    The choice between the S10e and the much larger S20 was easy as I was striving for a handy size of the phone.
    Have now had it since June and tried it in different shells.

    It works better than expected with a very conveniently placed fingerprint reader.
    A Samsung Bixby button is available, this is a function I do not use so it is addressed to start the WiFi remote control instead.
    Very good 3.5 socket for wired audio transmission.
    The battery lasts 1-3 days depending on the degree of use it is subjected to.

    I have removed Samsung's factory apps via ADB. This is a process that takes the technology-oriented user about 1 hour. Easy to google.

    There is no handset that is currently challenging the S10e in the price range.

    Updated July 2020: Battery life is simply poor. Must be constantly charged to avoid running out of power, especially during use. But during one night it also loses a lot of power by just lying on the table.

    Aside from the lousy battery, it's a good phone. It is not huge like most flagships, and therefore fits much better in your pocket. I like the fingerprint reader on the page. At first I thought it was set too far up, but I have gotten used to it and think it works well.

    A good phone that is pulled down heavily due to. low battery.

    Some common with other reviews / comments here on PriceSpy:

    Positive (+)
    - Good size. (Do not like the gigantus norm nowadays even though I have big hands)
    Awesome screen with the choice to change the resolution.
    - The sound.
    - Good camera.


    Negative (-)
    - Battery life is quite bad, need to charge more than usual.
    - 3.5mm door is loose (Resulting in noise and disturbances when walking).
    - Minor scratches on the screen (This has not been a problem with my previous phones and I use covers).
    - The fingerprint reader is awkward and poorly placed.
    - Bixby is horrible and that there is a dedicated button for this does not make things better ..
    - Missing notification LED. (Personally, I do not like AOD).

    Everyone complains that exynosis is worse than snapdragon. In practice, there is no difference.
    I am very pleased with both the form factor and the performance. There is not much you choose over the other variants of s10.

    I ball the battery between 40% -80% for it to last for a few years, and so far I manage a full day on it.

    To give context, I use the phone actively for maybe 3 hours in total per charge.

    According to the app "AccuBattery" - which monitors and logs the battery usage - the mobile pulls on average: 12.7% per hour with the screen on (45% brightness). I mainly use apps like: browser, twitch, instagram and tradera.
    I also use Dark Mode, which draws less power.

    In sleep mode with the screen turned off, it averages 0.4 to 0.5% per hour.

    With a fast charger, the battery is supplied with ~ 2.4A at 5V, which means about 86% / hour, or 1.4% / min. (NOTE: Charging, not consumption)

    I experience it as quick. Rarely has it become tough and choppy when the frame memory is full. But just shut down some apps and it will hit again as usual. This has happened a handful of times since I bought it in December 2019, and to mention it should be seen as nitpicking just to have something negative to say.

    In terms of service, the USB-C port is soldered to the circuit board, which means that it cannot be changed by itself without much hassle (soldering). Something most people will probably never have to contend with, however, as, according to USB-C standards - at least 10,000 "plug-in" disconnect cycles - should survive the life of the phone under normal circumstances. (-1 star anyway).

    I went from a Samsung S9, and chose between S10e and S20. I have no budgetary restrictions at all, but I still chose S10e over S20 because of the form factor. I have grown tired of the trend towards larger phones that do not go down in your pocket anymore.

    I've only had the phone for a few days, but so far I'm very happy. It is slightly smaller than my old S9 and very flexible to deal with. Slinks down into your pocket lightly like a plaid and is not in the way. The performance is fully adequate for me who is still a relatively advanced user and always fingers on the phone and runs many apps at the same time. I see the screen as very good, despite lower pixel density than my old S9. All in all, a much nicer phone than its predecessor.

    The only thing that is not quite good is the battery life. Had it been better I would have given the phone 10/10.

    A really good phone, of course.

    Have this as a work phone and a regular S10 private. The biggest difference, of course, is the design of the screen otherwise the differences are small for a normal consumer. The fact that the screen does not bend around the edge is not always negative.

    One of this last perfect phone of this time? A phone that has just about everything you could want? Yes, I think it's almost perfect.

