The Galaxy S10 5G has all the hallmarks of a range-topping Samsung. A big, bright screen, sleek design, solid performance and excellent battery life - the best of any of Samsung’s S10 variants. The rear camera is also very good and Samsung’s One UI is great, as long as you’re happy using navigation buttons as the swipe gestures are hard to use on this size of phone. It is massive and expensive, meaning only big-phone lovers are going to want to even try and use it.

A strong premiere for the new mobile standard

The Galaxy S10 5G is a great choice if you are in the market for a phablet even when discounting its 5G capabilities. However, it looks mighty pricy next to its S10 siblings, while its few but glaring shortcomings may have people looking elsewhere.

As of July 2019, we don’t recommend a 5G contract given the high cost, sparse coverage and minor speed gains. Despite this, the Galaxy S10 5G is an incredible phone with class-leading design, cameras and display. One UI is Samsung’s best ever interpretation of Android, the 4500mAh battery is generous and thanks to the bezel-less design this 6.7in phone isn’t too huge.

A bigger, better S10 Plus

from Ausdroid

If you buy the S10 5G it will give you less congested network access if you’re in a Telstra 5G coverage area during the next year or two.  Realistically that’s around the core of Australia’s major cities. You won’t be seeing much 5G out on the road between Australia’s urban centres anytime soon.

Samsung’s move to 4K default resolution for video, and a beneficial switch to using the telephoto camera for bokeh effects in portrait mode, give the 5G version a 3-point score bump to put it at the very top of all our tested mobile devices. The S10 5G also gets to claim the title of being the first smartphone to score 100 points for video. Buyers of the 5G version of the S10 may be primarily interested in its next-generation connectivity, but will get improvements to photos and videos as an additional benefit.

The Inquirer

The flagships' flagship

from The Inquirer

With no firm word on exact specs or access to a working 5G network, it's difficult to judge the Galaxy S10 5G on its key feature. 5G aside, the S10 5G is the real top dog of the S10 family. The camera array, display, and design are expectedly very good, as has been the case with many Galaxy phones.
