Once you have selected your preferred screen resolution, tap on Apply to hit the final setup. From Here you can switch back and forth between HD+ (1480x720)/FHD+ (2220x1080) / WQHD+ (2960x1440).

Don't use a screen saver:

Galaxy S10 do have live wallpaper support and Always on Display stuff but it still has the screen feature right into the settings and if anyone of you using it you may wanna know that it'll take some part in your phones battery life.
