Samsung Galaxy S10+ review

27 February 2019
Punch out a hole in the display, add an extra camera on the back, do the mandatory yearly updates to the internals and you'd end up with a Samsung Galaxy S10+ - that is, if you started out with an S9+ if it wasn't obvious. Only that would be oversimplifying it, and we'd rather explore the nuances.

The S10 low-light sample images are really terrible. Terrible noise reduction, low amount of details. That's likely significantly worse than the Note 9 or the Galaxy S8.

Saw the 10+ in a store the other day. A gorgeous device, but they seem to have made only minimal improvements to the camera output. Shame, because they are high spec devices.

From the charger plug type, this looks to be the European Exynos version, right ?

Not impressed by the battery life. I was expecting 100+ hours. If this gets 91, how much will the S10e get ? Granted, it has a way smaller screen with less pixels, but the stand-by power draw of the new Exynos seems to be an issue.

How did they came with this idea ? You can't even compare hole to a notch

What a disappointment, boring phone without innovations

Anyway, now that this actually came out and it turned out to be as mediocre as expected...

Who's hyped for the P30 Pro?

Not impressed at all I’ll keep my S9 plus.

Impressive, but hardly exciting, though it's at least good that excitement and hype didn't cover the failings of this device, unlike another phone. I just wish Samsung could've done more with those phone. So much potential, yet they still played out safe

"the software correction for the ultra-wide camera photos which we thought wasn't available. It is. Both toggles are under Save options in settings."
Gsmarena, can you post sample images with the software correction?

Seriously, why??

Gsmarena "There's another thing that's more perplexing. There are two modes on the selfie camera - wide and slightly less wide. It's a bit misleading because the wide one actually uses the entirety of the sensor (well, the entirety available at the selected aspect) and produces full-size selfies, while the tighter one simply crops the center and you end up with smaller images (10MP and 6.5MP in 4:3, respectively). But why?"
Why not. This way you get a fixed digital zoom option, so you don't need to pinch-to-zoom , which takes more time. A crop has the advantage that you don't see the perspective distortion of the edges or you can compose better when you adjust the difference for less perspective distortion.

There was update today that should've completely change fingerprint scanner, can you guys please add that as an update to the article ASAP? I would love to know is it already sorted. Thanks

Btw. Did you have S10 too? I think many of us would love to see review of that one

Sorry Samsung but it's not any improvement over S9 and still you use the horrible plastic look to images. Night photos are horrid
