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.

If you’re looking for something bold, a smartphone that makes a statement then the Samsung Galaxy Note10 Plus should have your attention thanks to its enormous 6.8-inch display and stylish S-pen.

The Galaxy Note10+ is an excellent device that builds upon past devices with a great camera, smooth performance and fun to use S Pen.
The Galaxy Note10+ turned out an unlikely favorite at the office. After repeated conversations how it's nothing all that impressive - little more than just an S10+ with a stylus; an incremental upgrade over the Note9, you name it - we know you had the same sentiments in late August, more people went...
- Chris Martin, Tech Advisor
As it typical for the Note, this 10th edition is a truly amazing smartphone... but only for those that can afford it and really want this size of device. There's no doubt Samsung has made the Note 10+ the best edition yet with better cameras, an amazing screen and lots more impressive tech. However,...
