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.

S10e looks good to me as ... moreI agree, even icons from MIUI look far more elegant than those from the new One UI. 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.
Does it support macro shots? Do you need autofocus on wide angle to take macro shots?
Kudos to Samsung for creating such beautiful phones that have practically no major compromise in feature set. I should also praise them for sticking to what they already had instead of trying out stupid ideas like putting a speaker on a charging port unlike some other companies, and yes, they kept the good old headphone jack! S10 is easily on the top in the list of phones I might buy this year. The reverse wireless charging sounds pretty cool too, though I wonder how much battery it will drain by using this feature as its power output is relatively high at 4.5W.
However, I gotta say that the cameras, the feature I care about the most, are quite underwhelming. Those low light samples look miserable with very pronounced corner softness and strong HDR artifacts, no details left on the floor tiles. Apart from the additional ultra wide angle lens it's essentially the same camera setup as last year's S9, no doubt that P30 Pro's quad cameras will trounce it with ease. Anyway I'll wait for in-depth reviews to come out to see if it's really worth getting one for myself.
How about you guys stop paying too much attention to the camera for every new phone and focus on what is important.
Android phones, no matter what the brand is, are always better year by year. So, it depend on whether you would like to spend your money for phone every year or you skip the currrent phone for 2-5 or even 10 year. Samsung S10 family is surely better (sorry, I am not Samsung fan or paid by Samsung to say, I just admit it, Samsung is still a rival of iPhone head to head, so it must be good)
The punch hole camera turns me off on this new S10s. I rather see bezels than punch hole or notch.
Meh nothing new. One UI seems good but covered with cartoonish icon. S10e looks good to me as its compact & flat screen. Dont mind the holes, embrace the future.
Now eagerly waiting for Huawei P30 series.
Recow, 20 Feb 2019Do you always have to wake up the phone with the power button to be able to use the fingerprin... moreNo. It works with screen turn off, thats the advantage of these new fingerprint reader
till the installation of 5G networks in my country.. Samsung will implement 10G support..
Ram, 20 Feb 2019S10e is the herooo!!!I agree, but still it is to expensive compared to S9
Ugh, that green color is gorgeous, and it's not coming to the US! As a female, I'd rather have the green than that orange-looking pink.
marbles, 20 Feb 2019(5G) "Another ToF camera (...) on the front, replacing the 8MP secondary snapper of the Galaxy... moreNo, they're right. The ToF camera has TWO sensors (NOT image sensors so they're different). There are both an emitter and a receiver. Same on the back.
I dont understand why someone would spend around 1k on a phone just to flaunt and feed their ego, keep your 6s or get a budget android and get an ipad pro or even better, the budget ipad 9.7 - donate the rest to the poor or just buy something for your family or loved ones.
