If you prefer a compact smartphone, do not need 1 TB of internal storage and are considering one of the S10 series, then the Galaxy S10 may be a better choice than the S10+. After all, you can save €350 with almost no compromises.

- Daniel Schmidt, Notebookcheck
The Verge

The S10 is only $100 cheaper than the S10 Plus and $150 more expensive than the S10E, which offers much of the same experience in an even smaller size and without the annoyances of the in-display fingerprint scanner. I think the S10 Plus’ extra cost will be worth it for those who want the absolute b...

I think the S10 Plus’ extra cost will be worth it for those who want the absolute best battery life they can get, while the S10E will be more appealing to people who are looking for a smaller phone or wanting to save some money.

Any way you look at it, this is a substantial amount of cash to shell out for a smartphone, especially when there are comparable Android devices that are nearly as good at cheaper price tags. Still, in a sense, you really do get what you pay for when it comes to the S10. The overall experience the phone offers is stellar and for the first time in years, the new hole punch Infinity-O display has helped the Samsung's flagship find an identity of its own in the crowded smartphone market.

The Galaxy S10 is very much a Samsung phone that employs Samsung's familiar formula, with a few little extras and updates that make a big difference. And that's a good thing. You get one of the best designs and displays in the smartphone business, and the ultra-wide camera is a killer feature that previous Galaxy phones don't have. The regular camera is pretty great too!

Even when compared to the Huawei Mate 20 Pro, the Galaxy S10 has a better screen, sharper cameras, slicker design, and even longer battery life—all without needing to sacrifice the phone’s headphone jack.

The S10 and S10+ aren't phones that are going to blow you away with new innovative features - we've seen hole punch displays, in-display fingerprint scanners, and penta-camera setups before - but Samsung offers a refined, premium experience that makes them the best choice for most Android users, especially if you're not sold on Huawei yet. If cost isn't a factor for you, by all means, wait for the Galaxy Fold, but for everyone else, these are the phones for you.

A superb phone

Years of refinement have brought us to a place where groundbreaking changes are unlikely, but as incremental upgrades go, this is one of the more meaningful ones and it's easy to recommend.
