Now if you were somehow able to stand all of that garbage I tooted, I'll give you my initial thoughts on the new Galaxy S10 lineup! :blobcatrainbow:

Basically I tried the S10 and S10+, but the one I was most interested about was the S10e. Being the smallest of the range and one of the smallest in the market overall, I couldn't help but wonder if it could still stay usable without any scaling, just using the preinstalled software with the default settings.

Nope. OneUI is bad. I can't reach either top or bottom easily. Forget about using this without constantly moving your hand up and down. It's not comfy at all.

If you ignore that, the S10 is definitely an interesting proposal. It's super slick, buttery smooth, all screen and all content, the camera on the corner is a good compromise. OneUI has neat ideas even if it sucks, particularly for the fact that the phones are too big. The cameras are impressive as expected. It's great stuff... as long as you don't mind the size and are willing to pay that premium price tag. Oh, and it still has a Bixby button. Make sure to change that if you get one.

(the two latter shots are done with an S10 and S10+, respectively)

(the phones shown in the second picture are the S10+, the S10e and my Xperia XZ2C)

Also fun fact.

EVERY SINGLE PHONE WAS AT ~69% BATTERY CHARGE.

Last notes: I'd have to play more with the phone, in particular with the cameras, to have a solid review. I feel like the default color processing is *very* wrong, but that will still work for 99'9% of people. For people who actually care, I'd have to check how good is stuff like the dynamic range and manual mode. Also I haven't recorded any video.

@espectalll the bixby button is configurable tho now. you can assign it to something that you want
