- Analysis by KJ David
Announced during the first quarter of 2019, the Samsung Galaxy A10 is a smartphone hovering between the entry-level and mid-range categories, at least insofar as our review of its technical pros and cons is concerned. Its biggest flaws include some old-fashioned cameras. At the back, it touts a 13-megapixel f/1.9-aperture main cam that sounds lackluster versus the dual-lens setups boasted by some high-class photography models and a few imaging-driven mid-rangers. Up front, it has a 5-megapixel-only selfie camera whose raw pixel resolution underscores its budget-class specs profile.
A couple more of the Galaxy A10's cons reside under the hood, in the form of a 2GB-only RAM working hand-in-hand with an Exynos 7844 eight-core 1.6GHz engine that won't be putting it on Phonerated's list of high-tier eight-core smartphones any time soon, since most models on the said list run on 2.2GHz (or higher) engines.
Another slight drawback is its low-key (by 2019 Q1 standards) 32GB internal memory, although its accompanying support for up to 512GB's worth of extra storage winds up as a solid pro in our book.
The A10 sports a relatively-wide, but still budget-class, 6.2-inch HD+ (1520 x 720) display crafted with Samsung's Infinity-V design concept. Many of the best phablets around have tantamount screen solutions, but boast sharper definitions. It feeds off a 3400mAh battery , which, relative to its aforementioned pros and cons, sounds more than passable to us, especially since a good number of similarly-specked models fail to reach the 3000mAh threshold.
Rounding things out is the Android 9.0 Pie operating system skinned with Samsung's self-branded Samsung One UI, with Red, Blue, and Black being its color options.
At the end of the day, the Galaxy A10 does not look to turn heads specs-wise, but it does cater to pragmatists who want a wide-screen phone with a high external memory support and a respectable battery.
