Samsung Galaxy S10+ Factory Unlocked Phone with 128GB (U.S. Warranty) Prism Black
I’ve been using the Samsung galaxy s10 plus for three days at this point and it’s a phone I really like but this morning I had a friend come up to me who is a Samsung user he’s running the s8 and he asked me is this a good function I get it now this is someone who has been itching for the s10 for quite a while he’s skipped the s9 he’s been waiting for this particular phone to come out and he asked me is it worth getting and I was like yeah it’s a great phone I think you should get it and he’s like but would you buy it like obviously you got a review unit to check out but would you go out of your way to spend money and upgrade a phone to this and I thought about it and that’s what this webste is about the question made me think about this phone in terms of its value like what features on this phone or what particular hardware on this phone makes it something that I want to buy and I’ll tell you right off the bat it wouldn’t be the big one the as 10 plus that I have here this is the review unit as cool as it is as nice as it looks this is not the model.
Double Front Facing Camera
I would buy the double front facing cameras isn’t something that it would use very often plus I like the look of the circular hole punch instead of this pill shaped one but all of the s10 models have this super clean looking front with thin bezels and every time I pick up a different phone like the s9 or the iPhone 10 those screens just look so much more dated to me compared to this new super clean front because like notches and bezels just they were a thing in the past but the s10 just removed so much of it to the point where it just looks it looks so different it feels like just a completely different kind of phone now there are so many other hardware features on the s10 and the s10 Plus that are really cool like the battery sharing to be able to power other devices wirelessly off the back of the s10 is just like.
it’s cool it’s a feature that I know I would never use very frequently because I’m not someone that has a lot of wireless devices like I don’t wear smartwatches my earbuds don’t charge wirelessly like that but for the Samsung ecosystem it’s awesome it just makes a lot of sense and if this was a feature that was available on iPhones like a lot of Apple users would just love this feature because it just makes sense and to see this feature come onto
25% better battery life
The battery life on this phone though feels kind of unremarkable in the presentation they’re talking about how it has up to 25% better battery life compared to the last generation but it’s still considered just an all-day battery and I still had to charge this thing every night I am using it pretty aggressively right now but it’s definitely not like a 2-day battery at all.
Generations of Samsung software
I also want to talk about the UI it’s now switched over to Samsung’s one UI it is a lot better I will give them credit for that but it still feels quite Samsung II I mean there’s a lot of nice features on it that don’t feel as superfluous as older generations of Samsung software has but you still have apps that you can’t remove and even though you can kind of remap bixby this time like you can switch it to either a double or a single tap you can’t completely remove bixby functionality but the software feels a lot cleaner than anything else we’ve seen from Samsung before now if you are someone that needs or really wants like quick adoption of Android updates I still feel like Samsung lacks in that regard like their updates come a lot slower than other companies like the pixel devices obviously but if you don’t care too much about immediate updates the software is excellent this year.
Ultrasonic fingerprint sensor
One feature that I found a little bit underwhelming was actually the fingerprint sensor so it’s using an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor it uses sound waves to detect your fingerprint and it’s a little bit slower than I thought it would be but the biggest issue I have with it is that I’m still having issues when my fingers away it still doesn’t read all that accurately or all that reliably and I just thought that the ultrasonic system was gonna fix that but this is an engineering sample it may be something that can be improved over time or maybe mine is just not great but a little bit underwhelming in my opinion.
Price the s10 and the s10 plus
I want to talk about pricing because that’s probably the most important question when it comes to whether or not I would buy one and the s10 and the s10 plus are devices that are very expensive but the pricing feels I wanted to use the word appropriate but that’s not really the right word it’s just that if Samsung had priced these any less and they did it wouldn’t have made sense for the company considering what they have here like they have the world’s first oled punch hole screen but the star of the show is that as 10e they hit that $750 price point with a really compelling product I think they’re gonna sell a ton of those and over the course of the year that price is gonna drop but eventually it’s gonna drop to what maybe 650 and at that point it’s gonna be so hard to beat the s10 yi in terms of value like a company like oneplus which traditionally puts out phones that are reasonably well valued they’re gonna have a tough time to beat that kind of price to performance ratio it’s gonna be I think that’s the phone to beat the as 10e I think is gonna be the benchmark phone when it comes to mid to upper tier pricing.
The camera on all these phones I was only able to use the camera on the SN plus and it’s an excellent camera but I feel like this at this point in 2019 all the flagships have such good cameras.
I feel like it’d be unfair for me to be like this is better than X Y or Z I feel like they’re all just so good overall Samsung this year three phones all three of them are just bang our products I feel like they made such good phones this year to answer the question would I buy one would I upgrade to one absolutely the one that I would probably choose personally is the s10 II I feel like that has like all the features that I want in a phone that you know is relevant to what I use then yeah as Tenny for me but I just think they’re all easy to recommend if you can afford them that’s basically it okay hope you guys enjoyed this video thumbs we liked it subs we loved it see you guys next time.
