The S10 plus has a lot in common with the standard Galaxy S10 but there are also some premium features that accompany the Plus (+) which are absent on the S10 and S10e. The major ones been bigger screen size up to 6.4″ and bigger battery of 4100 mAh, two cameras at the front and cooling system.
If you have seen my previous article on Samsung Galaxy S10, then you know almost all you need to know about the Plus model too.
Unlike the Galaxy S9+ which isn’t much different from the S8+, the S10+ comes with an upgrade in almost all department. The part that saw the major update is the display, camera and charging technology.

Thanks to 19:9 aspect ratio and 93.1% screen to body ratio, the S10 Plus has almost the same dimension (length, width and height) as the S9+ but with bigger screen size which is the same as that on the Note 9. The S10+ is also lighter and thinner than its predecessor.

This display is brighter and sharp and the best display currently on any smartphone and to spice things up a little, it has ultrasonic fingerprint sensor embedded under it. This sensor is said to be faster and more secure than the optic sensor seen on devices like OnePlus 6T.
Samsung call its display next level infinity-O display coined out of the laser cut out at the top right corner which housed the front facing camera. This manufacturer’s smartphone have for some years now has the best display in any smartphone and they have again break their own record by been the first smartphone to support HDR10+.

Above the infinity display is the stereo speaker and there is nothing below the display other than a pretty thin bezel. The left hand side of the device housed the volume and bixby buttons while the right hand side housed the power button.
