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.


Well, there you have it. These were the top 13 reasons we could think of. If you have any other, feel free to comment down below. Also, do not forget to subscribe to Android Updated. To do so, just tap the bell icon at the bottom of your device screen.

ZTE Axon S leaked renders showcase a horizontal sliding camera tech

Published

zte axon s wallpapers

The device will feature a USB Type-C charging port and 5G will be supported too.Last year, ZTE launched the ZTE Axon M which boasted of a dual display. A little while ago, the company launched the ZTE Axon 10 Pro flagship.

The company is now all geared up to launch yet another amazing smartphone dubbed the ZTE Axon S.

As per the recently leaked renders (courtesy of Trending Leaks), the ZTE Axon S will sport a triple rear camera setup which will interestingly pop out horizontally.

Looking at the renders, we can clearly see that the device will feature an under-display fingerprint scanner. Furthermore, there would be a dual front camera which will be integrated into the same protruding mechanism.

The device will feature a USB Type-C charging port and 5G will be supported too

The sliding mechanism does not appear to be motorized and will most certainly be manual which makes sense.

As of now, there is no word on the official specifications of the device, but the report further mentions that we will get a 48MP primary sensor and a 19MP secondary sensor. The third one will most possibly be a ToF sensor.

The device will feature a USB Type-C charging port and 5G will be supported too.

Though the specifications of the device are not clear as of now, we can expect the ZTE Axon S to be powered with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset which will be coupled with at least 8GB of RAM (given the company’s history).

As of now, this is all we know about the device, but we are sure to receive further intel on the same in the coming days.

A little while ago, we got a bunch of wallpapers which blended in perfectly with the under-display camera layout of the recently launched Galaxy S10 lineup of smartphones.

You can have a look at them by following our existing coverage of the same.

Now, Samsung has decided to make things official as the company has launched official cut-out wallpapers for the Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10E, and Galaxy S10+.

They, however, are not going to be free of cost

These cut-out wallpapers are available on the Samsung Theme Store. They, however, are not going to be free of cost.

If you want to download these wallpapers, they cost $0.99 a piece. The sad part is that you cannot even try them before downloading (for obvious reasons).

Still, if you want to try out some of the cut-out wallpapers for free, you can head to this SubReddit and get them all for free.

Update: We now have the download links to the wallpapers. You can get them all from the links below

Even after having almost all the latest tech, there will be a big bunch of people who would hate the design choice as the both the Samsung Galaxy S10 and the Samsung Galaxy S10+ feature an under-display camera which leaves a dark spot at the top right side of the display.

In case you are not a big fan of the holes too, these wallpapers are going to make you a lot happier.
