While the Galaxy Note 10+ is all that great, some consumers just prefer working with a phone that’s slightly more compact, and that’s where the Note 10 comes in. It’s the ideal device for those who want most of the goodies offered by the bigger Note 10+, in a smaller form factor and more affordable pricing.
Like its bigger brother, Galaxy Note 10 features a seamless and more symmetrical design. It also has a punch-hole front camera, along with curved glass on the sides. Build-wise, they’re pretty much the same – Premium, Elegant, Excellent.
Galaxy Note 10 has a smaller 6.3-inch Dynamic AMOLED Infinity-O display with a resolution of 2280 x 1080 pixels. Under the hood is the Exynos 9825, backed by 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, and yes, still no headphone jack. What it does have is an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor.
This one retains a triple-cam setup – 16MP ultra wide, 12MP wide-angle with dual aperture, and a 12MP telephoto shooter. As with the Note 10+, you get Live Focus, Super Steady to significantly reduce shakes in your videos, and Zoom-in Mic, which lets you amplify audio of the subject in-frame, while drowning out background noise. You’ll also be able take great low-light selfies with Night Mode for the front camera.
Of course, what’s a Note device without the S-Pen? Now, this re-imagined tool can deliver up to 10 hours of standby time. With Air actions, you can perform select tasks when using certain apps like Camera, and with Samsung Notes, you can transform the notes you’ve written into digital text, and export it into various file formats.
Love to game? the Galaxy Note 10 has an AI-powered game booster to improve performance, and now, with PlayGalaxy Link, you’ll be able to stream PC games onto the phone with minimal latency.
Need to work with files on your phone and PC? use DeX to drag and drop files seamlessly and work with your phone and PC’s apps side by side. With one click, you can also connect the Note 10 to a Windows PC, and be able to see your notifications, send messages, and check out recent photos, all without having to glance at your phone.
