If you prize tasteful design and big displays, then Samsung has lots to offer. Two of its finest, similarly priced telephones are the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus along with the Galaxy S10 Plus, but how can you pick between them? That is where we come in, using this spec comparison which will explain just what each telephone offers and emphasize the areas in which they disagree.
Performance, battery lifetime, and charging
Both phones use the strong Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, which provides fast, smooth functionality. The Note 10 Plus includes 12GB of RAM, irrespective of whether you choose the 256GB or 512GB version. You are going to need to be a monster multitasker to feel that the gap . For all intents and purposes, you can anticipate the exact same amount of performance from the two of these phones.
The Note 10 Plus has a border in battery capacity using a 4,300mAh battery, but it also has a larger screen to power, which consumes that 200mAh advantage. Within our battery test, the Note 10 Plus managed to go for 12 hours and 30 minutes, however the S10 Plus managed an extra 10 minutes. The determining factor here is the charging because the Note 10 Plus includes a 25-watt charger, but may be charged at up to 45W if you buy the ideal kit individually — which means it can be charged up a lot quicker than the S10 Plus, that is stuck at 15W. Both have wireless charging support and may control different devices, such as Galaxy Buds, by placing them on the back of the telephone.
Winner: Samsung Galaxy Notice 10 Plus
Design and durability
Samsung’s tasteful design is a real sight to behold, and the two of these smartphones are among the best-looking around. The glass front and rear curve into a metallic framework, but the Note 10 Plus is slightly more blocky, whereas the S10 Plus includes more rounded corners. On the back, the S10 Plus includes a horizontally coordinated camera package, whereas the Note 10 Plus has vertically stacked lenses counter to the leftside. Both are available in a range of colours, but the eye-catching aura glow version of the Note really stands out. Around the front, the Note includes a single hole-punch camera in the top centre of the screen, while the S10 Plus includes a dual-lens front-facing camera counter to the right.
Both are delicate, so cases are advisable. Water is nothing to worry about, though, because they boast IP68 ratings, which means they can survive submersion unscathed.
The S10 Plus is lighter, smaller, and much easier to handle; the Note 10 Plus is huge. The S10 Plus also includes a headset port and a Bixby button, both of which can be absent in the Note.
Winner: Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus
You’ll enjoy a vibrant, glowing Dynamic AMOLED display, no matter which of those phones you decide on. It’s a stunning display that is HDR10+ accredited and boasts a resolution of 3,040 x 1,440 pixels. Since the Note 10 Plus includes a 6.8-inch screen along with the S10 Plus has a 6.4-inch screen, and they both have that same resolution, the smaller screen is slightly sharper, but you won’t really see a difference.
The single central lens at the Note 10 Plus is slightly less distracting than the dual-lens from the S10 Plus, but you’ll quickly get used to . We can’t separate them here.
The cameras are extremely similar, but the Note 10 Plus offers two edges in the main camera: The telephoto lens has a larger aperture to get better low-light functionality, and there is a fourth lens in the form of a time-of-flight sensor, which can capture accurate depth information and should improve portrait style and Live Focus video. Select pictures from the Note 10 Plus are slightly better than the S10 Plus, but not by much. These advancements are subtle.
Samsung has also added a brand new Zoom-in Mic attribute to let you zoom in on audio when recording video. It also worked to increase stabilization from the Note 10 Plus.
Around front, the S10 Plus wins out using a dual-lens camera which pairs 10-megapixel and 8-megapixel lenses. The Notice 10 Plus has a lone 10-megapixel lens. Selfie lovers will likely prefer the S10 Plus, even though only the Note 10 Plus has a Night Mode that functions on the front camera. We’re giving the Note 10 Plus the triumph.
With Android 9.0 Pie and Samsung’s One UI skin on the top, you’re in for a fantastic software experience here. The Note 10 Plus includes a few extras that relate to its S Pen stylus, but all the important stuff, including lots of customization options, exists on both telephones.
Regrettably, Samsung doesn’t have a great update record and may take some time to roll out fresh Android variants, but that’s going to be much the same using both mobiles, therefore it does not differentiate them.
There is a flexible camera suite, A.I. assistant Bixby, DeX mode to enable your phone to double as a desktop computer, and much more in Samsung’s bag of tricks, but what sets these telephones apart is your S Pen. Just the Note has a pop-out stylus that can be used to write notes, sketch, or even doodle in your friends’ faces in 3D with augmented reality. Samsung also boosted the Note productivity credentials with some Microsoft tie-ins which make it easy to mirror your cellphone’s screen to your desktop, though these might also come to the S10 Plus via a software update.
Cost and availability
The Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus begins from $1,000. The Note 10 Plus will cost you an additional $100 for the least expensive model. Both are very widely available and may be picked up at all the major carriers.
Overall winner: Samsung Galaxy Notice 10 Plus
For most people, the S10 Plus is much more than enough — and you’ll be able to find it for less than its original retail cost — but the Note 10 Plus is for men and women who really want the S Pen features, in addition to the superfast recharging speed. It’s also likely to be unwieldy for a great deal of people because it’s so significant. Ultimately, these are both spectacular mobiles with plenty to offer, so you can hardly fail.
