Are you still looking for to buy a brand-new Galaxy? If you want the latest and greatest Samsung tech, you’ve got a choice to make, between Samsung Galaxy S10 or Samsung Galaxy S10+. Needless to say, the Galaxy S10 generations branding can be a bit confusing for buyers of new phones or folks who want to simply upgrade their older phone to a newer model. So, which Galaxy S10 phone you should buy?

The biggest driver of your decision to pick one over the other is the size that correlate to usable screen and battery life. The Galaxy S10 has a 6.1-inch display, while the S10+ bumps up to a 6.4-inch display — they’re the same quality and resolution, but having more of the same thing is generally positive for most people. However, bigger screen size means less scrolling and a bit easier to see the contents. For people with vision issues, the larger screen also offers an even better opportunity to have screen zoom without losing much content. But a larger screen means, of course, a larger phone.

Due to the both of them use a very tall 19:9 aspect ratio, most of that extra size comes in height. The Galaxy S10+ is about 8mm taller and 3.5mm wider than the S10 — that’s about 5% larger in each direction. It may not seem like much, but the Galaxy S10+ is pretty large, and if you have trouble handling larger phones, you may be better off with the smaller phone.

The extra space lets Samsung get the additional battery in the Galaxy S10+, up to 4100mAh compared to the S10’s 3400mAh. An extra 20% battery capacity, with the same basic capabilities and specs compare to S10, directly translate to about a 20% increase in battery longevity. This is likely the biggest deciding factor for most people, especially if they tend to be hard on phone batteries. Dealing with a larger phone may be worth it if it means you don’t have to worry about charging as often.

The only other functional difference to be found with the phones is the Galaxy S10+’s secondary front-facing camera. This is a dedicated camera for capturing depth of pictures taken to improve selfies and create neat portrait mode effects. With the second camera, you can accurately determine the depth of frames and apply some (admittedly gimmicky) effects. It should not to be much of a consideration, especially when considering the main selfie camera result from both phones is the same — and it’s quite good.

To give you better figures, let see their specs in depth on below table

You can see from the above table that both phones come with standard 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, which is most people will be happy with. However, for the true power users that never want to be stuck with storage issues, the Galaxy S10+ has an exclusive option for 1TB of storage — and it happens to have 12GB of RAM as well. Those are both absurd numbers that don’t apply to most smartphone users, but if you know that you need it, the Galaxy S10+ is the only place to go for it.

On the more superficial side, the Galaxy S10+ also has two exclusive models that have a ceramic back instead of glass. The ceramic comes in black or white (it gives a different shades than glass models) and it is only available when you are buying the high storage version. The ceramic looks neat and is undoubtedly tougher than the glass model, but it’s tough to say that it’s worth the extra money when the base models are so well equipped. Unfortunately, you can not get the smaller Galaxy S10 and the ceramic back together.

Now we are going to conclude “Which should you buy?”

The Galaxy S10 is the preferred choice for most people, mostly because it’s $100 less. For that money, you’re getting nearly the same phone, sans a couple of fringe features and higher optional storage and RAM choices that aren’t necessary. The S10 is also a bit more compact and has a plenty large battery through your day.

The Galaxy S10+ offers just a little bit more on bigger screen, bigger battery, and higher storage option. If you’re a power user who needs to have it all, the Galaxy S10+ is great; just know for a fact you’ll make use of the extra capabilities before you spend the extra $100.
