Tired of the BS, 18 Aug 2019I am sorry, but it has been my experience that honest negative reviews are usually not allowed... moreI found this comment difficult to read. I tried to understand as much as I could.
I used my S10e to connect with my TV and soundbar via bluetooth...
I even use SmartThings app to control my Samsung oven... because even Samsung ovens now have WiFi connectivity.
Bottom line is that so far this phone has done everything it was supposed to do, and it did it flawlessly. If your bluetooth doesn't work properly then you should probably claim your warranty. And you are expressing great turmoil because of it here, and I cannot see why exactly except maybe because of bluetooth...
I am sorry, but it has been my experience that honest negative reviews are usually not allowed by review sites. Still going to give it a shot.
I hate my new Galaxy s10e. It is not nearly as good a phone as my now obsolete phone was (old phone doesn't work with new and supposedly improved networks - Sprint changed everything so my old phone would not work anymore - so I got a different carrier - tired of the BS from Sprint). I have spent hours on the new Galaxy s10e phone but only mainly with the new carrier phone company technical support and still am going to have to take it back and get a different one. I will not mention the new carriers name since they have yet to do anything wrong and have not lied to me like Sprint and AT&T have.
First of all, the Samsung Galaxy s10e is more difficult to use than my old phone. Why everyone thinks new and more difficult is "improved" is beyond me. I just want a phone to work right. This one will not pare up in my car or recognize any of my other blue tooth devices. It is difficult (maybe impossible) to set custom ring tones for each caller (was an easy way to block out time wasted answering most spam robo calls on my old phone). What is so great about this Galaxy s10e phone? I have yet to figure it out? Unfortunately, now the modern trend is to obsolete everything so you have to buy a new one every year or so. This phone is not any better for what I use a phone for (to call, get messages, and even text once in a while ). Just the basics and I would like to use hands free in my late model car so I can be more safe driving??? Is that really too much to ask? REALLY? All these stupid apps and other Google controlled stuff loaded on the phone my be cool to little kids, but in the end why have a phone if it never works right and the never ending solution from people is "you need a new phone?"
I hate the fact that the phone is linked to Google and almost impossible not to be under the Google "control". Don't people realize they are being controlled and their internet searches etc. are decided by google and not by you? I don't need to play video games on my phone or be part of the never ending modern trend of everyone trying to sell me something else (does anyone do anything any more besides trying to up sell)? I am old school and would rather spend my money on something else besides paying more for the same features and services I use to have. How can people be this dumb? Depresses me that the United States is being dumbed down by overseas technology.
From my point of view, the Galaxy s10e - What a waste of time and money.
New phone, more money, losing previous features I actually used, harder to use in general.
Anonymous, 18 Aug 2019P30 or P30 Pro. Camera is the best one ever. It's a flagship. Very very fast facial recognitio... moreHuawei P30/Pro only has optical zoom. Without it, S10E wins in all camera performance and it takes more natural colors. And the P30/Pro reviews never mentioned how ridiculously looooong it takes low light picture. Only one reviewer mentioned this and compared it vs Google Pixel 3 and S10. And by the way there already exists working Google Pixel 3 camera ported to S10 series both for SD and Exynos.
Max, 17 Aug 2019S10e or P30? And why?S10e because:
Way better video quality
Better selfie camera
DeX (which I just tried out and it works like charm with PC)
Small form factor (you can actually use it with only one hand)
Awesome audio quality, especially with AKG headphones and Dolby Atmos turned on
Anonymous, 18 Aug 2019P30 or P30 Pro. Camera is the best one ever. It's a flagship. Very very fast facial recognitio... moreIt has zoom option in camera and that's about it.
S10e is a flagship too.
S10e will hold a battery for 4 days if you aren't using it aswell.
P30 has no IP68 or wirelless power share, and P30 Pro costs twice as much as S10e and S10e still has better video quality, a headphone jack and DeX support.
And S10e's side mounted fingerprint scanner is still faster and more reliable than any of those under the display. As for Face ID - unfortunatley for Huawei, but Apple remains the king on that area... Huawei isn't even close.
"Best phone in the world" - what are you talking about, are you OK? LOL
Max, 17 Aug 2019S10e or P30? And why?P30 or P30 Pro. Camera is the best one ever. It's a flagship. Very very fast facial recognition and under-screen fingerprint scanner. Little notch. Gorgeous display. Big battery (lasts even 4 days without charging and using it). Best phone in the world.
MladenJ, 17 Aug 2019Can any of you who have the S10e test the hotspot on it, so connect it to another cell phone, ... moreWorks like charm for me.
But I'm in Zagreb. Zagreb is known for good signal.
Also it depends if you're on A1 or HT or at some network like Tele2.
In Zagreb - they all have really fast 4G.
But in other areas - it's best bet to ask your locals about network providers, so you know which one has best coverage in your area.
Can any of you who have the S10e test the hotspot on it, so connect it to another cell phone, laptop or tablet. This interests me because the S10e would serve as a hotspot for other devices. Please. some update so far has improved battery life because obviously the S10e is a problem between software and hardware.
MladenJ, 16 Aug 2019Hello, I ask those who have S10e to answer me what the S10e is with 4G reception quality and W... moreHello,
I can confirm that 4G reception quality is very good (compared to my previous phone Galaxy A5 2016).
Both Wi-Fi reception and hotspot strength are good as well. I tried placing the S10e in one corner of my house and then tried to connect the old phone that was in the other corner (distance was approximately 20 meters with 3 walls between devices) and I had better signal than from my Wi-Fi router that was half the distance than the S10e.
But the biggest differences between those phones are Bluetooth strength (5.0 has insane range compared to 4.2) and Location (Galileo and that Chinese GPS clone which name I don't remember make a difference).
I hope that answers your question.
MladenJ, 14 Aug 2019Hello,
I ask those who have S10e to answer me honestly what the S10e is with 4G reception qu... moreI have the S10e, it has decent connectivity, but mine has this issue where it struggles to scan for weak wifi signals (1 to 2 bars) and connect. Once connected it's pretty good though.
some context: my wifi is pretty crappy, my old phone also had trouble connecting to it but it wasnt as bad as this s10e. Or maybe I'm just expecting too much from this phone cuz it's my first flagship.
Tl;dr : It works well if the wifi signal is strong.
Aspok, 14 Aug 2019The Best Color for S10e is Prism White. I'm using Prism White variant. Definitely blue
MladenJ, 16 Aug 2019Hello, I ask those who have S10e to answer me what the S10e is with 4G reception quality and W... moreI use my hotspot all the time with my laptop and tv. I have unlimited data but towards the middle of the month it starts to lag. I originally wanted the note 10 but got the s10e instead. Still want the note but this phone is nice so far. I have had it for 3 months and no issues.
Aspok, 15 Aug 2019You've forgot to mention something on S10e which is you can connect to a 1080p monitor using S... moreAhh yes.
I didn't mention it since I didn't use that feature so far. But I definiley plan on trying it out!
Anonymous, 13 Aug 2019What is the best colour for s10eFor me Prism Black
How is the s10e (exynos version) handles heavy gaming, or even day to day life using cause i've heard user before complaining about overheating issues. Has that been solved by Samsung? Ty
