Samsung Galaxy Note 10 vs. Note 10 Plus

  • Published on Aug 31, 2019
  • For the first time since launching the Galaxy Note, Samsung has made two sizes of its flagship big-phone. The Note 10+ is a powerhouse, but frankly, I find the smaller Note 10 more intriguing. It has a slightly smaller screen than the Note 9, squeezed into a body that's about the same size as the S10. Yes, it does have a 6.3-inch screen. But it's shoved inside a handset that's ever so slightly larger than an iPhone XS, which has only a 5.8-inch display. This offers a way for people to get the series' hallmark S Pen in something a little less cumbersome than the typically oversized Note.

    This is a great review. I still have my Note 8,I would love to get a 10+,but I like having the option of a headphone jack. I really with Apple and Samsung wouldn't have taken them away.

    I have hearing loss so full volume on bluetooth isnt enough some times. I used corded ear buds with added volume control but no head jack on the new phones hurt

    Heads up, I you are planning on buying either of these phones. They both come with a factory installed screen protection film. Plus the top and bottom ends of the phone have a protective film as well. The retailer that set my phone up removed all of the film. She thought it was just packaging or manufacturing film like you might find on a new kitchen appliance.

    That was a really good review! I'm gonna need a new phone very soon because my midranger is about to give up on me. My phone is where I store all my notes and appointments and organize everything, and I'm a sucker for the S Pen. I'm also a sucker for high resolution, but time and time again I've heard the difference between the two displays isn't that striking and the 10 Plus is too expensive and too big for me. I'm definitely gonna get the smaller one now!

    Note 10 and note 10+ are a galaxy joke, note 9 offers more, Samsung is known for faulty usb type c if it stops working you will take years to transfer your files to a pc, and $1350 for a phone? I can get a older phone a laptop a camera and some money left off to buy me lunch

    I don't see how the ridiculous rainbow smudge magnet back is a selling point. I would prefer a flat black color. Who's looks at the back of their phone for more than a minute after buying it anyway? Especially after you put a case on it.

    Giving the Note10 flak for the 1080p and not adequately criticising the 720p one in the iPhone 11 is peak mainstream media

    The note 10 doesnt have a 1080p screen lol, the new android update allows you to switch between resolutions and it comes stock at 180p. Please dont review phones if you dont know what your talking

    Does anyone know how to make the lock screen picture show longer before it goes black again (back to sleep, I guess)? I am using a picture from my gallery and I would like it to last a little longer. I am not talking about when my Note 10+ goes to sleep, but, rather, the lock screen wallpaper picture that comes back on when I press the left side button for the screen to come back on so I can unlock it. Thanks for any input you might give.

      What did you find were the biggest differences? Whenever I ask a Best Buy employee what they recommend, they always tell me they are the same phone but different size and battery essentially.

    1080p isn't acceptable? Most people have either a 1080p or 4k TV and a majority of the people buying the 4k tvs aren't taking advantage of it by also purchasing 4k dvd's, 4k players and so on... 1080p is just fine.

      @Joseph C
      Well I have the note 10 and it's amazing device I financed it with $503 down including insurance and a case my friend has the note 10+ and she loves it so depending on size you like 6.3" note 10 or 6.8" note 10+ and price of course note 10 is $959 note 10+ at $1,100

      Well Joseph my carrier Tmoblie is decent pricing. Just depends on what your looking for. I had a j7 star its was $180 I just wanted a upgrade phone. I still have the j7 star as a back up if you wanted it I could send it too you just need to get it activated and a Sim card

    Nothing really innovative,just another shiny peace of glass for around 1350€
    What can I say,
    Note 9-8GB RAM/512
    If you want THE BEST for your money,go with Note 9 ❗
    If the money are not an issue and you want to be cool,go with the Note 10+
    Ofcourse it's only my personal opinion.

      The higher res screen only mattered with VR. The Note 10s aren't compatible with Gear VR anyway. The naked eye can't tell the difference.

    She is basically convincing you to buy the Note 10, because you can't afford the Note 10 plus.
    But dont listen. Buy the Note 10 plus, Aura Glow, it's just a beautiful handset. It's feels like you are holding something crafted by Gods.

    I went from the s8 to the note 10 because I wanted the note features for work. Its marginally larger than the s8, but the screen is substantially larger. Plus all the note features and s pen. It's a win for me.

    • MemoryOf TheFuture
      MemoryOf TheFuture 6 days ago

      Zawar Ale the Note10/10 Plus has...
      • faster cabled charging at 25W
      • faster wireless charging at 15W
      • reverse wireless charging
      • wide camera lens
      • access to Dex without a special adaptor
      The list goes on. I’ve been able to find the Galaxy Note10 6.3 under $700 and the Note10 Plus under $800 on ebay. For those kind of prices they are a great deal.
      Butt that is just my opinion.
