As the largest -- and priciest -- phone in Samsung’s S10 lineup, the S10 Plus promises the best experience around. But the differences between the S10 Plus are more subtle than the marketing lets on.
- Screen resolution
- Water and dust resistance
- Rear cameras
The only major difference lies in the front camera. Where the other two models use a 10MP front-facing lens, the S10 Plus also includes an 8MP depth-sensing camera to provide bokeh effects and other tweaks when taking selfies.
The screen size is also slightly bigger at 6.4 inches.
There are, however, a few more options available than on the other models.
Storage options include 128GB, 512GB, and 1TB.
If you opt for the 1TB model, you can also choose from two exclusive rear shells -- ceramic black or ceramic white. However, some reviewers felt the ceramic colors felt cheap.
The 1TB model also includes a whopping 12GB of RAM as opposed to the 8GB of the other models. This should help heavy multi-taskers and add some future proofing to the phone. But some reviewers question if a phone needs that much RAM today.
Lastly, there’s a 4,110mAh battery. For most reviewers, this was the best reason to consider the phone over the smaller S10. No one had issues hitting a full day on a single charge, with many lasting into the second day with little worry.
If you’re looking for a phone that won’t leave you worried about charging, the S10 Plus is definitely worth considering.
CNet summed up opinions well, saying, “Galaxy S10 Plus is a killer phone for 2019, although serious photographers will find its nighttime camera shots lacking.”
Otherwise, you’ll find same stellar performance, excellent screen, and sluggish fingerprint scanner found in the S10. For more on what to expect, be sure to check our S10 Review Summary for more information.
