Samsung Galaxy Note 10: review of the flagship with an excellent display and camera

At the end of the summer, the Korean tech giant Samsung launched its new smartphones on the market – the data should

flagships of the Note 10 and its "plus" version.Let's take a closer look at the standard version, because it's the one that is most bought.

Design, screen

The diagonal of the "notebook ten" 6.3 ”, which is slightly larger than the S10. The edges of the screen are rounded in the style of Edge, to some users this may seem unusual and uncomfortable, but over time you get used to it. Moreover, after a while you can’t imagine how you can live without having to swipe along the edge of the menu with frequently used applications.

The display quality is excellent, in fact, Samsung -number one in quality screen mobile devices. The OLED matrix with a resolution of 2280x1080 is very clear, contrasting, the margin of brightness is huge, even in direct sunlight, everything is visible perfectly. Almost 100 percent sRGB coverage, DCI-P3 as well. The brightness is automatically adjusted by the algorithms and the sensors work accurately and accurately, adapting the screen to external conditions. It may seem to some that the resolution numbers are not very large, but not a single indignant will notice the difference in any application between HD and FHD, the human eye is simply not able to notice such things.

The body is completely covered with protective glass, the frame,naturally metallic. I came across a version of a beautiful red color - spectacular, fresh. The cameras are now located in a vertical block, a flash is located nearby, but not in a single module, the moment is not very harmonious.


The camera here is the same as in 10+, but withoutdepth sensor or TimeFlight, but without it, the bokeh effect is excellent. The resolution of the main sensor is standard for the manufacturer - 12 megapixels. Which is very significant for fans of racing for megapixels. Chinese “flagships” like to brag of dozens of megapixels, and now for 100, but the photos they always get are much worse than the flagships Samsung and Apple. Aperture is able to physically switch from 1.5 to 2.4. The second sensor received teleoptics, there is an optical stabilizer. The third 16 megapixel sensor with wide-angle optics.

The quality of the resulting photos is ideal formobile cameras, all pictures are as detailed as possible, color reproduction is close to natural. In general, this is a real flagship among camera phones. True, Huawei’s P30 Pro now argued with him in night mode, and this is good, so there will be progress, because the Chinese smartphone has more than 40 megapixels. Recording 60FPS video in UHD resolution.


About iron stuffing and flagship performanceit makes little sense to say, they all get the same top-end processor, a lot of RAM and a capacious drive. At the same time, the real performance in applications is not visible to the user, since last year’s flagships work very quickly and smoothly. The power gain is visible only in special test utilities, where benchmarks give out points that do not mean anything to most smartphone owners. The game pulls everything at the highest settings, the rest will be pulled by the most budget smartphone. The processor here is the Exynos 9825.

With equipment, too, everything is in order, but there arenuances, there is no microSD card receiver and analog mini-jack for headphones. You can live without a memory card, a capacious drive - 256 gigabytes, and no one canceled cloud storage, but there are as many places as you like. Here you can’t connect your favorite headphones. And the adapter is not included, but there are headphones for USB-C. The wireless interfaces here are the most modern, even the LTE modem holds the speed of two gigabits, the sixth generation WiFi, the fifth generation Bluetooth, there is contactless charging, the case is waterproof, the screen supports the stylus that comes with it - S Pen. In addition to just entering information, pictures and notes, the stylus has a lot more that can do, up to working with the camera and media players.


Video playback discharges battery for 11hours, and in the standard scenario of using a smartphone lasts for a day and a half. At 50 percent, the device can be charged in just half an hour, 100 minutes is spent on charging from zero to 100 percent.
