Today’s smartphone market is huge and filled with tones of options. One might even call it boring. But Samsung managed to bring the sparkle back this year with its latest phones that the tech giant has recently unveiled.
Samsung’s S10 lineup features three brand new models: the S10, the S10+, and the S10e.
There’s also the highly intriguing Galaxy Fold which cannot be left out of the discussion.
All devices are offering various trade-offs. Let’s take the S10+ for instance: it comes with a great display but it’s priced $300 more than the budget-friendly S10e.
BGR brings up a subject that’s more important in these phones’ evaluation than their price tag: battery life.
Unexpected battery life for Samsung’s new phones
The online publication makes sure to remind readers that one of the most important aspects users are looking for in a smartphone is that it has long-lasting battery life.
They also note that the S10e has a 3,100 mAh battery, the S10 has a 3,400 mAh battery, while the S10+ boasts a 4,100 mAh battery.
It seems that PhoneArena recently put Samsung’s S10 models to test in order to check out their batteries.
“In a test designed to mimic real-world use, the Galaxy S10+, not surprisingly, came out on top and lasted for 7 hours and 59 minutes. The standard S10, meanwhile, lasted for 6 hours and 45 minutes. And lastly, the Galaxy S10e lasted for 7 hours,” BGR notes.
As you can see for yourself, it seems that the battery life is not that impressive as expected after all especially considering the fact that Samsung’s 2018 S9 models sport more impressive battery life than their successors.
We were recently reporting that Forbes has a better alternative for the Galaxy S10 at least for the moment.
Forbes’ Gordon Kelly admits that even though he’s a huge fan of the new line of Galaxy S10 phones made by Samsung, “the smart money says you should wait for the Galaxy Note 10.”
