Samsung pulled the wraps off its Galaxy S10 family of smartphones in late February, and the Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ went on sale earlier this month. One member of the family that hasn’t yet launched, however, is the Galaxy S10 5G. We’re now learning that this smartphone is expected to launch in South Korea on April 5th according to YonHap News. If you’re a U.S. resident hoping to get your mitts on the Galaxy S10 5G, you’ll have to wait just a bit longer. Word is that it will be available as a Verizon Wireless exclusive starting from April 11th. If that April 11th date sounds familiar, it’s because that’s the same date that... Read more...
Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S10 family of devices last month. Anticipation for the smartphones was high, and when preorders launched the device set records in the U.S. Now that the smartphone has been in the hands of users for a bit, an issue has surfaced that is annoying some owners. Reports are coming in that the accidental touch protection afforded by the proximity sensor on the S10 appears to be malfunctioning. Users are reporting when they place the smartphone into their pocket; the fingerprint sensor is activating and waking the screen up. One user on Samsung's support forums says that not only is the screen waking up, but that the smartphone is sensing the touch of the pocket and... Read more...
Samsung's recently launched Galaxy S10 series represents the best of the popular smartphone line yet, with a gorgeous display, an excellent camera system, and some nifty features. There is that punch-hole cutout, though, which some people find annoying. If you are one of them, you can turn the eyesore into a showpiece by downloading specially designed wallpaper. Users have been getting creative with the punch-hole cutouts, which is circular on the Galaxy S10e and pill-shaped on the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+. Recently designed wallpapers do not just obliviously wrap around the front camera(s), they incorporate the cutouts into the design so that it looks like they belong, as part of the image....

In a relatively short period of time, we’ve gone from relatively thick bezels at the top and bottom of our smartphones, to increased real estate courtesy of a central notch, to punch hole displays. Samsung’s most recent Galaxy S10 family of smartphones (read our review here), which were announced last month, fully embrace their punch hole “Infinity-O” display. "Punching a hole in the OLED display is a very challenging technology," said Yang Byung-duk, who serves as Samsung’s vice president of Mobile Communication R&D Group Display. "We tried the technology for Galaxy's 10th anniversary model and think the strategy worked as a result."  Samsung... Read more...
Samsung is doing extremely well -- so far -- with its Galaxy S10 line of devices. The smartphones set a record in the U.S. for pre-orders showing that finally, Samsung appears to have a device that will lure users into upgrading. The S10's OLED dispaly has also scored the highest-ever A+ rating in the DisplayMate benchmark. Now that the devices are making their way into the hands of customers, many are looking into the source code to find hints at new features or additional models. Sleuthing into the source code of the Galaxy S10 kernel has unveiled hints that a 5G version of the Galaxy Note 10 smartphone is in the works. The discovery came after Samsung posted the source code for the Exynos... Read more...
How resilient is your brand new Samsung Galaxy S10 to the rigors of daily use? SquareTrade recently conducted a drop “test” and noted that Samsung’s three new Galaxy S10 devices are all susceptible to cracking. Interestingly, SquareTrade concluded that Galaxy S10 performed better than the S10e and S10+. SquareTrade dropped the Samsung Galaxy S10, S10e, and S10+ from six feet both face down and face up. The camera lens and flash of the Galaxy S10e broke when it was dropped face up and the device was completely unusable when it fell face down. The Galaxy S10+ shattered after both drops but continued to remain somewhat functional. The S10 cracked after it was dropped, but it was... Read more...
Samsung has rolled out its recently launched Galaxy S10 family to around 70 countries, including the US, Canada, China, and all of Europe, and is planning to offer its newest flagship phones in about 130 markets by the end of the month. Ahead of that rapid expansion, Samsung has seen record preorder tallies in a couple of territories. Heading into the weekend, Samsung said its Galaxy S10 lineup generated more preorder sales in the UK than any of its previous smartphones, and now it is saying the same for preorders in the US. That is quite the accomplishment, given the company's 10-year history in the smartphone business. What also makes this impressive is that smartphone growth as a whole has... Read more...
