Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus are the most glamorous phones Samsung has ever made. So, what’s the difference between a galaxy s10 and s10 plus?
Samsung’s 10th-anniversary Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 Plus smartphones, which have been widely rumored (often for silly reasons), are finally official.
With all-new looks, are these renovated models just as creative on the inside, and are their much higher asking costs justified?
All the information you need to know is here…
Difference Between a Galaxy S10 and S10 plus
Displays – Ultrasonic Knock-Outs
There’s just one place to begin for the Galaxy S10 line: their revolutionary “hole-punch” screens. Despite the controversy surrounding Samsung’s choice to place its front-facing cameras on display, it enables them to lower their devices’ bezels and accommodate increasingly giant screens.
- Gorilla Glass 6 (front), Gorilla Glass 5 (rear) on the Galaxy S10’s 6.1-inch Dynamic AMOLED+ display (back)
- S10 Plus 6.4″ Dynamic AMOLED+, 19:9 aspect ratio and 1440 x 3040-pixel resolution, Gorilla Glass 6 (front) and Gorilla Glass 5 (back) (back)
These are significant improvements over the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus’s 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch panels, respectively, and a step up from their original resolution (1440 x 2960 pixels).
But the most talked-about feature is the camera cut-outs. ACCORDING TO SAMSUNG, Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 Plus have camera aspect ratios of 88.3 percent and 87.5 percent, respectively, which is still high but not class-leading, thanks to the new screens.
- The display of Samsung’s Galaxy S10 Plus has a dual-camera cutout.
- The twin front cameras on Samsung’s Galaxy S10 Plus have been carved out of the screen.
As a result of these displays’ superior brightness and color accuracy (1200 nits vs. 1100nits), they are even more impressive than their predecessors. It’s the world’s first Ultrasonic fingerprint scanner that’s drawing the most attention.
Design – More For Less
There’s a big difference between the Galaxy S10 and the Galaxy S10 Plus when you look beyond their screens.
- As of now, the Galaxy S10 is only available in the United States, but it will be coming to Europe and the rest of the world before the end of the year (5.54 oz)
S10 Plus 157.6×74.1×7.8mm, 175g (ceramic)/198g (ceramic) 6.20×2.92×0.31inch, 175g (ceramic) (6.17 oz)
- Weight: 163g, 5.81-inches by 2.70-inches by 0.33-inches (5.75 oz)
- S9 Plus – 6.22 x 2.91 x 0.33-inch (6.22 by 2.91 by 0.33 millimetres) 189g (6.67 oz)
Both phones are slimmer and lighter than their predecessors, despite larger displays, extra cameras, and larger batteries. This is a remarkable accomplishment, given the range’s steady weight rise over the last decade (the original Galaxy S was just 119g).
The ceramic version of the Galaxy S10 Plus is an exception. A premium, the long-lasting finish is reserved for the top-of-the-line 1TB model (more on it below), although the weight penalty may turn customers off.
A more diverse selection of launch colors is a pleasant change on the surface. In addition to the ceramic finish (black or white) on the top, both versions come in Prism White, Prism Black, Prism Green, Prism Blue, Canary Yellow, and Flamingo Pink.
Cameras – Triple Up
The cameras on the Galaxy S10 series have good and bad news. An encouraging development: more cameras than ever before may be found.
- Dual Pixel PDAF, OIS, 2x optical zoom; 12MP, f/2.4, 52mm (telephoto), 1/3.6″, 1.0m, autofocus, OIS; 16MP, f/2.2, 12mm (telephoto); 1/2.55″, 1.4m, Dual Pixel PDAF, OIS; on the back of the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 Plus: (ultrawide)
- f/1.9, a focal length of 26 millimeters, and dual-pixel phase detection autofocus define the Galaxy S10’s front camera.
Front: 8MP, f/2.2, 22mm (wide), depth sensor on the Galaxy S10 Plus
A lot of cameras, for sure. With the addition of a 123-degree ultra-wide lens, both phones now have three modules on the back. In contrast, the Galaxy S10 has a single front-facing camera, and the Galaxy S10 Plus has a pair of cameras for increased depth perception when taking portrait photographs.
The wide-angle lens is a welcome addition, but the back cameras remain unaltered from the Galaxy S9 Plus, putting it farther behind the iPhone XS and Google’s Pixel 3 in terms of performance. You may have more features and better picture processing, but to have the same main rear-facing cameras is a bit of a shock.
Front cameras have slower f/1.7 apertures than the Galaxy S9 as well. This has to be tested in the actual world before raising any red flags, although it does seem odd on paper.
