The Galaxy S10 Plus may be the first major flagship phone of 2019, but it’s already clearly one of the best phones for the year. I say this even though the Galaxy S10E is a better value buy, even though the foldable Galaxy Fold and Galaxy S10 5G are right around the corner, and even with Huawei’s P30 Pro applying the heat with four rear cameras that could overpower the S10 Plus’ photo skills. Although the S10 Plus isn’t without fault (two major ones, really), but its 6.4-inch AMOLED screen, all-day battery life, wireless power-sharing feature and combination of three rear cameras are stellar.
