Every year for the past few years, Samsung’s smartphone release pattern has been pretty predictable. We get the new Samsung Galaxy S lineup in the first part of the year, and then around August/September, the latest Samsung Galaxy Note is released.

We don’t expect that to completely change anytime soon, but for 2020, Samsung shook things up a bit by unveiling the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite and Note 10 Lite just a few weeks before announcing the Samsung Galaxy S20 series.

Both phones strive to offer a premium Samsung Galaxy experience at affordable price points, making them compelling options for anyone that wants a reliable phone without spending a heap of cash.

Before you go any further, we recommend reading our full review of the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite.

The S10 Lite is a very good Android phone that brings a lot to the table, with some of its strong suits being the Snapdragon 855 processor, reliable cameras, and excellent battery life thanks to the 4,500 mAh battery packed inside.

Unfortunately, the phone struggles to stand out as something you should seriously consider buying thanks to a variety of shortcomings and its steep price. With just a 60Hz display, bland design, and no headphone jack, wireless charging, or water resistance, it becomes hard to justify the S10 Lite’s $650 asking price.
