Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite review
Accessible price/pro-grade camera
We kick off 2020 with a real treat in our UK Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite review. Samsung makes its S10 range more accessible with the S10 Lite, which is cheaper than the other models but still retains a pro-grade camera and many other great features.
XXX-Sized Infinity-O Display
The Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite has one of the largest displays around. Measuring 6.7” diagonally, this is much bigger than the display on the S10, which comes in at only 6.1”.
The uninterrupted edge-to-edge Infinity-O Display enables you to enjoy a full variety of media with stunning detail. There is Full HD+ resolution (2,400x 1,080 pixels/394 pixels per inch) and the Super AMOLED Plus screen uses flexible OLED technology to deliver an Always-On Display feature and improved contrast and sharpness with HDR.
New: Honor V30 Pro review
The Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite has a small camera peephole position in the top centre part of the screen. On the rear, there is a square camera module for the three camera lenses and LED flash.
You can take your pick of colours from Prism Blue, Prism White, and Prism Black. The phone is not heavy at 186g and it isn’t fat either at 8.1mm.
A Snapdragon octa-core 2.8GHz processor paired with 6GB or 8GB of RAM features on the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite. This is wickedly fast and perfect for gaming, streaming, and multitasking.
Phone Set Up
The latest biometric-security
When you set up your Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite, you can use the rather cool On-Screen Fingerprint system or Face Recognition. Outside of unlocking the phone, there is defence-grade security with Samsung Knox, keeping you safe and securing your data.

The internal memory of 128GB is very healthy but there is also an up to 1TB memory card slot. This lets the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite store hundreds of apps, videos, and other media.
ONE UI 2 and Android 10.0
Based on Android 10, Samsung’s One UI 2 offers a few enhancements that improve the experience. You can use Goole’s or Samsung’s navigation gestures, enjoy a more concise camera interface, have easier access to one-handed mode, switch to Dark Mode, and see new animations.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite also comes with Samsung apps such as Samsung Health, Samsung Pay, and the Bixby assistant.
Camera & Video
Pro-grade triple camera
The triple camera on the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite includes a:
- 48MP wide-angle lens
- 12MP ultra wide-angle lens (123o) – with the same field of vision as the human eye
- 5MP macro lens
This Samsung smartphone has Super Steady OIS and a Super Steady Mode where you capture smooth action-focused video. You can also add special effects to videos with real-time Live Focus and take selfies with a 32MP lens.
Comparison: The Samsung Galaxy S10 has a 16MP main camera and a 10MP selfie camera.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite has a 4,500mAh battery, which is significantly larger than the 3,400mAh battery seen on the S10. With this phone capable of super-fast charging through its Type-C charging port, you will also spend less time connected to annoying wires and cables.
