Android Authority has some very passionate readers. That’s why we often turn to you for your opinion on certain things.
Last week, we asked you to choose your favorite smartphone that was released in the first half of 2019. We bundled all three Galaxy S10 models — the Galaxy S10, S10 Plus, and S10e — into the same selection. To the surprise of no one, you all picked the Galaxy S10 line as your favorite.
But what’s the best phone out of the three? Is it the highest-end Galaxy S10 Plus, middle-of-the-road Galaxy S10, or the affordable, smaller Galaxy S10e? We now have that answer.
Reader’s Choice: Which Galaxy S10 model is your favorite?
Out of almost 5,700 total votes on the website and Twitter, the clear winner is the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus with over 2,800 votes. This shouldn’t come as a surprise — the Galaxy S10 Plus has some of the best specs on the market, plus a stellar design and a versatile camera setup.
In second place is the Galaxy S10e with just over 1,500 votes. This one likely came in second because of its value (it costs hundreds of dollars less than the other two S10s) and has a much more manageable form factor.
The standard Galaxy S10 (a.k.a. the middle child) came in last with just over 1,300 votes. Don’t think for a second that the Galaxy S10 is a bad phone. It’s just… someone had to come in last.
Here are some of the best comments from last week’s poll explaining why they voted the way that they did:
- I like my S10 but wished it had dual stereo speakers built in like my old HTC had. Then I would love it more.
- IF I had to to pick one, I’d go with the S10e. I have no need for a bigger screen, no need for a better camera, in-display fingerprint readers and I don’t get along, and curved screens scare me. However, the biggest problem I have with all 3 of them is that name on the back. Samsung. That alone is enough to make me pass entirely.
- I LOVE FLAT SCREEN! S10e for sure.
- My choice is of course my s10+. Super fast, display, cameras & battery for myself, there is no finer. It’s got my vote for phone of the year!
- S10e, it’s compact, has funky colors & gets the job done for me.
That’s it for this week, everyone. As always, thanks for voting, thanks for the comments, and don’t forget to let us know what you thought of the results below!