    + Flat, bright, crisp screen with plenty of surface and a small hole for the front camera.
    + Stereo speakers (Among the best I've heard).
    + Classic fingerprint reader on the page that always works and reads your finger quickly.
    + Classic 3.5mm headphone jack (Will probably disappear on the S20 with note 10).
    + Wireless fast charging.
    + Samsung Pay.
    + OneUI which is really fine and has lots of good features. It is understood why Samsung renamed its version of Android from "TouchWiz" to today's "OneUI".
    + IP certification.
    + Form factor (Thin, Flat screen, Narrow width, Short length and 150g lightweight).
    +128 GB as an entry model and one of them get new phones where you can expand it further with the help of a MicroSD card.
    + Nice cameras on both the back (Standard & Wide Angle) and on the front. All perform well in poor lighting compared to other handsets.
    + With a little cleaning of unwanted programs & services that are tough on the background, you can succeed in getting the battery lasting a long time (4.5h screen time per 50% I get out. Had BT running for 2h, FB Messenger, Snap, WhatsApp, Email 1h / update, TIDAL with the highest sound quality in 2h through them fine speakers at 70% volume level).

    - Comes with a lot of unwanted (a little Facebook, a little Microsoft etc). This you can, who is able to remove and do everything right, you have honed the phone and can make the battery last longer.
    -Bixby button that can be reprogrammed using the same method as above.

    Purchased for SEK 5990. Incredibly affordable for that price
    + Flat screen
    + Compact with relatively high screen surface (5.8 inches)
    + Two rear cameras, one ultra wide
    + Quick fingerprint reader on edge
    + Quick face recognition to log in
    + Easy shortcuts with gestures
    +6 GB RAM, 128 GB memory

    -Bixby button (which can be adjusted to do otherwise)
    - Some bloatware to remove before getting started for real
    -The battery could have been slightly larger (3100mAh)

    Not much like wow's one directly, but it's a phone with exactly what I need for a good price.

    Owned the cellphone for about 6 months now. Perfect package in smaller fit for less money.

    The S10e has the same main camera and wide-angle camera as the S10 / S10 +, the same forward-facing camera and all work great.
    one mobile, unlike the other siblings, has a flat screen instead of a screen that runs out over the edges. I do not see this as a loss without an improvement.

    The fingerprint reader is in the power button instead of the screen, much faster and more reliable.

    Very nice mobile, recommended.

    The phone is fast and really excellent in most ways. I chose it because it can have two SIM cards and one large memory card. However, to my horror, it cannot have both at the same time as one of the SIM card slots is also intended for memory cards. So it's either a single SIM card and memory card, or two SIM cards and NO memory card. The memory is 128 GB, yes. But you quickly get used to it, and fill it up.
    This one must be aware of.

    Fast and smooth, the phone and apps work great and the screen is fine. The format is a good compromise between agility and clarity.

    Sad that the camera cannot focus when zooming in on something, then it only focuses at the near limit so taking a picture of something distant does not work at all.

    - Poor battery life and slow charge compared to oneplus
    - (applies to all modern mobiles) Glass front & back with metal edge = fragile durability, just like all phones nowadays. I want plastic back, like the first android handsets. They held, so do the modern mobiles. I sound like a back striker, but f ** k. Even with shells and screen protectors, they still only last a year. I can't change every year ... and think about the environment!

    Good phone that is just right in size and features. There are many pluses but consider this before you buy:

    Fingerprint sensor placement is probably the worst on the market. It sits on the power button at the top right of the phone. If you, like me, often hold the phone in the left hand, this is useless for everyday use.

    Battery. Had read that it was bad but was still disappointed. Switched from a 2.5 year old oneplus 5 and now gets to charge the phone more often. Every night plus a little during the day for the phone to stay alive.

    Went from S7 to S10e a month ago.

    S10 seems like a powerful budget phone, but doesn't feel like a flag ship in some ways not really pointed out in any review I watched before buying.

    I'm seriously considering changing phone due to poor battery life. It typically drains 10% just on standby, and I can't understand how the rest of the 3000+ mAh can take so few hours to use. I get the feeling apps are not put to sleep correctly (setting are correct). I am probably considered a "power user" though (toggling maybe 20 apps), and if you think you are one as well ... I plug it in 3 to 4 times a day just to keep it alive. Mind you, I get the 5.5 hours you get when running bench mark, the battery is fine.

