Samsung’s settled into a nice little twice-yearly schedule for releasing flagships. That’s allowed the company double the opportunity to introduce some nice upgrades to their high-end Android handsets. Nearly six months after the release of the S10, the company just dropped the new Note line. Here’s a whole bunch of words I wrote about the 10+, the larger of the devices, which is helping distinguish the two lines with an utterly gigantic 6.8 inch screen.
Interestingly the Note 10 marks a rare (albeit very slight) step down in screen size over the last generation to a still large 6.3 inches. The company says it’s hoping that the smaller device will appeal to first time Note users and maybe even convince Galaxy S buyers to transfer over to S-Pen Station.
The smaller size also helps keep the device just under $1,000, at $949. Which is become shockingly rarer amongst flagships these days. Even as fewer people are buyer phones, they keep getting more expensive. That certainly applies to the $1,100 Note 10+ and the $1,299 Note 10+ 5G (also available now, as a Verizon exclusive).
The TLDR of last week’s review is that this is a very good phone that gets even better. Nothing particularly revolutionary, but it’s a nice design, great camera and just generally good stuff all the way around. If big and flashy is your thing, Samsung’s got you covered with the new Note.
