The Galaxy S10 line of telephones from Samsung is simply the newest in an more and more nice line of phones. They only maintain getting better. You won’t be into the slightly rounded edges of the telephone, however you possibly can’t argue the fact that the telephone is prime notch. I have had my Galaxy S10+ for a bit of over three months now so I assumed I might share my thoughts about how the telephone has held up. Watch the video, or continue studying under.

I needed to talk to you about my three months… truly, it’s been just a little bit longer than three months. I asked Google, “How long since the S10 released?” And the S10 has been out for 105 days on the time that I am recording this video. So I needed to do my three months plus evaluate or recap of my experiences with the S10+ from Samsung. It’s an absolute implausible telephone. I don’t assume that there is a lot that I might really say spec sensible and issues simply particularly to what is on the telephone, the know-how and all of that stuff, as a result of so many people have talked about that, however I needed to speak about my experiences as a result of I’ve been using, prior to that, the Google Pixel XL, the Pixel 3 XL. I’ve been using that since it got here out.
In fact I’ve had the iPhone 10S Max, 10 SXX Max, no matter it is, for the entire time that it’s been out as properly, and so I’ve had several flagship telephones that I’ve been utilizing, and so why would I exploit one versus the opposite? I do know this may contradict issues a bit of bit as a result of as you’ll be able to see I’ve an Apple watch on, and I am sporting that. I haven’t been capable of kick my behavior of getting the Apple watch on, and my main telephone quantity is on the Apple watch. Nicely, truly it’s on my iPhone and related to the Apple watch as a result of I do like leaving my telephone behind, and though I do have the Samsung watches, I’ve both the Lively, the newer one, and in addition the Samsung Galaxy S watch, whatever it’s, that does have mobile.
But just the Android or even the Samsung expertise on the Smartwatch simply isn’t sufficient for me to have the watch and need to put on the watch on a regular basis. The Apple watch sort of solves that, but hey, we’re getting derailed right here. Let’s speak extra concerning the S10+. In fact this telephone does have the three cameras and I assumed at first I wasn’t really going to care so much about having three cameras. Perhaps it’s sort of getting gimmicky at this level to have so many cameras, but the extremely extensive digital camera on right here is completely unbelievable.
I really like having it, despite the fact that it doesn’t have auto focus, typically you just need that extremely vast angle for a shot that you simply need to get. Perhaps you’re taking a gaggle photograph of some individuals in a decent place, or for example, I used to be with my household driving by way of the Boise National Forest and we stopped off at these scorching springs and there simply would have been no means for me to seize this photograph inside the area that we have been in if I didn’t have that broad angle on there. So, with the ability to use that vast angle, I feel completely is a necessity. I really like having it and and if it didn’t have it, I feel I’d have much less to say about this telephone. So, kudos to Samsung for including that broad angle lens.
So far as the cameras go, the cameras are nice. Typically I do really feel that the photographs are a bit brilliant or just a little scorching. For instance, if I’m taking a photograph of, for example, what you see behind me which is only a mountainous vary, and in this video it’s somewhat blown out just because I don’t have all of my lighting, I’m not in a studio. I needed you to be able to see me considerably and in addition see what’s behind me, but the Samsung telephone type of does a bit of little bit of what you’re seeing on this video. It type of blows out a few of the areas to ensure that the darkish areas are uncovered enough to see what they’re as properly.
For me, I type of want a bit of bit of contrastiness. I would like to have the ability to choose, and even once I tap within the vibrant space to deliver that down, I nonetheless have to go into like a guide digital camera mode to truly get the digital camera to show the shot the best way that I would like it to be.
Now the telephone itself is super-snappy and three months later utilizing this telephone it is just as snappy because the day that I first began utilizing it. That’s the factor that has been a standout for me with this telephone, is simply getting around the telephone and navigating it, opening and closing apps, shifting by means of the UI of the telephone is super fast and I don’t know what they did, if they only sped up the animations, they’re utilizing perhaps some of this additional RAM to preload totally different features of the telephone or belongings so that things just load quicker. I don’t know what they’re doing, but they undoubtedly are doing something right because getting around this telephone is great.
Now, like I stated before, I have had the Pixel 3 XL because it got here out and typically it gets a bit of jumpy and hangs on some duties, and this telephone has not finished that when at all. That is the 512 Ceramic Black telephone, so it’s a little bit costlier. I feel it does have a bit bit more RAM than perhaps the extra entry degree, but from what I’ve heard the experiences that everyone have had together with his telephone is that it’s super snappy, whether or not you might have the decrease amount of RAM or the higher quantity of RAM.
