The Galaxy S10 is the smoothest so far of any Galaxy flagship in terms of the general user interface. I've always been extra critical about Samsung's inadequacy in optimizing the software compared to others here at SamMobile, but I've found fewer reasons to complain in recent years. The Galaxy Note 9 was the most impressive of all Galaxy flagships in terms of daily performance for me, until I switched to the Galaxy S10 +.
As I said in our Galaxy S10 + review, the device feels smoother than any other Galaxy. Maybe it's the newer Exynos chipset, maybe it's Android Pie, maybe Samsung has decided to optimize things for the Galaxy S line-up for the tenth anniversary, maybe it's the 8 GB RAM, or maybe it's a combination of all or some of those factors, but I can't get enough of how fast and smooth the Galaxy S10 + works. The extra RAM may even have something to do with it, because the Galaxy S10e (with 6GB RAM) feels closer to the Galaxy Note 9 in terms of daily use than the Galaxy S10 +.
I can already imagine some of the incoming comments from our readers, and I wonder how it is possible that I noticed performance problems on Samsung's flagship phones, while that is not the case. Frankly, I think I'm just a little too impatient and easily get irritated when I want to do things too quickly and a phone can't keep up. But the Galaxy S10 + keeps track of every question from mine without breaking a sweat. Again, the general user interface is where I noticed the difference, and I can only hope that it will not be affected when Android Q comes along or because my S10 + fills up more data in the coming months.
Do you think your Galaxy S10 feels faster and smoother than your previous Galaxy flagship?
