One of the most striking phones in the market right now, the Samsung Galaxy Note10 is more than just a pretty face. In an age where phones are just getting progressively bigger, Samsung has managed to deliver more phone in a smaller package.
An Android powerhouse for the ages
Powered by the Snapdragon 855 CPU by Qualcomm, the Note10 is one a small handful of phones with UFS 3.0 storage for near-instant read and write speeds like nothing before. 256GB storage comes standard, as does 8GB of RAM. In graphics benchmark tests, the Galaxy Note10 easily sets new records for Android devices and even outperforms its closest non-Android competitor. The 3,500 battery strikes the perfect balance between offering day-long use from the phone as well as keeping the weight on the lighter side.
Solid display paired with a revamped S Pen
The Note10 features an impressive 6.3-inch Infinity-O display with a cutout in the center-top for the front-facing camera. The Dynamic AMOLED screen is one of the brightest and most accurate displays in the industry, delivering images in full HD+ and comes with an HDR10+ certification. Even when turned up to maximum brightness, the screen maintains a perfect black colour, making it perfect for those who like to catch up on their video content on the go.
In making the move from the Note9 to the Note10, the S Pen has gained the ability to convert handwriting to text--a handy and extremely sought-after feature that users have been looking forward to for years. Samsung's OneUI software can be setup with a transcribe-and-export option, converting your S Pen notes into text and exporting them into Word docs, PDFs, or any one of the number of formats available.
Perfect for recording HD videos
The Samsung Galaxy Note10 shares the same camera sensors as the Samsung S10, which is a very good thing considering how good the picture quality turns out to be. The triple-lense rear camera setup on the Note10 includes 12MP wide-angle lens, a 12 MP telephoto lens, and an ultra-wide lens that can take 123-degree pictures. A fourth sensor, a VGA depth camera, is also thrown in for better depth-of-field and excellent bokeh shots.
While the images are great, it is when recording videos that the Note10 blows the competition away. Not only is the quality of recorded video incredible, the phone's Live Focus mode lets users blur the background and add special effects with incredible ease. Editing videos is also considerably easier on the Note10 compared to its predecessor thanks to an upgrade to the editing software as well the revamped S Pen.
Not having the largest display in the segment is actually a boon for this elegant powerhouse. What the display lacks in size, it more than makes up for in brilliant and stunning images. Very fitting considering how good it records videos too.