    WiFi analysis does not work on s10e. It does not update, it does not find all APs the S7 does. I compare to S7, which I'm actually now stuck with again just for this reason. Could be the app doesn't really support s10e, but it claims it does.

    I get a feeling something more is different / budget in the s10e than just the stated hw differences ...

    Should I buy an S10 or S10 + instead now? I haven't decided yet. I will borrow and try one out first. I'll probably go for the s10 +.

    Btw, the scroll function of the power button for notifications ... You will turn it off after it has opened accidentally 50 times when you just use the phone.
    Unlocking the phone with the power button is a real pain as well. You have to pick the phone up to reach it.

    Screen is OK. Speakers are OK. SD card reader is OK. 3.5mm OK. Screen brightness OK. Bixby button is NOT OK.

    Interesting phone but with too much bloat. Samsung has deeply integrated its crapware (bixby) which means that you have to spend your valuable time turning it off (feels like 100 places). Also, not all samsung apps can be uninstalled so they stay forever and waste space, battery life and speed.

    Otherwise it is small and smooth and takes nice pictures.

    Very good phone. Estimate that it doesn't have curved edges like S10 and 1500 SEK cheaper. Feels premium, solid, fast and modern. Don't think it feels budget. The screen is as cruel as any Amoled, what a black. The screen is 5.8 "compared to the S10's 6.1". If you want the larger screen it is S10 that applies, it feels more flagship mobile. Think the size 5.8 "is ok. The finger sensor is in the On / Off button which is very good. However, the button sits slightly high on the right side to be really good, but it's ok. Stereo sound, one speaker at the bottom and the other sitting under the screen at the top.

    I have had iPhone since they were released and S10E is my first Android handset. My judgment is seen in the light of that. I have had my Samsung for quite exactly 6 months.

    + Small, smooth and lightweight.
    + Really nice to be able to make the home screen their own. iOS feels so senselessly outdated in that aspect.
    + Very easy login to public networks. Apple has a lot to learn here.
    + Incredibly smooth and smart to be able to charge other gadgets with the phone! When traveling, you only take the cable to charge the phone. Clock and headphones are charged via the phone! Absolutely incredibly smooth!

    - No option to select playlists via the car's interface (neither with Apple Music or Spotify). Badly.
    - OneUI is polished and pleasant to use. But it is a lot of bugs (non-critical) that destroy the overall impression.
    - Samsung and Google have the same apps, which creates confusion for the uninitiated. It feels fragmented and incoherent.
    - The fingerprint reader has received a lot of praise and when it works it is incredibly fast (as fast as Apple's solution). But it is hard to hit and many times I have to try several times before it hits.
    - Controlling the notes is a nightmare and it is hardly intuitive to understand the controls.
    - Battery life is disappointing. Today, the battery was at 100% at 0515 and at 1500 at just 20%. The use has been moderate (about 2 hours of music via bluethand and otherwise little use). The biggest problem with battery life is that it varies so much. Some days it can be quite ok, others like today. Worthless.
    - Sharp edge between the glass and the frame around the side that feels B and far from Apple's polished chassis.
    - Bixby is laughable and incredibly frustrating not being able to re-map the Google Assistant side button.

    Samsung delivers in normal order. Some talk about problems with the bluetooth in the car but nothing I noticed, probably depends on which car brand you drive on (Volkswagen, BMW works blames freely) Awesome camera and totally okay battery life. Do not know if I paid more for s10, s10 + when I do not see the delights of curved screens. Have owned iPhone before but their software is so outdated and the product itself is too locked for my purpose.

    Very happy after a couple of weeks of use. Big downside for me is the fingerprint reader, fail to get used to the strange location.

    Also want to emphasize one thing: the SOUND. Don't understand how you managed to cream out so full and powerful sound in a phone. Best I heard on a phone.

    Ordered a S10e for 5720 SEK from Aptel. 2000kr cheaper than other vendors so it was a chap.
    Everything worked well except that Samsung Pay did not work. It was not solved by samsung's help but by googling and factory restoration. Since my ex was imported from Hungary (only the EU was on the website) there was an Instruction Book on Hungarian.

