Sony Xperia 10 - User Reviews

  • Go and check this one - Xperia 1 ;)

  • not again Sony F2.0 is giving me bad video and photos on nights out. When will Sony drop F 1.9 or 1.8 for photos.

  • endurance rating 65hours? ffs sony

  • I have bought new xz premium for 260€

  • At 300 euro this is great, because so many phone that using 4k display are none expected Sony and 630 using 4K camera that also insane... Actually in my opinions this is the compact version of Xperia 1

  • Does this phone have great audio quality via 3.5 mm jack on headphones like sony Z3 had or it doesn't, because on the official site it has high-resolution audio?

  • 2870 mah for 300 euro = no

  • Funny because Helio P22 has same cores and smaller node which means in theory this should suck power faster than them simply just using the Helio P22... The GPU may be a bit faster tough... :S

  • I bought it and had it for 72 hours and returned it again. In my opinion it was one of the worst xperia phones i had. I have the Xz2 and before that xperia X and many other xperias and never had an issue. The problem with xperia 10 is that it has older hardware, hardware that belongs to 2015 or 2016, the wifi chip or antenna is very weak and as soon as i cover the device with my hand the wifi connection disconnects or becomes extremely weak even if I'm a few feet away from the router. It has some software issues as well, specially with play store when you download almost any app it gets stuck at 99% or just keeps saying dowload pending even thought there are no ongoing downloads elsewhere. The only solution that worked 50% of the time, is to clear data in the android stock download manager then restart the device and then it will work for a few mins than the same issue appears again. It even did it while updating the pre-installed apps. I also tried resetting the phone and made sure that it had the latest Android update but still it had the same issue. The phone is overall laggy and slow. I don't recommend anyone to buy it.

  • That's true..

  • That screen and screen ratio looks like shit.

  • Actually... Htc, Lg and Sony announced long time ago, they can't fight against chinese agressive deals, because they don't have same type of business. It's really hard for any brand to fight a company which has minimal profit margins or even losing money with every cellphone sold. Samsung is probably the only brand who has a chance since they have a lot of money and infrastructure behind them. People don't understand why are all those big names so expensive and why are all chinese phones much cheaper. People think it's the greed of branded companies. It's not just greed. You see.. world has never heard for all those chinese brands until Huawei reaches smartphone business in 2010. They could have all the best inside their phones but they were lacking of brand recognition and trust was building slowly. They had to somehow attract their customers so they choosed to present their phones much cheaper than the competition. Strategy absolutley work especially for emerging markets such as India. India is very very big market. But here's the problem. Indians don't have much money. They are searching for the best value for their money. They are not interested in way how chinese brands do business, they just want a best deal. Problem is that India has big taxes on import products, so when brands like Sony presents new cellphone, because of those taxes way expensier than in rest of the world making them even less of a choice to buy. If this trend continues, there will be no more non-chinese brands to choose. But in the same way as we see OnePlus and Huawei prices goes higher every year for their top models, it's pretty clear someone new (probably chinese) will come to offer cheaper devices than we used to from Xiaomi or Zte right now.

  • Joke's on you. The forehead on the XZ1 is bigger than on the Xperia 10. :D

  • In Bosnia xperia xz2 cost 299€, 6 gb ram, 64 gb. Xperia 10 cost 249€, why even look other phone if you can buy xz2 for that price.

  • Qualcomm SDM630 Snapdragon 630 (14 nm) ahm... My XZ1 is faster than this overpriced ugly looker....I bet a plane could land on that forehead

  • If youcall those crappy device, good. Well, you for sure never had a good device.

  • why there no front logo ?

  • What is there to miss? Especially with sony, pricing their devices closer to 800 and up euros with lesser or even capabilities than the competition. Chinese companies with silly names make better ones with half the price, mod the things with custom roms and gcams and they're seas ahead. Sony's been driven out almost completely, they should learn from it and adapt if they want to stay in the business. X10 is atleast quite reasonably priced, but still there are better options for the same price.

