Hands-on: How does the Samsung Galaxy S10e compare to the Google Pixel 3?

People have been clamoring for high-end “compact” phones for years and they finally have some good options. Slim bezels have allowed devices to increase screen size and still offer relatively small form factors. The Samsung Galaxy S10e is a perfect example of this. Google also released a small-ish device with the Pixel 3, but it doesn’t have nearly as small bezels. XDA TV’s Daniel Marchena shared his thoughts on the small Galaxy S10e after using it for 3 weeks and compared it with the Pixel 3. Watch the video below!
