Those who say the best things in life are free have clearly never experienced Samsung's flagship Galaxy S10 Plus PHAblet.
Samsung certainly decided to celebrate the 10th year of the Galaxy S range in style during 2019, having launched its very first handset way back in March 2010.
While three devices were launched to commemorate the 10th generation of the Galaxy S range, it's undoubtedly the S10 Plus that has captured the imagination of customers. This handset includes everything you could ever want from a Samsung smartphone and has earnt a rating of, you guessed it, S10/10.
According to some reports, the tablet and phablet market continues to grow at a faster rate than the one for smartphones, thanks largely to flagship devices such as the S10+. This is no surprise considering the attention to detail that has gone into the design of the S10+, with an intricate screen-to-body ratio and an in-screen fingerprint sensor being just two highlights.
As screen sizes have increased over time, they 've also accounted for a larger share of the smartphone's mass. That's basic science. No Android handset has embodied this design principle better than the S10+, however, which boasts an optimal 93.1% screen-to-body ratio where the pixels stretch from the top speaker down to the thin bottom lip.
It's this sleek design that allows for a dynamic, 6.4-inch screen, while also shifting the small front camera to a convenient hole in the top corner of the handset. This has enabled Samsung to make the most of the real estate at their disposal.
The S10+ also features a cutting-edge, ultrasonic fingerprint sensor, which combines both accuracy and intricate design to spectacular effect. This unique sensor also performs a neat invisibility trick, as it's hidden beneath the sleek Gorilla Glass design and works by taking a 3D scan of your print.
Historically, the back of the phablet has been little more than redundant real estate, but this is something Samsung is looking to change. Enter the brand's new Wireless PowerShare technology which transforms the ample back of the S10+ into a large Qi charging mat. This provides a largely one-stop power source for various devices.
Incredibly, our refurbished S10+ phablets are also capable of charging iOS devices and smartphones, including the iPhone XS Max. This makes for a truly unique feature.
In the days of the S6 and the S7 Edge, Samsung's smooth as silk interface was underpinned by the TouchWiz UI technology. While this remains popular today, there's no doubt that Samsung has elevated and enhanced this technology in the form of the One UI interface. This sleek addition effectively lines up options and icons on the bottom half of the screen, making them easy to navigate and flick between as you please.
We'd probably all like to have a new and capacious battery installed from time to time, especially after a long and arduous week. Samsung are continuously striving to increase the battery power of the S series, and it's fair to say that they 've scaled new heights with the S10+ iteration.
In fact, this device includes a Li Ion battery with a whopping 4,100mAh capacity, which is capable of providing life during the day andthe night.
This device represents the pinnacle of Samsung design and the coveted S series, while there's no doubt that the Galaxy S10+ has redefined phablet functionality for the masses. From its intricate design and vast display to an exceptional camera and innovative Wireless PowerShare technology, the S10+ offers everything you 'd ever need.
