When you’re considering upgrading, there are always a variety of factors to look at. Are the design and display of the new phone demonstrably better than your current model? Will your photos look better? How is your battery life now compared to what you’ll get? Are there new features that you really don’t want to do without? For this comparison, I’m looking at the new Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus to see what they offer compared to previous models. (There is also now a low-end model, the Galaxy S10E, which doesn’t really have an equivalent, but which may also be worth checking out if you’re a Samsung fan with a limited budget.) … [Read more...] about Samsung Galaxy S8 vs. S9 vs. S10: should you upgrade?

The Samsung Galaxy S10 leaks have been relentless for the last couple of weeks, and a new one has just surfaced, this time around the phone was allegedly spotted somewhere in Korea, in a subway, in fact. The image surfaced on Twitter, and truth be said, it’s not the best image out there, so we cannot be sure that it has anything to do with Samsung, let alone that it’s the Galaxy S10, but it’s possible.

Unlike some previous reports about the Galaxy S10 lineup, the new set of renders suggest Samsung won't be positioning the front-facing camera setup of the upcoming handsets centrally. Instead, the leaks show a two-sensor system sitting in the top-right corner of yet another Infinity Display panel, a Super AMOLED module expected to have a QHD+ resolution and a tall aspect ratio of at least 18.5:9. What's unchanged compared to older rumors is the suggestion that Samsung is doing away with a traditional top bezel design and will instead be situating its next front-facing … [Read more...] about Samsung Galaxy S10+ Leaks In Highest-Resolution Renders Yet
