Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite is probably the most good looking mid range phone to say the least. Even with a not-so-premium plastic rear cover, Samsung’s overall build quality still stands out among other phone-manufacturers.
With the same Super AMOLED Plus display like the regular S10, the first thing you will notice on hand is the crisp display. Standing at 6.7 inch, the huge display still maintains a bright and clear 394ppi, and the support of HDR10+ makes this a great media consumption device.
The on screen punch-hole camera might not be everyone’s favorite, but it doesn’t feel gigantic compare to some other flagship phones on the market.
Unlike most mid-range phones, Samsung puts a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chip and 6GB ram into the phone, making it very well-performed at this price point. In fact, it scores just ~3% lower in Geekbench 4 multi-core benchmark.
The 4500mAh battery made this phone heavy (186g), but it also ensures a full day usage for heavy users. With the 45W quick charge through USB-C, a 30 minute charge could bring the battery to over 60%, a very impressive stat.
Good Enough Cameras
In the era of multiple cameras, Samsung managed to pack 4 of them in the S10 Lite. It might not the most impressive compare to other manufactures who are putting the super
useful gimmick telephoto lens into the setup, but you could still take stable and usable shots with its cameras.
The ability to shoot 4K video at 60fps (and 1080p slow-mo at 240fps) makes this a capable device for shooting tiktok videos, and probably a bit of vlog when you dont have Go-Pro on hand.
With the current price lower than $500 USD (128GB Storage, 6GB RAM), it is the closest you can get from paying mid-range price for flagship experience. If you like the S20 design but not the $800 price point, S10 Lite might be what you are looking for.
