Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite: About the hardware

The Samsung S10 Lite was released in February 2020, so the tech you get is still some of the most up-to-date around.

Samsung S10 Lite key features

  • Edge-to-edge display

  • 6.7" FHD+ AMOLED display

  • Multiple cameras 5MP/48MP/12MP

  • 4K video

  • 4G connectivity

  • Large battery

  • Fingerprint technology

  • Expandable storage (128 GB internal)

  • Variety of colours

Samsung S10 Lite storage

The S10 Lite comes with 128GB, so you can’t choose between different storage capacities. Still, this is a significant size, particularly as storage can also be expanded using an SD card.

Samsung S10 Lite battery

Boasting the largest battery in the S10 family (joint with the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G), the S10 Lite comes with a 4500mAh battery which translates to a whole day's use on one charge. It’s a very strong battery offering compared to the S10 which comes in at 3400mAh.

Samsung S10 Lite colours

The Samsung S10 Lite is limited in colour choice:

  • Prism White

  • Prism Black

What is the difference between the Samsung S10 Lite and the S10 or S10E?

The simplest answer is the price. The S10 Lite is designed to be a more affordable member of the S10 family while retaining a powerful battery and large screen size. However, this means that compromises have to be made, such as the screen resolution, which is weaker than the S10 or S10 5G. The processor is also a slight step down and charging modes such as wireless and reverse charging have been removed. 

Samsung S10 Lite camera specs

For a phone at the more affordable end of the scale, the S10 Lite still packs a punch when it comes to cameras:

  • 32MP selfie camera 

  • 48MP/12MP/5MP triple rear camera

The 48MP lens is a step up compared to the standard S10, but the 12MP is a step down, and the selfie camera also drops down a little in terms of focus.

The Live Focus feature for videos helps perfect your shooting as well as letting you edit with ease. Again, though, the capabilities may fall a little short compared to the S10 or the Samsung Galaxy Note 10, which gives you the option to manipulate and correct audio from your phone too. 

Samsung S10 Lite security

The S10 Lite unlocks with fingerprint recognition, so it takes no time at all to access your phone.

What are the best Samsung S10 Lite deals?

The best phone deal is the one that ticks as many of your boxes as possible – keep an eye out for all the following features of any phone deal you are considering:

  • Is the contract length suitable for you?

  • Is the upfront cost/monthly payment a good deal?

  • Do you get good roaming coverage for your travels?

  • Do you get free trials to apps like Amazon Prime Video or Disney+?

  • Are there options for free data or deals?

  • Are there any customer perks?

  • Will prices jump up after a year for inflation?

How much is the S10 Lite?

The S10 Lite isn't as expensive as the S10 and certainly not as expensive as the S10 Plus which can cost the best part of £1,000. You can expect to pay around £600 for a brand new S10 Lite on a handset-only deal. You could alternatively go for a refurbished phone which was designed to be top-of-the-range, which is now a little older and cheaper. Pre-owned phones can be a great way to get affordable, quality mobiles without settling for a brand's cheaper alternative to their flagship.

Samsung S10 Lite deals on pay monthly

Currently, the following networks offer the S10 Lite on a pay monthly contract:

  • EE

  • O2

  • Vodafone

  • Three

  • Virgin Media

  • Sky mobile

The affordability of the S10 Lite can clearly be seen on pay monthly contracts, where prices often start around the £20 mark, making it about half the price of an S10. 

As mentioned before, many networks also increase prices once a year for inflation. That means if your contact is two years long, you will face two price increases, though these are often no more than 3%.

Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus on pay as you go

You can get the S10 Plus on pay as you go with:

  • giffgaff

  • O2

  • Three

  • BT

Pay as you go options will start around £600 with an obligatory top-up usually required at a minimum spend of £10. If you do go for this option, make sure the phone is unlocked or that the network will be happy to unlock your phone in the future, as this will let you switch providers once your original top-up ends.

Samsung S10 Lite accessories 

The S10 Lite is compatible with all the leading Samsung accessories, and as with other S10 models, you may be able to add the cost of these to your plan to pay off month by month:

  • Galaxy Buds+

  • Galaxy watch

Remember that reverse charging is not available with the Lite, so that extra level of compatibility is removed.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can the Samsung S10 Lite use 5G?

No, only the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G can do this.

Is it worth buying an S10 Lite?

Yes, if you want the reliable tech that comes with a brand like Samsung. Where corners may have been cut, such as in the screen resolution, extras have arguably been added to rival even the S10 standard, such as the powerful battery and the 49MP camera.

Is the S10 Lite a budget phone?

It is designed to be affordable, but as we’ve seen, it’s still not the cheapest mobile around. It’s definitely good value though.

Is the Samsung S10 Lite better than the Samsung S10E?

In terms of price and battery, yes, but in terms of overall performance, probably not. The Lite is designed to be a value-for-money entry into the S10 family, while the S10E's main priority is to be a more compact version of the S10. While you might not get the polish that comes with the S10E, the S10 Lite is based on the same sleek blueprint. 

Is the Samsung S10 Lite water-resistant?

Yes, the S10 Lite shares the same dust, dirt and water resistance rating as other S10 models, which is IP68.
