Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus Review: The Best Samsung Phone Of 2019

Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus is everything you want in a phone, as long as you can tolerate its huge 6.4-inch screen and price tag

Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus is everything you want in a phone, as long as you can tolerate its huge 6.4-inch screen and price tag. The phone is the company’s highlight of 2019, providing excellent power and performance for the price.

Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus Price And Availability

This handset will set you back $849. Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus price in India is Rs. 79,000

Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus Display

The mammoth 6.4-inch display of this phone makes it the largest handset in the S line.

Another highlight of this screen is the 93.1% screen-to-body ratio that squeezes more pixels into a tighter body. Instead of a notch, Samsung houses the two front cameras inside a laser-cut hole.

The screen is Full HD+ by default but you can always bump it to QHD+ for more sharpness, colors, and contrast. While minimal bezels make for a premium look, it increases the chances of false touches.

Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus Design

Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus has thinner frames than the S9 and is sandwiched between two Gorilla Glass 6 panels. Users get the choice to acquire the phone in green, white, and ‘Prism’ white.

The phone has a flush back and a triple-lens camera setup. The volume rocker and the Bixby button are on the left of the phone. You still have the 3.5mm headphone jack onboard – a nice surprise given the current trend of omitting it.

Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus Camera

Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus’s camera array consists of a 12MP primary lens, a 16MP ultra-wide camera, and a 12MP telephoto lens.

12.3MP Primary Camera

The main dual-aperture lens allows users to take vibrant shots in good lighting, decent low-light photos even. However, photo quality lacks consistency.

Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus is one of the best camera phones for 2019 since it is capable of producing shots with punchy and bright colors. Compared to it, iPhone shots look rather muted.

However, the low-light ability leaves much to be desired. The phone tends to smooth people’s faces in an effort to denoise shots.

16MP Ultra-Wide Camera

The ultra-wide lens on the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus can cram a 123-degree field of view into photos – an ability Google Pixel 3 doesn’t have.

The catch here is the camera does produce a fisheye effect so you might want to use this lens for group shots and sweeping landscape only.

Live Focus Portrait Photos

Users have some extra options with Live Focus on this phone. The standard background blur effect is still there but accompanied by Zoom, Spin, and Color Point effects for more arty photos.

10MP and 8MP front-facing cameras

On the front, users are treated with a dual-camera setup consisting of a 10MP and an 8MP snapper. The latter is exclusive to S10 Plus and helps with the Live Focus portrait shots.

The camera pair does a good job shooting everything save low light. However, no complaint here as this issue isn’t unique to the S10 Plus.

Camera App

Samsung has done a good job with the camera app which is easy to navigate yet fully loaded. Scene Optimizer has 10 new categories with AI to tell different subjects apart to better fine-tune shots.

Video Quality

Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus sees a lot of upgrades in its video apartment in 2019 with HDR10+ recording and Digital Video Stabilization.

The stabilization ability puts the phone on par with GoPro Hero7 Black and recording with a gimbal. The S10 Plus is the first Samsung phone to have support for HDR and the benefit it brings is to keep the scenes from being overexposed.

Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus Battery

Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus features a 4,100mAh battery that can comfortably last for more than a day. The big screen does take its toll on the battery life here so what you can expect is around 10% to 30% of battery life left at night.

The phone comes with an array of power-saving modes with the most aggressive can squeeze hours of use from a few percentages left in the battery by disabling everything but a few key apps of your choosing.

Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus Performance

Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus specs are top of the line and the phone can rival even the best gaming phones on the market. Depend on where you are, you will have the phone with either Snapdragon 855 chip or Exynos 9820 chip.

The high-end chip is paired with RAM of 8GB. Geekbench scores put the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus very close to iPhone XS in terms of speed.

The phone comes with 128GB out of the box with around 110GB available for you to use. If you are in need of more space, there is a microSD card slot that supports up to 1TB.
