I don't need Xperia 1 features, but i like Sony UI, why there is no 10 plus again after first release at 2019. Please hear us Sony to make 10 Plus next year. Hopefully you can hear our request for this 10 Plus Version in the near future.

          I hate Sony so much, because they could be the best in the midrange segment with features like SD card, 3.5mm jack, front facing speakers and small form factor because nobody else does it, but they keep using budget SoCs and 60hz panels, while their cameras aren't any better than the competition.

          In 2-3 years we gonna hear again that their mobile division struggles with selling phones globally, blame customers that we dont want those features and will either stop making them or change their designs like Asus did recently.

                    I was looking for a slim smartphone with a width around 70mm or less. In this range there are only the Samsung S23, the Asus Zenfone 9/10 and Google Pixel a. But all of them cost around 550 €, compared to the 399 € for the Xperia 10 VI. The 21:9 format is oddly but I got my hands on the precedessor and it felt nicely in the hand. I don't care about OS upgrades (I'm not doing any banking on my smartphone), I don't need the fastest smartphone and I'm currently using a Samsung A13 2016 with Android7. SD slots and 3,5 jack are nice features.

                    So I guess, this will be my next smartphone.

                        NOK6600, 18 May 2024Sony is now niche market. they produced limited smartphone ... moreOffering 3.5mm jack and expandable storage doesnt qualify Sony as an innovative brand. Its more appropriate to label Sony as the most user-centric brand.

                          Xiaomi 13T is a much better device for the same price.

                            NOK6600, 19 May 2024you get side slot sd card + 3.5mm jack + Shutter camera bu... moreI would very likely have bought it if it were available in the U.S. I was told by a decent, nice worker in Best Buy, he couldn't stand that store, that a Sony rep told him that they were planning on leaving the U.S. market due to the requirements of the phone carriers. That was about six years ago. I wasn't surprised. In any case, I'm still using a 5iii and an LG g 8 for music. Sony phones not requiring a tool to open the sim/SD tray is a nice user friendly design.

                              YUKI93, 19 May 2024Even though I'm now into Sony phones after LG's s... moreIt's moot in most countries now. Sony is drastically limiting the countries it sells phones in. I have a 5iii. It's fine, really, too narrow, but fine. I still prefer the LGs but they were removing features toward the end. The Velvet didn't have the quad dac. That was supposed to be their mainstream model that was going to be their comeback as a major phone seller.

                                newflesh, 18 May 2024A small group of fans like gsmarena put it Even though I'm now into Sony phones after LG's smartphone exit, I still struggle with this phone. Personally speaking, there should be a middle ground between the Xperia 10 and the Xperia 5 with at least a Snapdragon 7 series SoC. Ironically, Sony planned to do such a thing with the Xperia 10 Plus Mk2 before it got cancelled to focus on 5G*.

                                  As for charging, pretty much any 20W+ charger is right choice?

                                  I got currently Official (from Samsung Warehouse) Samsung 25W GaN charger, it does have PD 3.0, POD, PPS features and current shielding, overvoltage, overcharging and overheating protections.

                                  I bought it because of standby only 5mW (!) compared to default 20mW+

                                    Power1, 18 May 2024It's not about hostility, it's about thick-headed... moreI think you're mistaken at least on what concerns bigger screens... bigger screens aren't better, at least for me and the majority of compact phones target audience, like the 10 VI. If it was possible I'd like to get a phone as small as the iPhone SE but with updated internals, of course, microSD card slot, 3.5mm jack and so on... so what you mention as better features on other phones, aren't necessarily advantadges for many if us who are interesred in compact phones like the 10 VI.

                                    Personally, I check GSM Arena's news / reviews everyday, and I rarely find anything that interests me, because nowadays 95% of the phones are quite similar in what concerns specs, at least.

                                      Some Anonymous Prson, 18 May 2024It doesn't have to come with such a high price. Yes, ... moreyou get side slot sd card + 3.5mm jack + Shutter camera button . Plus the Sony x bravia color has better than samsung / apple. The white backgroud is truly white not yellowish or greynish. Sony always win display every generation of their phone . 60hz scteen is a bummer for sony fan .. indeed.. it more expensive but that what make special and different than other.

                                        No difference between the Xperia 10 iii, iv, v or vi.
