Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus review

The Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus is one of a few flagship smartphones that many of us had a eyes on. Being a tenth era indication of Samsungs many innovative and modernized smartphone series, a Galaxy S10 Plus comes with high expectations, generally when a prototype was an iterative, or rather an unexciting ascent over a Galaxy S8. 

As expected, a association expelled 3 models – Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10e and a bigger and improved Galaxy S10 Plus. The Galaxy S10e is Samsung’s take on covering a 50K cost bracket, while a S10 is for those who like a some-more accessible phone or need to save some money by holding a cut on a battery, shade widen and front camera. 

The Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus is a aloft chronicle like all Plus variants conflicting brands. As a name suggests, it’s somewhat bigger and offers a large 6.4-inch edge-to-edge arrangement with Samsung’s new ‘punch-hole’ pattern for front cameras.

There’s a lot to like about a Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus and really small to dislike.

So what creates a Galaxy S10 Plus an engaging upgrade?

The initial thing is a immersive edge-to-edge arrangement with 93.1% screen-to-body-ratio with somewhat winding sides. It also gets a new in-display ultrasonic fingerprint sensor underneath a glass. A outrageous 4100mAh battery with Wireless Powershare feature, that is means of retreat charging smartphones that have wireless charging support. 

Moreover, a 3 cameras on a behind make for a versatile camera setup where a newly combined far-reaching angle lens is usually magical. There’s also a telephoto lens that lets we take advantage of minute close-ups from a distance. 

The pattern shares a similarity with a Galaxy S-series, though it’s conjunction identical nor boring. It looks overwhelming and has reward created all over a body.

The Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus has a 6.4-inch AMOLED arrangement over S9 Plus’ 5.8-inch arrangement and equal to a one we saw on a Galaxy Note 9. The tip and bottom bezels have got a cut, ensuing in 93.1% screen-to-body ratio. 

As we all know, Samsung is one of a few OEMs that avoided regulating nick on their flagships final year and went with a new Infinity-O arrangement that has a laser-cut hole in a tip right corner.

In a bid to grasp some-more and some-more shade to physique ratio, OEMs are now slicing down on a widen of a nick and regulating a pop-up camera. But punch-hole is a latest trend that’s held adult newly as an choice to a notch. While a smaller S10 has a round hole in a display, a S10 Plus has a capsule-like hole in sequence to reside dual lenses. 

The nick is placed on a right where we customarily see icons like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and mobile signal, and a all-important battery life percentage. we privately didn’t find it distracting or uncanny for that matter. At slightest it looks conflicting from a rest of a phone with a nick design. 

Also note that a dual front cameras tumble in a presentation bar area, that means they don’t get in a approach while immoderate content, browsing web and similar. While you’re gaming, a black bar is practical to that area identical to how it is finished on phones with a notch. Since it’s a high-resolution AMOLED, a blacks are so low that it effectively creates a hole disappear.

The Galaxy S10 Plus shade boasts a 1440 x 3040 QHD+ resolution, that is stretched over a high 19:9 aspect ratio and provides a pin-sharp 526ppi pixel firmness – in short, this is a big, rarely minute display.

Similar to a final era flagship, Samsung keeps a default shade fortitude to Full HD+ (2280 x 1080p). It’s finished to preserve battery power, though we can always maximize a fortitude to high from a discerning toggles. FHD+ is an good fortitude for a arrangement so good, generally when it is means to automatically adjust to aloft settings when we bucket adult a 4K film or a striking miserly game.

HDR10+ support is a outrageous addition, that also creates it a initial phone with this capability. HDR10+ fundamentally enhances a contrariety and tone of a pattern outlay to make it demeanour abounding and crisp. It’s an critical perk for film buffs.

It is not a totally bezel-less arrangement as there is still a substantial black area during a tip and bottom of a screen. But it has elegantly winding edges, vouchsafing pixels widen over both a edges. 

However, we did find out that a smaller bezels lead to some-more random touches, that gets irritating after a point. It also creates it formidable to play games in landscape mode, generally PUBG Mobile where there are so many movement buttons during a edges of a screen. 

