Samsung has crafted some truly dazzling smartphones over the years, and the latest flagship to join the ranks is the super-sized Galaxy S10 Plus. Indeed, in terms of cutting-edge tech, Samsung has truly pushed the boundaries with this one, but is it worth your money?
Unsurprisingly, the S10 Plus is a lot like the S10 to look at, only bigger. In fact, its screen-size is clocks in at an impressive 6.4 inches, with tiny bezels and edge-to-edge, Dynamic AMOLED display.
Other alterations include an extra front-facing pinhole camera (Infinity- O display), though it has the same number of cameras at the back. An embedded finger-print scanner also sits under the home screen in place of the home screen button.
Specs and features
Samsung phones are known to pack some serious power, especially its flagships, and the S10 Plus is no exception.
Here is a few of our favourite specs and features:
- Camera - the S10 Plus boasts two front-facing cameras implanted at the top of the screen - one more than the standard S10. At the back, you’ll find three powerful, rear-mounted camera - two 12 megapixels and one 16 megapixel with an ultra-wide lens.
- Storage - impressively, the phone provides up to 12GB of RAM and up to an eye-watering 1TB of internal storage. To that end, you should have enough room for hundreds of hours of video.
- Fingerprint scanner - one of the phones most cutting-edge features is its in-display ultrasonic finger-print sensor that’s replaced Samsung’s traditional home screen button. For some this may be a security risk, but according to Qualcomm, the sensor is powerful enough to get a reading from deep within the pores of the skin.
- Battery - on the battery-front, the S10 Plus has a powerful 4,100mAh battery, which should, in theory, last the whole day. Indeed, this gives the phone a 40% upturn in power efficiency compared to the S9. Moreover, the device also supports wireless charging.
The S10 Plus will start from £899, you can get the 512GB version for £,1099 and the 1TB version with 5G costs up to a whopping £1,399.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus will be available to buy from March 8.
On the face of it, the S10 Plus has all the ingredients to be Samsung’s most powerful smartphone to date.
Indeed, with, up to 1TB of internal storage and an embedded finger-print sensor, as well significantly improved battery-life, we predict this could be the handset other mobile manufacturers will look to beat over the next year.
In short, we’re impressed, and if you're willing to fork out the premium price-tag, we think you will be too. That said, there are ways you can get one for a cheaper price...
