As far as the camera, Sony lives up to it's reputation of creating fantastic cameras (Canon, Nikon, and Fuji film beware!). Close ups, landscapes, and low light pictures turn out fantastic! However, zooming, not so great (but, I already have one of the Sony Zoom cameras). The only drawbacks that I have encountered, or have noticed, would be, Sony also living up to it's reputation of making products that are a little fragile. Prior to buying the camera, I would recommend buying a case for it. Keep in mind it will be clunking around in your bag, or car seat, I like to keep my electronics safe. I bought a drawstring bag for one of the smaller DSLR lenses, There are case specifically designed for this camera, but they are a little pricy. Also, I am not sure if the battery life is so low because I bought the camera used, or, the battery life is just a little low. You may want to buy an extra battery. Keep in mind that wifi can be a bit of a battery hog, that combined with taking pictures and videos, can really drain the battery.
In Summary :
Fantastic close ups
Fantastic low light
Great for fireworks
Can be difficult to sync (must follow the instructions)
Fragile, get a case
May need to buy a back up battery and charger
So, if you can follow the instructions, and be a little patient, things will work out well.
The QX10: gorgeous little piece of equipment, and takes stunning photos. The look, feel, and performance of the hardware is extraordinary, and I think Sony has really become a strong player in the world of cameras. I love the initiative taken to innovate a product that acknowledges the move to people relying more fully on smart phones for photos, but sometimes wanting to step up the game a bit, without having to lug around a full DSLR camera. Yes, we are doing the dreaded "extra device" thing, but the extra device is small, convenient, powerful, and worthwhile. The BIG set-back with the camera is that Sony somehow (stupidly) chose to force users to make a WIFI connection to the camera, rather than Bluetooth. My understanding is that Android users have a more automatic connection with the wifi setting, but let's acknowledge that there is a huge iPhone user-base here, too. Bluetooth would make for a fast, easy, no-extra-steps connection, and I am endlessly frustrated by the wifi setting.
The App: Dreadful, disfunctional, and not being improved fast enough or well enough. This is a sad story. The promise that is advertised for using the app with the camera is not the reality AT ALL. Just read through the app reviews! It is slow, and your photography experience becomes a nightmare of lagging, freezing, restarting, re-installing, and screaming. It will also drain an iPhone battery in record time. I spent hours on the phone with their support team, and have learned that the app particularly dislikes the iPhone 5, running iOS 7. The app could also clearly have more (obvious) features, such as different scene/shutter settings. The settings menu is very limited.
Camera 360 has integrated a Sony QX10/100 compatibility in their app (3rd party developers are open to integration with the camera). I'm glad to see that someone has at least come on board in that arena, but they offer even less usability functions (not even a tap-to-focus option?), and it has trouble connecting with the hardware. Hoping for more (and better) 3rd party app compatibility in the future.
Overall summary: If you are a casual photographer, and a patient person, the camera is fun, and takes great photos. You cannot rapid-fire shoot, and may have to spend 10 seconds or more trying to get each shot (Nature scene? Cool. Kids and dogs? Good luck!) I remain optimistically hopeful for an improved user experience soon. Meanwhile, I've moved on to the Samsung NX 300.

Issues: too slow to connect to wifi (even with the latest firmware update). Wifi viewer find sometimes can be very laggy or freezes.
So if you are taking a picture in a hurry, this might not be for you.
Battery life drops quickly when you are doing a lot of zoom. It's expected, so carry some extra batteries.
