Sony Xperia 10 Deals

If you regularly watch films and videos on your phone, Sony thinks this is the handset for you. While its upcoming Xperia 1 may have the best screen on a smartphone ever, with 4K HDR OLED technology, this is a Full HD display, but comes in the same 21:9 aspect ratio.

This is unmistakably a mid-range phone though. It may sport that unique screen aspect ratio, but it also features a low-end chipset and some middling specs – so how does the overall package shape up?

The screen on the Xperia 10 isn’t as impressive as the one on the Xperia 1, but that’s because this is a far more affordable phone. That said, it's still something that takes you by surprise when you first see the Xperia 10 – and in a good way.

It’s a Full HD+ 6-inch screen at a 21:9 aspect ratio. That means the display is taller than on your existing smartphone, and the idea here is that when you flip it to landscape it’ll offer the optimally-sized display for watching video, viewing photos or playing games. That’s to be expected, but there’s another frustrating element to the unusual aspect ratio: the black bars mean the content on-screen isn’t in the center. There’s a thick bezel along the top of the phone, which means when video is playing it’s slightly off-center. You can see in the image below exactly what we mean:

If you’re using the phone for split-screen apps, the extra screen real estate at the top and bottom of the display will add to the experience. Looking at photos in a 21:9 aspect ratio is an enjoyable experience here too, while some games are designed for the aspect ratio, with Sony promising more will be supported soon too.Good news here is that those in the UK will also get a fingerprint scanner, which is something that’s been missing from some previous Sony phones launched there.

The camera protrudes a little from the rear of the phone, but it’s not anything that’s likely to annoy you.

It may not have the most premium design, but considering how much you’ll be spending on the Xperia 10 we’re impressed with how the phone feels in the hand.

Sony does it again

There are lots of colour choices too, including some bold options – there’s Sony’s default colours of black and silver, but you’ll also be able to get it in navy or pink.The Sony Xperia 10 is a mid-range phone that brings Sony’s flagship style and unique 21:9 aspect ratio to a phone that’s a third of the price of its upcoming Xperia 1. It’s not the best phone you can buy for this price by any means, but if you like to watch movies and TV shows on your commute it may be perfect for you.
