The Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ shares most of the connections and devices with the Galaxy S10 series, with a few exceptions. Samsung is equipped with a USB 3.1 Type-C port for its latest flagship model, which supports outputting images via HDMI or DisplayPort. The port also allows the device to transfer data quickly. Samsung also sells DeX Docking Station, it can connect external peripherals via Bluetooth or USB.
In addition, Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ supports all near field communication standards, such as Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, MST, and Ant +. Bluetooth dual audio is also restored, but Samsung still refuses to support HWA and aptX HD. However, Samsung is continuing to use the heart rate sensor, which is still installed near the rear camera on the back of the device.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ is a dual sim card device with microSD card scalability, which is different from the Galaxy Note 10. Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ supports microSD cards up to 1tb, but they cannot be formatted as internal storage, nor can applications be stored internally by default. You can enforce the latter in Developer Options.
If you think that the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ is actually a complete smart phone, that’s excusable. However, this device does not have an infrared transmitter (you need to buy a remote controller for the air conditioner at home), a radio receiver and a headphone jack (at present, no HIFI-level Bluetooth headset has been found, remember to comment and tell me if it has).
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ uses a 6.8-inch dynamic AMOLED display with a screen aspect ratio of 19: 9. The resolution is 3040 x 1440, which can provide a clear pinpoint image, but Samsung set it to 2280 x 1080 by default. The Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ has a pixel density of 371 PPI and 1080p, but the resolution can be increased to 1440p in the settings.
The Galaxy Note series has always had good battery life, and the Samsung Galaxy Note10 + has made things a little better by having a slim body and a battery of up to 4,300 mAh. Despite having a 6.8-inch giant screen, the device can easily complete our battery test. Talking time, standby, and video playback scores are all good. The difference between Samsung Galaxy Note10 + and Samsung Galaxy S10 + is stingy because Samsung Galaxy Note10 + offers better video playback and 3G talk time. If you use your Samsung Galaxy Note10 + phone every day, a single battery charge will last longer during browsing and video playback.
Over the years, Samsung has brought competitive fast charging technology to its flagship devices. Samsung Galaxy Note10+ supports two fast charging speeds–25W and 45W. Both pass through a USB-C to USB-C cable that complies with the USB Power Delivery 3.0 standard. The bad news is that the retail box of the model only has a 25W wall charger, so you have to buy a 45W charger separately and it is not cheap. The good news is that even 25W chargers are fast enough to compete in today’s market. The Samsung Galaxy Note10+ ‘s 25W charger has a faster charging speed than the OnePlus 7 Pro’s 30W charging speed, and compare to the P30 Pro’s 40W SuperCharge, the result is a percentage point lower. Keep in mind that the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ has a bigger battery level than those both phones, but is slightly different.
As we mentioned earlier, Samsung equipped the Galaxy Note 10+ with Exynos 9825 SoC. As the name suggests, this is a small modification of the Exynos 9820 in the Galaxy S10 series. The main difference between SoCs is their manufacturing process, Samsung switched from 8nm EUV to 7nm EUV. Exynos 9825 and Exynos 9820 have the same ARM malig-g76 MP12 GPU. Samsung also equipped the SoC with 12 gb of LPDDR4x RAM.
Early indications show that Exynos 9825 has slightly improved performance compared to Exynos 9820. For example, in the test, Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ scored about 6% higher than Galaxy S10 5G.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ is an extremely attractive phone, although its price is significantly higher than its previous phone model. But the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ ‘s ultrasonic fingerprint sensor and camera are improved over the Samsung Galaxy Note 9. By the way, although S-Pen works well, we suspect that few people will find any added value in daily use.
Overall we think this beautiful phone — Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ is a great smart phone.
