners appear very obvious to users. The display, while cool, is just not good enough. I really do like the 21:9 aspect ratio and I think it’s the future, but the overall dull colors, the ghosting, and lack of an always-on display are serious drawbacks. Software and performance is also an area where I hope Sony can improve this phone with an update.

Not only does the Xperia 10 and 10 Plus’ sleek dimensions make them great to hold, Sony’s metallic chassis reminded me how nice it is to have a phone that features something besides glass on the back. And with an easily removable SIM tray featuring a microSD card slot, a handy headphone jack up top, and stereo speakers on the Xperia 10 Plus, Sony’s latest low-cost handsets come pretty well equipped.

Pocket-lint

Gives you a lot of phone - mostly in the vertical sense

from Pocket-lint

The Sony Xperia 10's elongated form-factor - it's a 21:9 display - is really interesting, but only useful when watching compatible movie content - which looks excellent - otherwise it can be a drawback. Furthermore, the mid-range competition is strong, with the Moto G7 Plus is likely to be the better all-round option for many.
