Samsung Galaxy S10e: Cheaper, Smaller, and yet Powerful
While we talk about Android Smartphones, Samsung devices indeed catch the eye. And this year, we have acquainted with Samsung Galaxy S10e; an essential attempt by Samsung flagship. Being a direct competition to the iPhone XR, it is packed with the lot that a Galaxy S10 user is experiencing, but at a lower price and smaller body.
The device has embraced the rounded metal sides and contains Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on both the front and the back. Unlike the sibling, i.e. Samsung Galaxy S10 or S10 Plus, it is easier to hold for being 142.2 mm taller and 69.9 mm wide. There is a combination of a fingerprint sensor and a power button. Yes, the Galaxy S10e brings a side-mounted fingerprint sensor i.e. the scanner is built in the Power button. The device runs on the Samsung One UI version of Android 9 Pie.
Speaking of the display, the Samsung Galaxy S10e has a 5.8-inch dynamic AMOLED display with a 2,280 x 1,080 (435ppi) resolution setting. The curvy back edges are perfectly crafted to keep the device fit in the hand as well and minimal bezels are apparent on the front.
You will get the Bixby button on the left side, pressing which you will be directed to the Bixby home. Also, Samsung with this flagship model, allows you to remap the Bixby button to activate the apps that you wish. You may wish to check out how to set up Bixby as per your preference.
The device is available in six colors. One can opt for Prism Black, Prism White, Flamingo Pink, Canary Yellow, Prism Green and Prism Blue.
Galaxy S10e possesses a 3100mAh non-removable battery, 8nm octa-core Exynos 9820/7nm octa-core Snapdragon 855. Storage comprises 128GB and 256GB and is expandable up to 512 GB. It is IP68 water and dust resistant and is 150g in weight i.e. 7g lighter than the Samsung Galaxy S10. Wireless charging and wireless powershare are possible.
Price of Samsung S10e:
Samsung Galaxy S10e will cost you nearly $749.99 for the 128GB variant. Here, you will get 6GB of RAM. On the other hand, if you want to opt for 8GB of RAM and 256GB of space, you will need to spend $100 more than the previous price.
Since the Samsung S10e is lower in price, having some compromise on the features is natural. And the area where it lacks is its camera. Not resembling the pricier S10 line, it comes with two rear cameras – a 12MP wide-angle sensor and a 16MP ultra-wide sensor. The front camera has a 10MP sensor offering dual-pixel auto-focus.
