Samsung Galaxy S10e Review: Why Not?

  • Published on Mar 12, 2019
  • Galaxy S10e is a better deal than the S10. And a better deal than the XR. It's a flagship disguised as "premium midrange"

    I love this phone, I'll buy it next week. I don't get why some don't like the camera and want to hide it. It is what make the s10 series unique (I only dislike s10 plus dual camera). Without that dot camera, it would resemble any other borderless smartphone. As much as I hated the notch (I hated it from the first moment I saw it on the iPhone X, I had an iPhone 7 back then, switched several times between iPhones and Samsung's in many years), as much as I love this infinity O display. Actually the S10e is how I would have liked the iPhone X to be. I suffered the first months when I switched back to Android because I was used to the ecosystem, but now I don't regret it. And one UI looks really nice. Can't wait to have the s10e in my hands 🤤

    I just bought one of these because I like the size of it. I do a lot of outdoors things so something that fits in a pocket easy is great. And I also wanted something with a flat screen again after dropping my S8 plus and having the screen get busted. The phone would have been fine if I could have had the type of case that you can get for flat screen phones. The ones that lock the phone into the case with a protector over the screen and everything.

    I was premium Galaxy user up until iPhone XR.
    I made move because of evil google censorship , lack of privacy & security.
    I love XR iOS performance and battery life.
    it’s truly great device but user customization freedom sucks & restrictive.
    Perfect example is Apple Iwatch , it doesn’t allow data stream for 3rd party music apps such as Pandora etc.
    In order to stream you must purchase Apple Music which is overpriced crap app.
    Anyway I’m @ device crossroads & it sucks

      +TewPaqs If you think you would drop the phone, why not go for the cheaper one? I would choose one plus for a more immersive and smooth screen experience.

    • TewPaqs
      TewPaqs 6 days ago

      bizmonkey007 First of all, what I’m saying is the insides of the camera, yes it can be retracted but depending on the height, from hip height it usually won’t retract. Regardless, that’s not even what I’m saying, I’m saying what if the motor inside the phone gets damaged due to the impact whether you drop your phone on the screen or back. I don’t believe people will be bothered saving 30 dollars and get the 6 gig over the 8 gig model and so the battery life will still show not much improvement. The review I saw it from was a camera view from mrwhoseboss I think and I saw another video today regarding the camera and apparently they aren’t going to bother fixing the issue with the wide angle view recording. You can find this issue on Marques Brownlee’s video on the phone where he regards it.

    • bizmonkey007
      bizmonkey007 7 days ago

      The camera has a built-in protection for drops and automatically retreats into the smartphone body as soon as a drop has been detected. As for battery life, I've read and watched mixed opinions. The Verge, I believe, said the battery life was stellar and the phone lasted a day easily. MKBHD used the 12Gb model, which combined with the hi-res display, is going to have a far more aggressive toll on the battery (the 6Gb model probably has better battery life). More RAM typically equates to worse battery performance. As for the camera, it's neck-and-neck with the S10, but the S10 seems to have slightly better detail and richer colors. As for recording video using the wide-angle lens, I can't seem to find any reviews that mention that issue. Where are you reading/watching that?

    • TewPaqs
      TewPaqs 8 days ago

      bizmonkey007 The oneplus 7 pro has a motorised front facing camera which can be a risk if you were to drop the phone and the motor gets damaged as well as the fact that the phone is huge and heavy, as big as the s10 plus and heavier than the note 9! Not to mention due to the really good screen you have bad battery life and the ultra wide camera lens on the back is said to have somewhat blurry shots when zoomed in and overall a bad look to the photos taken by it. At the moment you can’t even record videos on the ultra wide camera lens! That may be a problem for some people. I’d say just get the s10e.

    I think everyone is missing the MAIN point here... The SIZE... it fits better in hand and pocket, many people that would buy the s10 and s10+ wont becuase of the size, regardless if specs are "better"... why can't they make the phones with different sizes??? I have to get the s10e because it is a nice hold... i dont want a ipad in my pocket lol.

    I would get it but to me battery life is everything and that 3100mh for that price doesn't cut it for me so I'll just stick to my one plus 6t for now till the note 10 comes out

    • dreammyw0w
      dreammyw0w 7 days ago

      6T is a good phone. Only the camera sucks compares to the S10e. I wouldn't swap to the S10e either, if I were you.
      But I have to add that the battery isn't that bad to be honest. I can easily make it through the day with 30%-40% left. Charging only takes < 2h.

    personally, I would prefer to just not have a selfie camera and get a perfect bezel-less screen instead. Why would I even want a camera dedicated to taking pictures of my ugly mug? Especially if that camera is ruining a perfectly good screen with some dumb hole punch.
    First company to drop the selfie camera gets my money immediately.
