Samsung M10 Brief Review and Pros Cons:

We don't remember the last time we recommended a Samsung phone under 10000 to our users. Samsung is trying to change that and the Samsung Galaxy M10 and M20 look like a step in that direction. The Samsung Galaxy M10 is priced at around 8000 to 9000 Rs. and comes with a fresh design and a large 6.22-inch Infinity V display. Infinity V is just a fancy name for the small notch displays that we are seeing these days.

The front camera is placed inside the notch and the earpiece is above the notch. The bezels all around are thin but the chin does take a good amount of space at the bottom. The display resolution is just HD 720p so it is not that sharp. Color accuracy isn't great either. The phone has a plastic unibody design with curved edges. The phone feels light because of the plastic but it doesn't feel cheap. We haven't done a bend test so we don't know how strong it is. Overall, this is the best-looking smartphone under 10000 from Samsung.

There is no fingerprint sensor on the phone so face lock or pin lock are the only ways to make your phone secure. The face unlock is slow and takes 2-3 seconds sometimes which is irritating. Most people will end up using pin lock because of that. The battery inside the phone is 3400 mAh and the charger that comes with the phone is 5V 1A charger. The battery is not big but because of low-resolution display and efficient processor, the battery backup is great. The phone will last for a day easily with medium to heavy usage. The charging is slow because of the 1A charger. It takes more than 3 hours to fully charge the device from 0 to 100%.

The Samsung M10 is powered by Exynos 7870 chipset which first came out in 2016. It not a powerful chipset and cannot compete with Snapdragon 625 or 450. There are 2 variants of M10: 2GB RAM and 16GB storage and 3GB RAM and 32GB storage. Because of the average processor, the multitasking isn't smooth and you will see some lag even on the 3GB RAM variant. Samsung M10 is not suitable for games like PUBG. For normal users who need a phone for social media apps and calling, Samsung M10 is a good device.

The Samsung M10 runs on Samsungs Experience UI which is a skin based on Android 8.1 Oreo. There is a good amount of bloatware. The UI is clean and easy to use though. The performance of M10 on benchmarks is average as well. It scores less than 50000 on Antutu benchmarks. 

On the camera side, we have a surprise from Samsung. The rear camera is a dual setup of 13MP (f/1.9) + 5MP (f/2.2 ultra-wide). While most companies just throw in a useless 2MP depth sensor as a secondary camera, Samsung has added an ultra wide angle lens which can be very useful. The primary sensor is also a good one and has an f/1.9 aperture which helps in low light shots. The camera on the front is a 5MP f/2.0 sensor. Both front and rear camera performance are decent for an under 10000 smartphone. The pictures taken in daylight look nice with good amount of details. The portrait mode pictures also look decent. 

The phone comes with a headphone jack and a triple slot sim tray so you can use 2 VOLTE sims with a MicroSD card. Dedicated sim slot is a really good option when you are buying phones with 16GB or 32GB of storage. 

Overall, Samsung M10 is a good value for money smartphone. Finally, Samsung has launched a smartphone which we can recommend to our users. The multitasking and gaming aren't great though. So if your usage is social media apps, taking pictures, watching videos and calling, Samsung M10 is a good phone under 10000. It is available in Blue and Black color. The blue color is our favorite color of M10 and go for the 3GB 32GB storage as the price difference is just Rs. 1000. If you need more power then Realme 2 and Redmi Y2 are good options at a similar price.

Should you buy Samsung M10?

At a price of Rs. 8000 to 9000, Samsung has launched a nice looking smartphone with a large 6.22 inch display. It is a great looking phone with decent performance. The battery backup is excellent but the charging is slow. If you like Samsung and need a phone under 10000, then M10 is the best you can get. If you can go for other brands then Realme 2 should be your choice which comes with Snapdragon 450.
