10 best highlights of the Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10+

1. Infinity-O Display with HDR10 support - The Flagships from Samsung has always been the best in the market and even when the rest of the market has adopted the notched design, the Korean Giant has resisted the trend and has decided that a punching a hole to accommodate the camera or cameras is a better design choice. We agree, and the punch hole on the Galaxy S10e, S10 and S10+ are designed perfectly with just the right size and spacing. The other benefits is that the notification icons on top aren’t squeezed in like most implementations from the S10’s competitors. The Display is also now HDR10 compliant which means you can view HDR content to its full potential may it be from streaming services or your own content. 

2. New 8nm Exynos 9820 processor - Unlike its competitors, Samsung has chosen the 8nm process over the 7nm adopted by the likes of Apple and of Huawei. This does not mean the new Exynos 9820 is a slouch though, leaked and official benchmarks has shown that it competes with Apple’s A12 chip that up until now has yet to find a decent rival in raw power. 

We will update this article with benchmarks once we get our hands on a review unit.

3. Ultrasonic in-display fingerprint sensor - Samsung has finally brought in-display fingerprint sensor technology to its phones but unlike the competition that uses light to illuminate the fingerprint while a camera takes a picture and compares its to an original sample, the ultrasonic scanner uses sound that is able to scan a 3D model of the fingerprint including each ridge or grove on your finger faster and in a more secure manner. Samsung says that the level of security is on par with a 3D Face ID.

4. Triple Rear cameras! - The Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10+ both have 4 cameras at the back and an additional 1 front facing camera for the S10 and an additional 2 front facing camera for the S10+. The rear cameras are made up of a 12MP wide standard lens, a 12MP 2x optical zoom telephoto camera and an 16MP ultra wide camera.

5. 4K UHD with dual pixel autofocus comes to the front facing camera - No other flagship raises the bar with the selfie camera unlike Samsung. The new Selfie camera of the S10 or the dual selfie cameras of the S10+ now support 4k UHD at 30 frames per second with dual pixel autofocus. This means you can now take front facing camera footage with the level of detail of 4K with one of the best autofocus technologies in the market! This effectively ups anybody’s Mobile phone V-logging game aside from Samsung’s great track record of great performing selfie stills camera.

6. Power Share or Reverse Wireless charging - Huawei shocked the world when it introduced reverse wireless charging by charging an iPhone with their Mate 20 Pro late last year. Samsung is bringing this feature with the S10 and S10+ but will be a superior XX watt charging. This means that it will be able to charge your other wireless charging supported devices at a faster rate.

7. 3.5mm headphone jack - Almost every flagship in 2018 has given up the 3.5mm headphone jack for a USB Type-C dongle but Samsung Galaxy S10e, S10 and S10+ have again been resilient and remains to be one of the few phones with a dedicated headphone jack. Even though bluetooth has become incredibly powerful, quick and stable, nothing is simpler and faster than plugging the 3.5mm headphone jack into your phone. 

8. Up to 12GB RAM and 1TB of internal storage - Aside from retaining the microSD card slot, Samsung is bringing us up to 12GB of RAM and up to a 1TB of storage. Personally, I’ve only consumed half of the 128GB storage of my Samsung Galaxy Note9, but I am not complaining. This is a perfectly good excuse to download more from Netflix and Spotify while recording as much memories in 4k with the rear cameras and the front facing cameras.

9. One UI - Incased you missed it, we reviewed the new Android skin from Samsung when it arrived for our Note9 that you can read more here. In short, it is a radical change from the old TouchWiz/Samsung Experience that allows for an easier one handed use while being incredibly lightweight which results in the snappiest animations, app launches and navigations we’ve ever had from a Samsung phone.

10. Samsung Galaxy’s ecosystem - Over the years, the Korean giant has developed devices that not only supplement their smartphones but devices that allow you to do more. This includes the Galaxy Watch, the Galaxy IconX wireless earbuds, DeX and the like. This stays true with the new Galaxy S10 series with new devices like the new Galaxy Buds, the new wireless charging pads, wireless charging power bank and the 20+ cases for the Galaxy S10 series that will be available along side the phone from Samsung! 

Most of these features are not radical changes or that new, but what excites us is that Samsung is polishing their offerings to cover their short comings while also improving upon the competition by making sure that when they add the latest and greatest innovation, they make sure it is up to a high standard. 

This is clearly seen with the ultrasonic fingerprint scanner which is more secure over and more reliable than the optical in-display fingerprint scanner of the competition. Of course we would like radical new features for the price we are paying for our flagships, but I wouldn’t say no to a more polished and more secure implementation. 

We do hope Samsung will introduce innovative features in the near future as well.
