Sony Xperia 10 II comes with a video-friendly widescreen with an OLED display that makes it quite a unique smartphone. Here is the complete Sony Xperia 10 II Review to check before buying

A Phone Featuring Unique Display 

The Sony Xperia 10 II is an affordable phone with several stunning features including a 6-inch FHD+ OLED screen. The display of the phone tends to be dedicated to streaming. Combined with the FDH+ resolution and OLED display, the screen results in nice sharp pictures and clear videos. 

The OLED tech is the key to bring bright colors, like Sony’s customary icy cool color. Either way, it provides enough brightness to the users, still missing extra level brightness for outdoor conditions. 

It particularly supports the 21:9 aspect ratio, keeping streaming services in mind, a way better than other regular phones. Sony Xperia 10 II review suggested that the phone has a wider bezel at the top. The company has packed the front camera into the bezel, rather than offering the punch-hole or any other top-notch solution, which is a little unexpected from Sony. 

Still, it goes well for the movies and games however some games feel a little cramped due to the lack of vertical height. But in some other ways, the 6-inches display gives a better viewing experience. 

In this model of Sony Xperia 10 II, the company has focused on an OLED display with FDH+ resolution with 465 pixels per screen, which is a greater pixel density than iPhone 11. So this is all about the display of the phone, the major highlight of the Sony Xperia 10 II. Moving forward to the Sony Xperia 10 II camera and other specs, check the details below. 

Sony Xperia 10 II Specifications and Features Details

According to the Sony Xperia 10 II Review, the device boasts Snapdragon 655, an impressive component within this price range. And the most important part is, the chip is sufficient and supports games like CoD mobile and Grim Valor smoothly, because of the defaulting to high graphical designs. 

It supports Android 10 which is upgradable up to 11 making it the multitasking phone. Moving towards the other Sony Xperia 10 II Specifications and features, in the Sony Xperia 10 II review, the Wi-Fi of the phone was found dropping the networks. However, this is nothing new with Sony handsets. 

When it comes to the Sony Xperia 10m II battery, the phone sports a 3600 mAh cell which gives a good response if used wisely. You can save your battery backup by keeping the display brightness low and disabling those running intense apps that can stress the hardware and drain the battery quicker. However, the company has given an 18W fast charging option to charge the phone quickly. Jumping to the Sony Xperia 10 II camera in the section.
