Samsung Galaxy S10e Review : Why Not? - Galaxy User Guide

What's up guys? I'm Kip EHD here and this is the Samsung Galaxy S 10 II with a lowercase e small note. It is kind of a direct answer to the iPhone 10, they aren't hiding that in any way like it's the same price but hardware wise, it's kind of a step up in every direction that isn't battery. So it got me thinking, why not just buy the S 10 e. So the best way to explain the S 10 you use to tell you what is different to the regular S 10 I will link the review here or below the Like button for those who haven't seen it yet, but it's a very similar phone. This is everything that is different, so the big three are the cameras, the fingerprint reader, the new display and the price.

Zoomed in photos will now be digital zooming instead of the switching to the telephoto camera, and that is alright with me and keeping the ultra wide camera is sweet. That's the new camera for the Samsung phones this year and as I said in the review it is the most fun. It is still a little softer and a little more processed than the main camera in these pictures, definitely not as crispy, but this is something that the software updates will continue to improve on. This s10 has a good old classic capacitive fingerprint reader on our button on the right side of the phone and when we come back from the s10 to use this again man it's really easy to forget how good we got at this type of fingerprint reader.

It kind of became the gold standard before we began to move from them and we wanted all the screen space. Then we started placing them on the back of the phone on the side but these fingerprint readers are really fast. This one here on the s10 II is just about one of the fastest fingerprint readers I have ever used, and there are others that are so fast, but it just feels so much faster. Coming from the s, tens are all true, sonic reader. It is situated in the power button on the top right hand side, but the power button is still kind of high on the side of this phone. Since the phone is smaller it's not as big a deal now and with bigger hands it's even less of a deal but just a little lower of a button that would have been perfect.

So the reader is basically in a natural rest position for righties or for people who hold the phone in their right hand, and on top of that there's even a gesture in the settings you can turn on, where you can swipe down to pull the notification shade so that the favorite reader becomes a kind of gesture pad and it's super responsive, maybe even too sensitive. It's super helpful not to have to reach to the top of the phone every time. So basically, you pick up the phone and you just sort of hold it in a natural resting position, unlock it instantly and then get access to the notifications.

It is not as technically cool as the under glass ultrasonic fingerprint reader, but you could argue it's actually better than what you get on the s10 and some already have it. It's still strange to call a 5.8 inch display small, but it is true and it is still dynamic, AMOLED still has a sharp high resolution. It is still 20 - 80 by 1080 to have a hole cut out in the upper corner. Then again, this makes for amazing wallpapers and still super bright and colour accurate, as you'd expect from a Samsung panel. And with that you end up with slightly thicker and more noticeable side bezels, but barely and it looks all relative still to an iPhone 10s.

Remember that Apple had all the talk of curving the OLED display to make the chin thinner and to get the edges all really close s. 10 e has the same side bezels and the chin, maybe two or three millimeters taller. Also, one thing that I noticed is the S 10 e. Doesn't allow you to choose your displays screen resolution like the bigger s, 10. I'm not really sure why I'd guess it has something to do with the pentile display matrix they're using, but in either case it's kind of set and forget out of the box, and it looks good so assuming you don't hate the hole punch.

This is still a fantastic display, other little things, six gigs of ram in the base model instead of eight, not really a big deal I think it was if it was for you that I would probably be concerned about that, but six gigs of RAM seems like enough and eight are still on the upgraded model. As you know, this is the biggest power draw so that this is still a pretty good battery life phone and then the color. So long as we are drawing parallels to the iPhone 10, you might have noticed that the es10 has a bit more color than the s 10. Even honestly, even the red monstro sensor and all my coloring ability will probably not do it justice via your screen, it's really pink, but not only are the aluminum rails a little colorized.

It's a small touch black on the s10 on the s10 II, but it's basically it for this phone. It is a better deal matter of fact with the hardware, what you get and with a much better display and a headphone jack and all these other things a truly large camera I.

Think it's a better deal than the iPhone 10 for a lot of people that wouldn't even matter because they simply want another iPhone, but if you're not yet too tied into the ecosystem or if you're looking to get out of it, then why not that? Okay here you should buy the larger high end phone if you need the ultrasonic fingerprint reader or the infinity display or 2x telephoto camera, or if you just have a bigger $200 hole burning in your pocket other than that Galaxy S, the 10a is probably the one most people should be able to find either way..