  • Oh, i miss the days when there were actuall brands that made devices. Now all you read is: xiaomi mi, redmi, oppo moppo, toco, froco, giuoco and boco. And the new commers, gibaca, motaca loco, dudopon, jimbo and so on. Thos days before were actuall brands that invested time and money and innovated, brands that had a name and a reason to exist.

  • You are right, but Nokia X71 kinda kills this device in every aspekt, from build to guts. Sony really needs to be carefull when they price their devices, and stop using plasic frames. Plastic back does not bother, but plastic frame, especially sony, kills it's structure at it's thiness.

  • Why 21:9? It looks like a tv remote control. How long my thumb should be to cover the screen? Too bad they ditched the compacts.

  • Mi a2 lite launched with half the price than this phone. Now it's 1/4 the price. So no comparaison

  • So don't support Sony. That's it. But phones that would satisfy your needs.

  • All Sony have gyroscope. SteadyShot uses it

  • Last year Xiaomi made Mi A2 Lite using SD625 , from 2016.

  • It feels solid, sturdy. I think the XA2 has a more premium feel to it, but Xperia does feel quite good.

  • I tried it in a store yesterday. It felt well made and it looked really good. I also don't mind plastic if it doesn't feel too thin and it makes prices a lot easier to swallow.

  • How's the build quality? I don't mind that it's plastic, I actually prefer it, I'm asking more for the feel and how well put together it feels.

  • 2 things: 1: "Fools in Japan" aren't obsessed with processors, RAM, and price as you are. They prefer quality, not just the latest processor. 2: This phone isn't actually sold in Japan, none of these midrange and lowend offerings from Sony are.

  • I've tried this phone in a store. It's quite unusual, but comfortable to hold an use with one thumb. Sony implemeted nice software tricks for that. Like Samsung's swipe down to bring down status bar etc. So you don't have to stretch your thumb all the way to the top of the phone. Performance was snappy. SD 630 is quite good, but maybe I'm just used to it from ym current Xperia XA2. I've tried the camera. It's solid, nothing spectacular. I couldn't test the battery, but I've tried the phone for soild half a hour and battery percentage went down 7%.

  • 2019 and still using a 1 yr old SD630 SoC priced at almost $400? Only fools in Japan buys this phone.

  • i dont know whats the problem Sony with battery !

  • The other commenters are right. Who is sony trying to fool? The only person I see buying this is someone who will only buy Japanese phones. The price is far too much for the specs. You can get a phone with 128GB internal, 4000 mAh, 19.5:9 ratio and SD plus dual sim (not SD plus single sim or dual sim but no SD) for 250-300 EUR, instead of paying 350 for this phone. It's sad what Sony has come to. If it really isn't profitable for them to sell phones in Europe, they should consider ceasing to do so. A shame because I love their unique square designs and crazy color schemes.

  • in a era of big batt here's come sony with 2.8k mah

  • Missing a lot of features in this mid range deal, even a gyro would do much to add a little further appeal If Sony really wants better sales and credence in the smartphone field it needs to release a series of non commercial prototypes into the hands of random real world critics, producers and enthusiasts to give them the real world feedback they potentially need, that's something no other supposed Industry leader would even dream of but I digress, from the grassroots you always have the seed.. The reality of what's possible is being consistently hindered by the desire for exorbitant profit at the lowest denominal cost and it always does so at a loss for what is offered.

  • Waited for more than 4 years expecting good model. I now understood Sony is not worth and completly got fed up with their ugly designs and unworthy prices with outdated hardware. Even those so called cinematic phones are not yet released. Cheap plastics with high prices and cheating with outdated hard wares. Got an iphone which got standards and good offers. Sony u lost your fans. Bye bye.

  • Well-said Tameer316. I had owned 4 Xperias (and sold all)- its like designers/Sony don't really use their phones. 😂 Offering lower specs for very high prices (they recovered from that in 2015 but doing it again)

  • Customers will never be happy. They will satisfy you and there will be someone else to complain. Rinse, repeat.

