Configuration parameters of Sony Xperia 10 III: Quite stable compared to the price
Before going into the detailed performance evaluation of this device, I will quickly review the parameters of the Sony Xperia 10 III for everyone’s reference:
- Screen: OLED panel, Full HD + resolution (1080 x 2520 pixels).
- CPU: Snapdragon 690.
- GPU: Adreno 619.
- RAM: 6 GB.
- Internal memory: 128 GB
- Operating system: Android 11.
- Battery: 4500 mAh, supports 18 W nhanh fast charging
As we have seen Sony Xperia 10 III is equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 690 chip, a mid-range chip manufactured with 8 nm process and supports 5G network connectivity. This is a significant upgrade over the Snapdragon 665 chip on its predecessor Xperia 10 II, especially in terms of performance. However, when compared to smartphones in the same segment, Snapdragon 690 on Xepria 10 III is not really impressive.
Scoring the performance of Xperia 10 III: It’s strong but not enough
The GSMArena site has scored the performance of Xperia 10 III with some 3rd party software such as GeekBench 5, AnTuTu Benchmark, GFXBench Benchmark. In the Geekbench 5 test, the Sony Xperia 10 III achieved the same performance score as some smartphones using the same Snapdrago 690 chip (for example, the OnePlus Nord N10 5G).
The Snapdragon 690 chip gives the Xperia 10 III a slightly better performance than smartphones using the Dimensity 800U chip (such as Vivo V21 5G). However, in the same price as the Sony Xperia 10 III, you can get yourself a Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro with the more powerful Snapdragon 865 chip.
In the Antutu test, the Sony Xperia 10 III still gives better results than most other smartphones. However, this phone still has to be behind a number of competitors using the first 7xx Snapdragon chip.
In the test on GFXBench, the Sony Xperia 10 III has a result that is 30% lower than the Snapdragon 750 chip above Motorola Moto G or Snapdragon 765 chip on OnePlus North.
In the 3D Mark test, similar to the tests above, it seems that the performance of the Xperia 10 III is not strong enough compared to some other smartphones in the same price segment.
A plus point for the Xperia 10 III is that despite a lot of tests, the temperature of the device is not too hot and still maintains stability for performance. Although the Sony Xperia 10 owns a mid-range Snapdragon 690 chip that is not so powerful, the Sony Xperia 10 III can still meet basic daily tasks smoothly.
Realistic gaming experience on Sony Xperia 10 III
So through the two actual gaming experience videos above, we can see that Snapdragon 690 on Xperia 10 III can perfectly fight two games with heavy graphics like Asphalt 9 or Call of Duty Mobile . Although the video does not mention the graphics settings of each game, I think the device can handle the average graphics setting.
If so, then Xperia 10 III can also fight popular games like Lien Quan Mobile, PUBG Mobile or Free Fire,… I hope in the future, I will have the opportunity to be in your hands. Xperia 10 III to experience and evaluate the performance of this smartphone for you to see. Well, two reviewers of GSMArena and Tech Spurt both think that representatives from Sony can fully meet the needs of common use.
Pure Google Android 11 operating system will somewhat improve the performance of Xperia 10 III 10
Sony Xperia 10 III is equipped with Android 11 operating system (almost pure Google) and the company only equips with certain customizations, but does not interfere too deeply in the system interface. This not only makes the interface on this phone better optimized, but the performance of the device will be much smoother and more stable. Perhaps let’s talk a little bit about the user interface on the Sony Xperia 10 III.
On the device’s lock screen, we still have a shortcut to the camera and Google Assistant, but according to the author, the shortcut for Google Assistant is unnecessary because the device already has a hard key to call back. virtual to call Google Assistant already.
Xperia 10 III owns an interface with a simple design (like on pure Android operating system) but still bold Sony. Typically, the notification bar is customized by the company so that users can receive some more notifications about news, weather, … from Google.
One of the features that I really like on the Xperia 10 III is Side sense. This feature allows users to double-tap the edge of the smartphone’s screen to display applications that users frequently use. Side sense function will be very useful in case we use the smartphone with one hand.
By the way, talking about software, Xperia 10 III does not support game acceleration, one of the important features that helps improve the performance of Xperia smartphones (like on predecessor smartphones like Xperia 1 II or Xperia 1 II). Xperia 5 II).
Although Xperia 10 III is not a suitable phone for those with high gaming needs because the Snapdragon 690 chip is inherently not intended for plowing games. However, if you need a phone that is enough for daily use and some entertainment tasks are not too heavy, then Xperia 10 III is one of the choices worth considering. So what do you think about the performance and what Sony brings on this Xperia 10 III? Please comment below to let me know!
