When it comes to technical pros and cons, the Samsung Galaxy S10e is an economical version of the brand's S10 flagship, doing away with its mother model's relatively innovative in-screen ultrasonic fingerprint reader and instead offering an edge-mounted capacitive sensor . It also comes with no more than 3100mAh of raw battery power , which, for a phone running on a premium-tier engine (We'll examine that further down this specs-based review), sounds unpromising -- don't forget to check out the fastest smartphones listed here on Phonerated.

Another slight con is the fact that the S10e's 5.8-inch screen settles for a 2280 x 1080 FHD+ definition only , consequently sounding lackluster compared to the 2K-1440p displays boasted by some of the best phablets available as of its release. That said, display technologies like HDR10+ content support and the Dynamic AMOLED notch-less screen design somewhat make the forenamed downgrade a tad tolerable.

As mentioned earlier, the Galaxy S10e's Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 7nm octa-core engine made it one of the fastest smartphones as of its market entry. It is composed of a single-core performance cluster peaking at 2.84GHz, a triple-core cluster tuned at 2.41GHz, and a quad-core efficiency cluster running at 1.78GHz. Moreover, its 8GB maximum RAM count was easily a flagship-tier pro as of this write-up -- check out a few other 8GB-RAM contenders here.

Storage-wise, the S10e offers a respectable 256GB native memory (Samsung also ships a 128GB variant), which can be expanded by up to 512GB. It also touts an IP68-rated water-resistant exterior , just like its S10 and S10+ big brothers.

As for its imaging pros and cons, the S10e's dual rear camera (12-megapixel wide-angle cam + 16-megapixel ultra-wide cam) is a downgrade over the S10's triple-lens setup , although features like HDR10+ and 4K-2160p video-recording nevertheless place it within 2019 high-end territory. Its 10-megapixel selfie camera, which sits on the top-right corner of the screen, sounds passable as well, especially with dual pixel autofocus tagging along.

Coated in colors like Canary Yellow and Flamingo Pink, the Galaxy S10e is an upmarket 5.8-incher for users who are all about performance and photography.
