Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G

87.2% Samsung Galaxy S10 5G Smartphone Review: A turbocharged S10 with a cutting-edge addition | Notebookcheck
Samsung announced the Galaxy S10 5G at MWC 19, but it has taken a while to arrive in Europe. It is bigger, has more cameras and has a larger battery than its S10 siblings, but there are some trade-offs too. Samsung has not managed to eradicate the issues we had with the rest of the S10 series, either. Read on to find out more in this detailed review.
Samsung Galaxy S10 5G review: To infinity and beyond
Source: Pocket Lint English
It's hard not to view this 6.7-inch phone as an 'S10++ with 5G'. But it's an accomplished device. Sure, the cameras aren't pretty, and the Note 10+ throws a spanner in the works, but if it's 5G you want right now then the S10 5G is the option to go for, as it's lighter and smaller than its main rivals.

The Galaxy S10 5G is a smartphone for early adopters who don’t mind paying for the privilege. Its huge display is great for videos and gaming, it’s a sleek phone despite its size, and Samsung’s UI is smooth. Just how good it is will come down to where you are, but if you want to futureproof your smartphone, you won’t find a 5G phone with more bells or whistles than the S10 5G.

Cutting-edge everything never looked this good; while 5G isn’t where it needs to be for mass adoption just yet, at least this piece of 5G hardware will have you future-proofed with sensational snaps and a stunning screen for streaming video.

As of July 2019, we don’t recommend a 5G contract given the high cost, sparse coverage and minor speed gains. Despite this, the Galaxy S10 5G is an incredible phone with class-leading design, cameras and display. One UI is Samsung’s best ever interpretation of Android, the 4500mAh battery is generous and thanks to the bezel-less design this 6.7in phone isn’t too huge. This would have been a five star phone if it weren't for the fact 5G prices simply aren't worth the expense.

Samsung’s S10 5G is a Bigger, Better S10 Plus — Australian Review
Source: Ausdroid English
The most succinct way of describing Samsung’s new S10 5G flagship phone is the S10 Plus Plus. Samsung have taken all the recipe ingredients that made the S10+ an excellent phone and modified several hardware aspects including the cameras and adding 5G capability to enhance it further. Since that’s the case we suggest you first read my colleague Duncan’s excellent review of the S10+ and then follow up with my review explaining the differences between the S10+ and the S10 5G.

In many ways, this is the ultimate version of Samsung's 2019 flagship device. It's got the largest screen, most cameras and biggest battery. If you're planning on fully embracing 5G this year it'll likely be one of the best picks.

Samsung Galaxy S10 5G front camera review
Source: DxOMark English
Thanks to small improvements in several test categories, particularly for video, the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G has taken over the number one spot in our DxOMark Selfie ranking from its cousin, the Galaxy S10+. Most consumers considering a purchase of the S10 5G will be mainly interested in the device’s connectivity features, but selfie shooters will be very happy with Samsung’s latest top-end phone as well, thanks to a very well-balanced approach to texture rendition and noise reduction, as well as to an efficient autofocus system that ensures good subject sharpness across a wide range of shooting distances. Moreover, target exposure and color rendering leave little to complain about, all of which adds up to making the S10 5G our best-performing front camera to date.

Samsung Galaxy S10 5G camera review
Source: DxOMark English
Overall, the Galaxy S10 5G performs slightly better than the excellent S10+ in our tests. Samsung’s move to 4K default resolution for video, and a beneficial switch to using the telephoto camera for bokeh effects in portrait mode, give the 5G version a 3-point score bump to put it at the very top of all our tested mobile devices. The S10 5G also gets to claim the title of being the first smartphone to score 100 points for video. Buyers of the 5G version of the S10 may be primarily interested in its next-generation connectivity, but will get improvements to photos and videos as an additional benefit.

Galaxy S10 5G hands-on: Bigger is better
Source: Sam Mobile English
It obviously doesn’t make any sense to buy the Galaxy S10 5G if you live in a market where no 5G networks will be going live. If you do happen to be located in such a market and are willing to be an early adopter, you really can’t go wrong with the Galaxy S10 5G. We just hope Samsung will offer some of the 5G model’s hardware, such as the four rear cameras, on the standard Galaxy Note 10.

Model: The Samsung Galaxy S series has been an appealing world-renowned lineup since the beginning of the Android smartphone revolution back in the year of 2010. With its simple but innovative design, the Samsung Galaxy S has captivated the hearts of many. Though an unfortunate turn of events, which involves built-in batteries that are prone to explosion, has caused rather serious harm to its long-lasting name, Samsung never once wavered from its position in the global market and presses ever on to strive for the best to climb the ladders of modern innovation. This year, Samsung has once again knocked it out of the park through the introduction of the Samsung Galaxy S10 – one of the first very few smartphone models to feature a 5G connectivity. As we navigate through a new era whereby millennial influencers are the trendsetters of today’s society, the expectancy for 5G connectivity on smartphone has seen a sudden surge in demand. Samsung might have foreseen this potential outcome, and as ever prepared, incorporated a support system for 5G connection to be established in its Samsung Galaxy S10 model. The 5G connection unlocks faster data speed on the Samsung Galaxy S10 while operating with super low latency when browsing through the Internet. The Samsung Galaxy S10 is one of the first few Android smartphones in existence to support such stellar connectivity while paving way to a new era of modern connection.

In terms of design, the Samsung Galaxy S10 measures up to 6.7 inch on screen display alone. Through the adoption of the Infinity-O Display ideology, bezels are minimized through accurate laser cutting technology in order to create a cut-out in the upper corner of the phone. The front camera, as it is nowhere to be visibly seen on the front display of the Samsung Galaxy S10, is actually being discreetly pocketed into the aforementioned cut-out. This creates a clean and smooth immaculate finish for the frontal design of the phone without compromising the quality of picture. The iteration of the Infinity-O Display further allows the physique of the Samsung Galaxy S10 to harness an ergonomic design for a more comfortable grip. The Samsung Galaxy S10 features up to six pro-grade cameras that are wired with enhanced artificial intelligence in order to capture the most breathtaking and scenic pictures. This pro-grade Hexa Camera idealization houses a 16 MP Ultra Wide Camera Lens, which captures an elaborate landscape view with its 123 degree field of vision. The 3D depth camera implemented in the Samsung Galaxy S10 uses a ToF camera technology to scale depth and distance, which elevates video filming experiences on the Samsung Galaxy S10 to a whole new level through the intuitive function of Live Focus.
