Here’s Why Samsung’s Galaxy S10+ Is The Android Game Changer That Apple Fears

A sight for sore eyes

Even the most unyielding of iPhone devotees will cede that Samsung’s new Dynamic AMOLED displays are the best anyone has ever seen. It’s a fair summation since these are the only smartphones to earn HDR10+ certification. Plus Samsung’s newest screens reduce harmful blue light so you get all the benefits of Night Mode without the inherent discolouration.

Offered in both 128GB (RM3,699) and 512GB (RM4,599), don’t forget the Galaxy S10+ supports microSD expansion too. Sauntering down the street with 1TB of storage in your phone? Not even a stretch for any Galaxy user. In addition, you still get a 3.5mm headphone jack, Bixby 2.0 (Samsung’s version of Google Assistant or Siri), a heart rate sensor that works with the Samsung Health app to monitor blood pressure, and stream audio to two different devices simultaneously with Bluetooth 5.0

And what about the newfangled fingerprint reader? It wakes the device by bouncing ultrasonic sound waves off the ridges on your fingertips. Flip this Android over and the your eyes just keep growing wider. On its back is a triple lens camera with Dual Pixel 12-megapixel lens and a 12-megapixel telephoto lens with a 16-megapixel ultra-wide lens for depth mapping. You can take both a regular and a zoomed in photo at the same time or record in true 960 FPS slow motion video.

With the top-of-the-line Galaxy S10+ offering 12GB of RAM, proceedings aren’t likely to slow down or heat up. Combined with Samsung’s new AI technology to harmonise battery, CPU usage, and device temperature, in additions to improvements on Android 9 Pie (One UI), the Snapdragon 855 processor, USF3 storage and WiFi 6 protocalls, this will be one smooth device. For added reassurance, this phone is both dust and water resistant. In fact tests claim you can hold the S10+ user five feet of water for over 30 minutes. How’s that for taking the fight to Apple?
