SAMSUNG GALAXY S10 PLUS KUWAIT REVIEW
Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus is now in Kuwait. Samsung released a ton of phones: S10, S10 Plus and S10 E on March 8th, 2019. Let me go ahead and spoil it for you. This is the best android phone for 2019,the Bar is set. The phone is a beast with the 12GB Ram Exynos 9820 (Snapdragon 855 in us). The beefed-up version will cost you 485kd (1593 us) that’s an expensive phone but there are cheaper optionS available, if you pick up the 128 GB with 8GB Ram it is at 300kd(985us).
Lets talk about the phone, The S10’s have amazing hardware which you’d expect from a device this expensive. This phone is comfortable to hold. Samsung is up to Apple’s level when it comes to the feel, finish and ahead of all the android phones in the market. The curved front and rear glass seamlessly curve into the metal frame of the phone, which makes it easier to hold. Eeven though they have large screens.
The phone is pretty big and you cant use it with one hand. During my use it was quite difficult to use even though I have big hands. So I would recommend a cover, and a popsocket. It has a headphone jack and USB-C charging port. The speakers are good, has stereo sound. The phone is IP68 water resistance. The phone has expandable storage via micro sd.
The phone has the benefit quick charging and it comes with a fast charging brick. Till now Apple does not include, one in the box, just saying .You can even use the S10 to wirelessly charge another device like Samsung’s Galaxy buds or Galaxy watch Active (smartwatch) and any phone with wireless charging. Tho it’s not a very popular feature, it’s there!
The screen is a beauty, it is a Samsung thing to do the displays, right! S10 Plus is no doubt. With a 6.4- inch OLED display, the colors popping amazing viewing angles. The display gets extremely bright outdoors and u can view it under the sunlight as well. The screen is all the way up, both bottom and top with very slim bezels above and below it.
The S10 comes with an ultrasonic in-screen fingerprint sensor and even works if your hand is wet. Tts kinda slow compared to the standard fingerprint sensor and the in display fingerprint sensor (it couldnt read my finger at times) but did get better eventually.
The camera is good, it comes with three different lenses standard12 megapixels, (f/1.5 optically stabilized lens) telephoto(12 megapixels, f/2.4 optically stabilized lens) and an ultrawide (16 megapixel, f/2.2 lens) clicks good pictures with high dynamic range and you know Samsungs’ aggressive contrast and punchy colors. The front camera has the new 10 -megapixels sensor with autofocus the images come out sharp. The images at low light are not so good. Talking about the video, you can shoot up to 4K 60 fps or 4k 30 fps with the ultrawide or telephoto.
Speaking about the software it runs one UI on top of Android 9.0 it makes the phone easier to use. and hopefully, Samsung release software updates faster.
S10 Plus battery life is A+ it lasts two days for me with light usage. And with heavy usage it has no problem lasting for a full day.
