The Samsung Galaxy S10+ is finally here! The smartphone launched just a couple of days ago and is now arguably the best Android smartphone if not the best smartphone you can buy right now.
The Galaxy S10+ is an upgrade of the Galaxy S9+. Samsung has included some pretty neat features on the S10+ and it is indeed a worthy upgrade.
So, how much does the S10+ cost?
The base version (8GB+128GB) goes for Ksh. 105,999 while the fully loaded
version (12GB+512GB) goes for a Ksh. 127,999. The launch prices are pretty high-end
but still pretty much the standard of what you pay for premium smartphones.
At that price point, if you are interested in the S10+ you should also check out the iPhone XS Max (Ksh 134,999) and the Huawei Mate 20 Pro (Ksh. 99,999).
If you found the price of the S10+ exciting, read on to get a quick run through of the features of the devices, if not, be sure to check out our latest list of the best smartphones under Ksh. 20,000. Haha!
Display Size: 6.4 inches
Display Type: Dynamic AMOLED
Screen Resolution: 1440 x 3040 pixels
Screen Resolution Density: 526 ppi
Corning Gorilla Glass 6
So, with the S10+ its all about the display. Samsung runs
the best smartphone display manufacturing business (P.S. Apple sources from
them) and thus it was pretty much expected that the S10+ will have the best
display in the game.
Samsung didn’t disappoint. You get a 6.4 inches display that has a 1440 x 3040-pixel resolution.
The display is gorgeous and you get more then what you pay for. In addition to
this, you the S10+ display comes with the Corning Gorilla Glass 6 to offer an
extra layer of protection.
Dimensions: 157.6 x 74.1 x 7.8 mm
Operating System: Android 9.0 (Pie)
CPU: 2.7 GHz Octa-core
Internal Memory: 128/512 GB
Micro SD: Yes, up to 512GB
The Samsung Galaxy S10+ is complete badass when it comes to its performance profile. A 2.7 GHz Octa-core chipset powers the smartphone and this is coupled with some 8GB or 12GB RAM. I am currently using a 6GB RAM smartphone and its performance is blazing and I can’t just imagine what 12GB of RAM can do for you.
About the performance, the S10+ is optimized for gaming, online gaming to be specific. The smartphone can therefore handle graphic intensive games such Fortnite and PUBG flawlessly and thus can serve well as the ultimate gaming machine.
The S10+ runs Android 9.0 (Pie)
out of the box and will mostly likely receive Android 10 once Google makes that
On the storage, you choose between 128 or 512 GB as internal memory. That capacity is in itself quite generous and should be able to meet the storage need of a typical power user.
Rear Camera: 12+12+16 MP
Secondary Camera: 10+8 MP
The Samsung Galaxy S10+ packs
three cameras. We have a 12MP (Wide), a 12MP (Telephoto) and a 16MP
The two wide camera, do just that,
enhance the field of view of the camera. About the Telephoto camera, that’s
about being able to capture awesome image of distant subject. Samsung did a
great job with the camera software and the camera is able to automatically
switch between the three cameras.
Battery and Extras
Battery Capacity: Li-Ion 4100 mAh
A 4100 mAh battery powers the Samsung Galaxy S10+. A 4100 mAh battery is quite large and could easily last a day or two while moderate usage. The smartphone also supports wireless fast charging.
Price in Kenya
The Samsung Galaxy S10+ has a suggested retail price of Ksh. 105,999 in Kenya.
