2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Looks chic and robust for its price - the front is a modern, water-drop notch, 6.2-inch panel, and the back is glossy plastic
  • Decent, contrast-rich, 6.2-inch IPS display
  • Packs Samsung's new One UI, which is one of the more streamlined and refined Android skins out there, and includes a nice, intuitive gesture navigation system
  • Good, solid performance for the price bracket, with a Samsung Exynos 7884 at the core - you will get smooth daily performance, as well as smooth gameplay in casual to mid-end games
  • The single rear-facing 13MP camera takes decent-looking pictures, for the price bracket (though detail, sharpness levels, and dynamic range could have been better)
  • The 5MP front camera is also ok for the price (though again exposure levels and image noise could be better)
  • Decent mono speaker

2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • The glossy back is of course also a fingerprint magnet
  • No notification LED
  • No fingerprint sensor (there is face unlock though, which works reasonably well)
  • No auto brightness sensor
  • No compass
  • Overall, the A10 is just an average phone from Samsung in what is now a pretty competitive price bracket - it misses out on key things like an auto-brightness sensor, and a compass, and so comes out as weak competition to the segment leaders from Xiaomi and Realme

Expert Reviews
  1. An appealing device if you're after a taste of Samsung's enjoyable user experience but middling abilities across the board, paired with competition from the likes Xiaomi and Motorola mean you should think before you buy

  2. The Galaxy A10 offers plenty of power for the money, but Samsung has compromised in too many areas for us to recommend it
