Comparing Samsung's flagship Galaxy S10 and S10+ smartphones, to see if you should upgrade to the Plus model. How do they stack up for specs, camera hardware and features, speed, battery life and beyond?
The Galaxy S10 series has just launched and I've had the chance to go hands-on for an early review, ahead of the official unveiling. These premium smartphones boast impressive performance, Samsung's dense One UI software, and the new Infinity-O Display - but there are plenty of differences too. The S10 Plus isn't just bigger, you also get five camera lenses instead of 'just' four. There's also a ceramic model packing more RAM and storage, while the S10+ boosts the battery size also.
Of course, the price will also rise if you want that ultimate Samsung phone - and the standard S10 feels nicer to grip and use.
So which Galaxy are you more tempted by? Check out my full GS10 vs GS10e comparison to see how the 'lite' model holds up against the full-fat version!

I have s9 plus and it is unwieldy to use, especially with one hand, might go for the regular this year, can't afford the s20

The colour is so off for the Samsung s10 selfie compared to the S10+ at 6minutes in. Why is that? Surely that second lens can't make that much of a difference with the colour science?

So I guess if you're not a selfie person then spending an extra 100 on the S10+ is not really worth it?

Still frustrated by Android terrible video sharing in text messaging, compared to iPhone. Pointless to have amazing video recording device, if your messaging or uploading compresses it down to horrific quality. Why can't Android find this a priority to fix already?

Is it worth it to upgrade my S9 Plus to a S10?

@Micos Pineda Note 9 is around 9months old now. Still a great phone. I would recommend you get the upcoming note then. It will be a lot more expensive though

S10 or the Note 9? 🤔
Gabriel Alejandro NF
But is the s10+ too big? Or is it just perfect?
Haneko Year ago
It depends, Iv been using a Note 8 since its release and i find it often times a little too big and can be frustrating to use one handed if you need your other hand for something else. I ordered the regular s10 because of this. I used to think oh i need the bigger screen for entertainment but in all honesty the difference is hardly noticeable entertainment wise but the way the phone feels in hand is drastically different. I would recomend going to a store and try them I did and i didnt feel the s10+ added much to the usability screen size wise but it certainly made it more difficult to use one handed.
RIP 20 dollar phones

Nice video man thanks. Think I'll be going for the s10 😁
Hi, I've been watching this channel for a while now to try and reach an informed decision about what phone to get next and found your videos to be such a great resource. Very clear and informative with all the right, useful information. One question though, how come HTC never get mentioned in any comparisons or reviews?

firstly difference between s10 and s10 plus is just 1 less front camera n less battery.But the s10's battery still does good for one whole day.Secondly one less front camera doesnt matter at all,no difference if u see.Thirdly s10's front camera is less intrusive because of one small hole which makes screen more watchable.I preordered s10 plus in the beginning n then changed my decision to s10.Its compact to n ez to hold in one hand.My experience i had xs max n note 9 though u have big hands holding in one hands still is difficult.Go for s10 without thinking anymore ;)

Question: I've seen in some videos galaxy s10 gestures in which you can swipe up to go home similar to the iPhone X. And in other videos, it shows the home button as a software button. Can you customize it? I have no idea what's going on
Yea not only samsung but most of phones have the option to hide navigation buttons and use gestures

Evanswachtz which video?
Evansioi Year ago
@Abdelhameed Kassem I believe they were testing the S10e, S10 and S10+ battery life and the S10+ made it out with 25% better. It makes sense because the specs are almost the same, display is same resolution, etc.
Abdelhameed Kassem
@Evansioi thanks a lot for your reply. Were these tests done side by side or did you come up with the conclusion from watching separate tests for each ? Thank you.
Evansioi Year ago
@Abdelhameed Kassem 25% longer on the S10+ compared to S10 from some tests I've seen.
Why in the hell they made the plus bulky like the note series
GGroupp DestinyG
nope i own s9plus note 9 and s10+ .s10+ is a lot smaller than note 9
@CarlJoseph Avelino Sadly.. Most probably, they'll make the note even bigger !! I like the Galaxies more to be pocket friendly, easy one hand hold & use. >>A phone not a phablet
CarlJoseph Avelino
I held and i can confirm, a note with no pen
Battery test?

I would suspect a very high number of users put their phone in a case. Once that case is on, the S10+ is going to feel even larger. I am moving from an S7 and the dimensions of it vs the S10 are almost exactly the same. But the S10 being all screen is going to rock.
A Nightmare on Any Street
Yea I preordered the plus but its gonna be even bigger with that case on and I have the s9+ but I my opt to the regular s10 for that very reason

I don't get the different with a front camera. What if I want a 6.1 inch phone but still want the same self results as in 6.4 inch phone? I Mean 6.4 is a lot so why I gotta lose just because I think 6.1 is enough. I'd prefer if the only major difference was the size of them and not cutting out on things because something is smaller altho it's still big if u actually have it in ur hand

Sam Year ago
I think most are on board with the S10. It took me a minute to realize you only have one camera cutout on the non Plus version. The battery life/0.3 inches of added screen along with that selfie lens wasn't enough to get me. I also think the 6.1" screen is gonna feel just right in hand.

Really confused between S10 Vs S10 plus. Feel S10 doesnt have any major disadvantages and must be easier to use because of its size. Am currently using S6 edge. Please help.

s10 plus is only .3 inches taller and almost exactly the same width it's really not much bigger. You also get a bigger battery which is great.

The ratio of the screen has been made smaller by 'pinching' the screen. If the gentleman 'zoomed in' then the video would fill the screen and the camera would be visible again - hope this helps!
