On pricing, I'm hoping the Samsung learn from Apple's drop in sales from pumping up price. Samsung may launch high to pick up the early adopters that will buy at any cost, but I would expect discounting to commence shortly after (unlike Apple where pricing remains unchanged).

And props to Samsung for retaining the 3.5mm aux jack. Apple and rest be damned!

Side finger print, I'll be interested to see how that would work, I'd imagine such a small sensor may affect reliability and speed of the unlock which I would be actively unhappy about. 

 

 

 

 

Sony was doing side fingerprint on the power button for years, it was really smart place to have it.  Only issue they had was it could not be used in the US for some reason (firmware level blocking on US models).

I'm obviously missing something, because I can't see much if anything whatsoever I'd upgrade my note 9 for. If this is roughly the spec of the Note 10, then I won't be getting that either. 


My current camera more than meets any requirements I have, relatively minor performance increases.. What am I missing?


 



Iโ€™ve always considered the S line as a beta for the real flagship being the Note.

Just saw this video:

Samsung managed to squeeze the same size screen of a Note 9 into a shorter body of S10+ with 100mAh more in battery size, I am impressed.

As the expected launch date for NZ is at the end of March, then I'll probably trade-in my S8+ and sign up for a two year finance agreement with Vodafone.

@mobilefun

has published a Hands-On Video of the S10 Plus. It shows an incredibly ugly screen protector with a hole in it. Don't worry, the S10 Prototypes I have seen came with a pre-installed screen protector without a hole in it. And yes the fingerprint still worked through it

Screen protectors became extremely difficult when the first curved screens appeared anyway.

I thought the same way, until I bought a ScreenKnight protector that worked beautifully with my S7 Edge, curve and all. It was a bit tricky to fit, but it was perfect. Until I cleaned it with isopropyl alcohol, and that misted it up.... ๐Ÿ˜‚

Plastic ones do work, I have one on my Note 9 but glass ones are all flawed in some way.

If anyone gets a s10 \ buds bundle and wants to sell the buds let me know. Looking to upgrade my current buds but holding out until the note 10 for the phone upgrade.

On a related note looking for a Galaxy s8 (or s9 if cheap enough) for the mrs so if anyone is upgrading from one to the s10 let me know.

I wonder if Samsung will do special trade ins again through Ingram Micro.
