The Samsung Galaxy S10 has arrived! To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the S-class, it comes in four variants: the usual pair of Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus, the 'lite' Galaxy S10e and the forward looking Galaxy S10 5G. From the looks of it, there's something for all types of users in Samsung's premium segment. In this week's poll we ask, which Galaxy is right for you?

If you missed Samsung's Unpacked event or just want to get a recap of the capabilities, we've already had our hands on the different variants and gotten a feel for each. Here's the skinny:

Samsung Galaxy S10e: the 'essential' Galaxy S10, it's the cheapest of the family, starting at $750 for the base model with 6GB/128GB memory. A few corners are cut: it has a flat AMOLED at just under 6 inches (which could well be a bonus for some) and makes do with the smallest battery and dual rear camera. Still worth considering for those who don't need to pay for every premium feature of a Galaxy S, or who thinks phones have gotten too big lately.

Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus: the gold standard of Samsung flagships starts at  $899.99 and gets the latest internal hardware (of course), a triple camera on the back, an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor and a 6.1", 19:9 display that uses the Infinity-O style hole punch instead of a notch to hide the camera. The Plus version is as you'd expect, a little more in every respect: a bigger screen, bigger battery, an extra selfie cam...and a bigger price tag, of course, starting from $999.99.

Samsung Galaxy S10 5G: not yet available, but worth waiting for for some. This phone is for those who want to make the most of 5G connectivity to quickly download and stream videos or games...and there's a huge 6.7 inch screen to enjoy them with. There's also 6 (!) cameras on board and a massive 4,500 mAh battery. We don't know much about the price, but expect it to be well over $1,000. As for 5G connectivity, Verizon CEO Hans Westberg confirmed during the unpacked that the carrier's customers should be the first to benefit from it.

And then of course, there's the innovative (some would say gimmicky) Samsung Galaxy Fold. While not really part of the S10 family, is anyone already prepared to ditch the S-class flagships in favor of the very first F?

Or perhaps none of the Samsung's new range has anything to offer you? Have your say below:

    It's easy for me. It has to be Galaxy S, it's Plus, and take a gift of wireless headphones. :-) I will never cheat.

    I am still waiting for Huawei P30 Pro and Oneplus 7. Would like to compare both to them with Sammy before taking the final decision. Also I don't want to cross the $1,000 mark, so waiting for price drop of Samsung Galaxy S10 plus. But yeah Sammy is kinda expensive, specially considering software support being offered is not as long as iPhones, which makes the overall value look bland. Only Oneplus offers three major software updates, and I think it would be the best choice. Cameras in case of Oneplus are not exactly as good as Samsung's, but then, they all seem to become obsolete in the long run. Just writing my mind 😊.

        Here's what I like about the s10plus.
        1. 8gb's of ram
        2. 128gb's of storage.
        3. A 4100mamp battery
        4. The 3.5 jack
        5. The best display in the business
        6. Micro s/d ip68
        7. Vastly improved one UI
        8. The cameras, steady mode
        9. The design and various colors, my favorite, white & green
        10. These are enough reasons for me to purchase!
