Unboxing the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite, a more affordable 2020 version of the original flagship phone, with a full tour of the specs, camera tech and One UI 2.1 features. This new handset is a confusing alternative to the S10e, with some of Samsung’s fresher design elements – and here’s all you need to know about the Galaxy S10 Lite ahead of my review.
Here in the UK, you can pick it up from £38 a month on Vodafone, or £569 SIM free
You don’t get the super-powered camera setup of the standard smartphone but you do still have a triple lens arrangement, with features like Live Focus Video. Photo quality seems to be respectable, with night mode and other tools to hand.
The Samsung S10 Lite is also huge vs the old devices, with a mighty 6.7-inch Super AMOLED screen. You have that Snapdragon 855 platform for smooth performance, and gaming with the likes of PubG Mobile should be a breeze. I’m also hoping the battery life is a winner, with a 4500mAh cell boasting 45W fast charge.
So is the S10 Lite one of the best premium mid-range phones of 2020? Well, there’s tough competition from the newer OnePlus 8, which offers water resistance, 90Hz display tech and optical zoom camera action. My full review will hopefully be up soon!
