Are the new Samsung Notes worth the hype?

Although we’ve not gotten our hands on the note 10 flagship devices just yet, however from what we’ve gathered so far, the notes 10 series are Samsung’s best phones of the year and both have remarkable features that would leave your jaw dangling from a mountain top to the ground. Yup! You read that right.

Both the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10 plus have similar designs in the sense that, both have a notchless dynamic amoled display, minimal bezels, a punch hole that houses the front camera, S-pen support, on display Fingerprint sensor, 2 stereo speakers, and no headphone jack.

They are powered by the same processor which is the Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 and run on the latest Android OS – Android 9.0 (Pie); One UI. They both also come in 4G LTE and 5G variants.

Another similarity is in the camera feature; the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10 plus both have a rear triple camera setup arranged in a vertical order which consists of a12MP sensor with optical image stabilization (OIS) and  dual aperture (f/1.5 and f/2.4), a telephoto camera with a 12MP sensor and OIS, and a 16MP 123° ultra wide-angle camera.

The front camera is not excluded, as they both have a 10MP front camera integrated in the punch hole at the top centre of the screen.

The difference between both phones however starts with the display i. e size and screen resolution. The note is smaller with its 6.3 inches display size when compared to the massive 6.8 inches of the note 10 plus.

Also, while Note 10 plus boasts of 12GB RAM, 256/512 GB in built storage (expandable up to 1tb with microSD card), Note 10 on the otherhand comes with 8GB RAM, 256GB storage which cannot be extended as the device has no memory card slot(👎Samsung)

Finally note 10 plus is powered by a 4300 mAh battery with fast charging support at 45W. Note 10 however supports fast charging at 25W with a lesser battery capacity at 3500 mAh which is quite disappointing for a note device.

Well now you have it, apart from the fact that Samsung got rid of the headphone jack, probably to make you buy the Samsung buds or something, the note 10 series are really killer devices with excellent features.

There’s no doubt that Samsung is trying to bring as much computing experience into the note 10 devices; the phones operate like mobile computers, from the storage, and ram to the S Pen which has unique features of its own.

If you were to ditch your current device for any of the  Note 10 devices, which would you go for?
