The Samsung Galaxy S1 + real-world review a month later – there’s something different about your day about packing a flagship mobile in your pocket. For one thing, you start seeing your phone on hoarding as Commercials between TV shows. And when you walk through the manufacturer’s retail store, you know that you already have the best product that they are selling.
In 2021, this phone is in writing as Samsung Galaxy S10+. This is the biggest, worst Android device money can buy. With a starting price of Rs 1,18,000+ this phone represents the kind of investment people used to spend on motorcycles, laptops, or holidays.
So, “Is it worth it”? Here is a real-world review of the best phones in the world.
in Day-to-day use
Moving from the Galaxy Note 9 to the S10+, one of the things I appreciated the most was the slimmer form factor. Despite being a big phone, the S10 + feels good and easy to hold. The decision to move the fingerprint scanner from back to front clears some real estate backwards, making the phone better.
What makes this phone a true flagship is a battery. In an age where most people ration their intensive app-usage so that they don’t run out of battery by the end of the day, the S10 + makes you happy to game on it, run a 24 × 7 hotspot, the Samsung Smartwatch Sync with and play movies at 2K. If you start using it this morning, it will return to you by tomorrow afternoon. This battery life is worth holding.
When I had time, I found myself switching lenses and experimenting with shots that I could take once from standard wide, once from telephoto, and once from ultra-wide. The ultra-wide lens is easily my favorite of many.
When faced with a “real” scenario to capture a face like a mountain range feel I no longer feel like my device fails to do justice. The telephoto lens proves to be slightly artificial according to my comparative tests, the image quality is not as good as a cropped photo from a standard lens.
The standard shooter is good for most purposes shooter. I found myself shooting at night and in low light and found that I was more than usual. The S10 + will make you an informal group selfie photographer wherever you are, thanks to its impressive live focus and clarity.
However, the “group” mode of the front camera is only a slight improvement from the regular one in terms of taking wider frames. Nevertheless, you will be expected to take a lot of selfies. If you are okay with this responsibility, the S10 + hole-punch camera will be cut out for you in every social gathering.
It is worth noting that an entire episode of The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon was shot on the Galaxy S 10+. Given that the setting was in Brooklyn night, it shows how well the phone performs in challenging situations. However, it needs to be said that a DSLR would have worked better.
Let’s face it, most of us are not using our pocket supercomputers to their maximum potential. Whether it is sending emails, browsing Instagram, or running multiple tabs on Chrome, the S10 + is completely unstable.
The sheer power of the CPU and GPU make it a gamer’s dream, a catch that most mobile games are not very demanding. Although it reaches the highest settings via PUBG, to really see it at its best you might want to try games like Need for Speed: No Limits or 2GB + any of the games you can find on the App Store Can.
Ultimately, I myself never used Bigsby AI Assistant. I have a Google Home, so the only AI assistant that matters to me will be Google’s own. Thankfully, there is a way to reconfigure Bixby’s physical buttons to activate Google’s assistant.
Common suspects of Samsung bloatware are all present, but they do not affect your user experience. Experienced Samsung users will only place Samsung apps in a folder and keep them out of sight and out of mind.
Something can be said about it being a flagship device. For one, they are better than mid-level phones. Although Yesteryear’s Motorola’s or Xiaomi may be capable of the real world, just like the S10 +, these phones are never responsive after a year or two of use.
By owning the previous model flagship, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, I can say that top-tier phones last longer and shrink over time. Samsung continues to have more bloatware than its rivals, but it does not affect the speed of the device as much as it used to.
Having a camera of this calibre in your pocket is something worth investing in, however, I still feel the absence of a real telephoto when I need to take some distant shots. Considering the S10 + is priced well in the mid-level DSLR range, it’s worth considering whether you should buy this device with a telephoto lens or DSLR if you’re serious about photography. For everyday purposes, the S10 + is pretty much anything you can throw at it.
