What the Critics Are Saying...


TechRadar

The Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite does a good job in terms of balancing what you want in a phone with what you actually need – Samsung has been smart in cutting out certain features and lowering certain specs to meet what is a very attractive price point.

- David Nield, TechRadar
Fone Arena

While Samsung has a premium flagship lineup, budget lineup, mid-range lineup of smartphones, the company has now tested waters in the affordable flagship category with the launch of Galaxy S10 Lite. The Galaxy S10 Lite aims to offer the same goodness of the Galaxy S10 but at a much lower price.

- Manoj Nagendra, Fone Arena
Tech Advisor

The Galaxy S10 Lite is an odd phone, but mostly in its name. It fits more closely with the S20 range and there’s actually not much ‘Lite’ about it at all. Overall, it ticks most of the boxes for those looking for an affordable Samsung flagship.

- Chris Martin, Tech Advisor
TechENT

You should definitely consider it as it still does give great performance with some of Samsung’s optimisations. If you have the dough to get yourself a new phone, then why not? New phones do give you an oddly satisfying box opening experience and giving you peace of mind that the phone has not tampe...

TrustedReviews

The Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite is a puzzling addition to the range, but it's a good performer especially when it comes to processing power and battery life.