  • I Don't Know why Sony is careless about his Customers. They are not listening what customers wants. First of all they should fire or terminate the marketing manager of his Company. Because they don't know how show new devices or products in the world. They never advertise there products like Samsung, Huwaie, Nokia, Oppo, ViVo Etc. They Never Advertise its products. Thats why Sony is Going down and Down. In My Country Pakistan. No Knows about Sony Phones. This Is Shame for Sony Company.

  • Bad Battery Lite...

  • They expect how much and its not even water-proofed? O3O

  • Considering materials used (cheap plastic is a cheap plastic whatever Sony calls it) and hardware components (SD630, 3 Gb RAM, no OIS, small battery in not so thin body etc), this is 199 USD device. Ok, add 50 USD for brand name. So in total 250 USD, but no more than that. Sony is in financial trouble and tries to save every penny on materials and hardware, but doesn't understand that doing so only digging its own grave. P.S. My soon 2 years old middle range Xperia X Compact had SD 650 and battery life much better than Xperia 10...

  • 2 hours of that is screen-on-time and 1 hours is talk time. You'll get at least 8 hours of continuous screen time. Not that bad to be completely honest.

  • Small sensor with no OIS and small aperture is a combo for terrible low light shots.

  • i still dont like round shape screen edge because i feel as if it breaks easily.. but the worst thing for that phone is 65h endurance time.. seems cant finish a day

  • Sony shot it self in the foot last year for not advertising enough for its xperia mobile phones so Samsung & Iphone took advantage killing all hope for Sony to sell anything and closing its local stores across Australia country wide.

  • This phone will not release in southeast asia and australia? Big disapointed.....

  • So this phone is for films and I want to put 2k or 4k on by USB 2.0!!! cmon Sony. Headphone jack???

  • Doubtful about the battery !!!

  • sony nostalgia 10 not xperia 10 for the forehead.

  • Because the f value takes lots of things to be considered. Size of module, how many degrees lenses have, sensor size etc ....

  • why do Sony keep doing f2.0 it is too dark in clubs,,well my z5 was at 2.0 and poor audio output in volume again and again. ?Had Z5 for years but had to go to another company(not apple) but do love xperias. every time went to event it give me a little video to keep that the Sony made itself from video and stills.

  • In all contries you can buy a Pocophone on a verry good price. :)

  • 16:9 won't come back. It'll either be 18:9 or higher. And 636 isn't much faster than 630. These two should've come with 660 or 670 instead imo

  • The live is not perfect my friend.

  • Can we go back to 16:9, guys? And why the outdated Snapdragon 630? The Snapdragon 636 would be much faster (~40%) and more efficient (~20%) and much more recent.

  • Boooo no ultra wide camera. apart from that seems ok, nice to see sony finally breaking the mould abit.

  • The problem is that I like this phone, but not its price. For its price in my country I can buy Pocophone which is better in everything but design. It is hard for me to pick a phone just for its design. Xperia 10 will be a perfect buy if it costs twice less, around 200 euro max.

  • This is hands-on review, i.e. first impressions. It is not a full review with details about camera, performance, battery etc.

  • digital marketer

  • And what about compaeing this to some phones at the same price? At this price you can get mi 9se or samsung a50 which is way better they have better performance better display bigger batteries (they also have better optimization) better placement for the fingerprint mi 9se has gg5 and way better and more versatile cameras This phone does not even have gyroscope!!!!! Xperia 10 has small battery very poor cameras and too slow performance You need to admit it sony is not good at making smartphones

  • It's already there. Scroll down for the video or click

  • When will the review for this phone be ready? GSM Arena wrote about it a week ago. I am eager to see it. GSM Arena, please state a date when it will be ready.

  • If it has Google cast in specs, it most definitely has DLNA also

  • Agreed, this is definitely a better buy than some alike Huawei P Smart, or Xiaomis, that cost about 250 euros, etc... for 100 euro more everything on this is just better: better cameras, features, hi res sound, GGlass5, bt 5, better screen, quickcharge 3, battery protection, USB C, etc... This is a very good deal midranger. Wish only it had stereo speakers too, darn...

