The ultimate 2020 Review of Samsung Galaxy S10 5G
This is the 5G version of Galaxy S10. The overall quality is excellent, but since the price is much higher than that of competitors and the 5G network is not yet as widespread, it is still better to choose another model.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 5G arrived on the market with Android 10, so there are no problems for security and compatibility with apps and other devices.
The 6.7″ screen with a resolution of 1440 x 3040 pixels is much more pleasant than that of other models and is also very quick to react to commands.
One of the strengths of Samsung Galaxy S10 5G is the good battery life: in our usage scenario, its 4500 mAh allow it to reach 38 hours, a value above the average.
The 225.9 GB of actual available internal memory (256 GB declared) are a lot, certainly enough to store our data.
One of its weaknesses is the fragility: in fact it did not pass the drop test.
Models in this price range are usually very powerful and this mobile phone is no exception: therefore, it can be used without problems even for tasks that require high performance, such as some video games.
Among the most interesting functions are: the presence of the fingerprint reader, being water resistant, , supporting Fast Wireless Charging 2.0 and being able to charge Qi-certified devices and some Samsung wearable devices like a wireless charger.
This model is compatible with 5G connection.
Samsung Galaxy S10 5G has four rear cameras (the main one of which is 16 Mp) which allow you to get good quality photos, except in situations with low light, where they only reach sufficiency.
This mobile phone has two front cameras, the main is 10 Mp, which allow you to take pictures of just sufficient quality, so selfies are not exciting.
- It’s a 5G model
- The screen quality is excellent
- Battery life is good
- The photos taken with the rear camera are of good quality
- The version of the operating system is recent
- It is one of the most expensive models
