For the past several years, Samsung has launched two flagship S series smartphones – a regular and a second plus version. But this year Samsung has also launched the third variant and is Galaxy S10e. Galaxy S10e directly bump the iPhone XR to see the US price of the phone. The price of Galaxy S10e in India is Rs 55,900 which is 10,000 rupees less than the standard Galaxy S10. Also, 2019 does not have any flagship smartphone that comes in this price segment. Let us now know about Galaxy S10e in detail.
Comprehensive review of Samsung Galaxy S10e
Galaxy S10e is the smallest and lighter phone in Galaxy S2-series of three models. The Samsung brand handset weighs 150 grams. It is 0.1 millimeters thicker than others. We liked the size of the phone. The Galaxy S10e fits comfortably, and the curved edge is not at all rough.
The aluminum and the back glass panel have a slight smoothening, so be careful when using the phone with one hand, as it can also slip by hand. The fingerprints are also easily found. But it is strong. If the phone drops, the aluminum frame may also have a permanent scratch. For example, we were taking a picture of a flower, and the phone was left with our hand. Nothing happened to the glass, but it fell on the frame to scratch.
The Biz button is given in Galaxy S10e. You can either double-press or set up a single-press action to open the app, or you can take the help of the biz. The Galaxy S10 model’s premium handset has an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor, but on the other hand in Galaxy S10e, the company has a standard capacitive sensor which has been integrated into the power button on the right of the phone.
It is very sensitive; it unlocks the phone even when you touch quick. You can also enable gestures to access notification sheds easily. It works correctly, but the placement of the power button is slightly up. Even if the phone was catching up in general, we had a little difficulty in accessing it.
The Samsung Galaxy S10e has a full-HD + dynamic AMOLED display of 5.8 inches. The resolution is slightly lower than Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 +. Its pixels density is 438 PPI. Samsung has not removed the HDR 10 + certification for the display, which means you can enjoy high dynamic creeps in the flexible video. The default color profile is slightly saturated with color, but you can switch to natural color profile if you want.
If the most significant difference in design is talked about, Galaxy S10e does not have a curved display on the right and left. The second difference is that if compared with the other two Galaxy models, the Galaxy s10e side has a slightly coarse level. Gorilla Glass 5 is used on the front and back of Galaxy S10e. In the front of its other big model, Gorilla Glass 6.
Gorilla Glass 5 helps save the phone on scratch and fall from low altitude. In the other two models, it has been given a new version that better defends the phone. You’ll get a screen guard already on the phone. Compared with other Galaxy S10 models, we notice that there are a few cutbacks in the previous part of the Galaxy s10e.
In Galaxy S10e you will find no telephoto camera but a dual-aperture. The phone has 12 megapixels sensors and an ultra-wide angle sensor of 16 megapixels. Also, another thing that you won’t find in the phone is the heart-rate sensor. In India, Samsung Galaxy S10e prism Black and prism are available in white color. The phone will provide information related to the AKG-tune headset, USB-OTG type-C to a type-a adapter, fast charger, data cable, SIM eject tool and warranty. What is noteworthy is that you will find a better-looking plastic case with the handset.
Samsung Galaxy S10e Specifications and features
Samsung’s flagship model, of course, is an affordable smartphone, but its specifications are not at all low-end. Galaxy S10e in India has been brought with 8nm octa-core Samsung Axaus 9820 processor. But it has only one variant which comes with 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage. It also has 8 GB RAM and 256 GB of storage variants available in the international market.
To talk about other specifications of samsung Galaxy S10e, it includes hybrid dual-SIM slots, Gigabit LTE, dual 4g VoIP, Wi-Fi 802.11 ax (Wi-Fi 6), Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, four satellite navigation system and USB type-C port.
Galaxy S10e is Dolby Atmos with ACG-tune stereo speakers. The phone has received IP 68 certification which protects it from dust and water and also has many sensors in the phone. This phone of Samsung brand runs on the New Forest UI (One UI) 1.1 based on Android 9 Pie (Android 9 Pie). Our handset is running on the February 2019 security patch. We recently have several Samsung phone reviews that come with the one UI.
The phone has many optional gestures and shortcuts. App Edge lets you add shortcuts to most-used apps at once. This can then be accessed by using simple swipe gestures on the home screen. You can use gestures instead of standard Android navigation buttons.
