Conclusion from DPReview:

As you might expect, the X-T4 is at least a little bit better in almost every respect than the X-S10. Its list price is 70% higher, after all. However, given they offer the same image quality and very similar AF performance, it’s reasonable to consider whether you need all the bigger camera’s firepower.

The X-T4’s greater capabilities make it the clear choice if you’re at all interested in shooting video that you plan to color grade and edit, but the X-S10 is still a very capable video camera. If you want a stills camera to really enjoy or that will stand up to some abuse, the larger viewfinder, more numerous control points and more rugged build again hold a lot of attraction. But it’s hard to deny that the X-S10 is an absolute bargain and, for a lot of people, an X-S10 and an extra lens might be the more attractive combination.
