It’s officially launched … the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+. So who’s getting one?
… Just look at the screen sizes of all the Notes since the original launched: 5.3 inches, 5.5 inches, 5.7 inches (four years in a row), 6.3 inches, 6.4 inches. They’ve only gotten bigger as the years have passed. This year, we’ll get the first shrinking in the series with the 6.3-inch Note 10, while also getting another bump in the 6.8-inch Note 10+. The funny thing is, I didn’t know how much I wanted a mini Note until I held one.
Both Notes feature a Dynamic AMOLED panel that’s HDR10+ certified, meaning you can expect rich, vibrant colors and wide dynamic range. A good display is par for the course for Samsung by now, but I’m still impressed by them.
I do need to point out, though, that the Note 10 runs at a relatively low full HD+ resolution, which is irksome in a phone that costs $950. Last year’s Note 9 had a quad HD screen and only cost $50 more. The Note 10+ starts out at $1,100, and in addition to the bigger and sharper screen, that money gets you a bigger battery (4,300mAh vs 3,500mAh), more RAM (12GB vs 8GB), and a microSD card slot. Yep, the Note 10 doesn’t offer expandable storage so you’re stuck at 256GB, while the 10+ also comes in a 512GB model.
