The phone does overheat and the phone takes so long to charge.
The user interface is more suited for a teen than an adult, very poor. My phone overheats and is very slow to charge. If I had my way again I would not contemplate purchasing this phone. iPhones for me from now on!

My work phone but memory trap is saddening
Love the camera but not as good as my iPhone 11 Pro Max. Not worth the money if you're upgrading for S9+ because everything is basically the same. Just that the camera has moved
Moisture has been detected
Every other time I plug in my charger it says moisture has been detected, beeps like a [words removed] and refuses to charge. Not what I expected. Really annoying.

Battery battery battey
My S10 is about a month old now, I run face book, occasional you tube vid at most two 10 minute vids, no net flix etc. and gmail. I woke with 100% battery this morning and every morning 2.5 hours later I am at 40% battery I wonder what it will be like in 2 years?

In a word: Over-rated
Six months into ownership and it's time to pass on my thoughts.
At the time I bought the S10+, I was looking at three cameras, including the equivalent iPhone and Huawei models. First choice after speaking with other users, and even 'cadging' a brief use of friends' phones, the Huawei came in hands down favourite, predominantly on one factor. As a photographer, I loved its camera setup. Unfortunately, the day I went to make my purchase was the day Telstra withdrew the Huawei from sale due to the licencing problems I believe Huawei were having...with Google. Because my 6-y.o. semi-smart phone had chucked in its knife and fork and I needed a phone (I have no home phone service thanks to NBN), I tossed a (mental) coin. It came down in favour of the Samsung. As a phone, I find it does most things I want as I want them done, with the possible exception that touching the green phone does not always give a clean connection. I've been back to Telstra once with this and must again. My almost 80-y.o. fingers have highly worn prints and I find the slippery surface of the S10+ just that (for which reason it now has a leather fold-back cover. Worst aspect of it is the camera, which I find pretty ordinary in many circumstances. It grabs good light in awkward situations but I find its algorithms tend to overcompensate, especially with blues. Comparisons are odious, but seeing most modern upmarket phones attempt to infer they are generally capable of replacing your camera, a comparison must inevitably be made. I have two DSLRs, a mid-market Canon 6D and a fairly basic Nikon D5300, my favourite because it's light, fits the hand so well, and takes a great shot, but I can't make a call with it so it means I must still carry two devices for two purposes. I'll give the Samsung S10+ a pass mark of 3 1/2 stars.

Amazing camera and video quality
Upgrade the Mrs from IPhone X to S10+ with 512G. Bought it at JB for $1849, the price was steep, however under monthly contract with Telstra it does not seem that bad with 80G of data.
Now for the phone, quite a large phone with very nice edge to edge screen. The touch screen is as good as those of the iPhone. The battery life so far last longer than the update old iPhone.
What we like about the device was the video playback quality. Even the YouTube clip looked amazing. One annoying feature is the small notch located upper right. Not as b...ig as those of the iPhone X but it is there. The finger scan is good as those of the old iPhone. The photos taken by S10+ is wow,so far we tested under low light, through a car windscreen while raining, through a fish tank. Hand down better then iPhone X.
Poor outcome when a problem arises
My Galaxy S10+ exhibited a problem in answering more than half of my phone calls. More than half my calls went to voicemail. With Samsung Customer Service advice I tested my sim in another phone, it proved that the phone had a problem. They advised me that I could take the phone back to JB hifi for warranty repair. JB hifi said that the phone may be away for up to six weeks. A while later I got a call that I must pay for a screen glass replacement before it would be fixed.
Although Samsung charge Apple equivalent prices their Customer Service ...

Questions & Answers
my new galaxy s10+ had a software download which I did, and when prompted to add pin to re-open phone it said incorrect pin. now I cannot even turn off the phone without using a pin. I was told to go to my nearest Samsung store which was 2 hours away, so not an option. poor technical service. my provider was more help, in the end it was deemed a fault in the software so a new phone is on its way. is this a common problem??
I’m sorry to hear about your experience Jacinta, it’s certainly not the customer experience we strive for.
We would requiem the phone to be brought into one of our Samsung Studio in order to look further into this for you and I’m sorry that we don’t have one in your area.
I’m glad to hear that you were able to get this resolved but please don’t hesitate to reach out to us if there are any issues in the future.
Our best point of contact is to send us a PM on Facebook with a copy of this review and some more information.
Is the screen protector that the phone has on it when you purchase it, a good one? Would I be better putting a tempered glass one on it instead?
Hi Elizabeth, we recommend for you to use a genuine screen protector on your S10+.
