For whom is the Samsung Galaxy S10?
Mark the tenth anniversary of the release of the most popular series of phones based on Android, Galaxy S10 — is the latest flagship smartphone from Samsung. Fully line looks like the following: S10, S10e, and S10 Plus. There are also Samsung Galaxy Foldthat is the first foldable phone in the history of the brand.
This is an important time for Samsung, when competing manufacturers of Android devices making up a well-designed phones with good features at lower prices, so the question arises: did the Koreans enough?
Given the numerous leaks, and we have no doubt that the Galaxy S10 — one of the best Android phones in 2019. It looks great, has a built-in fingerprint sensor, as well as a brand new approach to "eyebrows".
For those who like their phones more, will also be a 6.7-inch version of the S10, called the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G. It will be available soon in the summer, and, likely, the price will be much higher. The smartphone , of course, will support the latest 5G network, so users will be able to get the most out of the device.
Price and release date
You can pre-order Samsung Galaxy S10 right now, and the phone will go on sale March 8. As a gift to advance free Samsung Galaxy Buds – new fully wireless headphones from Samsung that can be charged using Wireless Powershare on new phones.
Цены в России стартуют от 68 990 рублей за S10 (128GB, 8GB ОЗУ). По сравнению с предыдущей моделью линейки, цена выросла примерно на 12 тысяч рублей. Однако можно посмотреть на это с другой стороны: S10 стоит на 6500 рублей меньше, чем iPhone Xs, released by Apple in September.
As expected earlier, Samsung Galaxy S10 is equipped with a display Infinity O. the "O" stands for the new camera, which is located in the upper right corner of the display. This allowed Samsung to further reduce the thickness of the panel at the top. This is the full-screen the Samsung, although we're still not sure he's better than the rest.
In the previous iterations, the display was completely freed from distractions. In the new device Samsung your overview is somewhat complicated neck to the right when viewing full screen content. We are confident that over time users will get used to it, as always, but it's more like the answer to the problem, which initially was not.
6.1-inch (compared with 5.8-inch in S9) display, as one would expect from Samsung, great. This is an OLED panel with a resolution of QHD+, curved edges and support HDR10 + — exactly the same as the high quality Samsung QLED displays. HDR10 + is a competing standard to Dolby Vision (technology HDR supported last iPhone), and provides additional metadata for a supported movie and TV shows, making it theoretically even better than usual HDR10.
Samsung also claims that the display will be able to achieve an impressive 1200 nits brightness (NIT – unit of brightness), which makes it ideal for HDR content, and for use on the street. Samsung officials, however, did not mention whether users can manually increase the brightness to the highest value (the function from LG appeared in the G7) or it is automatically raised in certain situatsiyah.
Ecran спроектирован таким образом, чтобы он был более приятным для глаз, с меньшим количеством испускаемого синего света.
The last feature of the display – embedded fingerprint sensor. To replace traditional physical sensor at the rear, this slightly more futuristic method requires a strong tap on the lower part of the display to unlock the phone.
Yes, the market already has several phones with this technology, and they, in General, are not very good. And OnePlus 6T and Huawei Mate 20 Pro had slow scanners, which often demonstrated problems with the fingerprint identification. I hope that the implementation of Samsung more enjoyable. In addition, the configuration process is quite complicated and takes a few minutes. That's longer than the few seconds it would take to install conventional sensor.
In contrast to the Galaxy S9, S10 no scan of the iris of the eye. Technology was obviously considered too cumbersome to fit into the "eyebrow" Infinity O, and disappeared completely. However, we are not going to mourn this loss — if you are a fan of the unlock face, you will note that the smartphone has the option, which uses the camera.
Leave the screen for a while, the rest of the design feels very familiar. Really attractive glass on the back of the smartphone, and USB-C to the bottom port and even headphone Jack. S10 — it's a thin phone difficult to hold for long time because of the curved edges. Yes, Samsung is a permanent fan of this design, but we believe that the development could be done a little more to make your phone stand out from the competition.
Samsung likes to put their device with the latest and greatest internal components, and, as expected, the S10 is no exception. The device has an 8-nm processor, called Exynos 9820. In the US, the device will probably work to Snapdragon 855.
S10 сопровождается 8GB оперативной памяти, а не 4 ГБ, и вы можете выбрать между 128GB или 512 ГБ встроенной памяти. Смартфон поддерживает MicroSD, а также wireless charging and Qi technology waterproof IP68.
Время автономной работы на Galaxy S9 вряд ли можно было назвать хорошим, поэтому приятно видеть, что в S10 Samsung поместили батарею побольше. Её емкость составляет 3400 mAh, что не самый большой показатель на рынке, поэтому будет интересно посмотреть, насколько хорошо она работает.
Oddly enough, no obvious improvements in the speed of charging was not. Because of the numerous phones that now support USB-C or PD charger with higher wattage, S10 almost immediately obsolete due to adaptive fast charge, which seems to be still based on Quick Charge 2.0.
One is a welcomed update — Wireless Powershare allows you to charge other devices with support for Qi by placing them on the S10. Charging the phone via Powershare is likely to be too slow.
Software and One UI
the Software in the Galaxy S series comes with Android 9 Pie and One UI. Is the reincarnation of the TouchWiz launcher and the Samsung Experience from the Koreans. Though the interface is markedly different from what was before, it still looks in style Samsung.
The focus is on being able to use the phone with one hand, and a large part of what you interact with, was moved to the bottom of the screen. The camera interface is very similar to iOS, and there are elements AI based. The whole system is designed to study user behavior and fast opening of frequently used apps. Will this work actually, is still unknown.
this phone has a system-wide dark mode, which looks great OLED-display.
We will not knowingly consider a camera at the end of our review, because the reality is that it seems to be one area in which Samsung has spent less time in development.
You get the same optically stabilized 12-megapixel main sensor of the previous devices on the rear panel. It can switch between f/1.5 and f/2.4 to let in more light in certain conditions and uses dual pixels for faster focusing. The camera on the Samsung s10 could be called good last year, but now it is not even comparable with the Google Pixel 3.
However, you still get two cameras on the rear of the S10. 12-megapixel television module/sensor f/2.4 to get closer to the object and assistance in portrait mode, and 16-megapixel ultrasonically camera for capturing a greater number of frames. This trio of sensors recalls Huawei Mate 20 Pro, and it should provide a great variety when shooting.
In General, the camera will surely lag behind their competitors in the face of the iPhone XS, Google Pixel 3 and Huawei Mate 20 Pro.
