Samsung Galaxy S10 Review

Samsung Galaxy S10 + Review
Written by Sunita Rana

The Galaxy S10 Plus is Samsung’s new everything phone’ for 2019, helping interrupt the sameness of the past couple of generations of Samsung handsets. Its 6.4-inch screen is so big it displaces front camera, while its triple lens rear camera may take ultra-wide pictures. And though you can not watch them, the onscreen fingerprint sensor is a hidden feature for you, while Wireless PowerShares is a benefit for your battery-drained friends. It has a lot of amazing features know Samsung is asking for a lot of money, also.

Samsung Galaxy S10 Review 2019

The Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus is the newest, almost everything included Samsung cellphone which you really want if you’re able to afford it and may wrap your hands around its large screen. We were immediately drawn to it as the bigger and better version of the Galaxy S10 and more economical Galaxy S10e.

The Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus launch date is March 8, but pre-order began on February 20, providing potential owners lots of time to make their intentions known… and to save up a little bit of extra money. That is because the S10 Plus price has increased more than its predecessor, the Galaxy S9 Plus, so you’ll need to be prepared to pay that little longer. That matches with the Galaxy Note 9 launch cost and comes at $80 / #30 more expensive than the S9 Plus.

Samsung Galaxy S10 Display Review

The 6.4 inches Super AMOLED display on the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus makes this the largest S phone screen to date, bigger than 5.8-inch Galaxy S9 Plus and fitting the Galaxy Notice 9 screen dimensions. Additionally, it is a good deal better. The most important draw for us would be the 93.1percent screen-to-body ratio, as Samsung has found a way to fit more pixels across a body that is tighter, which also signifies a decline in the size of the already-slender bezels above and beneath the screen.

Its standout screen dimension is down to Samsung’s new Infinity-O screen. The South Korean firm has prevented employing a topnotch cut-out across its new flagship range by opting for a laser-cut hole at the top-right corner.

This punch-hole’ display is formally a fad, but Samsung’s largest phone includes two-wheeled cameras, not one, with the second RGB camera used to take much better portrait selfies compared to single-lens front-facing Galaxy S10 and S10e cameras. It means the punch-hole on the S10 Plus requires up to a little more distance than on other handsets.

It’s larger than a single camera notches and punch-holes, but we have not found it any more distracting, and it allows Samsung more display real estate to play with. That is the actual benefit: fitting more modest notification icons throughout the top, such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and cellular signal, as well as the all-important battery life percent we can’t live without it in mobile.

It is worth noting that the two front cameras sit in line with the notification bar, and therefore don’t get in the way at all when it comes to general use (web browsing, social networking, emails and so on), even though a black bar is applied to the conclusion of the screen when you are gaming or watching movies, effectively rendering it vanish.

The Galaxy S10 Plus display boasts a 1440 x 3040 QHD+ resolution, which is stretched across the tall 19:9 aspect ratio and provides a pin-sharp 526ppi pixel density, in summary, this is really a large, highly detailed display. By default, the screen resolution is in fact set to Full HD+ (2280 x 1080). Something Samsung has performed on its previous few flagships in a bid to conserve battery power.

The Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus is also the first phone (along with the Galaxy S10) using HDR10+ support for superior contrast and color, a significant advantage if you are a movie watcher on your phone an idea which isn’t so mad here, since the display size is near that of a small tablet. Other screen attributes include enhanced brightness for better outdoor visibility and Samsung’s common elegantly curved borders, allowing pixels to spill over the sides.

You will still find a small bezel outline on top and underside of this phone. It is less bezel rather than bezel-less. Samsung hasn’t worked out how to eliminate the top speaker in this season’s handset although we think that will be the next issue to go, in 2020 — while the underside has a thinner, but apparent, chin. If anything, that may be more distracting than the punch-hole.

