Here's how to tell the S10E, S10, and S10 Plus apart, and decide which one's right for you.
Let's start with price, from least expensive to most expensive.
The cheapest is the S10E, starting at $750 in the US.
In the middle is the S10 at $900 and the S10 plus starts at $1,000.
Each of the S10 phone shares a similar design.
The E has a 5.8-inch flat amoled display compared to the edge to edge amoleds on the other two phones.
The S10 is 6.1 inches while the aptly named plus Has the largest screen at 6.4 inches.
The bigger phones also have a higher resolution than the S10 E.
All the phones share the distinct hole punch camera at the front of the screen, but the S10 Plus adds a second front facing camera to capture depth information.
