The next generation of Galaxy has arrived! Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus | Review
Samsung has finally launched their 2019 flagship smartphones – Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10 + and Galaxy S10e. The Galaxy S10+ is the largest of the three smartphones, and with its impressive camera lineup, including a three-lens rear camera and a dual-lens front camera, it really stands out. Here are our review on the Galaxy S10+.

The real thing about the Galaxy S10+ is its design. The screen size is 6.4 inches, which is very large, which can be a problem for those who like to use a smartphone with one hand.
But despite the large size, the brightness of the smartphone is very low, and the curved edge means it can be held comfortably in the hand. Although its predecessor, the Galaxy S9+ has a thicker top bezel to accommodate the front camera and sensor, the Galaxy S10+ has a “perforated” camera on the screen. I was initially skeptical about punching and thought that there might be obstacles when watching full-screen video. Fortunately, it is not distracting; I definitely prefer it – even though I am really waiting to see who can get the sensor and camera in the screen!
If you prefer to post photos to Instagram, please add Samsung S10+ to your wish list now. The smartphone is equipped with a three-lens rear camera, including a zoom lens, wide-angle lens and super wide-angle lens – perfect for trying to squeeze people into photos!
At the same time, the front of the smartphone is equipped with a two-lens camera that finally lets you take a selfie in portrait mode – again, this is what S9 + lacks.
The camera also has a range of new features that should appeal to Instagram fans. The portrait mode now has a variety of variations that allow you to blur the background based on color and different funky effects. Scene detection has also been enhanced to ensure your photos are optimized for themes.
Although I am not a fan of colorful phones, I appreciate Samsung’s launch of the Galaxy S10 + so many different shades.
Ceramic white and ceramic black options are my favorites, and the ceramic surface gives the phone an elegant look.
The color of the “prism” is a bit flashy for me, but for those who want to show off their phones without a case, this might be an interesting option.
One of the most exciting new features of Samsung S10+ is the Ultrasound Screen Fingerprint Scanner. The scanner lets you unlock your smartphone with just a touch of the screen, and I’m impressed with its quick read. I would rather use a fingerprint scanner instead of the back on the front of the smartphone, and by placing it under the screen, it no longer requires a thick bottom bezel.
I was a little sad when I saw the iris scan option removed, although I understand why Samsung remove it out so that the sensor can be installed in the puncher. Samsung’s Wireless PowerShare is also an interesting addition to let you wirelessly charge compatible devices with your smartphone. This is especially useful because Samsung is offering users a pair of free new Galaxy Buds and Galaxy S10+.
Samsung Galaxy S10+ is the most expensive between these three smartphones.
Galaxy S10 Plus 128GB: RM 3699
Galaxy S10 Plus 512GB: RM 4599
Overall, I was very impressed with the Samsung Galaxy S10+. I like big smartphones, but if you prefer to use your device with one hand, then the Galaxy S10 might be more suitable for you. It’s quite expensive, it’s worth considering, but I think it’s obviously better than a cheaper product and it’s very good value for money.
