Samsung has been running two series of flagship devices in parallel for many years now. The Samsung Galaxy S series of smartphones are powerful and relatively compact, whereas the Galaxy Note series was initially targeted at buyers who want a multitasking device primarily for work. The S Pen was and continues to be the defining feature of the Galaxy Note line compared to the Galaxy S models. Samsung has recently launched the latest generation of Galaxy Note devices, called the Galaxy Note 10 and the Galaxy Note 10+. These devices pack a powerful processor, an Infinity-O display, and improved S Pen functionality. Is Samsung's biggest smartphone the best that there is? We put the Galaxy Note 10+ to the test to find out.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ has a new design and features a new Infinity-O display with a hole for a front-facing camera. The Galaxy Note 10+ has the camera hole right in the centre, at the top of the display and we got used to the hole in a matter of hours. The display sports QHD+ resolution and has good viewing angles. The Galaxy Note 10+ boasts of Dolby Audio support and the stereo speakers do help to improve the content viewing experience.
While we loved the design of the Galaxy Note 10+, we found it to be a little big for our liking. The S Pen stylus has been improved and Samsung has added more features for it. You will now be able to interact with supported apps using the S Pen.
Samsung has picked the Exynos 9825 SoC to power the Galaxy Note 10+ and has paired it with 12GB of RAM. Given the hardware that the Note 10+ packs we found that nothing could slow the device down. We could multitask easily and the processor could launch all apps very quickly.
The Galaxy Note 10+ runs OneUI on top of Android 9 Pie and was running the latest security patch. There are quite a few apps from Samsung, Google and Microsoft preinstalled. Samsung offers a quad-camera setup and offers good camera performance in different lighting conditions.
The Galaxy Note 10+ sports a 4300mAh battery and is capable of delivering over a day and a half of battery life. The bundled 25W charger is quick to charge the phone completely in a little over an hour.
