Galaxy S10 5G's size

The Galaxy S10 5G is 3.0 inches (77.1 mm) wide, 6.4 inches (162.6 mm) tall, and 0.3 inches (7.9 mm) thick. I can just barely use it with one hand, so it may feel big to some people. In the case of the Galaxy S10 5G, it weighs about 198 oz (198 g). It feels a little heavy when held with one hand. It may tire your hand out if you operate it for too long a time.
