You can order your new Samsung phone here, through Comviq’s webpage.
The Galaxy S10e is one of the three new premium smartphones launched by Samsung earlier in March 2019. The 'e' in S10e stands for 'essential', which means it packs almost everything the S10 and S10 Plus have, but at a lower price.
The phone is constructed from Gorila Glass with a rounded aluminum frame with glass on the front and back of the device which makes it more grippy.
In a world where smartphones displays keep getting bigger and bigger it’s nice to see a phone as compact as the Galaxy S10e that with his small footprint feels pretty comfy in one hand. Compared to the more expensive models there aren’t any downgrades as far as waterproofing, you still get 4 ip68 rated water and dust resistance. Looking closely at the front you may notice something out of the ordinary. Instead of the curved display typical of Samsung’s flagship phones, the S10e has a flat front panel instead. It still brings a hole punch cutout for the selfie cam and it’s something that users will have to get used to but there are plenty of creative wallpapers out there that can mask it.
The screen itself is a 5.8’’ Dynamic AMOLED with a 19x9 aspect ratio and a 1080p resolution.
It also has a stereo speaker set up with the earpiece acting as the second speaker, so the loudness is excellent, and the sound is quite clear. One of the differences the S10e has from its siblings is the lack of an under-display fingerprint reader. Here it’s a side mounted one that doubles as a power button. You also get the same cutting-edge chipset either an Exynos 9820 or Snapdragon 855 depending on your region.
As a smaller phone, it makes sense that the S10e has a smaller battery at 3100 mAh, but it still performs well, scoring an endurance rating of 83 hours. The cameras are almost identical as to the ones on the Galaxy S10 minus the telephoto cam. The dual set up consist of a 12-megapixel main camera with a variable aperture and face detection auto focus and a 16 megapixels ultra-wide cam with a fixed focus. In good light, the shoots with the main camera are great, with extraordinary detail, lively colors and almost no noise. Images from the ultra-wide-angle camera look pretty nice with pleasing colors and very good dynamic range and the software does a decent job of dealing with barrel distortion.
4K videos can be shot with the rear camera in 30 or 60 FPS and they have HDR 10+ support. The quality is very good regardless of the FPS with excellent details and contrasts and life like colors.
As far as downsides go, there are a few nitpicks here and there like the hole punch cutout is really something you have to get used to and it generally eats into the content that you are watching. The fingerprint reader is a bit inconveniently placed and many users would prefer to see it sitting a bit lower on the phone. And talking about the charging speed, compared to the fast charging competition these days the S10e seems a bit sluggish.
In conclusion, even though the S10e isn’t quite as top of line as the more expensive phones from the same series, it still brings arguably their best features: an awesome dynamic AMOLED screen, excellent cameras, stereo speakers, a cutting-edge chipset and a premium waterproof build.
