Design and Build Quality
Let's talk about the Samsung Galaxy S 10e. Samsung Galaxy S10e feels like a breath of fresh air with its compact and lightweight design. It's just so small just look at it next to other flat shapes out phones. I love this small design because almost all the phones these days are just huge and this fits in my hand just perfectly. Anyway, it's not just this compact design the here is a flagship. Samsung's first budget flagship is as exciting as the Galaxy S10 or the Galaxy S10 plus if not more. Samsung Galaxy S10e is a solid flagship. I know it has a few differences when compared to the Galaxy S 10 and the S 10 plus but they are the deal-breakers.
Samsung Galaxy S10e features a traditional flat 5.8 inch dynamic AMOLED display and like the Galaxy S10 and the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus, it has a gorgeous display even though it's not QHD+ and while I obviously find the curved display more attractive I'm more than okay with this flat display. It also comes with corning gorilla glass 5. Unless a lot of people prefer the flat displays over the curved ones on Galaxy S. Another big change in the Galaxy S 10e is the fingerprint scanner. Unlike the S10 and the S10 Plus which have ultrasonic in display fingerprint scanners, Galaxy S10 has a physical fingerprint scanner embedded in the power button. The physical fingerprint scanner is fast and more accurate and you can rely on it and like the ultrasonic fingerprint scanners I just prefer this over the in display scanner on the Samsung Galaxy S10.
Though Samsung has compromised in terms of design and screen, there is no difference in performance. All three variants of Samsung Galaxy S10 features the same chipset, OS and CPU. It comes with an Exynos 9820 Octa (8 nm) chipset. Another variant that Samsung galaxy S10e comes with is Qualcomm Snapdragon 855. So, there is no compromise on this phone in terms of performance. All the applications run super smooth with a boost in application launch. Almost every application opens quite fast in Samsung S10 series as they mentioned. Samsung Galaxy S10e comes with 6 GB base variant and 8 GB variant with 128 GB of internal storage. So, the multi-tasking is quite great and the phone is super smooth. You also have an option to increase the internal storage with the help of microSD up to 512 GB. Games like Asphalt 9 and PubG mobile runs fine with the highest setting and there is no lag at all when you play the games as expected.
Next up there's a difference on the Camera, unlike the S10 and the S10 Plus, the Galaxy S 10e has dual cameras on the back with primary 12-megapixel dual approach camera with a 16-megapixel ultra-wide lens. Yes, you don't get the telephoto lens but honestly, does anyone ever use the telephoto lens. I personally don’t use telephoto lens too much. Apart from that, it's the same cameras like the Samsung Galaxy S10 and the S10 Plus and that means photo and video quality is right up there with the very best.
All the photos have quite great detail and there is almost no noise in the images. The portrait images are also quite nice and edge detection is also nice. This phone can shoot up to 4K at 60 fps like Samsung Galaxy S10 and Samsung Galaxy S10 plus. And for the front camera, it only features one single camera with 10 MP, f/1.9, 26mm (wide), 1.22µm, Dual Pixel PDAF which shoots a great selfie. The picture quality is also quite nice and there is some improvement when compared to last year’s Galaxy S9 plus.
Let's check out a few shots taken from the Galaxy S10e.
Battery and Other Features
Samsung Galaxy S10e has a modest 3100 mAh battery which does sound low for a flagship smartphone and yes compared to the s10 and the s10 plus it's low but you need to consider the fact that the s10e has a smaller display with a lower resolution. In my usage I found the battery performance on the Galaxy S10e to be average it's not good but it's not anything amazing either. It's just fine. Samsung S10e comes with a 15-watt fast charger out of the box and this 15-watt charger charges the phone from 0 to 100% in just 60 minutes which is definitely big.
So, those are all the differences between the galaxy S10e and the S10 and S 10plus. And if you ask me, for me these changes don't really affect the experience. I mean the camera performance is great along with the display while full HD is still the beautiful dynamic AMOLED display and the battery is fine. In fact, some of the changes like the physical fingerprint scanner make the S10e better so they are sturdy even with its differences to the S10 and S10 plus.

Apart from a few differences, the S10e is a flagship so you get the same stunning design the same flagship great specs and performance and the same software experience for a price tag of around rupees Rs. 93,900. I know it's still quite a lot but a full-fledged Samsung flagship at this price is just value for money I mean I really think that the OnePlus 7 already has a worthy competitor in the form of the Samsung Galaxy S10e.
