S10+ still worth buying?

Morning all,

I currently have a Galaxy A70 that seems to be slowing down quite a bit. It was never super fast to begin with. And the fingerprint scanner is terrible.

I'm considering a new phone and so far the logical choice seems to be the S10+. It still has decent specs, and the price is within my budget for a refurbished factory unlocked version. But I'd like to hear the opinions of actual owners. Do you guys feel that it would still be a good buy right now for around $300? Is day to day use still good?

If not, can you recommend any other phones that are better for around the same price?

Thanks in advance.

Yes, yes and yes. I bought one renewed from amazon and it was practically brand new. The S10+ is just as capable today as it was in mid 2019. I couldn't justify buying a S20 or S21. Even the S22 isn't looking like a worthy upgrade. I like my S10+ so much, I bought another one for a family member. It will get the Android 12 update and the cameras....oh boy. Amazing broski. I can't recommend it high enough. I paid $280 bucks and no one phone even comes close at that price range. There is also a ceramic version available if you want for $20 bucks more! Its a no-brainer. Just do it. Lord Willing, you'll thank me later!

On a quick note, I have an A70 as well. It is a huge upgrade, I can tell you that. The quality, is A+ on the S10+. However, the fingerprint reader is a little annoying. It isn't as fast other devices. Just a heads up. Its better than the A70, but it isn't perfect.

Thanks. I didn't see your response until now. But I ended up buying the S10+ and I'm very happy with it. It is so much faster than the A70. I sold the A70 too, so the S10+ only ended up costing me about $150. Definitely a great deal.
