Samsung Galaxy S10 vs Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus Comparison

Galaxy S10 vs S10 Plus: which one should you buy and why

If you’re comparing the S10 vs S10 Plus, you should keep in mind that the two biggest distinguishing factors are size and battery life. Even though the S10 should have more than enough battery life to last the average user throughout the whole day without needing to recharge, you can expect a lot more juice from the S10 Plus since it has a 4,100 mAh battery versus a 3,400 mAh unit inside the regular S10. And just a side note: Samsung makes some really reliable batteries. They have some of the best batteries in the mobile phone industry when it comes to durability over time. If you’re set on buying the S10 Plus over the S10 because of this bigger battery, keep in mind that you’ll be getting a device that’s better for watching videos and reading content because of its bigger screen, but it also means you’re getting a device that’s harder to hold with one hand. It’ll also be harder to reach all parts of the screen with your thumb if you find your other hand busy.

Galaxy S10 vs S10 Plus: get the refurbished S10 Plus if you need a specs beast

If you’re a hardcore mobile gamer, you’ll be excited to hear that there is a top-tier version of the refurbished S10 Plus that comes with 1TB of storage and 12GB of RAM. The average user definitely won’t need all that power and space, but there are gamers out there who would be completely thrilled with a phone like this. That’s not to say that all mobile gamers need a phone with these kinds of parameters, but if you’re planning on playing a complex mobile game that’s very graphics intensive, and you like to further crank up your graphics performance, you may want to consider buying a refurbished S10 Plus.

Galaxy S10 vs S10 Plus: camera cutouts

One last important detail we forgot to mention about the S10 vs S10 Plus: the Plus version has a larger camera cutout on the front of the device since it has two front-facing cameras instead of just one. And that additional front-facing camera will only give you better background blurring (also known as “bokeh”) for portrait shots and better AR Emoji performance (a feature you probably won’t use). Some people find this larger camera cutout especially annoying. Those people should buy the refurbished S10 instead :)

S10 vs S10 Plus: our final verdict

Even though I’m an occasional gamer and enjoy cranking up the graphics specs when I play mobile games, 8GB of RAM is definitely more than enough for me. I also don’t like phones that are too large, since I’m often running around the city and need a phone I can easily use with one hand. Therefore, if I had to choose between the S10 vs S10 Plus, I’d definitely go for the S10.
