Design and 360-degree spin.
We could pretend it’s not there, but it wouldn’t make it magically disappear, so let’s address it. It’s the pill-shaped cutout in the top right corner of the display, an extension to the punch hole style solution to what is perhaps the most pressing issue in the industry – where to fit the selfie cam in the absence of a top bezel. We haven’t heard a single person say they specifically like punch hole selfie cameras, in isolation – at best, people will say a punch hole is a little less objectionable than a full-on iPhone X style notch, but even that opinion isn’t universal
6.4-inch HDR10+ capable Dynamic AMOLED: The smartphones in the Galaxy S10 family are equipped with Samsung’s first Dynamic AMOLED displays. It’s like the Super AMOLEDs of yesteryear, but with an emphasis on HDR – these Galaxies are the first smartphones to support HDR10+ (the ‘+’ is what counts here). But most importantly, these panels are much better now. The S10+ in particular has a 6.4-inch panel with 1440x3040px resolution – QuadHD+, if you’re so inclined, in a 19:9 aspect ratio. Pixel density works out to a plentiful 526ppi.
