Movies are natively in 21:9 AR, and then adapted for streaming services so you can watch them in their original formats. Plus, multitasking is more easily done on this phone as there is more screen real estate to work on.

One hand manipulation is easy in this Tall phone. Just double-tap the home button and it’ll shrink the display. You can adjust the size of the display, whether larger or smaller it’s still a 21:9 AR display, just a smaller.

Power button, Fingerprint sensor and Volume Rocker

Sony’s built the Xperia 10 and Xperia 10 Plus in luxurious metal body, good even when dropped. The power button, fingerprint sensor and volume rocker on the lower portion of the phone. The fingerprint sensor is located and stand out in the middle. This makes it very easy for one handed use of the phone. The power button is above that and the volume rocker below it.

USB-C connector

Xperia 10 and 10 Plus uses a USB-C connector and not the cheaper micro USB the headphone jack. It’s at the top of the phone, and also support HiRes audio, like the more expensive Xperia 1. Sony continues to embrace Stock Android and the company has been getting better at pushing out updates faster.

Android 9 Pie out of the box and having multi-window is nice to have a video playing in the upper part of the screen and having something like Twitter in the bottom half but no quick way to swap the windows. The UI sorely needs what Samsung has had for many years’ now, – a software button – to quickly swap the windows while in multi-windows mode

Decent battery life on both smartphones at 2870mAh and 3000mAh respectively can get you through a day of work and play time. STAMINA features that these phones have can prolong the batteries up to the two-day mark. But this will delay notifications, and you will not have smartphone functionality. Quick Charge 3.0 charger will fully recharge the phone in about 90 minutes

You get similar photo quality out of both the phones even when they have different cameras installed. The Xperia 10 has a 13-megapixel main sensor with a 5-megapixel depth sensor. While the Xperia 10 Plus uses 12-megapixel and 8-megapixel cameras.

You can get good slow-motion video out of the Xperia 10 at 120fps at 720p resolution and plenty of light, ideally day light, you’re going to get some great slow-motion video. Using one of the best cameras at this price range.

The final verdict is that the Xperia 10 and Xperia 10 Plus are pretty decent smartphones, and has finally made their presence felt and offering the best value market stiff competition in the sub $500 segment.
