LOL, an iPhone VS random Android phone, it's like Lada Vs random Mercedes car.

In where I live P30 priced significantly lower than either of them, making it more like an undercutter rather than a direct competitor of S10e and iPhone XR.
[deleted post]To those who may ask for other brand to be compared with Galaxy S10e and iPhone XR...well, in specs/features sheet and money-based, you all are correct.
But, at least for me, Samsung is one of the Android phone pioneers which is available widely around the world and large company. Moreover, Samsung is the world's first challenger of Apple iPhone for long time ago. So, it is fair to compare both in all aspects, including the Software/UI.
Other brands may win for their specs/features only and the value for money, of course.
S10e just for the looks and more compact form factor alone. But this review is a bit unfair to the iPhone XR because it doesn't really compare to S10e imo. Anyway, thanks for the review, a lovely read with a cup of coffee in the morning.
The Huawei P30 isn't a flagship, unlike the iPhone Xr and the Samsung S10e.
The Huawei P30 looks like it has the better camera, but it's lenses are significantly worse than the P30 Pro, making it actually worse than the iPhone Xr and Samsung S10e. Not to mention it lacking IP68 waterproofing. The only thing the Huawei P30 has going for it is the HiSilicon Kirin 980 SoC, which is mildly better than the Exynos 9820 but much much worse than the Apple A11, let alone the Apple A12.
Now, the article already mentioned it, but the RRP of the S10e is actually cheaper than the Xr in most markets... but even better is the ACTUAL price of the S10e in most markets is significantly below the RRP whereas the iPhone Xr is after six months still at RRP or slightly above it in most markets.
This means the S10e is not only a better device but it is significantly cheaper. However, I would say I actually think the iPhone is a neat device, and the one that's actually better since you get 3-5 year software updates, plenty of software and hardware support, great customer service, and lastly the best resale value in the market.
....That is unless you get the S10e, with the superior QSD 855 SoC and Sony Exmor cameras, use a Tempered Glass Protector and a Matte Polycarbonate Case and install TWRP, and root/SuperSU, use a Custom ROM like ResurectionRemix, and install decent Apps for the Launcher, Keyboard, Browser, Media Player, File Explorer, Wallpaper, Camera, Gallery, Email, Calendar etc etc and plenty of MODs.

That’s because the 438ppi in the S10e is amoled, which results in 1/3 lower real resolution due to the pentile/diamond arrangement of pixels.
So the S10e has a 292ppi display in reality, which is lower thatn the XR’s 326ppi. The XR is equal to 490ppi in amoled screen specs.
The S10e has a real visible resolution of 1520x720 pixels vs. the XR which comes with 1792x828 pixels.
I skipped the XR this year because it wasn’t a good upgrade for my X, the lack of 3D Touch and only 1 camera isn’t really interesting and for me the XR is too bulky. I will wait and see what the 2019 iPhones will offer...

Most of the GSMArena visitor are from India and US where P30 is not available.
But yeah GSMArena have to add P30 as reference, it is also as powerful as s10e and XR.

iPhone XR has a 720p display and still has a below-average battery with bad charging out of the box. No...just...no.
I agree with the others. Should have compared this to the P30.
how come Apple XR scored better in GFX 3.1 Manhattan ofscreen 1080p (97 ) than on screen 720p (60 )??? Cheat ??
Between the two, I will choose the S10e. I bought a brand new iPhone 5s last November, and after 2 months of use, I sold it. I will never use an iPhone again for four reasons. First, I can't easily transfer my photos from my laptop and camera to my iPhone through a cable. There maybe some other ways to transfer but I don't know how. Second, there is no "Back" button. I always had to reach the uppermost right side of the screen to reach the "Arrow" to go back. Third, there are some useful local apps in the Play Store that are not available in the App Store. These apps are very important to me because, through them, I can monitor my loans and internet services. Fourth and last reason, old model iPhones are still expensive and not the best value for money. Imagine, as of today in my country, their iPhone 6s Plus is more expensive than the P20 (not Pro) or Honor 10, how about that!
I am typing this on the s10e sd855 and it's a rocket.
Best phone for a long time.
Welcome back Samsung.
Sadly many reviewers are not discussing the fluidity and speed of one UI. It's a game changer.
Shanti Dope, 21 Apr 2019I'd choose the S10e, but you're definitely nuts to degrade the XR to Nokia 3 level.
I'd even ... moreThe iPhone XR isn't a bad phone by any means. It's just rather overpriced for what it offers. The S10e or the P30 make far more sense from a value standpoint.
The XR makes a good "budget" option for those on the Apple ecosystem though.
Why didn't you include P30 in this comparison? It costs the same as those two & arguably offers even more bang for your buck.
I'd choose the S10e, but you're definitely nuts to degrade the XR to Nokia 3 level.
I'd even pick this iPhone over the overly priced A80.
For me it's really hard to declare the winner here, I mean if you're looking for a great camera, class-leading performance, long term software support and fond of Apple's Ecosystem then iPhone XR is definitely a better choice. S10e is for those who want the best display available on any smartphones in the same price range, a headphone jack, the super wide angle lens and the fast charging.
But honestly you should just go for XR if you're an iPhone/iPad/Mac user and S10e if you're a long term Android user. That's all I can say for this comparison.
