I bought this phone and I'm completely satisfied as I'm aware of processor capabilities. My one and the only disappointment is Note 10 lite doesn't have Live focus video recording. It has a Live focus photo.
dimitris27473, 07 Feb 2020Does the Note 10 lite or S10 lite support Samsung DeX?NO. They do not support Samsung DeX
Found from reviews that Note10 Lite has optical fingerprint sensor but it is still under-display and slower than dedicated rear optical FP sensor. No info yet on proximity sensor - whether it is ultrasonic/virtual one which had all sorts of issues for S10 users or the real IR hardware sensor.
Looks like Samsung finally made a decent phone again after many years.
- Is at least 76 mm wide like good old 16:9 ratio big phones, I hate very tall but narrow phones
- Telephoto, wide, ultrawide cams
- OLED with actually working Always on Display for notifications unlike the Chinese crap
- Very small, tolerable display hole, no huge notch or pop-up cam
- 3.5mm jack
- No curved edge nonsense (yay)
- Big battery, fast charging
- UFS 2.1
- Samsung gives Android updates
- Not overpriced like Samsung flagships
Only things I am not sure about are:
1. Ultrasonic fingerprint sensor which may be worse than dedicated rear fingerprint (already S10's FP had issues).
2. Ultrasonic proximity sensor which may again have issues (S10 and Note 10's has too)
I'mPhone, 07 Feb 2020Look at the Mi Note 10 (for photographers) and realme X2 Pro (for gamers) and they have better... moreX2 pro is garbage for gaming. Getting a proper gaming phone like ROG 2 is much better.

The 3.5mm headphone jack and non-curved screen I find it a more attractive buy than the more expensive Note 10 models, even without considering the price difference. With the stylus I find it a more attractive buy than any phones that are missing this feature (I use the stylus on my Note 8 quite frequently and wouldn't want a phone without one).

Anonymous, 06 Feb 2020It's "Lite" what do you expect? wireless charging? cutting edge processor? IP rating?Look at the Mi Note 10 (for photographers) and realme X2 Pro (for gamers) and they have better features and quality, both using aluminium body. Samsung also places ads in their notification bar (Samsung Push Service and Galaxy Gift), so there's just little value. The pen is the standing feature, but its Exynos chipset is underpowered when compared to the phones above. It also throttles very quickly. I would rather get a Note 9 or used Note 10 instead.
Anonymous, 06 Feb 2020Compared to Note 9 this is big downgrade -No USB 3.1 -No Iris Scaner -Worse Main Telephoto ... moreYou don't compare Note10 Lite with Note9, you compare the standard Note10 with Note9! Yes, both Note10 Lite and Note9 may have the same chipset, but you get a native ultrawide camera and latest Android version out of the box.

It cost $512.11 here in Nigeria but i think I'm gon stick longer with my A70.. probably see maybe there will be Note 11 Lite..
At that price its fair for real and Samsung has done well,but would still prefer it come with SD845 instead of the Exynos Chipset...Still great device at a great price.. Samsung got this nearly right
Its disgusting phone by samsung,ugly front camera,display very cheap,speaker not good,samsung takes money form us only for s pen
Compared to Note 9 this is big downgrade
-No USB 3.1
-No Iris Scaner
-Worse Main Telephoto and Front camera
lol, 06 Feb 2020looking for upgrade from note FE but Indonesian asking price is too much at 600 USD.. also is ... moreNote 9 S-pen costs around 20-25 euro. I guess its similar for S10. But it won't broke (except if you actually break it, like physically). Which also won't happen unless if you do it on purpose
looking for upgrade from note FE but Indonesian asking price is too much at 600 USD.. also is this bluetooth S-Pen only has 3 months warranty? How much they charge if it is broken?
Though it's a lite version but the spec is pretty good. If you don't mind the waterproof IP68, it's quite a bargain compare to the steep price of flagship.
GSMARENA should have done the S10lite review, Because that one has new type of camera. This one same as the note series/
I appreciate the flat screen, and don't care about the cpu downgrade. 9810 is still good enough.
However, if you consider the PLASTIC build, a price of 630€ is nothing but a brutal rip-off. You can already get the regular Note 10 (NON-Lite) for 619€ here in Germany. Why should I pay the same (or even slightly more) for something that's clearly worse?
For 300-350€, this would be a really good deal. For 400€, still nice. Anything above that is just massively overpriced, considering the low quality PLASTIC build and the several downgrades over the Note 10.
