  • 1Description

Say goodbye to the 'notch' and hello to Infinity-O, the Galaxy S10e SM-G970U 128GB Smartphone from Samsung features the nearly bezel-less, all-screen Infinity-O display. To help push the screen from edge-to-edge, Samsung laser-cut a hole in the front corner of the display to accommodate the 10MP dual-pixel wide-angle selfie camera. The screen itself is a big 5.8" Dynamic AMOLED Infinity Display. It's also certified to support HDR10+ for a cinematic experience and is designed to produce brilliant and realistic images.

On the reverse of the S10e, you'll find Samsung's pro-grade dual-camera array. It includes 16MP ultra-wide and 12MP dual-pixel wide-angle cameras. With a lens for almost every situation, Samsung added AI to make sure they give you the best results possible. The S10e can detect up to 30 scenes and auto-optimize settings for each as well as give you the opportunity to play with a variety of graphic effects in real time. Want video instead? Both front and back cameras can capture at 4K UHD quality, with the rear array adding support for HDR10+ recording.

Running the Android 9.0 Pie operating system, this phone is powered by a Snapdragon 855 Octa-Core processor and 6GB of RAM. You can store your ultra-wide images, 4K videos, and more on 128GB of built-in storage, which can be expanded via an (optional) microSD card up to 512GB in size.

By learning how you use your phone over time, Pie will automatically adjust certain features for you, such as battery usage and display brightness.

Samsung SM-G970UZKAXAA Reviews

Galaxy S10e SM-G970U 128GB Smartphone (Unlocked, Prism Black) is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 34.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from TERRIBLE PRODUCT DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE. there is NO WAY to disable skin smoothing on ALL of your photos. This phone is 100% WORTHLESS. a "feature" technical support says cannot be removed! even when you disable beauty face, the phone still applies TONS of post processing to the images which BLURS EVERYTHING. most of the photos i take look like they are out of focus (WHEN THEY ARE NOT), or like things are motion blurred (WHEN THEY ARE NOT MOVING). its utter trash. literally WORSE than the old garbage S5 I came from. if you are buying this phone expecting a decent camera, look elsewhere. samsung = garbage. i knew i never should have bought another samsung.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great phone! I recently purchased this phone after having the Galaxy Note 8 for some time and it is quite a difference! The size is more to my liking and the storage is amazing in comparison to the Note 8. Love the reflection the white gives off and the side fingerprint is so seamless. The camera feature of wide angle and regular shot is awesome! Definitely recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just about the best phone on the market. Almost the perfect device. Great specs, great display, stereo speakers sound nice. The two cameras are outstanding, and I don’t miss the zoom setup from the higher end phones. It is water resistant and manages to keep a headphone jack; I still don’t understand how any manufacturer could justify omitting it. However Samsung UI is pretty intrusive, Bixby is annoying and useless, and so are the rest of pre installed Samsung apps. Samsung did not include eUFS 3.0 storage which will almost certainly make it to next Galaxy Note. The phone’s back rattles at high volumes. Samsung only supports their flagships for 2 years, which makes their ever-increasing price harder and harder to justify. Especially when they’re charging as much as Apple, who support their phones for far longer. Overall, I'm looking forward to using the Galaxy 10e for the next couple of years and I’ll see where the phone market is at then. But something tells me that Samsung won’t win my undying loyalty with this one.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great design. That's it. I had this phone for a week. The design is great: size, screen, bezels, materials. That's where the good things stop. I am coming from years of Nexus and Pixel phones with clean, stock Android. I do not understand Samsung's need to shove down my throat bloatware and duplicate services like Samsung Pass, Pay, Phone, Camera, One UI, etc. I prefer the similar services from Google which are part of pure Android. The Samsung apps cannot be removed and they're simply annoying. The Google Phone and Camera apps cannot be installed on this Samsung phone. In my opinion, they're much better than their Samsung counterparts, Battery life is horrible. I am a light user and the battery struggles to keep up. Overall, I am not impressed. After all, this is just a temporary phone until 5G arrives.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sleek and Intuituve The s10e is lightweight, slim and just the right size. The ONE ui is fast, intuitive and personal. Highly recommend this phone to anyone.
Date published: 2019-05-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best of the whole S10 lineup I love the size of this phone, easy to work with a single hand. The screen is gorgeous, it's hard to take my eyes off of the phone, especially with the night mode. The fingerprint scanner is super fast, though it would be great if it is located just a tad lower. I absolutely have zero regrets on the decision to buy this phone. And Bixby is the dumbest "smart" assistant ever!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Only More Time Will Tell... This is a preliminary review as I've just been using the Galaxy S10e for only a week (I'll update this review after using the phone for a longer period). As a reference point for this review I'm coming from a Galaxy S7 that I loved using until the LCD display inexplicably died after just 2 1/2 years! Initial Likes: Thankfully, restoring my Galaxy S7's backup to my new S10e worked great. The S10e's display is very bright and has excellent resolution. The S10e's processor is noticeably faster than that of the S7, permitting faster multi-tasking between apps. The new fingerprint sensor and face recognition work very well (contrary to some of the negative reviews as to the location of the fingerprint sensor when holding the phone with one's left hand I find it works rather well with my left index finger). Initial Dislikes: I'm very disappointed that Samsung got rid of the blinking LED on the lock screen to alert you of new notifications as well as the % battery remaining! The speaker phone does not seem to be as clear or as loud as my S7 was. Although the S10's camera is an improvement over the S7's camera (which was already pretty good), it's operation is overyly complex compard to the S7's camera operation!
