Brains and Brawn: The Galaxy S10’s Performance-Focused Features
The Galaxy S10 line’s premium hardware is backed by machine learning-based software that makes it easy for users to get the most out of their phone.
Brand new power-sharing capabilities, AI-powered performance enhancement, and Intelligent Wi-Fi support make Samsung Electronics’ newest flagships its smartest devices yet. Let’s examine some of the ways these exciting innovations will change how users connect, charge and power through their day.
Sharing Is Caring
Samsung’s Galaxy S10 offerings are not only incredibly powerful in and of themselves. They also come packed with cutting-edge technologies that add a whole new dimension to powering other mobile devices.
The smartphones’ built-in charging pad and new Wireless PowerShare technology¹ allows users to use their phone to easily recharge compatible Qi-certified smartphones, and even wearables.² This means that if your Galaxy Buds or Galaxy Watch Active are running low on power, you can top off their charge with your Galaxy S10. There’s no need for additional plugs or cables when sharing battery power, which makes the function perfect for urgent situations when you just can’t find an outlet.
The Galaxy S10 also allows you to charge your phone and another compatible device simultaneously using a single wired charger. This is especially handy when traveling, as it allows users to leave more cords and chargers at home.
The smartphones’ support for Fast Wireless Charging 2.0 enables charging of up to 33 percent³ faster than the Galaxy S9 when using Samsung’s new Wireless Charger Duo Pad. The Galaxy S10’s support for this technology leads to less time on charging docks and more time in your hands.
Because each of us utilizes our smartphone differently, the Galaxy S10 features advanced, AI-powered software that optimizes performance based on users’ unique usage patterns.
The smartphones’ Intelligent Performance Enhancer automatically adjusts settings for the battery, CPU, RAM, and even the temperature of your device to ensure stable performance. So frequently used apps launch faster, games run smoother, and your phone works harder when you need it the most. And because the technology constantly learns and adjusts based on your personal habits, it becomes more tailored and useful the more you use your phone.
The devices also feature an Adaptive Power Saving mode, which optimizes battery performance based on app use. This innovative technology categorizes apps into five groups based on how often they’re used, and regulates power usage to help you get the most out of your phone’s battery.
Support for Smarter Wi-Fi
The Galaxy S10 also introduces a dynamic duo of technologies designed to bring an end to the days of spotty Wi-Fi connections.
Intelligent Wi-Fi allows the devices to seamlessly switch between Wi-Fi and LTE networks in order to foster safe and uninterrupted connections. It uses machine learning to recognize when you’re in an enclosed location where the Wi-Fi might be unreliable, such as an elevator, and it can tell when you’re on the move, like when you’re in a car or walking down the street. As soon as your Galaxy S10 registers changes like these, it will quickly and seamlessly switch to an LTE network connection, so you don’t miss a beat. In fact, it switches from Wi-Fi to data more than twice as fast as before.
The Power to Do More
We’ve only just scratched the surface of the Galaxy S10’s performance upgrades – and there’s plenty to be excited about.
In addition to allowing users to seamlessly switch between Wi-Fi and LTE connections, the Galaxy S10 offers some of the fastest LTE speeds available. The devices are also capable of supporting download speeds of up to 2.0Gbps – an improvement of 0.8Gbps when compared to the Galaxy S9 – which means users can stream and connect faster than ever before. Speaking of speed, the Galaxy S10 5G, Samsung’s first 5G smartphone, is primed to take connection speeds to bold new levels by opening the door for users to experience network speeds up to roughly 20 times faster than 4G.
The devices also feature a next-generation 7/8 nm application processor (AP) that significantly upgrades CPU and GPU performance – by 29 percent and 37 percent, respectively – when compared to the Galaxy S9. The Galaxy S10+ is also available with 12GB of RAM – a first for the Galaxy series – which enables users to experience powerful multitasking.
Finally, the Galaxy S10 line introduces the highest storage capacity ever available on a Galaxy device. The Galaxy S10+ is available with a whopping 1TB of built-in storage, and offers users the ability to add an additional 512GB of memory via microSD card, for a total of 1.5TB of storage space! That’s enough memory for approximately 768 movies, and enough space to put the days of deleting photos, videos and apps to make room for more behind you.
 If you charge two devices simultaneously, Fast Wireless Charging 2.0 for Galaxy S10e, S10, and S10+ may not be available. Wireless PowerShare limited to Samsung or other compatible smartphones with WPC Qi wireless charging, such as Galaxy S9, S9+, S8, S8+, S8 Active, S7, S7 edge, S7 Active, S6, S6 edge, S6 Active, S6 edge+, Note9, Note8, Note FE, Note5, and Samsung wearable devices including Galaxy Watch Active, Gear Sport, Gear S3, Galaxy Watch (46/42mm), and Galaxy Buds.