You will also receive a spammy notification in Galaxy S10e. When setting up a phone, uncheck some term and condition so that you can get a little relief. In spite of all these precautions, notifications are also received without opening the Moy Galaxy app. Notifications are not too much, but I would have been able to completely disabled them. Galaxy S10e has also been given the Google Digital developer feature.
Performance, camera and battery life of Samsung Galaxy S10e
The phone size is very accurate in using one hand. To reach the notification panel you have to stretch your hand a little. There is a punch hole on the front panel of the phone where selfie camera is found. The fingerprint sensor works correctly, but it is capacities. If your fingers are wet or they will not work. You don’t need to press the power button only the simple touch will unlock the phone.
In the previous Galaxy S model, the company had given Iris scanner, but this time it may not be able to find a place in the phone with the lack of space at the punch hole. The phone has face recognition support, but it is not as good as Apple face ID because it identifies an authentication or a call with the help of selfie camera. It works correctly, with the help of screen brightness on the face in low-light, it can quickly identify the face.
Like both other Galaxy S8 models, the general app and UI performance are also good. Despite having 2 GB less ram than the other two models in the phone, we didn’t even get to see the big difference in the benchmark number. In general use, we found that the phone’s sides become slightly warmer. Sometimes the phone sounds a little hot even when downloading apps from the Play store. If you put a case on the phone, you will not even know it.
PUBG Mobile and other games run correctly on the phone. With a powerful processor and low-screen resolution, Galaxy S10E also efficiently manage the game on high settings. The phrasal is smooth, and the one UI game launcher lets you enable Dolby Atmos during gaming.
The AMOLED display is perfect for viewing the content. The streaming app automatically sets the video as per the punch-hole area on the zoom, such as Netflix and Prime video. There is a loud sound from stereo speakers. Like the other two models, Galaxy S10e has luggage front and rear cameras. It does not contain only telephoto sensors. The performance of the phone is also material.
In daylight, the phone captures the detail from the right in landscape and macro mode. Its dynamic ranges and colors are also suitable. The Zin optimization is easily identified by the AutoDetect object, such as T-shirts, and it also helps to improve the picture. In macro mode, the detail was well captured, and the exposure also handled correctly.
The camera app can be used efficiently. Some modes have been given for photos and videos. The wide-angle sensor is handy for capturing more things in the frame. Live focus works well, and edge detection also works fine. You can also add background Blur effects if you want.
As compared to Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy S9 series, the selfie camera in Galaxy S10e will see a significant improvement. The 10 megapixels front camera has been delivered to the Samsung Galaxy s10e. The Galaxy s10e does not have an RGB depth sensor but still correctly detect the edge in the selfie.
Video recordings in Galaxy S10e have also not been compromised. Like other expensive models, this phone is also able to record up to 4 videos at 60 frames per second. Also, you’ll find super slow-mo video mode which lets you record videos at 960 frames per second.
The video quality was excellent in daylight. Stabilization is also well handled, and in low-light, there is also a nous control. A battery of 3,100 mah has been provided in Galaxy S10e. After using the camera, watching the video, surfing the internet and using the chat apps, the phone gave up for 17 to 18 hours. The good thing is that the charger with the phone is fast charging the battery.
The phone had 5 percent battery when we charged the phone, and in one hour the phone was charged 95 percent which is very good. With the accompanying wireless charger, the phone also supports wireless charging and reverse wireless charging. In our HD video loop test, Galaxy S10e played for 10 hours and 31 minutes, which might be a little better.
Galaxy S10e and Galaxy S2 + do not have all the features. But, in RS 55,900, the other two models are equipped with many features, Galaxy S8 which is very good. In India, it is a better deal than the iPhone XR, not just in terms of features but also in terms of price.
Galaxy S10e is also played with Google Pixel 3, which is usually found online for Rs 58,000. Google Pixel 3 can also prove to be an excellent option if you want the stock Android experience. We should not forget the OnePlus 6T; it has also been a good phone. The price of its 8 GB RAM and 256 GB storage variants is Rs 45,999. Its battery life is even better than the Galaxy s10e. But it won’t give you HDR display, compact size, and Morden processors.
Battery life is nothing special compared to both other models. Also, telephoto camera and in-display fingerprint sensor have not found space on the phone. In all, we think that people in this price segment will be satisfied with the features and performance of Galaxy S10e.
