Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus price

When the Samsung Galaxy S10+ was first released in 2019, it was on sale for an eye-watering £899. Unfortunately, the Samsung 10+ has since been discontinued by Samsung, so you won't be able to buy the device from Samsung brand new.

Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus screen size

There's no doubt that there are newer models that have been released since the Galaxy S10 Plus that offer better screen sizes like the S24 range, S23 and so forth, but the Samsung 10+ is a decent contender if you're after a low-budget device. 

It has a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display with a 93.1% screen-to-body ratio, so you can look forward to more immersive and uninterrupted content. 

Even though the Samsung S10 Plus size may not be the best out there anymore, it will do the job so you can catch up on your favourite videos or play games wherever you are!

Samsung S10 Plus camera

The Samsung S10 Plus camera specs are pretty impressive to say the model is now 5 years old. You can still expect high-quality selfies and you can count on the main camera and features such as Live Focus to do your photos justice. 

The Samsung S10 Plus has a 10MP front camera and a triple-lens main camera with a 16MP ultra-wide lens, a 12MP regular lens and a 12MP telephoto lens. 

Don't be fooled by the age of the device, the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus camera is a stand-out feature on the Samsung Galaxy 10+.

Samsung S10+ processor

If you decide to buy Samsung S10 Plus, you can expect a powerful device… as we've already mentioned, it may not be as powerful as newer models, but you can count on it for impressive downloading speeds and performance. 

The UK models of the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus run on the Exynos 9820 processor, whereas the US runs on Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 chip. 

The Samsung S10 Plus phone's battery is also pretty impressive. It is packed with a huge 4,100mAh battery which will last all day, and it even has wireless charging, so forget about carrying around your charger. 

Plus, Samsung's Wireless PowerShare feature means the back of the Galaxy S10 Plus turns into a Qi charging mat. It's never been easier to charge your phone!

Is Samsung S10 Plus worth it?

So is the Galaxy S10 Plus a good phone in 2024? Even though the Samsung Galaxy S10+ is a handy budget-friendly device… there's a catch. The Galaxy S10 range, including the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus, no longer receives security updates from Samsung. 

The last update was in 2023, so if you're considering buying the Samsung S10 Plus for a loved one or for yourself, this is a major factor to consider as it could put the device at risk and eventually it will become a lot slower.
