Wait If You Aren't Prepared
Hit pause on a Galaxy S10 5G pre-order if you aren't prepared to spend $1300 on a new phone.
If you aren't sure what kind of effect buying the device will have on your data plan or your bank account, hang back and wait until you're hundred percent sure about the move. You don't want buyers remorse.
Before you commit to buying the phone, you'll want to go hands-on with top Galaxy S10 5G competitors, research your data needs, storage needs, decide which color you like best, and look into rival carriers and see if you might want to switch.
You'll also want to take a look at cheap Galaxy S10 5G alternatives like the Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S9, Galaxy S8, Pixel 3, and others. If you aren't married to Android, make sure you take a look at the iPhone as well.
You'll also want to make a plan for your current phone. Make sure you check re-sellers like Gazelle and sites like eBay and Craigslist. Verizon is offering a nice trade-in but you might be able to get more somewhere else.
If you don't need the extra cash, you should look into donating the device. If you'd rather keep it in-house, get in touch with friends and family and check if someone needs a new device. Remember to wipe it clean before you give it away.
