For many people, the smartphone market has become a little boring. The iPhone X range offers little innovation and the phones are considered overpriced by most. Every other premium Android smartphone from the likes of Google, Sony and Huawei are all starting to look the same. The market has become stale. The bad news is that this might not change much with the new Samsung S10, S10e and S10 plus. While they are excellent phones are they enough of a leap forward to justify an upgrade, especially as the cost of the S9 now starts to drop? Below we discuss the S10 vs S9 and round up the best deals in the market for both devices.
The S9 was the best smartphone of 2018. It was miles ahead of the competition and set a high benchmark for Apple to try to beat when they launched the iPhone X range. The most impressive thing about the S8 is its 5.8-inch widescreen quad HD display (or 6.2
-inch in the PLUS model) which brings a wraparound screen that extends over each edge into a luxurious feeling aluminium back. Inside it is powered by the world’s most powerful smartphone processor, 4GB of Ram and 64 GB of storage (which can be extended to 512 GB via microSD). It has a 12mp camera on the back and 8mp camera on the front, wireless charging, an AI assistant called Bixby, is waterproof and dustproof and has some very neat new security features like iris scanning and facial recognition.
The S10 is certainly a higher spec beast than the S9 camera which offers a new triple lens camera (12MP + 12MP + 16MP) which gives you 10MP on the front and 16MP on the back. The storage has been bumped up to 128GB (expandable via microSD) and it runs on 8GB of RAM. The S10 has a 6.1-inch screen, the S10e offers 5.8 inches and the S10 plus offers 6.4 inches. There isn’t any great leap forward in terms of mobile technology. Perhaps they’re saving that for the new foldable device that’s been revealed. The good news is that if you don’t go for the S10, the S9 is much cheaper now. There are bargains aplenty and we’ve listed the best S9, S9 plus and Note 9 deals in the tables below.
