What Makes the Galaxy S10 Series so Special?

Samsung’s latest smartphone series has gained a lot of attention for its long battery life, its beautiful display and its decision to keep a headphone jack. These are all impressive qualities, but there is one feature that makes these smartphones real contenders in a competitive market: their cameras.

The Specs?

Galaxy S10e:

  • Front-facing: 100 MP Selfie Camera
  • Rear-facing: 2MP Wide-angle Camera, 16MP Ultra Wide Camera

The phones come with exciting features like Live Focus, which allows users to play with the depth of field and modify it further with different filters. If you want to stand out, your photo can let everything else fade into the background. With the click of a button, you just made yourself a stellar headshot.

Another feature that users will get excited about is Shot Suggestion, which guides you into taking the best picture possible. Using the feature can help you follow the rule of thirds and get a professional composition before you snap the pic.

The Reviews?

DxOMark is considered the ultimate source for rating the image-quality of smartphone and camera lenses. The site named the Samsung Galaxy S10Plus one of the top smartphone cameras currently on the market, putting it in the ranks of the Huawei Mate 20 Pro AND p20 Pro. The review gave the camera a total score of 109 for photography and video.

The YouTube channel Boredatwork tested out the Samsung Galaxy S10’s super steady video and compared it to action shots taken with an iPhone XS Max. While running and walking, the iPhone’s video looked shaky while the Galaxy S10’s content was consistently smooth. The difference between the two cameras is clear. The review concluded that the feature was amazing.

The Problems?

There will always be criticisms and complaints to drown out the praise. The addition of multiple cameras could present difficulties for phone protection and some reviewers have already griped that the front-facing cameras look distracting on the screen.

Instead of getting a basic case that could cover the fantastic features, get a skin customized to work with the improved camera design. You can easily find the coolest skins for the new Galaxy S10 and its companions that give you the intensive protection you need, along with the unique style you crave. Get an eye-catching design like red dragon scale, white marble or black carbon fiber.

When it comes to the distracting front-facing camera, you can hide the camera cutout by going into Settings and clicking on Full Screen Apps in the Display menu. There you’ll find the option for “Hide front camera.” It will expand the bezel, but you won’t have to see the front-facing camera (or two cameras) peeking out.

If you don’t want to go that far, the phone comes with a variety of wallpapers that are dark in the top corner. The cameras will quite literally blend into the background.

Anyone who loves to take pictures and videos should consider the Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10 or the Galaxy S10Plus as a possibility for their newest smartphone. You can take spotless selfies, mouthwatering food portraits and dazzling panorama shots. It doesn’t matter what you’re watching — these phones are going to make them look good.
