How to use items of Galaxy S10 box contents?
Of course, each item in the Galaxy S10 box is for you to use and enjoy the phone.
#1. The Galaxy S10 box
The box should be sealed by Samsung or a local distributor.
The seal is to indicate this is an unopened package. If it is a pre-owned S10, it should be stated clearly in the box.
#2. The Phone (Galaxy S10, S10+, or S10e)
The phone is the main and the most expensive item in the Galaxy S10 box.
In most regions, for Galaxy S10, and S10+, a plastic screen protector has been pasted on the screen already. It is not the normal protective film.
If you plan to use a screen protector on Galaxy S10, or S10+, you need to know that many tempered glass screen protectors do NOT work with the in-display fingerprint sensor (see this page), therefore Samsung applied this plastic screen protector for you before you can find a compatible screen protector. You may check this guide on how to use Galaxy S10 in-display fingerprint scanner to unlock Galaxy S10.
For Galaxy S10e, the fingerprint is mounted on the power button, and therefore all screen protector should work with the phone. This is the reason why Samsung does not give a screen protector for Galaxy S10e.
All new Galaxy S10 phones should have about 50-60% battery. You can charge the battery after finishing the setup, or charge the battery before using the phone.
