Final Verdict

It’s a painful truth but it needs to be said: the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus is gut-wrenchingly expensive. Where Samsung gets into trouble, however, is when you start looking at the rest of the opposition. The forthcoming Xiaomi Mi 9 is probably the closest comparison. It’s the first smartphone to come with the Snapdragon 855 inside – that’s the Qualcomm equivalent of the S10 Plus’s Exynos 9820 chip – it also has three cameras on the rear and a 6.4in display.
