Samsung is changing course with the design of the latest Galaxy Note10 phones that were announced this week. For one, it’s “phones” plural this time around with a large and small model. The S Pen is better than ever and the screen on the Galaxy Note10+ is larger than ever.
As for the smaller Galaxy Note10, the screen is about the size of the one on the Galaxy S10+ while the phone itself is smaller – about the size of the Galaxy S10. That’s a win in terms of screen-to-body ratio, but we need to talk about the resolution, 1080p+.
We got to spend some time with both phones and to our eyes, the 1080p+ Dynamic AMOLED panel looked fine. We can’t say the same about the 3.5mm headphone jack situation.
We cover all this and more in our hands-on video, including going over the differences between the Galaxy Note10 and Note10+ besides the size of the screen (i.e. battery, charging, camera extras).
Both Galaxy Note10 models have 5G versions too, the Galaxy Note10+ 5G is even available for pre-order in many countries (limited to countries with 5G networks, of course). However, other than the extra modem, they are identical to the LTE models.
MKBHD also mentions the lack of audio jack. It wouldn't surprise me if it makes a return in a future (no compromise) Note.
Sadly I doubt the Note 11 will bring back the 3.5 Jack, Just like Samsung haven't brought back the Removable Battery. The only thing next year is that all phones most likely as already mentioned is 5g will be as standard on all phones. Note...
Great Note10/ Note10+ hands-on video review, I saw a bunch of YT video reviews & they all except for this GSMA & Super Saf failed to mention the 3.5mm port removal.
