Samsung Galaxy S10e Review: Why Not?

  • Published on Mar 12, 2019
  • Galaxy S10e is a better deal than the S10. And a better deal than the XR. It's a flagship disguised as "premium midrange"

    Had my Green S10e a little under a week, and so far I've been very happy - EXCEPT for one thing. The black plastic surround for the screen has already got really rough - it's like it's made from a really soft plastic, so any little touch marks it. The factory screen protector is in perfect condition, as is the rest of the phone, but that black plastic bit looks terrible already.
    I've never had this problem with any of my Samsungs. My old A8(2018) I use when I'm working on steam trains gets abused, and it hasn't had this problem, and it's also uncased, and pretty much the same size as the S10e. I can't see this S10e being terribly durable, which is a shame.

    The "e" is supposed to stand for "essentials" from what I gather.

    I bought this phone yesterday, so disappointed with the camera, going to try and return it, lose money on the restocking fee and just buy a pixel, if mkbhd uses pixel as his daily driver, that says something.

    What do you do if you are left handed and hold your phone with your left hand. Then your thumb doesn't rest naturally on the fingerprint reader.

    I pre ordered S10+ but now I am thinking I should have ordered this. My only reason is that I need bigger battery since I travel quite a bit for work so having bigger battery that I don't have to charge during day helps but I really like the screen size of this and physical finger print sensor

    The s10 design is CRISPY and so are your videos! been watching for years and also thought of starting my own channel but always procrastinated. But i finally started did did my own review inspired by the legend MKBHD on the new S10, if you have any suggestions / feedback for me it would be much appreciated!

    I ended up picking one up. BestBuy and Samsung's website both are offering $550 credit for the Note 9 so I took that offer up and grabbed the S10e. It's nice to have a capable smaller phone that still has a large display.

  • Peter Lam

    Marques, please check out the "accidental touch protection" on the S10/S10+
    (It doesnt seem to work, as seen on a lot of posts in reddit and samsung community forum)
    It may be the cause why the devices have terrible battery life when people have the habit of putting their phone in their pockets, therefore the in-screen fingerprint sensor is constantly sensing fingerprints, whats worse is when people turn on tap to wake AOD or double tap to wake
    I personally own an S10, and found that the battery lose quicker in my pocket than when im watching youtube
    You've been my hero in busting tech flaws in public and saving my spendings on a lot of products
    Keep it up man!

    This video made me fall in love with the S10e 😍 Just a few questions, I currently have the S8, would it be worth the upgrade? Also, is there a difference between the Snapdragon and the Exynos model? I live in Europe, so I would get the Exynos model.
