If a lower price is your priority, the Motorola One 5G Ace is the more affordable option. However, the Samsung Galaxy S10, despite being older, offers a glass body, a smaller but higher resolution OLED screen with a higher peak brightness, and superior camera capabilities overall, including a telephoto lens not present on the Motorola. The Galaxy S10 also supports wireless charging and has a higher-quality build. In contrast, the Motorola One 5G Ace has a longer battery life and larger screen, which may be better for media consumption and gaming. Both run Android but expect more frequent updates with Samsung.

Mark Knapp | February 2021
"The Motorola One 5G Ace is on the affordable side, but you don’t get a phone that will expire quickly. It proves plenty speedy for most uses, and has 5G support to get you onto the latest cellular technology. With a 6.7-inch display, the Motorola One 5G Ace is about as big as they come. The display is plenty bright, as sharp as it needs to be, and even offers HDR to round out the package."

Caitlin McGarry | October 2022
"The Galaxy S10 offers superfast performance and a beautiful display, with a less distracting camera cutout than on the larger, pricier S10 Plus. If all you're looking for is a well-rounded, well-crafted Android flagship that can do it all — including work with a pair of good old-fashioned wired headphones — for a price you can sleep easy at night spending, the Galaxy S10 remains an unbeatable proposition."