  • Yes... Many phones from xiaomi with micro usb, cheaper screen, worse audio than Xperia E3, highest SAR values, gorilla glass 3 and battery that loses 50% after 17 months.. Great deal.

  • A fast simple review of the phone for the people who wants to buy it or maybe rushing on it.

  • the chipset is the biggest draw back of them all... seriously 630/646?? Seriously? When xiaomi gets 660 for a bit more than half the 10 plus price ...

  • This is the sucessor of the XA2 probably, why wouldn't it have a headphone jack? The Xperia 1 doesn't have one. And based on the rest on your sentence, you're in delusion if you think this phone is good, 2870 mAh battery with a 6" display, huge forehead, SD 630 for 350 euros? LOLOLOL. For that price I could probably buy two Redmi Note 7. Bruh.

  • Because just like LG and HTC people at Sony are living in the past (2010-2015 era) when Chinese companies didn't really exist outside China, so they havent adapted and behave like Huawei or Xiaomi dont exist. Thats why LG tried to sell SD450 phone for 400€ in here Finland... of course no one bought it.

  • I just don't get it why sony refuse to adapt to the market and competitors. Mediocre battery and processor

  • With its price and competition, it should have been at least with a SD 636 chipset.

  • Pop up, slider, notch and hole are ridiculously ugly.

  • This is not zen omni balance,we can see the bottom bezel is cut off. Sony breaks their rules about omni balanace design, better to make full display with pop up cameras like chinese OEMs

  • I wonder why latest mid range sony mobile not include DLNA support while the old mid range have DLNA support like Xperia M4 aqua and other. why Sony put this features only for high end mobile ??

  • This phone looks amazing, but I guess the biggest disappointment will be the battery life. I wish it was at least 4000 mah. Otherwise I watched some videos on youtube with people holding the phone and despite its length it looks handy due to its smaller width.

  • Nope. This camera placement is much better because even you take a shot in landscape posture your finger won't block the cameras unlike those with extra camera sensor will have more chance to block the camera by your fingers. If you know what design will forever nice then it is symmetry, as you can see the flash camera sensor the NFC and Sony logo, all line up at the center, it is symmetry arrangement will looks forever nice.

  • Its price makes me sad even you can get better spec with Samsung in the same price. Thats how Sony will meet the end.

  • This makes the L3 look like a good offer... O3O

  • Why not buy the 2 year old phone XV Premium instead, it is thinner have dust/water proof. Got bigger battery, better resolution on the screen and a better camera... This mobile is just a trick to sell "a new" phone that is not new when one looks at the specifications

  • At least 3300mah battery, Sony still doing what they like only without concern consumer's needs.

  • WOW a 2870 battery with a snapdragon 630 And FHD+ screen 6.0P all that for 350 euro :o lol who gonna buy that crap

  • It can also record 4K videos

  • WOW such battery, very last

  • Their website says mettalic finish ... no plastic

  • i really dont know which weed using sony designer while its come to design the phone model...…..i m awiting for good design in sony phone for long time.

  • The horizontal doble camera bump placement in the back looks really ugly. It looks like a pig's nose

  • Sony, if you cut that phone's height and price on half and is still working I'm definitely buying it (I won't care if you are gonna call it xperia 5 or xpreia 10 compact). Just letting you know...

  • Finally, the headphone connection is back again, you're cool. Also fingerprint reader in its place again, good . I will definitely buy this smartphone. I love sony.

  • sexy phone, i hope the audio quality is good, not like the last ones from sony. @GSMARENA please do a full review, thanks!

  • Will it be available in India..? Any Soon..?

  • I just can't believe! I can't get a phone with all US and EU 4G/LTE bands! Even more, band 71 totally missing.

  • 350 euros for Snapdragon 630? No,no,no.

  • I like the fact that there are some bezels, no notches and holes, the fingerprint reader is on the side, it's only 68mm wide and the best part is the four corners of the screen are not curved. But after using an Xperia for a week last year, did not like the near stock Android and the camera. And this case, just not sure of that height. Guess this also means there will be no Compact?

