Samsung Galaxy S10 is the next big flagship from Samsung that is aimed at taking things up a notch. The build quality right from the word go is top notch. The glass sandwich design is a delight to hold in hands. It fits perfectly in hands. At 6.1-inch size, the phone can be used single handed. We were able to reach all corners. The curved edges don’t hurt your hands even after prolonged usage. The punch-hole display offers an impressive screen-to-body ratio for media and gaming experience. At 157 grams, it doesn’t feel heavy nor bulky in hands.
Moving to placements, up front we have the 10MP front-facing camera placed inside the display, the usual set of sensors, and the capacitive buttons are placed within the display. On the right, you have the power and volume rocker buttons which are tactile and offer good feedback. While on the left there is just Bixby button. The USB Type-C port, primary microphone and 3.5mm audio jack are present on the bottom. There is a SIM tray with a dedicated microSD card slot and secondary noise cancellation microphone is present on the top. The rear is where you find the triple camera setup, LED flash, Samsung branding. The back is sealed, so the battery isn’t removable. Overall, the build, design of the Galaxy S10 is premium in every angle.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 sports a 6.1-inch Quad HD+ (3040 × 1440 pixels) Curved Dynamic AMOLED display. Samsung displays over the years have proven to the best in industry and they are even rated as the best by DisplayMate recently. It offers vibrant colours, deep blacks and punchy whites. It is HDR10+ compatible which means you can play high dynamic videos in the best quality. This around, Samsung has further cut down on the bezels on all corners offering a truly edge-to-edge display for an impressive media and gaming experience. There is a punch hole camera to accommodate the selfie snapper and this takes a small part of the display.
The display comes with Corning Gorilla 6 protection, meaning it can withhold drops and scratches to an extent. Since the phone doesn’t come with an oleo phobic coating, the panel attracts fingerprints quite easily. The software also provides an option to tinker around the display resolution and colour temperature depending on one's taste and requirement. There’s an always-on-display which gives a glance of your notifications without turning on the screen.
The viewing angles are good, we didn’t notice any off angles or colour distortion even when viewing the display from extreme angles. Colours, text, image look sharp and accurate. Overall, the display of the Galaxy S10 is top notch.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 is powered by the Exynos 9 Series 9820 8nm processor with Mali-G76 MP12 GPU and 8GB RAM. With flagship chipset on board, one would expect a lag-free performance no matter what you throw at it. The phone was able to handle almost everything we wished to run. It opened and loaded apps almost instantly. Thanks to One UI, which is light and stable, the UI animations and transitions are smooth too. It was able to handle multitasking with almost 8-9 apps actively running. Moving to the gaming department, we played a wide range of games including PUBG, Asphalt 9, Nova 3 Legacy, Mortal Kombat and more. These games ran perfectly fine without any lag or frame drops.
During our testing, we didn’t notice any heating issues, which is a good thing. It comes with an ultrasonic in-display fingerprint sensor which is considerably faster than the optical in-display sensor. Overall, the performance of the Galaxy S10 is rock solid and the fastest Android phone we have tested so far.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 packs triple rear camera consisting of a 12MP Dual Pixel rear camera with LED Flash, a 12MP Telephoto lens, a 16MP 123° Ultra Wide sensor with 0.5X/2X optical zoom, up to 10X digital zoom. There is a 10MP shooter on the front for selfies. The camera interface has been slightly tweaked; all the shortcuts are now moved to the bottom part of the app for easy navigation. There is live focus aka portrait, panorama, video, photo modes available. Bixby vision detects objects in the frame and AR Emojis is a knock off Apple’s Animoji feature.
Moving along, the picture quality in day light conditions are extremely good. There is ample amount of details, and punchy colours. Like with most Samsung flagships, the images are not entirely accurate to the actual scene, they are slightly saturated and over exposed. Some might like these kind of shots given they are social ready without needing any editing. There is portrait mode whose edge detection is nowhere close to Google or iPhone, but it works just fine. The wide-angle lens brings new perspective to the pictures and we dig them. In low-light conditions, the amount of noise is in check and totally usable. It can record 4K videos at 30 fps which is a let-down. The footage is one among the best we have seen. The front facing 10MP does fantastic job with the selfies, it also supports semi-wide angle shots which look refreshing. Overall, the cameras of the Galaxy S10 are impressive, but fall short in comparison with Pixel’s and iPhone’s.
Samsung is bundling a pair of AKG tuned earphones within the box which are in-ear style and they around incredible. Despite being a flagship in 2019, the phone comes with a 3.5mm audio jack which is a good thing. The audio quality is impressive and we didn’t hear any distortion or squeaking sounds even when playing songs at maximum volume. The default music player was able to play a wide range of music formats without any problem. The loudspeaker is present on the bottom, and your hands might block it when you are holding the phone in landscape mode. It can cover an entire room.
In terms of video department, the Samsung Galaxy S10 was able to play 1080p videos, and the playback was smooth without any issues. It can play a wide range of video formats. Thankfully, there were no heating or freezing issues even when playing high definition videos. The bezel-less aspect ratio brings more screen real estate, watching videos and movies was an excellent experience. Overall, the audio and video department does a good job.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 packs a 4000mAh battery with fast Charging support both on wired and wireless. The battery performance, in our day to day regular use which includes navigation, stream content from Prime, Netflix, YouTube, listening to songs, scroll through social media feed, browsing, and more was able to last an entire day without sweating much. The battery drain overnight and when the phone is idle was around 4-5% which is quite understandable. The battery percentage didn’t drop drastically during heavy and it is a good thing.
Moving to heavy usage, which includes video recording, click images, playing games, watch movies, the device could last until the late evening. It will require users to charge once again before we end the day. With the bundled 18W fast charger, the phone was able to charge from 1-100% in around 2 hours of time which is acceptable. Overall, the battery department of the Galaxy S10 is impressive and comes out with flying colours.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 runs on Android 9.0 with the brand’s latest One U.I on top. Having used the Touch Wiz and Experience UI, OneUI feels quite refined and simpler to use even for first timers. With smartphone display’s getting bigger and bigger, OEM’s need to consider tuning their skins for One-handed UI. In this aspect, Samsung seems to be going in the right direction. The One UI seems to be re-designed keeping in mind the single-handed usage. All the icons, quick setting toggles, menus are shifted to the bottom part of the display for easy access.
The UI also brings enlarged text and icons which makes it appealing to eyes. There is an option to disable the app drawer and you also choose whether to open it with a swipe up action or by tapping an icon. There is night mode, blue light filter for comfortable usage at night times. There are gesture support and an option to interchange navigation buttons. There is a theme store to customize the interface with themes, wallpapers, icons and more. Most of the themes are free while some are paid. The phone comes with Samsung Pay which you can use to pay at stores without having to carry cash or your debit cards. It also features Google's Digital Wellbeing which you can use to see app usage times, and more. Apart from default apps, the phone comes with Microsoft app suite, Daily hunt, Samsung apps and more. These can’t be uninstalled unless rooted.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 packs 8GB LPDDR4x RAM with 128GB/512GB storage that is further expandable up to 512GB with microSD. One UI being the lightweight and abundant RAM at disposal, the interface never lagged or stuttered. We didn’t notice apps going out of memory or crashing. Multitasking was good too. Overall, the software experience on S10 is premium.
