The Galaxy M10 is a competitive offering from Samsung under Rs 10,000 price bracket. While it ticks most checkboxes that consumers look for in this price segment, Samsung has missed one basic feature of fingerprint security in M10. Other than that, the only problem I felt with the phone is its slow face unlock feature, but then phone’s overall performance makes up for the little flaw.

The excellent battery life is a result of two big letdowns  the HD+ resolution screen and the dated SoC. While the shape and dimensions of the screen give this phone its modern look, the quality isn't quite as good as we'd have liked. Furthermore, performance on this device is below average, and the camera doesn't achieve a lot beyond its key feature of ultra-wide-angle photography.

Finally a budget Galaxy to take on Chinese smartphones

from Gizbot

Both the Galaxy M10 and the Galaxy M20 offers some impressive set of specifications and features which makes them a good rival against the other affordable smartphones such as the Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro, Redmi Note 6 Pro, ZenFone Max Pro M2, and others. Both the devices are a sweet deal for the price range they are selling for.