  • midrange phones must have 4000 or more than 4000 even samsung notice that with galaxy m20 & m30 with 5000mah

  • maybe much better go for sony L3 with 3300mah :)

  • yeah! I think also Sony has a technology even it has only 2870mah it also can last a day

  • I just notice even it has a 2160p /13MP still doesn't perform well in terms of quality of the camera SAD!

  • wow why do I sense that nobody will buy this because of the battery alone, I mean don't get me started on the specs and so on. Sony stop wasting money and close down your phone department for good.

  • OMG sony never will change! august c3...2500mah may c4....2600mah august c5...2930mah now xperia 10....2870 xperia 10 plus...3000

  • Try energizer's new phone with 18k mah.

  • 9 times out of 10 companies disappoint with their battery life (or lack of one). I'm sure they do it on purpose to piss us all off!

  • I hope you were being ironic :) ;)

  • ...nice battery

  • high price and mediocre SoC lead this dead on arrival

  • Are you sure? Because the 1900 mAh white Eneloops i use for my flashes last much much much longer than ANY other batteries rated as 2400, 2500, 2700, 3000 mAh ... Is it possible that it's not just about what it's written on them?

  • Newsflash: You cant judge battery life by looking at its capacity....

  • I was waiting for these new phones from Sony but disappointed with the battery capacity. This phone wont last for even a day..

  • Why are they using a two year old processor?

  • 6" 2870mah, no dedicated sd slot like the XA's, lastly overpriced..... RIP SOny you deserve to close your incompetent mobile division.

  • 2870mah? no, just no sony. this wont last even a day of usage

  • I feel the same! I've always had issues with my samsung smartphone and ios does'nt work with me. I also had broken screens but not with my Sony XA after two years and my battery is still 40% when i get home from work!

  • So sad

  • i love sony phones! job well done! i will buy this one soon! more power sony!

  • As a long-time Xperia user what i loved about the Xperia 10 was: 1. Immediate availability in the UK 2. £299 price tag 3. Great mid-range SoC platform 4. Fast charging battery 5. Android P out-of-the-box What could be better or included: 1. A higher capacity battery of 3000mAh & above (current capacity is very questionable) 2. f.20 lens may not be good for low-light photography 3. Basic IP rating (IP5x or IP6x) 4. 4GB of RAM of LPDDR4x dual-channel/dual-frequency 5. 3CA (carrier aggregation) instead of only 2CA 6. Dual front-firing amplified speakers with bass 7. Better implementation of Slide Sense (i,.e. faster performance & customisation) 8. Top border could be more slimmer No information given on the website or during the MWC presentation: Any Dual front or dual bottom speakers? Any Water resistance? What about the updates? Support for third-party earphones with Apt-X? As it stands i would pick this over the Moto G7/G7 PLus and Galaxy A50 phones.

  • I was waiting for a new COMPACT. Got the xz2 Comapct now.

  • Love the plain and sleek design but small battery and no wireless charging makes it a bit meh in 2019

  • Xaxaxa the battery is terrible, no Sony thanks is not crazy to buy this phone.

  • Old CPU and GPU poor camera and ugly back. Man the design is very boring so i rather stops here than dehonesting it even more.

  • Just when i thought ill return to sony. Sd630+2.8kma batt? I hate to say but you will sink sony.

  • that's a lie, they have the best battery management and are second to none

  • Last year XA2 is better

  • SD630? is there any new phone that still using this chipset?

  • hmm.. interesting.. i'm curious about the battery capacity.. can it handle 6" display? what i know is sony have good battery management below iphone..

  • This is why Sony Mobile loses money and market share year after year. Sad but true.

  • It's just weird.. Xa2 had 3300 mah battery why would they put smaller this time and it's even bigger phone.. And I'd rather have smaller top one bottom bezzel than that weird thing up there

  • 2870 mAh xD :D that will be such a flop. What were they thinking?

  • The battery really should been 4000mAh since Sony always want to demand a premium... *3*

  • This might Be Xperia L3...

