Samsung should've called this the Note10e and the Note10+ the Note10 but i actually understand why. This is a great phone so thumbs up to Samsung

Finally samsung done it right. As a note user since note 4, i use spen on daily basis for my work and cant live without it, for years im thinking that note should ve been for power user that actually need the spen. For those who simply want a flagship phone with everything in it but barely use spen.. theres the s series. S10 is pretty... has the best of everything samsung has just for people can brag abt it. All those possible without having spen eating the precious internal space.
But for people like me... the current spen iteration is amazing... the smallish note 10 size is perfect for confidently hold the phone while quickly do scribbles even some illustration and simple artwork. No need for super hires screen that eats battery life. It is the best phone with stylus, and for that i dont mind the price. Only wish it actually a tad thicker to fit more battery.
I dont think people understand what note is all about really... and all this time samsung is trying to make everyone happy... for once... now... they got it right!
Why did GSM arena stop doing Sunlight readability/legibility tests? Display mate does not test as many phones as you guys do and I relied on that test for every phone I sought out to test or use next...

For all the features they removed (and some others they have not improved over the years), I just decided to replace my Note8 this month for something not Samsung after being their customer for 5 years. Maybe next year...
As a 5 year long Samsung Note user, I won't be getting.the Note 10 nor the 10+. The price had become outrageous, the wow factor isn't there, and features-wise other than the S-Pen (which I only use like 3 times a week) there ia nothing that separates the Note lineup from the pack anymore.
I'm sad about seeing the 3.5mm jack gone (as Samsung mocked other companies for leaving out such feature), I'm also sad about Samsung not bringing a higher refresh rate for that beautiful display, they just no longer seem to be the innovative company I'd dig for their phones everytime I was looking to upgrade.
Having said so, I just ordered a OP 7 Pro. I know it's missing the jack as well, but if I can't get all the features I want, at least I'm saving a ton of money. Let's see how a $5 USB-C to 3.5mm dongle fares for me.

Can it beat ATH-M50X, Sennheiser HD 6xx and other $200 and above flagship headphones out there? Don't forget where you came from. Berating Beats by Dre for the $300 price where brands such as Audio Technica/ Beyerdynamic/Sennheiser/AKG can do better than Beats at a cheaper price. Stick to headphone jacks man.
How can you beat Osu! if you have high latency bluetooth headsets?
dont like the hole in the middle, only a little upgrade cost 1000+ thats kinda rip only good if you are using note 8/ s8 or below imo...
Cant understand why people care the headphone jack that much when there are many bt wireless earbud options in the market.
Anonymous, 04 Sep 2019Enjoy the halo-ed and noisy photos taken by your favourite brand then.You just described the characteristics of photos coming out of this phone's camera, congrats.
I hope they bring the headphone jack back in the next Note. For now, I won't upgrade because of that missing feature.
The coma on the 2x is unbelievable, it's on the level of a traditional average quality double gauss pushed to f/1.4, or even f/1.2, but it's f/2.1 with supposedly complex aspherics considering the easy of molding plastic of that size.
hopefully note 9 is the last flagship of samsung and it remain until the next note coming i mean after note 10, note 10 plus cause they're not flagships as i owned both and ruffly found note 9 better than any other note and everything is super perfect (speed, no flags during game, no heat prob, smooth usage, long long life battery) same as nokia 3310 :d
Price doesnt equal Quality sadly. All known manufacturers are on par with samsung right now, as for Hardware Options even opted out Samsung in some categories. Softwarewise we all know Samsung seen worse days but isn't shining today either. You won't know this if you are a Samsung fanboy for years, since you never experienced anything else. Therefore it's sad to see them lifting the price without offering something to justify it. As said before: their quality is not any better than on other phones, I tried many.
That said, why do people keep telling us 6" phones are "compact"? People don't care if the screen to body ratio is nice, but if they can operate their phone without dropping it. I got plenty of friends with pretty small hands. They are still stuck on 5 year old phones 4,6" just because they never wanted to go above 5" let alone 6"! So then, why offering 6,1" and 6,8" when there is just 150$ in between? Offer a 5,5" Note (maybe with a sized down pen?) for those people NOT owning a phone 1 or 2 years old and you will hit a niche yet unset by ANY brand. Don't tell me there is an S-phone for this, there isnt!

Well for me. Samsung can kiss my money goodbye. thank god for competition. for FAR less i can get much more apart from few details. may competition remain strong that's all i can say.