The Infinity-O display is Samsung’s brand new look for 2019, and it is enough of a change if you’ve been demanding something fresh. It seems fantastic, using bright, vibrant reproduction producing the best of pictures, icons, apps, games, and movie.

Samsung Galaxy S10 Design

Besides the new display, the plan of this Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus looks comfortable at first sight. However, you’ll find subtle developments and surprises old and new.It’s aluminum frame is thinner than the S9 Plus and sandwiched between smooth glass in many variations. Everything on the conventional S10 Plus is covered in Gorilla Glass 6front and back, whereas the 512GB and 1TB versions are backed by ceramic in either white or black.

Meanwhile, the conventional glass version the one most people will probably buy comes in’Prism’ white, green and black. We will get 128 GB storage space to use in Mobile.

The back of this Galaxy S10 Plus almost flush, with a triple-lens camera array which has a subtle camera bump outlining it, and you won’t be able to tell in which the inverse wireless charging module is located under this.

The camera’s real place on the rear of the telephone, rather than the top-right corner placement shared on many smartphones, means that it sits well on a surface and doesn’t rock on an angle. It’s a little point, but we appreciate the balanced posture that the S10 Plus has.

Also, we appreciate the cleaner look of this S10 Plus. It’s a smarter, more polished appearance. The fingerprint sensor plays an invisible tip, too, and it is one you will want to flaunt. Following a yearlong hiatus, Samsung’s fingerprint sensor returns to the front of its flagships, but this time it’s embedded beneath the glass of the screen, thanks to Qualcomm’s ultrasonic fingerprint technology.

Finger Print Sensor

The ultrasonic technology also means the sensor will continue working even if your finger, or even the display, is cold or wet two scenarios which can cause issues with optical scanners and we discovered this to be the case in our tests.

One downside to the fingerprint scanner at the Galaxy S10 Plus, it is not quite as fast to comprehend your print as optical subscribers located outside of a display.

You are looking at no more than another from placing your finger down to unlock the S10 Plus, but if you’re coming out of a device with an optical reader, you’ll likely see the small delay.

You need to apply more pressure to the in-display fingerprint scanner than you would in an optical one, and you will want to place your finger in the ideal place. Otherwise, it will not work. There’s a beneficial fingerprint icon on the screen showing you where your digit should go.

The Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus is powered by the Exynos 9820 chip built on an 8nm procedure. The SoC includes eight cores in three clusters. The four small/efficiency Cortex A55 cores are clocked at 1950MHz; the dual middle Cortex A75 cores are clocked at 2314MHz while the remaining two performance Exynos M4 cores are clocked at 2730Mhz. The tri-cluster design is fast becoming popular since it enables the processor to stay power efficient by triggering specific cores based on the task at hand. The Exynos 9820 is paired with 8GB of LPDDR4x RAM, enough for your job and performance demands. The Exynos chips have been crushed upon to be slower than their Snapdragon counterpart, but we were very curious to see just where the new Exynos chip fell about the performance metric. So we put it through our set of CPU and GPU artificial benchmarks.

On AntuTu, the S10 Plus strikes a commendable 328402, the highest score we’ve seen on the grade in our laboratory thus far.

Samsung Galaxy S10 Verdict

Last year, Samsung used the camera as a key differentiator between the S9 and the S9 Plus. This year, that difference does not exist as both the phones come with a triple camera. This camera doesn’t include AF or OIS. The primary camera has 12-megapixel resolution and a dual aperture mechanism going between f/1.5 along with f/2.4. This camera sports Samsung’s dual pixel AF and OIS, along with offering a 26mm field of view. The third camera is currently wearing a telephoto lens with an aperture of f/2.4 along with OIS and PDAF. We have seen this kind of a configuration from the Huawei and LG within their flagships. Therefore Samsung does have stiff competition. We will break the camera review into smaller bits because there’s a lot to talk about this. A lot is going on with the S10’s camera, so we’ve done a separate, in-depth analysis of this camera that we advise that you read.
