Samsung continues to be generally considered king of the hill in terms of flagship Android smartphones, and its own various portfolio of recent budget offerings appears to have helped its mobile business maintain steady growth. As the company now appears to get a handle on the budget and high-end segments of the smartphone market, in India, it’s still racking your brains on the mid-range segment.

Here, OnePlus has been dominating for a couple of years now, so much in order that it were able to lead the premium smartphone market in 2019, according to a recently available report. That is a segment of the smartphone market that Samsung was not paying too much focus on, but that’s going to change with the Galaxy S10 Lite and Galaxy Note 10 Lite smartphones, both which launched in India very recently.

Today, our focus will be on the Galaxy S10 Lite, and as its name suggests, that is a watered-down version of the Galaxy S10 series. As a way to hit the Rs. 40,000 price, Samsung has ditched a couple of premium features such as for example an IP rating for water resistance, wireless charging, stereo speakers, its signature dual-aperture camera, and a glass-and-metal body. What the business has retained is a flagship-grade processor, an Infinity-O display, and a huge battery.

On paper, the brand new Galaxy S10 Lite appears like a decent offering for the purchase price, but is there the real-world performance to complement? More importantly, is there what must be done to knock the OnePlus 7T (Review) off its pedestal? Let’s find out.

Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite design
Everybody loves a big, crisp display, and the Galaxy S10 Lite offers that. It’s a 6.7-inch Super AMOLED+ panel with a full-HD+ (1080×2400) resolution and support for HDR10+. It’s protected by Gorilla Glass, although Samsung hasn’t specified which version. The centred hole-punch cutout near the top of the screen isn’t as small as the main one on the Galaxy A51 (Review), but we missed it intrusive. Samsung has kept the bezels all over the screen pretty slim, like the chin below, making leading quite striking. Colours are punchy, and brightness is great.

The Galaxy S10 Lite uses something called ‘Glastic’ for the trunk, which is Samsung’s lingo for a glossy plastic panel that resembles glass. The complete body feels strong and well put-together. The trunk does scuff easily, especially underneath portion, and it’s an enormous fingerprint and smudge magnet. We’d advise buyers to utilize the bundled case. The rectangular camera module protrudes slightly, but it isn’t too obtrusive.

Button placement feels ergonomic, and on the left, we’ve a hybrid dual-SIM tray that may either take two Nano-SIM cards or an individual SIM and a microSD card. The Galaxy S10 Lite does not have a headphone socket, this means you need to either utilize the bundled Type-C headset or go wireless. In the bottom, we’ve a USB Type-C port and an individual speaker.

Samsung has cut a few corners with the construction materials, but despite devoid of used aluminium and glass, the Galaxy S10 Lite still feels fairly good to carry. It is also quite slim at 8.1mm and doesn’t weigh an excessive amount of (186g) for a phone with a sizable display and battery.

Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite specifications and software
The Galaxy S10 Lite is made around the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC, which continues to be among Qualcomm’s flagship chips and continues to be relevant though it is currently almost a year old. It could have already been nice to experienced the Snapdragon 855+ variant, which other phones including the OnePlus 7T and Asus ROG Phone 2 (Review) use, but that is still much better than a 700-series processor.

In India, Samsung has only launched the Galaxy S10 Lite in a single configuration, with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. Other specifications include dual-band Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth 5, support for four satellite satnav systems, Radio, and NFC. The latter enables you to use your phone for contactless payments through Samsung Pay. All of the sensors you’d typically expect can be found, and the telephone has Widevine L1 DRM recognition too. The Galaxy S10 Lite also offers a 4,500mAh battery, which Samsung says should last for about two days of usage.

The Galaxy S10 Lite runs using one UI 2.0, which is dependant on Android 10. It even gets the January 2020 security patch. The most recent version of Samsung’s skin looks more refined and polished, and we recently saw it running on the Galaxy A51 too. The ‘Link to Windows’ feature enables you to see your messages and notifications on a Windows 10 computer, similar from what we saw in the Galaxy Note 10+ (Review). Additionally you get more features such as for example an in-built screen recorder, multiple motion gestures, a one-handed mode, and Game Launcher for organising your games in a single place.

A very important factor we noticed is that the Galaxy S10 Lite does not have the India-specific features that people saw on the Galaxy A51, such as for example card-style sorting in the Messages iphone app and multilingual predictions for the keyboard. Samsung told Gadgets 360 these will be exclusive to the Galaxy A51, {for the present time
