Samsung Note 10: Specs, release date, news, reviews

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10, Samsung could’ve maybe should have called this the note 10 E.

This phone is a sort of a trimmed-down version of the same way the S10 is, in a lot of ways but for a bit less money, so I think the best way to review this phone is basically to show exactly what’s different about this note 10 VS the note 10 Plus.

Samsung Note 10 review

So first of all it’s a hundred fifty bucks cheaper, the difference is that it’s physically smaller now, usually I’d always go for the biggest possible version of any phone but so many phones have all gotten so huge these days that it’s actually kind of refreshing having a smaller flagship phone,  so the note 10 is smaller than the iPhone 10’s Max and also smaller than the 1 plus 7 Pro which I’d been using before, I can reach all four corners fairly easily,  it’s actually really nice, not having to stretch to reach the top on these giant phones just to get to notifications, I don’t have any one-handed assist features turned on anymore on this phone. It’s kind of nice you know. it’s been a while since I’ve used a phone that’s actually this small which is plenty to say about a Galaxy Note.

specifications!

  • It’s a 6.3 inch display bezels still tiny you know still the boxy overall shape and another spec difference that a lot of people focus on is it’s now a 1080p display instead of the 1440p that the big brother ( Note 10 Plus ) had

  • I still do miss not having 90 Hertz or any sort of high refresh rate but aside from that this screen has been pretty excellent, I just think still because it’s 950 dollars phone, you just sort of want it to have everything you want to have, a 1440p display at this price, that’s one of the only ways, it really feels disappointing, everything else aesthetically is pretty much identical to the big brother just shrunken down which makes things more reachable, more pocketable and more holdable 
  • Now this spec is a perfect example of something that matters to many people a lot more on paper than in real life like if you haven’t seen the Galaxy Note 10, if you haven’t actually used this phone you might see on the spec sheet that it’s such an expensive phone but it only has a 1080p display and that sticks out like a sore thumb but in reality this display is pretty much great with that resolution, you’d be concerned about sharpness but it’s still pretty sharp at over 400 PPI.

  • So the cameras are exactly the same. This speakers are exactly the same, the fingerprint reader is the same and the buttons are the same but they’re even more reachable so they’re a little bit lower, I didn’t have a problem reaching them on the note 10 plus but if you did these are a little closer.
  • The software is also still the same but for some reason and they did this on the galaxy S10, also on the smaller phone, they don’t give you the option to change your screen resolution, on a phone with a 1440p display they let you pick if you want to jump down to 1080 or backup, on a phone with a 1080p display they hide it maybe it’s because they think it’s fine to just leave it at 1080 max res all the time, I don’t know but I would have at least liked to have seen the option here since this is the Galaxy Note.
