Galaxy S10e vs Galaxy S9 Plus

Which one is best for you?

The Galaxy S10e and S9+ are both fantastic phones, but demonstrate what a difference a year can make in phone technology. Released just a year before the S10e, the S9+ is a much larger phone, incorporating Samsung’s cutting edge screen know-how to cover 90% of the phone’s face with its stunning Super AMOLED display. With 6GB of RAM and a hefty 3500 mAh battery, the S9+ was built to effortlessly reproduce games and movies in glorious high definition.

Its 2x12-megapixel dual camera was one of the best on the market upon release, but the fantastic photo tech introduced in the S10 range has now superseded it. The S10e’s versatile 16+12-megapixel dual camera renders colours and contrast realistically, and will deliver great results in any setting. Samsung has improved the screen even further, with the remaining bezels squeezed out in favour of a pinhole notch in the glorious Infinity-O Display to house the 10-megapixel front camera.

Similar in power and capacity, the S10e can perform to the level of its plus-sized predecessor, but is much more pocket-friendly. If the large screen is important to you, the S9+ remains a great option, but the natty S10e outperforms it.
