"Each device delivers a next-generation experience in the categories consumers care about most: groundbreaking innovations in display, camera and performance."

If you're a Galaxy fan, you will know what to expect from the S10 and S10+ which follow the same design principle of past handsets. But there's also the "entry level" Galaxy S10e and the ultra-deluxe Galaxy S10 5G. Let's take a look at how each phone differs.

As you can see in the above table, the Galaxy S10e sports a smaller 5.8-inch AMOLED display, up to 8GB RAM, a 3100mAh battery and a cheaper dual-camera array (a standard 12MP lens and the 12MP ultra-wide angle lens.) If you prefer slightly smaller handset and can live without some bells and whistles, this could be the model to get.

The S10 and S10+, meanwhile, come with a curved Dynamic AMOLED display, an ultrasonic fingerprint scanner, three rear-facing cameras (12MP telephoto, 12MP wide-angle and 16MP ultra-wide), 8GB memory and, in the case of the S10+, up to 1TB of onboard storage. The S10 has a 3400mAh battery. On the S10+, this has been bumped up to 4100mAh.

The S10 5G - which will be released later in the year - boasts a 6.7-inch AMOLED, which is the largest Galaxy smartphone display ever. It also has a beefier 4500mAh battery, 3D image capturing, Super Fast Charging at 25W and 5G connectivity. Samsung is billing the S10 5G as a phone for people who want "more of everything".
