About Samsung Galaxy S10 5G - Review, Specs + more

The Samsung Galaxy S10 5G has a top-quality display, several enormous high-resolution cameras and a high-performance battery. It doesn't differ at all to the regular Galaxy S10 except for the obvious 5G capabilities. And with it you'll also be one of the first of your mates on the fast 5G network.

Galaxy S10 - Now with 5G

So... The Samsung Galaxy S10 5G - the first available phone in the UK with 5G (although the OnePlus 7 Pro 5G arguably did beat it slightly).The 5G network has got off to a rather slow start in the UK but it's increasing all the time, and now might be the time to consider buying if you're looking to have full boasting rights.

And with data rates of up to 1.3 GB/s you're sure to make your friends envious.

But let's start by recapping: The S10 5G is the fourth model of the Galaxy S10 series. The other 3 devices are:

  • Galaxy S10e deals: It houses 3 cameras (2 rear, 1 front) and 128GB of memory. Its display measures 5.8 inches and resolves to 1080 × 2280 pixels. The main memory is quite small at 6 GB, the battery 3100 mAh: It is the cheapest and smallest model in the series and suitable for those who want high-end without the price-tag.
  • Galaxy S10 deals: It has a 6.1-inch display, 4 cameras (3 rear, 1 front) and 8 GB of RAM. Its battery is 3400 mAh large, its internal memory depending on the variant 128 or 512 GB. Its display boasts 1440 × 3040 pixels. It is the second cheapest model in the series.
  • Galaxy S10 Plus deals: Its display is a whole 6.4 inches tall and resolves to 1440 × 3040 pixels. Depending on the variant, the S10+ is available with 8 or 12 GB of RAM. There are a rather stupendous 5 cameras on it: 3 on the back, 2 on the front. Depending on the version, the internal memory is 128 GB, 512 GB or 1 TB, the battery is 4000 mAh. This is the ultimate Samsung phone for those willing to spend more - but doesn't have 5G support.

Back to this model, the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G could be the best 5G phone around. Its camera is one of the most consistent and versatile smartphone snappers we’ve tested, and the background defocus effects it creates are also top-notch thanks to its ToF (time of flight) sensors.

The screen is also big and beautiful, and across the board, everything about this phone feels premium. The Huawei P30 Pro would make an excellent alternative, but if you want to be futureproofed and don’t mind paying for the luxury, the S10 5G is a great choice.

S10 5G Display

The OLED display is outstanding - indeed, according to this review they were able to reach 1039 candelas, i.e. an extremely BRIGHT level of, well, brightness. Our own reviewer reports excellent results in the laboratory and rates the display at 98.3% ("very good").

Battery life

The battery lasted 11.5 hours in the test. It fully charges within about 100 minutes via superfast charging. In the first 30 minutes it already got to about 50%, as well.

Now onto those cameras. We aren't going to repeat all parts of our regular Samsuns Galaxy S10 review here, but just summarise the points in brief.

Our own reviewer couldn't really fault the camera setup and gave this a rating of"very good". Briefly: an image stabiliser in the wide-angle and telephoto lens prevents shakey images. If you want to read more about the camera/photo system read our main S10 review.

Can you get 5G coverage where you are? Check the map here.

Just to summarise some of the plus-points of this hugely capable beast of a phone:

  • Can be unlocked by fingerprint sensors
  • Keeps the 3.5 millimetre headphone socket
  • Waterproof (IP68)
  • Intuitive to operate through the user interface One UI 1.1
  • Can do the bokeh effect in both photos and videos, i.e. making the background stylishly "out of focus"
  • In daylight, the picture quality is excellent
  • 5G , where available is immense

Thumbs down:

No slot for microSD or 2nd SIM card - Our tester complained that there is no slot for a second SIM or memory card.

High quality, high price: what alternatives are there?

The Galaxy A90 is not out yet, but this looks to be a suitable alternative once it's ready we'll give it a review here. In the meantime consider the Huawei P30 Pro, the iPhone XS or the Galaxy A80.

The Samsung Galaxy S10 5G is ideal for you if you:
  1. Need a particularly large display and high-performance cameras
  2. Surf a lot and need superfast 5G
  3. Feel that you need 256 GB of internal memory

Our Verdict - Galaxy S10 5G

The S10 5G is hard to fault - IF you ignore the price.

As with all things, you have to pay more to get the very best. The nearest iPhone equivalent is at least 2 years away from 5G capable, and the current roster of iPhone models is nowehere near up to this standard. If we were to suggest an equivalent it would be the iPhone Xs Max but this costs about £300 more...!

