Sony Xperia 10 II Review

by birtanpublished on August 17, 2020

Sony has been making phones for a while now a few years back it's sharp edges business looking smartphones were among the more popular Android devices but recently the company seemed to lose a bit of its edge the novel design of the Xperia one rebooted

Things for Sony but soon after that devices started to lose focus again today we're going to show you a phone that could bring Sony back in the game this is the review of the Sony Xperia 10 Mark 2 in the world

Ruled by notches and punch holes the Xperia 10 mark 2 stays true to what Sony calls Omni balance design where you have small symmetrical bezels on the top and the bottom of the phone but no notches or cutouts so there is nothing to spoil

The viewing experience on this gorgeous 6 inch OLED display the 21 by 9 aspect ratio makes this phone quite narrow and the top and bottom bezels are small enough to keep the phone's stylish looks when you stop staring at that display

And turn the Xperia 10 mark 2 around you find the triple camera system and an LED flash oh by the way both the front and the back of the phone use Gorilla Glass 6 adding a bit of extra toughness and protection to the overall stylish looks

The Xperia 10 mark 2 is also very lightweight for its size actually it weighs almost the same as a galaxy s 10 E or an iPhone se 2020 part of the reason is the plastic mid frame but before you frown and disappointment bear

In mind the build quality is very solid nothing squeaks or bands and it houses some good old friends from the recent past you have a 3.5 millimeter audio jack at the top and the capacitive fingerprint scanner on the right side of

The phone that also doubles as a power button take out the SIM tray on the side and you'll notice a rubber sealing and yes you guessed it right this phone is IP 68 water and dust resistant but let's get back to that

Display which is the centerpiece at Xperia Tan mark – it's a beautiful six inch OLED panel with a 1080p resolution resulting in a sharp and crisp image it's a big upgrade from the LCD screen on last year's Xperia 10 brightness is

Excellent and colors stay very accurate in the original display mode if you want some pop and saturation these standard settings will get you covered watching videos on the Xperia 10 Mark 2 is also a real treat and especially for full

Featured movies that are typically shot in the same 21 by 9 aspect ratio as the screen so you don't get any black bars on the side and because the phone is so lightweight you can comfortably hold it with one hand without getting tired

Perfect for Netflix taking a look under the hood you see that sony has opted for a mid-range chipset for the Xperia 10 mark 2 it's using the snapdragon 616 coupled with 4 gigabytes of RAM and the generous 128 gigabytes of internal

Storage and while the chipset raises some concerns about the capabilities of this phone to keep things smooth in practice there is no stutter or lag when playing demanding games like pop G or minecraft on the software side of things

The Xperia 10 mark 2 comes with Android 10 out of the box surprisingly Sony has kept things relatively simple and bloatware free which contributes to the snappiness of the phone in day-to-day use there is a nifty little feature that

Quickly splits the tall screen to take advantage of the 21 by 9 ratio when working with two apps simultaneously site sans the feature that gives you quick access to apps is also back on this phone but sadly it has not improved

Much you can still adjust some settings to make it usable but taps on the side often fail to register and the phone is narrow enough to make sight sense a bit redundant all in all the OS is quite clean for a Sony device and you find

Mostly Google stock apps which is a great thing the triple camera system on the back of the Xperia 10 mark 2 consists of a fairly common combination of shooters there is a main 12 megapixel wide-angle

Lens an 8 megapixel telephoto camera with 2 times optical zoom and an 8 megapixel ultra wide snapper in good lighting conditions the Xperia 10 mark 2 produces crisp and detailed images colors seem accurate without added pop

And dynamic range is also good there is some AI magic going on in the background as the camera app automatically detects seas and conditions now speaking of sony magic tap on an object in the viewfinder and the focus

Will stay locked on it thanks to the unique object tracking system that Sony has borrowed from its camera Department and it all actually works impressively well we should also mention that this trick works for both

Photos and videos and it is especially useful in videos to enable it simply open the camera go into settings and turn on the object tracking option keep in mind that it only works for 1080p video and not for 4k recordings night

Mode is also present here and it works wonders good news is that the phone detects when the conditions are too dark and automatically turns on night mode but you can also manually turn it on if you feel like it

Rather than brightening up shots and adding noise this feature seems to accentuate the highlights resulting in more details resolved there's definitely some image stitching going on as with night mode on you have to wait a few

Seconds before the result is ready so it's kind of on a slow side at the end of the day the camera system on the Xperia 10 mark 2 cannot quite rival the big guys and probably won't win you a Pulitzer in photography but it's

Definitely decent enough for a budget phone and will get the job done the 3600 milliamp hour battery size of the Sony Xperia 10 mark 2 doesn't inspire confidence with its pure size given the large and bright screen but our tests

Have shown that battery life is excellent action you can get a full day of heavy use on this phone easily and stretch it even further if you use it moderately the OLED display technology and the

Mid-range snapdragons 665 chipset definitely contribute to these numbers and now we've come to the best part the price the Sony Xperia 10 mark 2 is not available in the US at the moment but

Pre-orders in Europe have already started and the asking price is three hundred and sixty nine euros the phone is expected stateside soon with a price tag of around four hundred dollars and for all the bells and whistles in this

Device this price is a real bargain but keep in mind that it has strong competition in the Google pixel a series and the iPhone as II if you want something unconventional though the Xperia definitely delivers and this
