Is this deal still on? I put in my IMEI for an old ZTE Axon 7 I have and the estimated trade in value was 0. :rolleyes:
It shows up as $0 that’s what ur phone is worth but you’ll get $200 off at the end when u checkout

Anyone still haven't got a notice to send in their trade in device? No notification, shipping label or any details.

Safe to just wait for the email or should I inquire? I'm assuming they will charge me if they don't receive it?

Samsung Galaxy S10e: The Right-Handed Mensch Phone







It's notable that this British guy finds the finger print sensor challenging for his left-handedness, but works nicely if you're right-handed. It's also faster than the fingerprint reader on the S10/S10+.

The screen is better than retina on the 10e, you should not notice the slightly lower resolution. The lack of telephoto lens typically only matters for teenage girls and you shouldn't miss it. No one cares about Gorilla Glass 5 vs 6. The slightly smaller battery is no big deal since the 10e uses slightly less power. The smaller punch hole on the 10e is also another plus.

The S10e keeps:
Snapdragon 855
8gb / 256gb RAM option
microSD expansion
Dual Speakers
Dynamic OLED with HDR10+ (slightly lower res, not noticeable)
Fast Wireless Charging
Wireless Power Sharing
IP68 Water Resistance
... most everything else

The flat screen on the S10e also allows you to use hard glass screen protectors again, something that continues to be challenging on rounded screens like the S10(+).

Samsung clearly made the 10e too good of a phone.

What a pointless thing to say. Do you even know what a 'telephoto' lens means?

Hint: teenage girls probably would never use it.

Crawl back in your hole.

I feel like I asked for that, I figured that one little jibe in my wall of text would slip through unnoticed.

Truthfully, I'm sure nature and city scape photographers would make most use of it... among many other uses. It's not for me though.

Relax, bud.

Nature photographers MIGHT get some use out of it, city scape? Nope. They use wider focal lengths.

For those interested: the 'telephoto' lens on the S10/10+ has a 35mm eq of about 52mm. This is roughly 2X the 'standard' camera on smart phones (they usually are in the 24-28mm eq range).

~50mm was the 'standard' or 'normal' lens in 35mm photography for many decades. It's meant to more closely match what human vision perceives (although most would agree that around 40mm is closer to what humans perceive).

As for uses, well, until smart phones (and to a lesser extent some 35mm point and shoots), 50mm was the first lens that every photographer had, and the lens most photographers used by far the most. So it's use, is well, everything. Many people are now more used to a wider viewpoint, but the presence of a 50mm eq will change many to start using that.

It is a MUCH more flattering eq focal length for portraiture then the 'normal' wide lens on a smartphone (although going longer is better, most would consider 85mm the bare minumum, many prefer the 100mm range, and 135mm is not un-heard of). Note that I'm NOT talking about bokeh here, but the compression distortion that changes based on the FOV of a lens.

The 50mm eq is also very useful when you're trying to 'reach' something.

All in all, that lens will be as useful for many photographers as the standard wide. Only the ultrawide brings something 'new' to many people.

Did Samsung lower the price of the S10+ 512GB Ceramic Black? Is it $1749 originally or $1949?

Gentlemen, let's get a real comparison going.

Source: https://www.cnet.com/news/galaxy-s10-vs ... ce-better/

The only thing missing, of note, is the following:
- Galaxy S10 - 6.1-inch Dynamic AMOLED+, 19:9 aspect ratio, 1440 x 3040 pixels (550 ppi), 1200 nits brightness, Gorilla Glass 6 (front screen), Gorilla Glass 5 (rear)
- Galaxy S10e - 5.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED+, 19:9 aspect ratio, 1080 x 2280 pixels (438 ppi), 1200 nits brightness, Gorilla Glass 5 (front and back)
If only Samsung comes out with a S10e +, I would buy it right away!

Actually all carriers have it for $1949 with no term! Makes their trade in offers absurd.

That would be too attractive, drawing sales away from the flagship.

So would you guys go for the S10 or S10e after a week of use n testing? I still have my pre order from Samsung store that I have yet to collect, still looking at carrier deals but I think with the 10gb plan at $65 no contract, buying outright seems the answer.
