Technologically, and objectively, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 has an excellent chassis design (second only to the S10+), the best display on the market, one of the best mobile camera systems, leading performance, excellent battery capacity, and charge speed. More subjectively, the Galaxy Note 10 is a perfect phone for large-screen fans – in that category, it’s the best you can get today, short of a foldable phone, such as the Galaxy Fold, which has just been released to the public in some parts of the world.

A compact high-end phone with a stylus

The Galaxy Note10 is easy to recommend to someone looking for a compact high-end phone with a stylus - there simply isn't any other. And it's an amazing phone even if the S Pen doesn't do anything for you. It also feels fresh enough design-wise if you are already bored of the design language used for the Galaxy S8 through S10.

Smaller phone, bigger expectations

from The Verge

The point of the matter is if you’ve long been intrigued by the S Pen’s capabilities but put off by the fact that you needed to buy a giant phone to get them, the Note 10 puts the S Pen in a smaller phone than ever before. That is the only real reason to purchase the Note 10.

The right size at the wrong price

The Galaxy Note 10 squeezes a 6.3-inch screen into a phone that’s about the same size as an iPhone XS. And it’s much easier to use with one hand than any other entry in the Note line.

The Galaxy Note 10 squeezes a 6.3-inch screen into a phone that’s about the same size as an iPhone XS. And it’s much easier to use with one hand than any other entry in the Note line. The Note 10 is largely the same as the 10+. That means the same powerful performance and basically the same cameras. But, it does make tradeoffs to shave off those millimeters: most notably it has a lower-res screen, less RAM and Samsung ditched the microSD slot. Sadly, the price didn’t get the same treatment and remains as huge as ever.

A cheaper and entry-level model to the Note series

Think of the Galaxy Note 10 as an entry-level to the Note series, with it offering a slimmed-down experience compared to the Note 10+. Little has changed from the Note 9 too, with some features also having been removed.

The smaller footprint is infinitely more manageable and enjoyable. Unfortunately, opting for the smaller Note 10 means missing out on a few features you'll only find on the pricier Galaxy Note 10+, including more battery life, a MicroSD card slot for expandable storage, more RAM, faster charging, and support for 5G. For our money, the Note 10 is still the better overall package, but it's a shame you'll have to forgo a lot more than just screen real estate if you pick it up over the bigger Note 10+.

The Note 10 still represents the culmination of almost eight year’s worth of smartphone innovation. However, the Note 10 still suffers from the same key criticism I had of last year’s phone. Samsung’s notetaking phablet is merely a phone of incremental upgrades – with a few minor tweaks in a couple of places, and not all of them are for the better. It may still be at the top of the class, but with the lack of a 5G variant and that avaricious asking price, the Note feels like an upgrade that’s increasingly hard to justify.
