Samsung Galaxy M10 Review

 

 

The 3-Minute Samsung Galaxy M10 Review

The Specifics

Features & Design: 4/5 ● Performance: 3/5 ● Value: 3/5 ● Sound Quality 4/5

The Galaxy M-series is Samsung’s path to the entry-level phone market. The M10 has the lowest price in the range and tries to cover the basics.

It has a cost-effective IPS display, not AMOLED. An octa-core CPU onboard sits snugly in the $130-$150 range. Major selling points are an ultra-wide lens, a large lens, and a big battery.

A rundown of the M10’s features include:

l  Body: 55.6 x 75.6 x 7.7 mm, 163 grams, glass front, plastic back and sides.

l  Screen: 6.22" PLS TFT (IPS), 720 x 1520px resolution; ~270 ppi.

l  Chipset: Exynos 7870 Octa (14nm) chipset: octa-core CPU (8x Cortex-A53 1.6 GHz); Mali-T830 MP1 GPU.

l  Memory: 2/3GB RAM, 16/32GB built-in storage, microSD slot support.

l  OS: Samsung Experience 9.5 based on Android 8.1 Oreo.

l  Rear camera: 13MP f/1.9, 1.12µm, 1/3.1", PDAF support + 5MP ultra-wide f/2.2, 1.12µm; LED flash; 1080p@30 video recording.

l  Front camera: 5MP f/2.0; 1080p@30fps video recording.

l  Battery: 3,400mAh.

l  Connectivity: Dual-SIM; LTE Cat.6 (300Mbps) download / Cat.6 upload (50Mbps), Wi-Fi b/g/n, GPS; Bluetooth 4.2 A2DP, LE, microUSB 2.0.

The Best

The 6.22-inch Infinity-V (waterdrop-styled notch) display has acceptable side and top bezels with a slightly thicker chin. The ultra-wide camera feature will engage youth. We know ultra-wide cameras are rare on a budget, the M10 will win hearts with this.

The Bugs

Many M10 performance bugs are hardware-related. It is expected, considering it’s a budget device. User interface (UI) lagging, unexpected shutdowns, frozen screens, slowing apps and games which may also crash often, are common issues that many users report.

Is it for you?

It is hard to compare it to similar devices even when those are slightly more expensive. More creative gradient color options and better side ergonomics would be preferred. These are generally not deal-breakers if the Galaxy M10 fits your budget.

What we like

The price makes it harsh to judge its materials. It does not bend, flex, or creak, despite being 100% plastic except for the glass panel. It is more difficult to break than a glass sandwich phone and definitely cheaper to repair if that happens.

What we don’t like

The limited color options and bland black back design is too basic. The glossy finish retains fingerprints in a big way.

The small opening near the bottom functions as a speaker grille. This clunky feeling reminds us of when Samsung put speaker grilles on the back.

Performance is another sore point as you place more demands on the phone.

Should you buy it?

We definitely recommend buying the Samsung Galaxy M10 if you want a decent device that is quite functional for most regular purposes. The battery is okay, and the ultra-wide-angle lens is usable. It does okay compared to rival products. If video is your thing, you have a decent product.

It becomes harder to recommend the M10 when you compare with similar offerings from other brands that share the same price point. The shortcomings are glaring:

l  an under-powered SoC

l  average battery lifestyle

l  no fingerprint reader

l  no ambient light sensor

l  sluggish menu navigation

l  rear-facing loudspeaker

  • The Good :
    Big screen on a fair budget, Okay camera performance with unique ultra-wide angle cam, Satisfactory video recording quality
  • The Bad :
    No ambient light sensor or fingerprint reader, Needs third-party charger to charge faster, Face unlock is slow and unreliable
Our score:
4 / 5
