The Samsung Galaxy S10 offers a slightly larger and curved screen, which may enhance your viewing experience, but the Galaxy S10e, while more compact, has a flat screen if you prefer that. The camera quality of both phones is great, but if you want a telephoto lens for better zoom capabilities, the Galaxy S10 has that, while the S10e does not. For longer battery life, the Galaxy S10e has a slight edge. Both phones have high-quality OLED displays, the same processor, and RAM; they also support HDR10+ for videos. The Galaxy S10 does have a higher peak brightness. If you don't mind a smaller screen and lack of a telephoto camera, the S10e is more budget-friendly and still offers plenty of features. If you want a more immersive screen and an additional camera, consider investing more in the Galaxy S10. Both phones have expandable storage, stereo speakers, and wireless charging capabilities.

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."

Natt Garun | March 2019
"You’re getting nearly the full S10 experience without spending as much money and in a size that’s a lot more appealing across demographics. If you’re looking for a good, small Android, this is a phone that I think most people will enjoy without sacrificing much in quality."
