If the idea was to draw the eyes of the Mobile World Congress in 2019 in Barcelona, no doubt Sony came into force, The Japanese company is presented at the most important phone event of the year three very different smart phones on all the other models announced at the beginning of 2019, and among them is a common feature: in the 21: 9 format screen.
We've thoroughly analyzed it Xperia 10, the inferior model of the trio phone Sony introduced at MWC, and showed us that although the concept was accurate, a little technical section left us even more. And that "more" brings – or at least turns it to do – "Plus" model of this familywho now slips into our hands to show that his last name represents something more than a larger screen.

Best of the Sony Xperia 10 Plus
Screen and Format
When I stopped using the Xperia 10 and came up my turn to go back to my personal cell phone – Pixel 2 XL, It did not take long to miss the ultra-panoramic Sony phone format, Now I have the opportunity to enjoy this concept in a terminal with a larger screen, where consuming multimedia content in its original format is even more comfortable than a 6-inch screen. This increase, however, removes the bit of a compact mobile phone that assumes Xperia 10.
It is not difficult to find convincing reasons why more and more manufacturers will choose to jump to this ratio in the following devices.
Leaving aside a few applications and games that still do not adapt to this format and show some portions of its interface, it is not difficult to find convincing reasons why more and more manufacturers can make a jump this aspect ratio in new devices. Anyway, 21: 9 allows you to continue expanding the area occupied by the screen in mobile phones of the same size, with the introduction of benefits, especially the ability to consume and create content in this format.
In addition, the phone has a rope body from most smart phones in the market with a screen size of 6.5 inches, The Xperia 10 Plus is the most convenient transfer and use terminal, although few will succeed in reaching the highest part of the panel with only one hand. For that, I'm afraid there's Xperia 10.
As far as the screen is concerned, all that is said about the panel of the cheapest model of this family also extends to this 10 Plus. However, an extra 0.5 inches should be appreciated given that we are faced with a phone that has created and created and consumed multimedia. For the rest, the resolution -Full HD + – and the technology -IPS- are held, and again highlights the definition, contrast, and viewing angle, with the right brightness levels and excellent calibration, because Sony has used us for years. As in Xperia 10, yes, we find a glass plate that tends to reflect light more than in other models, which can be difficult to see especially in the open.
I'm not thinking too much about the software part of Xperia 10 Plus, since I've already mentioned everything in this analysis in the Xperia 10 Plus analysis. Still, again again one of the points in favor Japanese brand phones, for purity, simplicity and mania to add just enough supplements.
Experience, in fact, is similar to what I could get with the Motorola Moto G7 Plus, another model that has recently gone through our analysis and whose software was also a positive aspect. As in the Californian model, we find the Xperia 10 Plus Android 9 Foot since removing the phone from the box and a security patch released in the last 60 days, as they are managed by Google's security canons.
The extra 0.5 inches of the Xperie 10 Plus screen is appreciated considering that we face the phone created and create and use multimedia.
The addition I have been using several times in this Xperia 10 Plus – unlike her younger brother an option called "Side Sense" or "Side Sensor", which allows you to configure shortcuts on one side of the screen and access them easily, by double-clicking on the vertical indicator that will be displayed at the selected end. In addition to hosting applications, it is possible to introduce switches to activate or deactivate connections, or even perform actions such as display notification boards or activation of one-handed mode. In short, the functions that make it easier to handle the phone, more than ever before, taking into account their high about 17 centimeters.
Worst of the Sony Xperia 10 Plus
Experience with Xperia 10 is loaded with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 630 processor, a chip that, despite being able to offer good results in affordable cutting phones, was not enough for a device from the category of the latest Sony model. That's why I started trying this Xperia 10 Plus with the wish so you can enjoy more fluid work, no jerks in interface and overload time thanks to the use of a slightly more powerful chip, the Snapdragon 636, with 1 GB of RAM more. I made a mistake
Generally speaking, The functionality of this Xperia 10 Plus, though far exceeds – a bit – Xperia 10, is comparable to the Nokia 7.1 model, a model I could analyze and with which this Xperia shares the processor. Phone usage slowdowns are common, especially when you open closed applications or simply perform those stored in memory that lasts several hours in the background.
Slows in using the phone are frequent.
obviously no problem with playing the latest titles available, such as Fortneet, PUBG Mobile, or the recent Grand Mountain Adventure, one of our favorite games of this first part of the year. However, it shows that the experience is still far from what we could get with the phone with a more powerful processor. And that's a problem, especially with regard to that price of the phone, at the top of the phone with much more powerful chips such as Honor 10 and Kirin 970, or Xiaomi Mi 9 with Snapdragon 855.
Within bad, at least the autonomy itself improved with respect to the Xperia 10 thanks to an extra battery of 130 mAhNow, at least, it's easy to spend the day using and reaching numbers close to 5 hours on the screen. Nothing unusual, but certainly progress.
Price and price ratio
As I mentioned in the Moto G7 Plus analysis, the conventional middle range has a big problem, and manufacturers are continuing to offer inadequate specifications at an exorbitant price, even more so that competition in the area is stronger than ever before – especially the one coming from the Great Wall country. This inconvenience not only extends but also This is clearer than ever with this Xperia 10 Plus.
