The Samsung Galaxy S10e is the company’s flagship phone with 2019 specs and features at 2016 prices, giving consumers the opportunity to nab top features form the Galaxy S10 at a solid discount.
The handset is no longer one of Samsung’s newest smartphones, as it was succeeded a year after launch by the Galaxy S20 series, which doesn’t have an affordable ‘Lite’ phone equivalent.
The S10e’s biggest competition is the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite that was introduced at CES 2020, yet isn’t widely available. The S10e remains the affordable pick that’s smaller in size.
In such a way, the S10e (‘e’ for ‘essential’) has plenty in common with the Apple iPhone 11, and it’s easy to see it as the Samsung budget flagship for its line: both pack the standout perks of their generation while shaving off a few extras present in their costlier siblings. Now that Apple’s budget flagship has an ultrawide camera and improved software, the S10e’s list of novel features is a bit shorter, though its smaller size is still a bonus for some.
The Samsung Galaxy S10e may pale in comparison to the company’s later flagships, but if you’re looking for a useful 2019 smartphone that’s still better than its contemporary Galaxy A phones, you’re in luck.
