Galaxy S10 vs Galaxy S8: Worth the Upgrade?

Published

on

The Samsung Galaxy S10 release date is only a few weeks away and it’ll certainly be worth waiting for. Especially if you’re upgrading from something like the Galaxy S8. If you’re looking to trade in your phone for something new, here’s our Galaxy S10 vs Galaxy S8 comparison for potential buyers.

We’ll go over everything we know so far, the latest leaks, and what’s new on the Galaxy S10. Basically, what makes it worth buying and what you should expect.

Samsung’s all-new Galaxy S10 delivers a bigger edge-to-edge display, no bezels, triple rear cameras, a camera cutout in the screen, blazingly fast performance and much longer battery life. Here’s why you should or shouldn’t wait for it.

This is the Galaxy S10E and regular S10

In 2018 Samsung released the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+. Both phones had big curved screens with powerful cameras and a sleek design, and while they were great, not much changed compared to the Galaxy S8. They were almost identical. Nothing really changed on the Galaxy Note 9 either. Which is why a lot of people still have a Galaxy S8.

This year though, the Galaxy 10 has some major changes. From the screen sizes, fingerprint scanners, battery life, up to five cameras and more. Changes worth paying for.

Samsung is actually releasing at least three different Galaxy S models in 2019. Those being a Galaxy S10E (or Lite), the regular S10, a slightly bigger Galaxy S10+, and potentially a massive 6.7-inch 5G-powered Galaxy X. We’ll only focus on the regular model, although Galaxy S8 owners might be happy with the S10 Lite, honestly.

If you’re still rocking an older Galaxy and are trying to decide if these new phones are right for you, this is the right place. Our slideshow below has tons of helpful information, comparisons, pricing info and details for buyers or those planning to upgrade.

Galaxy S10 vs Galaxy S8: Display

If you have a Galaxy S8 or the Galaxy S8 Plus, upgrading to the Galaxy S10 will be a pretty big upgrade. Even if you don't want a bigger phone, you'll still love the options available. Plus, you'll get a bigger screen in a device that's the same size. 

  • Galaxy S8 has a 5.8-inch Quad-HD Curved AMOLED Display
  • Galaxy S10 has a bigger 6.1-inch Quad-HD Curved AMOLED Display
  • or, get the Galaxy S10 Lite with a 5.8-inch flat display

The S10 has a punch-hole cutout in the screen to house the front-facing camera (but no notch, like an iPhone)

This year the regular Galaxy S10 will be roughly the exact same size as the Galaxy S8 and S9, only with a bigger screen. That's because they've removed the black bar (bezels) on the top and bottom (well, made them thinner) and stretched the screen further to the sides. Plus, the camera is inside the screen, with a circle cutout around it. That's how they delivered a bigger screen in the same space. Basically, it'll feel the same in your hands only be bigger and better. 

Plus, there is a cheaper Galaxy S10E with a 5.8-inch FLAT screen coming too, which some buyers may be interested in. Just keep that in mind. 

Also, there's no fingerprint scanner on the back, up by the camera, in a hard to reach spot either. This year Samsung put a super fancy ultrasonic fingerprint sensor inside the screen. Yes, under the display. You'll simply touch the screen near the bottom middle, and it'll unlock securely and safely. If you've enjoyed several Samsung phones, you'll feel right at home with the fingerprint scanner in the front like old times. 

The bigger screen, in-display fingerprint scanner, and punch-hole cutout for the camera are the biggest changes to the slightly larger 6.1-inch screen in the Galaxy S10. Well, that and the highly improved cameras.