  • Still waiting and excited for it, hopes that they dont increase the pricing

  • Xa1

  • Probably February like last year?

  • more long so bad

  • I heard that, at this year's mobile world Congress, Sony will showcase multiple models. I am sad to hear that XA3 supposedly comes with 4GB ram... yet, I guess that may be region dependent (?) . Sony if you are listening: release 6GB ram versions of all your 2019 handsets !

  • CES is over.. Still not announced yet..

  • Is 2019 were is the jyro sensor!?

  • It's not a good idea to pick these smartphone in 2019. You will be bored in few month but if it's economic reason you should pick XA1. In other way just wait for this XA3 like me for replace my XA

  • Thanks a lot

  • xa1

  • Guys I need advices from you which one should I pick between XA1 & L2?

  • sony you should give minimum snapdragon-710 in this phone.

  • I know right!? Sony has nice looking phones but their chipset is often 1 step behind.

  • sd660?! IMO, it’s too late (700 series is true though)

  • give it IP rating

  • when it will launch

  • 9:4 is 18:8 not 18:9 the popular ratio. 18:8 is the same thing as 20.2:9

  • The screen measures 252x567px in the photo, which is exactly 9:4.

  • I like this design. Please add some features Like 1020p@240fps and 1020p@480fps slow motion. 5x zoom like mate 20 pro. Sound like iPhones. Price under 60 thousand.

  • I don't believe those images are the real thing. They feel off and some things don't seem right. That aspect ratio is one thing, then there's the Sony logo on the back which sony has never done, the fingerprint scanner seems to be positioned at the left again (would that mean they go back to having no fingerprint scanner in the US?), the power and volume buttons look too small... it just doesn't fit the profile.

  • did a little experiment and based on the rendered leaked images the screen has an 20.1:9 ratio

  • yeah i was thinking the same, what are they trying to achieve with that? is 18:9 not thin enough? how are apps even going to be displayed if they all have 18:9 design? with black bars top and bottom?

  • Sony don't be greedy like samsung ad some sensors! If this is a true midrange phone need gyro!!!

  • It should not more than 300USD

  • good thing that this phone has lesser bezels than its siblings

  • 155.7mm height? That's like 10mm taller than the Galaxy S9. I guess the aspect ratio has to be 21:9?

  • This back is a abomination sony , chase it away with torches and pitchforks .

  • Competition is bad on GSM Sony feeds!!

  • Only XA1 has touch issues, XA1 ultra and XA1 plus doesnt because its screen panel has different build stop spreading false info, also xa2 series doesnt have touch issues

  • It wasnt me for sure. I never used a jack and earbuds. Every of my phone i had and got an earphones with it they remained packed sealed and never used.

  • Well even a phone without IP68 is at least ssplash resistant with sealed battery. Also when you have sealed battery it cant afloat like baloon and push back cover of the phone away. About jack well its difficult i will always says its bad old ancient tech because in my opinion really is. Here i will not find many people who will follow my decision.

  • Well, it seem you have gone further contradicting yourself there's no point arguing anymore it seem I still remember sometimes ago when you hating on sealed battery and 3.5mm jack removal

  • Except when your mobile phone runs out of battery, you can just hook it up to a powerbank that you can carry everywhere. Unless you say you'll also charge your Bluetooth headphones to a powerbank while using it, which would absolutely defeat the purpose of it being wireless. The option for Bluetooth AND wired earphones is still the most ideal. It's not like you lose the Bluetooth option if there's a 3.5mm jack. (different guy)

  • I feel like the presence of a headphone jack doesn't, in any way, affect "outstanding Bluetooth earphones" performance. It's not like it's one or the other. If there's a 3.5mm jack, then you can use wired headphones/earphones when your Bluetooth ones run out of juice. So having it gives you the best of both worlds. (Unless you mean you'll hook up your empty Bluetooth earphones to the powerbank you carry around, which would defeat the whole purpose of it being wireless.) I agree that sealed battery is great for ingress protection. But if a phone doesn't have any ip certification rating, then I think there's really not much point in having a sealed battery. Sealed batteries are part of the ploy for planned obsolescence, which most people are apparently ok with. (by the way, different guy)

  • Same for smartwatches 18 hours of battery life for price of 400 - 1000 euros its crazy. And there is nothing wrong with sealed battery its great for watter resistance bzut you never understand. No jack is great for outstanding bluetooth earphones compared to tons of horrible wired options.

