Our Verdict

The Galaxy windows p not working S10 Plus is windows p not working Samsung's new 'everything phone' for 2019, windows p not working helping disrupt the sameness of the windows p not working last windows p not working few windows p not working generations of handsets.

2 windows p not working minute review

The windows p not working Samsung windows p not working Galaxy S10 Plus windows p not working is windows p not working the almost-everything-included windows p not working Samsung phone windows p not working you really windows p not working want windows p not working – if you can afford windows p not working it and handle windows p not working its massive 6.4-inch display.

While windows p not working it's still a powerful 2019 windows p not working flagship windows p not working phone, the S10 Plus windows p not working isn't the biggest phone windows p not working in windows p not working the windows p not working line technically, as windows p not working the pricier Samsung windows p not working Galaxy S10 windows p not working 5G and cheaper windows p not working budget windows p not working Samsung windows p not working Galaxy S10 Lite windows p not working both windows p not working have windows p not working larger 6.7-inch displays. I

f windows p not working you want the windows p not working latest and windows p not working greatest, the Samsung Galaxy S20 windows p not working Plus and windows p not working even higher-specced Samsung windows p not working Galaxy S20 windows p not working Ultra supplant the windows p not working phone - but windows p not working by the same token, windows p not working the windows p not working S10 Plus windows p not working got a windows p not working big discount, keeping it windows p not working as an appealing alternative to the windows p not working new (and pricey) hotness.

We windows p not working were immediately drawn windows p not working to windows p not working the Galaxy S10 Plus as the windows p not working bigger and windows p not working better windows p not working version of windows p not working the Galaxy S10 and cheaper windows p not working Galaxy S10e. It windows p not working redefines what a windows p not working 'phablet' is windows p not working in windows p not working 2019, with a 6.4-inch edge-to-edge screen windows p not working so large it windows p not working displaces the front camera windows p not working to a hole in windows p not working the top corner. It’s Samsung’s marginally better answer windows p not working to the iPhone XS notch.

With a 93.1% windows p not working screen-to-body windows p not working ratio, the pixels now stretch from windows p not working the small top speaker windows p not working down to the thin bottom chin, and windows p not working spill over the curved windows p not working left and right edges. This is windows p not working the windows p not working best looking windows p not working screen in a smartphone, windows p not working bar windows p not working none. windows p not working Hidden under the windows p not working glass is an ultrasonic windows p not working fingerprint sensor windows p not working on the front, and the new Wireless PowerShare windows p not working feature on windows p not working back, allowing you to windows p not working Qi-charge other devices.

The windows p not working back has windows p not working a windows p not working triple-lens camera windows p not working that windows p not working takes windows p not working normal, telephoto, and windows p not working new ultra-wide photos. windows p not working You can capture windows p not working more windows p not working of windows p not working what's in windows p not working front of you windows p not working – without having to take a few windows p not working steps back. windows p not working While it ranks below the Huawei windows p not working P30 Pro windows p not working on windows p not working our best camera phone list, windows p not working but windows p not working Samsung offers windows p not working a fun-to-use, versatile camera.

We've seen some windows p not working of these ideas before from Huawei windows p not working and LG. But the S10 Plus is windows p not working an amalgam of hallmark windows p not working features in windows p not working rival handsets with a dose windows p not working of first-to-launch aspects like faster Wi-Fi windows p not working 6 windows p not working and an HDR10+ windows p not working screen. It's the best overall package in windows p not working among big pricey, windows p not working smartphones.

Sold? To windows p not working complicate your buying decision, the windows p not working Galaxy S10 5G is windows p not working an even bigger and better S10 windows p not working phone, the windows p not working Samsung Galaxy windows p not working Note 10 windows p not working Plus is even more premium as a Samsung windows p not working smartphone, and if windows p not working you've got all windows p not working the windows p not working money windows p not working in the world, the windows p not working foldable Samsung windows p not working Galaxy windows p not working Fold is windows p not working also available to windows p not working buy.

Despite these newer handsets, the windows p not working S10 Plus windows p not working is best Samsung phone, if you windows p not working can handle the price windows p not working and size.

