In the light of modern discovery, Xperia 10 and Xperia 10 plus end up to what sonny call its “supper mid-range” family. Technically, this new pair is practically a direct successor to the “XA” line. However unlike the XA2 or its other variants in terms of structure, Xperia 10 and Xperia 10 plus look and feel almost Identical with the plus moniker mostly donating a few hardware changes, like a more powerful chipset, as well as the increase in size. Obviously one might term this two to be sibling pairs and mention differences as they come for this hands-on.
Xperia 10 exhibits outstanding features of Xperia 1, as a matter of fact, it has the new flavor of an extra – tall and pretty skinny panel. There are some subtle, but somewhat important differences in design compared to the Xperia 1, though. For example, the bottom chin on the Xperia 10 and 10 Plus has been shrunk down even further. nevertheless, the LCD panels have less heavy logic boards or ones that lend themselves better to “folding” and tucking away. On the flip side, the area above the panel, or “forehead” if you will, has grown noticeably compared to the Xperia 1. While not really bothersome in itself, we do find it kind of odd and surprise that the extra room didn’t go towards a bigger or more capable selfie camera, nor a beefy second speaker. Nevertheless, the Xperia 10 and 10 Plus don’t even offer a hybrid stereo setup. Let alone a dedicated top speaker.
The 3.5mm audio jack does not occupy the extra space in front of the display, we really appreciate the fact it made its way over from the Xperia family. In terms of the frame, the frame of Xperia 10 and Xperia 10 plus is purely different from that of the Xperia 1. The phone is constructed in a way that it relies on a plastic unibody shell instead of the three-piece glass “sandwich” on the Xperia 1 flagship to elucidate more the Xperia 10 and Xperia 10 plus feel quite silky to the touch if that makes any sense. The plastic resides in a quite particular niche between hard and soft which adds to a really pleasant feel.
Relating to colors, you can get Xperia 10 and Xperia 10 plus in black, silver and navy color. Pink is known to be the exclusive shade to Xperia 10 while gold serves as an exclusive shade to Xperia 10 plus. To crown it all Xperia 10 and Xperia 10 plus uses a side mounted fingerprint reader, accompanied by a separate power button. Interestingly, Xperia 10 and Xperia 10 plus have a different fingerprint reader one that is generally bigger and easier to use, Xperia 10 pair is indeed fast but in terms of accuracy we can’t really ascertain a difference between it and that of Xperia 1. In contrast, Xperia 10 and Xperia 10 plus lack dedicated sensor. Although side sense is the presence, you have to tap the actual edge before it displays.

Another important difference in the Xperia 10 and Xperia 10 plus is the location of power and volume keys, they are swapped compared to Xperia 1. In our opinion, having the power button higher on the frame makes it easier to reach, than when is at the fingerprint reader. The bottom of the Xperia 10 and Xperia 10 plus house a single bottom-firing speaker. There should eventually be an official style cover solid case with-STD-810G-516.7 rating for shock resistance, in case you need the extra protection.
Due to the similarity in design, display diagonal is the most apparent differentiating factor between the vanilla Xperia 10 and Xperia 10 plus Apart from a slight offset in the display position, telling the Xperia 10 Plus apart from the Xperia from the front is a lot more challenging, since both rock 6.5″ inch diagonal displays. That being said, the Xperia 10 Plus and its smaller sibling do restain their its self on most of the high-end goodies the Xperia 1’s panel has to offer. OLED technology gives way to LCD. There is no HDR support or extended color spaces for “Creator mode.” There is no X1 for mobile easy flow engine either. The native panel resolution is also dropped down from 4K to FullHD+ (1080 x 2520 pixels) The panel looks absolutely sharp in person, in terms of the brightness, contrast and color accuracy.
