Samsung Galaxy S10 Review – The Curved Screen Infinity-O Display

The Galaxy S10 Plus doesn’t seem to be much a departure from the previous S7 Plus Edge that started this trend of edge display as noted in Samsung Galaxy S7 Launch #TheNextGalaxyJa.

With dimensions of 157.6 x 74.1 x 7.8 mm (6.20 x 2.92 x 0.31 in) and weighing 175 g or 198 g with the ceramic finish, the Galaxy S10 Plus is not a one-handed phone. Unless you have large hands, handling it with one hand will be a bit cumbersome, especially when using it with your thumb.

The 6.4″ Dynamic AMOLED capacitive touchscreen appears to be made with Corning Gorilla Glass 6 and is what Samsung is calling an Infinity-O display.

Packing a resolution of 1440 x 3040 pixels, it’s sandwiched between front glass made of Gorilla Glass 6 and a back glass made of Gorilla Glass 5 with an aluminum frame. From my reading, it seems to be IP68 dust/water proof for up to 1.5m for 30 mins underwater, so this thing can take a swim, just not a deep dive for too long.

Samsung Galaxy S10 Review – Edge-to-edge display is Curved and sensitive

The curve on the display is interesting, as the screen is curved and it goes from edge to edge. This does present a challenge in using the device in much the same way the edge-to-edge display does; accidentally touching things you did not intend to touch.

The micro-USB data port which also doubles as a charging port is located on the bottom of the smartphone as usual. So too is a single speaker grille for the built in speakers and a 3.5mm headphone jack. Still had bits of plastic wrap on it when I took this photo, making me wonder if Samsung is serious about tackling plastic packaging in their products!

Facing the phone, the power button is on the right hand side of the smartphone.

Samsung took care to make it blend into the super-thin aluiminium bezel.

The top has the usual earphone hole and the SIM card tray slot.

SIM card tray slot accepts Nano-SIM cards which you can easily make from your Micro-SIM Card as explained in my article How to make your own Micro-SIM or Nano-SIM Card. It also has a space for a SD Card, as the Galaxy S10 Plus can take SD Cards as large as 1 TB, once in Single SIM mode.

So what about the Cameras!? Read the next part of my review of the Samsung Galaxy S10 as I focus on the Camera!