For 429 euros it costs Sony Xperia 10 Plus, the market is possible to find models that surpass the latest Sony terminal of medium size in virtually all parts, and The 21: 9 phone screen leaves as the only attraction point this terminal can not be found in any other device within the same price range and I'm afraid that not everyone will be willing to put this feature before a much more powerful processor, better camera or larger battery capacity. These are just some examples of terminals that can be found at a price comparable to Xperia 10 Plus:
So are Sony Xperia 10 Plus cameras
The enhancements provided by this Xperia 10 Plus compared to the Xperia 10 also reach the photographic section. As in the lower priced model, we found a system with two sensors on the back of the phone, although in this case we are facing a 12 megapixel main camera – At position 13, with a bigger opening, accompanied by secondary sensor television 8 megapixels It offers up to 2 shutter speeds, while in the Xperia 10 secondary sensor it is only intended to capture depth information. Of course, here we will not enjoy optical image stabilization, and we will have to sign up for SteadyShot.
The software that gives life to the cameras is the same in both models so we will not find the differences out Direct access to 2X zoom that provides a secondary camera, We continue to find the panel Modes in the lower left corner, from which we will be able to provide various options and available effects such as bokeh mode or real-time filters.
What does not change is front camera 8 megapixel f / 2.0, which offers a viewing angle of 84 degrees and has a SteadyShot stabilizer. It also supports portrait mode, which is available in the mode panel as an option that differs from the bokeh main camera effect.
Finally, Xperia 10 Plus is also capable Take videos at 4K to 30fps in 16: 9 and 21: 9 formats, and stabilize them with your own Sony system, In case you want to enjoy options such as tracking objects or auto recording, we are forced reduce the resolution to 1080p.
Daily behavior, portrait and night mode
But despite improvements, the results are not much better than we could get from Xperio 10, Photos that can be recorded on the phone they are correct as long as the appropriate conditions are met and we are not facing the device in a situation that is too complex. The most visibly glue we can find, apart from the predisposition of the image processing software with something warmer than the normal tone, is a certain lack of detail in some of the recordings we have made with the phone.
Its 8 megapixel secondary sensor delivers more versatility than the Xperie 10 depth camera, although the results obtained do not reach the scope of excellence. Where it may be noted that this sensor appears in pictures with portrait mode, whose precision in defining an object in the foreground background is more accurate, besides creating more natural blur and offering better cutting due to the small increase that the camera itself makes in activating this mode of operation.
The main drawback we found when using the Xperia 10 Plus camerahowever, has little to do with the hardware and software of your photo compartment. Actually, it is poor phone performance The one he used to destroy the experience of opening a camera application, switching between different modes, and even capturing photos and videos.
Experience the Xperia 10 Plus front camera with Xperie 10 experienceAt the end of the day, we are facing the same hardware and there is no change in software. That is why it is not surprising self-portraits are very similar to those captured with the younger brother of this family: well, but without fanfare.
Record a movie
The same is true for video recording. However, it is appreciated that the stabilization is available when recording the video at the highest possible resolution, Unlike the Moto G7 Plus, the sound recorded when shooting video with the Xperia 10 Plus is much better.
Sony Xperia 10 Plus: Thinking and Final Thoughts About Andro4all
I tried Xperia 10, and its performance and autonomy disappointed me. I tried Xperia 10 Plus, and only autonomy is no longer a problem, Once again, it remains my wish to enjoy a truly enjoyable experience with the device that is letting the bet on the new concept thanks to its comfortable aspect ratio 21: 9, and all due insufficient processor for your category and a photographic section that, without obvious drawbacks, does not improve too much in relation to the most accessible model.
All listed are added a a price that exceeds 400 euros and therefore encourages Xperia 10 Plus to compete in the area of mobile phones much more powerful and fuller than the one already mentioned, makes the purchase recommendation not so simple as well as with similar performance models and a lower price of the Moto G7 Plus or Nokia 7.1.
Although it does not go best, I'm happy to know that Sony continues to give fresh ideas to the mobile phone sector, which seems to have been building up on trends in companies like Apple or Samsung for several years. This Sony Xperia 10 Plus keeps your concept, as unique as it is interesting, although other aspects of the phone do not make justice, and after trying this model and his younger brother, I become clearer that Xperia 1 can become a great candidate to be among the Best of this 2019. If you can convince all the essential aspects. Those in which Xperia 10 Plus fails.
Price and location where you can buy Sony Xperia 10 Plus
Sony Xperia 10 Plus can be purchased officially since last March in the official trade of the company, as well as in Sony's usual sales channels in each country. Its price for 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage space is 429 euros, although it is not difficult to find it with unusual sales in stores like the Amazon.
|Should I buy a Sony Xperia 10 Plus?|
|findings||Its price of over 400 euros brings the Xperia 10 Plus segment full of mobile phones with which it can not compete in terms of power or photography, and its innovative 21: 9 format remains the only attraction to its rivals. A more powerful technical part, capable of offering a good experience with the software that is already good, everything you need to become a mid-range reference model. One truly unique.|
