Sony Xperia 10 Plus review

by birtanpublished on February 2, 2021

Hey what's up guys smartphone screens have been getting taller and taller with every generation and now we had the Xperia 10 plus at 21 by 9 is this actually practical and what else does the phone have to offer and well for GSM Marina and this is our experience review the Xperia 10-plus has a plastic unibody with a smooth metallic looking finish it's a nearly seamless design and definitely looks premium at first glance would this year's Xperia phones sony has gone back to its traditional blocky form factor besides the rounded sides you won't find

Any curves here the new twist is the screens ultra wide 21 by 9 aspect ratio the Xperia 10 plus is taller than pretty much any other phone on the market it can sometimes feel awkward and using this device is more of a two-handed affair the display is a 6.5 inch IPS LCD covered by Gorilla Glass 5 its bezels are quite small except for the large forehead which houses the selfie camera and notification LED Sony hopes that content will be more satisfying to watch on this widescreen sort of like going to the cinema which has the same 21 by 9 aspect ratio that sort of content isn't

Too mainstream but you can find some support on both YouTube and Netflix with a 1080p resolution in 422 PPI content looks pretty sharp on the screen contrast is good with reasonably deep blacks but colors aren't the most accurate even if you do decide to tweak them in settings the displays maximum brightness is pretty high at almost 600 Nets sunlight legibility is good you shouldn't have problems using the phone outdoors since the screen is narrower Texas scales smaller to fit especially noticeable on menus or the keyboard but one clear benefit is that

You can fit more onto the screen at once when using vertically scrolling apps on the audio front we have a single bottom firing speaker next to the USBC port it's no stereo setup but it is score an excellent mark and loudness test and it's distortion-free at max volume don't expect much bass here you can also plug in headphones with a 3.5 millimeter Jack sound quality is above average though the output is a bit on the quieter side you have 64 gigs of storage onboard the Xperia 10 plus and

It is expandable the tray opens quite easily and it fits to nano Sims in a microSD but the phone restarts every time you do this you can unlock the phone quite easily with the side mounted fingerprint reader it's separate from the power button which is above it you can also use face unlock but you do still need to swipe the screen to get in remember it's not as secure as the fingerprint the user interface of the Xperia 10 plus is pretty close to stock Android 9pi there are just a few of Sony's customizations sprinkled in swiping down on the homescreen will

Bring down the notification shade and swiping up opens the app drawer handy gestures for a phone is tall if you tap twice on the home screen you will enable one-handed mode which showing cui down into the corner and makes it easier to work with though it is harder to see everything double tapping on the bar at the edge of the screen will open side sense a customisable space for shortcuts you can also swipe down on this bar to go back you can navigate with the on-screen keys or you can use an arrow and pill setup similar to the Google pixel swipe up on the pill to open the

Task switcher press the arrow to go back swipe right on the pill to switch apps and tap on it to go home under the hood of the Xperia 10 plus is a Snapdragon 636 chipset and for gaze of RAM it's actually six gigs on the Chinese model performance isn't too bad in CPU benchmarks it beats phones with a Snapdragon 630 and in GPU tests is about on par with that there's no throttling and is a good daily performer but there are better options for mobile gaming honestly at this price we would have expected a more powerful chip there's a 3000 milliamp hour battery inside the

Xperia 10 plus actually a bit on the smaller side these days especially for a mid-range err it does a decent job though scoring an endurance rating of 78 hours and our proprietary battery tests charging is in the fastest with a 7.5 watt charger we got bundled with the phone we were able to charge from 0 to 31 percent in a half an hour the Xperia 10-plus is a dual camera setup it is a 12 megapixel F 1.8 man cam and an 8 megapixel F 2.4 telephoto can both have face detection autofocus in good light images taken with the main cam have pleasing colors in good detail

However dynamic range is quite limited and perhaps in the attempt to preserve the highlights the xperia tends to underexpose you can only turn on HDR through a toggle and manual knowledge if you opt to do this you'll get a significant improvement in dynamic range but the shots are noticeably softer zoom photos with the telephoto camera are also in 12 megapixels in spite of the 8 megapixel sensor quality is decent similar to the main cam except there's a bit less fine detail and the colors are more saturated in portrait mode the 12 megapixel shots are

Again taken with a telephoto cam so you don't need to be uncomfortably close to your subject the Xperia does a good job with subject separation and background blur but like on the zoom shots we wish there was better fine detail shots taken at night from the 10 pluses main camera or a bit of a disappointment they're generally quite soft and lack fine detail the dynamic range is also quite limited here's a zoomed telephoto shot in low-light and as you'd expect image quality isn't any better selfies on the Xperia 10 plus are taken with the 8 megapixel F 2.0 front-facing can be a

Decent with enough detail and nice skin tones with anything less than perfect lighting though there is some softness and a lot of noise there's a selfie portrait mode – edge detection isn't great and there's still a lot of noise video can be recorded in up to 4k at 30fps only the main camera is used no telephoto shooting here 4k footage is nice and detailed with pleasing colors and surprisingly good dynamic range however there are quite a few artifacts visible in areas of solid color electronic stabilization is available in both 1080p and 4k which is nice but the

1080p footage ends up smoother so that's the xperia 10-plus overall you get a bright LCD screen with a unique aspect ratio a nice fingerprint reader vanilla Android 9pi and decent battery life but for more than 400 euros we expected more from this phone a Snapdragon 636 is okay but for the same price you can find more powerful hardware plus the camera performance here is kind of disappointing and the 21 by 9 aspect ratio has its benefits but also its downsides since this phone is so tall isn't really comfortable to use one-handed the Xperia

10 plus is not a bad phone but there's a lot of competition that can offer more and at a better price if you really love the new aspect ratio then it might be worth looking into but otherwise the 10 plus is tough to recommend thanks for watching if you're interested in the full test findings of the Xperia 10 plus or want to compare it to some other phones you can stop by GSM Marina comm will leave a link in the description below see you
