There’s something particularly exciting about getting an upgrade… the anticipation of buying or upgrading, that moment you’re handed a box full of phone, wrapped in plastic… the opening of it and seeing a brand new, sparkly device… putting in your SIM card… switching it on… watching it load up faster than your previous one… noticing how the display is brighter and more brilliant… and how the performance is snappier… then the ultimate test… taking your first picture, whether selfie or of your kid… and seeing how much better, and crisper it is…
Upgrading to the new Galaxy S10
We love upgrades. They never seem to come quickly enough. Considering that Samsung has released the all-new Galaxy S10, now is a good time to consider upgrading.
How does it look? Well, a little like the iPhone X. The near completely all-screen phone clearly takes a lead out of the X’s playbook. And it looks great, especially as it’s near bezel-less (which just means that the screen is nearly at the edges of the phone).
No need for recognition with the Galaxy S10.
For those unconvinced by the facial recognition software of the iPhone, the S10’s on-screen fingerprint sensor may be a better sell. There’s less chance it won’t recognise the biometric, meaning less instances of being forced to manually enter your password.
As for the lenses, they’re incredible: the pictures you’ll be able to snap will look almost as if taken with a DSLR camera. This includes a wide-angle lens that will be great for scenery and landscaped-based shooting.
The Galaxy S10 comes in more than one size.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 and its bigger brother the S10 Plus, are both large phones. You’d think you’d be compromising on quality of experience over larger-than-life displays and a cinematic experience… but you’re not.
Because the S10 and S10 Plus ship with the latest version of Android, known as Pie (in keeping with the tradition of naming, in alphabetical order, all new major versions of Android after delicacies, desserts, and sweet treats). And includes a new software suite especially developed for Samsung phones called One UI. It essentially pushes the app icons (the most important ones anyway) to the bottom of the screen, allowing you far more ease when operating the phone one-handed. You still get to maintain a tight grip but won’t struggle reaching the apps anymore.
Your eyes will pop with the Galaxy S10.
As far as visuals go, you don’t get more eye-popping than this. Both versions of the phone have a dynamic AMOLED display with Quad HD+. What this translates into is amazing YouTube videos, Google Play Store movies, your own footage from the excellent cams, and games that spring to life.
This is an excellent phone, so if you’re into Android as your favourite operating system, we suggest stopping by your preferred mobile operator, whether that’s Vodacom, MTN, or CellC, at Woodlands and picking up it up.
