Display

With a 6.4-inch AMOLED display, the S10+ boasts the biggest display ever to feature on a Samsung’s S-series devices. That’s not all either. The huge screen has a 93.1% screen-to-body ratio. And Samsung has smartly stayed away from the notch; instead, they opted to go with the punch-hole to accommodate the two selfie cameras. This means more screen estate to play with. Woohoo!

The display is highly detailed and colourful too, thanks to the 526 ppi pixel density and HDR 10+ support.

Design

You’ll notice a few subtle improvements in the design department. For starters, the S10+ has a thinner aluminium frame compared to the S9+. The fingerprint sensor is inbuilt and powered by ultrasonic technology. There’s a reverse charging module at the rear, which is again not really visible, and you’ll hardly be able to locate it. Also, despite its huge screen, the phone is easy to hold even for those with small hands.

Although there’s no major design changes to boast about, the S10 Plus does offer a cleaner and more polished appearance than the previous S-series devices.

Camera

In total, you’d be getting five amazing cameras on this device – two selfie cameras and three at the rear. And they aren’t just there for aesthetic purposes; each of these cameras serve a particular purpose, and together they enhance your overall photography experience.

The triple lenses at the back include a 12 MP regular camera lens, a 12 MP telephoto lens and a 16 MP ultra-wide lens. At the front, there’s a 10 MP lens and an 8 MP lens. The latter is useful for adding depth to selfies. Well, in short, you can expect beautiful photos and videos with the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus.

Battery

The previous S phone, the S9 Plus, boasted an impressive battery life with its 3,500 mAh battery. So, you can imagine how good it’s gonna be on the 4,100 mAh (a new high, of course) battery-powered S10 Plus, can’t you? Well, you can expect an all-day battery life easily, if not more.

Another interesting feature that accompanies the S10 Plus is the reverse wireless charging option. Of course, this is already seen in Huawei’s Mate 20 Pro. But it’s indeed a curve ball for the S10 Plus. Basically, with Wireless PowerShare, the back of the S10 Plus acts as a Qi charging mat and any phone with Qi charging capability can be charged by placing it on the back of your S10 Plus. Cool, right?

Our Thoughts

Well, for starters, it’s too early to come to a verdict about the S10 Plus. The phone will hit the Indian market only on the 7th of March. And until we can get our hands on it, we can’t really gauge how the phone will perform at all fronts.