    Switch from S8 plus


    + faster overall opening of apps, loading web pages etc. At least now, few hope it won't win over time.

    + Size and format, nice to avoid these oversize phones, you also see no more text when browsing a S8 plus.

    + the fingerprint reader is on the power button and works properly, S8ans worth a joke both in terms of location and how well (bad) it worked

    + the wide-angle camera seems fun, see if you use it in everyday life.

    + Much better sound from the speakers


    - The pressure-sensitive home button on the S8 is gone

    - Slightly lower maximum brightness on the display compared to the S8 Plus, though enough sunlight

    - The power button sits slightly too high to be really comfortable.

    - The price is too high in general, bought mine for 5700 which is on the verge of what it is worth.


    No major difference on the camera compared to S8

    Screen resolution slightly worse than S8, you can see if you look closely at zoomed images, otherwise not.

    Conclusion: Not worth changing from S8 or S9 to S10e, changed only because I cracked the screen on S8 plus, otherwise I would not change.

    9/10 for my Snapdragon version

    Had given it 8/10 if I had bought the European one.

    + Positive!

    SCREEN AND SPEAKERS (absolutely top class in all S10 models, perfect if you consume a lot of media)

    Smooth format / small / weighs a little

    The UI flows really well

    One Ui

    Samsung's Good lock

    Good community that supports the device with Bixby Remapper, Google camera etc

    Fast updates, received both March and April's security update in the same month.

    Dark Mode (Waiting for Android Q to get a total dark mode)

    The camera with the Google cam modden, otherwise it's "just" quite ok

    Absolutely Ok battery life

    Bixby Routines (Lighter version of Bags, but completely built into One Ui)

    Wireless fast charging

    Samsung Pay

    The "Notchen" or the camera hole is the best solution I've used ... Roughly like a TV screen with a channel log in the corner, you stop noticing it after a while.

    Headphone jack (that it even needs to be mentioned says pretty much about the competition)

    - Negative

    Poorly placed power button, can be partially solved with Bixby Remapper

    Charged not as quickly with cable as many other competitors, however, should apparently be with an upgrade

    On the whole, I really like how Samsung has designed its version of Android, love all its modification possibilities with Good Lock, Bixby Rotines etc etc! Prefer it clearly before Stock Android, I didn't think 2-4 years ago.

    Many of all the minus that a former Apple user gave the S10e in a recencion a little further down depend much on ignorance of Android / Samsung OneUi

    Certainly you can get a little better battery life / camera if you choose for example Huawei P30 Pro ... But then you lose so much of the possibilities with Samsung's One Ui and instead get stuck with Huawei's abysmal EMUI.

    The better battery life is due to the fact that Huawei is extremely aggressive with how it handles apps, which means that you miss notifications.

    You who are complaining about bloatware have not realized that you can deactivate very many apps compared to other manufacturers, eg all Facebook apps can completely shut down.

    Doesn't it matter that it doesn't have Snapdragon 855, it has everything else you could wish for, and honestly, is there really any noticeable difference in vivo? The wide-angle camera is very useful! Otherwise, perfect format. Needless to say, shell for glass-backed mobiles, can tell about Spigen tough armor, which is stylish and stylish, plus it "marks" the Bixby button so you don't accidentally access it instead of the volume buttons, in combination with Zagg Glass +.

    Edit: nice to avoid hooking on Samsung's edge trend!

    Didn't think I'd change in size but after various 6 + inch phones of a bit cheaper cut I finally found home it feels like.

    The shape factor is absolutely perfect. Everything I missed with the Galaxys series is here; the screen, the camera, the feeling of quality in both materials and components. Never been so happy with a new mobile.

    Some bumps, as always:
    -Battery time passively is cruel, however, it feels that it draws quite a lot of cream when I use the screen for longer moments, eg video watching.

    -The fingerprint reader is a little too high up on the right side to suit me. Take time to get used to it.

    -Samsung's usual blue apps are included ... not least bixby which can be turned off now and the bixby button can be reprogrammed ... but after 2 weeks I still find junk paper to delete or disable.

    - Will never get used to $ 7500 for a "budget model".
