    Got the phone this morning. I've had a little play around with it. Obviously much better then my ageing Huwaei p9, but nothing amazing. I have a glass cover on the face, it does slowdown the fingerprint reader a little bit, but still effective.

    FYI Everyone,

    update your phone as soon as you get it, it improves the fingerprint reader :)

    Im also using the facial recognition, and I find that works really well

    got my s10+, looks huge compared to my S7. I don't like the curved edges, which is why I didnt upgrade previously to an S8 or S9. I'll need to find a case that protects the sides and front, with a style that is a few mm raised at the edges. I haven't seen a screen protecter that is tempered glass that works with the fingerprint sensor, so it's going to need some extra protection.

    Ordered mine through Optus at the start of the week, didn't get the phone today, hasn't even left the warehouse i'm told.
    What is the point of running a pre-order if i don't even get the device on release day? Such a fail by Optus and now it's a long weekend in Melbourne. RAGE





    Yes, bluetooth.

    This review sold me, and he is using them with his iPhone over Airpods..
    Think I would go for black though.

    Man just got my 2nd s10+ wow. What a phone. I previously had s9 and had s8 before that. Love the new wide cam! Buds are awesome! Looks like samsung moving in good direction. I will this is where new iphone should of been.

    I seen few previous post about fingerprint. Reagan it shouldn't be that bad. Initially I had problem with finger print. Now it gets it every single time!

    Why's that? You mean in terms of this is the first time you've used wireless headphones or they are just much better than what you've had before?

    Anyone’s s10e making it through a day comfortably? Obviously it’s how long is a piece of string but I’m thinking 6am off the charger, work, use here and there then back on the charger at 11pm.

    I have no problem going through the day. Off charger usually 5am, and don't have to recharge usually at 10pm

    I have no problem so far, but I don't use Viber or skype.


    My question now, is there a way to individually protect app, eg requires pins etc before you can open the app, like the OnePlus phones?
    I did some googling, you can do that with Secure folder, but the problem is, once you access the secure folder, you can access ALL apps that're in it without any verification again.

    Thanks rocku. Heard the exynos wasn’t as optimised from battery longevity so thought I’d ask.
