I’ve been saying for years: The Galaxy Note line is getting so close to the Galaxy S line that it’s struggling to stand up. All of Samsung’s phones are great, so it’s hard to find unique things to maximize the Note.
Becoming a permanent leader in many fields and ultimately succeeding in yourself is a great problem. And serving a customer base of Der Hard Galaxy Note fans ready to buy anything with S Pen isn’t something that happens overnight. But continuing to serve them is a huge responsibility.
Beyond leaning on this pen, what can Samsung do with the Galaxy Note as its latest and greatest device to guide the world of smartphones?
Since spending time with the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+, I have been the victim of rumors on this question for over a week.

Galaxy Note 10 Basics
Samsung has adopted a very lucrative strategy of launching various Galaxy S devices in different sizes and has implemented it on the Note line. So now in addition to the Galaxy S10 +, S10 and S10e, we also have the Galaxy Note 10+ and Note 10. Like the Galaxy S series, the basics have something in common between the Note 10 and the 10+, but let’s break down the details.
Both phones are made of the same design, material, and proportions, but they are clearly different sizes. The Note 10 has a 6.3-inch display and the 10+ has a 6.8-inch display. Both are dynamic AMOLED panels of the same standard, but the Note 10 has a resolution of 2280×1080 while the 10+ has 3040×1440. Both run Snapdragon 855 processors (or globally Equinox 9825), but the Note 10 combines it with 8GB of RAM while the 10+ has 12GB.
The highly lucrative strategy of launching several Galaxy S devices has come to the fore.
You both get 256GB of base storage, but the Note 10+ has an option for 512GB. Both have the same S Pen and Styles features. They have only one camera, the rear camera of the 10+ extra depth sensor. The Note 10 charges a maximum of 25W wired and 12W wireless, but the 10+ collides with 45W wired and 15W wireless.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ specs.
got it? Good. Now I can get into everything shared between the phones, how they feel and what they bring to the table.
Galaxy Note 10 hardware, display, and design.
The Note 10 Series presents itself quite differently from the S10 and looks great when you select it. Like the previous notes, the 10 is even more gray, angular, and sharp. There’s plenty of metal around the top, bottom, and sides to give you a small amount of top-touch quality, but with curved sides and a sub-8mm thickness, it’s pretty much a glass experience. Samsung’s build quality is well-known at this point, and it’s still the best here. You have no question about whether this is a worthwhile phone – yes, even 50 950 to 00 1100.
The Note 10+ is a perfect combination of all of Samsung’s hardware capabilities.
With the separation of its Note line, Samsung had to perform two different tricks: to make the Note 10+ a basic size like the Note 9, but with a larger screen, while the Note 10 has a smaller body with the Note 9 screen size. Build with.
The Note 10+ is obviously huge, and many people will find its combination of size, weight, and shape invincible. As long as you accept the trade you are rewarded with a massive screen, but you have to be prepared for a phone that is sometimes difficult to use in one hand. The Note 10, by contrast, is retrieved: it’s actually smaller than the Galaxy S10 +, and if you can imagine it’s smaller than the Note 3 (released in 2013, you’ll remember). In addition to the size and quality of the screen in a more compact package to get a modern design and S Pen. And it could eventually open a note line for those who just turned down previous models for their size.
Samsung finally stopped compromising on power button placement for the sake of the Bucks by button.
At the bottom of the left side of the phone, under the volume rocker about the location of the power button in the middle, it feels amazingly weird, because I forced myself to realize that it was the boxy button and I Never wanted to touch it. But even after using the Note 10 and 10+ for a short time, I picked up my Galaxy S10 + and immediately lost the Note 10’s power button.
And to clarify the status of the button: a single press of the power button works as you would expect, with a double press to launch the camera, and a long press to launch the box. However, you can return this long press to the Power / Start menu, disabling Bucks in the process.
The new colors are great as a group, but my favorite “aura glue” is the one that takes your breath away. This Hyper Mirror Finish looks like a different color in every light and angle combination, changing everything from orange to blue to green to yellow and everything in between. In contrast, white, black, and blue models feel their bodies, but they have their own charm. White is simpler, black is a darker charcoal color, and blue is a bit darker than the colors available on the Note 9, all three are still quite shiny, but thankfully they’re not so crazy about getting wet and glue. As fingerprints.
