Samsung Mobile S Series List: Samsung Galaxy S Series 2010 to 2020

Dwelling in nostalgia? This Samsung Mobile S Series list will let you go back to those days when the phone launch events were exciting.

Samsung has been in the Android game for a decade now. It started with a slew of Android devices but wasn’t a popular name. Back in 2010, the South-Korean giant launched the Samsung Galaxy S, thereby introducing the S series which gives one of the best Android experiences in modern times. Since the first Galaxy S was launched, it was loved and criticized simultaneously. The build of Samsung’s phones were considered cheap and deemed “not premium enough.” Its software is a whole new topic.

Even though the build quality, the cameras, and the software have been overhauled, geeks like me want to live those days when phones were getting innovative, something that can’t be said for today’s models. I have prepared a Samsung S Series list that will inform you about all the devices Samsung potently placed in the S Series. Let’s see a decade-old transformation!
