5.8″ Full HD+ screen :

here in Display Department S10e Features an Excellent FHD+ Infinity O Dynamic AMOLED panel screen with 438 pixels per inch, the colours are rich and awesome, viewing angles are perfect. there are No issues & problems with screen quality. It is very bright to see in direct sunlight. it is HDR 10+ Certified So you can Play HDR content on the phone without any issues. the Camera hole is placed to a side, and it will not interfere while watching content.

Stereo Speakers and Headphone Jack:

  in S10e samsung Used their AkG tuned Streo Spekaers which were is very loud when compared to last year’s S9 Plus. these speakers are supported by Dolby Atmos Surround Sound technology (Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus) which help to get clear sound output from the mobile speaker. here earpiece Also Acts as Speaker which gives a little sound to feel the streo effect is working

Coming to Headphone jack and earphones, the headphone jack was equipped with UHQ 32-Bit encoder which provides a punchy and clear sound with dolby atmos support. the AKG headphones are same as they provided with S9 series which good for listening music and for taking voice calls clearly.

Build Quality : 

 S10e is also Build with a stainless steel frame on side and front and back of the device is protected with Corning Gorilla glass 5 like S10 and S10+. Because of Glass onthe back it is slippery to hold and gives Gredient light Reflection like a prism. No issues of creakiness with build quality. well built and the bezels are shrunk down to place a 5.8″ AMOLED screen in the 5.1″ chassy.

Side fingerprint scanner: 

S10e Features a side mounted finger print sensor which is included into the power button. By looks it is Small to see but, fast and very accurate to recognize the fingerprint of the user. This placement of this sensor is on the top Right Side of the phone. Here Samsung included the fingerprint gestures which we saw in the Last year Flagship phones named Galaxy S9 & S9 Plus.

Face unlocking:

 S10e Uses the face unlock with its 10MP RGB Camera. the face unlocking is Quite fast and Secure. it works in the p[itch dark conditions with medium Amount of light from the AMOLED Panel. the Animations Around the Camera are Interesting to see.

Weight balance: 

S10e feels so small and light with 5.8″ Screen and 3000 mAh battery equipped. This S10e can be used by one hand. The weight balance is done very well on the device.

Battery life:

 My Galaxy S10e lasted a Full Working day with heavy usage and at the end of the day, I had 10% of charge left in the phone which is good for a 3000 mAH Battery The ideal drain of S10e is very low as S10 +. the Adaptive fast charging makes a difference and charges the phone in 120 min which is good but, Samsung has to Bring the New Charging technology atleast upto 30W.


One UI Operating System :

  One UI present on the S10e is very fast & so fluid, No lags were noticed. it comes with less bloatware majorly Samsung And Microsoft apps were included. There are some extra features like Dual Apps, Direct video calling feature, Always on Display make this UI special.

Performance: 

My Galaxy S10e managed to do day to day tasks very well like the big brother S10 Plus. there are No issues and problems with the UI and there are no heating issues with S10 e.

Ram Management : 

Ram Management is done very well on this Galaxy S10e device. it features 6 GB ram and I did not notice any lags with the device and there are no reloading of apps on this S10e. Multitasking experience is nice on S10e like S10+

Coming to Gaming, we played Asphalt 9 & PUBG at highest graphics setting without any lags & frame drops in the game. thanks to the processor for giving us a lag-free gaming experience & liquid cooling pipe for dissipating heat from the processor. but the screen size is small, so you can feel some uncomfortable while playing PubG. after a week of usage, you won’t notice that

Call Quality :

 the Call quality on S10e is very good and there are no issues with cellular call quality. we have took long calls in a day and the other party doesnt dont complain. the earpiece is included in the top bezel & its very loud. in S10 Series devices there is an option to increase the sound from earpiece to listen clearly in the noisy conditions.

Camera: 

Coming to the Camera Department, S10e features a Dual Camera setup on the back of the device and a single camera on the front of the device. they works perfectly in S10e. llet’s divide the cameras and look at the performance of them

1. Main Camera: the 12MP main Camera is Awesome and features a Dual Aperture and can vary from F/1.5 to F/2.4. the Low light & daylight pictures are very good and contain very good details like a natural photo. Night mode takes a long exposure shot and gives more details in the night like S10+. the steady shot also works well to take steady pictures. Exposure is in contol with decent Dynamic range.

2. Ultra Wide Angle Camera: the ultra wide angle lens on S10e works does a good job. it captures a much wider picture in 123˚ field of view with good details. exposure is control with decent dynamic range.

Video recording can be done up to 4k UHD (3840×2160) .the video footage has awesome Colours with great sharpness and decent dynamic range. Stabilization is awesome in 4kUHD And 1080p FHD recording. it is the world’s first mobile camera to Capture HDR 10 video

Coming to the Super Slow Mo S10e can record 720P Quality video at 960 frames per second which is Good to see.

Selfie camera :

  S10e features a 10MP selfie camera with large 1.22 μm pixel size and
80˚ field of view. it has a fixed aperture of F/1.9. the Picture quality is fantastic and captures pictures in an Wide view. AI beautification mode is available. Photos are well detailed and contain a decent dynamic range.

This single camera can be used to take portraits images from the front with the Help of Artifical Intelligence.I

WiFi 6:

 S10e has WiFi 6 integraton and world first phone to feature this technology. S10e can get best wifi speeds from the router, without disconnecting from a long distance up to 50 feet like S10+ which is a advantage in S10e.

Reverse Wireless Charging: 

Before I had Sid that S10e also has a Same DNA which S10 and S10+ had. this S10e also features a Reverse Wireless charging technology which great to see in the Samsung Flagship device like S10e. it can easily charge Qi-enabled devices by placing on the back of S10e. it can also work like a Wireless charger by connecting the power source.

Bixby Key: 

Samsung Implemented Their Own Voice Assistant named Bixby. it was introduced with Galaxy S8. now in S10e. it has got Some new updates And now we can easily customize or remap the Bixby key very easily to other Apps from settings.

CONS

the beautification mode in front cmaera is turned on Automatically and beautifies the pictures

2-D Face unlocks cannot recognize the face correctly, it opens for twins.

VERDICT

Who can Get S10e: if you want a bigger screen with more resolution with an extra camera on the rear then you can go to S10+. if you want S10+ DNA with a Smaller screen with fixed FHD+ resolution, Sacrificing Ultrasonic fingerprint scanner you cn go with S10e.
