Samsung Galaxy S10e $779.35, S10 $876.85, S10+ $974.35, S10 5G $1,299.35 @ Samsung Education Store

2050

The discounts are back to 35% off RRP in the Samsung Education Store (it was 20% as of yesterday). Not the all time lowest prices - the Galaxy S10+ was effectively going for $850 through the Government EPP store - but quite good for Australian stock.

    just an FYI, that if you're purchasing handsets through the EPP, you are limited to 5 devices per calendar year (there's also other quotas like 10 wearables)

    If this a common price, Samsung will be selling much more.

    I went to JB yesterday, I was thinking to get the S10 for my wife and it was selling like $1349, I got Huawei P30 instead.

        I know the Snapdragon is the better processor but how much better is it over the Exynos? is the difference significant?

        • +3 votes

          not sure why you got the downvote. probally because you didnt do a google search.

          Anyway, heres a comparison between the Exynox 9820 and the Snapdragon 855 in terms of Gaming.

          https://www.xda-developers.com/samsung-galaxy-s10-exynos-982...

          From personal experience, if you're just after a phone to do typical day-to-day stuff, you probably wont notice the difference between the two SoCs as they both do it well. though if you want the s10 for gaming then the 855 is the way to go

        •  

          Every day you won't notice tbh. The one thing you will notice though is the battery life is noticeably better on the Snapdragon varient.

    I can't bloody decide on a phone, or if I need a headphone jack.

    At this rate, I'll never get something. Note 10+ is winning, but I could get two S10e for that price. But then I might want 5G because my area is in coverage. Too many goddamn choices.

      Why don't you do Amazon Cashback or shopback with Note 10+ via 28degrees credit card? Claim money back through out the years till it is at 1k or less…

        Ultimately, I'm waiting to see what the Pixel 4 is like, I'm not overly concerned about price, as I intend on keeping the phone for 3-4 years.

        But can you really keep claiming price protection as the phone decreases in value?

        •  

          Yes, 28 degrees stated in its TOS. You can claim up to $1,000 against 1 item within 1 year and the max $5,000 on price protection (multiple products) in 1 year.

        • +1 vote

          yes, up to a year.

          But if you were going to go that route, should have preordered it and got the free AKG headphones. Then immediately claimed a price protection for EPP 20% off price (which doesn't include the AKGs).

          It should be at clearance price just before the Note 11 is about to be released, so you in the end pay clearance price and get the free preorder bonus, and got to use it for a whole year during which it was the latest model.

          •  

            @lostn: The more you know :(

            Still, waiting for Pixel and don't really care about the headphones - I have too many as it is :D

          •  

            @lostn: Would 28 degree not say its not the same deal as you not getting free headphones?

          •  

            @lostn: Can you claim price protection against a special price in a site like EPP? Have you succesfully done that provided you have access to EPP?

          • +1 vote

            @lostn: Are you positive price protection includes EPP? Going from their website:

            Price Protection does not cover a lower price: due to corporate discounts, non-public or club membership discounts, or group offers.

            Does EPP not fall under that category?

          •  

            @lostn:

            The item with the lower price must be exactly the same as the item you bought, including size, colour, quality and condition, make and model number, attachments and accessories and the lower price must occur after the start of your Shopper's Protection policy.

            The free headphones would disqualify you from getting Price Protection from reading that. I'd argue they count the bonus as an accessorie so you'd never be able to claim PP unless someone bundled them again in the future.

      5g isn't ready in both the network and the device itself. First of all 5G coverage is still not widely available. Even if you are within 5G network coverage, S10 still suffers with overheating and battery drain when you switch to 5G network.(Source: MKBHD video '5g: Explained!')

      I'm waiting if they release a mini Pixel 4.

    Iโ€™m tempted by this and the Note 10+ but going to hang out until S11 where hopefully Samsung innovate a bit more than they did between the S10

      The Note10 and (presumably) the Galaxy S11 missing the headphone jack removes Samsung's last big advantage over the competition, personally.

        I could never understand why people are against phones that have a headphone jack. Ok great you were never going to use. So dont. Its for people that do use it. You have bluetooth on phones that have a headphone jack.

        Its not like if a phone has a headphone jack it doesnt have bluetooth. Its the same with infrared blaster. Its such a useful feature. Nothing against you if you dont use it but why take it away from people who have a use for it?

        • +1 vote

          They do take up a small amount of space, and cost a little bit (cents). The headphone jack is a source of failure due to the size of the socket and the torque you can get on it.

          I am still in favour of having them though, and I don't think the negatives outweigh the positives yet.

          • +2 votes

            @macrocephalic: Every component is a source of failure, including the power button.

            No one I know has ever broken their headphone jack by using it.

            •  

              @lostn: Thats actually along the lines of what I was thinking. Plus one can buy simple little plugs to stop any damage if not being used, if that is of concern (say water damage).

              I actually found at home a bagged up little speaker that would plug into the headphone jack, about 5 x 5cm. Was wondering if anyone would want it … going to Vinnies.

        • +1 vote

          It's actually not the headphone jack that's the issue. It's the other bits that cost money. A DAC (digital to analog converter) chip is required. Sure, the cheap one is dirt cheap, but good ones aren't that cheap. You also need to design the circuit to reduce noise.

          Most people don't really value headphone jack that much because low end phones have them. We also don't do any SNR test and most of us don't really have expensive headphones. Music / sound quality is not something you can easily show off when you have a new toy (mobile phone). Try telling you mates that you just purchased the latest Samsung S10 as it is now the last flagship with headphone jack (and ask your mates to listen to the music/sound through the headphone jack), they might think you've gone a bit wonko.

          Headphone jack can really useful, but it is no longer cool. Same goes with the display notch / hole.

