Gadgetren – Although it was only launched on February 20, 2019, the Samsung Galaxy S10 Series can already be ordered through pre-order. And interestingly, Indonesia is an early part of this.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 Series is Samsung’s new flagship device consisting of four variants, namely the Samsung Galaxy S10e, S10, S10+, and S10 5G (which are still stored by Samsung).
Of the four variants, the Samsung Galaxy S10 became a medium variant, which during the pre-order period was priced at Rp12,999,000 (for the 128 GB variant) and was directly priced at Samsung Smart TVs 32 inches.
So as not to mis variance when purchasing one of the devices from the Samsung Galaxy S10 Series family, here is a complete review of the advantages and disadvantages of the Samsung Galaxy S10 variant.

Advantages of Samsung Galaxy S10
Despite the infinity O-Display innovations I didn’t really like, the Samsung Galaxy S10 has been equipped with Samsung’s best display to date, the HDR10+ certified Dynamic AMOLED.
With this screen, Samsung Galaxy S10 devices can display images in more detail and have a more complete range of colors, especially for content that has a wide light or dark section.
In addition, the screen of this device is also quite spacious because it has a size of 6.1 inches with a curved shape and has supported Quad HD+ resolution with a pixel density of 550 ppi.
Carrying Qualcomm’s current toughest chipset, the Snapdragon 855, the Samsung Galaxy S10 offers a powerful performance that is certainly better than Samsung’s previous flagship, the Samsung Galaxy S9.
Based on claims from Samsung, this latest device can run with a 29 percent faster CPU and a 37 percent better GPU, when compared to the performance of the Samsung Galaxy S9.
Samsung also equips the Samsung Galaxy S10 with a very spacious, 8 GB RAM, combined with amper sizeable internal memory, which can be selected between 128 GB or 512 GB.
Safer In-Display Fingerprint
The Samsung Galaxy S10 has now also implemented the latest technology, a fingerprint sensor embedded inside the screen. In fact, this fingerprint sensor is claimed to have better capabilities when compared to other in-display fingerprint sensors.
This is because Samsung uses ultrasonic wave-based fingerprint sensor technology, while other devices typically use optical -based fingerprint sensor (light) technology.
That distinguishes between the two, ultrasonic sensors can capture 3D images while optical sensors are only 2D. This means that ultrasonic sensors will produce details that are harder to calibrate, aka safer.
In addition, ultrasonic sensors can also work on more materials compared to optical sensors, and can be used for other purposes such as health sensors that can record heart rate and blood flow.
More Complete Camera Lenses
In addition to the dual aperture technology that is still in use, the Samsung Galaxy S10 is also equipped with a complete lens combination, namely a 16 MP Ultra wide lens + 12 MP Wide angle lens + 12 MP Telephoto lens.
Disadvantages of Samsung Galaxy S10
Not Yet Using 3D Depth Sensor
Although it has brought the main camera with a more complete lens, the mid-range version of the Samsung Galaxy S10 Series unfortunately does not come with a 3D Depth Sensor (which is planned to be present in the 5G variant).
What is a 3D Depth Sensor? The 3D Depth Sensor is a sensor for taking 3D images. Or specifically, this sensor can be used to make bokeh images better because it can distinguish the main object and the background.
Single Front Camera
Unlike the Samsung Galaxy S10+ series which already features a dual selfie camera, the Samsung Galaxy S10 still uses a single 10 MP camera.
Not yet 5G
Like other Samsung flagships, the device will also be an option to use for the next two or three years. Unfortunately this device does not yet support 5G technology, whereas it seems that this technology will be implemented soon.
