These are great phones but terribly overpriced. I'd buy an S10+ in a heartbeat if it was $599.
As-is, it's far too expensive.
How come that Samsung provided the selfie camera with f 1.9 aperture, and the 2016 flagships for example the S7 Edge has f 1.7 ??
Someone dare to explain ?
Anode, 02 Mar 2019Or even better wait for the p30 pro and get the mate 20 pro at a killer price :) I already have my own Mate 20 Pro and will be getting a P30 Pro for review.
Note9 User, 02 Mar 2019...."while the Mate's battery lasts longer, plus it charges faster.".
Only GSMA can explain... more...."while the Mate's battery lasts longer, plus it charges faster.".
I don't know if they were referring to their professional use or personal experience, probably both.
So that conflict can easily be explained because the Achilles heel of both the Mate 20 Pro & the XS Max are standby times, but as the tasks and usage are more intense the battery runs out before standby times can become a factor.
You can see this if you multiply the workload by 4= 4hrs of Calls, Web browsing & Video playback:
(Move all sliders to (Max) 4:00 hrs):
Now you will see the result in Custom Rating:
Mate 20 Pro= 31hrs
Galaxy S10+= 29hrs
XS Max= 25hrs
So all lasting a full day (24hrs) under a heavy but realistic workload.

Only GSMA can explain that comment in the S10+ conclusion.
There is a conflict because GSMA's Endurance Rating for the S10+ is 91h:
v's the Mate 20 Pro's 85h (but it's 91h if you turn it's FPS off), scroll down to battery life:
Anyhow I'm sure both are true all day (24h) batteries, or all weekend with light use.
But then it goes on to say, "The iPhone XS Max doesn't charge faster than anything, but that's hardly a dealbreaker. Another awesome screen, comparable battery life, ..."
So maybe the iPhone XS Max & all other phones with an Endurance Rating of =>79h also have an all day battery:

DxOMARK=109: Photo=114: Video=97
for the back camera's as your Huawei Mate 20 Pro, but the selfie camera's score higher on the S10+ (96 v's 75).
It'll be interesting to see a head to head when it's finished, maybe GSMA will do one too (when they're not too busy).
DxOMARK has posted a short version of the Samsung Galaxy S10+ camera review & will expand to a full-format review in the coming days:

I have seen almost all camera comparisons. Based on my own preferences/opinion the S10+ is a little better in camera performance, take in consider that this phone will get updates to boost camera performance. I can even tell you that i like the photos in daylight of the Iphone more than the S10.
The upcoming Huawei p30 will definitely beat all phones.
Recow, 28 Feb 2019The s10+ has better battery life, you can see a real life example : https://youtu.be/Qgqinn... more"Take the Huawei Mate 20 Pro, for example. Like the S10+, it too comes with a triple camera and its tele has even more reach than the one on the Galaxy, plus its ultra wide angle cam has autofocus, which the S10+'s doesn't. On the flipside, the Mate takes dismal selfies, while we're really loving the ones out of the Galaxy. The S10+ packs a more powerful chip (the Exynos version, at least), while the Mate's battery lasts longer, plus it charges faster."

My S5 is considerably sharper than the S10 here when comparing grasses and tree branches.
Fingerprint reader issues?? Does Samsung have people giving feedbacks on prototypes and correcting them before release? This is enough of a problem for me to return mines within the 14 days return window. And for the folks who don't have this two weeks window to return, Samsung failed.
Zack @ JerryRigEverything: Galaxy S10 Durability Test - Ultrasonic Fingerprint Scratched?!:
I dunno, it seems hard to believe that the S10+ camera would be so much worse then s9 or even S7 in the studio samples. Something is fishy here. Either the sample is wrong or the testing phone unit is bad or faulty.
I just can't imagine Samsung would let their new flagship have such bad camera compared to last year, considering it's supposed to be the same sensor.
Anonymous, 01 Mar 2019A finger print reader that is unreliable. What a total failure.uhhh the sensor has been shown to work flawlessly when you just tap it and take your finger off instantly. it's pretty quick and quite impressive.

New update improves photos and scanner.... I believe there is a reason why other websites are not rushing with the review.
