For the past couple of years, Samsung has typically had two flagship S series smartphones at launch — a regular and a Plus version. This year, the company introduced a third variant called the Galaxy S10e. Going by the US pricing, the Galaxy S10e seems to be aimed directly at the iPhone XR (Review). In India, thanks to Samsung's local manufacturing, we're able to get it closer to the dollar value while the iPhone XR comes in at a steep premium.

  • thank you
    Darshan agrawal (Jun 13, 2019) on Amazon
    The phone got ridiculously hot initially. The battery was also draining like crazy at that time. I then realised that I had forgotten to remove the plastic around the sides of the phone. Things got a lot better after I removed it. But I am still seeing a considerable battery drain.

  • Over all best Android phone
    Shubham chopra (Jun 13, 2019) on Amazon
    1. The phone got ridiculously hot initially. The battery was also draining like crazy at that time. I then realised that I had forgotten to remove the plastic around the sides of the phone. Things got a lot better after I removed it. But I am still seeing a considerable battery drain.2. The front camera goes into overdrive in order to make you beautiful. While there may be a few people who like it, I for one think that it completely spoils a photo. I hope Samsung improves this in future software updates.That's it! Everything else about this phone is top notch! I love the display, back cameras (both lenses), and overall ergonomics of this device. It's probably half an inch taller than iPhone 6,but it's oh so better looking! Even the UI has improved drastically since my S7 edge days.I'll post an update regarding the batter life after a week. Devices do usually tend to drain battery initially when the owner is over enthusiastic and the phone is still learning the usage patterns.Update 1 (after using for two weeks):Battery life: The battery drain issue has almost completely gone away. I'm consistently getting over 5 hours of screen on time throughout the day. A few settings had to be tweaked, but I reckon it was more about the phone learning my habits and adapting accordingly.Cameras: I got a software update that significantly improved the quality of front camera. With the rear cameras already brilliant, I am now satisfied with the overall camera performance. Be informed that the picture quality under low light settings is still not as terrific as that from the Pixel 3. The photos are very very good, but not as good s those from Pixel 3.Other observations: OneUI is absolutely amazing. I've used multiple OnePlus devices, S7 Edge, and Google phones in the past, but this is the most practical implementation of android out there. Also, it give you to option to experiment with tonnes of customizations.This should be your next phone.

  • All - rounder Phone
    Avnish Chandra Mishra (Jun 13, 2019) on Amazon
    It is a nice phone, but the phone gets warm quickly. Camera is awesome. Performance is powerful. If you tolerate heating then the phone is superb.
