Samsung’s tenth anniversary for the Galaxy S lineup went over pretty well! The company announced three new smartphones with the branding, officially introducing the Galaxy S10e, the Galaxy S10, and Galaxy S10+ into the world. The handsets welcomed the “Infinity-O” design into the flagship fold, and brought plenty of other worthwhile features along for the ride as well. Of course, the price tag reflects all of that, for better or worse.
But at least it’s not the $1,980 Galaxy Fold, right?
There is a lot to like in the Galaxy S10 lineup. Whether it’s the fingerprint reader (on the side of the Galaxy S10e) being embedded in the display, or the powerful camera systems on the back of each model. The displays, as is par for the course with any high-end Samsung phone, are amazing to look at. And it sounds like the battery life this time around is actually something to write home about.
If the Galaxy S9 family was a bit of a letdown for most consumers, it sounds like Samsung has found its footing again with the Galaxy S10. I was recently in a wireless carrier store and there were half-a-dozen people in there buying new Galaxy S10’s. And I’m already starting to see the phone(s) out there in the wild, too. That big display with the small cut-out is easy to pick out in a crowd.
Each handset has been available for a bit of time now. You can pick from various storage variants, all coming down to just how much you want to pay. That means the people who have already picked their newest smartphone have had plenty of time to play around with it. Get accustomed to the new software, the changes in hardware, and either fall in love or hate the new design.
Which is why it’s about time to ask: what would you change about the Galaxy S10 if you could? For those who actually bought the smartphone and have been using it on a regular basis as your daily driver, what about your new smartphone would you change? Would you opt for a small bezel at the top to get rid of that Infinity-O design? Prefer a fingerprint reader on the back of the phone?
And for the folks out there who chose to skip the Galaxy S10, what about the handset itself would need to be changed for you to consider it? If you picked up a Galaxy S9 last year, are you skipping the Galaxy S10 and waiting for next year’s phone? Or are you planning on picking up the Galaxy Fold?
Let me know!
