Design and display of the Samsung Galaxy S10e
The camera designed on the smartphone is similar to the Samsung Galaxy S10. It is the same diameter and the same quality. However, the design is not the same as there are no curved edges on this device. The glass is as flat as it is, therefore, with low aesthetics on the phone when compared to its siblings.
We also find the volume control, the dedicated Bixby button, and the power buttons on the sides of the smartphone. It outperforms others in terms of lightweight, credits for the weight of 150g. At the rear, there are two camera modules, one shy of three cameras on the bigger boys.
Unlocking your smartphone is easy but in a refined way. The index finger does not have to go all the way down; You just need to rest on the side of the phone, above the power button.
For your viewing, a large 5.8 inch AMOLED dynamic touch screen controls the show. Quality multimedia is issued by the resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels. Infinity-O’s design brings life to over 87% of the screen/body ratio, thus ensuring substantial display space.
Battery and Camera
Strong battery life is not one of the strengths of this smartphone. Even with a 3,100 mAh battery, it commands almost a day of web browsing, games, music, and video streaming. When your phone battery runs low, you don’t have to wait long for the battery to charge fully. Fast charging of the 15W battery takes care of it.
Because your phone can be charged wirelessly, it can also charge other wireless devices. That’s the idea behind Wireless Powershare, Samsung’s reverse wireless charging rebranding. In other words, the mobile phone can be called a wireless power bank.
Unlike the rear set of three cameras on the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 Plus, the Galaxy S10e comes with two rear cameras. These cameras include a 12 MP primary trigger and an ultra-wide 16 MP sensor. A dual-LED flash helps provide more explicit detail during night shots.
The device’s Neural Engine integrates AI with these professional-grade cameras for smarter photography. The same can be said of the 10MP camera located on the phone’s display.
Hardware and Software
In the hardware segment, everything else remains the same. The Exynos 9820 SoC and Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC are the chipset variations for different market regions. The first comes with the 2.7GHz octa-core CPU and Mali-G76 GPU for efficiency and graphics. On the other hand, the latter works with a 2.8 GHz eighth core processor and the vibrant Adreno 640 GPU.
Whatever chip comes with your phone, it is combined with 6 GB RAM or 8 GB RAM. Similarly, storage is in iterations of 128 GB and 256 GB. This is more than enough space to save your files, but there is even more scope for expansion via a MicroSD card. Samsung’s new user interface complements the Android 9.0 Pie operating system on the phone.
Samsung Galaxy S10e Price and Availability
The Samsung Galaxy S10e came out on March 8, 2019, in the US, Canada, Europe, India, China, and other select countries. It will ship in a total of 130 markets by the end of March, although the company has not specified exactly in which countries it will be available by then.
The Galaxy S10e sells for $ 749 / £ 669 / AU $ 1,199 / AED 2,699 for the 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of the storage version. If you want the 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of slightly more powerful storage right now, it looks like it is only available from Samsung’s US online store and will pay you $ 849 (prices are not available outside the US). ). . It is unclear whether this means that the higher price model is not available in other regions.
You can buy the Samsung Galaxy S10e from online stores in Nigeria, such as Jumia* and Konga. The phone can also be purchased at offline stores like Slot Nigeria. The Samsung Galaxy S10e has a starting price of $ 750 (₦ 260,000).
The ‘e’ on the Samsung Galaxy S10e means ‘essential,’ which means it includes almost everything the S10 and S10 Plus have at a lower price. You get a 5.8-inch screen, the same two main cameras, and battery life all day, but you lose a third lens, the curved edges of the screen, and the on-screen fingerprint sensor. This is the tantalizing compromise offered by Samsung’s ‘flagship’ and the answer to Apple’s iPhone XR. I hope you’ve enjoyed this Samsung Galaxy S10e review. Let’s hear your opinion via comment box.
