Default beer finished dryer than expected

predicted final gravity 1.015....I got 1.010. To be fair I am not 100% sure of my hydrometer but if it is correct is this a HUGE deal as far as taste?

not likely to make a big difference. not unless you are making hard cider.

I prefer my beer to finish drier. I think I have only had one finish above 1.010 this year.
