Sony Xperia 10 Plus review

13 March 2019
The 10 Plus, along with the smaller 10, are the first two phones that will attempt to sell you on a 21:9 screen - Sony may want you to think the flagship Xperia 1 is the true ambassador of the crazy-tall aspect, but that one is months away and the 10s are here now.

Sort by:

I actually like the design of this Xperia. No notch or mechanical pop-up camera to talk, just a simple bezel to house the camera and the audio, and it looks great. Plus, the addition of proper telephoto camera definitely making this a rather compelling prospect.

Saying fanboy just for the sake of it is so lame and so 2015....

After reading verdict and I use sony phone and I know their software tuning better then other. This phone is not bad as people think sony make phone as per normal people usage because this phone can run pubg and asphalt like game easily they just give better quality phone that's why their phone is costlier then Chinese brands. But if you properly compare it with same price of samsung phone you will understand that this give you better value for money. Samsung just advertise more

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.

Mogli , 17 Mar 2019There are no mistakes. Phone is targeted toward those who want b... moreI cant think of any other midranger that offers 21:9 screen, video recording and photo. Also hi res sound reproduction, along with aptX HD.
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... 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?
Pfff...

Neophyte1980, 17 Mar 2019The verdict for this review is almost word for word what I said ... moreThere are no mistakes. 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.

Please review the L3!

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?

Lol and the mere fact that nobody has joined Sony in this 4K master race alone makes it a ridiculous competition for them.....
