Starting March 1, Samsung’s new flagships are already being sold in Russia: the regular Galaxy S10, the enlarged S10 , as well as the relatively inexpensive S10e.
On the one hand, all devices in the new line are very similar. On the other hand, they differ in price and feature set. We decided to find out which one is right for you.
Screens: Galaxy S10 and S10 differ only in size
Screens for every taste
Samsung uses technology displays in the Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10 and S10e Super AMOLED. They support the Always-on display function, which makes it possible to display important information on the screen even in an inactive state.
The screens of the new flagships have a marketing name, Dynamic amoled.
The company says these are the most innovative displays ever installed on mobile devices. No wonder, because she herself produces them.
Prior to the Galaxy S10 line, the company was against any cutouts in the flagship screens. This compares favorably with its competitors. But now every device has front hole, which is cut out by a laser.
The screens of the Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10 and S10e are called frameless. At the same time, an asymmetrically large lower frame or “chin” immediately catches your eye. It is a pity, even Samsung could not cope with it.
Galaxy S10 with a 6.4-inch screen
Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10 and S10e Screens differ in size and resolution.
The S10 has a 6.1-inch screen curved on both sides with a resolution of 2960 × 1440 pixels and a density of 550 PPI.
The S10 has a 6.4-inch screen curved on both sides with a resolution of 2960 × 1440 pixels and a density of 522 PPI.
The S10e has a flat 5.8-inch screen with a resolution of 2280 × 1080 pixels and a density of 438 PPI.
The latter also wider scope, which put it in place of the iPhone XR next to the iPhone Xs.
Output: S10 and S10 screens differ only in size, s10e has wider frames and lower resolution.
Cameras: 3, 4 and 5 cameras for S10e, S10 and s10 , respectively
The Galaxy S10 and S10e have the same front cameras. Each received a single module with a resolution of 10 MP, autofocus, shooting in 4K and f / 1.9 aperture.
For them, in the upper right corner of each of these smartphones there is small round neckline.
In addition to such a module, the Galaxy S10 received a special 8 MP portrait lens. It measures the depth of space to take pictures with blurring the background.
This smartphone in the upper right corner is not round, but oval neckline, in which two holes fit.
It’s good that the company managed to keep the sensor layer above the cameras, so the devices respond to gestures on it.
A whole set of main cameras
Galaxy S10 and S10 three main cameras.
The first 12 MP module with an adjustable f / 1.5–2.4 aperture, it is wide-angle with a viewing angle of 77 degrees.
The second module is 16 MP with an aperture of f / 2.2, it is super wide-angle with a view of 123 degrees.
The third 12 MP module is a telephoto camera that is needed to simulate optical zoom and create portrait shots.
Galaxy S10e no telephoto, other cameras are no different.
Output: The S10e does not have a telephoto for optical zoom and portraits, but the S10 has an additional front camera for blurring the background on the selfie.

Biometrics: S10e did not receive a finger scanner under the screen
Fingerprint scanner below the screen
The entire Galaxy S10 line can recognize you in person using the front camera. However, this authentication method can hardly be called secure, and it is not so difficult to deceive.
To maximize the protection of data on your device, it is best to use a fingerprint scanner.
On the Galaxy S10 and S10 , the fingerprint scanner works with ultrasound. It is at the bottom under the screen and should work even if you use it with dirty hands.
Sorry, but the S10e has a more primitive capacitive sensor. He is in on the side smartphone and is actually no different from the one used on the back of the Galaxy S9.
Nevertheless, the S10e has an advantage in this regard. The fact is that the ultrasonic module almost does not work when using protective glasses, so only the film can be glued to the S10 and S10 screens.
Output: S10 and S10 a finger scanner under the screen, S10e on the side.
Performance: most differences in drives
S10e in theory may be the fastest
