Samsung Note 10 Review: The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 is the smaller version of the Galaxy Note. It is a perfect mobile for the people who look for a light and pocket-friendly phone. The Galaxy 10 is 13.5% smaller and 17% lighter than the Note 10 Plus in terms of looks, though it is somewhat similar in its mechanism.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 was launched in August 2019. The phone has a 6.30-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1080×2280 pixels and a bright pixel density of 401 pixels. It is powered by a 1.9GHz octa-core Samsung Exynos 9825 processor. The phone runs on Android 9 Pie and is powered by a 3500mAh battery. The phone has a 12-megapixel primary camera, a 16-megapixel camera, and a 12-megapixel camera on the rear with a phase detection autofocus feature. The front camera is a 10-megapixel camera for selfies.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 has One UI based on Android 9 Pie and packs 256GB storage. It is a dual-SIM smartphone available in Aura Black, Aura Glow, Aura White, and Aura Red. There are sensors like accelerometer, ambient light sensor, barometer, magnetometer, gyroscope, proximity sensor, fingerprint sensor, and the new face unlock feature with 3D face recognition.
The tech giant, Samsung decided to remove the microSD expansion feature from the Note 10. This is surprising considering the Note 10 256GB storage, and being smaller, it would have been a perfect choice for microSD expansion. Besides memory expansion, Note 10 has 8GB of RAM on the 256GB version. The performance of Note 10 is excellent, with 8GB of RAM.
The best feature of the Note 10 perhaps is its size. The phone has a superb Samsung display with a Samsung Galaxy S Pen that comes not even to the bulkier Note 10 Plus.
