The Galaxy S10e is the cheapest of Samsung's 2019 Galaxy S10 class -- and it just might be the best buy of the lot.
- Small size makes it easy to hold
- Infinity O design looks great
- Headphone jack
- Powerful for a small phone
- Supports expandable storage.
- 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.
- Bright and clear 5.8-inch display
- Single hole-punch front camera
- Side-mounted fingerprint sensor
- Samsung persists with the Bixby button
- 16MP/12MP Dual-camera array at the rear is decent, but not great
- Exynos 9820 gives great performance for such a small phone
- Expandable storage gives it flexibility
- One UI launcher is great
- 3,100mAh battery disappoints
- Supports fast charging and wireless charging
- The battery life isn't great, but this is a good option if you want a smaller but still powerful handset.