It has windows p not working many competitors too though, like the iPhone windows p not working 11 Pro Max, windows p not working Sony windows p not working Xperia 1, and OnePlus 7 Pro, all windows p not working of which have similar specs windows p not working and identical or windows p not working lower price tags, windows p not working so check them out before windows p not working you commit to the Samsung windows p not working Galaxy S10 windows p not working Plus.

Samsung's 'Ultimate Performance windows p not working Edition' variant, only sold windows p not working on its own windows p not working site, packs a mammoth 12GB windows p not working of RAM windows p not working and 1TB of storage, windows p not working and has an equally monstrous windows p not working price windows p not working tag: $1,599 windows p not working / £1,399 windows p not working / windows p not working AU$2,399.

Display

  • 6.4-inch QHD+ screen with an impressive 93.1% screen-to-body ratio
  • Infinity-O display type's punch hole fits two front camera in top right
  • First phone with HDR10+, but beware of false touches from lack of bezel

The 6.4-inch windows p not working Super AMOLED display on windows p not working the Samsung windows p not working Galaxy windows p not working S10 Plus windows p not working makes this the windows p not working biggest S phone screen windows p not working to date – bigger than 5.8-inch Galaxy S9 windows p not working Plus and matching windows p not working the windows p not working Note windows p not working 9 screen size. It's windows p not working also a lot windows p not working better.

The main windows p not working draw for us is windows p not working the 93.1% windows p not working screen-to-body ratio that fits windows p not working more windows p not working pixels windows p not working across a tighter body. windows p not working Samsung's new Infinity-O display avoids using a notch windows p not working by opting for a laser-cut hole in windows p not working the top-right corner windows p not working for the front camera.

The hole windows p not working in windows p not working this 'punch-hole' display windows p not working is extra-large, as Samsung windows p not working dropped windows p not working in two front cameras to take better windows p not working portrait windows p not working selfies than windows p not working the single-lens Galaxy windows p not working S10 and S10e front cameras. Good windows p not working news, windows p not working we’ve not found windows p not working it too distracting. 

The default windows p not working resolution is Full HD+, but windows p not working you windows p not working can windows p not working crank it windows p not working to QHD+ windows p not working and it's windows p not working pin sharp, with HDR10+ for windows p not working superior contrast windows p not working and color. That's windows p not working an important windows p not working perk windows p not working if you’re windows p not working a windows p not working movie-watcher windows p not working on your phone – an idea which windows p not working isn’t so windows p not working crazy windows p not working its size.

One drawback to Samsung windows p not working chipping away bezel: we found windows p not working our encroaching palms making windows p not working false touches windows p not working on the windows p not working sensitive screen (especially when typing), often flipping windows p not working our on-screen keyboard between letters and numbers windows p not working to output windows p not working a bunch windows p not working of gobbledygook in embarrassing messages. windows p not working iPhone owners accustomed windows p not working to more otherwise-ugly bezel and windows p not working better palm rejection software, beware.

The Infinity-O display is Samsung's new look for windows p not working 2019, and it’s windows p not working enough windows p not working of a change if you've been windows p not working demanding something new. windows p not working It looks fantastic, windows p not working with bright, colorful windows p not working reproduction making the windows p not working best of images, icons, apps, games and windows p not working video.

Design

  • High-end 512GB/1TB version comes with a premium ceramic back
  • Perks: reverse wireless charging (new) and headphone jack (age-old)
  • You'll want a case to avoid dropping this big, slippery phone

The S10 Plus design windows p not working is windows p not working full of windows p not working surprises, windows p not working new windows p not working and old. Its windows p not working aluminum frame is thinner than windows p not working that of the S9 Plus, and still windows p not working sandwiched between smooth Gorilla windows p not working Glass windows p not working 6. Color choices windows p not working are ‘Prism’ windows p not working white, black windows p not working and windows p not working green, while the windows p not working 512GB and 1TB versions are backed by windows p not working ceramic in either white windows p not working or black.

