In terms of technical specs, the 2020 Galaxy S10 Lite is loosely based on the original Galaxy S10 -- we say loosely because there are a few stark differences between its mix of pros and cons and that offered by its mother model. Nevertheless, it looks to join Phonerated(')s list of the best smartphones for photography.
It hugely upgrades the S10(')s triple camera by throwing together a 48-megapixel primary lens , a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens, and a 5-megapixel lens for macro photography (The S10 touts two 12-megapixel lenses alongside a 16-megapixel wide-angle lens).
Its biggest cons come from the display front, particularly its 2400 x 1080 FHD+ screen sharpness , which makes it otherwise phablet-caliber 6.7-inch Super AMOLED Plus facade at tad underwhelming. As a consequence, it scores a mere 394ppi pixel density , whereas some of its rivals score as high as 500ppi.
Going back to its pros, the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite boasts a flagship-class Snapdragon 855 eight-core processor that peaks at 2.8GHz, lining itself up with some of the fastest smartphones available around the time of this technical review. Its engine is accompanied by either 8GB or 6GB of RAM, with a 128GB native taking charge of the storage front -- we would have loved at least twice that amount , though.
Perched right above its screen is a 32-megapixel f/2.2-aperture frontal camera , while a respectable 4500mAh battery takes charge of its power supply. Its color options include Prism White, Prism Blue, and Prism Black and it runs on the Android 10 platform out of the box.
With the kind of pros and cons that it brings to the table, the S10 Lite is not that light of a smartphone (when it comes to specs), mainly targeting mobile photographers and those who place a premium on performance.