            It's actually not the headphone jack that's the issue. It's the other bits that cost money. A DAC (digital to analog converter) chip is required.

            And what happens when they use a $2 USB-3.5mm adapter to use their existing headphones? No DAC is needed? Or is the DAC built into the $2 adapter? Wait, if a DAC can be included in a $2 piece of plastic, how much money did they actually save in removing it from the phone?

            Don't they still need a DAC to drive the speakers?

            A DAC can't cost that much money if every phone pre iPhone X had to pay for it and didn't break the bank in doing so. It's especially difficult to justify the penny pinching when they are charging 1.5k-2k for a phone these days.

            Most people don't really value headphone jack that much because low end phones have them.

            So it's a form of artificial snobbery? We remove features that low end phones have (and call them 'uncool') to make our high end phone look more desirable somehow? I don't want things that lower priced products have, because that's for the unwashed masses. I'm a rich guy, I'm too cool for things that commoners use. But if you go down that path, low cost phones also have screens.. and batteries and every other chip your phone has.

            Headphone jack can really useful, but it is no longer cool.

            The uncoolness was decided artificially by the manufacturer. And the sheep bought into it.

            The real reason Apple removed it was to sell you $200+ Air pods (they already admitted it was one of the reasons when the phone was being presented). Samsung at the time did not have buds of their own to sell. They continued including the headphone jack. Now they have some Galaxy Buds that cost $250 RRP. Coincidentally, now they've decided it's time to ditch the jack. Hmmm. I wonder if the two things are connected. Nope, just a coincidence. Who else doesn't include headphone jacks anymore? Google. Huawei. Wait, what a surprise. They too have expensive wireless buds to sell you.

            •  

              @lostn: Personally I couldn't care less about the removal. I used to use high end wired IEMs but the in built DACs and amps were never enough to drive them to a decent level anyway. Carrying around a USB powered DAC got tiresome.

              Wireless IEMs such as the Sony WF1000XM3 are now at such a decent level that I'm more than happy with the performance, and love the wireless freedom.

              • +2 votes

                @atlas: No one is forcing you to use the jack. The question is, does its existence cause any harm to someone who doesn't care for it? There are a bunch of features I don't use or care about on a phone but I don't wish for their removal when other people can make use of them.

                netsurfer claims that it's a cost cutting measure. Maybe it is, but those savings won't be passed on to you. It's the manufacturer who benefits most from it.

                If removing the jack means they don't have to pay for a DAC, then you need to pay for the DAC in every bluetooth headphones you buy. The cost is just being transferred from them to you. Multiple times possibly. You aren't saving any money. Phones do not get cheaper after the jack's removal. If anything phone prices have gone up.

                Wireless IEMs such as the Sony WF1000XM3 are now at such a decent level that I'm more than happy with the performance, and love the wireless freedom.

                They are at a decent level but they cost hundreds of dollars. I don't want to pay that kind of money when $3 Piston earbuds will suffice for my needs. But Sony's wireless WI-1000X earbuds cost $300 and their WF-1000XM3 cost $500 RRP. When I don't require that kind of sophistication, I like being able to use $3 earbuds that don't stress me out when I lose them or they need replacing.

                The thing is, you're looking at it from a very self centered point of view. You are happy to spend hundreds on the WF-1000XM3 so you don't care that the jack is removed. I don't want to spend that kind of money just to hear audio from my phone. I want to be able to continue using my cheap wired in ear buds so I want to keep the jack. Keeping the jack does not preclude you from enjoying your XM3s, but removing it does preclude me from using my $3 pistons unless I carry around an easy to lose dongle everywhere I go. Wired earphones are harder to lose because they are connected to your phone physically. They won't just fall out without you noticing it.

              A cheap DAC is used. That's my point. Even you would use it as an argument - it's just $2. That's how much you value audio, isn't it? What kind of DAC should be used for a flagship phone? An el cheapo DAC? Are you the type of person who gets really fussy with the audio chip used on your desktop motherboard, laptop?

              Look at Creative. How many people get SoundBlaster based cards now? How about CDs? Do you still buy them? How about iPods? You still use one? The reality is that we are spoiled. True, listening to music is still something we do, but we also use our phones for so much more, music just a small part.

              To you, it is basically $2. If so, then it should be no big deal to you losing it.

              The plug takes up space (inside the phone), the DAC, no matter how small still needs to be included in the circuit board. It is easy to avoid noise using an external cable than on a board with other chips (computer motherboards use better components now for audio - despite some still use cheaper DAC). Onboard audio used to be really bad. Furthermore, Samsung needs to include a decent pair of handsfree kit with their flagship phones (not some el cheapo pair for cheap earphones). The problem is that most people don't perceive them as good value anymore due to smart marketing from Apple. Look at the OZB response for deals on AirPods. With that kind of response, you expect Samsung to keep the headphone jack? Let's be realistic, wired headphones, handsfree kits can break easily, especially the connector, even branded ones. Also, the port on the phone can get dirty if you don't use it often.

              It is sad to see Samsung let it go. However, the writing is on the wall. When the punch hole appeared on S10, we know that Samsung started compromising.

      Historically, the odd numbered releases are just minor interations of the even numbered release before it. The exception being S3.

      I don't expect S11 to do anything innovative. What innovative things did the S9, S7 and S5 do?

        S5 was first that was waterproof. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’ง

        •  

          Well if you consider those things innovations, then the S11 will be an innovative phone. As will every other phone that will ever release compared to the model it replaced.

          I have higher standards for the word myself, but to each their own. To me an innovation is when you do something new. A camera that takes better photos is as innovative as a CPU that is faster or a screen that has more pixels than the one before it. It does something that was already being done but does it better. It's still doing the same thing and not a new thing.