At long last, Samsung's much anticipated Galaxy S10 family is on sale today, as in you can actually pluck one from a retail shelf and bring it home (as opposed to going the pre-order route). Already, however, some users have noticed a blinking white pixel that is causing concern. Rest assured though, it is a feature of the phone, and not a bug. We mean that humorously (in reference to Apple using explanation) and not snarkily. It actually is a feature—the blinking white pixel is related to the proximity sensor. This allows the Galaxy S10 to detect when your face or ear get close to the phone, as would be the case when making an actual phone call, so it can automatically turn off the display... Read more...
Samsung leads the pack in global smartphone market share, with over 21 percent command, versus second place Apple that sits at a little over 15 percent, and Huawei at about 14.8. Samsung and Apple both lost ground to Huawei last year, but if early indications for the first quarter of 2019 are on point, Samsung could come roaring back, due in part to the positive reception of the company's 10th generation Galaxy S series device, the Galaxy S10. Samsung's Galaxy S10 family is currently a trio of Android handsets, soon to expand to a quartet, with the introduction of a 5G-targeted variant sometime next month. To say the buzz around Samsung's launch has been deafening would be an understatement.... Read more...
We have long felt that Samsung makes some of the best and most vibrant displays in the business, and have been particularly enamored with the Super AMOLED panels that it uses on its flagship phones. If you do not want to just take our word for it, though, check out DisplayMate's evaluation of the Galaxy S10. DisplayMate is one of the definitive sources of panel testing, and many sites (HotHardware included) use the company's tests when evaluating monitors. Following the launch of the Galaxy S10 series, the company subjected the regular Galaxy S10 to its battery of display benchmarks, which now includes new tests and even tougher grading systems than before. Even so, the Galaxy S10 receive DisplayMate's... Read more...
We already know what makes the Galaxy S10+ tick—a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 or Samsung's own Exynos 9820 processor (depending on the region), 8GB or 12GB of RAM (depending on the model), and up to 512GB of onboard storage (also depending on the model). Despite already knowing the specs, it's always interesting to see a high-tech device torn down and gutted, and the Galaxy S10+ has already been given the DIY surgical treatment. The Galaxy S10+ is one of three new Galaxy S10 devices that are due out this month, the other two being the regular Galaxy S10 and a smaller Galaxy S10e. There is also the Galaxy S10 5G slated for the first half of 2019, and as its name implies, it boasts a 5G radio... Read more...
There’s no question that the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ were a big sales disappointment for Samsung. The smartphones launched around this time last year and right out of the gate, sales were lagging behind its predecessors, with at least one report suggesting that Galaxy S9 sales were the lowest of any Galaxy flagship since the 2012-era Galaxy S3. Fortunately for Samsung, it looks as though last year’s sales slide won’t carry over to 2019. That news comes courtesy of notorious leaker Ice Universe, who claims that during its 24-hour presales period in China, the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ doubled the presale performance of their Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+...

Unless you've been living under a rock for the past 24 hours, then you know that Samsung announced its Galaxy S10 family of smartphones yesterday along with the Galaxy Fold and a number of other Galaxy-branded accessories. The South Korean electronics giant said that preorders would open today, and right on cue, the major wireless carriers in the United States have lined up with their promos for the Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+. So, without further ado, here’s the pricing breakdown for each smartphone in both carrier-locked and unlocked versions. Galaxy S10e Verizon is offering the entry-level smartphone at a cost of $31.24/month for 24 months for the 128GB... Read more...
Without a doubt, Samsung's new Galaxy S10 family is impressive on many levels. While Samsung's top flagship smartphone is the Galaxy S10 5G, that device won't be shipping until later in the first half of 2019. Until then, the Galaxy S10+ will reign supreme as the top end device that Samsung has to offer; and from our early look at this device, it appears to be a pocket-sized supercomputer. The top-end Galaxy S10+ comes packing a 6.4-inch Dynamic AMOLED display with a 19:9 aspect ratio and Quad HD+ resolution. It features a total of three rear cameras, two selfie cameras, a large 4100 mAh battery (which can be wirelessly charged, or in turn, it can wirelessly charge other devices with... Read more...
