After 3 months of using this phone, I absolutely love it especially the camera and particularly the wide angle camera. All smartphone in 2019 must have a wide angle camera.
I’ve owned Samsung Galaxy S3 and then upgraded to Galaxy S6, after about 5 years it’s about time to upgrade to new phone. Since I so used with the S3 and S6 size, I opted to pre-order the S10e. Furthermore, I refused to spend more than RM3k for a phone and I don’t miss the zoom camera on S10.
The camera… is AMAZING! I love what Samsung done to it especially on S10e. Samsung put all the same camera sensor on all 3 variants, the quality on S10e camera is exactly the same as S10 and S10+.
The best thing about the camera is how well the phone control the exposure and the HDR is very effective. I even wish this computational photography existed on my DSLR. Photo below show how great S10e at controlling the exposure vs Nikon D600 without post processing.
Low light also amazing, it become more amazing with the current update when Samsung give a “manual” Night Mode features where at launch Night Mode only available thru AI scene detection. However, the Night mode on extremely dark photo is not as good as Huawei and Pixel phone.
All pictures take with auto mode with some of it with HDR Auto. This is an ISOCELL sensor version. Samsung apparently release Galaxy S6 / Edge with 2 version of sensor The Sony IMX240 and Samsung ISOCELL.

The camera is very responsive, from display off the camera ready to take the shot less than 1 second by double clicking the home button.
The dynamic range and the exposure control is amazing for a camera phone. The auto focus is fast and highly accurate.
Galaxy S6 perform very well in low light night shots. Superb exposure control. To see the unedited night shots click HERE.
