Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite Review

The beginning of 2020 was marked by the appearance of several interesting low-cost versions of Samsung's flagships. Among them was the Galaxy S10 Lite. You can read about its merits and demerits in the following lines.

Design

Visually, the front panel of the Galaxy S10 Lite does not differ from most flagships of the South Korean manufacturer. It features minimal side bezels, a thin bottom bezel, and a front camera cut into the screen. In this case, it is directly in the center, similar to what we know from the Galaxy Note 10. On the rear panel, we see a rather large rectangular block that houses the main camera. This is the point to note that the panel is made of plastic, not glass. After all, this is a lightweight version of the flagship!

You can buy the Galaxy S10 Lite in three colours - black, blue or white. In dimensions and weight, this smartphone is similar to the Galaxy Note Plus - 162.5 x 75.6 x 8.1 mm and 186 grams. The device is large and some users will find it difficult to fit in one hand.

Display

The Galaxy S10 Lite uses a 6.7-inch SuperAMOLED panel with a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels. The pixel density per inch is 392. The aspect ratio is 20:9. AlwaysOn Display function, Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protective glass, quality oleophobic coating, excellent color rendering and excellent level of maximum brightness complete the good impressions. Thanks to the use of a small notch and thin bezels, the screen occupies 87.8% of the front panel area. This is a worthy indicator that is second only to the best flagships on the market.

Performance

The South Korean company has used last year's top chipset Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 as the hardware base of the Galaxy S10 Lite. It is a power-efficient and quite powerful 7nm 8-core platform clocked up to 2.73 GHz and Adreno 640 graphics. You'll find the same processor in several popular models on the market, including the Xiaomi Mi 9 and Sony Xperia 1. Combined with 6 GB of RAM, the user gets a powerful enough device that will perform any daily task with ease and handle even the toughest games. The Galaxy S10 Lite will be up to date for at least a few years - we can judge this by its features.

To complete the picture about the Galaxy S10 Lite, we should mention that it features a sub-scan fingerprint scanner, a microSD memory card slot and an NFC module for contactless payments.

Cameras

What does the Galaxy S10 Lite offer for fans of smartphone photography? A triple rear camera! Its main module has a 48 MP sensor, ƒ/2.0 aperture optics and optical stabilization. It's complemented by a 12 MP ultra-wide-angle module and a 5 MP module for macro photography. With this camera, you will create quality photos with high detail and wide dynamic range. Its results are only slightly inferior to full-fledged Samsung flagships.

With the Galaxy S10 Lite, you can record 4K video at 60 frames per second. Stabilization only works in 1080p mode at 30fps.

The front camera is a solid 32 MP module. It handles selfies excellently and will impress all your friends and relatives with superb pictures.

Autonomous operation

Like the Galaxy Note10 Lite, the Galaxy S10 Lite uses a 4500 mAh battery. Given the AMOLED display and power-efficient processor, you'll have good autonomous performance with it. Tests show results of approximately over 11 hours of active operation. If you don't stress the system that much, you can count on a day and a half.

The Galaxy S10 Lite supports fast charging technology, which means you'll go from 0 to 100% charge in just 95 minutes.

Conclusion

The Galaxy S10 Lite resembles its Note 10 Lite relative in many ways. The latter features perks like a stylus and the usual headphone jack. However, the Galaxy S10 Lite has a more powerful processor and takes higher quality photos. The absence of moisture and dust protection should make you more careful when using it near bodies of water or perhaps in the bathroom.

Pros:

  • Nice and stylish look;
  • Quality and large screen;
  • Face and fingerprint scanning technology;
  • Flagship performance;
  • Good level of autonomous operation;
  • A quality camera whose photos and videos will make you proud.

Cons:

  • Polymer back panel;
  • Absence of water and dust protection;
  • More could have been expected from the sound quality.
