The Galaxy S10e is the cheapest of Samsung's 2019 Galaxy S10 class -- and it just might be the best buy of the lot.


The good

  • Small size makes it easy to hold
  • Infinity O design looks great
  • Headphone jack
  • Powerful for a small phone
  • Supports expandable storage.

The bad

  • Battery life isn't great
  • Side-mounted fingerprint sensor can be tricky to hit
  • Bixby button is an annoyance


One of the most common questions we hear from consumers is around why you just can't get a good, powerful but above all small smartphone any more.

Sure, there's the Pixel 3 (and now the Pixel 3a), but beyond Google's in-house efforts there's really not that many options. Samsung's Galaxy S10e joins the crowd of smaller-sized handsets, providing plenty of power and a generally decent camera, although like its larger siblings, battery stamina is a genuine concern.

Design

  • Bright and clear 5.8-inch display
  • Single hole-punch front camera
  • Side-mounted fingerprint sensor
  • Samsung persists with the Bixby button

Camera

  • 16MP/12MP Dual-camera array at the rear is decent, but not great

Performance

  • Exynos 9820 gives great performance for such a small phone
  • Expandable storage gives it flexibility
  • One UI launcher is great

Battery life

  • 3,100mAh battery disappoints
  • Supports fast charging and wireless charging

Verdict

  • The battery life isn't great, but this is a good option if you want a smaller but still powerful handset.
