When Samsung first came out with the Galaxy S10, the company focused on three main aspects of the device: the display, camera, and performance, and this is where Samsung’s focus paid off. This is the reason why, even today, Samsung Galaxy S10 second hand continues to be quite popular among the youth.
The reason behind Galaxy S10’s popularity
To put it simply, Samsung’s S10 came with an impressive Super AMOLED display, one that has always been the most interesting factor of Samsung handsets. It made use of the Dynamic OLED technology and HDR10+, thereby offering superior brightness and contrast. In fact, the technology even allows SIM free Samsung S10 devices to sport more accurate colors and better viewing angles while watching HD content.
The Samsung S10 comes with Qualcomm’s then top-of-the-line chip: Snapdragon 855 and boasts a minimum of 8GB RAM. In fact, the chip continues to impress even today! Compare it against any mid-level chipset, and the 2019 device would come out on top.
Samsung’s Galaxy S10 comes with tons of bells and whistles, one of which is reverse wireless charging. This allows people to charge other Qi-compatible devices by simply placing the device on the back of the Galaxy S10.

Is the Samsung S10 a better buy than iPhone 11?
Clearly, the Samsung Galaxy S10 scores over Apple’s iPhone XR and iPhone 11. In fact, even if you opt for Samsung Phones Sim Free, it would still have a better display than both the iPhone models. So, it’s really a matter of personal preference, though the Samsung device scores over the iPhone models in many respects.
According to some experts, both Samsung and Apple have always taken different approaches to design and features. This is all the more evident in how iPhone 11 and Samsung S10 have taken different approaches to their camera lens placement. While both the handsets come with a trio of lenses in the form of an ultra wide, a wide, and a telephoto lens, Samsung’s S10 comes across as slightly more advanced. When you buy a refurbished Galaxy S10, it still comes with a 16 MP wide and ultra wide lens compared to iPhone 11’s 12 MP lenses. Moreover, S10’s primary camera comes with a variable aperture. So, it shifts to a wider aperture when in dimly lit situations to let in more light and enhance the shot.