In fact, once you get the upper amount of storage like 512 to at least one terabyte of storage, you really need more RAM to utilize that storage. A lot of people don’t know however truly having extra storage in your gadget makes use of extra RAM simply to maintain all of that going, in order that they put a lot more RAM storage or memory on the telephone to compensate for all of that additional storage. So, on this telephone, I really feel like I’m in all probability getting one of the best of each worlds because I’ve received a large amount of storage. Although there’s expandable storage and I might increase the storage with a 512 gigabyte micro SD card, I don’t need to try this as a result of I’ve acquired 512 gigabytes of onboard storage.
And even the base mannequin of this telephone still comes with a whole lot of storage, rather more than most people need, and yes, regardless that they still do give us that slot for the micro SD card, the storage is far slower, the access of that storage is method slower, even in the event you get a quick micro SD card, it’s nonetheless rather a lot slower than the storage that’s on the actual gadget. I discovered that when I am saving issues out to that storage, the external storage on the telephone, regardless that I don’t have to as a result of I’ve the 512 gigs, by habit I put a micro SD card in there and issues simply appear to be a bit of bit slower. For instance, if I play back a video, a 4K video that I shot with the telephone, on the telephone storage, it was the video was saved on the telephone storage, it appears to load and play again quicker than if it’s being accessed from the micro SD card.
So think about that. Depending on what you’re eager to do with the telephone, that’s not a limitation of Samsung at all. It’s a limitation of the read and write speeds of micro SD cards compared to the memory that’s built into your telephone, hardwired right into your telephone. So another standout factor from this telephone is its battery life. It lasts for ever, and it does have a big battery in it. The battery lasts lots longer than my Pixel 4 or my Pixel 3 XL does, and the battery is on par, typically lasts somewhat bit longer than the battery on my iPhone does as properly.
In fact, like most Android telephones, for those who start doing any real heavy lifting with the telephone, then it tends to empty the battery a bit of bit. I’ve been modifying some video using the newly launched Adobe Premiere Rush app on Android. It was obtainable for, I think about a yr now on iPhone, but now it’s out there on Android, and utilizing some of these more graphic, intense processes on your telephone tend to empty the battery slightly bit extra, but that’s undoubtedly not a selected to this telephone as it is just a generalization about battery utilization. But general, the battery has been completely implausible on this.
Now the wireless charging, with the ability to truly put one thing that has Qi charging on the again of this telephone and cost, it was gimmicky at first, it was weird, nevertheless it truly ended up being something that I utilized quite often. I travel a couple of occasions for work and now in fact I’ve been traveling full-time with my household for the final couple of weeks, and we’ve obtained an excellent month-and-a-half left of journey, and with that, I undoubtedly discover myself using that.
I’ll overlook to cost my Earbuds and perhaps even they’re AirPods, I was just going to tug them out however I’ve received too many things in my pockets. Perhaps they’re AirPods. I’ll pop them right on the again of this and charge them up. I may also charge up one other telephone just a little bit. It’s not the fastest charging, and yes, it does work on draining the battery on this, however, hey, it’s a backup. It’s not necessarily something that you simply’re going to wish to use daily, but typically if you do want it, it’s there and you don’t have to use cables, you don’t need to fiddle with making an attempt to plug-in somewhere. You would simply get a fast little prime off on perhaps your Earbuds or whatever you’re utilizing.
Once I obtained this, I obtained the Galaxy Buds with it, and the Galaxy Buds are completely incredible, but typically I overlook to charge them. Set them proper on the back here, cost them up to a usable proportion in a matter of no time and I’m good to go once more.
So I’ve talked concerning the digital camera, I’ve talked about how the telephone has stood up over the check of time of using it. I do have an OtterBox case on it proper now. Once I acquired the telephone, I immediately went and seemed for a case. There was very limited instances, but this OtterBox case has served me fairly properly. So, earlier than I bounce into the display and perhaps a couple of little issues that hassle me concerning the telephone, I needed to talk a bit bit extra about how this has worked as far as how the telephone unlocks. Individuals have given this in-screen fingerprint reader sort of a nasty rap, and I discovered that I’ve truly needed to go in a couple of totally different occasions and delete out my fingerprints and re-add them.
