What experts are saying

The Galaxy S10 is still a terrific phone, even after it's been outclassed by the next generation. For some, it'll be a smarter buy now than it was in 2019.

Pros
  • Sharp screen
  • Long battery life
  • Noteworthy camera quality
  • Wirelessly charges other devices
Cons
  • In-screen fingerprint reader is hit or miss
  • Lacks the distinction of S10 Plus and S10E

The Samsung Galaxy S10 remains a solid flagship with few flaws, even after it's overshadowed by the new Galaxy S20 series.

Pros
  • High screen-to-body ratio
  • In-screen fingerprint sensor
  • Wireless PowerShare perk
Cons
  • Stunning price hike
  • S10e and S10 Plus are better
  • Great camera, but not the best

The 6.1-inch Galaxy S10 may be the middle child of the S10 lineup, but don't sleep on this powerful smartphone or its beautiful display.

Pros
  • Gorgeous Infinity-O display
  • Solid battery life with Wireless PowerShare
  • Blazing-fast performance
  • Triple-lens camera system captures every angle
Cons
  • Facial recognition needs work
  • Front-facing camera not quite as good as on S10+

Samsung's big 2019 flagship Android phones deliver in more ways than you'd think.

The midsize Samsung Galaxy S10 has all the attractive features of the S10+ for less money, but we still think the smaller S10e is a better buy.

Pros
  • Great screen.
  • Fastest possible processor and LTE.
  • Triple cameras with 2x and wide-angle.
  • Headphone jack and microSD card slot.
Cons
  • Expensive.
  • In-display fingerprint sensor has no physical guide.

A compact and powerful phone that offers a great consistent experience. The battery life isn't great and the camera isn't best in class when it comes to mode challenging situations. The software remains some of the most mature and comprehensive making it a pleasure to use, but there are equally-powerful rivals available for less money.Read full verdict

Pros
  • Great build quality
  • One UI software features
  • Camera consistency and HDR performance
Cons
  • Battery life isn't the best
  • Night shooting doesn't keep up with rivals

Without question, these are the perfect complement to the Samsung Galaxy S10 lineup. The earbuds' remarkable battery life separates it from the crowd of true wireless contenders, while its easy-to-operate touch controls make quick commands a breeze. The Galaxy Buds often go on sale, so if the price is a little to hefty for you, try checking back in a few weeks.

Pros
  • Bluetooth 5.0
  • AAC and scalable Samsung codec support
  • PowerShare and wireless charging
  • Ambient Sound mode and touch controls
  • Compact build
Cons
  • No aptX support
  • Only IPX2 water-resistance

Pros
  • Long-lasting battery life
  • Superb camera
  • Samsung’s best-looking phone to date
Cons
  • Lack of HDR 10+ content
  • Much cheaper alternatives available

The Galaxy S10 is the middle child in this year’s Galaxy S10 range, between the Galaxy S10e, and the Galaxy S10 Plus. There’s no striking reason to buy it -- the Galaxy S10 Plus offers a bigger screen, better selfies, and better gaming performance -- but it’s still an excellent phone if you don’t want a phone that large. Here’s our review.

Pros
  • Speedy performance
  • Day-long battery life
  • Versatile triple cameras
  • Excellent HDR10+ screen
  • Clean OneUI software
Cons
  • Slim bezels mean accidentally interacting with the screen
  • Too close in price to the better S10 Plus
  • Expensive

Pros
  • Gorgeous Infinity-O display
  • Solid battery life with Wireless PowerShare
  • Blazing-fast performance
  • Triple-lens camera system captures every angle
Cons
  • Facial recognition needs work
  • Front-facing camera not quite as good as on S10+

The Galaxy S10 5G is one of the best phones around but at the moment 5G just isn't worth the asking price
