Author’s Opinion

The Samsung Galaxy S0 Lineup is a range of flagship premium smartphones. All three smartphones come with the best smartphone display in the world. It comes with a great design and looks. All three smartphones are true flagship in every sense of the word with an appropriate price tag. There is really very little to critique about this near perfection devices, from design, screen camera and performance being almost unparalleled.

Talking about the competition in this price range of between 56K—118K, the real competitors of this smartphone are Huawei Mate 20 Pro, iPhone X, Google Pixel 3 XL, Galaxy Note 9, iPhone XS Lineup and Asus ROG Phone. So, the competition in this price range is low.

If compared with the competition, the smartphone is offering much more features, specifications and importantly better pricing for the Indian market which Apple failed to do.

Overall, We recommend all three models of Samsung Galaxy S10 lineup to buy in this price range (Models depends on your budget).

Note: These are my initial impressions of the smartphone. For Full Flash Review, Stay tuned with our Instagram Page.
