3 Reasons to Pre-Order the Galaxy S10 & 4 Reasons to Wait
Pre-ordering a Samsung Galaxy S10 might be tempting, but some of you are better off waiting a few more days or even a few more weeks before committing to one of the company’s new devices.
The Galaxy S10 is finally here. Samsung recently launched four new models including the Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+, the budget Galaxy S10e, and a fourth Galaxy S10 model, powered by 5G, that will launch later on this year.
Galaxy S10 rumors were mostly spot on. The trio of devices come with some exciting upgrades including beautiful displays, Android Pie with One UI, an in-display fingerprint sensor, souped up cameras, wireless charging, state of the art processors, and tons of storage.
On paper, the Galaxy S10 looks like solid competition for top devices like the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR, Pixel 3, Galaxy Note 9, and many others.
Samsung’s new flagships aren’t cheap, but they should be on your shopping list if you’re in the hunt for a new device in the early part of 2019.
You don’t have to wait to buy a Galaxy S10. Samsung and its partners have fired up pre-orders and the devices hit shelves in the United States and other regions later this week.
There are some benefits to pre-ordering a Galaxy S10. You can save a bunch of cash and you also get some freebies if you order within a certain amount of time. That said, there are also some reasons to hold out and wait.
In this guide we’ll take you through the best reasons to pre-order a Galaxy S10 and the best reasons to put your wallet away. For now.
Pre-Order If You Want the Galaxy S10 ASAP
If you've already decided to make one of the new Galaxy S10 models your next phone and you want it on your doorstep as soon as possible, you'll want to pre-order through Samsung, your carrier, or your favorite retailer.
Pre-ordering the Galaxy S10 today will ensure that you get the model you want, in the color you want, on the first day of availability.
That's March 8th for most models in the United States though the unlocked and carrier-locked variants of the 128GB Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ ship out the week of March 15th.
The Galaxy S10 release date might be March 8th, but some pre-orders are already showing up on doorsteps in the United States.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 probably won't sell out completely so there's no need to rush. Models that do sell out will likely return soon after the device's launch.
That said, if you want peace of mind and/or want a new phone in your hands right away, pick the option that best fits your needs and put in an order now.