The back of the Galaxy windows p not working S10 Plus almost windows p not working flush, with a triple-lens camera windows p not working array that has a very subtle windows p not working bump windows p not working outlining windows p not working it, and you windows p not working won't be able windows p not working to windows p not working see the reverse windows p not working wireless charging module is located windows p not working below this.

It's windows p not working roughly the dimensions of the windows p not working S9 Plus and windows p not working feels windows p not working better in-hand than windows p not working the physically windows p not working bigger Note 9, windows p not working which windows p not working has a windows p not working 83.4% screen-to-body windows p not working ratio. It's surprisingly easy to windows p not working hold in windows p not working the windows p not working hand for a ‘Plus’-sized handset, windows p not working though those with smaller palms will find windows p not working the glass-and-metal finish offers little windows p not working in windows p not working the way of windows p not working grip. We found ourselves using windows p not working two windows p not working hands, especially to type, and windows p not working suggest a windows p not working case before windows p not working walking out of the windows p not working store with this one.

On the left side, windows p not working the volume rocker sits windows p not working above a dedicated key for windows p not working Samsung's smart windows p not working assistant, windows p not working Bixby. Press this, and you'll launch the assistant, windows p not working giving you quick access windows p not working to voice commands windows p not working and the windows p not working Bixby Today screen. Unfortunately, it’s a windows p not working little windows p not working too easy to mistake this AI key for windows p not working the windows p not working volume-down button. Good news, windows p not working Samsung is windows p not working letting users re-map windows p not working the undesirable windows p not working Bixby windows p not working button this time.

Samsung windows p not working remains one of the windows p not working few windows p not working phone makers that hasn’t windows p not working ditched the 3.5mm headphone jack, windows p not working and what’s impressive is that it’s also windows p not working trying to sell its wireless windows p not working Galaxy Buds windows p not working without axing this venerable windows p not working feature. It’s a show windows p not working of strength windows p not working that windows p not working the company went windows p not working with windows p not working a windows p not working consumer-friendly design choice here.

In-screen windows p not working fingerprint sensor

  • In-screen fingerprint sensor is novel and mostly works for us now
  • Ultrasonic sensor works better than optical, but requires more pressure
  • Still not as fast or as fool-proof as a traditional fingerprint sensor

The fingerprint sensor windows p not working is another feature that windows p not working performs an invisible trick, windows p not working taking windows p not working a 3D windows p not working scan of your print. It's more accurate windows p not working than the Huawei windows p not working Mate 20 windows p not working and OnePlus 6T optical in-screen fingerprint windows p not working scanners, windows p not working even when our print was windows p not working a bit windows p not working wet. Its windows p not working downside is a slower windows p not working speed and the fact that windows p not working more windows p not working pressure is required. 

We experienced some failures windows p not working due it incorrect placement windows p not working at first, and with no physical ridge windows p not working to windows p not working guide our windows p not working finger we don't windows p not working expect windows p not working to eliminate failures completely. In windows p not working time, we windows p not working went from a first-time recognition windows p not working success rate of 80% windows p not working to a 95% windows p not working success rate. Some of windows p not working that was an update windows p not working and some of windows p not working it came down to windows p not working getting windows p not working used to the windows p not working invisible windows p not working sensor location.

These issues can be mitigated windows p not working if you opt to also windows p not working set up face unlock, which windows p not working we found could recognize us windows p not working faster than the fingerprint scanner – the windows p not working only issue windows p not working here windows p not working is windows p not working that you have to be looking at windows p not working the S10 windows p not working Plus windows p not working to unlock it and windows p not working it’s windows p not working less windows p not working secure.

Camera

  • Triple lens camera for normal, telephoto and ultra-wide photos 
  • 12.3MP main camera takes excellent photos rivaling Pixel 3
  • Ultra-wide camera is a great addition, even if it isn't always sharp
  • New 'Live Focus' portrait filters like Color Point are fun to use  

The Samsung S10 Plus, like the windows p not working S10, includes a windows p not working robust triple-lens rear camera array, comprising windows p not working a 12MP regular lens, windows p not working a 12MP optically zoomed windows p not working telephoto lens, and new 16MP windows p not working ultra-wide lens.

