We had the opportunity to unbox and review this smartphone, and let our readers know about the truth of Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite, right here!
Read on for a quick review of the unboxing and first impressions of Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite.
Design and Build
The smartphone comes in various colors such as Prism White, Prism Black, and Prism Blue with a metal and glass body.
The body measures 75.6 x 162.5 x 8.1mm making it a tall and wide screen with a screen to body ratio of roughly 88%, and this is one of the biggest USPs of this smartphone.
The phone weighs 186 gms but feels much lighter.
The body has a sleek design which makes it a pleasure to hold the phone. It has a notch right in the middle on the top for the front camera, and this seems sensible as well.
All the physical buttons are positioned on the side of the body with a USB Type C port and speaker grille on the bottom. On the left side is a hybrid sim slot.
And, the sad part: The phone doesn’t have a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Display and Viewing Experience
The smartphone has a 6.7 inch tall screen with roughly 88% screen to body ratio. The screen has Full HD+ AMOLED Display with a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels.
We found the display very immersive with minimum bezels. In bright daylight, you won’t face any issues concerning brightness.The single handed use is significant despite it being a tall phone.
We found the display amazing and the multimedia consumption in terms of watching videos in HD was the best experience.
The smartphone has One UI 2.0 version and is based on Android 10.0. We found the UI to be very fluid and clean.
Hardware and Storage
The Galaxy S10 Lite is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor and is available in a single variant 8GB RAM and 128GB ROM. The hybrid sim slot containing MicroSD expansion is supported up to 1TB.
The old but superfast processor makes gaming a top notch experience. In terms of daily performance, Galaxy S10 Lite can run games with ease along with extensive multitasking.
Battery and Charging
Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite has a 4,500mAh battery with 25W super fast wired charging.
Sensors and Features

The face lock comes with an animation around the front camera signalling face detection.
The phone also has all the basic applications and none out of the way apps.
The smartphone is equipped with triple cameras at the back and one front camera. The primary 48 megapixel (f/2.0) camera features Super steady OIS which allows for increased stability in action-focused photos and videos. The other rear cameras are 12 MP (f/2.2) ultra-wide camera and 5 MP (f/2.4) macro camera.
The front camera is 32 MP (f/2.2).
The camera app in the phone is feature rich like live focus, ultra steady mode and the primary sensor which also clicks ultra steady shots.
Another amazing feature we liked is the video bokeh mode.
The ultra wide sensor has an fov of 123 degrees, probably the highest seen so far. The only con seen in the photos clicked using this feature is the barrel distortion around the photos.

As we like value for money phones, we think Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite to be a bit on the expensive side. In the near future, you can also get new phones for the same price but with a better processor.
