Here’s where you can buy the Samsung Galaxy S10

New, 17 comments

The S10, S10 Plus, and S10E have released

Samsung’s Galaxy S10 lineup is now available, and you can now place an order for one online or at your local retailer. If you want to read what we think of them before buying, we have a full review of the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus, and a first look with the new S10E. What’s the S10E, you ask? Like Apple did with its more affordable iPhone XR, Samsung is trying to tempt those who might be reluctant to upgrade to do so with a cheaper Galaxy S10 phone.

If you preordered the S10 or S10 Plus, you’ll have until April 4th to redeem a $130 gift card. You can do so through the Shop Samsung app, and once you receive the e-gift card, you can use it toward a purchase until it expires on September 1st, 2019. Samsung has confirmed that it can be applied to any item on Samsung’s online store.

Samsung Galaxy S10E

The most affordable Galaxy S10 device, the S10E, starts at $749.99. That’s a $30 markup over last year’s Galaxy S9, even though this is billed as the budget model. The S10E matches the S10 with its Snapdragon 855, but it gets away with a lower price by having a smaller display that’s FHD+ instead of QHD resolution, a lower RAM count, two rear-facing lenses, among a few other differences that may or may not be a big deal to you.

Carrier availability

  • Sprint offers the S10E for $31.25 per month over 18 billing cycles as part of its Sprint Flex lease program. The carrier is offering a free S10E with purchase, paid back in monthly credits with purchase, though it requires an 18-month lease, and at least one new line and one upgraded line in your plan.
  • AT&T is offering the S10E for $25 per month ($28.34 per month for the 256GB model) for 30 months on AT&T Next. If you purchase an S10E, S10, or S10 Plus, you can get an S10E for free, though it requires a new line and credits the value of the free phone each month.
  • Pricing for the S10E at Verizon starts at $31.24 per month for 24 months. If you purchase an S10E, S10 or S10 Plus, you can get an S10E for free, though it requires a new line and credits the value of the free phone each month.
  • For T-Mobile customers, the cheaper S10E starts at $20.84 per month on the carrier’s 36-month plan. If you have a trade-in, you can get half the cost of the S10E knocked off, and up to $390 off the purchase of an S10 or S10 Plus when you open a new line.

The S10 is where you’ll find most of this year’s new features put to work, like its triple rear-facing cameras, the embedded fingerprint sensor, high-resolution display, and a slightly more refined design. Each of the S10 phones shares the same Snapdragon 855 processor, but this model has a bigger display than the S10E (and a bigger battery to power it) and 8GB of RAM.

Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus

If you’re after a big phone that has the most features in Samsung’s range of S10 phones, the S10 Plus is your best bet. In addition to having the same triple rear-camera setup as the S10, the S10 Plus has a second 8-megapixel selfie lens. The S10 Plus can be configured with up to 1TB of storage and 12GB RAM, which makes it the most capable phone Samsung has ever produced. Unlike the other S10 devices, the S10 Plus comes in three configurations. The bottom two configs feature a ceramic back instead of glass, which is no more resistant to cracks, but is more scratch-resistant and increases the phone’s weight to 198 grams versus 175 grams for the glass-backed models.

Carrier availability

  • Sprint offers the Galaxy S10 Plus for $41.67 per month over 18 billing cycles with a Sprint Flex lease. The carrier is offering a free S10E with purchase, paid back in monthly credits with purchase, though it requires an 18-month lease, and at least one new line and one upgraded line in your plan.

  • Verizon is pricing the S10 Plus at $41.66 per month for 24 months. For a limited time, buying the S10 Plus will get you an S10E, or $750 to use on another S10 or S10 Plus, paid back in monthly credits over the course of 24 months.
  • At T-Mobile, the S10 Plus starts at $22.23 per month for 36 months (after $199.99 down at purchase). If you have a trade-in, you can get half the cost of an S10E knocked off, and up to $390 off the purchase of an S10 or S10 Plus when you open a new line.
