2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 2 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Simple, basic polycarbonate design (it's not as premium though as some of its competitors)
  • Compact and sleek (especially for a device that packs a 4000 mAh battery) - good for one-handed use
  • Relatively light while still delivering good battery life
  • Decent fingerprint scanner on the rear
  • The back panel is prone to fingerprint smudges and you should ideally apply a cover

Display

  • One of the cheapest phones to come with a Super AMOLED display - the screen is vibrant and effective even in bright daylight - and this is a good phone to enjoy video content on

Software

  • Samsung's OneUI is one of the cleaner, more refined Android UIs at present

Performance

  • Decent all-round performance with the Exynos 7884 octa-core chipset (similar to Snapdragon 450) - day-to-day performance is reasonably smooth
  • Having said that, the competition in this segment is pretty tough, and you will get better performing phones from the Xiaomi and Realme competition

Camera

  • Decent rear dual-camera setup: 13-megapixel primary sensor + 5-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens
  • The primary camera captures good images in daylight
  • Both the rear and front cameras come with Live Focus mode so you can adjust the blur in the background even while clicking pictures
  • Focus speed is on the slow side
  • In lowlight conditions, the quality definitely goes down
  • While decent for the price, it's not quite the best camera phone for this price bracket - that award would go to the Xiaomis and Realmes of this range

Connectivity

  • Uses the modern Type-C USB charging port

Battery

  • Good battery life with a large 4000mAh battery - you will get about 1.5 days of moderate use
  • 15W fast charging support

Verdict

  • Overall, the Galaxy M10s is a good option for this price bracket if display quality is your primary criteria (you won't get an AMOLED display at this price elsewhere) - on the other hand, if you want to look at better all-round phones, with somewhat better cameras and performance, you can consider alternatives from Xiaomi and Realme

  1. If you are looking specifically for a Samsung device on a budget, the Galaxy M10s will do just fine....However, you should also consider options such as the Realme 5 or the Redmi Note 7S at this price level
