The newest cellphone sensation — the Samsung Galaxy Fold — will be hitting stores later this month. You won’t be able to escape the hype around it. But if you’re like many of us who can’t or don’t want to throw down $2,000 for this new device, you can get in on one of the S10 Galaxy phones — arguably the best Android phones out there, for half the price or less.
There are three models of this awesome phone available — S10e, S10 and S10+. Here’s a look at each to help you decide which one is best for you.
|Samsung Galaxy S10e||Those who don’t need a huge screen and are on a budget||$749|
|Samsung Galaxy S10||Those wanting a better camera||$899|
|Samsung Galaxy S10+||Those who have money, want the best of the best and take a lot of selfies||$999|
Samsung Galaxy S10e
The most affordable of the three S10 phones, the Samsung Galaxy S10e is also the smallest with the most basic features of them all. The benefit of this phone is that it’s the cheapest and is also more pocket-friendly than the others. Although it doesn’t match the cameras of the other two, it still takes awesome pictures.
The main ways that it is different from the more expensive S10 and S10+ are:
- Smaller screen (5.8 inch)
- One less camera on the back
- Slightly less battery life
Another great thing is that the S10e is more widely available, with more carriers stocking this phone than the other two.

Samsung Galaxy S10
The Samsung Galaxy S10 isn’t very different from the S10e. What you’ll be paying the extra $150 for is:
- Larger screen (6.1 inch)
- Extra 12MP telephoto camera on the back
- Slightly better battery: offering about 30 minutes additional battery life
The Galaxy S10 is great for those who want to be able to take better photos than the S10e can offer, but don’t want to carry around a huge phone. The addition of the telephoto camera on the S10 model allows you to take portrait photos and close-ups that look like they were taken using a professional camera.

Samsung Galaxy S10+
The Samsung Galaxy S10+ is for you if you have the money to spend and you’re not willing to sacrifice quality. You want the best photos, the best features, the best battery and the biggest screen. This model has:
- The biggest screen (6.4 inch), over half an inch larger than the S10e
- An extra 8MP selfie camera (two total)
- Three cameras on the back (like the S10)
- The longest battery life: About two hours longer than the S10
The cameras on this phone make it the best phone out of the three, if you don’t mind the size and the price tag. Not only will the three cameras on the back allow you to take the best photos in most scenarios, but the extra front-facing camera will give you the best selfies you’ve ever seen. The addition of the second selfie camera means your effects and filters will look more realistic both when you’re taking a selfie photo or making a video.
At $999, it’s pretty expensive for a phone. But if you consider that it is also both a mini computer and your camera, the price tag doesn’t seem so bad.
