Introduction

Just a little shy of two weeks ago, we witnessed the global launch of the Samsung Galaxy S10 series of smartphones, their 10th iteration of flagship smartphones. Then we got our hands on Samsung Galaxy S10+ and we are now bringing you our full in-depth review of this majestic phone.

Just how much has changed since the Galaxy S9 series? What and how are the new features found on Galaxy S10+ in terms of practicality? Let’s find out in this in-depth review of the Samsung Galaxy S10+.

Unboxing

We actually did an unboxing video of the Galaxy S10+ not too long ago, and you can watch it down below.

But if you are not into videos today, then let us just walk you through our thoughts and opinions on the new packaging that Samsung has bestowed upon the Galaxy S10 series of smartphones.

First off, the box design is completely different. Samsung made a vow recently to use sustainable materials for their packaging and the Galaxy S10 series of smartphones are the first to experience this overhaul in packaging. Opening up the box reveals the phone itself, which is quite typical.

At the back, we have the specs of the Galaxy S10+ listed up above.

On the lid itself is where the accessories box is found. We can only find the quick start guide here, but referring to unboxings from other countries – we found out that thereĀ is an included TPU case. As mentioned during our first impressions, the unit we have here is not the Malaysian retail unit – it is presumably from Netherlands.

Under the Galaxy S10+ we can find the whole slew of accessories. Once again, we get the same contents from previous iterations of the Samsung Galaxy S series of smartphones – just in a much more compact packaging. Here is the list of items inside the box itself.

  • The Galaxy S10+ (obviously)
  • Adaptive Fast Charger (15W)
  • USB-A male to USB-C male cable
  • Micro USB to USB-C adapter
  • USB-C to USB-A female adapter (OTG)
  • AKG earphones with different eartip sizes
  • Included TPU case (not in this variant)
  • Quick start guide

The AKG earphones and the cable has been packaged really compactly this time around – which I truly appreciate Samsung’s effort to use as minimal amount of materials as possible. There are no plastic wraps for any of the accessories too.
