Samsung's Galaxy S10e is the cheapest in the company's brand new Galaxy S10 line. But just because it's more affordable doesn't mean it's not high-end. The device features a beautiful all-glass design and a vibrant hole-punch display, which you must protect at all costs. That's why it's imperative you buy a case to keep your Galaxy S10e safe from accidental drops.
