Current happy owner of Exynos S10e (128/6GB) Prism White
1) Flat screen, Dynamic Amoled is awesome! 1080p works great! Damn thin bezels! The cut out is one of the best compromises, better than those stupid notches. No curved display which is a big plus for me, i actually quited samsung after Note 3 because they introduced the infinity display.
2) The capacitive side fingerprint scanner is very ACCURATE and fast! Love it than some fancy Ultrasonic FP that doesn't 100% work. The overall feel in my hand is very great as it is a compact sized phone and it felt magical and comfortable compared to those big ass phones (yes iphone 7 plus and those huge devices)
3) Very smooth and blazing fast, do not believe those bullshit by some ppl here saying lags or stutters. Zero issues. Built in optimiser for clearing memory and cache! One UI may seem cartoony, but i have zero issues and enjoyed those extra features that Samsung offers!
4) Camera is stellar but night time shots could be better. Video quality is on par with Iphone XS max. I say this because the video quality is really great and detailed. Wide Angle is nice to have as well ^_^
5) Audio quality is simply dope. Loud clear and rich. But it is another different level when you activate that DOLBY ATMOS. You want to enjoy music? This is the phone to get besides the LG V series. IT has a 3.5MM JACK if you are into wired audio.
6) Battery life, i can completely got a FULL DAY use with 10-15% left. Yes it is 3100 mah, but it really works wonders, especially you switched on Bluetooth, GPS, LTE, WIFI and Dolby Atmos. SOT 5-6 hours with moderate usage without gaming. Standby drain is kinda weird, not stellar, but not as serious as described by some of the ppl here. In fact, the battery drain less when you switched on all as i said above! But I do not use Always on Display and i set battery mode to adaptive mode. Just do not compare this with those phones with 4000-5000mah batteries. It has been great for me.
7) Heat and performance, this Exynos is totally fine, just that it is a glass phone, make sure do not use those cases with poor cooling space. I ripped off the original plastic screen protector (which actually makes your phone heats up!) and slapped on a Ringke Fusion case, no heating issues at all.
8) Charging is QC2.0 slower but for 3100 capacity, it is quite fast, 15W i can charge from 10% to 100% full in just an hour. No heating up at all during the charging phase! Do not believe those misleading comments here.
Overall i am really satisfied with my S10e Prism White. That form factor and convenience with one hand, perfectly wins Iphone XR and SE on every aspect hands down! (Not to mention i got it during promotion, which is cheaper and has free Galaxy Buds!)
One tip, disable background activity for those stupid heavy apps such as Facebook. You will noticed the world is a better place haha.
Buy this if you appreciate compact phones. Otherwise, get S10 or S10+.

The Pocophone doesn't function in the same countries so its not a competitor.
i got this phone on launch day so ive had it for 3 weeks now i have 0 complaints battery life may not be the best for some but for me a guy cominf from the original razer phone which imo at least had HOOOORRIBLE battery life this is a decent upgrade if your sick and tired of flagship phones being huge and bulky this may be a good choice for you
Anonymous, 22 Mar 2019It's awful, just as expected. Yeah the screen might be good but the battery life is a joke. My... moreLiar. Did you use S10e? It has a better endurance rating of 83 hr compared to your Xperia's 78 hr.

I'm glad i avoid Samsung cause they haven't delivered a flagship with decent battery in ages it feels like.. No matter how good everything is that would feel like a massive downgrade to me.
It's awful, just as expected. Yeah the screen might be good but the battery life is a joke. My Xperia 10 Plus lasts longer with absolutely NOTHING going for it..
For the price, this is Not enough time battery. Clearly a fail from Samsung. Doesn't matter what optimization companies use, We need 4000+Mah on top of it.
Anonymous, 21 Mar 2019Don't spread wrong info boy. I have s10e and it is a beast in battery department. It can get 8... more I play video games all day long, so my usage and battery life could be different from your. Today, it lasted more than 5 hours for the 1st time since I got it.
Are you using the Exynos or Sanpdragon version?
Anonymous, 21 Mar 2019Fingerprint reader is in best place for me, but i don't have small hands.I stilll prefer home button A5 etc..just pop on go ! its natural feeling. I hate having to go to the power button side of phones! i never have brain not trained.
dutchie, 21 Mar 2019I've been using xperias for past 5 years. upgraded to S10e from XZ2 Compact last week. no re... moreCurious, what made you upgrade from the xz2 compact. Looking into purchasing a compact model for cheap to mess around with and for the gym
NipponFan, 21 Mar 2019When Sony used to release compact phones all you did was bash it, and yet here we are It's 5.8 inch amoled. The definition of compact changed so much over time.
I prefer the S10e over the other siblings. Because of its value for money. S10e might not have the best value compared to a MI 9 or Oneplus 7 coming up ( approx USD 500 ish with 90% of S10e capability ). But hey folks! Those aren't Samsung ! You WONT look rich with any phone other than samsung ! Not in the android world. Wanna look rich? Buy a samsung. Period.

upgraded to S10e from XZ2 Compact last week. no regrets. love s10e
All pros except one big con: The FPS location is a tough call for small- and left-hand users.
Maria, 21 Mar 2019If you plan to upgrade from your A5 2017 and, of course, you are in Samsung ecosystem, Galaxy ... moreI also have an s8 and as much as I love compact phones, I fancy a giant phablet for my next upgrade so will be going for the S10 +. Was very tempted with the 10e but I feel its more of an upgrade going from the s8 to the 10 plus. Love the prism white, I hope we see more irridescent phones!
