The Samsung Galaxy S10 is one of the company’s flagship phones. While the Galaxy S10e has been praised for its compact design and the S10 Plus lauded for its bigger screen, the S10 has been praised for striking a balance between the two. The phone’s performance is impressive. Its design is also spectacular. There is no doubt that the Galaxy S10 is one of the best phones ever made by Samsung. It is a perfect choice for people looking for a high-performance phone.
Samsung Galaxy S10 design and display
Samsung phones have the best screens. In fact, their screens are so good that most of their competitors are now using them. The Samsung Galaxy S10 features a 6.1-inch super AMOLED panel which is by far much better than any of its rival. The super AMOLED display that this phone feature has been crowned as the best display ever used in an android smartphone. It combines brightness control and blue light reduction technology to reduce eye strain by up to 42%. The HDR10+ delivers plenty of contrast and brightness for better visibility. The phone screen to body ratio is 93.1%. The S10 has a 6.1- inch display, which is smaller than the 6.4-inch in the S10 plus. However, the screen resolution and aspect ratio are the same-1440 by 3040 pixels resolution, 19:9 aspect ratio, and 550 PPI density.
Samsung has successfully eliminated notch on all its flagship phones. Instead, it has replaced it with a punch hole, a feature that Samsung calls Infinity O display. This cut out is located in the upper right corner of the screen. If the punch hole bothers you, then you can hide it by changing the phones setting, and the phone will treat it like it does not exist. Its frame is made of aluminum while the back is made of Gorilla Glass 5, which is attractive and durable.
