We interrupt this web-browsing session to bring you an amazing opportunity to switch to one of the most sophisticated smartphones on the market for a steal. Right now, you can score the next-generation Samsung Galaxy S10+ on Amazon for just $700—that’s a savings of 30 percent, or $300 off retail.

Samsung has really upped the ante with the Galaxy S10+, incorporating a professional-grade camera, crystal-clear cinematic screen, mega-powerful processor, energy-saving battery, and lots more bells and whistles into an unbelievably slim package. And this next-level gadget comes unlocked, so you can pair it with almost any service provider, including Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint. 

Here’s the lowdown

Owning a Samsung Galaxy S10+ is like carrying a pocket-sized assistant everywhere you go. It runs on the intuitive Android 9.0 Pie operating system (upgradable to the latest Android 10 via over-the-air update), which picks up on the way you use your phone and adapts to your preferences. 

For instance, it understands which apps you barely use and won’t let them drain your battery. It can even predict when you want to connect to your headphones or listen to a particular playlist, then it helps you get there faster.

The Samsung Galaxy S10+ is also the only camera you’ll ever need with a 12-megapixel Super Speed Dual Pixel lens paired with a 16-megapixel Ultra Wide shooter. It captures the highest quality photos you can possibly achieve with a smartphone and displays them on an immersive Cinematic Infinity Display. Even selfies are portraits are enhanced with special built-in lenses.

It’s also convenient as all-get-out. For one, the battery lasts all day, which is pretty hard to come by in even the most modern smartphones. And if you’ve gone a little overboard with videos despite the device’s generous amount of on-board storage, its expandable memory function lets you offload all your files quickly to the cloud and make room for new memories of your own. 

Concerned about your security?

The Samsung Galaxy S10+ has you covered on that front too. Its Ultrasonic Fingerprint ID actually uses sound waves to detect fingerprints in three dimensions—so there will be no mistaking it’s you. And if you do run out of juice and are far from a power source, tap a friend instead. Wireless Powershare means you can place your Samsung phone on someone else’s to get an energy boost.

And here’s what Amazon shoppers had to say:

The Samsung Galaxy really is THIS good, as plenty of Amazon shoppers can attest. “I got 4 days of of one full charge,” one reported. “The features are impeccable. Great choice for an upgrade.”

Another wrote, “I have been using it for six months now and I'm loving it. It has the greatest battery life I've seen. 24+ battery life with 4-6 hours on screen time, I've even had days of 8 hours on screen time with my phone at about 30ish % by the end of the day. The cameras are among the best in the industry.”

“Upgrading after five years results in a whole new experience with all of the old complaints GONE,” another happy shopper reported. “Better camera, brighter more functional interface and features that will be discovered with time and use.”

One thing reviewers warn, though, is that the Samsung Galaxy S10+ is so sleek that it actually gets slippery in your hand. We suggest investing in a Spigen Tough Armor Designed for Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus Case, which is “slim and doesn't add much bulk to the phone...feels really sturdy and protects the phone perfectly,” according to one of hundreds of reviewers who have sung its praises. The case even comes with a built in kickstand so you can prop up your Galaxy and watch up to 22 hours of video playback.

Score this Samsung Galaxy S10+ deal, while supplies last. However, if you want something smaller, the Samsung Galaxy S10 with 6.1-inch “Infinity Display” is also on sale for $750, or $150 off its list price on Amazon.
