Re-reviewing the Galaxy S10 Plus in 2020, one year after its original launch (and OneUI’s introduction) and ahead of the S20 reveal. Here’s how Samsung’s big blower stacks up 12 months later, including camera updates (a night mode, rejoice!), performance, battery life and the everyday experience.

That Galaxy S10+ no longer seems like a monster, with most mobiles hitting a similar size in 2020. Battery longevity seems to have actually improved over time, possibly due to software updates, while the triple lens rear camera has been boosted for low light shots. It’s not the best smartphone for photo quality but the video output is still brilliant. Check out my review of the greatest camera phones for video recording for a closer look.

Speed is not an issue – the likes of PubG Mobile still play with a beautiful frame rate on the Samsung S10 Plus. Plus, the media chops are as solid as ever, despite the lack of 90Hz refresh and Dolby Vision action.

But of course the Galaxy S10+ is still far too expensive ahead of the S20 Plus launch, so here’s hoping that price comes down when the latest Samsung flagship mobiles arrive.

  1. i've had the s9+ since it's launch and honestly i don't think i'm ever going to change phone. obviously i'm not going to stick with just this model, i have screwed up my screen and so i'm going to get a new s9+ soon. it's honestly the best phone i've ever had. i considered getting the s10 last year but it really wasn't worth it. and now with the s20 out.. it doesn't have a headphone jack and hell is it expensive. i don't see the point in spending a grand on a phone. the s9+ is perfect for me in every way, especially size wise. lbr the s10 and s20 were just made that big for the sake of being made big

  2. My videos play on the phone itself, but when I copy them to my computer for editing, only the audio plays – no picture. I advised Samsung by email but it's been over a week and they have yet to get back to me, so not too happy on that front. I wonder if this has happened to anyone else?

  3. Write it this phone from galaxy s10 plus

    Best phone I have ever used
    Upgraded from Nexus 6P

    Very smooth performance never expected this from Samsung since I used galaxy S3 in the past but I guess in the last 3 years Samsung step up in their game and become the best cellphone company ever

    Iam so happy to the fact its cheap now and has almost 94% features of S20 ultra !

    Plus even better with headphone jack
    Happy to be back to samsung

    Thank you for this amazing phone so happy with my purchase ❤

  4. So I'm having a hard time here choosing between the S10, S10+ and S20. Reason being is that my mom owns a A20s which is kinda big although the S10+ is a little bit smaller. I'm worried more about size and battery life which one should I get?

  5. Why are these reviewers surprised when a £1000 flag ship still works 12 months later? It better ducking had for that price.