Otherwise it's a great package: its body is made of aluminium combined with Gorilla Glass 6. It’s water and dust resistant, and there’s a headphone jack on its bottom side, as well as a USB-C port. Around the back is a slight camera bump, where the quad camera is housed, and if you rest the S10 5G on a Qi charging pad, it supports wireless charging.

With reverse wireless charging, NFC and of course 5G under the hood, as well as 8GB RAM, it’s one of the most capable devices around – which is exactly what you’d expect when you’re paying over £1,000 for it!

How much does the Galaxy S10 5G cost in UK?

The price for the S10 5G is £999 at launch in the UK. You can however get it cheaper now that the price has come down.

On monthly contract: prices start at about £38 a month.

Galaxy S10 5G: What's the cheapest monthly deal?

Galaxy S10 5G deals: How long does delivery take?

If your device is in stock with the retailer, then most orders will be shipped by them within 24 hours so you could have your phone tomorrow morning. If it's a pre-order then we will let you know the approximate delivery date

Is SIM Only better for Galaxy S10 5G?

Generally speaking, SIM Only is cheaper but you don't have the benefit of paying monthly for your handset like the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, so it only really makes financial sense if you are in the fortunate position to be able to buy the handset outright first. Yes, it works out cheaper overall if you can do that, at least nearly always - but it is really a personal preference. Find out more about SIM Only deals here

Not sure which mobile network to go for?

oneCompare completely gets it, it's not easy trying to understand the differences of each mobile network operator. Is o2 any better than Vodafone for this smartphone, when it comes to coverage? Or worse? It's a real minefield. Another example, which is better? A Samsung Galaxy S10 5G ee contract or a Samsung Galaxy S10 5G Tesco Mobile contract?

The reality is, it can make a huge difference to your satifaction with the overall product. Who wants to have cruddy download speeds? But never fear - oneCompare is here. Don't forget to check our latest Blog posts below.

Before you decide to buy a contract or handset, it's important to know if you'll get a signal. Who wants to be walking around into mobile network's blackholes?! After all, ordering your brand new Samsung Galaxy S10 5G contract only to find you can't use your data (never mind going over the allowance!) in your own house will be pretty not cool.

A simple website a number of our visitors have used is Open Signal which maps signals across all major mobile networks within the UK.

So which network has the best signal?

According to Which?, in their recent research, covering June to August 2017, they focused on 4G performance and found that EE offered the fastest average 4G download speeds of the four networks (EE, O2, Three and Vodafone). While EE customers enjoyed average 4G download speeds of 29Mbps, those using the O2 network had to put up with an average speed of just 15.1Mbps.

EE's network was also at the top of the list when it came to the availability of its 4G signal, with customers able to access it 78.5% of the time. Customers with Three had the poorest access to a 4G signal - they were able to access it just 57.1% of the time - that's only just more than half the time, 24/7!

Should I buy SIM-Only, and will it save money?

In truth, this answer will depend on your personal financial circumstances, in combination with your mobile phone usage requirements.

Out of our 1261 Samsung Galaxy S10 5G deals, our cheapest Samsung Galaxy S10 5G deal over the entire life of the contract is £1140.00, this includes any upfront handset cost and cashback redemption.

oneCompare's team have seen a number of scenarios where our cheapest contract is actually cheaper than buying the phone SIM-free without any contract, this loophole can be a great way to save on your new phone and is largely possible as the Mobile networks subsidise the handset cost to gain you as a new customer.

A relatively simple SIM Only comparison calculation is to add up how much a Samsung Galaxy S10 5G SIM Free phone would cost to buy i.e. this is where you buy the phone without a contract and pay for the full cost of the handset upfront.

The benefit here is flexibility: you're able to then compare the SIM Only contract market where Mobile networks often give you far better usage allowances and shorter contract terms. Once you've found a SIM Only contract that meets your needs, note the monthly cost over the course of 24 months and add this to your SIM Free Samsung Galaxy S10 5G handset cost. You're now in a great position to compare this cost to a regular Samsung Galaxy S10 5G Contract.

Did you know? You can compare SIM only deals from Sky, o2, Vodafone and all the other networks with oneCompare!

Pro Tip: A great way to save a few extra pounds when comparing SIM Only contracts, is to consider purchasing a pre owned Samsung Galaxy S10 5G phone from the likes of MusicMagpie who provide warranties and flexible handset payment terms.
