S10e FAQ: A Little Phone with a Big Bite

Let us answer your questions about the S10e

refurbished S10e FAQ
Is the S10e worth buying?

If you want to judge if the S10e is worth it, you need to consider what you want in your next phone and how much you’re willing to pay for it. If you specifically want something smaller for one-handed use, this is still one of the best small Android phones to get in 2021. And it costs less than half what it did when it was released in 2019.

Our S10e sales are all refurbished, but if you buy one in mint condition I swear you'll think it's brand new :O

Should I buy the S10 or S10e?

The S10 has a slightly bigger screen, and just a tad more battery life, but it’s also harder to hold in the hand because of the narrower edges (due to the curved display) and larger size. So if you have bigger hands and/or consume a lot of content on your phone, you should probably buy the S10.

All the Android deals we have on our website may be refurbished, but that doesn't mean they don't look and feel new... except for the price, of course :-P

Is the S10e worth it in 2021?

The S10e was released in 2019, but it’s still a cool niche phone to buy for 2021 because there weren’t many other mini-sized Android flagships that were released in the last couple years. Not to mention the fact that this phone still has relatively powerful internals that will continue feeling quick and snappy for at least another 2 years.

Is the S10e better than the S9?

The S10e is better than the S9 in almost every way. It has more battery life, a faster processor, better cameras, and it houses a bigger display in a smaller body. But if you’re a fan of Samsung’s curved screens and have a smaller budget, the S9 may be the better choice for you.

Does the S10e have a curved screen?

Surprisingly, no. The S10e is the only modern Samsung flagship-level phone that was released without a curved display, and it’s really a matter of preference whether you view this as good or bad news. Personally, I’m a fan of curved displays, but I still have a lot of love for the S10e.
