Samsung Galaxy S10e plus Review | Specs, Price, and more
Samsung Galaxy S10e, the "E" of which stands for essential, is jam-packed with the features of S10 and S10 Plus, at a much lower price! The 5.8-inch screen seems to be easy to handle than the larger ones. Not only that but with a fantastic front and rear cameras and the day long lasting battery are few of the amazing features it has. However, you'll have to let go of that advanced third lens and the on-screen fingerprint sensor that you saw on the other phone. But let’s first go over this Samsung Galaxy S10e Review for you to decide for sure.
When did it launch?
Set to be released on the 8th day of March, it has a smaller size that is much more attractive than what the pricier models in this line have. Easier to manage with one hand, it is bound to come in handy at a lot of times.
How is it different from the older version of it?
The first thing to note when talking of its difference with the older version is that it lacks a fingerprint sensor. In its place, it has the capacitive sensor that hasn't been seen since some while. Located on the upper right side of the phone's body, it adds a classy look to it.
The specs of this phone.

Resolution: 1080 x 2280

This smaller body is so much easier to handle. Not only that, but this phone is also the lightest of the three new Samsung phones in this lineup. It also has a similar glass front and back sandwiched in an aluminum frame. Now even though it lacks the traditional curve edges that Samsung has, depriving it of its “premium” look, it makes up for it in its other features. The phone has a little wider bezels too, but it isn’t like its thickness is noticeable in any way.
With a clean back, a barely there camera bump and similar color options as its other two counterparts: flamingo pink, prism blue, prism black, prism white canary yellow and green, it leaves a lasting impression on anyone who tries it.
It also has the punch hole camera, due to the Infinity O display. But the small hole at the top right corner of the screen was little distracting. And yet, it is too early to say whether that will affect one’s usage on the phone or not.
Located over large power button, it has a good LD capacitive sensor on the right side of the phone. With a classy look, it is easy to reach and hence, quite useful because the sleek and classy black cover is not married by the fingerprint sensor that the previous models have. In fact, the only thing on the back is the rear camera, with an almost negligible bump (what's more is that it is aligned horizontally and not vertically). Finally, the casing has the traditional 3.5mm headphone jack at the bottom of it, something we are always profoundly thankful for.
Just like S9, it has the dual aperture tech installed within it. What does that mean? It means that the phone's 77-degree field of view 12MP main camera can switch between f/2.4 for bright scenes and f/1.5 for scenes that do not require much light. The 16MP extra lens is f/2.2 full 123-degree FOV camera that is an added benefit when the casual smartphone photography is concerned. (And the best part is that the S10 and S10 plus models have similar lenses so there will only be a difference of the extra cameras there else the photos will be brilliant.)
Lastly, the 3,100mAh battery unit may be smaller than its counterparts in S10 and S10 Plus, but it keeps the phone working for at least a day and, by the end of the day, we can always find an outlet to charge it right? Besides, if you limit your usage, then it might even work longer!
Considering how the Samsung Galaxy S line has always gone hand in hand with Apple’s iPhone, it isn’t hard to ignore that with Apple’s extended flagship with a lower model, Samsung would have done the same, so of course, it is often compared with iPhone XR, and yet, the S10e isn't Samsung's version of iPhone XR. It is so much better and so much different! And while it does not have the flashier features of galaxy s10 and s10 plus, it still has the advanced ones that make this one a top choice. Not only that but it is cheaper than iPhone XR in the UK (and of the same price in the US).
The OnePlus 7 may have specs similar to this, and it may be cheaper, but Samsung has many decorative headsets that separate it from the black rectangles. Not only is that but if you are in a hurry, then Samsung Galaxy S10e nothing but days away since its launch!
The price of the Samsung Galaxy S10e starts at $775 with a 6GB RAM and a 128GB internal storage.
Verdict: Should you buy it when compared to iPhone, Pixel and other popular phones?
So if you are unable to decide even after reading this Samsung Galaxy S10e Review, then we are here to help you with our verdict. Even though the Samsung Galaxy S10e lacks few of the fun features that the S10 and S10 Plus promise to us, it still has almost everything else. What’s more is that given its price, it definitely is far superior to the other phones in its range.
So if your budget for flagship phones is the same as it was the previous year and the year before that, it will be the perfect phone for you. This is like a basic model for S10 and S10 Plus so unless you wish to add more money to your budget and buy the either of the other two, this is definitely the best option.
