The Samsung Galaxy S10 is a budget-friendly option with a glass body and an OLED screen measuring 6.1 inches with curved edges. This device was released in 2019 and comes with 128GB of storage. The Android-operated S10 has a 3400mAh battery and offers a full day of use on a single charge. For photos and videos, it has a main camera with 12MP but offers poor photo and video quality. The phone features a punch-hole selfie camera with 10MP and can record videos at 4K and 1080p. It has performance capabilities suitable for everyday tasks, supported by 6GB of RAM and an SD855 processor. Additional features include in-display fingerprint sensing, wireless charging, and IP water and dust resistance, but it lacks 5G connectivity. If you prefer wired earphones, it retains the 3.5mm headphone jack. Give Feedback

Tom's Guide

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."
