Samsung like a phenomenon

For Galaxy fans who want to stay at the sharp end of technology, the S10 5G combines super-fast data (sometimes) with souped-up Android brilliance
£1099 /

The 5G evolution of the Samsung Galaxy S10 really goes for it with tech specs, starting with a best-in-class screen, a sleek finish and six cameras that deliver. Factor in the 5G speeds it can hit and we’re almost sold, even with the £1099 asking price… but, of course, just how good your S10 5G is will depend on exactly where you are.

If you’re going for a 5G phone, 5G coverage needs to reach you; otherwise you might as well just opt for a much cheaper 4G handset and contract. At the time of writing this review, only EE, Vodafone and Three have gone live with their 5G services in the UK. Coverage is sparse right now, but the upshot is, it’s only going to get better.

And that’s not the only reason your experience of the Galaxy S10 5G will depend on where you are – it also affects the phone’s processor. If you’re in the US you get the Snapdragon 855, which has impressed us countless times, powering phones like the OnePlus 7 Pro, the Sony Xperia 1 and the Oppo Reno 10x Zoom – it’s a cracking chipset. If, however, you’re in the UK, you’ll be getting the Exynos 9820. That’s the version we’ve reviewed, and in the S10s of old it’s been a weaker CPU.
