Samsung has just announced their Samsung Galaxy S10 lineup of devices, among of which, three devices have begun rolling out to international markets. As it rolls out towards international markets, it seems like a lucky few have been able to conduct battery tests of all three variants alongside each another. As it seems, the Samsung Galaxy S10 is dying out before the Galaxy S10E despite packing a larger battery.
According to a battery drain test best a Korean Youtuber, IT 인싸잇, the Samsung Galaxy S10 is the first device to die out. Being a set of devices most probably sourced from Asia, all three of the devices feature Samsung’s latest and greatest Exynos 9820 SoC rather than Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 SoC. Apart from the feature set, the test conducted seemed to be well-standardized with settings identical to each another, downright to the apps installed on them.
Based on the test, the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus lasted the longest by a huge margin, by 12 hours and 26 minutes thanks to its 4000mAh battery. Second place is snatched by the entry-level Galaxy S10E, lasting for 10 hours and 10 minutes with its 3100mAh battery. While the Galaxy S10, with its 3400mAh battery, lasted 9 hours and 55 minutes, just shy of the 10-hour mark.
As recorded above, it seems like the Samsung Galaxy S10 seemed to be draining its battery way faster than the other two devices for some odd reason.
While the results are great thanks to the 8nm refinements, it certainly shows some sort of loophole in the Galaxy S10 if the tests are indeed true. Reports in the past have showcased Qualcomm-powered Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus flagships to last longer than their Exynos counterparts. And with the introduction of the new 7nm process on Qualcomm’s part, it seems like the Qualcomm variant may very well take the cake again this year.
What the odd issue may be is yet to be seen. However, if these tests are accurate, it could be a good time for Samsung to take notice of the issue anytime now.
