Everything is better with Galaxy, well that’s true with the all-new Galaxy Note 10 line-up. Today, Samsung has finally unveiled it’s most refined smartphones, and I’m already in love with them.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10.
The smaller of all phones in the Note line-up is the vanilla Note 10. In the first place, the phone costs roughly INR 67,400 and looks glorious. The 6.3-inch Immersive Dynamic AMOLED display is the new sweet spot for the Galaxy Note series. At first glance, the screen looks brilliant with a tiny punch hole in the middle. I swear you’ll forget your iPhone after using the Note 10, well that gorgeous is the FHD+ panel on this phone.
Yes, this not so cheap 2019 phablet from Samsung that the company had to put a lower screen resolution. Unquestionably, this is due to a smaller 3500mAh battery capacity on the phone. Samsung wants to cater to its user’s outstanding battery life, and lower screen resolution is the know-how. Anyways, ordinary human eyes won’t be able to realize the trade-off.
8GB RAM is the new normal on Galaxy Phones.
Insisting on the hardware, like the OnePlus phones, now the Galaxy phones come with 8GB of RAM at the base. That’s not all as the 256GB of storage is now the new normal on Galaxy phones.
There are these few differences between the two Notes.
Now, I can state one thing for sure, the Galaxy phones have surely matured, in 2019. Although this may be true, there’s no other variant of the Note 10. The 512GB variant is available solely for the Plus alternative. This vanilla version of the Samsung phablet also lacks the expandable storage, while the Note 10+ does have it. Besides, both the phones lack the 3.5mm headphone jack. Surprisingly, it is a massive step-down for Samsung.
Samsung Note 10+.
Second, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ is the phone for “the power users.” Assuredly, the phone packs in everything which endures in the vanilla Note 10 together with some addons. Important to realize, both the phones packs in either the SD855+ or the Exynos 9825 SoC. The Note 10+ with base 256GB of internal storage costs $1,099 (roughly Rs. 78,100). Besides, there is this 512GB variant with 12GB of RAM which will cost $1,199 (roughly Rs. 85,200).
The more influential Galaxy Note 10+ sports a 4,300mAh battery, and it will be available in four color options. Unlike the smaller variant which will get just Auro Glow, Aura White, and Aura Black colors, the Note 10+ will also get the Blue color option. Also, the Plus alternative comes with a more immersive 6.-inches 498ppi 3040×1440 pixels resolution AMOLED display. Both the phones support the Dynamic AMOLED panels with support for HDR10+ and dynamic tone mapping.
Wait! There’s also a 5G Note 10+.
There’s also a 5G variant of the phone, and it costs at 1,299.99 (roughly Rs. 92,300) for the 256GB storage version, and $1,399.99 (roughly Rs. 97,400) for the 512GB storage version. The most recent 5G offering from Samsung will start selling via Verizonin US from midnight on August 8. Consequently, the shippings will embark from August 23.
Speaking of the next big thing on the Galaxy Note phones are the cameras. The regular variant has three cameras on the rear, while the Pro version has got an extra Depth vision camera. The primary camera is s a wide-angle lens with a 12-megapixel sensor. Well, it has a variable aperture (f/1.4-f/2.4) and a 77-degree field-of-view as well as optical image stabilization. Second is the 12-megapixel f/2.1 telephoto lens with optical image stabilization (OIS) and a 45-degree field-of-view. The third is the ultra-wide lens with a 123-degree field-of-view paired with a 16-megapixel f/2.2 sensor. Optical image stabilization is missing on this sensor.
The “Depth Vision” camera on the Note 10+ is a VGA camera, and it lets you take 3D images. With this new camera, one can create 3D Emojis which can track the moments of other Live objects. Also, there’s this new AR Doodle feature which lets you draw on the screen while recording videos and taking photographs.
New Pro-Grade Video Editing Tools
Four live focus modes — Blur, Big Circle, Colour Point, and Glitch makes an appearance, as well. There Pro modes are now available in both the video and photo software. The all-new Pro-grade video tools on the Note 10 phones lets you zoom in the videos.
The new Zoom-in Mic allows you to tap any person in a recording and have their sound enhanced in the resulting video. Well, now one can focus on the sound of the leading musician in a video. Also, the Super steady mode makes a big difference while taking videos. In particular, a lot of gimmicks are happening in Note 10’s camera department. One thing for sure, the new Galaxy phones are ideal for those people who want to shoot and edit videos while traveling. That robust is the new video editor tool on the Galaxy Note 10 lineup.
Selfies are Amazing.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ pack a 10-megapixel f/2.2 selfie camera with autofocus and an 80-degree field-of-view. Well, that’s a lot like the one on the Galaxy S10, and that’s a big plus point.
The new S Pen features
How can we forget the S-pen on the Note lineup? Speaking of which, the Note 10 introduces the Air Actions with next level gestures. By pressing and holding the button on the S Pen and moving the stylus around, you can trigger certain actions within apps. For instance, moving the stylus clockwise/ anticlockwise lets you zoom in/out. Moreover, one can move the pen right/left to go on the next/previous mode.
One can customize the shortcuts on its own in the settings menu. On the positive side, the company opens the SDK to third-party developers. That’s a healthy sign as developers can include the S pen features to integrate functionality into their own apps.
The Unibody S Pen now lasts for 10 hours.
The S pen now has a unibody design and lasts for 10 hours. Worth noting, Youtube now supports Motion controls with Youtube premium that is free on the Note 10 users. Another key feature is the ability to select handwritten notes and convert them to text. One can export this text as a Microsoft Word document, PDF, plain text, or an image. Also, the phone allows you to change parts of the handwritten text to different colors or change the width of the pen stroke.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10 is DeX Ready.
While the Samsung DeX is not new to us, the new Samsung and Microsoft partnership is fresh. Now with a Type-C cable, the Note 10 series can connect to your Windows or a Mac machine and use the phone apps along with the computer’s native applications. Granted for the Windows users, the flexibility is more with the deeper level of integration. The Quick panel, for instance, will let you share messages, make phone calls, access notifications, and view your recent photos. Keep in mind, the calling feature will come as a software update in Q4 this year.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ other specifications
The new Samsung phablets lack a headphone jack. Surprisingly, there will be no Tyce-C cables in the box as the company will provide the Type-C headphones in the box.

Other than that there’s the Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity, NFC, GPS, Galileo Glonass, as well as BeiDou.
Charging and Gaming Modes
While the regular Samsung Galaxy Note 10 supports the 25W fast charging, the Note 10+ can charge up-to 45W with the new Fast SuperCharge technology. It’s worth noting, the in-box contents will include the 25W charger and not the 45W one.
The Phone with Pro-Gaming!

There’s also an “AI-based Game Booster” feature as well that claims to enhance the performance of compatible games. Besides, there’s your favorite discord to keep you connected online.
An ultrasonic in-display fingerprint scanner.

The new features on the Note 10 series include an ultrasonic in-display fingerprint scanner from the S10+. Also, the sensors like barometer, hall sensor, an RGB light sensor, and proximity sensor are available on the phone.
My Final thoughts.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ are the most productive Android phones in the market. Any day, I will skip the iPhones for the freshest Galaxy devices. The elegant design, the powerful cameras, and the intelligent S Pen are all you need in your phone.