Typically I’ve had some issues there. If I don’t have my fingerprint good at the right spot typically the telephone gained’t unlock, and naturally after five fails it asks me to wait after which I’ve to sort in my password which could be type of annoying. However having the Face ID unlocker, it’s not Face ID, I do know it’s Apple’s factor, however having the Face unlock truly works greatest for me I discovered. I know some individuals say, “Oh, it’s not as secure,” or no matter, however it works good for me. I like with the ability to just carry the telephone up, it unlocks, after which I can swipe.
In fact the fingerprint is an alternate. I can put my thumbprint there, perhaps in a lower mild state of affairs or if I’m sporting sunglasses or something the telephone isn’t used to, I can unlock the telephone that method as a secondary. So I make the most of the fingerprint as a secondary, and use perhaps one of many others just like the Face unlock as my main when unlocking the telephone and it works great each single time.
So, let’s speak concerning the show. Now the show is completely lovely on this telephone. Samsung has had the lead in the shows for a long time. They make everyone else’s shows just about, so there isn’t actually something that I can say about this show aside from my show has a flaw and that is that it came from the manufacturing unit with a blown pixel. I ordered my telephone immediately from Samsung and I didn’t discover the blown pixel as a result of these pixels are so teensy tiny, I didn’t discover it until I’d had the telephone for a few week.
So I obtained in touch with Samsung via their website and there wasn’t an choice for me to change my telephone. All I needed to do was trade it for a model that didn’t have a blown pixel, they usually gave me a tough time. They didn’t respond to my request for a few days, and then once they did they stated that it was out of the return window. I might do an trade but then once I talked to them about it they stated that as a result of it was shipped, I have to cope with the shipper and it in all probability occurred by way of delivery. So Samsung gave me a runaround for positive.
And then they even made the suggestion that I contact my credit card firm and see if I might get insurance coverage from my credit card purchase. I imply, it was actually weird. They have been making an attempt to do all the things potential to not should take duty for the telephone having any type of a flaw.
So, my PSA at the end of this video is, don’t buy your telephone from Samsung as a result of this isn’t my first time having a problem with Samsung. I had a problem the place with one telephone I had a scratch on the show and I despatched it into Samsung for a repair, not expecting anything. I sent it in for restore they usually rotated and despatched the telephone back to me saying that the scratch was brought on by something that I did and that they couldn’t return it. And I wasn’t on the lookout for a return, I used to be in search of a repair.
So I’ve wasted a number of time dealing immediately with Samsung. Samsung is just not really good to cope with at a shopper degree, so I recommend buying your telephone from somewhere you can walk into, perhaps just like the service that you simply’re going to activate it on, or a Greatest Purchase and even on-line by means of Amazon or something like that. I’ve received some hyperlinks down under the place you possibly can decide up this telephone on Amazon. I’ve boughten many phones on Amazon and needed to return them every so often for issues, and the policy there, every thing is great on Amazon just as you’d buying anything.
So, let me know what you assume. I hope that I answered some questions and perhaps let individuals know as as to if or not this telephone is nice over time. A variety of occasions with Android telephones they’re not, they dip out after a while, they grow to be less secure and all that stuff, however this telephone has been completely superior. Sure, perhaps the cameras on a few of the different telephones are a bit of bit better in certain points. Although this telephone has the dual front-facing selfies or no matter, I found that still my Pixel 3 XL takes better selfies than the iPhone I feel does too, perhaps a bit of bit higher.
But in case you’re on the lookout for Android, actually, there isn’t a higher Android telephone out there aside from the Galaxy S10 or S10+. They’re unbelievable phones they usually do stand the check of time. They run nice and the one downfall is, is that typically they’re just a little sluggish to get those new milestone software program updates. But that’s okay. I feel I’d somewhat have long-term stability over the newest and biggest in little tweaks that you simply may get on occasion with Android updates.
Let me know what you assume down within the feedback section under. Have you messed with certainly one of these telephones, do you will have one, have you had comparable experiences to me? And in the event you’ve had a nasty expertise with Samsung instantly as a shopper, make certain to share that down within the feedback section. I simply need to ensure that we’re not getting burned out there by the companies that promote us our stuff that we depend on day-to-day.
Every time I see that little blown pixel, which I can’t through the day but once I’m taking a look at my telephone in the course of the night time, that little blue spec exhibits up no matter what and it drives me up the wall, and I can’t do anything about it. I’m caught with a telephone that value me almost $1,500 and I can’t do something about it.