Samsung’s dual-aperture lens allowed us to capture windows p not working vibrant-looking photos windows p not working and even windows p not working fairly good windows p not working low-light pictures. The windows p not working quality windows p not working isn’t always consistent (advice: take lots windows p not working of the same photo), and it windows p not working lacks windows p not working something like the Google windows p not working Pixel 3's dedicated windows p not working long-exposure windows p not working Night Vision mode.

It ranks windows p not working among windows p not working the best camera phones for 2019 because windows p not working it takes photos windows p not working with bright, windows p not working punchy colors. iPhone photos windows p not working look rather muted compared to windows p not working the S10 Plus. windows p not working Side-by-side with windows p not working the windows p not working Pixel 3, though, windows p not working its low-light windows p not working capabilities are windows p not working good, but not the best. windows p not working In particular, it tends to denoise nighttime windows p not working images, almost smoothing skin people's faces windows p not working in an effort windows p not working to windows p not working reduce low-light graininess.

Samsung's windows p not working ultra-wide lens does something Google can't do: windows p not working capture photos with a 123--degree field of windows p not working view. It’s great for cramming windows p not working more into the frame.

When windows p not working you’re posing in front of windows p not working tall buildings and iconic windows p not working statues, whoever’s windows p not working lucky enough to be windows p not working taking your picture won’t be forced to windows p not working cross the street windows p not working in order windows p not working to do so. Your welcome, kind photo-taking windows p not working stranger.

Be windows p not working warned: windows p not working the windows p not working wide angle windows p not working does windows p not working have a windows p not working fisheye effect, distorting people and windows p not working objects at the edges of shots, appearing windows p not working stretched compared windows p not working to those windows p not working in windows p not working the middle. This windows p not working lens is stunning for sweeping landscape photos windows p not working and group windows p not working shots in windows p not working which people are tightly windows p not working packed into windows p not working the center of the frame windows p not working to avoid windows p not working the barrel-like windows p not working warping.

Live windows p not working Focus windows p not working is more windows p not working fun windows p not working with the Galaxy S10 Plus, windows p not working with windows p not working Samsung’s portrait mode now offering a few different windows p not working options. There’s still the standard background windows p not working blur windows p not working effect windows p not working – the amount of which can be easily windows p not working toggled with an windows p not working on-screen slide – but there are now windows p not working three other options.

Spin and Zoom offer windows p not working different blur effects for a more windows p not working arty shot, but it’s windows p not working the final windows p not working option, windows p not working Color Point, which windows p not working is our favorite. windows p not working This keeps your windows p not working subject in windows p not working the windows p not working foreground in color, windows p not working while turning the background windows p not working black and white.

It works extremely windows p not working well, and the windows p not working results are windows p not working striking – and windows p not working you can also windows p not working select windows p not working this option windows p not working when using the front-facing cameras, for windows p not working striking selfies that allow you to windows p not working ‘pop’ in color while the background is windows p not working turned mono.

10MP and 8MP front-facing cameras

Image 2 of 2

The front-facing windows p not working cameras are 10MP windows p not working and 8MP, with the latter coming into play windows p not working for enhancing depth. This allows for better windows p not working Live Focus portrait photos, and windows p not working it’s exclusive to the S10 Plus windows p not working variant of windows p not working Samsung’s new windows p not working phones. 

Images windows p not working from the front windows p not working cameras look good windows p not working in everything but low windows p not working light, where windows p not working things become windows p not working soft-looking windows p not working as the windows p not working software windows p not working attempts to aggressively smooth out the windows p not working noise, windows p not working although windows p not working of windows p not working course this is an issue that isn't limited windows p not working to Samsung phones.

Do windows p not working you windows p not working really windows p not working need a windows p not working dual-selfie camera? No. windows p not working The difference windows p not working in between S10 and windows p not working S10 Plus selfie quality windows p not working is windows p not working minimal. It's the windows p not working least convincing upgrade, and the ability to windows p not working take windows p not working closer and windows p not working wider windows p not working zoomed front photos is a software windows p not working trick not limited to the windows p not working Plus.

Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus review

Samsung's fully-loaded, yet easy-to-navigate windows p not working app is where it makes up windows p not working ground next windows p not working to Google's windows p not working more barebones camera app. windows p not working We love returning features, like being able windows p not working quickly flip between windows p not working the main and windows p not working front cameras by swiping up windows p not working on the screen windows p not working – it's like windows p not working a big windows p not working button. Taking a selfie with a windows p not working gesture is windows p not working also windows p not working simple; you open windows p not working your hand and windows p not working then form windows p not working a windows p not working fist, and it'll start a windows p not working countdown timer.

New windows p not working is Scene Optimizer's 10 windows p not working additional categories, windows p not working enabling the AI to tell the difference between windows p not working a windows p not working cat and dog, windows p not working for example, in windows p not working order windows p not working to fine-tune image settings. We found it to windows p not working be smart enough to recognize windows p not working the main subject in a windows p not working busy scene, and brighten things up windows p not working a little windows p not working as appropriate.

Shot Suggestions hints windows p not working at windows p not working how to windows p not working fix windows p not working photos using the phone’s neural processing windows p not working unit (NPU). windows p not working We windows p not working found its real-time tips on leveling shots and windows p not working framing subjects helpful, with an windows p not working on-screen reticle to properly center group windows p not working shots. windows p not working Sure, its suggestions are at times windows p not working way windows p not working off, but for the most part windows p not working it’s a helpful addition to windows p not working the camera windows p not working UI. 

Video quality

Video windows p not working sees windows p not working a healthy amount windows p not working of upgrades in 2019. The S10 windows p not working Plus offers new windows p not working Digital windows p not working Video Stabilization on windows p not working the windows p not working rear windows p not working camera and, for windows p not working the windows p not working first time, HDR10+ recording. 

Samsung windows p not working new stabilization windows p not working technology windows p not working is designed to make your windows p not working Ultra HD video look as windows p not working smooth as footage from an action cam, windows p not working and windows p not working while the handset doesn’t have windows p not working the same windows p not working durability, it rival windows p not working the stabilization of the GoPro windows p not working Hero7 Black. As as close to windows p not working a windows p not working gimbal-like experience using only a windows p not working smartphone, though the tiny DJI windows p not working Osmo Pocket windows p not working remains windows p not working our windows p not working favorite for silky smooth crane-esque video.

HDR10+ windows p not working video recording is windows p not working a windows p not working big upgrade because Samsung's prior windows p not working phones lacked the ability to record support windows p not working HDR. When turned on, windows p not working we found HDR10+ kept scenes windows p not working from overexposing windows p not working care of additional windows p not working contrast, but it also turned windows p not working off saving to the windows p not working newer HEVC windows p not working format, windows p not working which produces smaller file sizes. windows p not working HDR10+ windows p not working is tagged with a 'Labs' label, so windows p not working it seems to be a work in windows p not working progress.

Battery

  • More than all-day battery life with the default Full HD resolution
  • The 4,100mAh battery capacity is the largest in a Galaxy S phone
  • Samsung's fast charging is slower than rivals, but still beats Apple

The windows p not working Samsung windows p not working Galaxy S10 Plus battery hits windows p not working a windows p not working new high for the S series windows p not working with a windows p not working 4,100mAh windows p not working capacity. windows p not working Last windows p not working year’s S9 Plus was windows p not working above average for Android flagships, windows p not working delivering all-day windows p not working battery life from its 3,500mAh unit, but windows p not working the S10 windows p not working Plus performed better for windows p not working us in our tests.  

Samsung still claims "all-day battery life windows p not working or windows p not working a bit more", windows p not working maybe because of the bigger windows p not working screen here, or maybe windows p not working just to windows p not working play it windows p not working safe. windows p not working With moderate use – a windows p not working couple of windows p not working hours of Spotify streaming, a healthy amount windows p not working of windows p not working messaging windows p not working and social windows p not working media, an hour windows p not working or two of Netflix and a windows p not working smattering windows p not working of gaming – we found it windows p not working easy to end the night with an windows p not working impressive windows p not working 10% to 30% battery left.

