The Samsung Galaxy S10e is a budget-friendly option with a compact design, offering a durable glass back and a 5.8-inch OLED screen without curved edges, a feature some users prefer for its simplicity. It has solid performance with a Snapdragon 855 processor and 6GB of RAM, sufficient for everyday tasks. The 128GB storage is ample for most users and can be expanded via SD card. The device operates on Android and is equipped with convenient features like a headphone jack and wireless charging, although at 15W, it isn't the fastest. Its dual-camera setup, with 12MP main and 16MP ultrawide lenses, offers basic capabilities; however, both photo and video quality are considered poor compared to newer models. Battery life is average, lasting around 7 hours, and it includes a side-mounted fingerprint sensor for security. If your priority is cost and a no-frills phone that covers basic needs, the Samsung Galaxy S10e could be suitable, but for advanced photography or longer battery life, you might look elsewhere.

The Verge

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."
