If you’re not sure which new Galaxy S10 model to choose, don’t worry. We’ll explain the basic differences between the S10e, S10, S10+, and S10 5G right here. It’s true that they are all amazing, but each one has something different to offer, such as their screen size, battery power, cameras, and fingerprint scanners.

Screen size

The most noticeable difference between the different S10 models is their screen size. With each model, the screen size increases, although they all offer an immersive Infinity Display.

Here's a quick comparison:

  • S10+'s screen size is 6.4 inches.

  • S10 5G's screen size is 6.7 inches.

Battery power

While they all have great batteries that will last all day, the S10e, S10, S10+, and S10 5G have varying battery capacity. Just like with the screen size, the battery capacity increases depending on the model. The higher the number, the more powerful the battery is.

Here's the battery power of each Galaxy S10:

  • S10's battery is 3,400 mAH.

Different cameras

Everyone knows that Galaxy phones have the best cameras, but on the S10 lineup, they are even better. You’ll get an incredible camera with high-quality pictures on the S10e, but if you want to be a professional photographer, the S10, S10+, and S10 5G have even more features for you.

Take a look below to compare all the differences.

Since their cameras are so different, each model has special camera modes. Learn more about the different camera modes and what your phone’s camera can do.

Fingerprint scanner

Just like on previous phones, the S10e, S10, S10+, and S10 5G have fingerprint security for extra protection. However, the fingerprint scanners are located in different places depending on what model you are using.

On the S10e, the fingerprint scanner is located on the Power key.

On the S10, S10+, and S10 5G, the fingerprint scanner is located inside your phone’s screen, right near the Home button.

Now that you know, you can set up fingerprint security on the S10e, S10, S10+, and S10 5G.

Wi-Fi connectivity

We rely on Wi-Fi for pretty much everything. Luckily, no matter which version you buy, the S10e, S10, S10+, and S10 5G all have Wi-Fi 6 capabilities. This is the latest version of Wi-Fi; it's faster and will perform better, even if you're in a crowded area.
