You don’t mess about with a successful formula, do you? We don’t have the stats to determine how popular the Xperia 10 II was, but it must have been a hit because Sony hasn’t made many changes to the Xperia 10 III we have today.
Of course, the few places that have been improved are significant. While not a powerhouse in terms of itself, the Snapdragon 690 within the new model is far more powerful and, at the very least, more competitive against the competition. Thanks to the upgraded chipset, 5G compatibility is now included in the bundle.
Another positive development is a large boost in battery capacity to 4,500mAh (up from 3,600mAh last year). Although this adds some weight, the Mk 3 remains one of the more pocketable handsets at 169g.
Less noticeable improvements include an increase in RAM to 6GB (from 4GB) and the addition of HDR capability to the otherwise same 6-inch OLED display. Unfortunately, it’s still a 60Hz panel, which, regardless of market position, isn’t particularly stylish.
The most essential feature that has been carried over is the IP65/68 designation for dust and water resistance, which is a rarity in the midrange and really sets the Xperia 10 III apart. For the price, the Gorilla Glass 6 sandwich is also hardly a given.
The charger is rated at just 7.5 watts, which isn’t something we’ve seen in a long time. The phone supports USB Power Delivery and will benefit from a higher-powered adapter, such as the company’s own 30-watt XQZ-UC1 model, but it wasn’t included with our review unit. Perhaps different equipment will be used in retail stores. Furthermore, Sony has been known to change the contents of packages from one country to the next, so there may be regional differences.
Sony is giving away a pair of WH-CH710N noise-canceling headphones for free with the purchase of an Xperia 10 III, with the promo duration varied by area. The headphones have an MSRP of €150, although they usually sell for approximately €90 – still an excellent deal in our opinion.
