Samsung S10 Lite for £399 in UK

The Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite is not like the old “Lite” range from Samsung. This in fact is arguably the best version of the S10 in the UK. Featuring looks form the S20, and an upgraded Snapdragon 855, which outperforms the UK S10 in nearly every metric, you are getting a proper flagship phone with a 20% off discount code to make it £399, or even cheap if you trade in a phone!

You might of missed the Galaxy S10 Lite, but it actually only came out in February 2020. It is a new line of the S models deisgned with a mix of S10 and S20 deisgn cues. It looks elegant and subtle with a small hole punch front camera, and the back has a very S20 camera bump while its not made from glass like its big brothers. It is a large phone but the gestures of the latest One UI 2.1, as of the April 2020 Android OS update, do help out a lot. The new firmware has build number G770FXXU2BTD2 and it comes with the Android security patch dated April 1, 2020. This software update also brings along new features to the Galaxy S10 Lite, which include Single Take, Pro Video, Quick Share and Music Share.

It has a 6.7 AMOLED screen and is nearly as big as the Note 10+! Its a great big screen and is clear in sunlight. It also comes with a huge 4500mAh battery, and combined with the SD855 processor, 6GB of RAM and the 25w fast charger it has all the power and endurance you will need.

The camera is a slight downgrade form the full fat versions, but its more of a change than a true downgrade. No telephoto lens here, but you still get an Ultrawide offering 128 degrees and a 48MP pixel binning Main camera. The standard HDR is really impressive on the main camera. Colours and sharpness are great in bright or dark conditions. However you probably want to use the night mode on the ultrawide for dark images. There is a macro lens too which I wouldn’t really use but it works well. The front facing selfie camera is good. It’s a 32mp snapper which does well with edge detection. Video quality is good, and the Snapdragon 855 means you can add the Google Camera app for even better HDR+ results in theory.

The S10 Lite is not really a “Lite” as you can tell. It is a great phone designed to take people away from the cheaper Chinese models flagships. If you are unsure about or cant get hold of a Xiaomi or Oppo, then the UK warranty, high-street store availability and familiarity of the Samsung Galaxy S10 name will do you well at this price. At £399 the only mainstream rivals are the Google Pixel 3a (soon to be replaced by the 4a). The Pixels have a top end camera, but only 64gb of storage, no SD slot for expansion and a far slower Snapdragon processor. Even the Pixel 4a only has a 730 series Snapdragon.

Basically with this deal from Samsung direct you are getting the best of both world. A near top end phone, that looks good, performs superbly, backed up by latest Android updates and a UK warranty direct with one of the biggest manufacturers. For £399 or even less if you trade in your old phone, that is a great deal. If you want more information check out the link or the GSMArena video review.

Use code “Samsung20” for 20% off. This is one of the best deals this month for a quality phone that will last you a very long time.