The Infinity-O arrangement is a face of a Galaxy S10 Plus and it looks impressive, with bright, colorful facsimile creation it a best for calm expenditure and gaming during a price.


While a face is totally new, a behind of a Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus shares similarity with a predecessors. However, you’ll find pointed improvements and surprises new and old.

The support is aluminum as usual, though it’s somewhat slimmer than that of a S9 Plus. The front and a behind is lonesome in well-spoken Gorilla Glass 6 with a potion winding during a edges. It comes in Prism White, Blue and Black, though we chose a White various for a review.

The 512GB and 1TB versions are corroborated by ceramic instead of glass. They are accessible in possibly white or black. Unfortunately, we did not get a possibility to have a correct demeanour during it yet, though we’ll refurbish it as shortly as we get a hands on it.

The behind of a Galaxy S10 Plus is neat and really aesthetic. Especially, a white various looks overwhelming with that black colored plane camera procedure in a center. The centralized position of a camera procedure also helps it lay easily on a surface. At least, that is what we favourite a many on a white variant. The behind has a prism-like tone changing finish, that is really something new though also utterly biased to criticism on.

Let’s also not forget that Samsung continues to offer IP68 certification, creation it a dust/water resistant device.

Samsung altered totally scrapped a thought of putting a fingerprint sensor on a behind this time. The sensor performs an invisible trick, it’s now embedded underneath a potion of a display. After a two-year hiatus, Samsung finally found a resolution in Qualcomm’s ultrasonic fingerprint technology. 

The 3D indicate of your fingerprint is pronounced to concede for some-more accurate unlocks and be some-more secure than a visual scanners on a likes of a Huawei Mate 20 and Vivo V15 Pro.

It’s not a fastest in-display fingerprint sensor we’ve used, and that’s since visual readers located outward of a display. The clear animation also creates it demeanour a bit slower, and that is accurately a conflicting of what it’s ostensible to do. 

Even with that speed, you’re looking during no some-more than a second from fixation your finger on a sensor. Also, we need to request somewhat some-more vigour on a in-display sensor and we can’t clear it though looking during a phone as there’s no earthy shallow to beam a finger. There’s a fingerprint idol on a shade where we keep your finger. Lastly, if you’re formulation to insert a potion shade guardian on a display, make certain we check if a in-display fingerprint sensor works with that on.

The good partial is that it’s some-more secure and a correctness has also increasing after a final update. It now has some-more than 90% success rate.

If you’re not fondness a fingerprint experience, we can opt for a reduction secure though most faster face unlock. It is really fast.

The Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus measures 157.6 x 74.1 x 7.8mm, roughly a measure of a S9 Plus – a new phone is a bit shorter, a tad wider, and noticeably thinner and lighter – and feels improved in a palm than a physically bigger Note 9 with a 83.4% screen-to-body ratio. 

It feels good in a palm and it’s also utterly easy to reason with one palm for a ‘Plus’-sized handset. But note that a neat pattern with potion on both sides make it an intensely sleazy device. We would advise we to use a cosmetic box that comes inside a box as it adds adequate insurance though unfortunate a demeanour and feel of a phone. 

During a hands-on before to a launch, a initial pattern smirch that we remarkable was a high chain of a power/lock key. It does not tumble underneath a healthy mark where a ride lands while holding a phone. This competence sound like nitpicking for some, though these sum matter to others.

On a left side, there’s a volume rocker and a dedicated Bixby button. Pressing this launches Samsung’s partner immediately, giving we discerning entrance to a features. You competence finish adult attack a Bixby symbol incidentally meditative it’s a volume down key, though that’s usually until we get used to a phone. 

We’re blissful that Samsung still has a 3.5mm jack notwithstanding that neat body. It’s placed right subsequent to a USB Type-C pier during a bottom. 

It’s good to see that Samsung retains a decade-old underline on a latest S-series flagship, notwithstanding a fact that it’s also rising it’s wireless Galaxy Buds. 

Lastly, there’s one some-more cause we contingency know before we deposit in a overwhelming Galaxy S10 Plus that it’s going to cost a explosve if a arrangement is damaged. With that sleazy chunk of potion comes vigour of gripping it safe. That’s a common regard in all such phone, including a new iPhones.
