Galaxy Note 10+ Hands-on Review & Spec Sheet Overview «Android :: Gadget hacks



The hugely successful S10 series of flagships may be a tricky act to follow, but Samsung has proven it to be the case with the Galaxy Note 10. The latest phablet with the Note name is the first of its line with an even larger variant, and has a stunning design with impressive performance to boot.

Many of the rumors we encountered about the Note 10, while others such as a front-facing camera with dual lenses turned out to be untrue. That said, the Galaxy Note 10, regardless of the model, still has a truly impressive specification sheet that will surely surprise Galaxy fans nationwide.

-month overview

After using this phone as a daily driver for a month, my favorite feature is definitely the included 25 W charger. Coming from a Galaxy S10 +, I was used to relatively slow charging – but now 30 minutes is all I need to get started. And the battery life is impressive and goes easily one and a half days before it needs to be charged (and note, I only charge 80% to save the battery).

The other function that made it difficult for me to leave the phone is the display. For someone like me who likes watching Netflix while eating, a phone with such a beautiful, large screen was perfect. A complaint I have is that the curved edges make it smooth when it is propped on its side. But you can always solve that by adding a case with a standard such as the $ 18.99 ESR Metal Case from Amazon.

The performance was great. Unlike the Galaxy S10 + (at least initially), I got the feeling that the 12 GB RAM was working because I went back to apps that I opened hours ago without having to redraw, even when I had 10-15 apps open. I also liked the weight of the phone compared to the Galaxy S10 +, which seemed similar to the LG V30 (which I don't like) – but of course you may have other preferences.

The disadvantages of this phone are scarce, but the lack of a headphone jack still affects me, especially when Samsung doesn't include their $ 14.99 dongle in the box. And because of the way the & # 39; s drivers work on Samsung devices, I was unable to use USB Audio Pro Player (an app that I highly recommend to get the most out of headphone adapters and USB-C headphones). I also initially had some problems connecting third-party dongles (they felt loose in the USB-C port), but it seemed to resolve itself later.

The camera is better than the Galaxy S10 + but not noticeably better, which is a bit disappointing. Although the S Pen is a great addition, I just notice that I am not using it. Although Samsung continues to add to its functionality and even opened the SDK to external developers, besides forcing myself to record handwritten memos when the screen was off, it was just in the phone.

For extra storage, the Note 10+ supports microSD cards up to 2 TB. This is only available on the Note 10+ and its 5G variant.

This is UFS 3.0 storage, so read and write speeds are much faster thanks to higher bandwidth per lane. Samsung managed to give the Galaxy Note 10 and 10+ the highest read and write speed. So although it uses the same standard as the OnePlus 7 Pro, it has much higher speeds, which means that apps and games load faster.
