The Samsung Galaxy S10e is the cheapest phone in the newly-announced Samsung S10 family. Compared to its S10 and S10 Plus bigger brothers, the S10e is a bit smaller, a bit less powerful and a fair bit cheaper. It’s also a major competitor to Apple’s ‘budget-premium’ iPhone XR.
Despite being the cheapest S10 model, the S10e still has a very enticing set of features. These include an OLED display, brand new processor and dual cameras. For all this, you’ll have to part with $750 which is, conveniently enough, the same price as Apple’s cut-price iPhone XR.
On paper, at least, it looks like the S10e should have the XR licked. The S10e has a sharper screen, more impressive design, better cameras and more storage. So, is the S10e the best “cheap flagship” phone on the market?
