Samsung Galaxy M10 Review


Samsung Galaxy M10 is the first smartphone from Samsung with the display notch design. As we would see it, it seems a little premium over its Xiaomi or Realme partners. The way that it is the in vogue water drop show configuration makes the Samsung Galaxy M10 significantly progressively compelling. The minute you get the gadget, the first thing you will notice is its lightweight. This is because of the plastic form of the Samsung Galaxy M10 which is an all in or all out idea since we have gotten familiar with metallic boards in this value section.

The device feels strong, yet you won't consider testing it with a drop, all as a result of its light-weight plan and the dread of giving it a mark. The Samsung Galaxy M10 is accessible in Ocean Blue and Charcoal Black hues, the two of which looks extraordinary however the previous emerges with its increasingly premium look. Our survey unit was the Ocean Blue shading. Samsung has a background marked by making attractive gadgets, and Galaxy M10 is no special case. Indeed, even with the polycarbonate body, Samsung has made it look so great that you can parade it without a spread. As far as plan, the reflexive body feels a lot lighter and it is anything but difficult to hold. Having said that, both front and back of M10 is inclined to fingerprints.


2G/ 3G / 4G type of network has available for this Samsung Galaxy M10 Smartphone. You can use two SIM cards (Nano-SIM+Nano-SIM) and a microSD card at the same time. Both slots support 4G VoLTE as well. Interestingly, the SAR value of The Galaxy M10 is probably the lowest in this segment at 0.273W/kg (Head SAR).

Design and Display

On the front, the Samsung Galaxy M10 gloats of a 6.2-inch Infinity-V display with HD+ (720p) display, which looks great and offers punchy colors. This one is a TFT LCD board, yet despite everything it makes for a decent quality visual experience. The little 'water drop' indent packs the selfie camera and after that there is a thick chin at the bottom. Outwardly, there isn't quite a bit of contrast forthright with Galaxy M20, however one can see with little consideration. The recordings look really great on M10's showcase, and Wide vine L1 confirmation implies you'll have the capacity to stream HD content through all prominent gushing applications.

You have the vertically adjusted double back camera setup at the upper left corner of the back board alongside the LED glimmer while the speaker is put the comfortable bottom left corner of the back. While the design appears to be down to earth and clear, the fingerprint scanner has been given a miss while the setting of the sound speaker probably won't run well with individuals considering utilizing the Samsung Galaxy M10 for multimedia consumption including streaming videos along with watching games.

The Samsung Galaxy M10 offers a tested and wonderful design, yet a metal casing could have given us more confidence. The setting of the sound speaker is to some degree odd however at long last holding a Samsung smartphone with a display notch and that too a water drop one feels incredible. The one thing we didn't care for at about the Samsung Galaxy M10, aside from the missing fingerprint scanner, was the way that the plastic backboard is inclined to scratches which can ruin the general look of the smartphone.

The display panel offers a broad land for sight and sound utilization while the splendor levels and survey points are likewise great. The best piece of the 6.2-inch HD+ Infinity-V show was the way that after quite a while we saw a gadget at this value point offering adequate measure of color under direct daylight to do fundamental activities effortlessly. So, the goals are restricted to 720p and keeping in mind that the shading immersion is somewhat delicate, the yield turns out more keen than our desires. 

There is additionally a 'blue light' channel which is turning into a standard component in all financial plan smartphones from Samsung. To put it plainly, it is a standout amongst the best presentation boards in the fragment which you can use for broadened mixed media utilization. 

Generally, the Galaxy M10 configuration is useful at its cost and it is a lot sleeker than M20, so feels better in hands. Its USP is the Infinity-V display, which is much like a waterdrop-style screen that you currently observe from numerous Chinese makers. Thinking of it as comes reasonably with Samsung Galaxy M10, purchasers would be pleased.

Samsung Galaxy M10Camera

The camera department is again one of the strongest points for the Samsung Galaxy M10. The smartphone included a 13-megapixel essential back camera with an f/1.9 opening, LED Flash and a secondary 5-megapixel ultra-wide edge camera offering f/2.2 gap. At the front, there is a 5-megapixel camera with f/2.0 gap. This has to be the first smartphone from Samsung in the segment which comes with a dual rear camera module and that too, including a wide angle lens. From the outside, it feels that the company has left no stone unturned to show that they can also deliver on the ‘More for less’ challenge in this budget segment.

This brings us to real-life performance. To start with, the camera app is easy to get used to and offers all the major settings on the main interface itself. While going through the camera modes, you will realize that there is no portrait mode in the Samsung Galaxy M10 camera, but you do get modes such as Live Focus, Panorama, Beauty, and Stickers.

Coming to the rear camera module, it turned out to be a mixed bag for us, however, shot taken from the device in auto mode impressed us as the Samsung Galaxy M10 was able to capture model details and colors than our expectations. In outdoor shots, almost all pictures came out nice with an adequate amount of color reproduction and details. Even when you zoom in on the pictures after importing them on your laptop, the clarity remains above average as compared to other smartphone cameras in the segment. There was no sort of blurred effect in pictures taken in a jiffy. However, you do need a steady hand to get the most out of the camera.

Even the wide-angle lens works perfectly fine without any compromises on the shutter speed or focus. However, there is a substantial loss of details in pictures taken with the wide angle lens as there are less color output and picture come out less sharp. That said, having a budget smartphone in your hand with a perfectly-wrong wide angle lens did feel great during our extended use of the Samsung Galaxy M10.

The case was not the same with the 5-megapixel front camera which offers f/2.0 aperture as results came out a little grainy in comparison to the rear camera. However, the Live Focus feature for bokeh shots stands out in the competition as it perfectly edges out the face from the rest of the background. Nothing was surprising as such in selfies taken under good exposure, while shot taken under low-light conditions missed more on details and had a lot of noise. But then again, what else do you expect from a smartphone at this price range.

Samsung Galaxy M10Operating System

When Samsung might have thought about the Galaxy M10, it might have envisioned it as one of the most balanced devices in the budget segment, and this is what we see here, at least on the specs sheet. The Samsung Galaxy M10 is powered by the company’s octa-core Exynos 7870 processor clocked at 1.59 GHz coupled with ARM Mali T830 GPU. The Samsung Galaxy M10 also runs Android 8.1.0 Oreo with Samsung’s Experience UI on top and supports dual SIM connectivity with Dual 4G VoLTE.

Storage and Ram

Samsung Galaxy M10 pack 2GB RAM with 16GB internal storage, just as 3GB RAM and 32GB inward capacity. Our survey unit included 3GB RAM, which is the higher variation. I feel the 16GB stockpiling is extremely less in current age cell phones, however, Samsung has compensated for it with three individual spaces, which implies you can utilize two SIM cards (Nano-SIM+Nano-SIM) and a microSD card in the meantime.


As mentioned at the beginning of this review, this is a new inning for Samsung with a fresh approach. With the Samsung Galaxy M10, the South Korean maker has finally done a great job at packaging it with all the basic features and adding a premium touch to the overall experience such as the waterdrop display notch, a secondary wide angle lens at the rear, average hardware and a long lasting battery backup.

Now the biggest question, should you buy the Samsung Galaxy M10? Well, if multimedia consumption, extended battery life, and good camera performance are what you are looking for, the Samsung Galaxy M10 is one of the best options.
