Firstly, the processors are identical as all three the S10 devices use the Snapdragon 855 and they all feature at least 128gb internal storage with the option to add a microSD card, all of which can add 512gb. Secondly, the stereo-quality speakers are featured on all the devices and you get the headphone jack (3.5mm) on each as well.
