The Galaxy S10e (opens in new tab), Samsung's most affordable S10 variant, does a lot right for its relatively small price tag. Speaking of small, it also has the smallest battery capacity of the entire S10 family coming in at 3,100 mAh.

Despite its smaller nature, some of our AC forum members actually seem quite pleased with its performance.

After about 3 weeks of use and just a little tweeking, I can honestly say I am pleased with this 3rd option from samsung. Probably not alot of S10e folks but I am one of them and yes I have the big boys too. And I continue to use it as my Daily Driver. What a package for folks that needed a compact phone with a flat screen.


So glad you're liking it! It takes a while for the battery to adjust to your specific user patterns - it's good that you stuck with it and tweaked things around! I gotta say, in actually considering the S10e. I want the P30 but the S10e has a flat screen and is IP 68 certified, and is less money... How are you liking the side fingerprint scanner? I think it's so innovative. I think Nokia...


I have the Exynos version and the battery lasts me 2 days easily!

  • And Pixel 3 XL users lose at least 10% overnight with the phone just sitting there in safe mode.
  • I have a regular Pixel 3, which is supposed to have lesser battery life, and I lose around 9% overnight, not in safe mode, and with everything running (mobile data, WiFi, BT, NFC, GPS, etc).
  • How's your battery life on the Galaxy S10e? Since the Galaxy S10e is the smallest device of the bunch, it is natural to offer a smaller battery. It’s an 3,100 mAh unit inside may not sound so good but it was able to squeeze out more than decent runtimes. On the other side the video playback time and the standby scores were the ones that boosted the overall durability score to 83 for Galaxy S10e.
