Samsung Galaxy S10+ Review

With Apple pushing its ultra-premium iPhone models to the market and Huawei increasing its market share, Samsung needs to innovate continuously. The Galaxy S10+ puts the flagship Galaxy S series to a new height with new features and design.

The Samsung Galaxy S10+ has good performance, long battery life, amazing screen and beautiful design finish. Its cameras are fun to use and the fingerprint sensor is reliable with ultrasonic technology. Charging the S10+ is easy because it can be wirelessly charged. There are also microSD card slot and headphone socket. All of these are packed into a lightweight device that’s easy to hold and use. It’s clear that Samsung is making great strides in improving experience and software. So, the S10+ elevates beyond its Android rivals.

It’s true that the S10+ is just another iteration and it is not entirely perfect, like any man’s creation. Accidental touches can be a slight irritation and the battery life isn’t really spectacular. Also, its high unit price will make many people reconsider the Galaxy S10e and the regular Galaxy S10.

The Galaxy S10+ has robust chassis that refuses to flex. The build quality and finish are amazing. Just hold the phone and inspect it for a minute, you will realize that you are looking at a technological marvel. Its camera produces significant photo quality in daylight and results are fairly good at night. The ultra-wide feature is functional and practical if you often travel outdoor.

The display is a pure work of art with HDR10+ technology, which is the first ever available in the market. You’ll see that the display is sharper and more detailed, while the colours are really pronounced.
