Samsung Galaxy A10s
Samsung Galaxy A10s is a modern smartphone that allows you to take superb photos and provides amazing performance.
The Galaxy A10s is mostly a scaled up of Galaxy A10 and is a dual-sim smartphone with 2 nano-sim slots.
Samsung Galaxy A10s debuted in September 2019.
Galaxy A10s sports a 6.2 inch Super IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen and has a resolution of 720×1520 pixels with an aspect ratio of 19:9, which means it has a sharp pixel density of 271 ppi.
The display is sharp enough so that you don’t see any pixelization in regular use.
Body and Design
The Samsung Galaxy Galaxy A10s is made out of Glass front, plastic body and it feels like one sturdy, well-constructed device. Yet at the same time it also has a thin profile and feels elegant, with slight curves for a better feeling in the hand.
It does not feel as brittle as a glass phone, the back does not get all dirty with fingerprint smudges and you can even risk using it without a case without fearing that the slightest drop would shatter the back of the phone and incur costly repairs.
Visually it looks spot on, with modern iconography and elements well chosen to work together, it looks beautiful.
The handset measures 156.9 x75.8×7.8mm
The fingerprint scanner is placed at the back.
The Galaxy A10s comes with dual cameras of 13MP and 2MP on its back and that might be one of its most impressive features. The cameras work together to create Portrait shots, or as Samsung calls it, Live Focus.
You get a 13-megapixel f/1.8 main shooter and a 2-megapixel f/2.4 secondary camera, while up front there is a single 8-megapixel camera and a dedicated .
The phone sports Mediatek MT6762 Helio P22 (12 nm) with 2.0 GHz of clock speed.
The PowerVR manages all tasks and even games, but it runs with a noticeable stutter and makes you wait an extra second for apps and games to load and for things to move.
It has 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage. It also has a dedicated expandable storage slot that allows up to 512 GB.
It packs a non-removable 4000 mAh Li-Po battery. The battery provides a talk time of up to 23 hours on a 4G network.
Charging it once daily is enough for the A10s to handle all the regular activities of the day.
A10s comes with the full range of connectivity options with GSM, HSPA and 4G LTE. It also has Assisted GPS, GLONASS, BDS, and Bluetooth 5.0, A2DP, LE.
The A10s sports the Android 9.0 Pie, which is the latest major release of Android.
- Class-leading battery life
- Excellent display all around
- Good image quality, superb selfie camera
- Two nano-sim slots.
- Dedicated memory card slot
- Excellent build quality
- Very limited video recording feature set – no 4K and no stabilization, 1080p was better on the non-plus
- A more powerful chipset would have been appreciated
- Slow charger in the box, overall not very fast charging even with a better adapter
- An earlier version of the Android operating system
- The fingerprint sensor is sluggish.
The Samsung Galaxy A10s is a device is for anyone who wants to have an A50, A40 but doesn’t have that kind of money. At around half the price of the flagship, you get quite a lot of features that offer a similar experience with the flagship.
