The Sony Xperia 10 Plus, as its name suggests, is an enlarged (or should we say, elongated) version of the Xperia 10 whose biggest con is its middling 1.8GHz octa-core Snapdragon 636 processor , which is an awkward downgrade over its little sibling's 2.2GHz eight-core engine (It has 4GB of accompanying RAM). Additionally, we expected something more than 64GB of native memory , since some of its octa-core-powered competitors are offered in 128GB variants. This setback is nicely countered by its sizable 512GB external memory support , though.
As for its pros, the Xperia 10+ features a 6.5-inch 2520 x 1080 FHD+ display sitting on a rarely-seen (as of this specs-based Phonerated analysis) aspect ratio of 21:9 that's much-wider than the 18:9 or 19:9 solutions featured by several higher-tier large-screen models. It also touts an appreciable 12- plus 8-megapixel dual rear camera enabled for 4K-2160p video-recording, slow-motion video capture at 120fps, and hardware-level bokeh photography.
While its screen and dual-lens main cam serve as highlights to its array of pros and cons, though, the opposite can be said of its relatively humdrum 8-megapixel selfie camera , knowing that 13-megapixel selfie shooters were no longer that uncommon in the mid-range market around the time of this technical review.

This middle-class Xperia model's feature set is powered by a 3000mAh battery that's possibly more efficient versus ordinary 3000mAh cells, seeing that it is decked out with some signature power-management features from Sony, including Xperia Adaptive Charging, which promises to prevent the battery from being overworked when powering up, Battery Care, and Smart Stamina. Also joining in is a fingerprint scanner, NFC support, and a Corning Gorilla Glass 5 panel protecting its display from everyday bumps and scratches.
So, considering those pros and cons, Sony's Xperia 10 Plus sounds like a fitting choice for shoppers in search of a wide-screen, multimedia-driven mid-level Android.
