Is the top end Samsung Galaxy S10+ worth $1.8K?
This is a device that is a 12 hour a day workhorse and the chances are that it will be on your person every day of the week for at least 24 months.
And if smartphone research is anything to go by it’s also set to be a device that will get a pretty rough workout whether it be on your person, desk, in your car, or when travelling between cities.
This aside the real value in owning a Samsung mobile device is what is incorporated under the bonnet.
What I have found is that Samsung is one Company you can bet on to deliver technology innovation in the lucrative smartphone market and their latest S10 range of devices which this time around includes the new Fold tablet device has taken smartphone technology to a new level.
This is technology that most brands including Apple are unable to deliver because they lack not only the engineering skillset but the ability to manufacture the components found in a Samsung device. The new Samsung Galaxy S10 is actually four separate phones: the S10e (the “e” stands for “essential,”) the S10, the S10+, and the S10 5G.
The S10+ is the flagship of the trio.
Where Apple’s has the iPhone XR, XS, and XS Max there are some significant differences between how the two flagships compare.
The XS has struggled to sell so has Apple’s bottom end offering the XR due in part because Apple is charging a premium price on devices that are devoid of the advanced technology found in the new Galaxy S10 range.
The $1,800 S10+ has three rear-facing cameras—one for close-ups, one for standard shots, and an ultrawide one for expansive scenes.
The iPhone only has two lenses.
The S10+ has a massive 6.4-inch screen and an unusual “hole punch” design for its front-facing cameras. This gives the display an asymmetrical profile, but it also increases the usable space. Samsung has also delivered a brandnew fingerprint reader that has been baked underneath the screen itself. It uses ultrasound to detect the gaps between the ridges on a user’s finger, which Samsung said makes it more secure than a traditional sensor.
The S10+ also has wireless charging as well it can charge other products wirelessly, too.
Samsung also takes the crown for offering the most storage for digital media. The S10+ comes with up to a terabyte of internal capacity, which is double the 512GB maximum offered by the iPhone XS Max.
These are not gimmick features they are the best features in the world today that you will find in a mobile device.
And if you want something really different, and are not afraid of splashing your cash, there is the allnew Samsung Galaxy Fold which is set to retail for around $3,000. If you want more on this device read our story in this supplement.
