Re-reviewing the Galaxy S10 Plus in 2020, one year after its original launch (and OneUI’s introduction) and ahead of the S20 reveal. Here’s how Samsung’s big blower stacks up 12 months later, including camera updates (a night mode, rejoice!), performance, battery life and the everyday experience.
That Galaxy S10+ no longer seems like a monster, with most mobiles hitting a similar size in 2020. Battery longevity seems to have actually improved over time, possibly due to software updates, while the triple lens rear camera has been boosted for low light shots. It’s not the best smartphone for photo quality but the video output is still brilliant. Check out my review of the greatest camera phones for video recording for a closer look.
Speed is not an issue – the likes of PubG Mobile still play with a beautiful frame rate on the Samsung S10 Plus. Plus, the media chops are as solid as ever, despite the lack of 90Hz refresh and Dolby Vision action.
But of course the Galaxy S10+ is still far too expensive ahead of the S20 Plus launch, so here’s hoping that price comes down when the latest Samsung flagship mobiles arrive.
