Earlier this year, Samsung confirmed four versions of the Galaxy S10. Three of those devices, the Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+, and Galaxy S10e launched in March and are available on multiple carriers in the United States and on various carriers around the world.
The devices come with an assortment of bells and whistles and they should be on your shopping list if you’re hunting for a new smartphone in 2019.
Samsung also confirmed a fourth version of the Galaxy S10 dubbed Galaxy S10 5G. The Galaxy S10 5G is a high-end version of the flagship and it comes with a unique set of features including faster wireless speeds.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 5G is available in South Korea and the United States and the device will hit an assortment of other places in the weeks ahead.
Verizon was the first carrier to stock the phone when it released the device back in May.
AT&T launched the phone for business customers on June 17th. The device works with the carrier’s mmWave 5G network which it calls “5G+.” The carrier says caps 5G speeds at 2Gbps.
There are plenty of reasons to consider buying the Galaxy S10 5G. 5G speeds are part of it but you’ll also get a bigger display, faster wireless charging, and a few other perks.
Of course, there are also some reasons to think about going with another device. The other three Galaxy S10 models are top notch and the Galaxy S10 5G has a few limitations you need to be aware of.
In this guide we’ll take you through the best reasons to buy and the best reasons to forget about the Galaxy S10 5G and go with something else.
Great Battery Life
If you want top of the line battery life, buy the Galaxy S10 5G.
The Galaxy S10 5G comes with a larger battery than the other Galaxy S10 models. The Galaxy S10+ sports a 4100mAh battery while the Galaxy S10 5G comes with a much larger 4,500mAh battery. That's a 12.5% difference.
We haven't spent a ton of time with the Galaxy S10 5G yet, but those who have say the difference between the two is noticeable.
One reviewer claims his Galaxy S10 5G still had around 50% battery remaining at the end of the day. That means some users will be able to squeeze in two days of use before having to throw it on a charger. That's downright impressive.
We'll have to wait and see how the device performs long-term, but early signs are very good.
