Samsung announced five new Galaxy phones in February. Three of them, the Galaxy S10 ($ 1,000 at Amazon) and are already on sale. The Foldable will be released on April 26th. The last, the will sell some time in summer (especially Q2).
In a way, Samsung's lineup is an embarrassment to wealth. Another, it is a confusion for buyers who want an easy choice. You probably only buy one if you choose a Galaxy phone. How should you decide?
As a professional reviewer, I am allergic to making final assessments before the thorough test is completed. Now that I haveand are currently looking at the smallest, cheapest Galaxy S10 phone from Samsung, (which is currently running), I have one Feeling for whom these phones are.
I have now practically tackled the Galaxy S10 5G and the Galaxy S10. And while we're still waiting to touch the Galaxy Fold – we've "seen" them behind glass layers and in video – I've seen enough of a competitor's device, the to find out who a foldable phone could turn to.
That's a long way to say I'll try to tear down who each new Samsung Galaxy phone is designed for, but only if you promise to understand that, that's not a definitive buy recommendation and my thoughts can change after you have checked all the phones well? Well. Below is a complete comparison of the data.
Cost : $ 750, £ 669, AU $ 1,199
Screen Size : 5.8 inches
Competition : iPhone XR ($ 750 at Verizon Wireless) OnePlus 6T ($ 645 at Amazon) Galaxy S10
What It Is : E stands for "Essential." The Galaxy S10E is the smallest and cheapest Galaxy S10 with the most basic specifications. You'll still get the same front and back cameras, processors, Android devices and designs as the larger and more expensive Galaxy S10 phones, but without so much beautification. The fingerprint scanner is in the power switch. The lifetime of the battery should also be screwed back.everything has been delivered so far.
For whom : All, but especially those who want a Galaxy S10 for less and people who like a smaller phone
When was it bought? :.
Galaxy S10 Plus
Cost : $ 1,000, £ 899, AU $ 1,499
Screen Size : 6.4 inches
Competition : iPhone XS Max ($ 1,100 at Amazon) OnePlus 6T, Galaxy S10
What it is : The largest and most affordable Galaxy S10 phone on most cameras: three on the back and two on the front. Phenomenal battery life and options of 512GB and 1TB that come with a ceramic spine. This is a superb, all-phone phone with great photography and few compromises. Read my.
For whom : People looking for a premium premium phone and those who like a widescreen device.
Buy it :.
Cost : $ 900, £ 799, AU $ 1,349
Screen Size : 6.1 inches
Competition : iPhone XS ($ 1,000 at Amazon ) LG G8 ThinQ, Pixel 3 ($ 749 at Walmart) OnePlus 6T, Galaxy S10E, Galaxy S10 Plus
. What's this? : Between the S10E and the S10 Plus, this is a head wizard for me. For $ 100 more you get more. And for $ 150 less you get almost as much. So why bother? My best guess is that the carriers want the S10 to be a medium sized device in their portfolio. I have not tested the S10 yet and therefore can not say for sure whether it is worth the money or whether you should choose another S10 phone instead. However, it is likely that this standard S10 will see many seasonal sales and offers, and if you see a good one, you probably will not go wrong if you buy it. Further information on the.
For whom : Still to be determined, but probably people use a promotion or those who strongly prefer the size. 19659003] When to buy it :.
Galaxy S10 5G
Cost : TBA, but more expensive than the Galaxy S10 Plus, and requires a 5G service plan
Screen size : 6.7 inches
Competition : Each Galaxy S10 Plus
What It Is : Samsung's first 5G trial, which will theoretically be operational when 5G networks are online. It's the largest of all Galaxy S10 phones, with four cameras on the back and two on the front, including a 3D sensor for each side. This is the only S10 that can capture portrait videos (the embedded video shows it in action). I have the.
for whom made: Early 5G users. However, interested buyers should be aware of.
When to buy It : Summer in the US
Cost : $ 1,980 for the 4G model; TBA for the 5G Version
Screen Size : 6.7 inches
Competition [Huawei Mate X] (including
What It Is : A foldable phone that opens into a tablet, with a 4.6-inch exterior screen, a 7.3-inch interior screen, and six cameras. Under Android 9 Pie, the idea is that you unfold it to get more details. Multitasking includes up to three live screen areas simultaneously. I named itthat I "saw" for years.
For whom : Samsung describes the Galaxy Fold as a "luxury device". I add that it is a status purchase for those who can burn cash.
When to buy : : It will be sold on April 26th.
