    Hi !

    I'm looking to replace my lg g5 for an s10. Im debating between s10 vs s10e. Since one of the main reason for the phone is travel photo what would be the best choice ?

    The s10e is 200$ less (in Canada) and I do like the flat screen and form factor.

    From my point of view the s10 have 2 advantages over the s10e:

    1) Biger battery (how much time more we get with it it's not clear)

    2) telephoto lens. How much better is that the digital zoom ? Does the telephoto lens is use to get better bokeh effect or better low light picture or it's rally only use for zooming ? If only zooming it will be better than the s10e only at 2x I guess.

    thanks !

    I cannot speak to the two Samsung phones specifically.

    As a general rule, optical zoom is always better than digital zoom. Digital zoom is nothing more than in-camera cropping.
    The optical zoom should get you better bokeh, but given the smallness of the phone's camera system, it will never be good bokeh.
    You might get marginally better low-light performance on the optical zoom, but it is really just for zooming.
