Inaugurated in February this year, the Samsung Galaxy S10 celebrates the 10th anniversary of the first Galaxy S handset. Over the years, Samsung has continuously added to the Galaxy S series flagship, becoming synonymous with the idea of excess technology in the smartphone space. From the first devices to the new S10 phones with the flagships of the Galaxy S, Samsung has always tried to push the envelope, bringing flashy technologies that are still ahead of the times.
This year’s Galaxy S10 appears to be carrying more than the usual quota of hopes and expectations – with many even firmly putting the weight of the entire brand on its elegant shoulders.
The S10 as such comes as the most notable upgrade to the Samsung Galaxy S series in years, and it’s a matter of taking advantage of the best technology that money can buy now. From the use of an ultrasonic fingerprint scanner, reverse wireless charging and new triple camera setup with a 12-megapixel wide-angle lens, a 12-megapixel sub-telephoto lens, and a new 16-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens. Vision equip with features that are meant to impress at first glance.
Nearly 100,000 days since the device’s launch, these – and a few more – features still ensure that the Galaxy S10 remains one of the essential smartphones this year. Here are five of the best.
Immersive display and sleek design
It will not be the least of the exaggerations if we say that the Galaxy S10 is one of the most beautiful smartphones created in the history of Samsung. Samsung Galaxy 10 screen made of glass and metal, the phone looks surprisingly lightweight for a device that has been displaying a curved AMOLED screen of 6.1 inches.
The S10 curves fuse seamlessly into the phone’s metallic structure, capturing not only the user’s eye but also an unquestionable identity that maintains links to the previous generation Galaxy S handsets. As a cleaner, the front without a notch would have preferred, the S10 with its high close-to-body ratio and the immersive AMOLED DCI-P3 panel is a delight to watch movies and play.
The panel used by Samsung in the Galaxy S10 can reach resolutions WQHD also supports HDR10 +, which, when combined with compatible content, promises impressive visuals.
Samsung Galaxy s10 Emblematic performance
The Samsung Galaxy S10 brings the Android 9.0 Google Pie with the One UI from Samsung at the top. As we mentioned in our review of two other flagship devices, despite being a skin a mile away from the stock solution Google offers, One UI is exceptionally user-friendly and delivers dependable performance.
The phone’s interface combined with the Samsung Exynos 9820 8nm octa-core chipset, consisting of – 2 cores of 2.73GHz Mongoose M4 and two centers of 2.31GHz Cortex-A75 and four cores of 1.95GHz Cortex-A55. The pair of chipsets for a Mali-G76 MP12 GPU. The configuration paired with 8 GB of RAM and up to 256 GB of internal storage, which can be expanded up to 512 GB via microSD.
This master hardware configuration paired with Samsung’s One UI ensures that whether you’re surfing the web, multitasking between applications or even playing graphics-intensive games, the S10 works like a charm.
Device benchmarking also generated similar results, with the device recording an impressive Antutu score of 335,128. On the Geekbench, he scored a score of 4518 and a score of 10332.
The convenience of three cameras
Since its launch, Samsung has talked about the image, taking advantage of the feat of the Galaxy S10. The phone has been slow compared to the best in the business.
And rightly so.
In terms of specs, the configuration of the rear camera on the Galaxy S10 is quite impressive. On paper, it’s mostly the same already seen in the Samsung Galaxy S9last year, but that comes with some significant updates and additions.
While the 12-megapixel wide-angle lens – f / 1.5 and f / 2.4 – and the 12-megapixel sub-f / 2.4 – telephoto lens are the same as last year, Samsung did a better job of configuring the S9, adding a new ultra-wide 16-megapixel lens to the mix. The particular lens with a f / 2.2 aperture brings a human eye like 123-degree vision to click on extra-wide images.
In the real world, this ultra-wide lens adds a whole new way of looking at pictures and clicking photos that fit in more space than you would be able to use a standard smartphone camera.
For users who create videos, the Galaxy S10 offers Super Steady recording with digital stabilization technology. In addition to extravagant tricks such as Live Focus portraits, the phone also allows users to take 960 frames per second, Super Slow-mo videos that play 0.4 seconds of recording in 14 seconds.
In-Display Ultrasonic Fingerprint Scanner and more
The Samsung Galaxy S10 also comes with an Ultrasonic Fingerprint Scanner – which claims to be the first in the world of Samsung – that reads the 3D contours of a fingerprint, to improve anti-spoofing. Samsung also added facial unlock capabilities to the phone to make it easier to unlock the device.
The phone is also water and dust resistant with an IP68 rating. It ensures that the Galaxy S10 can remain submerged in about 5 feet of water for up to 30 minutes without losing functionality.
But if that is not enough to persuade you to buy the phone, the Galaxy S10 also brings with it a heart rate monitor along with several other exciting features.
Samsung Galaxy s10 Battery and PowerShare Wireless
The Galaxy S10 packs within the sleek structure a 3400mAh battery that despite being smaller than the one available on its older brother, the Galaxy S10 + is more than enough for you to spend the day on a single charge.
The battery also supports fast charging via USB Type C using the adaptive 18W charger that Samsung packs in the carton.
But that is not all. There are also Wireless Charge features in the phone as well as an option to revert the charge of other standard Qi wireless support devices.
