Samsung’s Flagships namely the S Series and the Note series have been a major premium smartphone market dominator. They simply just jam pack the best display, cameras and overall specs that’s arguably the best for the premium that they ask for. However, these flagships come at a hefty price tag.
It was only with the S3 that Samsung started a skimmed down variant of the main flagship phone i.e. the S3 Mini. Sadly, this continued only till the S5 series with the S5 Mini. Apple, on the other hand, disrupted the market with the introduction of the iPhone XR and a decent price tag considering the standards of 2018.
It was only for so long that Samsung came up with its version of the XR. Enter the S10E of the S10 series. We don’t exactly know what the ‘e’ in the S10e stands for as it's not disclosed by the company, so we're just gonna call it the S10 ‘economical’ edition.
The S10 is not exactly a cheap variant of its elder siblings the S10 and the S10+. In fact, the S10e supports an AMOLED display. Unlike the iPhone XR that compromises on an LCD panel when compared to the Xs and the Xs Max. The AMOLED display on the S10e is no ordinary one like seen on some of the midrange phones from Samsung. In fact, the S10e brings with itself the same crisp Dynamic AMOLED infinity-O display like its elder siblings. At 5.8 inches with a Full HD+ resolution at 2280X1080 and a massive 438 PPI, content on the S10e is definitely gonna be great. On top of all that the S10e’s display is also HDR10+ certified. What does that mean now? It means that the colors on the S10e are going to present can be compared to high-end TV supporting 4K UHD resolutions.
The phone feels great in the hand too as a result of Samsung’s over the year refinement of design and also due to the fact that the phone weighs only a 150gms. Those who don't like big phones are going to love S10E. 5.8-inch display with almost no bezels means a very handy phone which can be easily used with one hand.
On the camera front again the S10e doesn’t cheap out. This is because it shares the same 12MP dual aperture F1.5 primary camera and a massive 16MP F2.2 Ultra-wide Camera with its many expensive siblings. The same pattern is seemed to be followed for the front-facing selfie shooter which is a massive upgrade from prior generations as it is a Dual pixel AF 10MP F1.9 shooter. This means that not only would you be shooting picture perfect selfies but, picture perfect low light selfies too.
Now, unlike other companies that are doing in display camera sensors with LCD display, Samsung takes a different approach. The S10 series is, in fact, one of the very first phones to support an AMOLED panel in-display(hole punch) camera sensor and they are very proud of it. Cause they should be. Why did you ask us? This is because Samsung utilizes precise laser cutting to give that amazing appearance why no other company has been able to achieve.
Apart from these, the rear camera is also capable of shooting up to 4K UHD and 1080p videos at full 60 fps resolution and super slow-mo at 960fps.
The battery is also decent for the screen size and resolution at 3100 mAh coupled with Samsung’s fine-tuning of their newest One UI. On top of that, the S10e also supports the latest fast charge technology from Samsung aka fast charge 2.0. Not only that but following on the footsteps of Huawei the S10e also has Samsung’s version of Huawei’s reverse wireless charging or power share.
Coming to what powers this mini beast is the latest and greatest 7nm Snapdragon 855 or the 8nm Exynos 9820 depending on which country you're making your purchase from. This enables the S10e to be at the peak of its performance when coming to multi-tasking.
For the very first time having an Exynos processor onboard is actually better than having a Snapdragon one. This is because the Exynos 9820 has something called MFC or multi-format codec. Thus, basically means that phones carrying the Exynos 9820 for the very first time can shoot 8K videos at 30 fps.
The other perks that the S10e enjoys from its elder siblings are features like Wi-Fi 6 giving download and upload speeds of up to 1.2Gbps. On the protection front, it comes IP68 dust and water protection. It also has the dual stereo speaker setup with Dolby Atmos Technology.
Now if we were to really nitpick. The things that the s10e doesn’t come with is the much talked about and awaited in display ultrasonic sensor on the S10 and S10+. It also loses the amazing 12MP telephoto sensor that its siblings have.
Apart from these 2 minors nitpicks the S10e pretty much checks every single box. Great build, design, camera, display, processor, and extras. Honestly speaking at the price that the S10e is listed on the Indian website and what it has to offer is actually pretty amazing. We are pretty sure that the users would not be regretting this purchase if they did make one.

S10E is the economical version of Samsung Galaxy S10 and it doesn't cut many corners. The display is gorgeous, the camera performance is excellent, battery backup is decent and the phone can handle all games and apps without any issues. The 5.8 inch size also makes it easy to use with one hand. If you are looking for a phone at around 50000 then S10E is a great option.
