Sony Xperia 10 II Review, Specification & Price in Nigeria
This is the first mid-range phone from Sony to come with three cameras on the rear, plus it’s also the first to sport the IP65/68 water-resistant design that’s been a staple of its flagship phones for years.
Sony has simplified its mid-range Xperia offering by only offering one device for 2020, rather than the two offered in 2019 and that’s a good thing. The Xperia 10 II offers a more advanced processor, larger battery, better camera capabilities (on paper at least) and a nicer design than the devices it succeeds.

Design & Display
The Sony Xperia 10 II has a nice and attractive body design. The phone parades a combination of aluminum alloy and glass. While It has body dimensions of 157 x 69 x 8.2 mm and weighs 151 grams. As you can see, it’s a lightweight device and lighter than the Sony Xperia 1 II.
However, it shows a smooth panel housing only the camera and an LED flash while the fingerprint scanner is on the side as usual. The IP65 and the IP68 rating promise to survive up to 1.5m deep for 30 mins in water.
On the front part, the Sony Xperia 10 II has a screen display size of 6.0 inches with OLED display technology. The display offers 21:9 CinemaWide tall aspect ratio and also carries support for full HD+ resolution. It packs display protection and also has a 77.6% screen-to-body ratio.
Camera, Performance & Software
On the front of the phone is an 8MP selfie camera which should provide you with some strong front-facing shots.
The handset has a similar design to the phone we saw in 2019 with a weight of 151 grams and the color choices of either black or white. Its dimensions are 157 x 69 x 8.2mm, plus the 3.5mm headphone jack also remains on the phone.
The display is a 6-inch Full HD+ OLED panel that has an aspect ratio of 21:9. The reasoning for the 21:9 is that the company believes it offers more space for watching video, playing games and more when in landscape.
Inside is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 chipset that should power the phone well, but won’t offer top-end performance like we’re expecting from flagship phones like the Xperia 1 II or the Samsung Galaxy S20.
There’s 4GB of RAM here along with 128GB of storage for everything you’ll want on the phone. The Xperia 10 II doesn’t come with 5G, so you’ll only be able to get a 4G signal. The battery is a 3,600mAh cell.
Battery & Network
It has a Non Removable battery capacity of 3600 mAh with fast charging 18W. The juicer also features Quick Charge 3.0 and USB Power Delivery.
The dual SIM carries support for 4G LTE Network. Other connectivity options on the handset include WiFi, Bluetooth, NFC, FM radio for entertainment, A-GPS for location tracking and 2.0, Type-C 1.0 reversible connector.
