If you prefer the smaller form factor with a small screen flagship phone then the gap between the Samsung Galaxy S10 and the Samsung Galaxy S10+ may not be particularly important.
Samsung Galaxy S10e:
Samsung S10e is not a flagship phone but the phone is bright in both price and appearance and is a good choice for Youngsters.
Design, Screen and Appearance:
Samsung Galaxy S10e has a smaller form factor and is smaller than Samsung Galaxy S10 and Samsung Galaxy S10+, the phone is only 5.8 inches and has a super AMOLED screen which is bright to the eyes. Samsung Galaxy S10e also brings an essence of yellow colour to life which looks lively and peppy on the other hand. With the launch of the phone with this colour Samsung strategies to gain more young buyers.
Processor and Performance:
The Samsung Galaxy S10e is powered with the 7nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor or an 8nm Samsung Exynos 9820 processor as its older sibling Galaxy S10. The phone will come in 6GB RAM+128GB ROM variant.
The Samsung Galaxy S10e is the smallest of the lot and carries a smaller battery of only 3100mAh which we feel is low compared to other phone brands. But fortunately, it supports with fast charging technology, which can make up for the slightly smaller battery capacity.
The Samsung Galaxy S10e comes with a front-facing 10MP single camera which is the same as the Samsung Galaxy S10. The rear camera is a dual setup 12MP wide-angle and 16MP ultra-wide-angle combination. In consideration with its older siblings, the Samsung Galaxy S10 lacks a telephoto lens.
Samsung Galaxy S10e comes with a physical fingerprint recognition on the side. As it comes at a lower price point the phone lacks the ultrasonic screen fingerprint recognition technology compared to its older siblings the Samsung Galaxy S10 and Samsung Galaxy S10+.
Looking at the lower price and in comparison with its older siblings Samsung Galaxy S10e still stands strong and is not a serious shrink in configuration. Thus this can be a very good buy amongst the youth.
Well, all the three mobile phones that Samsung has released have their own highlights. The Samsung Galaxy S10+ sits on the throne of the Android phones with its powerful configuration and cutting edge technology the ultrasonic fingerprint recognition. Which is certainly suitable for technology enthusiasts and people who like heavy specifications on their phone.
Although the Samsung Galaxy S10 is somewhat cut down compared to the Samsung Galaxy S10+. But when compared to the last years Samsung Galaxy S9, both the appearance and the camera have a comprehensive upgrade, suitable for the pursuit of configuration and also pay a little attention to the budget-friendly crowd.
The addition of the Samsung Galaxy S10e is a step up for Samsung while ensuring that users can get a “flagship experience” at a lower price point.
