Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10 +, the tenth wonder made smartphone

Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10 +: features, prices

Big day for Samsung because today it presents its maximum bet for this 2019: Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10 +. And it's already 10 years!

Next we will review what this pair of mobiles of the highest possible range have for us, but first, it is worth reviewing that they are not the only novelties of the Samsung UNPACKED event.

For the first time see the Galaxy S family has a little brother: the Samsung Galaxy S10e. With a more traditional design and some specifications lowered to get a small and cheaper terminal.

And do you remember when 4G started and everyone took “LTE” models? Well, we have here the first with the “5G” cardigan: the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G. With the essence of this S10 family but bigger, with even more cameras and with the great potential of the 5G connection.

Specifications denoting that nothing is missing

Yes, high-end prices are rising. Although they are also increasingly high-end, more complete, more versatile. After the complexity in specifications of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 it was expected that on paper there would be absolutely nothing missing in the Samsung Galaxy S10. And so it is, they have (almost) everything and of the best possible quality.

For the first time we have WiFi 6 (802.11ax) in a mobile phone. Maybe too soon.

Maintains the 3.5mm Jack headphone jack, has NFC for mobile payments contactless, tray for dual SIM or SIM card + microSD up to 512 GB, heart rate sensor on the back and, for the first time on a mobile, Wi-Fi 6 (also known as the 802.11ax Wi-Fi protocol).

Wi-Fi 6 is still not very useful because practically nobody has a router in your home or compatible office. If it is more extended, we could take advantage of higher download and upload speeds over Wi-Fi while congestion less on the router.

Other high-end details are not lacking, such as wireless charging (which we will talk about later) or IP68 water and dust resistance.

If something knows how to do Samsung very well it is keep your identity. In a world as changing as mobile telephony, where as soon as we have 1 camera as we have 5, it is difficult to achieve consistency year after year that allows you to see the mobile of a brand and identify it.
