Samsung Galaxy S10 Specs, Price and Reviews
Samsung Galaxy S10 Specs and First Look
Samsung’s flagship for 2019, the Galaxy S10, matches its powerful hardware with the fresh OneUI interface.
This thin and light phone is powered by the powerful Snapdragon 855/Exynos 9820 chips and has heaps of memory for your multitasking needs – a whopping 8GB, accompanied by 128 or 512GB versions. Design-wise, the Galaxy S10 sets itself apart from the previous generation with its offset punch-hole 10MP selfie camera, which is capable of capturing stabilized 4K footage.
The camera is the only thing interrupting the gorgeous 6.1-inch OLED display. The cameras at the back are three – the regular 12MP is joined by a 12MP telephoto and a 16MP wide-angle one, a first for the Galaxy S series. The S10 is available in Prism White, Prism Black, Prism Green, and Prism Blue, with prices starting at $899.

IPhone XS vs Samsung Galaxy S10
The iPhone XS is the original archrival and while this dilemma is often decided on grounds of ecosystem preferences, some other considerations could come into play.
The S10’s ultra-wide camera has obviously no answer from the iPhone, but when it comes to selfies the S10 is slightly better too, even for the same number of modules
Pixel 3 vs Samsung Galaxy S10
If pocketability is the top priority, the Pixel 3 is still that one bit ahead of the S10, though at the expense of screen estate. The Google phone is a couple of cameras short on the back, and one has to wonder if the versatility of three modules doesn’t beat having a single awesome one (it probably does).
LG G8 ThingQ vs Samsung Galaxy S10
LG’s G8 ThinQ will come with a heavily-modded UI like the Galaxy, and we know how both skins have passionate haters. That aside, the G8 should pack a triple camera setup like the S10’s (unless you’re in a market where the G8 will have two cameras, because LG) and a nifty ToF camera to complement the 8MP selfie shooter, though we’re still leaning towards the S10’s dual pixel 10MP cam.
Xiaomi Mi 9 vs Samsung Galaxy S10
The Xiaomi Mi 9 isn’t quite as compact as the S10, but if you can live with the extra bulk, you’ll be rewarded with better battery life, an autofocusing ultra-wide camera as opposed to Samsung’s fixed focus one, and substantial savings – you can have two Mi 9s for the price of a Galaxy S10.
- Standout design, compact size, top-quality build, unique colors.
- Spectacular display.
- Superb photo and video quality with minor exceptions.
- Reverse wireless charging is handy
- Hole-punch camera looks futuristic
- In-screen fingerprint sensor
- One UI mobile OS is great
- Doesn't feel big in your hand
- Frustrating fingerprint reader experience (hopefully to be improved via an update).
- Battery life is just average.
- Low-light selfies are meh, portraits aren't as good as on the Plus (duh).
- We wish the ultra wide cam had autofocus.
- Bright night mode isn't up there with the Pixel's or Huawei's night modes.
- Bixby A.I. feels stagnant
- Stunning price hike
- Infinity-O display is a little unsightly
- Charges only 2.5X faster than iPhone XS Max. could be 5X
- In-screen fingerprint reader position and accuracy
