Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus review
Stunning in every way
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus has one of the biggest displays on the market. The 6.8-inch Infinity-O Cinematic Display boasts a fine resolution to take advantage of the big screen. The display resolution is 498 pixels per inch with 3,040x 1,440 pixels (Quad HD+).

Screen features such as Dynamic AMOLED, HDR10+, and Dynamic Tone Mapping are included. These manage the viewing experience so it is bright and vivid under any light. The Galaxy Note 10 Plus also removes harmful blue light, without compromising on colour, to reduce the risk of eye strain.
Durable and peak performance
The phone measures 7.9mm and weighs in at 196g. The 7nm 2.73GHz processor with 12GB RAM has enhanced NPU and an improved AI for less lag and better gaming. To make sure heat isn’t a problem, there is a newly designed vapour chamber cooling system.
Corning Gorilla Glass 6 along with a highly-polished metal provide a tough shell for the Galaxy Note 10+. You have two colours to choose from with Aura Black or Aura Glow. IP68 certification protects the phone against water, splashes, and the rain.
Phone Set Up
Ultrasonic fingerprint reader
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ has an Ultrasonic Fingerprint Scanner under the display. You simply tap the fingerprint icon on the screen and the phone scans the 3D ridges and valleys of your finger. If you prefer, you can secure the Note 10 Plus with Face Recognition or a PIN code.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus has up to 512GB of internal storage. There is a microSD card slot, which lets you boost the memory by up to another 1TB.
The S Pen is one of the things the Note range has become known and loved for. The new version is more useful than ever. You can instantly turn your handwriting into text with Text Export. You can create a Screen Off Memo without opening an app and save it or pin it to the Always On Display.
You can create drawings in 3D with AR Doodle or use Air Actions to flick through photos, control the camera zoom, and adjust the volume. You can also control presentations, take a photo, or play and pause the video. With up to ten hours standby, you can use the S Pen without worrying about draining the battery.
The One UI (user interface) is based on Android 9 Pie. The UI simplifies interactions and refines the experience. In particular, elements that you can tap, like buttons or contacts, are kept in the lower half of the display to make them easier to use one-handed.
As on previous models, you get the Edge Panels and the option to use a 15 second Video Wallpaper.
The Bixby assistant is on hand to make tasks easier, from your daily routine to discover more about what you see around you. Some of the top features of Bixby include:
