Reviewers from notebookcheck have found the following[***]:
The Super AMOLED Plus display of the Galaxy S10 Lite measures 6.7 inches diagonally. While it only offers FHD+ resolution, we appreciate its high luminosity. While the quality is fairly good, professional users may notice a deviation from the reference colors in a few cases. The smartphone can be biometrically protected by 2D facial recognition.

Reviewers from techadvisor have found the following[***]:
The Galaxy S10 Lite is a £579 phone, which means it sits somewhere between mid-range and flagship in the market. As standard, this comes with 128GB of storage as standard, plus the usual microSD card slot for adding more if you need to - up to 1TB. Samsung touts two-day battery life and for the lighter users out there like me, this may well be possible. There's no wireless charging here which is a shame but also an acceptable feature to miss out on to achieve the price.

Pros[**]
  • Great value for money
  • Excellent cameras
  • Excellent battery life
Cons[**]
  • No wireless charging
  • No microSD card slot

Sentiment Score[*] 83%
Reviewers from techradar have found the following[***]:
The Galaxy S10 Lite doesn't have the best phone camera on the market, but it does a very respectable job nevertheless. In good lighting it's hard to distinguish the photos this phone takes from the ones captured by the much more expensive flagships. You don't get 5G on this phone, which is another way you can tell it's not a premium-level flagship. There's no wireless charging here, but you do get 45W fast charging (more on the battery shortly)

Pros[**]

  • Decent cameras
Cons[**]
  • No 5G
  • No wireless charging

Reviewers from tomsguide have found the following[***]:
The Galaxy S10 Lite is a massive 6.7-inch smartphone that is larger than even the 6.4-inch S10 Plus. Samsung made some trade-offs for that big screen, though. The phone sports a 48-megapixel wide-angle lens with Super Steady optical image stabilization. It also has a 12-MP ultra-wide-angle shooter and a 5-MP macro lens.

Pros[**]
  • Gorgeous 4,500 mAh battery
  • Fantastic cameras
Cons[**]
  • Lacklustre performance

Sentiment Score[*] 84%
Reviewers from trustedreviews have found the following[***]:
The Galaxy S10 Lite runs on a Snapdragon 855 processor, a chipset that powered many of 2019’s best phones. Everyday tasks where accomplished with ease, and I did not experience any stuttering or sudden app shutdowns. The base software here is Android 10, with OneUI 2.0 overlaid. The battery has a 4500mAh capacity, matching the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and beating all other handsets in the S10 range.

Pros[**]
  • Excellent camera performance
  • Good battery life
  • Decent performance
Cons[**]
  • No headphone jack
  • Poor low-light camera performance
