This is official: the Samsung Galaxy S10 + 1TB is the most expensive smartphone ever designed for a mainstream audience.
With a suggested retail price of $ 2399, the Galaxy S10 + 1TB costs $ 900 more than the Galaxy S9 + at launch (but with twice as much storage). Even the iPhone XS, high-end, manages to surpass it. So, what do you get for your dollarydoos truck?
The Samsung Galaxy S10 + is the first smartphone to offer 1 TB of integrated storage. It's also one of the biggest phones of all time, with its 6.4-inch Quad HD + AMOLED display. (The iPhone XS Max is slightly larger at 6.5 ".)
Other noteworthy features include an ultrasonic fingerprint reader, three rear-facing cameras (12MP telephoto, 12MP wide-angle and 16MP ultra-wide), 8GB of RAM and a generous battery of 4 100 mAh. As mentioned, it also comes with 1 TB of storage, plus a microSD card slot for an additional 512 GB.

To be honest, it should be noted that Apple's iPhone XS Max is only $ 30 cheaper than the Samsung S10 1TB. It also comes with about half the capacity and has no options external storage. In any case, you can opt for one of the cheaper S10 models if $ 2399 is too high for you.
Personally, we think that most people will be interested in choosing a Samsung Galaxy S10 + 1 TB on a contract. Although it will cost more money in the long run, you will not pay the nose in one shot. (Plus, you're obviously going to need mobile data for this thing – so kill two birds with one stone, huh?)
You can see how the different plans of the telecom operators are compared by going to our S10 + plan portal, which should be operational around 9:00 AEDT.