Start enabling windows p not working some of the additional features on the Galaxy windows p not working S10 Plus and the battery will windows p not working of course take a hit, namely windows p not working the always-on display  and changing Full windows p not working HD+ windows p not working to QHD+.

The Galaxy S10 windows p not working Plus does come with a windows p not working host of power saving modes windows p not working with the most aggressive - maximum windows p not working power saving - locking down the interface windows p not working to just a few windows p not working key apps (of your windows p not working choosing), ensuring you still get hours from you windows p not working final few percent.

Samsung Wireless PowerShare in action. Image Credit: TechRadar

Wireless PowerShare

  • 'Wireless Power Share' makes phone a Qi-charging pad
  • It's doesn't charge other devices fast, but can be a lifesaver
  • Your friends may like this feature better than you do

Samsung’s new Wireless windows p not working PowerShare windows p not working feature turns the windows p not working back of the S10 windows p not working Plus windows p not working into a big Qi windows p not working charging mat, windows p not working which is great if you’re windows p not working feeling windows p not working generous when your friend runs low windows p not working on windows p not working battery windows p not working and feel comfortable sparing some of your windows p not working hefty windows p not working 4,1000mAh windows p not working capacity. 

It worked flawlessly during windows p not working our tests, enabling us to charge windows p not working the Galaxy Buds in their case when windows p not working we windows p not working placed them on the windows p not working lower third of the back of windows p not working the phone.

Samsung hasn’t showed favoritism windows p not working here either: windows p not working any Qi windows p not working charging phone worked in windows p not working our tests, including the windows p not working iPhone XS Max. We used windows p not working this feature more than we thought windows p not working we might during our time at windows p not working MWC 2019 windows p not working – windows p not working and we became quite popular.

Knowing windows p not working that PowerShare turns off when your phone windows p not working drops down to 30% battery life is windows p not working comforting – as is windows p not working realizing that your iPhone XS-owning friend windows p not working has windows p not working a 2,658mAh capacity for windows p not working the price of windows p not working your S10 Plus.

Reverse windows p not working wireless charging is windows p not working found windows p not working in windows p not working the windows p not working Huawei windows p not working Mate windows p not working 20 Pro, but Samsung makes windows p not working it much easier to access windows p not working Wireless windows p not working PowerShare windows p not working via the quick windows p not working settings menu in windows p not working the notification shade, whereas Huawei windows p not working buries windows p not working its feature in a windows p not working forest windows p not working of settings submenus.

Samsung Galaxy S10

If you want all the flagship features of the Galaxy S10 Plus in a more manageable form factor and slightly cheaper price, the Samsung Galaxy S10 is the answer.

Its smaller 6.1-inch display still packs a QHD+ resolution, although there's just a single punch-hole camera embedded into it.

You still get the same three rear cameras, Wireless PowerShare feature and in-display fingerprint scanner - plus plenty of power and storage under the hood.

Samsung Galaxy S10e

For the first time in a number of years Samsung is offering a more affordable version of its S-Series flagship, and the Galaxy S10e is set to go up against Apple's third wheel - the iPhone XR.

The S10e packs a 5.8-inch Full HD display, two rear cameras and the same powerful chipset at its larger siblings.

There's no curved edges to the display however, and the fingerprint scanner is located on the side, rather than under the screen.

Huawei Mate 20 Pro

If it's a big screen, plenty of power and multiple, high-performing rear cameras you're after, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro should be a serious consideration.

There's a similarly massive 6.39-inch QHD+ display in play here, plus a heap of power under the hood and a trio of versatile cameras on its rear. Plus there's an in-display fingerprint scanner, although its notch is larger than the S10 Plus.

The real kicker here though is the price. As the Mate 20 Pro is now six months old, its price has dropped and it can now be picked up for much less than the Galaxy S10 Plus.
