Comment

Model: With the introduction of the latest generation of the Samsung Galaxy A series, Samsung has officially announced that it is replacing the J series with the A series. This means that the A series now offers phones from the low range, mid-range and higher mid-range that are almost as good as the S series. With this announcement, it has also released a few new devices and one of them is the Galaxy A10. The A10 essentially replaces the low-end phone under the J series from last year. For a start, it comes with a full screen design with relatively small bezels. It is also thin and light weight. With the reduced bezels and the teardrop notch like the rest of the bigger A series, Samsung has managed to include a 6.2-inch display. Unlike its bigger siblings, the display is a standard IPS LCD panel with a 720 x 1,520 pixels giving it a pixel density of 271 PPI. The screen is rather bright and sharp compared to the others in this price range. It is shipped with an Exynos 7884 Octa processor coupled with 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage. The phone has a dedicated micro SD slot for storage expansion. In terms of photography, it has a 13 MP camera on the rear and a 5 MP selfie camera. Nothing much can be expected from this camera as the photo quality is on the lower side. However, the rear one can produce some useable photos for regular social media posting.

The Samsung Galaxy A10 comes with the industries latest Bluetooth 5.0 and it includes the head phone jack. Inside, there is a 3,400 mAh battery to provide decent screen-on-time but is rechargeable via the older micro USB port. It comes in blue, black and red color. The Samsung Galaxy A 10 may not sound compelling enough but given its price point, it is one hell of a deal. It has a very good screen, decent performance and relatively good camera. In many ways, the A10 is a budget Chinese phone killer. It provides a better Android smartphone experience compared to what the cheaper phones from Xiaomi, Vivo and Oppo can provide. These phones may be slightly cheaper but they usually have bigger drawbacks in more than one area and the screens give away their cheaper price. User reviews have put the screen in the A10 to be better than some of the mid-range phones in the market such as the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7. Unless a person’s budget is below the retail price, we can’t think of a reason to not choose this phone compared to the rest.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
