[Video] Samsung Galaxy S10: Everything that Samsung got wrong

Samsung did a lot of good things with the Samsung Galaxy S10 series. They revamped the design, slimmed down the bezels, offered more size and color choices, and much more. However, no phone is perfect, and XDA TV’s Daniel Marchena has been proving that with his “Everything [BLANK] Got Wrong” videos. The latest device to go under the microscope is the Galaxy S10.

Before you go hating on Daniel, keep in mind that this series of videos is partially intended to be satire. He’s pointing out very small things that many people won’t even notice. Daniel uses the Galaxy S10e in the video, but his points concern the Galaxy S10 series as a whole. Here are a few of his complaints:

  • Uncomfortable raised ridge where the metal meets the glass
  • Curved displays aren’t practical
  • Bad in-display fingerprint sensor
  • Removing the Iris Scanner
  • Annoying camera cutout
  • One UI is a step backward
  • Dark Mode feels unfinished
  • Overprocessed photos

Watch the full video below to see Daniel’s full rant!
