As Samsung’s flagship smartphones in 2019, Galaxy S10 (include Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10+, and Galaxy S10 5G) packs the latest technology Samsung has or can access. So, you can expect some exciting new features of the Galaxy S10.
It is impractical to discuss all new features of Galaxy S10 in one post because of the long list of the new features of Galaxy S10. For the hardware specifications, you may check this post. For Galaxy S10 layout, you may check this guide.
In this post, we will explain the top 10 most exciting new features of Galaxy S10 most owners will enjoy: Dynamic AMOLED with HDR 10+, Infinity O display, ultrasonic in-display fingerprint scanner, Bixby Routine, ultrawide camera, wireless PowerShare, Android Pie and One UI, Digital wellbeing, recording 4K UHD video with HDR 10+, and fast wireless charging 2.0.
Of course, Galaxy S10 is far from perfect. There are also some disappointing and missing features of Galaxy S10 as discussed here.
The most exciting new feature of Galaxy S10: Dynamic AMOLED with HDR10+
Samsung flagship phones traditionally have the best display. No other smartphone makers can match Samsung when the display is discussed.
In Galaxy S10, Samsung updates its Super AMOLED to Dynamic AMOLED.
So, All four Galaxy S10 devices (Galaxy s10e, Galaxy S10, Galaxy s10+, and Galaxy S1o 5G) all have a Dynamic AMOLED screen.
This AMOLED is somewhat different (and better) from the screen in Galaxy S9 and other Galaxy phones.
In a nutshell, the Dynamic AMOLED on Galaxy S10 supports:
- Higher brightness (up to 1200 nits peak luminance). You can use the screen even directly under the sunlight.
- Larger dynamic range. From black to white, you can see more “colors”.
- HDR10+. In addition to static dynamic metadata, HDR10+ also supports dynamic metadata. Therefore the brightness boundaries can be set and changed on a frame-by-frame basis. Galaxy S10 (all models) is the only smartphone certified with HDR10+ up to now (February 2019).
- Lower blue light emission. You will feel more comfortable to use the screen in all lighting conditions. Galaxy S10 screen (all models) was certified by TÜV Rheinland.
Dynamic AMOLED is probably the most exciting new features of Galaxy S10. It is available in all four models: Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10+, and Galaxy S10 5G.
The most innovative workaround of Galaxy S10: Infinity O display
All smartphone manufacturers are working hard to reducing the bezels.
But there is a limit because of the front-facing cameras.
So far, to solve this problem, other smartphone manufacturers follow iPhone X: using a notch, which can be quite ugly (subjective).
Samsung finds an innovative workaround for this issue: punch a hole for the front-facing cameras. It looks far better than the notches.
And in Galaxy S10, Samsung calls it infinity O display. All 4 Galaxy s10 models use infinity O display. Galaxy S10+ and Galaxy S10 5G get a bigger (and elongated) “hole”.
If you are not a fan of the punched hole, … Read the rest
