The (real) Top 13 reasons to buy the Samsung Galaxy S10 (Plus)

Published

on

So, the wait is finally over. Samsung has finally taken the wraps off its latest flagship lineup. The Samsung Galaxy S10 devices are no more confined to leaks and rumors.

Samsung Galaxy S10 lineup:

  • Samsung Galaxy S10
  • Samsung Galaxy S10e
  • Samsung Galaxy S10+
  • Samsung Galaxy S10 5G

This leads us to the usual question as to whether or not you should switch to a Galaxy S10 smartphone. For the sake of this post, we will try to point out the best things found in the Galaxy S10+. So, the S10+ becomes our benchmark over here.

In case you want to know everything about the rest of the devices unveiled during the Unpacked event (including the Samsung Galaxy Fold), you can head to our existing coverage of the same.

Coming back to business, if you want to get your hands on the Galaxy S10+ (which is not that budget-friendly by any means) and you are having any doubts whatsoever, the following are the top 15 reasons for buying this device:

Why should I buy the Samsung Galaxy S10? Here’s why


1. Amazing display

The Samsung Galaxy S10+ sports a beautiful 6.4-inch display with 87.5% screen-to-body ratio. The front camera integrates seamlessly within the display which makes the device an absolute pleasure to look at.

2. Amazing cameras

Last year’s Samsung Galaxy S9 lineup and Samsung Galaxy Note 9 featured one of the best cameras in the market. The Galaxy S10 lineup has taken things to an altogether different dimension. The 5G variant of the Galaxy S10 boasts of a quad camera setup (12 MP, f/1.5-2.4 wide angle + 2 MP, f/2.4, 52mm telephoto + 16 MP, f/2.2, 12mm ultrawide + TOF camera) which is going to give the competitors nightmares for days.

3. More screen estate

Samsung never liked the concept of notches in its flagship smartphones and has radically changed the design of the current lineup. The bezels are almost gone, there is no pop-up camera gimmick being played, and the notch is, well, not invited. Interestingly, the stock wallpapers that come bundled with the device have intentionally been given a dark shade near the camera hole to provide for an even better UX.

4. Ultra-sonic fingerprint scanner

Under-display fingerprint scanners are not a new concept in the world of Android, but Samsung has come up with an all-new tech with the Galaxy S10 lineup. The in-display fingerprint scanner found of the devices is all the way more accurate and is way safer than its traditional counterparts. Though the response time is not drastically different, it is still a good thing to have a future-ready tech coming up in a device of such magnitude.

5. RAMming it up

Now, this might be a point worth debating on. Do we actually need a whopping 12GB of RAM in Android ecosystem or not has been a topic many YouTubers have been talking about for long. We leave the decision to you. That being said, having such a huge amount of RAM won’t hurt anyone, if nothing else.

6. Flagship processors

Obvious? The Samsung Galaxy S10 lineup is powered with the best SoC in the world to date (8nm Exynos 9820 Octa-core chipset/ 7nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset) which when coupled with 12GB of RAM will be able to take on anything thrown at it.

7. Amazing front camera

The in-display dual front camera setup is more than just a gimmick. Samsung has ensured that the Galaxy S10+ gives the users the best selfie experience possible with the front camera setup (10 MP, f/1.9 aperture with dual pixel PDAF + 8 MP, f/2.2, depth sensor).

8. More internal storage (with expansion)

We get up to 1TB of internal storage. To put things under perspective, if you add in an external SD card to the picture, you are getting a device with 1.5TB of storage. That’s a lot.

9. Remappable Bixby button

Bixby has always been one of the most controversial decisions by Samsung and Samsung knows that. If you do not want to get annoyed with those accidental Bixby button presses, you can remap the button as per your liking in the Galaxy S10 lineup. Good job Samsung.

10. One UI (probably the best Samsung skin till date)

We have talked about the One UI in the past and we have become die-hard fans of it. One UI is hands down, the best skin the company has ever been able to pull off.

xiaomi upcoming foldable smartphone renders

We witnessed an amazing revolution in the realm of Android when the Samsung Galaxy Fold got launched. It is rather unfortunate to see the device getting pulled back due to the plethora of issues surrounding the broken screen issues that took the world of internet by storm.

As it turns out, no matter what the future holds for the Galaxy Fold, Xiaomi is all geared up to launch a foldable smartphone of its own pretty soon.

As a matter of fact, the company posted a video of the same on the Chinese microblogging website Weibo today which shows the device in all its glory.

In the video, we see the device folding at two different places which increases the danger of the ever-dreaded crease two times.

Nevertheless, the device looks absolutely amazing, so be sure to check out the video.


As of now, only a little is known about the device, but we are sure to receive further intel on the same in the coming days.
