8 reasons to Buy Samsung Galaxy Note 10 plus


It has everything you can imagine: the latest charging technologies, a productive chipset with a margin of safety for several years, the best screen of all that is available on the market, and also a larger diagonal. In terms of the set of characteristics, not a single device approaches the Note line, and if you recall the unique S Pen, the gap becomes huge. True, the question is how much you need the S Pen. In my opinion, if you are sure that you do not need it, then looking at Note 10 + is not so interesting, there is the same S 10 + and other models of the company. Let's look at the Galaxy Note 10 Plus and what it offers to consumers.



Reason # 1. Operating time, battery, quick charge


Perhaps one of the main specifications for a modern smartphone is how long it can work on a single charge. The minimum time that suits users is a full-time job, from morning to late evening. Ideally, this should be a few days of work.

In Note 10 +, the battery is 4300 mAh, which is not a record for flagships. But Super Fast Charging first appears in this unit along with a 45-watt charger. In thirty minutes you can get a charge that is enough for a full-time job during the day. The flagships of last year gave the same operating time per hour of charging. A complete charger at 25 watts, it is a little slower, but not at all twice, as someone judges from the numbers. 

It turns out that the complete charge is fast (in the same iPhone they put the slow and old charge initially), but you can buy it as an alternative even faster. Here, everyone chooses for himself. I like the fact that it is possible to choose both one and the other charge, but in both cases, you will get a very fast battery charge. I’m so used to fast charging over the years, that I don’t leave the phone overnight in the charger, it’s just not necessary. In the morning, regardless of how much percent of the charge is on the smartphone, even half an hour is enough for me to charge the device.

Traditionally supported by reverse charging, it is convenient for wireless headphones, watches. I have long refused to carry separate chargers for accessories with me, I can charge them anywhere - at least in a cafe, at least in a hotel. And all I need for this is my smartphone.

Wireless charging in Note 10 + 2.0, it is also fast, maximum power 15 watts. For comparison, the basic fast charge for the iPhone is 18 watts, wireless charging, which Apple calls fast, is only 7.5 watts. Feel the difference.

Due to the new type of screen in Note 10 +, a 7 nm processor, as well as additional optimization, this smartphone lives at least full time at 7-8 hours of screen operation. A very hardy smartphone, however, the entire Note series was distinguished by this.


Reason number 2. The best display on the market - maximum diagonal, resolution, excellent color reproduction


Samsung independently develops many components that are used in smartphones. The key component of the smartphone, in my opinion, is the screen, since it is in it that we watch for hours daily. Samsung's display quality is such that they are used by all other manufacturers, including Apple. But the company leaves the best screens for its flagships, does not share them with others.

In Note 10 +, the screen is as similar to S10 + as possible, but it has a larger diagonal of 6.8 inches. This is Dynamic AMOLED, the color rendering is excellent, the eyes from the screen do not get tired.

Almost completely there are no frames, there are no false positives on the side surfaces. And the rounding of the edges is minimal, although it cannot be called completely flat. As for me, this is an almost ideal display device, I will list briefly how it stands out:

The Dynamic AMOLED screen on the Galaxy Note 10 received a certificate from the German scientific and technological association VDE about a 100% indicator (color volume on Mobile Color Volume mobile devices) in the DCI-P3 color space. This means that on such a screen, the images will not be blurry, and the colors will remain saturated at any brightness level. 

The brightness of the Galaxy Note 10 screen can reach 1200 nits in separate parts of the screen (like modern TVs), which significantly improves the quality of the photo, improving the contrast between black and white. 

Compared with the Galaxy Note 9, the contrast ratio of the Galaxy Note 10 is 2,000,000: 1, which makes the image more immersive. 

The Dynamic AMOLED screen received a rating of 0.4 from Display Mate experts based on its JNCD score (the least noticeable color differences). The JNCD measurement evaluates color accuracy based on the smallest color difference a person can see. The closer the JNCD of the screen to zero, the more accurate the color reproduction.

Thanks to the expanded WCG color space compared to the standard SDR, the color range of the Galaxy Note10 is 36% wider (compared to Note 9). 

Visibility in the street in the High Brightness Mode is 800 nits, which is 14% brighter than on the Galaxy Note 9. This is the brightness for the entire screen, and not for individual zones, as with peak brightness.

Traditionally, there is Always On Display, which is missing on the iPhone, in standby mode, it is an opportunity to just see the time, notification icons on the screen without touching the smartphone.


Reason number 3. S Pen and stylus control


The key feature of the Note line was the availability of the S Pen, this stylus allows you to perform many actions, write on the screen, and your text is immediately recognized, drawn by hand or draw drawings. No manufacturer was able to repeat this and make the software as sophisticated and interesting. The important point is that the S Pen is hiding in the case, always near you.



