Wait If You Aren't Prepared
Press pause on a Galaxy S10 pre-order if you aren't prepared to buy a new phone. Simple as that.
If you aren't sure what kind of effect buying the Galaxy S10 will have on your data plan or your bank account, hold off until you're a thousand percent sure.
Before you commit to the Galaxy S10 you'll want to research the device's colors and their differences. You'll also want to dig into and go hands-on with top Galaxy S10 competitors, research your data needs, storage needs, 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 alternatives like the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S8, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus if you aren't married to Android, and older Android devices like the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL.
You'll also want to make a plan for your current device. Make sure you check re-sellers like Gazelle and sites like eBay and Craigslist. Again, Samsung is also offering a great trade-in deal and carriers will also offer their own deals.
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 see if someone needs a new phone.
You won't be able to get this done in an hour, let alone a day. For some of you, it might take weeks. You won't know until you start.
