Samsung has officially launched the Samsung Galaxy M10 in Nepal. While the Galaxy M10 is an entry-level Android smartphone, the success of the phone is very important to the Korean company. After failing to dominate the Nepalese entry-level smartphone market for several years now, the M10 may be the only chance the brand has to crown itself and position itself above the competition. But can it? Well, let’s find out!
First things first, the price of Samsung Galaxy M10 in Nepal is Rs. 13,790. This price of the Galaxy M10 is for the 2GB RAM with 16GB of internal storage variant. And, it’s the only variant that will be available in Nepal (well, at least for now).
As you can expect, the Galaxy M10 is the company’s entry-level smartphone but for the price, you are getting quite a bit. In fact, it gets some of the features that are missing on much more expensive Samsung phones. For instance, it is the first Samsung phone to follow a new design language. It’s also the first phone to launch with Infinity-V display.
On the front, you get a 6.22-inch LCD Display with HD+ resolution. The phone has minimal bezels on the sides as well as on the top and the bottom. Thanks to this design, the phone isn’t all that big even though the screen is quite large.

The cameras on the Galaxy phones always have always been good. But does it hold true even for an entry-level phone? Yes, but there’s a catch. The day-light performance of the phone is solid but as with many other entry-level phones, the low-light performance isn’t all that great. However, it’s one of the better camera phones for the price.
As I really don’t want to be seen as a Samsung fanboy here, I will mention a few things that could have been better on this phone. One, the Galaxy M10 misses out on a fingerprint scanner. It’s 2019 and it’s strange to see Samsung opting out on this security feature. The other thing that isn’t all that great is the use of the Micro-USB port. It’s ender sibling, the M20 gets the new and up-to-date USB-C connector and for some reason, the M10 misses out on the feature. Also, it would have been great if the phone had a Full HD+ Display instead of HD+ display but then again, I think I am asking for a little too much here.
If you are looking to buy a new smartphone under Rs. 15,000, you should definitely check out the Samsung Galaxy M10. It is a really good phone which is worth recommending to those who are looking to buy their very first Android smartphone.
The Galaxy M10 may not be perfect, but for the asking price of just Rs. 13, 790, you really can’t go wrong with this phone. What’s your opinion about the Galaxy M10? Let us know in the comments section down below.
