Sony Xperia 10 IV Review: The Best of Sony's Latest Smartphones!

Sony Xperia 10 IV Review

In the last few years, Sony has struggled to put its best foot forward as a smartphone company. While it remains one of the most recognizable brands in mobile and maintains a niche with its camera-centric smartphones, its presence in the market has diminished. In fact, when you look at how many other big names like Huawei, Samsung, and even HTC have all had their best quarters ever recently thanks to their handsets, Sony’s struggles are even more apparent. This is why we have seen not one but two new models of the flagship Xperia X series launched in the space of fewer than six months this year. The latest version is called the Xperia 10 IV, and it brings some much-needed improvements to an already solid mid-range device from Sony…

Who’s it for?

The Xperia 10 is a good choice for anyone who wants a smaller smartphone. It’s got a smaller screen than most flagship handsets, with a 6.0-inch display compared to the 6.5-inch models you see on most new flagships. It also has a single rear camera instead of the dual-lens setup you’ll find on many of these devices. Additionally, the Xperia 10 is IP68-certified for water and dust resistance, so it should survive a drop in the sink or a quick dunk in the bathtub just fine. And at just 6.9 mm thick, it’s also slimmer than most of its rivals.

What’s new?

Sony has managed to pack in plenty of new features in this latest iteration of the Xperia 10 series. There’s a new octa-core Snapdragon 695 processor and 6 GB of RAM, which promise much speedier performance than the previous model. Sony has also updated the camera experience, adding new AI-powered modes that make it easy to take great portrait shots. Finally, the Xperia 10 has a larger 5,000 mAh battery compared to the 4,500 mAh unit in its predecessor, meaning you’re less likely to run out of power before you finish the day.

Build and Design

Sony has always done an excellent job with its designs, even though its phones are often overshadowed by the likes of Samsung, Huawei, and Apple. That said, the Xperia 10’s aesthetic may be the best yet from the company. It features a curved glass back and a metal frame, while the colors you can pick it up in include black, blue, red, and silver. The device is IP68-certified for water and dust resistance, making it durable enough to survive a quick dunk or a drop in the sink. The fingerprint sensor sits on the side of the device, while the power button and volume rocker sit on the right side. The device has a dedicated shutter button on the left side you can use to take pictures.

Sony Xperia 10 IV Specs

The Xperia 10 packs some impressive hardware for its price. It has 6 GB of RAM and either 64 or 128 GB of internal storage, which can be expanded using a microSD card. The device has a 6.0-inch FHD+ display and a single rear camera that supports 4K video recording. It also has a 5,000 mAh battery and a Qualcomm SM6375 Snapdragon 695 5G (6 nm).

Sony XR Camera: Not Just a Great Name!

Sony has long been known for its cameras, and the Xperia 10 is no exception. It’s powered by Sony’s intelligent scene recognition engine that helps it detect the best conditions for taking each shot. It also packs in Sony’s Super Steady video mode, which is designed to keep your videos nice and smooth. The Xperia 10 features with Triple camera a 12 MP (wide) camera and an 8 MP telephoto camera and an 8 MP, ultrawide setup on the rear. This means you can get both a standard shot and a close-up shot simultaneously. There’s also a single 8 MP front-facing Wide selfie camera that comes with a number of different modes, including one that uses artificial intelligence to detect your face shape and automatically kicks in what Sony calls “beautification” mode.

Battery Life and Charging - The Good and Bad

Since the Xperia 10 has a larger battery than its predecessor, you’d expect better battery life from the device. In our tests, we found that it lasted a little over 163 hours on average. That’s not bad, but it’s not the best we’ve seen either. You can expect it to last a full day if you’re a lighter user, but you might need to charge it before you go to bed if you’re a heavier user. This device also supports Fast charging 21W, which means that you can charge up to 50% of the battery in just 20 minutes.

Bottom line

The Sony Xperia 10 is a great mid-range option for anyone who wants something smaller and doesn’t mind the lack of a dual-lens camera. It’s also got an excellent design and a host of new features, such as an upgraded processor and a more capable camera. While the battery life could be better, overall this is a great handset, and it’s definitely Sony’s best device in a while. If you’re looking to buy a new smartphone and want something from a trusted brand, then you could do a lot worse than the Sony Xperia 10. It’s a solid device with plenty of great features, and for a mid-range device, it’s pretty affordable too.
