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.
