Samsung Galaxy S10
As a representation of the Galaxy line in its tenth anniversary, the Samsung Galaxy S10 does not have any radically new features you have never seen before.
It happens to be the first phone in the world to feature an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor, while also harboring five cameras (which include an ultra-wide shooter and two front cameras). The standard of fast Android phones is also challenged, as this has the Snapdragon 855 processor, making it the fastest one yet.
One feature that is really impressive is the PowerShare. This allows you to utilize the back of the phone to charge other phones, in addition to the amazing battery life (12.5 hours on average). It also happens to be narrower and lighter than competing phones, making it easy to carry.
- Lightweight and narrow
- The high ratio of screen-to-body
- The fingerprint sensor
- PowerShare advantages
- The punch holes at the top of the phone can be distracting
- Price tag
Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus
The Samsung Galaxy S10+ is the most expensive and biggest smartphone in Samsung’s repertoire and the Galaxy series so far – all thanks to the 1TB storage capacity and 12GB RAM, which you can insert a memory card of up to 512GB.
The first thing you will spot is the AMOLED display, measuring 6.4-inches, massive in smartphones. It also gives you a wide space of the screen, coupled with a beautiful design that will attract you instantly.
In addition, just like the other S10 phones, the bezels that were a common feature of the screen top are gone, with two punch holes for the front cameras. Beware though – these holes can quickly become an eyesore, especially when you use apps with white backgrounds.
If you have struggled in the past to take great shots of specific features, the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus solves the issue, due to the 0.5x zoom or the 2x zoom that you can use for wider shots. In addition, the biometric sensor is at the edge-to-edge screen at t3he front area.
- Great build
- 3.5mm port for headphones
- Great memory
- The Infinity-O display can get annoying
Samsung Galaxy S10e
We have no idea on what the ‘e’ stands for, but we know it is slightly more affordable compared to the S10 and S10 Plus, while having similar features. The design is as brilliant as the others, and the design strikes you as a well-built phone. The screen size is 5.8 inches, yet still feels more comfortable even when you use it with one hand.
However, the selfies camera is relegated to a very small punch hole at the top right corner. Additionally, the Infinity-O screen holes can become an annoying factor.
The screen is also flat – that may not be of much significance, unless you are used to having curved screens such as the S9, plus two rear cameras (instead of three). Bad news – there is no Live Focus to be found here.
- Good build quality
- The size is compact
- Headphone port
- Lacks Live Focus and ultrasonic fingerprint scanning
- Annoying Infinity-O display
While all the models have their merits and disadvantages, the clear winner is the Samsung Galaxy S10. Its build is impressive, and the memory and battery life are something worth considering – especially now when smartphones have so many demands placed on them through apps and data.