  • Man Emooji is a camera and yes back of my phone is curved a little which i solved with a good book case but Note9 have curved front. As is very fragile and expensive. By the way Moto X4 dont have úure glass compared to Note 9. And Sony with itts camera position looks very horrible.

  • Hmm.. So Smartphones who running out the battery because of data & communication connection is awkward than desk phone.. Mm okay.. Wkwk

  • Bt headsets that cannot work bec they ran out of charge are more awkward than wired headsets. With replaceable wires. Keep feeding landfills with your sealed battery shit.

  • @brandon.buck XA1 yes, I own XA2. No screen issues this time.

  • Saying note 9 ugly for the fragile glass is a bit hypocrisy for one who use moto x4 with also curved glass And i don't want to hear an ugly back design complaint from one who has protrude emoji at the back of their phone

  • too bad it will probably be riddled with os issues and screen glitches just like the previous 2

  • Wow i will get this one .It looks cool.

  • +1000. Add to this 68mm for a 5.9" and great battery

  • Getting bored with nowadays smartphone design. Finally, one good reason to come back to Sony.

  • WT the XA is the only series which I was hoping to get a small compact phone so disappointed about this

  • Man that huge camera bump make my phone unique it looks like OWL. In a well fashioned book case my Moto X4 is beautifull. The bezzels are really thin so i won t care and there is nothing wrong with 3000 mAh battery in a 5 inch phone.

  • So, this is an ugly phone, but you're using an moto x4 with its huge camera hump, old fashioned bezels, and small battery. It seems that beauty is just personal taste and not a fact.

  • Well even a Sony is made in china as i heard and know to reduce cost of construction theses phones. And i definitely like china phones. But having this china phone for a Sony price which will be 600 euros including free earphones for Sony price of 300+ well no thanks. my Razer Kraken for 50 are great enough. And my Moto X4 does same tricks as this phone for a much less in price.

  • my collection completed(^-^)

  • Then this is clearly not the phone for you. This model has all the ancient features you just mentioned, useful features and a display with small bezels that makes it perfect for me and many others. You should check some Chinese phones with super trendy design.

  • If the width is right then the screen is 5,5". Believing the render is also right, the hight must be something around ~145mm. Would be a great measurement in my eyes.

  • what

  • I hope your words are okay.

  • The XA2 has slow motion, the XA3 will most likely have it too.

  • The leaks are probably fake and fan made renders

  • Well soon or later everybody will have or use notch so i dont care. Tere are things we have to ascend over them such as No SD card slot because in 128, 256 or 512 GB is really not needed. Such as jack which in present bluetooth and wireless technology and era is really ancient and looks awkward. And so on. There are many examples.

  • Well back of the phone looks very sorry. Note 9 same. Ugly fragile curved design not very promising. Thus to my opinion. And back of this sony looks like LG lines but here s the flash over the camera not under. Looks like alien.

  • The specs like camera, CPU, battery etc are all pure speculations by GSMArena, even the screen is odd compared to phone dimensions.

  • I agree I still got the Xperia XA and I didn't change for the XA2 because they are similar but this one is a great revolution in the XA segment !! 5.9" and 155 X 68.3mm, awesome for one hand user. Waiting is announcement and price

  • IP 65 or 68?

  • If the price is right this is a damn good device! O3O

  • Selfie Cam is really bad. f/2.4 seriously? Yet Sony is the Number 1 Supplier for Cams in smartphone business...

  • no ois? :(

  • Fujifilm XA3 has a way better camera

  • Why those side bezels?

  • IKR, I just love Sony's side-mounted fingerprint readers, very clever and practical design.

