With the Galaxy S series, Samsung has typically played in a more ultra premium space, competing with Apple’s top end products. But in 2020, the company is adopting a new strategy, it is introducing ‘Lite’ variants for flagships in the S and Note series. With the Galaxy S10 Lite, there’s another refreshing change. This one comes with the Snapdragon 855 processor in India, instead of an Exynos chipset that we typically see cover samsung alpha bumper on the high end Galaxy phones.
In India, the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite is priced at Rs 39,999, which makes it a direct competitor for mid premium phones like the popular OnePlus 7, 7T and Oppo Reno series. When iphone 5s cover strane I first heard the price, iphone 7 cover ysl I was intrigued, given this makes a very appealing proposition, especially if cover samsung galaxy s4 unicorno one were to consider all the specifications and features that Samsung was offering. This is a mix of glass and plastic, so it is not as premium as the S10 series, which has a glass body, but then it also makes the phone lighter and more durable, which I appreciate, given the 6.7 inch display is a little big for my comfort zone.

For the display, Samsung has gone for a flat panel, rather than the custodia cover samsung a50 dual curved screens we typically see on the high end S series. This is a huawei mate 20 hoesje full HD+ resolution AMOLED screen, and not QHD+ resolution, which is another downgrade. But this does not hamper the visual experience. The S10 Lite continues with the punch hole display and the front camera is bang in the centre.
Wondering about the Samsung Galaxy S20 series Read our first impressions here.
The screen is excellent on this phone, and this really comes as no surprise. It is vibrant with sharp colours. But I did find myself ramping up the brightness, when I watched an entire season of Sabrina, because at times the auto brightness level was not to my satisfaction. For daily use, you can keep brightness to a minimum. The Galaxy S10 Lite also sports an in display fingerprint sensor, which is fairly accurate and unlocks the device quickly.

Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite: Camera Talk

The regular shots with the camera are also detailed with reasonable colour accuracy and there is minimal noise. But there is a tendency to overexpose the edges, especially when clicking photos of bright coloured flowers, etc. Even the night mode is not bad, and adds brightness to photos and ensures that the object remains sharp and in focus. Still there is noise in some of the photos at the edges, especially when taking selfies in the night mode and this could do with some improvement.

The ultra wide mode also works well, cover samsung a6 2016 telefono and there’s no drastic amazon cover samsung j5 2017 drop in quality. The angle does appear a bit odd. You can also record videos in the ultra wide mode as well. The Macro mode delivered crisp results as well, and managed to keep details intact when you get close to the subject. The selfie camera is good. The Live Focus, however, could be better when tally weijl cover iphone 5c it comes to edge detection given this is a premium phone.

My only problem with the camera would be the user interface, which needs some cleaning up. Figuring out some of the modes is not easy, and Samsung should perhaps not keep the Night Mode iphone 7 8 hoesje hidden away. Also there were a few instances when the camera just did not respond, and kept telling me that it could not iphone x camera cover zoom custodia cover samsung s4 in that particular mode I cover tattoo iphone 6 was not even trying to zoom into an object.
