9/10
Informr score
The Samsung Galaxy Note10+ currently has an Informr score of 9 out of 10. This score is based on our evaluation of 73 sources including reviews from users and the web's most trusted critics.

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.

What the Critics Are Saying...


Techaeris

The Note10+ is still the king of Samsung devices. While it has plenty of features, many are likely to be unused except by the biggest power users. A solid device with a great screen, battery life, and performance, the cost may deter some users from picking up the device.

The device can do pretty much everything you want, and comes with capabilities that you’ll never use. But at the end of the day, it remains pretty much the only device that comes with a stylus, so if you’re looking for such a smartphone, it is definitely worth a chance.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ has a large high-definition display which simply invites the user to play movies—and its multiple cameras invite users to create video content of their own. It could be argued that Samsung has just about accomplished this for playback. The Note 10+’s playback of the files we use to test all our devices were, on the whole, rendered well by the smartphone speakers. Even so, at this price point, we would expect the device to do better for bass and volume.

Undeniably, the Samsung Galaxy Note series is primarily targeting business users. The performance of the latest Galaxy Note 10+ is on another level especially the expanded Samsung DeX desktop that lets you run DeX on your existing PC and then keep it with you on just your phone. If videography and creativity is your thing, the Galaxy Note 10+ wouldn’t let you down with its video recording and S-Pen features either.

The Galaxy Note 10+ is Samsung’s largest phone yet and feels like one of the most luxurious devices on the market. This is due to three key factors: the reflective Aura Glow back of the phone, its expansive full-screen camera mode, and its S Pen, which is enjoyable to use, even if some of its air features are a bit gimmicky. All in all, this is a powerful smartphone whose £999 price tag is obviously a fair bit – but justifies itself somewhat given the recent iPhone launch announcements.

Buy the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ if you desperately want a premium-looking Android smartphone with a good display and can bear with slower software updates. Or if you just cannot do without the S Pen.
