Last year big brands like Samsung and Apple faced a slight financial set back from the consumers who decided to choose more budget-friendly smartphones over expensive premium smartphones. Samsung Electronics came up with a strategy to win over its Chinese rivals so they can compete in changing the landscape of technology. Samsung decided to offer an inexpensive variant of the premium flagship smartphone Galaxy S10 – named as Galaxy S10E. By far, the cheapest option out of four models of Galaxy S series is Galaxy S10e but is it a smarter upgrade than the Galaxy S10 or a false economy? Let’s find out the main differences between the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10e.
Galaxy S10 has 6.1 inches dynamic AMOLED display with 19:9 aspect ratio, 1440 x 3040 resolution, 1,200 nits brightness which is the highest brightness of any smartphone. It uses Gorilla glass 6 for front and Gorilla glass 5 for the back. Galaxy S10e has 5.8 inches dynamic AMOLED display with 1080 x 2280 resolution and Gorilla Glass 5 for front and back. With Galaxy S10 you get the curved edges, but if you are not a big fan of curved edges, Galaxy S10e with a flat screen would be a good option for you.
Galaxy S10 has a premium design and in-display ultrasonic fingerprint reader. It uses acoustic vibrations to create a 3D model of your fingerprint and it’s much faster and secure than any previous reader. With Galaxy S10e the reader is built into its power button. Galaxy S10e is the smaller and lighter phone thanks to its smaller display but it is also compact than the 5.8-inch display. Both new models also retain the best bits of their predecessor: IP68 water resistance, stereo speakers, USB-C, microSD and the headphone jack survives again. Both phones use microSD slot as a second sim which makes it ideal for the situation where you want to use two numbers. Galaxy S10e has 12MP primary camera and 16MP secondary camera. Galaxy S10 has these along with the 12MP telephoto lens and 2x optical zoom.
