The Xperia 10 Plus is not a bad phone, anything but. It's just that there's more than one better option at the same price point, and also a lot of phones that are just as good if not better, and more affordable. It's tough to recommend at its launch price unless you're hell-bent on having one of the...

If you watch a lot of films and TV on your phone and want a good-performing phone with no notch then the Xperia 10 Plus is a decent mid-range option. There’s zero wow factor here, though.

The Sony Xperia 10 Plus brings a new form factor to the mid-range smartphone market, as the Xperia 1 does in the flagship sector.

With the extra power and the enhanced camera tech, this seems like the smarter choice between the two Xperias. Still, the price does put it in the firing line of some seriously capable rivals.

The Xperia 10 Plus is not a bad phone, anything but. It's just that there's more than one better option at the same price point, and also a lot of phones that are just as good if not better, and more affordable. It's tough to recommend at its launch price unless you're hell-bent on having one of the first 21:9 displays, be it for productivity or procrastination. Outside of this tight demographic, we don't see much appeal for the Xperia 10 Plus.

If you watch a lot of films and TV on your phone and want a good-performing phone with no notch then the Xperia 10 Plus is a decent mid-range option. There’s zero wow factor here, though. It’s also quite expensive for the performance and build quality – if you’re not fussed by the odd 21:9 aspect ratio then you should save money and get the Moto G7 Plus or much more powerful Pocophone F1 instead.

The Sony Xperia 10 Plus brings a new form factor to the mid-range smartphone market, as the Xperia 1 does in the flagship sector. The 21:9 aspect ratio is interesting, especially for those who love watching content on their mobiles. For £349, the Xperia 10 Plus certainly offers something to consider for those who want the 21:9 aspect ratio but not all the bells and whistles offered by the Xperia 1.
