The phone has GPS, a dual-SIM card slot, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac/6, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, MST, USB 3.1 Type-C port, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. It is powered by a 4100mAh battery which supports Adaptive Fast Charge, Quick Charge 2.0, fast Qi wireless charging, and reverse wireless charging. Additional features include Bixby AI voice assistant, a heart rate monitor, Samsung DeX, and Samsung Pay.
Pros: The Galaxy S10 Plus has an excellent design, an almost perfect screen, stereo speakers, storage expansion, and a dedicated 3.5mm headphone jack. The smartphone also features one of the best cameras of 2019, offering HDR10+ video recording. Samsung has nailed the software design, offering extensive customizability and ease of use. The phone is fast and so is its ultrasonic fingerprint reader. Other nifty features such as Wi-Fi 6, Samsung DeX, Samsung Pay, Secure Folder, heart rate monitor, and wireless as well as reverse wireless charging make this phone a must buy.
Cons: Samsung's low-light imaging chops aren't the best in the market anymore. Also, the 4100mAh battery doesn't last as much as one expects from such a high-capacity battery. Moreover, Samsung needs to understand that 15W fast charging doesn't cut it anymore.

Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus expert Review
Summary: The Galaxy S10+'s Dynamic AMOLED screen is second to none and the company offers various features such as HDR10+ playback, stereo speakers, and a dedicated 3.5mm headphone jack to make it a multimedia champion. The phone's rear-facing camera is excellent, except its low-light imaging, which is above average in comparison. The phone's performance is generally fast, but the Exynos 9820 throttles under continuous stress. One UI is the best custom Android UI and it offers extensive software features and UI customizability, without overwhelming the user. The phone's charging speed is too slow as per 2019 standards. Still, all things considered, the Galaxy S10 Plus is definitely one of the best smartphones of 2019.READ SAMSUNG GALAXY S10 PLUS REVIEW

This new fingerprint reading technology uses ultrasonic sound waves instead of capacitive or optical sensors, which makes it more reliable even when there’s water or dust on the finger or the screen. Qualcomm and Samsung claim that the 3D Sonic fingerprint reader is more accurate compared to other fingerprint reading technologies.

The Galaxy S10 has a 10MP+8MP dual-camera setup at the front to capture selfies.

Galaxy S10 Plus vs. Galaxy S9 Plus: Is It Worth The Upgrade?
The Galaxy S10+ is a huge upgrade over the Galaxy S9+ (Review), and it’s worth the upgrade if you have the money to splurge. The Galaxy S10 Plus has a larger and better screen, a faster processor, a better looking design, a faster and more ergonomic fingerprint reader, and a much longer-lasting battery. The ultra-wide angle camera adds a new perspective to memories and HDR10+ video recording makes you future proof. The only thing in the Galaxy S10 Plus that isn’t a huge upgrade over the Galaxy S9 Plus is its camera quality, especially still images.
