Samsung has just launched its 2019 flagship smartphones, the Samsung Galaxy S10 lineup at the Samsung Unpacked event. Other products launched in the event were Samsung Galaxy Fold, Galaxy Buds, Galaxy Watch Active, Galaxy Fit etc. There are four variants of the flagship Galaxy S10 launched by the company – Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10+ and the Galaxy S10 5G. All of the phones are quite similar, but also different from each other.
Out of all the variants in the S10 lineup, the Samsung Galaxy S10 is the one which can be said as the mid-range phone of the Galaxy S10 series. Why? Because it holds the middle ground, it has all the specifications and features of its plus sized variant (Galaxy S10+) but it is also better than the S10e, which is the cheapest of the lot. The competitors of Galaxy S10 could be many smartphones, but today we are going to compare it with its popular rival Apple iPhone XS that is the mid-range iPhone of the ten S series.
