The biggest problem of the Galaxy S10 is addressed in a day-one update on US carriers
by Adrian Diaconescu / Mar 08, 2019, 5:22 AM
T-Mobile, Verizon, and Sprint have all confirmed imminent rollouts for their respective variants of the S10, S10 Plus, and S10e, but we're guessing the same enhancements will be delivered to AT&T-specific and US unlocked models over-the-air soon enough. Interestingly, while T-Mobile and Sprint are listing March 8 as the OTA release date of these minor OS revisions, Verizon's support documents suggest the updates have been around since Tuesday, March 5, technically making them "day zero" or even "day -3" affairs.
The all-round vague changelogs also differ from carrier to carrier, as Sprint mentions "bug fixes and performance enhancements", Verizon claims to provide "camera enhancements and the most up to date Android security patches" on your brand-new devices, while T-Mobile lists "camera and fingerprint feature enhancements" and "security patches" as the focus of these updates.
It's safe to assume all wireless service providers are actually sending the same software enhancement packages to the Galaxy S10, S10+, and S10e, including February (not March) security patches and fingerprint recognition improvements. Intriguingly, even the Galaxy S10e is getting a little something to make its side-mounted biometric sensor better. As for the Galaxy S10+, while we didn't find the ultrasonic in-display fingerprint scanner to be completely useless in our in-depth review, it certainly looked like it needed work in terms of both speed and reliability.
Hopefully, this update will be enough to address our concerns, and if not, that others will follow before long. Finally, even though we didn't notice anything wrong with the cameras on the Galaxy S10+, there's always room for refinement in that department, and it's nice to see Samsung is wasting no time trying to achieve photographic perfection.

My problem with this whole thing is Samsung is doing what they are supposed too. Rolling out a fix for any bugs for release day. You tech sites want to get page clicks so bad you "review" a phone before release day and try call them out on outstanding issues. But I guess now you can write another article and get more clicks on how they "fixed" the fingerprint scanner. Of course your review was terrible to begin with so not sure it really matters anyway...

Even the youteuber "everything Apple pro" used the s10+ for 10 days and his words were battery even better than iPhone max WITH the smart battery cover on! And he was using the freaking exynos version!!!! Yet somehow PA found a way to make the iPhone look better

His channel only continues to run if he "uses" an Apple device. He has created a huge following and would lose everything he built if he stopped using Apple devices... So not sure what your point is. Did you really think he would switch for good?

That's only because He's "STUCK" inside Apple ecosystem, If only apple make homepod, apple watch, and mac devices work nicely with Android devices, He would actually switch to S10+. But at least he got COURAGE, to admit that S10+ is superior in many ways, He could even write 100 reasons why S10+ better. Edit: it's a reply to #8 btw.

“As for the Galaxy S10+, while we didn't find the ultrasonic in-display fingerprint scanner to be completely useless in our in-depth review, it certainly looked like it needed work in terms of both speed and reliability.” You isheep writers are just too much. When Apple implements the same fingerprint reader under the screen you will call it innovation and will praise Apple for it. It will be 2 years before we see Apple with anything close this but I can see you guys giving it a 10 rating on your review.

Man, are the fandrones STILL crying over 3 tenths of a point? You don't call the site "iphonearena" or biased when they give you bait articles about iPhone sales.

We're calling out BS because Apple gets 9.3s for incremental upgrades but any Android phone no matter how good it is gets no more than a 9

People on this site are such fanboys it is beyond ridiculous. I've read reviews of the S10 on multiple sites, and I've seen on more than 1 occasion people complain about the lack of responsiveness of the fingerprint scanner, it's not JUST Phonearena.