In Note 10, remote control of applications is taken to a new level, you can show a presentation from a smartphone and scroll through slides using the S Pen, you can take photos by setting up a phone somewhere, or you can control applications using gestures in the air. A kind of remote control that is always near you.

Recognition of the text for the first time brought to the level where it is recognized and immediately converted to text. It will be interesting for everyone who is used to writing. I understand that there are few such people, but often this is a habit for lawyers, doctors, and others. For them, there is simply no alternative to the Note line.

Most owners use S Pen from time to time, for example, I have just such scenarios. But at these moments, S Pen helps a lot, because otherwise, it would be impossible to take some pictures (for example, if there was my shadow in the frame), or this is an opportunity to record important things quickly. Moreover, this demonstrates that you are writing, and not doing something else, for example, sitting on social networks on the phone. For business people in corporate meetings, this is a very useful quality. I will not list all the unique features of S Pen, there are too many of them. And if you try to master them, then you will probably start to use something, if not all.


Reason number 4. AR-doodles - an emotional toy


Using S Pen, you can not only write or draw, but a special AR-doodle camera mode has appeared (look in the S Pen menu). The camera understands that you are looking at the person’s face, and you can draw on a neon mustache, a crown or something else. Even if a person moves, then the picture is attached to him, and this is not bad.

The chip is purely additional, but the emotional charge that it gives is difficult to overestimate. People love to play with various filters in programs that take selfies or photos of people. There are much more opportunities to “decorate" the photo; both young and old play it. Again, much depends on who and how you communicate, for young people it will be extremely interesting, adult and serious - unnecessary. But the chip is cool and will find its consumer.

Also, you can paint not only people but also space, geography also remains.


Reason number 5. Photography and Video - A New Level of Opportunity


My choice of flagships largely determines, among other things, the presence of high-quality cameras, they allow you to pull everything out of the picture that is possible and win against competitors. The video recording quality was always good, but not ideal, the same iPhone was ahead of the Galaxy line by this parameter. In Note 10 +, the emphasis was placed both on the photo and the video. The quality of the latter has grown significantly, and this is largely due to both the processor and the processing algorithms. There are new shooting modes, for example, blurring the background in the video.

Even when zooming the picture in the video, the sound source is highlighted, that is, excess noise is cut off, what you see is highlighted. It is also a useful thing for those who create content.

In photography, the algorithms for processing images are slightly adjusted to the hardware, autofocus is faster, misses less (earlier it was also excellent, now the speed of work has increased slightly). In a detailed review of the photo, I will focus on the model turned out to be very high quality in this aspect. And if there was a compromise in the video before, now it’s not there.

Reason # 6. Samsung DeX - turning a smartphone into a computer


Another unique feature when, having bought a docking station, you can turn your smartphone into a personal computer. You can connect a keyboard, mouse and display or TV to it - this will allow you to work on the phone, not on the PC.

In addition to this, in Note 10 +, you can use a regular cable to connect your smartphone to a computer and get instant access to all files, the ability to work in familiar programs without having to install them on a PC. Conveniently? Not that word. Everything works seamlessly and instantly. Plus for Windows users - this is an instant login to their account and access to all files in the cloud.


Reason number 7. Fingerprint sensor integrated into the screen


A standard feature, but in the absence of such an unlock, a direct competitor in the face of the iPhone needs to be said about this. Maximum anti-fake protection, fast operation - all this characterizes a fingerprint scanner built into the screen. And this even though the unlock function on the face remained, but it is not used when playing from the phone. Everyone can choose the method of unlocking that is convenient for him. For many, it is the fingerprint that is the priority method of unlocking, and not that of the face.

Reason number 8. Smartphone screen recording, comments, and pictures in real-time


The chip is one of many, but for those who create content, it is extremely important. You can not only record what is happening on the screen but right there, using the S Pen, draw, write and so on. It seems that someone does not care, but more importantly, new game modes, performance, and so on. But in my opinion, in our time, when many people create streams or video content, such features, coupled with a built-in video editor, provide a very powerful tool. Frivolous? Perhaps, but I like this feature, and in terms of its combination of features it is better implemented than anywhere else.


The cost of Note 10 + in the basic version (12/256 GB) is 1049 dollars. This is more than an adequate price for a flagship with maximum features and capabilities.

As you can see, we have listed eight reasons that can be significant to seriously consider the purchase of Note 10 +. Ideal products in the world do not exist, sometimes the pros outweigh the cons, sometimes everything is exactly the opposite. But Note 10 + is one of the most interesting models in 2019-2020.
