There are three main improvements and then a lot of small ones but the main ones are the in display fingerprint sensor and the cameras so the new display it’s simple, it’s got a 6.1-inch display for the S10 at a 6.4-inch display in the S10 plus and they continue the tradition of Samsung having literally the best displays in any phone for a couple of years running now and it continues to get even better so you have a 90 plus percent screen to body ratio now and it’s still a super-high resolution with a 19 by 9 tall aspect ratio but it’s now also HDR 10 plus certified and they’ve changed the name a little bit they’re calling it a next-level infinity display but still it goes right up to the very edges.

Check for Water Damage at Screen:
Moisture is enemy for Circuits, if it remains for a long time it seriously damages small components also it dust can stick to moisture and even damage more.

Crack Screen or just dropping phone can easily stop the screen from working, it just go black. User can’t understand and think it is not turning on. Sometimes glass remains intact after drop, the damage would not be seen with the naked eye. Replace the screen with New One in case of any of the above reason
