Although companies like Google have been busy releasing some fantastic new mobile devices in recent years, one name still sits on the throne in the Android kingdom: Samsung. Samsung has been killing it with its Galaxy smartphones for a decade now, and the aptly Galaxy S10 is one of its best handhelds yet. If you’re not big on iPhones or have been itching to switch to an Android, then now’s a fine time: This Amazon Lightning Deal lets you score a Galaxy S10 smartphone, a pair of Galaxy Buds, and a $50 Amazon gift card while saving you $450. Act fast, though; this deal is only available for the next few hours.

Samsung is celebrating the 10th anniversary of the introduction of its wildly popular Galaxy smartphone line this year. As its name implies, the Samsung Galaxy S10 is the 10th generation of this top-selling Android, and it’s no shocker that the new flagship a winner. It doesn’t re-invent the wheel, and it doesn’t have to – Samsung has refined the Android mobile formula well over the past decade (and has even released some great wearables lately), and the S10 is a testament to this.

Our review team had especially good things to say about the Galaxy S10’s hardware and app performance, excellent battery life, slick OneUI software interface, great triple-camera module, and gorgeous HRD10+ touchscreen display. We liked the Galaxy S10 Plus slightly better, but that’s a large phone and not everybody prefers a device that big (particularly those of us who carry our phones in our pocket instead of a bag). The fact is, if you want a normal-sized Samsung flagship, the Galaxy S10 is the one.

We also admitted that the mid-range Galaxy S10E was a better overall value than the Galaxy 10, but the S10E isn’t really a flagship-tier device – corners always get cut when the price point gets lowered. That’s why this Cyber Monday Lightning Deal is so awesome: For $624, you not only get a carrier-unlocked 128GB Samsung Galaxy S10 and a pair of truly wireless Galaxy Buds, but Amazon is also throwing in a free $50 gift card, saving you a total of $454. This Lightning Deal ends when Cyber Monday does, however, so jump on it now before it’s gone.

The OnePlus 10 Pro undercuts several thousand-dollar flagships at an $899 selling price. While it isn't fair to compare the OnePlus device with the top-of-the-line Galaxy S22 Ultra, the Galaxy S22 Plus is its direct competitor -- and they're two of the best Android smartphones that you can purchase today. But if you have $900 to $1,000 to spend, which of the two flagships should you buy? To help you answer the question, here is a comparison that pits the OnePlus 10 Pro against the Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus.

Camera shootout: Samsung Galaxy S22 vs. OnePlus 10 Pro
Samsung Galaxy S22 and OnePlus 10 Pro

The OnePlus 10 Pro is turning heads with its brave new design, top-tier specifications, and upgraded camera hardware. Samsung, on the other hand, has armed the Galaxy S22 with a bigger primary camera without paying much attention to its outer garb. The OnePlus offering wants to make a splash as the company’s best phone on the market, while the Galaxy S22 is Samsung’s entry-level flagship, with far modest camera hardware compared to its Ultra sibling. But they are both similarly priced. Wondering how the two would fare in a camera shootout? Read on to find out.
Camera specs
Both the phones offer a triple-camera setup in the familiar wide + ultrawide + telephoto configuration. The Galaxy S22 is equipped with a 50-megapixel (1.0 micrometer, 85-degree field of view [FOV] F1.8 lens, 1/1.56-inch sensor, optical image stabilization) primary shooter, paired with a 12-megapixel ultrawide-angle snapper (1.4 micrometer, 120-degree FOV, F2.2 lens, 1/2.55-inch sensor), and a 10-megapixel telephoto camera (1.0 micrometer, 36-degree FOV, 1/3.94-inch image sensor) with 3x optical zoom output and 30x hybrid zoom range. Selfie duties are handled by a 10-megapixel (1.22 micrometer, 80-degree FOV, F2.2 lens, 1/3.24-inch sensor) camera.

The OnePlus 10 Pro has beefier imaging hardware to offer. It packs a 48-megapixel (1/1.43-inch sensor, 1.12 micrometer, F1.8 lens, optical image stabilization) main camera, a 50-megapixel ultrawide-angle (1/2.76-inch sensor, 150-degree FOV) shooter, and an 8-megapixel telephoto (F2.4 lens, 1.0 micrometer, optical image stabilization) camera with 3.3x optical zoom range. On the front is an updated 32-megapixel camera with electronic image stabilization.
Daylight photos
On their own, both the phones feature a very capable primary camera, but the Galaxy S22 edges its OnePlus rival in some key areas. The Samsung Galaxy S22 goes for a more saturated look in daylight photos by default and produces a better contrast than the OnePlus 10 Pro’s main camera, which struggles with white balance under natural light. Both the phones produce terrific photos on their own, but the Galaxy S22’s camera algorithms race ahead when it comes to retaining surface textures. There is also less noise in pictures produced by the Galaxy S22.

Samsung saved your phone from a nasty security problem
Galaxy S22 Ultra and S21 Ultra camera modules.

Mobile security company Kryptowire published a blog post detailing a security breach it identified in Android 9, 10, 11, and 12 on Samsung smartphones earlier this year. The issue it found had serious consequences should a device be affected, and the company contacted Samsung. To its credit, Samsung reacted quickly to the problem and pushed its February 2022 security update out to remedy the issue.

Kryptowire's post detailing the problem is highly technical, but it serves as a good reminder of how important continued security updates are on Android devices. While most Samsung device owners have likely already protected themselves by downloading the security update, those without auto-updates turned on should make sure to bring their device up to date as soon as possible. On your Samsung phone, go to Settings>Software Update, and select Download and Install to check for any outstanding software updates. Then go back and turn Auto Download over Wi-Fi on.
