Coming to Headphone jack and earphones, the no headphone jack was equipped We have to listen through USB-C Port but the Quality is Good.

Ram Management is done very well on this Galaxy S10 lite device. it features 8 GB ram and I did not notice any lags with the device and there is no reloading of apps on this S10 lite. the Multitasking experience is nice.
Coming to Gaming, we played Asphalt 9 & PUBG at the 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 S10 Lite is very good and there are no issues with cellular call quality. we have taken long calls in a day and the other party doesn’t don’t 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 the earpiece to listen clearly in the noisy conditions.
