The Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ is the top-end model in Samsung’s 2019 Note lineup. But it shares many similarities with the smaller, lower-priced Note 10.
Notable differences include:
- A larger 6.8-inch AMOLED+ display running at 3040-by-1080 pixels
- A larger 4300mAh battery with 45-watt fast charging
- 12GB of RAM instead of 8GB
- The 256GB or 512GB of internal storage with microSD support up to 1TB
- A 5G-compatible variant
- A time of flight (ToF) 3D depth sensor on the rear camera.
While the display is technically more detailed than that smaller Note 10 display, reviewers found little difference in day to day use. However, the higher resolution also means the expanded battery provides similar battery life to the Note 10.
Also, while the battery supports 45-watt fast charger, the phone only ships with a 25-watt charger. So plan to spend a little more to get the fastest charging available.
With 12GB of RAM, the phone is a multi-tasking monster but still not quite a necessity for most users.
Reviewers also found that while the ToF sensor helped with augmented reality apps and slightly quicker autofocus, the Note 10’s camera is no slouch either.
The real star here is the added microSD slot for cheap storage expansion.
Otherwise, the phones are identical. Many reviewers actually recommend the standard Note 10 over the Note 10+ for most users. For more on what to expect from Samsung’s latest release, be sure to check out our summary of the Samsung Note 10.
