If you're on the fence, which Galaxy S10 phone you should buy, you have a tough decision to make. Theand are all excellent phones that are currently on sale. Then there is the folding which will be released on April 26, and the which will sell something this summer (especially in the second quarter). How do you choose the best for your needs on so many Galaxy phones?
I will not lie. This is a decision that you ultimately have to make yourself, because only you know if the screen size will be the mastermind ("I just do not want a phone that big") or the battery life ("I do not want to.") always have to worry "), the price or some other variable.
That is, here is my collapse of all five new Galaxys and who they are probably best for, at the end you will find a complete comparison of the specifications.

Screen Size : 5.8 inches
Competition : iPhone XR ($ 750 at Amazon) OnePlus 6T ($ 638 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, they still have the same front and back eras, processors, Android models and designs like the larger and more expensive Galaxy S10 phones, but without so much jewelry. The fingerprint scanner is in the power switch. Battery is also slightly cut back. Thesays it all: This small but powerful phone delivers on its promise.

Screen Size : 6.1 inches
Competition : iPhone XS ($ 1,000 at Amazon) LG G8 ThinQ, Pixel 3 (699 USD by Walmart) OnePlus 6T, Galaxy S10E, Galaxy S10 Plus
. What's this? : Between the S10E and S10 Plus The standard Galaxy S10 offers the performance of the S10 Plus in a smaller case. But its purpose is also less clear. It's only $ 100 less than the S10 Plus, which is not much. And it's $ 150 more than the S10E, which is such a good value. Still, it's a more than solid option for a device that's less than a plus. In terms of cost, it is likely that this standard S10 will achieve many seasonal sales and offers that make the price more enjoyable. Further information on the.
For whom : Buyers looking for a high-quality Goldilocks-sized phone and those who seek transportation.

Galaxy S10 5G

When to buy it : Summer in the USA
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.
We're still waiting to touch the Galaxy Fold – we saw it after "19459083". Glass Layers and in Video – I've seen enough of a competitor's device, the Huawei Mate X to sense who a folding phone might appeal to.
Who is it for : People who long for a device for a talk that has the money to burn.
When to Buy It : It goes on sale on April 26th.