  • FINALLY, a phone that ACTUALLY stands out from the rest of the crowd! You won't see none of that typical "bezel-less", "notched", "iPhone X-esque" design on here...... which is good if you still haven't realized it yet (promotes diversity). And best of all, they didn't go all stingy and decide to remove the headphone jack again. Sony has finally went back to its roots again, but probably not for long.

  • lol note 9 ugly? say notch lover xd

  • Says the notch lover haha

  • sony shud have stick to 5.2" screen😴

  • it must be compact in hand,, width perfect...finally sony thinking hands on

  • IMO this is a better design compared to XA2 and XA3 lineup, reason for that is due to the fp sensor and the placement of the back cam which is a bit weird tho, LoL and no notch above all with 3.5 jack, I'm a bit of old school so this is my thing

  • ultra and plus will be but battery its the PB, more then 5k

  • yes, another side mounted fingeprint sensor

  • Sony finally knows what is battery life, but 3500+mAh-ish is abit we want 4000mAh-ish at least.

  • What's so bad looking about the Note 9 and thus XA3

  • Who care about the back cover? You're not gonna look at it 24/7. Note 9 users didn't complained about their hideous back cover.

  • I hope that back camera has square design like in note 9. But over all design is refreshing. I hate notch. Its nice to see that sony's did not follow the notch trend just to make the display have high percentage to body ratio and not copying apple design.

  • Wow I LOVE that design! Sony's design team is on a roll!

  • very very bad 155.7 x 68.3 x 8.4 mm (6.13 x 2.69 x 0.33 in)

  • Sorry but China is the most copy infringe country for copying and taking other countries Intell property. Also Sony invents nots copies. Hehehe

  • I am so hoping there will be an Ultra version of this. FINALLY, a Mi Max 3 style device that people in the U.S. NOT on Cricket can use.

  • there is something wrong. This phone can't has 68 mm width. For example, mate 10 lite is 5.9 inch too, it's height is 156.2, this phone's height 155.7 everything's still normal but mate 10 lite's width is 75.2, XA3's 68! This photo is wrong or this measures ar wrong. And you look carefully this phone is not 18:9. İt look like 20:9 or 21:9. I say again, there is something wrong, maybe in picture or maybe in measures.

  • Pixel 3 xl, yes it's ugly af Note 9 no, it's not and also this xa3 phone What else ugly? Every xiaomi redmi phone and the mi 8(the main one, not the midranger)

  • I really like the original place of sonys fingerprint on the side. Thats what sony fans loved.. Dont follow the china brands design.. Coz sony fans, love what original sonys design. ^^

  • exactly.screen is too tall for back is ugly as hell.i hope sony does make it just like xa2 and trim its upper and lower bezzels,and thats it

  • Well i thought Pixel XL3 along wth Note 9 are the most ugly phones of 2018. But Sony is a winner. This so called phone looks a lot worse than siemens xelibri lines or Toshiba G450.

  • Oh WOW!!! It's a bit weird when you look at that dual camera on the back but it still looks nice. And NO NOTCH !!! Sony kept it real. I only wonder... Would they take my grandma's golden tooth as a method of payment ?

  • Yes yes yes....... Very nice and full New look. But need some features.. Slow motion.. I have a great idea about camera. Contact me.

  • Yes.. yes.. yes... Sony good job. This is a full New and good look.

  • Perhaps thats why SONY closed Tablet division.

  • Even 145cm height for a 5.5" screen would've done it for me but apparently, vanilla versions will now have basically 6" screens. Even the Samsung A6s will be the same way. So I'm guessing the Ultra version will be 6.99" and the Plus version somewhere in the middle. I really don't get why phones are now getting closer to tablet size. Most phones no longer fit in regular pockets.

  • Impossible dimensions. Onleaks is usually right in phone dimensions but gets the screen wrong. 5.9" 18:9 screen has a width of ~67mm, that means 0.65mm bezel on each size that's impossible. The screen proportions look too tall maybe even 21:9!

  • Take my money and give me this xa3

  • i dont know. back design is a joke but dimension is great.
