The Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus (SM-G975) In-Depth Review!

Samsung has a new heavyweight champion – the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus! It packs a larger display, more cameras, memory and storage, as well as a larger battery, into a smaller and lighter form factor!

In this in-depth review, we will see how Samsung achieved that feat, and find out if this is indeed the best smartphone Samsung ever made!


Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus Models

First, let us point out that there are three variants of the Galaxy S10 Plus smartphone :

  • a base model with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage
  • a higher-end model with 8 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage
  • a premium model with 12 GB of RAM and 1 TB of storage


Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus Colour Options

The Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus (US | UK | MY) is available in six colour options, although not all colours will be available in all countries.

  • Prism White
  • Prism Black
  • Prism Green
  • Prism Blue
  • Ceramic White
  • Ceramic Black

Here is a comparison of the available colours for the S10 Plus, as well as the S10 and S10e models.

Unfortunately, there was no sign of the Prism Blue, Flamingo Pink or Canary Yellow colours. As mentioned in our Galaxy S10 primer, not all colours are available in every country.


Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus Premium Ceramic Back

The Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus (US | UK | MY) has two premium Ceramic White or Ceramic Black colour options, but they are limited to the higher-end models with 512 GB or 1 TB of storage.

The Ceramic back is heavier by 23 grams (13%), and was said to be more durable. However, we confirmed that both Ceramic and non-Ceramic backs are covered with Gorilla Glass 5. So the durability and scratch-resistance of the two types of backs are a moot point.

Ultimately, the Ceramic backs are all about the looks. You get a more premium looking back with the 512 GB or 1 TB models.
