If you're looking for a less expensive option with a high-resolution curved screen and a headphone jack, the Samsung Galaxy S10 might be the right choice for you. On the other hand, the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE offers better battery life, a larger screen size, and a higher screen refresh rate, which provides smoother visuals, at a higher price. Both have OLED displays and good camera systems, but the S20 FE is newer, likely with improved camera performance. The S20 FE also supports 5G connectivity, which could be important if you want faster data speeds and future-proofing your device. Choose the S10 for cost savings and if you prefer its unique features, or the S20 FE for more recent tech updates. 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."

Android Authority

Eric Zeman | March 2023
"The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE is a fine phone. The flat display glass may turn off some, but the 120Hz refresh rate turned me on. I really liked the overall size and usability of the phone, and the six different colors mean you’ll likely find a version to suit your personal style. Other pros include solid performance, excellent battery life, and straightforward software."
