Samsung Galaxy S10E review: Overlooking Samsung’s cheapest phone would be a mistake
This value-buy powerhouse does a lot right and very little wrong.

It’s been about two months since I reviewed the Galaxy S10E, Samsung’s best-value buy among the S10 phones, and I’m still just as sold. While it may seem downright boring compared to the 6.7-inch, quad-camera S10 5G or the bendable Galaxy Fold. the S10E is also much more of a sure thing, and reliability is a pretty universally chart-topping trait when it comes to buying a new phone. The S10 5G will only be as fast as its supporting networks, and. well, you know all about the Galaxy Fold’s screen issues.
Samsung Galaxy S10E
A dream come true for value shoppers who love small phones. The Galaxy S10E shares the S10’s core camera and Snapdragon 855 chipset, so photos and speed are excellent. Battery life and wireless power sharing are also spot-on. Its fingerprint reader and flat screen solve minor problems with the pricier S10 and S10 Plus.
Lefties and people with small hands may find the fingerprint reader placement a tad inconvenient. The indented shape makes taking screenshots feel odd.
The Bottom Line
The Galaxy S10E is a terrific value for a compact, powerhouse phone, although it can’t beat the OnePlus 6T’s 550 price.
The best thing about the Galaxy S10E is that it’s a complete and tidy package that shares the same core features as the 1,000 Galaxy S10 Plus. but for a much lower sum. Starting at 750, £669 and AU1,199, the Galaxy S10E is a high-value home run with very few flaws. In fact, two Galaxy S10E “trade-offs” might actually solve potential problems you might have with the larger Galaxy S10 Plus. The “E” may stand for “Essential”, but it also stands for “Excellence.”
To dig a little deeper, the S10E uses the same Android Pie interface with Samsung’s One UI on top and best-in-show Snapdragon 855 chipset inside. The screen is great, battery life is very strong, and you can use the phone to wirelessly charge Qi-enabled devices. You can fling as much water and dust on it as any other Galaxy S10 phone.
Galaxy S10E is the dynamite, maverick Galaxy S10
There are two main differences. First, the screen is flat, not curved. While this gives it a slightly less immersive look, it also means you may have an easier time tapping the cursor at the beginning of a text field. For me, that often falls on the curve, which can be a no-man’s land for recognizing taps. Or if you’re like my mom, a flat screen and straighter sides may make the S10E easier to hold. Then there are people like my brother: a no-nonsense man who just wants a phone, dammit, and to hell with the frills.
Another “trade-off” that might turn out to be a benefit is that there’s no in-screen ultrasonic fingerprint reader like the Galaxy S10, S10 Plus and S10 5G have. Instead, the fingerprint scanner is a capacitive-style pad that’s integrated into the power button. It’s actually more accurate than the in-screen reader.
A price war is the Galaxy S10E’s biggest threat. It’s one that doesn’t stem from the iPhone XR. which costs the same and has fewer goodies (like smaller storage capacity). It’s the OnePlus 6T that comes in at 550, £499 (or about AU775) that’s the bigger threat.- this was also our top value phone for 2018. Google is also rumored to release a cheaper Pixel 3 Lite this spring, which could spell trouble for the S10E if it comes in closer to the 6T’s price.
The takeaway here is that the Galaxy S10E is a little-but-mighty powerhouse that’s worth the price. If you don’t need a 6.4-inch screen and a telephoto lens, this is the Galaxy S10 to get.
Read on for everything that’s different about the Galaxy S10E, including the fingerprint sensor, cameras and battery life. Skip to the end for a buying guide comparison with other phones, and a full specs comparison.
Galaxy S10E versus the Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus
Don’t be tempted to think of the S10E as the runt of the litter. It’s the smallest and least adorned, but it’s a strong phone in its own right. Major differences come down to the size, the number of cameras, the screen resolution and the battery and storage capacities.
The Galaxy S10E has 128GB or 256GB storage options, for example, while the S10 Plus tops out at an astonishing 1TB. Most people on the planet don’t really need 1TB of storage. 128GB with a 512GB microSD option is a generous starting amount for most. And while the 3,100-mAh battery sounds smaller than the S10 Plus’ 4,100-mAh battery, it’ll still last you all day. It ran 17 hours in our looping video drain test. That’s not a lot of corner-cutting.
