Samsung's newest line of their Galaxy S series was unveiled yesterday, showing off three new smartphones that rival the iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR beyond just pricing and specs. The Samsung Galaxy S10, S10+ and S10e are perfect if you're an Android person; these phones exist to tickle your fancy with their sleek look and a myriad of other new features.
For starters, the Samsung Galaxy S10 comes with a 6.1" curved screen that teeters on the bares edges of the phone, allowing for a fully immersive experience. Just when you thought that bezels were at their peak, Samsung has taken it further and pushed the screen to new depths of convexity.
Next is the camera, which incorporates a triple-camera setup with a 16 MP and two 12 MP cameras that includes telephoto and ultra-wide options. Unlike the disparity between the S9 and S9+, both the Galaxy S10 and 10+ have the same triple-camera display cameras on the rear side, while the S10+ has an additional 8 MP front camera in addition to the 10 MP single that all three phones share.
They've also removed the iconic notch found at the top of the screen and relocated the camera to a little dot located on the top right of the phone (or a slightly elongated dot on the S10+).
Other differences between the S10, the S10+ and the S10e? The S10 is Samsung's flagship phone, while the S10+ is larger and features some hardware upgrades and a better battery. The S10e is the lesser, "budget-friendly" option and is the smallest of the three, with a 5.8" flat screen and a reduced pixel density.
Luckily, all three phones have the same chipset and processors, meaning performance is about the same. They also share the same rear cameras, however the S10e lacks the third telephoto camera that the other two have.
Samsung has also integrated the fingerprint sensor within the screen itself in all three phones as opposed to the back of the phone like the Galaxy S9 and S9+. There are also some cool new features, like the Wireless PowerShare option, which lets you use the back of your phone to charge another one, or even smaller accessories like the Galaxy Buds.
As the smoke clears, it seems that there isn't too much of a difference between the three phones for the generic user. Will you be picking up a Samsung Galaxy S10, S10+ or S10e?
