For the past five years, I've been aboard the iPhone train.I switched from Android to iPhone shortly after graduating from college, purchasing a gold iPhone 5S that served me well for about 2.5 years. I later upgraded to an iPhone 6S, and these days I'm using an iPhone X. Advertisement
Lately, however, I've been experiencing a bit of iPhone fatigue. Sure, there's still a lot to love about iPhones and Apple products as a whole. But sometime last year - perhaps around the time I had a rough experience with the Apple repair process - I started to feel like I was ready to at least look around for a device outside the Apple ecosystem.
But for the past few weeks, I've been trying out the Samsung Galaxy S10e, one of several new smartphones Samsung debuted in February. It's not Samsung's flagship device, but rather a smaller, more affordable alternative that loses some features - features that, honestly, aren't that big a deal.Since I started testing it, I've discovered that the Galaxy S10e is one of just a few Android devices that could convince me it's time to make the switch.
