The Xperia 10 V Could Have Been a Decent Mid-Range Offering

Aside from the Xperia 1 V, Sony also announced the Xperia 10 V for its mid-range offering. While it brags to be the lightest phone with a 5000mAh battery at 159g–it’s lighter than its predecessor, the Xperia 10 V is not as exciting as it flagship brother. Let’s break that down.

For starters, you still get a Snapdragon 695 processor–an aging 5G chip that lacks 4K video recording, along with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage that’s expandable via MicroSD–which is basically the same configuration as its predecessor. The display is the same 6.1-inch OLED panel with a dated 60hz refresh rate, though Sony claims that it is brighter than the one used on the 10 IV. There are no notches or punch-holes on the Xperia 10 V and the 8-megapixel selfie shooter is housed on the top bezel.

The Xperia 10 V’s camera does get an upgrade: a 48-megapixel main camera with OIS, 8-megapixel ultra-wide, and 8-megapixel telephoto with 2x optical zoom. however, you don’t get to maximize those cameras due to chipset limitations–ie. video recording is limited to just Full HD.

The battery remains the same at 5000mAh with support for 30w charging, along with an IP68 rating, headphone jack, and stereo speakers. Perhaps the biggest disappointment with the Xperia 10 V is its price: in Europe, it will go for 450 Euros or around Php 27.5k pesos, which is very expensive for a phone that only uses a Snapdragon 695.
