Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite 128GB 6GB RAM
There is yet another version of Galaxy S10 lite which has 128GB internal storage with 8GB RAM. Samsung has brought Galaxy to more people with the new Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite and Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite. It will strike you straight away that this is a new naming system which Samsung is using for the first time with its S and Note Series of smartphones. For this very reason we at Phone Place Kenya take it upon ourselves to find out what this is all about. In this review you is all you need to know about Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite in Kenya. Read also about all its key features at the end of this review.
Behind the name
Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite is acquired by bequest of Galaxy S10. The company builds on the legacy of Galaxy S by bringing key premium features such as the latest cameras, high end processor, immersive display and now a long-lasting battery at a more affordable price point. Basically, the two are one and the same phone except for a few sacrifices made in order to achieve this price point. Samsung has foregone that glass back we see on S10, changed the display size and cameras’ resolutions and also done away with wireless charging. There is also no official communication or proof that Galaxy S10 Lite is IP certified for water or dust resistance. Apart from these we do not see other reasons why one should thought of as better, or preferred over the other.
Note this for a fact that Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite is powered by a high end Qualcomm SM8150 Snapdragon 855 (7 nm) chipset and runs Android 10.0 with One UI 2 straight out of its package. This is the same chipset that powers Galaxy S10 so then it is safe to say that Galaxy S10 Lite is not any less of a flagship than the might S10. You are basically getting yourself the best and most important device by Samsung for a bargain. Apart from this you should also know that it has a Octa-core (1×2.84 GHz Kryo 485 & 3×2.42 GHz Kryo 485 & 4×1.78 GHz Kryo 485) CPU and Adreno 640 GPU.
Concerning internal storage and memory Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite comes with 128GB of internal storage and 6GB RAM. Then remember also this storage can be expanded using a micros D sup to 1 TB. The other version or model of this phone comes with 128GB and 8GB RAM. This Galaxy S10 Lite is a high-tier smartphone this is and it has these specifications to show for it.
Among the best cameras in the market are those of Samsung S smartphones. This is a fact both known and proven by Samsung users. This is the case for the camera performance of Samsung Galaxy S 10 Lite since it also is of the S origin. So on the back panel there is a new camera module set up which we speculate will be picked up by Samsung going forward. It consists of three camera lenses which are a 48 MP, f/2.0 wide sensor, a 12 MP secondary lens which shoots in ultra wide and a dedicated 5MP macro camera. Let me put emphases on the one feature which Samsung would not wish those buying this phone to miss. This is Super Steady Optical Image Stabilization (OIS).
Now we all know that OIS in itself is an admirable camera feature that helps ensure steady videos in unstable conditions. For example when shooting a video while walking then the outcome is usually shaky motion pictures. OIS solves that. With Galaxy S10 Lite OIS as been further improved to ensure even more steady videos hence its name Super Steady OIS. This is a feature that will increase the personal rating of the video you shoot, even in 4K 2160p@30fps, which this phone is able to shoot. But video recording is 1080p@30fps with S10 Lite’s 32 MP, f/2.2, 25mm (wide) selfie shooting lens.
The hole punch we see on S10 has also been carried over here. It is a single punch wherein the selfie shooter us nested. This is the first thing you will notice about the display panel of Galaxy S10 Lite. The second will be this, it is a Super AMOLED Plus capacitive touchscreen. And though you may not be able to tell the resolution by simply looking, always keep it stored at the back of your mind that it is 1080 x 2400 pixels. AMOLED panels never disappoint and they surely do not begin to with this phone’s 6.7 inches HDR compliant panel. Dark Mode is supported here thanks once again to AMOLED and that Always-on display feature is also on board. On Galaxy S10 Lite is one of the best displays any smartphone can have.
Very rarely do we speak of battery performance of Samsung flagship smartphones with so much interest and zeal. This is our theory. That because wireless charging is not supported here then the battery capacity had to be boosted so as to make up for it. See I am talking about a non-removable Li-Po 4500 mAh battery. Even Galaxy S10 had only 3400 mAh. When it comes to charging this 4500mAh beast then Fast battery charging is on deck. Here and now is a Galaxy S smartphone capable of taking you a whole day of usage with ease, even two if you are the careful type – finally.
