Call me eccentric, but when Samsung announced the Instagram Mode on the all-new Galaxy S10 at Unpacked, it was the first time a technology press conference got me emotional. Part of being a social media entrepreneur is shedding light on how the internet works — and now, I’ve got the perfect lens.
From the better-than-ever camera to Wireless PowerShare to Ultrasonic Fingerprint ID, there are many reasons to love the all-new Galaxy S10. While you may already know the reasons I’m excited to upgrade, I also had the chance to talk with analysts and experts about their first reactions and favorite features while on the ground in San Francisco.
“This is the 10-year anniversary of the Galaxy brand, so you’re expecting a lot,” said Maribel Lopez, founder of Lopez Research. “And this was the conference of more: We have more devices, more choice, more networks, more wearables.”
Mike Feibus, president and principal analyst of Feibus Tech, agreed: “It sure was a lot to unpack.” (Pun intended.)
“Four new phones, a new category with the Galaxy Fold, Galaxy Watch and new fitness bands — like I said, a lot to unpack.”
And, according to B2B social media influencer Evan Kirstel, “The Galaxy S10 and S10+ are must-have devices. Any incremental innovation that makes my work life or my personal life better is a must-have for me. [Features] like the ultrasonic on-screen fingerprint reader, the advanced camera and video technology, [and] Wireless PowerShare are all things that I can put to use right away.”
And, with the addition of new features like Bixby Routines, I’m hoping my phone will learn that I like to snooze a bit longer on a Monday morning — and that I have favorite coffee places near different clients’ offices. I’m looking forward to my phone anticipating my needs before I do (especially when they revolve around caffeine).
Jay Samit, author of “Disrupt You!,” particularly loved “being able to charge ear buds and everything on the go … it’s one less hassle, one less cord.”
A device that makes your suitcase lighter? I’m all in.