This mini comparison shows the major differences:
Goldilocks design and size are just right
You’ve heard me and maybe others refer to the Galaxy S10E as a “small” phone, but this is no mini device like the 3.3-inch Palm. It’s about the same size and dimensions as an iPhone XS. but it is significantly smaller than the Galaxy S10 Plus. I called it adorably petite in comparison, but with a 5.8-inch screen, there’s nothing shrunken about it.
I have relatively small hands, so for me the S10E is pretty much perfect. It’s a slick, slippery phone and while it has scudded off quite a few tabletops, the straight sides and smaller frame make it feel more secure in my hand than the larger S10 Plus. I’d recommend a case for most people.
Typing: The 5.8-inch screen is anything but small, though typing will feel more compact than on a larger screen. Coming from the Galaxy S10 Plus’ 6.4-inch display, the S10E’s digital keyboard feels “small,” but if you’re coming from a phone with a similar-size display, you won’t notice much difference, if any.
Taking photos one-handed: For my smaller hands especially, the Galaxy S10E was a relief to use when snapping photos. I tend to hold the S10 Plus steady with two hands and then quickly dart in a finger to FOCUS when autofocus isn’t reading my mind. Sometimes I have to use the tip of my nose. I don’t have to tell you how embarrassing it is to peck your phone screen like a bird, but I know I can’t be the only person to do this.
The S10E is small enough to hold steady with one hand and FOCUS with the other, if need be. Samsung’s Shot Suggestions software also attempts to make things easier for you by automatically taking a photo when you line up the shot along a suggested guideline.
The flat screen isn’t actually a step back
I love the more immersive look of the other Galaxy S10s’ curved sides, but so far the flat screen is just fine. And you still get use of the Edge screen tab, which can serve as a speed dial for opening your favorite apps and contacts from any screen. I use this daily to open apps like Google Drive and Google Keep notes.
The screen’s resolution and pixel density are the lowest of all the S10 phones (438 ppi compared to 550 ppi on the Galaxy S10 and 522 ppi on the S10 Plus), but right out of the box, I was hard-pressed to tell the difference with the phones side by side on max brightness. That’s because screen resolution on the S10 Plus is lower by default, a setting that most people don’t change right away. I could still read just fine outside.
Comparing the S10E and S10 Plus screens out of the box, I scrolled through websites, watched a downloaded Netflix video and zoomed in on HD photos. If anything, blues are a little brighter on the S10 Plus, and a bit darker on the S10E. Yellows and reds are warmer and more saturated on the S10E. You won’t lose appreciable quality by going with the S10E.
Note that the S10E has Gorilla Glass 5 on the front, while the other S10 phones use a slightly tougher Gorilla Glass 6 (they all use Gorilla Glass 5 on the back). If you’re concerned about drops, a glass screen protector is a Smart play. The Galaxy S10 phones all come with a thicker plastic film adhered to the screen. Samsung says this is a screen protector worth 30, but it wasn’t for me, so I took it off.
A fingerprint scanner in the power button proves you don’t ‘need’ ultrasonic
The ultrasonic fingerprint reader in the other Galaxy S10 phones is supposed to be a huge advantage. It’s meant to be faster, more secure and work through water and grease. But the Galaxy S10 Plus’ in-screen fingerprint scanner hasn’t lived up to the promise. Fingerprint recognition is hit or miss, and it takes a beat to unlock the phone. There are definitely limitations for wet and greasy fingers, and that’s after two software updates. (Hopefully a future update will fix this.)
All of this is to say that the S10E’s capacitive fingerprint sensor integrated into the power button is actually turning out be an advantage. This is actually one of my favorite places for a fingerprint reader because, for right-handed people at least, it falls in a natural place that’s easy to reach and requires little guesswork. Samsung gives you the option to unlock the phone with a soft touch, rather than making you press down on the button, which spares some repetitive stress.
My one complaint is that the placement feels unusually high, at least for my grip. I’d be happier if it moved down a quarter of an inch so I don’t have to scoot my grip up to unlock.
But unlocking the phone isn’t the only thing you use the fingerprint scanner for. I also paid close attention to three more scenarios.
Capturing a screenshot: This felt awkward. The power-and-fingerprint button doesn’t stick out like the volume rocker or Bixby button on the other spine. It indents so it’s more like a trough, and that means you have to work harder to push in the power button while also pressing the Volume Down key to take a screenshot. It’s hard to explain, but the buttons feel different, and so the action feels uneven and uncertain, like maybe you’re not doing it right. I did do it right each time, but probably pushed harder on the fingerprint scanner than I needed to, just to make sure.
