Verizon Wireless customers who would like to get the fastest mobile connection speed in the US can now grab the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G from retail locations or with free 2-day shipping. However, this handset does not come cheap — the retail price of the 256 GB variant is US$1,299 (for 512 GB of storage, the buyer should cash out US$100 more).

For now, there are not many options available for those who want a 5G handset. However, the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G is one of the best flagships currently available on the market — 5G-capable or not — and, just as expected, it has just been added to Verizon's portfolio (the product page).

After a short pre-order period, Samsung's 5G flagship can be purchased from Verizon retail locations or directly from the company's website. In this case, the buyer does not have to pay anything extra, since Verizon is offering free 2-day shipping to all US customers — as long as they are not living in Alaska or Hawaii.

The two color choices are Majestic Black and Crown Silver. They have no impact on the retail price, but the storage capacity does: the 256 GB model comes for US$1,299.99 and the 512 GB Galaxy S10 5G has a price tag of US$1,399.99. For those who choose to go with 24 monthly payments instead, the monthly payments will be US$54.16 and US$58.33.

The Samsung Galaxy S10 5G is — according to DxOMark — an excellent performer when it comes to mobile photography and video shooting tasks. However, taking full advantage of its 5G connectivity potential might take a while (you might want to check out these tests performed less than two months ago in downtown Chicago using 5G-capable Motorola handsets).

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
