The Samsung S10, Samsung’s latest smartphones was first announced on the 20th of February and officially released on the 8th of March. Like most other Samsung smartphones released before, the phone comes with an adequate combination of high standard and quality, edge-cutting display, fantastic style and an enviable inclusion of style. The Samsung Galaxy S10 is quite spectacular in that there are only a few phones which can compete with it in terms of specifications.
While we consider the Samsung Galaxy S10, it is also noteworthy to consider other devices in the series: the Samsung Galaxy S10+ and the Samsung Galaxy S10e. When compared to one another, the S10+ comes with the most premium features and qualities and is expectedly the most expensive of the bunch. The S10e, on the other hand, comes with features which are a bit toned down from that of the S10 and is charged at the lowest price of the three. Asides these other two, a smartphone that comes close to the S10 is the Samsung Galaxy S9 which was released almost a year before. Both the S10 and S9 have very similar features but the former is certainly a notable upgrade of the latter.
Samsung never disappoints when it comes to the designs and displays of their phones. With each new smartphone release, the brand brings up new innovations, yet interestingly like previous releases. The Samsung Galaxy S10, as well as the S10 Plus, has yet one of the finest and most functional designs that Samsung has released for any of its smartphones. Both phones are physically designed with an obvious flair for efficiency over functionless designs. The screen of the S10 stretches almost to its total edges, operating a commendable bezel-less display. Of course, Samsung appears to have a special interest in light and compact designs as against heavy ones. The S10 and S10e both come with glass backs like other Samsung flagship models like the Note 9, S9, S8 and S8 Plus while the S10+ packs a back cover made of ceramic, making it a little heavier than its other sister models. The phones come across as quite slippery due to their covers. However, with a phone case, that would easily be sorted. A major difference between the S10+ and its other counterparts is the presence of a hole punch hosting two front cameras unlike that of the S10 and S10e which have smaller hole punches that can only accommodate one front camera.
The S10 packs a display of 6.1 inches; the S10+ packs a slightly higher display of 6.4 inches while the S10e has a lower display of 5.8 inches. All phones have a brilliant display for both viewing and operating pleasure. The S10 (as well as the S10+ and S10e) has an amazing blend of colour contrast, brightness, hue, and quality and is suitable for the eyes, whether you are operating it in bright sunlight or in dark conditions. Regarding display, one fascinating thing common to these latest Samsung flagships is the AMOLED display.
Samsung has introduced a new feature in the S10 and S10+; an on-screen fingerprint sensor. The sensor functions on ultrasonic technology, using sound waves. Although this is a relatively new feature, which comes with its own pros and cons. It is quite better than the previous sensors which use optical technology. One of the cons of this new feature is that it is not as fast as the previous sensor innovations like that of the Samsung Galaxy S9 which is mounted at the back of the phone. While the in-display sensor makes it easier for you to unlock your phone, it is a bit tougher to find the exact unlock spot on the screen, especially as the spot that recognizes your fingerprint is quite small. You might also have to try and keep trying before you eventually get the right spot. However, looking on the bright side, this new technology means a higher level of guaranteed security especially when it comes to making purchases online. The S10e does not have an on-screen fingerprint sensor; it is rather found on the power button on the phone.
One of the top-notch features of all Samsung flagship phones is the camera. Hence, the cameras of the S10, S10e, and S10+, although differ in several ways, are perfect for any picture situation that you might have. The Samsung Galaxy S10 offers camera quality quite like its predecessors, the S9 and Note 9. However, it has a slightly commendable quality of photos and videos. On any of these phones, you can get a quick capture. It is accompanied by a swift interface that makes the entire experience alluring. As expected, pictures taken on each of these phones are especially brilliant. Even under low light conditions, the phone’s innovation makes it possible for you to have exceptionally beautiful pictures The S10 camera has a new feature called the Scene Optimizer which allows the phone’s camera to adjust perfectly to whatever light conditions it finds itself.
One notable function common to the Galaxy S10, S10+ and S10e is their extremely wide viewing angles and perspectives. The phones also have cameras which could capture up to about thirty different scenes in a picture. The Samsung Galaxy S10, S10+ and S10e all have a 12MP rear camera in common as well as a 16MP rear camera. The S10e and S10 both have single front cameras while the S10+ comes with a dual-front camera. The S10e, being the least of the S10 series has two dual cameras and one front camera. The S10, the premium flagship of this series, has three dual cameras and one front camera. The S10+, readily the biggest of the three, comes with five cameras in total; three dual cameras, one front camera and an extra RBG camera in front as well.
Whether you are just a simple phone user who likes to take random selfies, or a blogger, or a content creator or photography enthusiast, any of these phones would be an amazing pick for you in terms of the camera.
Performance, Software & Memory
As expected, Samsung focuses on better performance for its flagship S10 series. The S10, S10e, and S10+ are all powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor. With an in-built AI, these high-end smartphones have massive performance, experience no sort of freezes or visible problems and would pass as the very best phones in the entire Samsung Galaxy S series so far. Everyone loves a phone that allows them to perform as many functions as they can at the same time without being frustrated by a lag and any of these smartphones would provide you with that luxury and convenience. While the S10e has a RAM of 6GB, the S10 and S10+ both have a RAM of 8GB each.
In terms of software, the S10 also functions on Samsung’s latest software, the One UI. The One UI is built to give customers a very enjoyable, consistent and swift user-experience.
Samsung doesn’t leave out battery capacity with its latest flagships. The batteries of the S10, S10e, and S10+ are almost ridiculously amazing. The S10 packs a battery capacity of 3400mAh while the S10+ packs a larger capacity and size of 4100mAh (17 times more than the S10). Quite similar to the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, the batteries could last for as long as a day even under intense use. This means that you can perform various functions ranging from seeing videos, playing games, chatting with friends, loved ones and associates, browsing the internet, listening to a podcast and more without your battery easily going off on you. If you intend going on a trip, the S10 or the S10+ would be your perfect, almost never-dying phone to accompany you. The Galaxy Samsung S10e packs a battery capacity of 3100mAh which is actually not disappointing when compared to its counterparts.
Perhaps the most mind-blowing feature on these phones is the PowerShare feature. The PowerShare feature debuts on the Samsung Galaxy S10 series and enables you to charge other phones wirelessly. This feature can also charge the new Samsung earbuds wirelessly as well.