Launching the camera app: One of my most-used features is double-tapping the power button to launch the camera app for a quick photo. Once again, since the power button inverts, you have to work just a little harder to launch the camera app than when you’re mashing down a button that sticks out from the phone’s side. So far, though, I haven’t missed a shot because of it. Then again, I’ve mostly been taking photos of inanimate objects and patient people.
Using Samsung Pay and Google Pay: I use mobile payments regularly, particularly Samsung Pay. So this morning I fired it up on the Galaxy S10E to see if the placement of the fingerprint reader helps or hurts. In this case, I prefer tapping the S10 Plus’ in-screen fingerprint reader because it’s easier to reach. But I wouldn’t say I had a problem authenticating my thumbprint on the S10E.- I just had to reach up a bit farther. For me, they both beat the Galaxy S9 ‘s capacitive fingerprint reader on the back, which requires you to blindly find the reader in order to make a mobile payment. I find it’s easier to miss what you can’t see.
Camera quality is just as good as the Galaxy S10 Plus
Samsung did a really Smart thing in giving the S10E the same main cameras as the S10 and S10 Plus on the back and front. Here’s what you get:
- Main 12-megapixel rear camera with OIS, dual-aperture lens (f2.4, f1.5)
- 16-megapixel wide-angle camera
- 10-megapixel front-facing camera
You won’t get the 12-megapixel telephoto lens or second 8-megapixel selfie lens on the Galaxy S10 Plus, but you can still switch among two different lens views for each camera, and take Live Focus portrait shots for that bokeh-style depth effect.
Because they share the same cameras, image quality is the same as the Galaxy S10 Plus’. There’s no telephoto lens for a quick 2x closeup, and perhaps selfies won’t be as nuanced. But the pictures I’ve taken indoors and outdoors are the same high quality I expect, and the main camera should perform identically in low-light mode.
One note on low-light shots: None of the Galaxy S10 phones has a standalone low-light mode like the Pixel 3 and Huawei Mate 20. While I do think that hurts the S10 Plus, because that’s a premium 1,000 device, it’s not a feature I would necessarily expect on a 750 handset. Of course, it would be amazing if the S10E did have that, but with the S10 Plus facing stiff high-end competition, not having that exceptional camera mode feels much more immediate.
Battery life is good, speed’s great
The Galaxy S10E has a 3,100-mAh battery, so you’d expect it to last fewer hours than the S10 and S10 Plus, with their 3,400- and 4,100-mAh batteries, respectively. No surprises here. The S10E still ran for 17 hours in our looping video-drain battery test (on airplane mode), compared to 21 hours for the larger Galaxy S10 Plus. This is still a strong result. It’s not as long-lasting as the iPhone XR (20 hours) but it’s about the same as the OnePlus 6T.
Based on my real-world observation, the S10E will take you from morning until night, though you will want to charge it up once a day. As always, you’ll see more significant drain when you use the phone to stream music and movies, navigate somewhere and keep the screen on for long periods of time. Batteries also become less efficient over the lifetime of your phone, which is why out-of-the-box battery life is important. As with any phone, it won’t get better from here.
I also ran our usual performance tests on the S10E, which includes Geekbench 4 and 3DMark Ice Storm Unlimited and Slingshot Unlimited. Since the S10E shares the same Snapdragon 855 processor as my S10 Plus review unit, the benchmark speeds are all within striking distance of each other. Ditto real-world performance so far. Note that S10 phones in some regions use Samsung’s Exynos chipset, which might make a slight difference in operational speeds.
Galaxy S10E vs. Galaxy S9, S10, iPhone XR and OnePlus 6T
Here’s how the S10E measures up against the competition.
Versus the Galaxy S9
Spec for spec, the S10E is better than the Galaxy S9 in every way, for less than the S9’s initial starting price. But there’s still not a large enough design and performance boost for me to recommend an upgrade. That said, if you get a great trade-in or resale deal that can bridge some of the difference, you won’t be sorry.
Versus the Galaxy S10
Is it worth 150 to get a slightly larger screen, battery and additional telephoto camera lens? Meh. The standard Galaxy S10 has the unenviable position of being the monkey in the middle of two other S10s with clearly defined roles. If you prefer a slightly larger screen (6.1 inches versus 5.8) and there’s an unbeatable offer from your carrier or a retail store, by all means upgrade to the Galaxy S10.
