Default Samsung S10 Phone Range

Been waiting for this range to come out for a year given the improved battery life, and superior storage/cameras.

Samsung S10+ specs

6.4" Screen
1TB Storage
12GB RAM
4,100mAH battery

What a beast of a phone. Retailing for 1,400 or so (So probably $1,400 in the US)

Was gonna ask why in the name of everything holy you would need 12GB of RAM on a phone. Then saw Samsung, so I assume 8 of it will be always loaded bloatware.

I'd like a phone that folds, but I think I'll hold out for some other brand.

The phone folds, but it opens into a (small) tablet.

I'd rather buy an iPhone and an iPad mini...cheaper.

1 TB is nice

that being said I bought an S9 a couple months ago, so most likely I'll be getting the S11 when that rolls out

The tech on the folding screen looks better than I thought it would but it still seems pretty clunky when folded and not in its tablet mode. For me it needs to be thinner when folded and the screen on the folded side needs to be better before I would consider buying one (especially at that price).

It seems like a good first iteration and I'll be excited to see someone using it in public for the first time.
