Still no fast charging is something that I consider an absolute deal breaker. 15w, that is joke in the world of 30w 40w 50w!
And the design is so ugly and unattractive that even a $400 phone can rape it. I really don't understand that why they can't do that...
And finally I see no innovation in here. who the hell call a 4k recording on the front camera an innovation?!!! or a better display. (well ultrasound FP might be an innovation which is useless as they tend to work 50% of the time...)
Last but not least, pricing, pricing, pricing!
boring mobiles the only novelty the inverse load of the Huawei, record 4k HDR Xperia 2019 and a sensor in slow screen and with lag
S10E looks like the perfect phone that I would buy after the price drops in an year or so.
I love the S10e's specs! it's perfect for me and NOT AS HIDEOUS as I thought. I will switch my S9 (that behaves as an iPod touch) to the S10e to experience it.
Real 5G means: Small cells, D2D comm, massive MIMO, mmWave comm, beam forming. This is just another version of 4G. There are no Cat 20 (so called 5G) nets yet (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_LTE_networks, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_5G_NR_networks). Then, where are u gonna use this phone? Don't like this type of commercial manipulations. Prices are too high.
I don't have knowledge on camera and apps.
Very sorry for the negative comments :(
Recow, 20 Feb 2019Do you always have to wake up the phone with the power button to be able to use the fingerprin... moreno, mkbhd demoed that you can just place your finger on the sensor and it will wake up
Thnx a lot...
My note 9 is better than tyese craps of more expensive...
Thanks for the first impressions! My initial impression of the devices follows.
Another phone batch I'd rather skip. Very expensive and doesn't bring anything new to the table. Screen cutout? I'd rather keep 16:9 screen. Side or under display fingerprint reader? I like the fact it exists in the first place, but placement doesn't really matter, mine's in the home button and it works just fine. Telephoto camera? Been there, seen that in $300 devices. Ultra wide - same as previous statement.
Reverse wireless charging? How could I ever live without that?! But wait, my S7 just barely lives through the day, what would that mean if I used reverse wireless charging? Ah, yes, that it would kill the battery in the middle of the day. I already carry around a charger, so using it is easier than using my phone as a reverse wireless charger, so no thanks.
What else was there? New snapdragon, why? I have a gaming PC for gaming, if I wanted a portable console I'd get either 3DS or Vita or Switch. My S7 is fine for simpler games. So, again, I don't need it.
I'm glad to see flat screen returns, my S7 Flat is wonderful (except for the fact it isn't really flat and I can't install a glass screen protector on it, so I had to do with a film). I tried to use Note 9 with its curved screen and I'm not a big fan of all the curves, they just get in the way, steal a bit of the screen and provide zero utility, zero features (they don't give you anything you can't have on a flat screen but make using the device a bit more difficult). It looks cool during first impression but at a second glance you see it is absolutely impractical.
Another boring batch of phones with practically zero new features. Zero of what I'd like to see. Even Xiaomi did a more interesting device with Mi 9.
Thanks a ton ! I always wait with baited breath for your first impressions, especially for flagship launches. Your team has covered incredible details, for a first impression report. Kudos !
Just a small fly in the ointment. The following section in the report has couple of typos. Can you please fix those?
The Galaxy S10 family *** it *** (should be is) powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 or Samsung's own Exynos 9820 chipset, depending on which part of the world you're in. Historically, the two versions haven't offered dramatically different performance, though there have been advantages to either one over the years. RAM starts from 6GB on the S10e and goes all the *** way *** (missing) up to 12GB on the ceramic version of the S10+. We got an S10+ in Exynos trim with 8GB or RAM and quickly ran some benchmarks.
Shui8, 21 Feb 2019Meh nothing new. One UI seems good but covered with cartoonish icon. S10e looks good to me as ... moreThen wait for OnePlus 7, Galaxy Note 9,iphone XI,mate 30 and buy Nokia 8110 4G for happy life
Why ruin the already good design of S9? I don't need hole in my screen, while I might agree that it's less annoying than notch.
Can wait to see a review about the batery test on youtube. Trust me 10e & 10 will be got batery issue especially for gaming even u mamage your phones batery perfectly. Also your buyed it expensive then when u want to sell it back, the price will drop drastically. Plan wisely bfore buy some phone. Ask yourself are u buyed it.are u a gaming person or a camera & active sosial person.
Compact and usability wise, I think S10e wins for affordable flagship.

As for the rest of the UI it looks like a mix of EMUI, MIUI and vanilla Android which is weird considering how Samsung had the Android skin of their own style for years.