Versus the iPhone XR
Once you get past the Android-versus- iOS debate, these two “value” phones duke it out for the upper hand. The XR has a larger, 6.1 screen and longer battery life (19 hours in our video drain test). The S10E has a sharper screen and doubles your starting storage. There’s an expandable storage option too. Both charge wirelessly, but only the S10E can charge another device. You’ll have to decide whether you prefer Face ID or a fingerprint scanner for biometrics. Our camera shootout is in the works.
Versus the OnePlus 6T
If you’re looking for the cheapest premium phone you can buy, the S10E falls short of the OnePlus 6T’s 550 starting price. The specs match up pretty well, too, though you have a slightly faster processor on the S10E, more camera flexibility and better low light quality, too. The S10E also gives you more storage through its microSD card slot, and works with more carriers across the world. For example, the OnePlus 6T only sells with T-Mobile in the US, and doesn’t sell in Australia.

Samsung Galaxy S10e: una cámara menos para una variante igual de potente, pero más asequible y compacta
En los últimos años Samsung ha presentado sus terminales de gama alta por pares, pero en esta ocasión al Galaxy S10 y al Galaxy S10 les acompañan dos modelos llamativos. El S10 5G lo es por ese soporte de las redes 5G, pero puede que la verdadera sorpresa de la industria esté en el Samsung Galaxy S10e.
Este es un modelo que hace algunos sacrificios en tamaño y prestaciones: nos deshacemos del sensor “tele” y del lector de huella bajo la pantalla, pero en casi todo lo demás este modelo comparte las virtudes de sus hermanos mayores, y eso podría acabar convirtiéndolo en todo un acierto por parte de Samsung.

Un diseño compacto y plano
Estamos ante el “pequeño” de la familia: las 5,8 pulgadas que hace unos años hubieran disparado las dimensiones de otros diseños quedan muy bien acotadas por ese diseño sin marcos que vuelve a usar el agujero (uno solo en este caso) en pantalla para la cámara frontal. El marco desaparece, pero aún tenemos un ligero marco inferior.
Esas dimensiones son precisamente uno de los elementos diferenciales de una variante que además se desmarca de una de las señas de identidad de Samsung. La pantalla curva desaparece en el Galaxy S10e para convertirse en una pantalla plana.
Tampoco contamos con el sensor de huella bajo la pantalla, y aquí Samsung toma una decisión peculiar al situar el sensor de huella capacitivo no en la parte trasera como sería habitual, sino en el lateral, como ha hecho Sony en repetidas ocasiones. La delgadez del S10e (7,9 mm) hace que el espacio reservado para ese sensor sea algo escaso, pero habrá que ver si en las pruebas eso basta para ofrecer una buena experiencia de usuario.
Hay también cambios en la orientación de las cámaras traseras que se han colocado en sentido horizontal y que ocupan lógicamente menos espacio que en el resto de modelos. Este Galaxy S10e también tiene un color exclusivo para él solo: el “Canary Yellow”, un amarillo muy vivo y alegre que desde luego llama la atención.
Pese a los sacrificios esto sigue siendo un S10, tenga apellido o no
Las concesiones que Samsung ha hecho con esta variante asequible son ciertamente excusables. Para empezar, la más relevante: volvemos a la cámara dual de modelos pasados en lugar de la cámara triple que forma parte del S10 y el S10.
Concretamente desaparece el teleobjetivo, una ausencia sensible pero que no tiene por qué tener un impacto importante en el rendimiento del apartado fotográfico salvo en esa opción del zoom óptico.
El otro sacrificio lo vemos en la pantalla, cuya resolución se reduce ligeramente. No es tampoco un sacrificio dramático ya que la diagonal de pantalla no es tan grande, pero además eso contribuirá a mejorar la autonomía. Precisamente la batería se ve algo condicionada por la reducción de dimensiones, y en este modelo concreto tenemos una capacidad de 3.100 mAh.
Por lo demás estamos ante un terminal que se beneficia del mismo procesador (en nuestra región, el Exynos 9820) que sus hermanos mayores, y que también cuenta con reconocimiento facial, carga rápida, Wireless PowerShare y capacidades de almacenamiento: nos olvidamos de los 64 GB de partida de anteriores y damos el salto a una capacidad base de 128 GB.
Nos encontramos por tanto con un modelo muy interesante pese a esos pequeños recortes tanto en tamaño como en prestaciones, y puede que Samsung haya tenido una gran idea con un modelo que conserva buena parte de las virtudes de sus hermanos mayores.
