Samsung Galaxy S10e review
Design and Display
In the package of Samsung Galaxy S series, S10e is the most affordable one which doesn’t even touch fifty Indian grands price tag. Yes, this device is missing some hefty features but still, it is one heck of a solid performer. It comes in the smaller size which makes it very easy to hold in hands. It is a one-handed smartphone which is something everyone will like- just like iPhone SE.
It is a shrunken version of S10 and S10 Plus. This device misses Infinity Edge tapered display which is present in other two variants. But, it is the lightest one weighing around 150 grams. Samsung S10e misses fingerprint sensor in the screen but has a small capacitive sensor within the power button. It works fast and is very responsive- more responsive than in-display fingerprint sensor of S10 Plus. You can get great discount on electronics item using Paytm Mall Coupon Code.

Honestly, is really hard to say no to products like these. It is a complete package at affordable flagship pricing. It is smaller, fits in hand tight, has flagship chipset, looks elegant as heck, has all the latest tech integrated into it, and those two cameras perform exceptionally well. It is just the device for one-handed people.
Smartphone-like One plus 7 Pro can eat its market as it is big, better, and faster in every possible way. There is nothing going against this device but the competition. All in all, if you are looking to buy any device in S lineup of Samsung, this one wins the race- affordable, fast, and is a small package with everything flagship-level integrated into it.
