The Samsung Galaxy S10 is the top of the line phone that packs the best set of hardware in the market right now. Besides having a powerful SoC, the phone also packs enough RAM for heavy multitasking. But is the Samsung Galaxy S10 the best performing phone in the market right now? Well, let’s find out.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 packs an octa-core Exynos 9820 SoC based on an 8nm FinFet. The processor is backed by 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. There is another version of the phone which comes with 512GB of onboard memory. Both options have the ability to expand memory via a micro-sd card up to whopping 1TB.
Given the specs it has, the S10 has superb performance. Like everyone else, my daily activities constitute of scrolling through Facebook, checking my E-Mail and calendar, binging on some shows, and a lot of messaging & web surfing. The Samsung Galaxy S10 was easily able to handle these tasks, no-brainer! I also didn’t notice any visible lags or stutters while doing so.
I also listen to a lot of music, use a billion apps, and take a ton of photos on a daily basis. The, already available, 128GB of internal storage and support for micro-sd card helps keep the phone ready for more files. This inclusion is a live saver as I have 92.14GB of used storage. Imagine if I had just 64GB of internal storage. This would have been a problem! I know, I know I can always stick a micro-sd card in there but I really don’t own one right now. And I would rather resort to transferring the file to a computer than buying an sd-card. So yeah, having 128GB of inbuilt storage, as a default option, is a boon. Kudos to Samsung for that!
Talking about gaming, the S10 blew through all the titles I threw at it. Everything from Asphalt 9 to the non-graphic intensive games like Mr. Bullet ran very smoothly on the phone. I also played a lot of PUBG on this phone. And to no surprise, the phone performed extremely well. I didn’t face lags or dropped frames during my gameplay. This is all thanks to the Mali-G76 MP12 GPU the phone packs.
The Galaxy S10 packs a vapor chamber (liquid-cooling) which prevents the phone from overheating while gaming. The heat dissipation was also properly managed thanks to this. Besides the hardware, the software also played a major role in boosting the performance of the phone. The Galaxy S10 runs on the latest One UI 1.1 based Android 9.0 Pie. The UI on the phone is very smooth with no visible lags or stutters.
The hardware and software on the Samsung Galaxy S10 work in conjunction to provide it with superb performance. During my usage, I didn’t face any problems with the phone. Gaming on the device also was a surreal experience. Overall, I am very much pleased with the performance and gaming capability of the phone.
