Samsung S10 upgrade or downgrade from S7 edge? Here are my thoughts...

(Topic created on: 07-05-2019 11:07 PM)

Ok guys, here is my honest thoughts and isses that I found on my S10 right out of box after less then 30 minutes of use. 
First of all I want to say that I'm huge fan of Samsung Smartphones. Im not here to troll! In past I had S2,S3,S4,S5,Note 4 and now for almost 3 years now I been used my S7 edge and I love it. Amazing phone!
Now, few days ago price for S10 with 2 years contract on the Sweden Comviq operator drooped to 39 Euros with 10Gb net and free calls. I thought: Wow! This is a good deal! It's time for big upgrade. Finally i can replace my S7edge! It's been like ages.
Ok,I pull the trigger and order S10 120Gb (white color) and I was super excited about it! Just two days later i received my package, I open it up and my excitement started to go down very, very fast...
In short here what I found in less then 30 minutes:
S10 can't switch between cameras in video recording 1080P 60fps and 4K 60fps mode. You are stuck with only main camera.
S10 don't have PRO mode for video recording.
S10 have lower low light and indoors pictures quality compare to my S7 edge and my wife S8.
S10 have Power-button way up on the side which make it very hard to use with one hand.
S10 on the You-tube App has only 1080p resolution supported while my S7 edge has 1440p
S10 has no higher screen brightness when watching videos on you-tube app compare to my S7 edge tested 50% up to 100% brightness. 
S10 feels a bit more hollow inside when you knock it with the finger on the back glass compare to my S7 edge.
S10 USB C charging port is soldered directly to the motherboard so If you damage it basically you have to replace whole motherboard ( For this last one I seen S10 tare-down video on YouTube)
Maybe I forgot anything... 
Anyway, I got to say that for the price of 1000Euros (in most of the Sweden stores) I found S10 to be very disappointing smartphone.  For me personally it feels more like a downgrade from my S7 edge and for sure not a upgrade.
What I also found a very frustrating is a fact that not even one ''PRO'' reviewers on YouTube mention any of this on their S10 video reviews!? I simply can not believe it!... 
So what I did on the end? Sadly, I put my S10 back to the package and I send it back to the Comviq.
It seems that I will stay with my S7 edge until Samsung fix these issues on the S10.
If not I hope that S11 will be better. Time will tell... 
Big thanks to the Comviq Sweden for letting me to return S10 back and roll back my old monthly subscription!
