Great phone but heavy
NOTE: This is S10 5G Review - for some reason the settings won't stick.
I find this phone does everything I want; it takes great photo's, has enough storage, and has a fast enough processor to keep things ticking along. The battery life is amazing too - I have forgotten to charge it and managed to get through 48hrs including playing music/youtubes while I walk (screen off mostly).
The downsides are that it is heavy - enough to make one handed operation awkward to impossible. There is a lack of cases generally in AU (I ordered a Spigen from ...USA), firmware updates seem to lag the more popular S10, and 5G is a bit mythical. I've not seen any 'speedtest' run on my phone that was "wow" yet - certainly nothing good 4G couldn't provide. Not a fault of the phone, just the lack of network - it will change in time. Oh, and there's no heart rate hardware on the 5G - or at least the software doesn't expose it. In hindsight, I would probably have been better off sticking with the S10+ So good phone, but unless you really crave the extra camera's (I still have yet to see an advantage over my wife's regular S10), you might be better with the S10+

better than the note 5
to start off with I thought to have 3 cameras were not going to be anything special but oh my gosh do my photos come out amazing and clear. even the front camera is amazing and with the use of an otterbox case I haven't had to worry about the durability of my phone so I suggest a case the first day of buying the phone the brightness can be controlled so at night it automatical dims and in sunlight, it goes brighter. I use my phone for everything from emails to video calls and tik tok videos. the speed of the 5g phone is amazing too when everything loads quickly and smoothly. if you have had a Samsung before you know how good they are and a lot of apple users are converting to Samsung. 10/10
