Samsung’s new Galaxy S20 launches in March, and with it comes some great news for us frugal shoppers. The Galaxy S10 lineup has been permanently discounted by $150. Although the S10 series doesn’t feature some of the bells and whistles shown off at Samsung’s recent “Galaxy Unpacked 2020” event — such as the 108MP camera — it’s still one of the best around.
This is the first permanent discount applied to the S10 lineup, but it isn’t the all-time lowest price we’ve seen. In fact, it’s very possible that the Galaxy S10 price will drop even further as Samsung tries to clear warehouse space for the Galaxy S20. However, if you’re currently in the market for a new phone, the newly-discounted Galaxy S10 should still be on your radar. Samsung is also offering a deal on select trade-in phones of up to $440, bringing the possible price of the S10 Plus to $409.99.
What does a Galaxy S10 cost with the discount?
The Galaxy S10 comes in three different models. All of them are highly recommended, but each offers users something a bit different.
- Samsung Galaxy S10e (New Reg Price: $599.99): The smallest of the three with a 5.8″ screen, 12MP and 16MP rear-facing cameras,and a Snapdragon 855 along with 6GB of RAM. This phone will work great for most consumers.
- Samsung Galaxy S10 (Nice Reg Price: $749.99): Features a 6.1″ Quad HD+ Super AMOLED screen, 12MP and 16MP rear cameras, and a Snapdragon 855 with 8GB of RAM. A great step-up for those who want a bigger screen and more processing power.
- Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus (New Reg Price: $849.99): The biggest of the bunch with a 6.4″ curved screen, 12MP and 16MP rear-facing cameras, and the same Snapdragon 855 processors as the previous two models. However, you can pick up the Galaxy S10 Plus with either 8 or 12GB of RAM. When it released in March 2019, this was one of the best Android phones on the market.
Should you buy the Galaxy S10 or the Galaxy S20?
Deciding which phone is the best for your budget and lifestyle can be difficult. The most important factor in picking out the best phone for you is figuring out how you plan to use it. Thankfully, all six of these phones are excellent products and you really can’t go wrong no matter what you choose.
If you mostly find yourself using your phone to surf the web, browse social media and check out the latest memes on Reddit, then do yourself a favor and skip the Galaxy S20, which range in price from $999.99 to $1,399.99. As enticing as it is to have the newest technology, you’ll be more than happy with the Galaxy S10. In fact, you can probably opt for the cheap Galaxy S10e and have no complaints.
If you are regularly running graphically intense games on your phone or need your phone to take the highest-quality pictures, the Galaxy S20 might be the better option. Just remember you can get the best Galaxy S10 available — the Galaxy S10 Plus — for $150 less than the cheapest version of the Galaxy S20. However, Samsung is currently running a trade-in and pre-order promotion for the Galaxy S20 that slashes the price by up to $700 — if you can take advantage of this discount then the S20 is the better deal by a landslide, no matter how you plan to use it.
Also note all Galaxy S20 models come with built-in 5G functionality, unlike the Galaxy S10. For last year’s flagship to work on 5G networks you’ll have to purchase a specific 5G model that is often sold out at retailers.
