Samsung Galaxy S10+ is now Consumer Report's best-rated smartphone
It may only be March of 2019, but Samsung has already attained an important title for its Galaxy S10+ flagship. Consumer Reports has deemed it to be the best-rated smartphone. This assessment was made based on a number of criteria, including its reliability, camera count and robustness.
The outlet tested this phone's durability by dropping it into a metal tumbling device 100 times and dunking it in water. The Galaxy S10+ reportedly emerged "unscathed" following this treatment. The S10 line has also survived other similar tests, including JerryRigEverything's characteristic process on YouTube. Consumer Reports also praised the S10+'s improved cameras and battery capacity.
However, the authorative ratings outlet also criticized the S10+ in terms of the intermittent nature of its fingerprint scanner's hit-rate, as well as its unprepossessing reverse wireless charging. In addition, other customer reports revolving around the S10 line are also sometimes less than glowing: they have found that its cellular reception can be buggy, and that Exynos variants can suffer from proximity and battery drain issues.
