Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus can be termed as the radical reinvention of the smartphone. This masterpiece is an incredible and avant-garde representation of the tenth anniversary of the Galaxy line.
Definitely, this new creation of Samsung is not lacking in innovation or ambition.
“Galaxy S10 builds on [an] incredible legacy, and delivers breakthrough display, camera, and performance innovations. With four premium devices, each built for a consumer in mind, Samsung is leveraging a decade of industry leadership to usher in a new era of smartphone technology,” said Samsung President DJ Koh.
Why Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus Creating a Buzz in the Tech World
This model is counted as the world’s first phone with an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor built. It comes with a 6.4-inch Infinity-O display. And, also the first Galaxy phone with five cameras and you can’t miss the ultra-wide shooter on the back.
It is the fastest Android and the credit goes to its Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 855 processor. The best part that is surely a thing to die for is the PowerShares feature – allow you to use the back of the phone to wirelessly charge other gadget and phones.
What all We can Expect from Samsung S10Plus – the New Generation Smartphone?
We all are living in the time, where posting candidate pictures on Instagram are a ritual. And, tacking with bad battery life and inability to shot in low light is something we hate.
Indeed, it is important that we have a smartphone that does it all for the millenniums.
The question arises “Will Samsung S10 plus is a hit or miss?” Let’s find out!
The Galaxy S10 Plus is a refreshing breakthrough in terms of similar designs for the last few generations of Samsung handsets. It is a smart and lovely looking phone.
It has a 6.4-inch display phone, that displaces the front camera and its triple-lens rear camera can take ultra-wide photos. You may not easily spot them; it has an in-screen finger sensor. And, the Wireless PowerShares is a perk for tech lovers like you. There are a plethora of nifty and innovative features in Samsung’s creation.
With a 93.1% screen-to-body ratio, the pixels now stretch from the small top speaker down to the thin bottom chin and spill over the curved edges to the left and right.
It has more hidden underneath the glass as well, with an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor on the front and a powerful 4,100mAh battery. The sensor works quite well and you can scan your finger from multiple angles. The 3D scan of your fingerprint is said to allow for more accurate unlocks and it is better than an optical fingerprint in terms of security.
You can keep your personal stuff secure without adding any additional application.
The ultrasonic technology means the sensor will continue to work even, if your finger or screen is wet or cold – two scenarios, which can cause issues with optical scanners.
You can spot the triple-lens camera with a small camera bump on the cleaner-looking back of the phone. And, it allows you to take telephoto, normal, and new ultra-wide photos, just like a pro. In simpler words, it enables you to capture more of what’s in front of you without requiring you to back up.
The S10 Plus’ 4,100 mAh battery lasted an epic 12 hours and 35 minutes on our web surfing test, beating every major flagship phone in the last year.
With any hesitation, it would be right to say that the new ultra-wide camera produces notable results and the Pixel 3 offers better image quality.
This is the fastest Android phone, thanks to the Snapdragon 855 processor.
The Galaxy S10 Plus has an Infinity-O display that looks great, but the two punch holes for the front cameras can be a little distracting.
You can say that the oval shape attracts more attention than the single lens of the Galaxy S10 and S10E. More or less, the display of the phone gives you a feeling of having a large screen with slim bezels.
And, the stylish yet, simple of the phone is not calling too much attention to itself. Surely, this is a plus point for Samsung’s beauty.
The draw for us so far has been the 93.1% screen-to-body ratio, as Samsung has found a way to fit more pixels across a tighter body, which as a result has seen a reduction in the size of the already-slender bezels above and below the display.
Well, if you are concerned about the ‘punch-hole’ display, you need to understand one simple aspect – it enables you to click better selfies. After the debuting of the Honor View 20 (had a single punch hole), Samsung’s biggest phone includes two front-facing cameras, not one. So, it should not sound weird to us.
For the initial usage phase, the punch-hole display may seem a little devastating to use, but it hardly hinders your experience in long term usage.
The icons for battery life, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, mobile signal and other apps may look a little more squashed together, but there is still enough space for four to five separate app notifications on the top of the phone’s display.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus does not give you a familiar look feeling like the other Galaxy models. And, the credit goes to the new screen. You will find subtle improvements and surprises new and old.
It has an aluminum frame is thinner than the S9 Plus and smooth glass – common in most versions – makes it look great and stylish. The 512GB and 1TB versions are been created in ceramic, either white or black. It can retain all of the scratch resistance of ceramic material. Moreover, 128GB Galaxy S10 Plus comes in Prism black, white, and green.
One downside to the fingerprint scanner inside the Galaxy S10 Plus is speed. It’s not as quick to recognize your print as optical readers located outside of a display.
The phone measures 157.6 x 74.1 x 7.8mm. Well, somehow the rough dimension of S9 was a bit a tad wider and taller. But, when it comes to easy access and handling, Galaxy S10 plus feels better in the hand.
What I want to say, the Galaxy S10 Plus is surprisingly easy to hold in the hand, despite its glass and metal finish.
Similar to other Samsung’s versions, on the left sits the volume rocker and smart assistant Bixby. You can even give quick access to voice commands.
From a decade, the unchanged 3.5mm headphone jack is still ruling. It comes back at the bottom of the phone along with the USB-C port.

Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus Price and Release Date
Now, comes a really important fact that when is the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus releasing in India and other parts of the earth. The Release Date is set for March, which is one week prior than the Galaxy S9 Plus timeline last year.
With features like Infinity-O display 6.4″, On-screen Fingerprint Sensor Position, OS Android 9 and many more, you should be ready to pay a little more than other Samsung Galaxy models.
The price for S10 Plus starts at $999 / £899 / AU$1,499 / AED 3,599. That’s for the model with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. If you one of those, who love to have a number of applications and images, you can get the internal space expanded up to 512GB. This will cost you $1,249 / £1,099 / AU$1,849.
There will be the third variant of the Galaxy S10 Plus that Samsung is calling the ‘Ultimate Performance Edition’. This S10 Plus packs in a mammoth 12GB of RAM and huge 1TB of storage with an equally monstrous price tag of $1,599 / £1,399 / AU$2,399.
Samsung is offering pre-order bonuses with both the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 Plus. In the US, the UK and many other countries, reversing either phone before their official release dates get you free Galaxy Buds worth $149 / £229 / AU$249.
In order to complicate your buying decision, the S10 5G is also on the way. It has a 6.7-inch screen, four rare cameras, and Time of Flight capabilities designed for yet-to-be-seen augmented reality purposes.
The new phones are available to pre-order (21 February), but officially on sale on 8 March. In case you pre-order before 7 March, you can get a free pair of Galaxy Buds wireless earphones.
12.5 hours of battery life and innovative features. Is all that worth $999? Based on my market research and tests, yes. But, the final verdict – whether buying Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus is a thumb up or flop, is still debatable.
But, one thing for sure this Galaxy model is a refreshing breeze for tech geeks.
