Over the years, Samsung has continued to push the limits of smartphone technology including the latest Galaxy S10e, S10, and S10+.

Read on to know more about the best features, design, and pricing of Samsung S10, S10e, S10 5G, and S10+.
All the four phones in the new Galaxy series stand out with their futuristic design. Each of the phones has Samsung’s signature Infinity display with no bezel and curved sides, which gives it an immersive viewing experience. Moreover, the screens of the phones are powered by dynamic AMOLED technology with dynamic tone mapping for a wide range of colors. Additionally, there is a reduction in blue light. This makes it easier to watch videos, read, or play even in the dark without straining the eyes.
The notch from the top of the screen has been done away with; instead, there is a hole punch on the top right side that has a single front camera. In the S10+ and S10 5G, the hole punch is wider as it has dual front cameras.
A major difference in the design of the four models is the size. The Galaxy S10e has a 5.8-inch flat display screen, while the Galaxy S10 is little bigger with a 6.1-inch edge screen. The Galaxy S10+ is one of the heavier models with a curved screen size of 6.4 inches. The biggest of the lot is the S10 5G with a curved display screen size of 6.7 inches.
The phones are available in many colors that include prism white, black, blue, green, and flamingo pink. The Galaxy 10e is available in canary yellow as well. The Galaxy S10 5G model is available only in majestic black while the high-end S10+ models (512GB or 1TB) are available even in ceramic white and black.
One of the best features of the latest phones from the Galaxy S series is the ultrasonic fingerprint sensor that is embedded right into the display. In the previous models, the scanner was at the back, which many users complained about. With the scanner on the front, it ensures the best level of security for the phones. Also, unlocking the phones becomes quite simple and hassle-free. The ultrasonic reader creates a 3D contour of the user’s finger, providing security and accuracy when compared to phones with optical sensors. With a touch, it is possible to not only unlock the phone but also drag and hold to open any app. This feature is, however, not available in the S10e model; it, instead, has the sensor in the power button on the side.
Also, the phones come with Bixby, Samsung’s virtual assistant. Through voice recognition, the Galaxy S10 phones can make calls or even send texts. An additional feature is Bixby Vision, a feature that lets you scan pictures, translates languages and scans QR codes with ease. Moreover, it uses AR to mix up the virtual and physical worlds.

This ensures a longer battery life. The Galaxy S10+ lasts for as long as 12 hours 35 minutes.
