A compact piece that can’t be missed. Test Sony Xperia 10 II

Like last year, this year Sony is so short of me next to the spade model. This time the bag remained only a compact model, which is a bit rare today. Apart from the smaller dimensions, the Xperia 10 II is not extremely competitive in the competition and, moreover, is not fully cheap.

Sony Xperia 10 II

Sony smartphones with a single-digit designation belong to the highest, devices with a double-digit to the middle. Last year, this logic was started by the Xperia 1 and Xperia 10 and 10 Plus models. This year, the successors are marked with a number two in the name, but only for the first two changes. Plus on Wednesday, Sony this year, bet only on the Xperia 10 II model. It is an evolution of the Italian type and the Japanese character will definitely not resign from it: with the price of 10,000 crowns it is exactly among the predecessors (Xperia 10 costs nine thousand, 10 Plus eleven thousand).

Compared to a small compact model, the processor has been a bit strengthened (but it is not a drama), there is more memory and more focus, but the basic philosophy of the model is still preserved. This is a thl smartphone with a minimalist design, which, especially for customers, the day long in the view of their display. There are six inches of the Xperia 10 II to the market.

So Sony thinks that there is virtually no competition. This does not mean that you should throw yourself headlong into this model: even if it is not a bad smartphone, in terms of power / price ratio, there will definitely be less on the market, it would not be so compact pieces.

How much did he have?

Well, it’s not. Indeed, small smartphones are a thing of the past, but the Xperia 10 II has an exception of six inches in the middle class: the display should go with some cheap phones, but in this class it is the norm of 6.5 inches. In addition, Sony has for some time been on displays with an aspect ratio of 21: 9, which also applies to the Xperia 10 II. So the phone is unexpected thl, dimensions 157 x 69 x 8.2 mm I just can’t see.

By the way, the Xperia 10 was a jet thlej, in a floor plan measuring 156 x 68 mm for it, the novelty is slightly larger, even though the display remained the same, it is not clear at first glance. However, in the hand of the Xperia 10 II, we read that the bon rm of the phone (which below remains made of hardened plastic) is rounded and the phone is thus, even through the overall angular shapes of the time of Dr. The design change is also to blame. Losk Xperia 10 has a body made of one piece of plastic, this year’s model is rm and whether the new Gorilla Glass glass looks so luxurious, but at the same time it is more prone to damage and so it gets a little more tidy. But it’s not as much a side as with some other models.

So, of course, the processing and design pay off for the dimensions, even though it was definitely not a long-term effort to minimize lines. But the competition in the day, the one that does not exist, is not so much about it, there is nothing to say.

How is the equipment?

Sun, but not the Xperii 10 II brand, I’m not missing anything significant, on the other hand, we would expect at least a little better processor and RAM for your smartphone for 10,000 crowns. Not that the Snapdragon 665 and 4 GB RAM set would be lacking, but with the competition you will often get even more for less pensions (5G support somewhere). Here, Sony is of the opinion that there is not so much competition between compact smartphones and I want to pay for weak hardware.

The Android 10 phone with only minor rights from Sony and it works without any problems, but it simply won’t be on the edge of nronch games. My phone is easy to use, the water and dust resistance of IP68 can save the mobile phone from drowning, so the Xperia 10 II may not be such a bad investment. The additional equipment is quite usual: user memory with a capacity of 128 GB, the phone has two images, and a second microSD card is inserted in the second slot. There is a lack of headphone jack, and even though there is an AMOLED type display (resolution 1,080 x 2,520 pixels), the fingerprint is on the side of the frame. It doesn’t matter at all, on the contrary, we consider it to be practical and the technique works reliably.

The ripple in terms of hardware is a notified diode, which today is not a smartphone. This replaces the Always-on function, which errors here, even if the display should handle it. At the same time, there is no way to easily wake you up by tapping your phone and check the notification diode. The display as such is nevertheless perfect and belongs to the above average. The fact that it does not disturb the ties, rings and bends.

How’s the phone fot?

The Xperia 10 II received one extra eye compared to its predecessor. So there are those, the main camera with a resolution of 12 megapixels and the brightness of f / 2.0 is complemented by a wide-angle camera and double zoom in both cases with an eight-megapixel ip. The cameras are quite good, of course they have their limits and they definitely don’t have it at the peak. On the other hand, the performance is balanced and let’s say that Sony has no eyes here and only scans it: all those pieces are usable for a while and keep what you promise.

Unlike the top model Xperia 1 II, there is no hardware button or professional photo application Photo Pro, on the other hand Xperia 10 II is not missing non reim. It works at a given time for quite some time, overall it would not be visually and non photographs belong to the weak sides of the device. But in the given category he is doing quite a while.

It took a little, you need a professional application, and the focus could be dark, the Xperia 10 II is a striking step out of the series. In this way, it is true that I do not put a weakness on the other hand, on the other hand, the competition on Wednesday can be so solid. We can also read this for video recording, there is 4K resolution (30 frames per second) or Full HD at 60 frames per second. The selfie camera is thus eight megapixels and opt for good performance.

What about a vdr battery?

The Xperia 10 II has a battery with a capacity of 3,600 mAh, which in conjunction with the slightly below-average hardware pin spe a medium vdr battery. days of the first, days of sight, charged once a day will be standard, with three efforts it is possible to charge every other day. Recharging has a maximum power of 18 W, which is a good value on Wednesday, the lack of wireless charging can be forgiven.

Mm si ji podit?

If you are looking for a compact smartphone medium now, ie a phone with solid equipment, small size, but still affordable, you don’t have much choice. The Xperia 10 II with a price of CZK 9,990 is an interesting choice in such a case. Google Pixel 4a should soon appear on the market, which will be a bit better with the price (the question is, what price do the sellers use) and which is smaller, it has a smaller display (5.8 inches) and only one fok, with known software magic of Google.

The Samsung Galaxy A41, which has less memory and slightly weak hardware, now costs 8,000 crowns. Another option for a compact and well-equipped machine is the iPhone SE (2020), which comes in at 12,990 crowns and its 4.7-inch display is really small.

If you don’t care so much about the size of your phone, you have a long way to go. Realme X50 5G for 9 699 crowns offers vt display, powerful processor, 5G st support, fast charging and many other things in addition. The OnePlus Nord with a price of 11,000 crowns is similar. And hilarious, the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 Lite will offer 10,000 items more than Sony.

All of these opponents nevertheless use their eyes to sweat, and Sony is doing a little better in practice with the usability of the focus, even though your main competitor produces a little better photos. Medium, smartphones are generally packed and you can choose from a large number of pieces.
