Yes, if you are not ready to move into flagship territory and want a handset that’s easier on the wallet and even easier on the eye. The Sony Xperia 10 II is a fantastic middle ground of specs and pricing, upgrading specs where it counts from the original Sony Xperia 10 II. The only thing we aren’t totally enamoured by is the rather clunky name.
The Sony Xperia 10 II joins a plethora of mid-range handsets, all of which are punching above their weight in terms of specs and offering much the same as many pricier handsets. Design wise, the handset is sleek. It houses a 21:9 six-inch screen, with an OLED display. This makes for a rather tall phone that is great for viewing Netflix and the like (as the aspect ratio is primed for movie watching). It’s powered by a decent Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 processor and has a triple-lens camera setup, with the main camera being a 12MP zoom lens.

The Sony Xperia 10 II comes with 128GB storage on board and 4GB of RAM. 128GB is suitable for most users, ideal for:
Wanting to keep a number of files stored on the handset
Image and video storage (although you should think about cloud storage)
Apps and games
The good news is that if you feel that 128GB is not enough, then you have the option to add more storage, thanks to the microSD card compatibility. While there isn’t one available in the box having this option is good news for those who are media hoarders.
The Sony Xperia 10 II comes with a 3600mAh battery and this is set to last. As with many a mid-range phone, given the processor isn’t blistering fast the battery tends to last a little longer and we expect the Sony Xperia 10 II to last around 20 hours of pretty constant use, which means that it will definitely last a day and then some.
Sony has kept it simple with the Sony Xperia 10 II and is offering two colour options: black and white.
As with many Sony devices, the camera side of things is impressive. Sony has a long history of delivering best-in-class photography features with its handsets and what’s on display here is good for a mid-range phone. While 12MP doesn’t sound huge (many sensors are 48MP or more on rival phones), it does a decent job, thanks to features such as HDR. It doesn’t have the low-light capabilities that other handsets have, though, and its camera software is surprisingly unintuitive in places. It’s great to see a triple lens camera array on board, though.

The Sony Xperia 10 II is a mid-range flagship that may well get replaced this year. As of January 2021, there has been no word on a successor. Because of its modest price, deals range from around the £20 mark a month to double this, depending on what kind of data bundle you are looking for.
It is worth thinking about the following before taking on any new mobile phone contract:
Does the provider offer the right model and colour for your needs?
Is the contract length the right one for you (many now just offer 24 months)?
How far into the contract can you upgrade to a new phone?
Are there things like a warranty included?
Does the network offer the following: good coverage, roaming, data caps (and what is its stance on Brexit-based liabilities).
Are there any perks on offer, such as freebies, entertainment bundles etc.
Is there a possibility to pay off the handset early?
There are a number of service providers that are offering the Sony Xperia 10 II on a monthly contract. Pricing seems to vary according to the amount of data the contract is offering.
Currently the following providers are offering deals:
On Sony’s official site (as of January 2021) you can get the Sony Xperia 10 II for £319. It may be worth considering buying the phone then look for a PAYG or SIM-free package.
No, the Sony Xperia 10 II is a 4G-enabled handset. If you want a 5G phone by Sony, then it is worth looking at the Sony Xperia 1 II.
No, the Sony Xperia 1 II is a flagship phone with better specs across the board and 5G connectivity. All of this is represented in the price, though, which is much higher than what you can get the Sony Xperia 1 II for right now (as of January 2021)
