Smartphones are finally getting weird again, and Samsung is right in the middle of all the commotion.
The phone market is slowly spouting a new luxury category, and Samsung's new Galaxy S10 phones teeter right on its edge, with prices starting at $750 for the basics and ending at $1,600 for a decked-out 1-terabyte spec.
If you hate it, you can try using a background with a darker top or turn the entire notification bar black to cover it up.
Spec geeks will also like that you get 6 to 8 GB of RAM, 128 GB of internal storage, a MicroSD slot, and Qualcomm’s latest and greatest Snapdragon 855 chipset in every model.
There’s a learning curve, and you’ll need to make sure you follow directions precisely when you initially scan your thumbs during setup.
You may notice a second key that looks like a power button right under the volume toggle.