Sadly, most Note 10s will find their way into something. But even when they do, you have to enjoy a beautiful new display. Having small bezels is a great image effect, and everything disappears when the screen is turned on. Samsung further consolidates its dominance in smartphone displays, and the latest panel is a treat.
It’s hard to find new ways to describe how good these screens look. Viewing angles, colors, brightness, and every other metric are just piles. Yes, the Note 10 is 1080p only, but I couldn’t tell the difference. Your eyes will be happy with both screens. Both also have a new central hole punch cutout for the front-facing camera, which is about one-fourth the size of the Galaxy S10 +. I still prefer the central location, and considering that the secondary “wide” camera on the S10 + was usually useless, I don’t mind losing it.
In my short time with the phones, I didn’t have time to set up and use these display ultrasonic fingerprint sensors, but the Samsung S10 is not claiming any improvement in the series. This is unfortunate because the S10’s sensor wasn’t very good at launch, and has since surpassed other screens like the OnePlus 7 Pro’s screen sensor. Although it will work, and – it is better to keep the phone in an awkward position on the side or back.
Say goodbye to the headphone jack and SD card slot.
Yes, Samsung has removed the headphone jack from the Note 10 series. I’m not at all surprised that Samsung decided to drop the headphone jack from the flagship phone. I was just surprised that he chose to do so with the Note instead of the Galaxy S release.
The kind of feature in the phone that Samsung knows to be missing is for its extremely loyal and devoted fans – those who, in many cases, are stuck with Samsung for just these two hardware features – only It doesn’t make sense to me. Especially in the case of a phone, the Note 10+, it is so massive and full of imagination according to every other feature and concept.
Samsung has removed the SD card slot from the smaller Note 10 and stuck it a little further in the dagger, which doesn’t even have the option of more than 256GB of storage. The lack of both a headphone jack and SD card slot on the phone won’t affect my thinking – I just won’t be fine using the Pixel 3XL – but I know it’s a Mac or break feature. a lot of people.
I can give credit to Samsung for at least one thing: it removed the headphone jack and made no agreement about it. The port is depleted, the box contains USB-C headphones, and not a word is said about it. No one dares to joke here.
Galaxy Note 10 software and features
The Note 10 introduces a UI 1.5, higher than the latest 1.1 in most Samsung phones, which doesn’t necessarily indicate changes to the actual user interface as much as it does just add a root of various features. ۔ The camera has small doodles for AR doodles, video stabilization and direct focus for video recording, as well as an improved video editor with more powerful tools for combining clips using precise control of the S Pen.
Not much has changed on the software front – it’s the typical modern Samsung.
Dex can now run USB directly on Windows or Mac computers, which makes it much more useful if you need regular access to your phone’s apps and data. Just plug your phone into the laptop, and you’ll get a window that runs the DAX environment the way it did before. You can also drag and drop (at least certain types of files) between the phone and the computer. There’s also a link to Windows for a middle ground view that doesn’t stretch the entire desktop interface – a utility that lets you mirror your messages, notifications, screens, and recent photos to your Windows computer.
It also brings a UI 1.5 screen recorder function, which Samsung Samsung is targeting serious gamers who want to record gameplay but work anywhere in the interface. You can turn on the image in the front-facing camera while recording, and at the same time create or illustrate on the screen with S-Pen.
A great charging upgrade.
The Note 10 makes great strides in all types of payments. The Note 10+ supports 15W wireless charging, while the Note 10 comes with S10 to 12W wireless. Both also support reverse wireless charging.
Samsung is finally charging at the same level as the competition.
Wired charging where things get very interesting: Both phones support 25W wired charging, which is twice as fast as the previous generation. And thankfully, Samsung is also adding a 25W charger to both phones. The Note 10+ goes a step further with 45W charging support, which ultimately puts Samsung on a competitive footing.
Bouncing a 45W charger in the box would be a good idea for this ہوتا 1100 phone, but we’ve been relying on it for years to get support for something other than Instant Charge 2.0. Samsung could not provide detailed charging numbers, but using a 45W charger you can expect up to 70% battery in 30 minutes.
This pen becomes stronger.
