Galaxy Note 10+ review

by birtanpublished on September 26, 2020

I'm just gonna say it right off the bat the Galaxy Note 10.1 a bit of a downgrade it's also the most expensive Galaxy Note to date at least aside from its 5g counterpart so who exactly is the note 10 plus for the galaxy note template appraisingly great hardware the

Aura glow finish is incredibly eye-catching and looks different from every angle even if it's one of the biggest fingerprint magnets I've ever seen you get a triple camera array for the first time on a galaxy note the same

One found on the s10 series and a Snapdragon 855 with 12 gigabytes of RAM and up to half a terabyte in expandable storage now yeah the rumors are true Samsung finally removed the headphone jack and some will be more upset about

This than others but at the very least you get some pretty great sounding USB C headphones in the box which is better than nothing one omission you probably won't mourn is that of the bixby button I much prefer the new single side key

Which can be programmed to launch bixby voice or the power menu and it sits lower on the phone so it's easier to reach so let's talk about that enormous 6.8 inch display for a second it's a quad HD dynamic AMOLED panel and in

Typical Samsung fashion it looks incredible with rich colors and great viewing angles and it ships with natural mode enabled by default which I'm a big fan of my only real gripe with the display is that it's set at 60 Hertz

When companies like oneplus are putting 90 Hertz displays on phones that cost just over half as much still the curved edges and razor thin bezels make the huge display surprisingly easy to manage of course the big thing that makes the

Note 10 plus a note at all is the s-pen which has been updated this year with a few new features like handwriting transcription which works shockingly well even with my terrible handwriting you also get new air gestures that take

Advantage of this generations gyroscope and Excel to let you swipe through photos in your gallery or change shooting modes in the camera without having to touch the screen but I didn't really find these

Gestures very useful my favorite uses for the s-pen are still the remote shutter and just the added precision over using your finger especially for creative apps like Adobe Lightroom the Galaxy Note Templar also

Received the same ultrasonic in display fingerprint sensor found on the s10 and while it isn't terrible I certainly wouldn't consider this an upgrade coming from the note 9s capacitive sensor which was quite a bit faster and seemingly

More reliable now if you liked the software on the note 9 and the s10 plus you'll feel right at home here the Galaxy Note templates with Samsung's new 1 UI version 1.5 and while there are a number of under the hood improvements

Like Dex 2.0 the experience as a whole is largely unchanged there's still a ton of options and customizable settings buried in long and often repetitive menus performance is lightning fast as it should be on a phone with such

Powerful hardware I'm just hoping it doesn't take too long to get updated to Android 10 as far as the cameras go the experience here is basically the same as on the galaxy s 10 plus are you noticing a trend here photos are incredibly

Consistent dynamic range is fantastic and you can switch from ultra wide to telephoto with just a few quick taps the note 10 plus by all means has great cameras they're just not the best cameras anymore

This is especially clear in low-light where detail starts to fall off and colors sort of blend together it just doesn't hold a candle to what phones like the pixel 3 and Huawei P 30 pro are doing in this regard and night mode is

Basically just a long exposure mode so expect to capture a lot of blurry handheld photos Samsung made a pretty big deal this year out of its new and improved video stabilization this is obviously the front-facing camera and

I'm shooting with my arm fully extended it's a little tight and unlike when you're shooting photos you can't switch to a wide-angle mode for video so that's something to keep in mind if you plan on shooting a lot of

Oh 10 here's the primary sensor on the back of the phone it's a very windy day in Brooklyn and I'm shooting at 1080p because super steady mode actually disables 4k I don't really mind that though since the stabilization seems to

Work out pretty well switching back to 4k though another new feature of the note 10 is the ability to focus the microphones in a particular direction as you zoom in sort of like what LG and HTC have done in the past

Now unfortunately all I have in front of me is nirav so that's what we're gonna have to deal with here you also get some new live focus effects that take advantage of the depth sensor on the note 10 plus and they mostly seem to

Work pretty well this is probably the best take on portrait video that I've seen there's a new video editor built into Samsung's gallery app which lets you edit multiple clips together in a timeline add background music and titles

And even export in the HEV C codec it isn't as full featured as Adobe Rush but it's dead simple to use and doesn't require a subscription service which is nice something else I really like is the note 10 plusses new 25 watt charger that

Comes in the box which will top up the phone in just over an hour you can also grab a 45 watt charger for even faster top ups and even wireless charging got bumped up to 15 watts the even better news is that you probably won't need to

Charge the note 10 plus very often while it certainly won't be a 2-day phone for the kind of power users it's intended for I've rarely ended the day with less than 20% remaining battery life doesn't need to be a concern here at all the

Only thing you should be concerned about is the price at $1,100 the Galaxy Note template is one of the most expensive phones on the market and while it's a great phone there's not much to draw in existing note users of the last year or

Two aside from the newer design and faster charging if you're just in it for the s-pen and don't necessarily need a huge screen you might even be better off with the smaller Note 10 which will run you $150 less that being said the note

10 plus is without a doubt the best phone in Samsung's current lineup you'll just need to really like the s-pen to justify its price over the s10 plus if you enjoyed this video and want to know more about the Galaxy Note