From the Note 9, Samsung’s Bluetooth-enabled S Pen was apparently popular, as it is now being taken advantage of. To perform the functions, just press the S-button at the top, now you can also hold the button and make gestures to do more. These “air actions” are usable in many apps, just like the basin base press – for example in the camera you can rotate between left / right modes, zoom in a circle and switch up / down. Can wave down Between the cameras
Samsung is once again offering developers an SD card to integrate Air Action into their apps, but I don’t expect many people to do that. For now Air, AirActs offers similar wireless features to other wireless features – they’re clean, and some people will use them here and there, but they don’t experience or break notes. ۔ The main function of this pen to be the exact input element is still the real draw. No one will notice the S-Pen’s gestures and there will be a final increase in why they use notes.
Outside of aerial operations, Samsung has reshaped the Air Command but has an interface with all the great apps as before. It also includes handwritten text for Microsoft Word, although it’s nice to see it for hard-working people out there. The S Pen’s design has become more ergonomic and balanced, and the buttons have been raised slightly to fit the normal space under your thumb. I found it natural and easy to take notes or control the interface, even with my big hands.
A familiar camera setup.
My main frustration with the Note 10 and 10+ is that they are not putting the envelopes up to the camera standard. (Yeah, it’s more important than the headphone jack.) The use of sensors, lenses, and software like the S10 isn’t disappointing (or surprising) in itself. But it will be a pleasure to see great progress in phones that are similar in every way to the Galaxy S10 series and are struggling to differentiate themselves. And considering how similar the S10’s cameras are to the Note 9 (and S9), there’s not even a commendable improvement from year to year outside of the new ultra-wide-angle option.
The Note 10’s camera will be as solid as the S10’s, and the Ultra Wide Shooter, in particular, is one of the best available. But the shot-to-shot image quality is already not as good as phones like the Google Pixel 3 and the Huawei P30 Pro, let alone the successors to those on the horizon. It would be great to see that the Samsung camera experience adds something to the camera experience by improving the “AR doodle” format, video bucky effects, and stability and audio while recording video. It’s not just for phones that are considered to be the absolute best in the market and showcase Samsung’s latest and greatest technology.
The Galaxy Note 10 is yet to come.
If you think, like I do, that the Galaxy S10 + is the best Android phone you can buy at the moment, then the Note 10+ is just one step closer to taking its place. Everything S10 + has to offer and mark it with a bigger display, bigger battery, faster charging, and some new capabilities.
The only area where the Note 10+ actually loses is in comparative value. That’s about $ 250 more than the S10 +, and while it’s better in many ways, it’s mostly modest. And in many areas, like the camera, it’s exactly the same. You’ll definitely get an S Pen, a slightly larger display, and more memory – but you’re also losing headphone jacks in the process. Is the extra cost equal to 250? If you’re a fan of D-Hard S Pen, or have a special passion for the latest and most needed, maybe. Otherwise, maybe not.
These are great phones, but I’m excited because the Galaxy S10 series is already great.
For me, the original stuff justifies the smaller Note 10, yes, it has the language of modern design with smaller bezels and a less intrusive selfie camera, and it has S Pen; In terms of size, the Galaxy landed between the S10 and S10 +, but it has a smaller battery than the battery. And in any case, it doesn’t have an SD card slot or headphone jack. The rest of the experience is similar to S10 or S10 +. The choice to buy the Note 10 depends even more on the need to have an S Pen – because if you’re skeptical of your styling needs, there’s no reason to buy it on the S10 +.
Before looking at the Note 10 and 10+, I was asking myself what Samsung can do to justify the existence of the Note 10 when the Galaxy S10 + is already so big. Given that there are still millions of Note fans who want just one note, the 10 and 10+ hype are brought to the table largely to justify it, and there are the required upgrades in line. But by sharing more and more with the S10 line, and not bringing anything new or exciting, especially to the world’s great smartphone scheme, the Note 10 and 10+ aren’t something new people join the ranks. Ice makes it happen. Better a poor horse than no horse at all. Samsung doesn’t mind the way the entire Galaxy lineup looks like a complete set.
The biggest and best.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10+
Samsung makes the best smartphone.
This is a phone powerhouse that will do whatever you want. Hardware, specs, displays, features, and cameras are all solid. And you get this pen. But you have to pay the price – so make sure you get just what you want (and as needed) before choosing it on the S10 +.
